I Really Like The 600

I've been using a PRS-300 for a little while now but after learning of some of the additional features of the 600 I wanted one. I was especially wanting the ability to expand the storage as well as wanting the touchpad features including hand-writing notes.

As I am stranded in a motel due to an engine break-down in my truck I took a cab to a local mall and picked up the 600 at a Best Buy today, along with a light cover for it.

I've spent the day and evening playing around with it and reading it, and I love it. A simple finger swipe across the screen to turn the page is great, and I can really use the hand-written notes function on the job.

I stuck a 4GB card into the device which greatly increases the storage space. For me that's a great thing as the 300 didn't even come close to storing all of the ebooks I have. With the added storage space the 600 stores them all with ample room to spare.

The ability to play music files while I read is a very big plus for me as I often like to listen to classical music while I read, which is something I miss while reading in a truck stop. Trust me, no Bach playing in the truck stop.

All in all, for a single day of testing, the 600 is a huge winner for me.

Oh, and I already have a buyer for my 300.

getting a new $300 toy is certainly one way of turning around a crappy situation!

Great to know that you're enjoying the 600 and were able to make the break from the 300! It does have a great feature set and form factor. I also listen to music on my Reader. Don't forget to try and grab a reading light if you don't already have one.

That's one way to look at it.

Thank you. I bought the light cover with it. It works great. I was reading in the hotel lounge this evening and the flexible light was great. Perfect reading and a lot of people asking "what is that?"

Excellent... !!! Good to hear a positive 600 story, and from someone who moved from the 300. I always see it as we are all different, and so the things that fit us are different. It's not a matter of "best" or "worst" or "better"... it's just a matter of what works for you. I wear 32 waist pants, they are not better or worse than the 38's or 28's.... they are just what fit me....

The 300 fits me, but I am so glad there are choices!

Hey Cole, I like your comparison with pants
Actually, I had a look at a 300 today, and I thought "what a difference the 1" makes".
So as soon as I'm in for a new reader, I'll check out something similar to the 900. Depending on what's on the market by then.

Yeah, I love my prs 600, too. I loaded a bunch of music on an sd card and sometimes listen while I read. Pretty cool.

New toys are so much fun, aren't they? My husband just got me an ipod touch and I've downloaded the stanza app and a couple of free books so far. I'm sure that the 600 will still be my main reader, but the ipod touch sure is fun!!
