I have the PRS-500. I believe that was the first, or one of the first, of the Sony readers. I will say that the Sony's display is better in direct sunlight but I can't get the font changed like I can with the Kindle. The Sony also allows you to use PDF files without converting them.

However the newer Kindle is easier to read in regular light and the page refreshes at a must faster rate.

I also have to qualify that I use these for mostly tech information and not for recreational reading. I actually haven't fired up the Sony in almost a year.

Take care,
