I really think it's worth it.

There are plenty of things I love about the PRS900.

The size really suits me. Still portable, but larger than your typical 6" devices.

3G is nice when travelling - I get my newspapers delivered in the morning. And I have bought books on the fly when bored in a hotel room. Well, ok, that might not be a good thing...

I love the touchscreen for taking notes on my PDFs. That's probably the main reason I bought a PRS900.

It's also very well built. A solid device, feels - and is - sturdy.

I love the access to various formats - I have downloaded a lot of free books, from Google, Project Gutenberg and so forth.

On the other side, it does have its problems. The glare is still there - it doesn't really bother me, but it obviously bothers some people. And it could have better contrast. SONY's software is... well, SONY's software. They are a hardware company, and it shows.

Overall... I think one should try it, and see if the screen contrast and glare are a problem, as that seems to be very subjective. But I think it's well worth its cost.
