Feedback on the PRS-300 fonts? Same as the 505?

I'm considering the PRS-300, and I would like to have some feedback about the default fonts.
Are they the same as the PRS-505 default fonts, or are they better?

I disliked the 505 fonts and changed them for Garamond fonts with PRS-Customizer. But this is not an option for the 300, and with the encrypted firmware and the lack of SD card slot, it will probably stay that way.

I guess it would be possible, but the encrypted firmware seem the main difficulty.

Nobody complaining about the 300 default fonts? Are they more readable than the original fonts of the 505?

If you use Epub, you can use custom fonts by pasting some CSS code in Calibre for the PRS-300:

I'm liking it so far. I've replaced the default fonts with something a bit bolder/thicker, so it doesn't look like it's half-erased in sunlight and is easily readable while in a moving vehicle.

yes, but it's still impossible to have a justified Epub on the 300 I believe?

I like the back-to-basic approach of the 300, I don't need memory card slot or a MP3 player on a small reader, but I want it to to works correctly as a reader.

My epubs are left justified only, doesn't bother me though.

EDIT:

Come to think about it, no justification makes me feel like it's a HUGE step backwards, now that I've seen a LRF file.
