Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 review

 

Sony's new touchscreen eBook reader is a class act, but is it good enough to knock the new Kindle off its perch?

But aside from these niggles, the PRS-650 is an accomplished eBook reader. Its handling of PDFs in particular, plus the potential to borrow books for free from local libraries, begins to make it (and its smaller sibling, the Pocket Edition PRS-350)...

Sony Reader Daily Edition review

 

Oddly, even though the Daily Edition uses a GSM service, it doesn't currently support international roaming (which is the best reason to go with GSM technology). For now, at least, you can purchase and download content wirelessly only when you're in...

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition (Unlocked)

 

The Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition puts stock Android on one of the most absurdly big, but undeniably beautiful and powerful smartphones around.

Big, beautiful 1080p display. Slim, refined design. Runs stock Android 4.4. Fast Snapdragon 800 processor. Incredible battery life. Waterproof.

Enormous. Average camera. Lacks software to take advantage of screen real estate.

Conclusions The Sony Z Ultra still seems more than a bit ridiculous to me, but I'm not going to knock it for its size here. If you're reading this, you probably don't give a damn about how big it is—in fact, that might be the reason you're considering...

Sony Reader Daily Edition (PRS-900)

 

Integrated 3G radio for wireless book downloads. Classy design. Touch-enabled display. Supports many file formats

High price. Glossy screen coating makes dim display difficult to read. Touch screen requires very firm presses

The Sony Reader Daily Edition offers a slick design with a touch screen and wireless book downloads, but it suffers from a high price and a dim display that defeats the purpose of E-Ink technology.

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 review

 

In 2009, Sony put out the Reader Touch Edition (model PRS-600), an E Ink reader with a 6-inch touch screen that looked sleek but had a few design flaws. For 2010, Sony has delivered an upgraded Reader Touch Edition, the PRS-650. While it looks a lot...

Compact and lightweight e-book reader; responsive touch-screen interface with no glare or contrast issues; high-contrast E Ink Pearl display; zippier performance than its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; good battery life (up to two...

No Wi-Fi or 3G wireless means that books must be loaded via USB connection; more expensive than E Ink Kindle or Nook models; no protective cover included.

The Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 is a slick e-book reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface, but the glaring omission of wireless connectivity will be a deal-killer for many--especially at this price.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 review: Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350

 

In 2009, Sony was one of the few digital reader manufacturers to release a model with a 5-inch screen--an inch smaller than the standard 6-incher found on the Nook and Kindle. Now the same model--the Pocket Edition--is back in a sleeker, more compact...

Very compact and lightweight; responsive touch-screen interface with no glare or contrast issues; high-contrast E Ink Pearl display; zippier performance than that of its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; good battery life (up to two...

No Wi-Fi or 3G wireless means you'll need to drag and drop purchased books from a PC or Mac; more expensive than Wi-Fi versions of Kindle and Nook; no protective cover included; Sony Reader Store isn't quite as extensive as Amazon's or Barnes & Noble's.

If you can overlook the fact that it's missing wireless connectivity, the Sony PRS-350 is a very nice little e-reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface.

Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-600) E-Reader Review

 

Full-featured reader with a good music player ; Excellent, intuitive user interface

A tad heavy and pricey ; Requires a PC to add content

With the addition of ePub support, the Sony Reader Touch Edition shapes up as a formidable competitor to Amazon's Kindles.

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 review

 

When Sony released its touch-screen PRS-700 Reader last year, it had a few noticeable flaws. First, its contrast--or how black the letters appear on the screen--wasn't as good as that of the Amazon Kindle or even Sony's earlier PRS-505 Reader ....

The PRS-600 is sleeker than the Kindle; touch screen is more responsive than last year's Sony Reader; interface offers better ergonomics and is mostly easy to use; with the addition of an optional memory card (SD or Memory Stick Pro), it's capable of...

Screen is still glare-prone; screen contrast (how dark the letters are) isn't as good as what you'll find on competing models; lack of wireless access means all files must be dragged and dropped from a PC; battery is sealed into unit; notation and...

While it's an improvement to the company's previous touch-screen model, Sony's Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is saddled with a screen that's short on contrast and prone to glare--and it lacks the wireless convenience of Amazon's identically priced Kindle.
