Advantages: Easy to read, doesn't hurt the eyes
Disadvantages: Touch screen is quite laggy
Like many people I flat out refused to get an E-Reader when they first came out. I branded kindles as pure evil and holed up with my stack of paperbacks, judging anyone who dared come near me with that damned electronic ink.
My mind was soon changed when I received one of these E-Readers as a gift from my grandparents. I'm ashamed to say I was initially ungrateful and didn't even turn it on for a good day or so when I downloaded one of the free e-books I got with the device. I was immediately hooked.
Granted, compared to some of the other brands of E-Reader the Sony is quite laggy but for what it's used for I genuinely don't think all of the gimmicks such as the ability to play video are necessary. It's incredibly simple to use and what I liked the best of all when compared
To an Amazon Kindle was when its plugged into a computer there is software that you can use to sort out your e-book library. I found this extremely useful especially as when I was trying to sort my mums kindle books out I got so frustrated at the system I had to walk away from it.
I have the red version of this and it's shallow to say but I love how pretty it is.
If any one is looking for an easy to use e-book with very paperback looking pages I would definitely recommend this.
Summary: A good alternative to a proper book
