I wrote a really long post for this but then my browser crashed so I lost the details. Basically until Monday Waterstone's are offering the newly released and well reviewed Sony PRS-350 for £129.

Waterstone's are also participating in the Sony VAT back campaign. If you go in store then the claim forms are next to the e-book readers. Once the VAT is claimed back it should bring the price down to £106

The price is instore only, the price on the website is £159. I checked the price ticket and confirmed with a member of staff that the lower price is available until monday, so if you want this be quick.

Although the kindle is a great product, it doesn't support epub, which is important for some people. It's better to have a choice at this price point than none.

No wifi!.. pah!

Its easy to change the epub format into .mobi which the amazon will recognize,

all u got to do is download calibre :)

Good price,voted Hot.

Kindle + Calibre = £109.

Better screen on the kindle which is the most important thing.

So post a deal for a kindle then, this is a deal for a Sony PRS-350, not a debate about which is best.

Not a debate but for someone who doesn't know a lot about e-book readers, I would really appreciate peoples comments on alternatives so I don't see what your problem is.

Both get good reviews, they both have latest generation screens which are much better. The Sony natively supports content from more places but the amazon has inbuilt wifi (or 3g if you opt for that model)

Either would be a good choice, it's a matter of preference really.

I've gone with the kindle, Amazon seem to be the only store doing sane pricing. I love it.

I had the prs-300 which was alright but the kindle blew it out of the water and Amazon's prices are actually quite good.

The prs-350 looks the same as the 300 but with touch screen for turning the page.

I also want to add that the 3G version is dearer but easier for reading news on the go, instead of waiting 30 minuts each morning to turn on the pc, boot up Calibre, download and convert my favorite news sites and upload to th reader. Let's not forget you can also ownload books mentioned in the freebie section too, straight to the kindle.

I have the PRS-650 (the bigger one). I travel a lot, it saves so much weight in my bag. I got the Sony for its PDF support. Wouldnt be without it now

went with the sony - liked the kindle, the prices of the books but have an aversion to itunes style business models where the unit is locked to a single supplier.
the sony is a good looking beast - but i wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't for the 129 price + vat back....too pricey, ,but it is beautifully put together.

erm - it isn't - you can read pdf, txt files, etc - plus there are a lot of free books on the Amazon website, and elsewhere

There's a lot of free newspapers drop through my front door - doesn't mean I want to read them! Apple fanboys I kind of understand, but Kindle fanboys...?

Strange comment - my point wasn't to be a fanboy, but to point out that the Kindle isn't locked to a single supplier as @idbroadhurst thought.

The free books are available no matter which eBook you get, so again i'm not sure how that makes me a fanboy - but hey ho ...

As for not wanting to read some of the classics, again that's your choice ...

Incase people are interested - some legit sources of free eBooks:

@Macdory

Thanks for the links - found gutenburg before but the others are a welcome heads up.
As for the rest of the thread, it just proves that choice is a good thing and no device will be perfect for all.

For what I (think I) want/need, the sony ticks my boxes - glad theres a reader that does the same for you :-)
