As my nickname implies, I am a 74 year old man. This is the very first reader I've ever owned and I am reading almost on a constant daily basis. After looking at all the other brands, decided on this Sony. Am I glad I did! Haven't had ANY of the problems that other posters have mentioned here on this product. Touch screen is very fast, either by finger, stylus, or controls on bottom. Love the feature that it remembers your place, even if you wait a day, read another book on the reader, then return to the original, it brings up the very page where you left off. Thin style, page numbered at the bottom of every page, ie, 208 of 452. Been using 2 weeks and battery is still showing a full charge. Able to connect w/any public library where you have a card, check out books @ no charge. That's an economical benefit to actually having to buy a book. It comes in 3 different colors, black, purple, or pink. I ordered the black one and it was delivered to my door in 2 days. What else can I say? Oh yes, no longer have to burn gas going back and forth to the local library any more! This thing will pay for itself in no time. Can you tell I like this product? :-)

Excellent Ebook Reader

Working in Walmart's Electronics Department, I get to play with the different brands of E-Readers and tablets quite a bit. This is probably the best 4th gen ebook reader, excluding the Ipad and Kindle Fire which are more expensive and don't have the e-paper display. I chose the PRS-T1 over the Kindle, Kindle touch and the Nook touch for it's expanded list of supported formats and lack of advertisements while I read; as well as the light weight and open-source book support for library rentals. It has a great touch screen, supports mobi, azw, JPEG (in black and white), and PDF, and allows you to surf the internet (via wifi) or listen to Mp3 music while you read. The battery life is superb, on first charge it allowed me to read more than 16 books and is still at 50%. You can charge it via the included USB cable via your PC, or (as I found out) any 5volt microUSB phone charger between the 1000-2000mah range will also charge it with no problem. This means almost any phone charger for cell phones or bluetooth headsets made since 2009 can be used to charge the PRS-T1 reader. My only complaint is that it feels rather fragile with the extremely light weight and large glass screen, and I hesitate to take it traveling with me. I am waiting to get a decent cover or carrying case (which are expensive), and I imagine that will fix the problem.

Terrific item to have if you are a reader. And the website where you get books is also good. Sony can do no wrong.

I love this reader. It is very easy to use right out of the box. I like downloading my public library books from the reader . The wifi is very useful. I wish you have a bundle deal with this product. I had to go to amazon to purchase the cover with the light. I would have liked to have bought all of the accessories from Walmart. However I still love your company's selections and customer service. This the 2nd Sony Reader I have purchased from Walmart. I have the pocket version and it is working great. I use both. The pocket version I bought as a bundle.
