Just picked up my e-book reader from Primus yesterday. After much thought, I finally went for the Sony Reader Pocket Edition (PRS-300) over the Astak EzReader PocketPro, mainly because the PocketPro wasn’t widely available. The entire package, Sony Reader and charger (yes the device does not ship with a charger, default option is USB charging), cost me about Rs. 12000 (inclusive of taxes).

So far haven’t played around with it much, but will start soon. My first impressions:

  • The 5″ screen is actually larger than I expected it to be. Though, 6″ would have been ideal, but Sony stopped making a non-touch 6″ model and discontinued ones were a bit difficult to find.
  • The build quality is fabulous. The reader actually feels very solid and is fairly light.
  • The page “turns”, that 1 second back-flash when turning pages, isn’t as irritating as I thought it would be. In fact, it’s barely noticeable.
  • Lastly, the e-ink screen is excellent. It’s everything that I expected to be. The standard font though isn’t all that great, but I guess I can live with it.

I will post a detailed review a couple of days later, as well as post pictures of it. So keep watching this blog.

PS: Primus, thanks a lot for this buddy !! :)
