Sony eReader

April 27, 2009

I was recently given one of these and, after almost six months of use, my comments and thoughts are as follows:

  1. It is an utterly cool piece of kit. It still gives me pleasure when I use it. Tactile, pleasing to the eye, clean and easy to read.
  2. You can easily read it regardless of the angle. Lying in bed or sitting in the sun it is still clear to use and, if you wear glasses, you can take them off and just up the font size.

How would I improve it?

  1. I’d add a dictionary function. I use the e-Reader when we go on holidays and the kids could use a dictionary
  2. I’d also add a highlighting function rather than just the bookmarking function which it currently has.
  3. I’d make the way the pages turn  slightly easier. If you read a lot it gets a bit irritating after you have turned your hundredth page.

How do I use it? Mostly for pdfs and downloaded books. I have a lot of work texts on it and it is easy to throw in a handbag or drawer.

Would I buy it again? Yep.

    Hi,

    I work for a London based qualitative and quantitative research agency called 2CV who specialises in conducting research into media, technology, digital content and the changing communications and consumption habits of consumers in the UK and across the world.

    We are looking to conduct some interviews with owners and users of Sony eReaders in the UK.

    If you would be willing to take part in a one hour interview we would love to hear from you or anyone you know who owns or uses one.

    We will pay £50 for an hour of your time.
