Never leave home without it!

Comments about Sony PRS-950 Silver Reader Daily Edition Digital Reader:

I received my Sony Daily Edition a year ago for Mother's Day. It is one of the best presents I've ever received. I take it with me every where I go. Just slip it right in my purse. I usually have several options of books or magazines to read. It has a very long battery life if you're not using the wi-fi, that you can turn off when it's not being used. I would highly recommend this e-reader. I purchased a cover that has a reading light and it works great. My husband thinks you can't go wrong with Sony products. My only wish is that it had a color screen.

    Comments about Sony PRS-950 Silver Reader Daily Edition Digital Reader:

    does not have a huge keyboard at the bottom and 1 inch plastic bezel around the screen like other readers. sony reader software barely works: allow 1-2 hours to get something to work. i had to abandon and use Adobe Digital Editions, which recognized this reader. Sony's own software took 2 hours to authorize computer, then authorize sony reader.
