Cons: After three months, I have not found one. This is after comparing it other readers.
Compared to others on the block (as of Dec 2009) I have not found anything that beats it for the money. Read More at Epinions.com

The Sony PRS-600 works well for my needs
Pros: Format friendly, expandable memory, and good size and weight
Cons: Many complain of the glare and recommend trading up to the 650
If you find one cheap/free, they work great. Otherwise, consider buying up to the 650 which fixed the glare issue. Read More at Epinions.com

Stylish eBook Reader, but Touch screen is a compromise
Pros: Screen refresh rate, broad support of book formats, size, touch interface, collections, external memory expansion
Cons: Display contrast, input lag, no wireless (coming with the PRS-900 "Daily Edition" model)
Bottom Line: MAYBE
Not recommended if you put a premium on display quality. OK if you want format flexibility, prefer touch interfaces, and need to annotate

Great idea with myriad issues.
Pros: Multiple formats, text sizing, good size, $199 and sinking, decent screen.
Cons: Charging issues, awkward interfaces, insufficient documentation, sluggish.
Saves carry on space and book money in long run, but not without a myriad of flaws. Get it now and use it until better products have dropped in price. Read More at Epinions.com

Made reading books a pain in the neck
Pros: Good flexibility in ebook formats, including ones from libraries.
Cons: Heavy, blurry text, and way too expensive.
There are other readers out there with a better screen quality than the Sony PRS-600, and the touch screen isn't anything overly special to make the price worth it. Read More at Epinions.com
