Yeah, that seems to be "Calculators Online". If you don't mind silver, the price on the one I bought seems pretty much unbeatable.
I just ordered one of the new international Kindles - I'd better stop there ... for the time being...

Congratulations! It looks like you have a PRS-505 already, so a 600 probably isn't a vital item to own, no?

I thought about getting one, but somehow it didn't have enough draw. I would still like an ereader with dictionary lookup, and I don't particularly care for a touch screen. I mean it's not a deal breaker, but it could be fun to have Kindle instead of yet another Sony reader And I think the ergonomics will work out well for me, too.

I'm interested in expanding this question a little bit beyond just the Sony readers.

I'm in the UK, so if I do decide to buy a Sony I can get it from a choice of three bricks and mortar stores within 10 miles of my home. That's nice from a warranty point of view -- I could probably take a malfunctioning reader back to the shop and even if not I would be covered by the Sony European warranty so I would have to be saving a lot of money for it to be worthwhile ordering from the States.

But if I am thinking about other readers, it stops being so straightforward. Presumably if I bought from either Bookeen or MyBebook.com I would have to return the reader internationally (to France or the Netherlands respectively) if something went wrong. What is the warranty term on these readers?

Right now it could be cheaper to buy -- for example -- the pocket pro from Astak than the bebook mini. For anyone who has experience of having done it, is returning something to the States so much more inconvenient than returning it to another European country? Would the warranty be any better if I buy it in Europe? (I seem to remember seeing US devices with less than a year warranty in the past.)

And if I bought one of the Hanlin readers from Pixelar, I believe that's technically a UK seller -- do they handle warranty in the UK at all, or what would I have to do if the device broke?

Even with Bookeen this might be an issue -- I'm sure I've seen the Opus reader much cheaper on American websites than in Europe (although once I’d paid shipping it might not be worthwhile.)

Generally I'm the kind of person who prefers to have nice in country support/warranty/ways of resolving anything that goes wrong. However some of the price differentials are pretty large and depending which device I go for there might not be a UK way to buy it anyway.

Storm27: Those are excellent questions. The issues are confusing, and I just decided to avoid them - life is complicated enough as it is. Hopefully someone else can help you, though.

They do it because they sell it from another shop (if you get PRS-300, some of the kits are available for Europe, other ones, no).

One question about Europe warrant for Sony readers. You can only repair here PRS-505, PRS-300 and PRS-600 must be shipped to another country (confirmed by Sony Customer Service).

Oh well, I guess I am going to find out about how the warranty works.

It's a fantastic price, and it's a reduction after not even a couple of months. And with the 505 still around.

Do people buy more 300 or 600?
Far from being representative. But in http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55956 it's way more Sony 600 than 300. And I can understand that. 5" still seems less popular and Cybook Opus is tough competition to Sony 300.
