Classiest eReader on the market.
Huge improvement over the PRS-500. The build quality is infinitely superior to any other eReader I have seen. When you hold it, you just feel the quality oozing out of it. Most obvious is the inclusion of a hard, leather-like cover to protect it. The layout of the buttons is also the best I have seen. It also supports more formats than any other eReader I have seen. I love everything about this device. The new firmware improves one of the only problems it had (displaying PDFs formatted for A4) by including 'reflow' so that PDF's can be resized better to fit the screen. The Calibre software (formerly called libprs500) is probably better than the sony software if you don't want to use the books from Sony's own store. Calibre is an open source program so it's easy to get hold of and doesn't cost anything. If you're in the market for an eReader, this truly is the best one currently available.
