ViewSonic VEB612

The ViewSonic VEB612 is small and light, and its design is quite attractive, but the software is far too buggy for us to recommend this device at the moment, especially given its high price tag. We'd advise those looking for a similar-sized ebook reader to check out one of Sony's models instead

Iriver Story eBook

Ever wanted a device that can let you read books, listen to music and record voice memos? Chances are you probably haven't. But, if you have, then the iriver Story may be the gadget for you. And, as it happens, it's actually a pretty good ebook reader into the bargain

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300

The Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 is our favourite ebook reader among those currently on the UK market. It lacks advanced functionality, but it delivers an affordable and highly satisfying digital reading experience

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600

In many ways, we prefer the Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 to Amazon's Kindle. But it's a more expensive product and its glossy screen detracts too much from the reading experience. It's a capable device, and a good choice for students, but we prefer most competing ebook readers overall

Amazon Kindle international version

The Kindle itself is a smashing piece of kit, but Amazon's digital bookstore just isn't ready for us to invest in. Using competing bookstores with the Kindle isn't possible and we couldn't find a single one of the 15 books we searched for. Grudgingly, we have to recommend more flexible ebook readers, despite the Kindle's impressive capabilities

Elonex eBook

The Elonex eBook has a lovely screen and lightweight chassis, but it's let down by fiddly controls, slow, buggy software and an anorexic features list. It's no match for Sony's venerable, metal-clad Reader PRS-505, let alone the Kindle, which is expected to arrive in the UK soon

Interead Cool-er

The Interead Cool-er has decent format support and a good screen, but it's outclassed in nearly every department by the Sony Reader PRS-505. As they cost roughly the same, it's hard to see why anyone would choose the Cool-er

Endless Ideas BeBook

Relatively small and compact, Endless Ideas' BeBook has an impressive screen, good file-format support and exceptional battery life. Due to an unappealing appearance and sluggish, illogical menu system, however, it can't really compete with the Sony Reader PRS-505, even though the BeBook costs more

Sony Reader PRS-505

The PRS-505 looks wonderful and is relatively easy to use. While some features, such as the PDF support, still need to be improved, at £200 the Reader represents good value for money compared to its rivals

Bookeen Cybook Gen3

The Cybook impresses with its relatively low price and great quality screen. There's room for improvement, however, as the eBook navigation and library functionality are not as good as those of its rivals

iRex iLiad

The iLiad has the best screen we've ever seen for text and impressively long battery life. The asking price, however, will be too high for most, and the device's software needs to be improved before we could truly recommend it. At present it's good, but not quite as good as it should be
