Best 5" for reading borrowed epub's?

I am searching for the perfect 5" eink reader for reading borrowed epub's

I have had a Sony prs-505 that I have given away to my wife after buying a PocketBook 360.

The PB360 is really good with allot of formats and many many features.
But these all features comes at a price: the basic ones for reading borrowed epub's is not working so well in the current version of the firmware, and I don't have so big hope for improvements especially regarding that the main format for the Ukrainian software is there own FB2 format.

Then I hoped for the Opus from Bookeen, but from the answers I have got so far in the Bookeen forum it doesn't seem to work so well either.

I gave my sister a PRS-300 so I tested it a bit before, the software is quite good but I prefer the buttons on the sides (both or on one side + the possibility to rotate) so it is possible to read with either left or right hand.

Do anyone have another device to suggest?
