Editors Didn't Like

  • At $129, the PRS-T2 costs $10 more than competing models that have an integrated light. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon's or B&N's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad
  • No lightup screen, Higher price than competitors, Touch interface not as userfriendly as competitors, Screen refreshes can leave behind dirty screen, Must tether to PC to get updates, DRM book selection
  • Expensive compared with the competition. No backlight or edge lighting. Sony Reader Store still needs work. Nowhere to store stylus
  • Eink artifacts are ugly and persistent. No lighting options, so you’ll need a case or clipon accessory. Suffers from ecosystem envy. WiFi only. Evernote integration is confusing for newbie notetakers
  • Expensive; Slow performance; No Twitter support; No audio support; Can't share books with other Sony Reader users
  • Evernote integration is really clunky, Display already feels outdated, Bottomlocated power button
  • Some awkward design elements, Image ghosting, No more audio playback, Google Book access
