It looks to me that Sony's quality control was much higher – or that they expected higher quality from their component providers. I'm also impressed with the quality of Sony screens (even the old ones, like the PRS-505 and PRS-300 which, spec-wise, weren't supposed to be all that good). Also the quality of the batteries seem to be much higher quality than their competitors of the same era. (Or maybe they just had better software that preserved the batteries better?) At any rate, the build quality Sony Readers was very good.

The default fonts of all PRS-T models are extremely readable.
No need to recourse to external fonts if one is not forced to (there are differences in the unicode scope across the T series, so if one needs eg Chinese or Arabic or even Latin suppl., one had to use custom fonts).

I think tastes in fonts differ. I like them darker than what the Sony uses, although customizing the screen format helps a lot with the native fonts. I think DejaVu Serif E-Ink makes a great "Sony" font.
