      I purchased a prs300 for my wife a year ago because she gets headaches when she reads. She increases the font size so she doesn't get headaches anymore. I researched the Sony brand readers because I do A LOT of reading and 75% of it is bible study. All my hard copy bibles have highlights and notes in them. I researched the Nook and Kindle and wasn't totally happy with either, then I discovered the new Readers from Sony had a touch screen! I compared back and forth a couple months until I decided the Reader prs-650 was for me. I went to Borders to get my hands on one. When i tried out the prs-350 however I loved it. I decided I didn't need expansion or mp3 since my phone does that very well. So I purchased the prs-350sc. I love the e-ink pearl display, and how easy it is to highlight bible verses, underline or circle words, write little notes and bookmark the page and write notes with the on-screen keyboard for that page. Other small things it does that advertising doesn't really tell you about... you can type in text notes, like i put in shopping lists. It has a doodle pad, I have fun killing time doodling with it once in awhile. You can load your own pics and use them as a "screensaver." The prs-350 fits right in my shirt pocket, anything bigger would not fit. If you are thinking about using any reader for bible study, I suggest the Max Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. Most other bible have book and chapter navigation (some only have book navigation). The Max Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible has book, chapter and VERSE navigation. So when you go to church armed with your Sony Reader and the pastor tells you to go to John 3:16, you hit the Table of Contents, hit New Testament, hit John, hit chapter 3.... the you hit verse 16 and wala! Now you are free to highlight key passages, add a bookmark, type in notes and circle words to your hearts desire!! I hope you have found this review helpful as I seen no reviews on using readers for study. Thank you for reading and God bless you! :)

      The reader itself is wonderful; I love the touch screen, the easy navigation, the stylus, and being able to highlight so easily. Unfortunately, most else about it is terrible. After not even two weeks, the clip on my stylus just snapped off, and replacement styluses don't exist. The cases designed for it are actually to big, and my reader doesn't fit inside of them. It's supposed to support multiple file formats and books from other stores, but if you download anything from, say, Barnes and Noble, there's about a 50% chance that it will say the device is not licensed to view it, a 40% chance it will say "PAGE ERROR," and no more than a 10% chance it actually works, which is terrible, because Sony's eBook store has a smaller selection of books at unnecessarily higher prices. Also, I took it down on vacation with me, and I charged it the first day of my week-long vacation; by the time I got home, the battery was nearly depleted. So overall, if you don't mind faulty accessories and paying too much for too few books, this is a great reader.

            I love my reader!!!! I was able to get some books from the library and that has worked great!!! Finding a cover was difficult because of the size. I wish there were more varieties of covers available. I travel alot, so I would like to be able to access the Ereader bookstore overseas. I was able to in June when I bought the ereader.... I hope that changes in the future.

                  I received my Pocket Edition as a Christmas gift 2009. With the multiple formats, I can purchase ebooks, download books from the library and various other places. Other readers cannot download from the library. I use to go to the library and pickup 5-8 books at a time because I read fast. Now, they're all on one. It fits all of my bags and doesn't weigh it down. It lasts a long time without charging. It's less than $200, can't beat that! Gotta love it!

                    I love my Sony reader. Especially the multiple formats that can be used. Some other readers don't offer the same options. I would buy another for my wife, who keeps taking mine, but I think the prices are a little higher than they should be as compared to similar products from other companies. I hoping to find one on sale at which time I would buy a pink one for my wife.

                        This was the best present I've ever received. I'm an avid reader and this is PERFECT for me. The holding capacity is great and the battery life is WONDERFUL. The two week that they state is no exaggeration. It shuts off by itself if you leave it by itself for too long so that it conserves battery. The only thing I wish it did have is a search tool but it does come with a categorization feature that is very helpful. I love this product. I am buying one for my best friend for her birthday and would recommend this to anyone who LOVES to read.

                          I did a lot of research before I decided on the Sony PRS-350 Reader Pocket Edition. I absolutely love it! At first I was worried about the lack of Wi-Fi. But, it has not been a problem at all. The only thing I would add to this awesome reader would be back lighting. I recommend the Sony Pocket Reader PRS-350 to everyone.

                          I have tried the different eReaders and I am so glad that I chose this over all the kindles and the rest of the sony readers. The small design actually is very convenient. I thought at first that it might be too small, and considered the 650 or the 950, but really, if you are just a serious reader this is ultimately all you need, anything else might either distract you and you wont end up finishing anything. I spent days in Borders columbus circle, NY while on a trip, just trying out the different Sony readers and I have to say, the web browsing and the instant gratification of getting a new book through wifi/internet is NOT worth it. You navigate much faster with your computer, download, sync it up, and you're done. A MUCH better experience. Plus the fact that you just enjoy your book with this device, and not hate it after having a lousy experience navigating through the store or web with it. It's an e-Reader, so use it for its best purpose. The touch screen is very responsive to light touch and the stylus very convenient. It stays in place and fits just right in its holder so theres no reason to worry about it faling out. I love the fact that I can swipe my finger on the screen, closer to a real book. If you dont feel like youre the type to want touch screen you can still opt to use the navigation buttons, which are really discreet and do not take up a lot of space in the hardware. The pink color is just adorable, not to baby pinkish but more of a dark rosey pink. the lining on the side is a lighter shade of pink. Sony did a wonderful job with this one. Honestly, after having the iPhone, iPad, iTouch,Droid X, even the ebooks on my computer, this is the first time I have truly enjoyed a book in a loooooooooong time (used to read about 3 books a day), my eyes dont hurt and no migraines anymore. I get to concentrate on the content instead of enduring the screen just to finish a book like how I do with my other devices. I actually thought there was something wrong with me. Apparently its just the glaring screen, doesnt matter how low in brightness I go. I cannot wait what the next technology of e-ink would be! I am definitely going to buy another one when the latest tech is out. Go e-ink in color! wooooooo! I am so happy with my e-reader, thanks be to God!
