Sony PRS-505They sleek and style digital eBook Reader carries about 160 eBooks for you and hundreds of more in the external memory cards. Its portability, compactness, light weight of about 9 ounce, slim design and clear display makes it a perfect on-the-go reading experience. Whether you are at salon for a foot massage, or waiting in line to pay bills or even waiting for your car, just open up and start reading.

It has a long lasting battery life of up to 7500 pages continuously on one charge. The audio and picture playback can play MP3 and AAC files. So now, you can read and listen with this device easily and simultaneously. Just plug in your earphones and enjoy your exercise or even when reading.

The impeccable e-ink technology is too good to make it feel as if you are reading an original print of a book. Also, the sharp clear words and ability to zoom makes it easier to enlarge page and read it comfortably.

You can even move files to word. You can check for synonyms and enjoy reading on Microsoft Word.

Plus you don’t have to worry about the formats. EBook Reader reads everything ranging from Adobe PDF10, RTF, TXT, BBeB, BMP, JPEG, GIF, and PNG to Microsoft Word. Most of the devices don’t offer PDF readers, but not this one.

The power and speed of the inbuilt Windows XP Professional and a complete package which includes soft case, USB Cable, Quick Start Guide, CD-ROM and 1 year warranty is the best solution.

Moreover, 192MB internal memory with dual SD card slots which can store up to 2GB of SD Card or 8GB Memory Stick is a complete book case for you. And guess what? You can download new releases and popular top rated books from the exiting Sony’s eBook store.

However, there are still some features missing. HTML support is not there. Although, you can convert HTML file to RTF, but still it could have made life more comfortable and easy. Also, the Refreshing rate is a bit slow, which needs to boost up to make it quicker. There is no backlight which makes it difficult to read at night or in dark rooms.

Also, the collection lacks text or an academic book, which means we, can’t find a reference book on the go. Also, more books needs to be uploaded on the Sony store for download.

Finally, the price of the product is expensive. Although it is a good replacement of small screen PDAs but the price should be reduced.

Thus, the overall experience is outstanding, it makes reading enjoyable and easy with good font and clear screen and a stylish device.
