Kobo Wireless eReader (WiFi, lilac)
REVIEW

Kobo Wireless eReader ( WiFi, lilac)

Though the Kobo Wireless eReader is a serviceable e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi, it's worth spending the extra money to get the Kindle or the Nook instead.

REVIEW

Barnes & Noble Nook Color

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650PC (red)
REVIEW

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650PC ( red)

The Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 is a slick e-book reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface, but the glaring omission of wireless connectivity will be a deal-killer for many--especially at this price.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350PC (pink)
REVIEW

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350PC ( pink)

If you can overlook the fact that it's missing wireless connectivity, the Sony PRS-350 is a very nice little e-reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface.

REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Keyboard ( Wi-Fi, graphite)

The third-generation Kindle's winning combination of noteworthy upgrades--an improved screen, better battery life, lighter weight, and lower price--vaults it to the top of the e-book reader category.

Pandigital Novel (white)
REVIEW

Pandigital Novel ( white)

The feature set of the affordable Pandigital Novel looks good on paper, but this color e-book reader and multimedia device is hobbled by its extremely slow performance and unresponsive touch screen.

Amazon Kindle DX (white)
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle DX ( white)

Though it has a hard time competing with Apple's iPad in terms of functionality, the less-expensive 2010 Kindle DX will appeal to those looking for a large, dedicated e-reader with an e-ink display.

Kobo eReader
REVIEW

Kobo eReader

The Kobo eReader isn't a bad little basic e-book reader, but it's just not a compelling deal now that the more full-featured Barnes & Noble Nook has matched its low price.

Barnes & Noble Nook (Wi-Fi)
REVIEW

Barnes & Noble Nook ( Wi-Fi)

The Nook Wi-Fi doesn't quite measure up to the Kindle in terms of design and overall performance, but it's a worthy alternative if you're looking for a more open e-reader that supports the EPUB format.

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600RC (red)
REVIEW

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600RC ( red)

While it's an improvement to the company's previous touch-screen model, Sony's Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is saddled with a screen that's short on contrast and prone to glare--and it lacks the wireless convenience of Amazon's identically priced Kindle.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 (rose)
REVIEW

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 ( rose)

While Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 has a basic feature set, its $200 price tag, compact size, and Epub file compatibility make it an appealing e-book reader.

The PRS-700 takes one step forward for Sony digital readers--and a couple leaps back.

Amazon Kindle (first generation)
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle ( first generation)

With its free built-in wireless capabilities and PC-free operation, Amazon's Kindle holds a distinct advantage over Sony's Reader and is a promising evolution of the electronic book--but Amazon needs to bring down the pricing for both the device and the content to attract a wider audience.

Sony PRS-500 Portable Reader System
REVIEW

Sony PRS-500 Portable Reader System

Though the Sony PRS-500 Portable Reader System is an impressive platform for reading e-books and other documents, the price and availability of compatible "books" makes it a tougher sell.
