2 out of 5 stars   Good item, worthless user guide.
By Earthquake (Flushing. NY) March 18, 2012
Review submitted for Sony PRS-T1 6" Digital E-Ink Pearl eReader with Wi-Fi (Black) (SNPRST1BC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact Design
Cons: Terrible user guide
Other Comments: This item comes with maybe two pages of hard copy written instructions, hardly enough for any practical purpose. The rest of the so-called User Guide is available through the Reader itself, but if you don't know how to use the Reader you can't avail yourself of the User Guide. So guess what? This item is useless for anyone who has not previously learned how to use it. It's too bad because the Reader itself is a reasonably good item. But even the best Reader on the planet is worthless if it doesn't come with clear user-friendly documentation. True, the User Guide is also available online but if you want to print out a hard copy of it (160 pages) you will not be able to use the internal links which are essential to the proper use of the Guide. Even in the best case scenario the User Guide is terse, unclear, poorly arranged and organized and contains no index which makes it almost impossible to focus in on what you want to find. In short, good item if you can learn how to use it. You won't if you rely only on what SONY supplies.

5 out of 5 stars   Excellent eReader--Very Pleased
By quiltingmamaw (Stratford, OK) February 15, 2012
Review submitted for Sony PRS-T1 6" Digital E-Ink Pearl eReader with Wi-Fi (Black) (SNPRST1BC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Read, Attractive Design, Long Battery Life, Good Screen Quality
Cons: Poor Software Bundle, Limited Compatibilty
Other Comments: I really enjoy the touch-screen and as an avid reader on any car trip of any duration, have come to enjoy the lightness and portability of my eReaders (I do own more than one). The only two drawbacks that I can see is limited compatibility and the fact that the device came without a cover. The expansion slot, however, is a huge plus in my opinion.

5 out of 5 stars   Sony ebook reader
By triteconfessions (LA, CA) January 26, 2012
Review submitted for Sony PRS-T1 6" Digital E-Ink Pearl eReader with Wi-Fi (Black) (SNPRST1BC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Read, Durable, Good Screen Quality, Long Battery Life, Good Compatibility, Attractive Design, Compact Design
Cons:
Other Comments: I've used the old Sony PRS-505 for a couple of years now. I was getting tired of the refresh rate so I thought it was a good time to upgrade. A lot of sites have rated it highly but the price was a bit higher than products with decent specs. Found it on Buydig.com for less than anyone else. Very worth the price and I enjoy it. If anything, the screens almost too sensitive, but I'm still happy with my ebook reader.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Email capability, Decent price, Easy set up to network, Nice virtual keyboard

Other Comments: The Sony e-reader is very lightweight and easy to hold for long periods. I did a lot of research online before buying this model and knew what to expect, so I am not disappointed.
