Sony's new WiFi reader offers a lot of extras that don't come with the latest Kindle -- but the bells and whistles come at a bit of a premium.

... its new pricing puts it right in line with its e-reader competition, and as a result it's an attractive choice, especially for people who prize light weight, navigation flexibility, and easy access to reading text PDFs.

[The Sony Reader PRS-T1] shrugs off the occasionally utilitarian look of ebook readers too, with a glossy black design. However, this can be distracting and there a few serious problems to iron out. The Sony Reader store isn't yet live in the UK, ... and the lack of legacy support is disappointing.

... if you venture away from basic reading, the Amazon Kindle is a better choice - it is just as light, cheaper, and offers a wider selection of books. Also, the Kindle offers more storage space for books - about 2GB compared to the Reader's 1.3GB.

Half-hearted product, over priced. ePub DRM a major headache. The publishers have handed the eBook market to Amazon on a platter.

As a reader the Sony PRS-T1 is a good competitor to any of the others. As a music player it's better than most cheaper and equal to most high-end dedicated players.

I had one of each generation of the e-reader of Sony since the prs-500. True to form, Sony got the mix of features right, in this iteration, after several years' experience of producing of e-ink products.

Recently I broke my love of my life a PRS-650 by dropping a water bottle on it (leather case on). Sony doesn't repair the screens and so I have had to buy a T1. I nearly perfect... PRO'S 1. WIFI (makes this even better for travelling!) 2. Lighter 3. Easier screen to read than previous...
