Sony PRS-T3

 

Sony's latest Kindle rival lacks one bright idea

Light ; Easy-to-use hardware ; Easy-to-use interface

No integrated light ; A little expensive given features

The Sony PRS-T3 is a good-looking, small and light ebook reader. However, it doesn’t have a front light like most of its rivals at the price and we find the Kindle Store easier to use than Sony’s Reader store.

Sony Reader (PRS-T3)

 

In and of itself, the Sony PRS-T3 is a perfectly serviceable e-reader, but the reading experience doesn't stack up against the competition.

Compact ; Excellent screen contrast ; Case snaps neatly on ; Overdrive (library) integration ; PDF reflow ; Page-flipping bug fixed

Case-light not as good as back-light ; Pricy once light case is factored in ; Page-turning gestures clunky

There's a lot to like about the Sony PRS-T3. Its compact size and integrated cover feel comfortable in the hand, and its library support is useful. Overall, however, we found the user experience not quite up to the standard set by Amazon and Kobo. If...

Sony Reader PRS-T3

 

Sony has been in the ebook reader market at least as long as Amazon has in the UK, but its products have never been as popular as its big rival's. The latest Sony PRS-T3 seems unlikely to change that, but it's certainly an attractive device.

A good-looking ebook reader, with attractive features, but it fails to back up its steep price
