Sony Reader Pocket Edition (PRS-350SC) review

 

There's no question about it: Sony had its work cut out when it came time to improve the next generation of its e-readers. Amazon's Kindle isn't only the

Really compact, lightweight design ; Very responsive touchscreen with included stylus ; Speedy page turns

No wireless for downloading books OTA ; Library of books not as vast as Amazon's ; More expensive than competition

Review: Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350SC

 

For a small-screen e-reader, the new Pocket Edition is one of the best models you can buy--but you'll pay extra for Sony's unique touchscreen design.

In use, I found the touch navigation terrific and natural in feel. You simply touch to turn pages, and touch to get one of the 12 pop-up dictionaries, including conversion dictionaries for French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch, plus American and...

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350SC

 

No matter how slick an e-reader's physical design, it's hard to resist the urge to touch the screen, as you would on an iPad. But you can easily use the screen to navigate with the Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350SC.

Lightweight design; sharp, responsive touchscreen display

No Wi-Fi; no 3G

Among the small, 5in-screen e-reader set, Sony has leaped to the head of the pack. If you want your e-reader in a paperback size, the Sony Reader Pocket Edition is the best model you can get.

Very Impressed

 

PDFs are designed to be displayed and printed on the page size the particular document was designed for - in many cases Letter (8.5x11), Legal or A4. A 5 inch screen is a lot smaller than a piece of letter paper ~25% of the size, because of this...

E-Ink Pearl screen - it is very clear, like reading out of a printed book except it weighs 6 oz and can hold 1.49GB worth of books ; 800x600 resolution in 5" - that's an impressive 200 pixel/inch which definitely makes really small fonts still legible...

Can have ghosting of text - the Kindle 3 seems better at this ; The Kindle also has wifi and (optionally) free 3G service, but since I use this just to read - USB file transfers aren't a big deal - I spend most of my time using the content on the...

Single purpose ebook reader that does what it should

 

If you're fairly knowledgeable about the different formats, DRM and already have a program like Calibre to organize your books, it should work without a problem for you. You won't have a simple web browser or an mp3 player but a device that simply does...

EPUB and PDF support. Supports DRM'd books by Adobe and also books from public libraries too. You aren't locked into just Sony's store or software (I haven't installed it). If you have DRM free books you can just drag them onto the drive the reader...

No font selection (that I could find) ; It could use another font size between XS and S ; Hard to read in the dark, although regular books also have that problem ; Screen is a bit small for PDFs of textbooks and other things that require precise...
