Comments ive found which may influence:
- Many positives mainly suited for the ardent reader, not so much for the casual
- File format must be BBeB which may be tedious for some
- Not a huge collection of books available. Notably some ebooks online cost the same as their hardback counterpart, why? O ye, money.
- Mains charger not included, PSP charger works though :cool:
- Offer is for a free accessory, either a charger worth £15.99 or a cover worth £29.99
- Not so good for low light conditions, again money sponging Sony offer a cover with built in light for £45ish, what!
- Most probably cheapest you'll find
Hoping to use mine for university lecture notes when it arrives, i chose the cover. £200 for this was a bit much so really hoping it pays off. Any users who can share their experiances?
