Hi from Hampshire, England - waiting for my 505 to arrive
After watching the play.com price bounce up and down over the last couple of months, I've decided to grab a Sony Reader PRS-505 while they have them at £160. Still waiting on delivery as I only placed the order last night.
As there seems to be a wealth of experience about the 505, hardware, converting files for it, modding/hacking it, it seemed sensible that I sign up to the forum fully so I can join in fully.
Plus, the community-uploaded versions of public-domain stuff looks like an excellent way to catch up on a lot of stuff that I "really should have read already". I'm downloading a small heap of those so I'm ready to go as soon as it arrives.

Good to have your company, Buxton. You'll love that wee machine; from all I've seen and read, maybe the best on the market right now (far superior to the new international Kindle for a whole heap of good reasons, I think). A word of advice: persuade someone to get you a posh leather PRS-505 cover for Christmas. Costs around $30. It instantly turns the reader into something that looks, feels and smells like the most beautiful hardback you can dream of. The cover has somehow doubled by reader enjoyment. Cheers. Neil

Hi Buxton and welcome to MobileRead. I've had a 505 since Jan 08 and really like it. Be sure and let us know when yours arrives.
