Ok I've read through the whole thread and I'm still unsure. There seems to be plus and negatives to each reader. It seems to be a very individual thing.
So rather than trying to answer the general question of which one would you buy I'm trying to go with which one would be suitable to me.
I am pretty easy going, I am looking simply for an ereader to read my books, I'm not too bothered about RSS feeds and newspapers etc.
Up to now I've been using 'Microsoft Reader' on my laptop but as stated it is an eye killer. This means that almost all my currently stored ebooks are in .LIT format, I also have a few .PDF files that I read in Adobe.
So I'm thinking that I may be better off with the BeBook as this supports .LIT but the Cybook doesn't.
