However with time it has been developed to offer consumers a great choice of mattress for a good nights sleep.

It is important that you have the right thickness for your weight and are best with a thicker mattress than a thinner one if you weight quite a lot as the memory foam will not support you properly.

Skytex Primer Review

Overview 

The Primer is the purest E-Reader we have seen with the exception of the Kindle, and the Skytex Primer includes some things that have not been streamlined in the Kindle. Its display is color, something attractive to many users, in particularly who want full PDF capabilities or who want to view the color pictures from newspapers faithfully.

It also has great text-to-speech technology — although the Kindle has this as well, the quality isn’t as high. This is what the press release from Skytex had to say.

Regarding its hardware, the Skytex Primer 7″ Color eReader and Media Player shares some similarities with the Ematic “710B eReader. These include cheap plastic casing, a numeric keypad located underneath the screen, and two awkwardly located sets of buttons on the right.

The pixel resolution of 800 X 480 gives it an antiquated display feel. In contrast, the resolution on the seven inch Nook Color is 1024 X 768. The Skytex Primer has a processor (ARM9 400MHz), which is older but is OK for downloading speed, as well as general operations.

The unit contains 2GB internal memory, enough to store up to ten thousand books plus thousands of songs. Inserting a 16GB MicroSD card into the expansion slot, allows you to store all the books, music, and video files you want and take them with you wherever you go.

They claim that the battery will last 10 hours, but really you only get 7 hours of reading and 5 hours if you play music as you read. Power will be depleted more quickly if you browse the Internet or watch videos.

EPUB, HTML, PDF, PRC and TXT format files are all supported by the Skytex Primer Color Reader and Media Player. It has 18 different languages available for display.

Positives 
The Skytex Primer 7″ Color Reader and Media Player is priced very inexpensively. Significant features are offered by this product, considering its price of $99. You can get books from any eBookstore with open format devices like the Skytex Primer. Students who wish to tape lecturers will discover a built-in recording software and microphone a bonus.

Negatives
The Skytex Primer is not for those who want a high quality product with a unique design. Skytex’s hardware appears to come from China, just like the Ematic eReader as well as many other brands of less expensivecolor eReaders.

If you compare these two devices, you will notice that the specs and features are nearly identical. The Skytex Primer battery is the cause of the biggest issue with the unit. It seems like it is never totally charged, even if it is left charging for hours. In addition, the batter life is horrible – it only provides approximately seven hours of reading per a time.

Using folders or directories may prove to be a challenge. For example, the gadget lists the music in the ebook folder, also. Improvements are urgently needed for the zooming feature. While it allows you to zoom in on a page, you must go back to the default page view if you want to turn the page.

Bottom Line
I really enjoyed this device as a $99 e-reader, and it does provide a pleasant reading experience. However, the retail price is now around $129, which is too expensive in my opinion. There was a lot of competition for TBH even when it was available at its original price.

At Meritline.com, the Primer is currently available for $119. This hardware has already been seen on the Australian market as the Big W MiGear.

Hardware and Specs 
The Skytex Primer centered on a 7” LCD screen (800×480), 400 MHz Rockchip CPU, 2GB Flash, as well as a micro SDHC card slot (which supports as much as 16GB). The Primer also has an FM Radio, microphone and a speaker too.

Two sets of page turn buttons are situated on the right side of the screen and a d-pad, number keys, as well as buttons for rotate, back, font size, and play/pause are located below the screen.

Epub, html, FB2, PDF, Mobi, and txt for ebook formats are supported by the Primer, and the specs page claims that it can also play DAT, MP3, FLV, WMA, AAC, APE, VOB, FLAC, RMVB, MP4, and 3GP. I am unable to test it, since I don’t have the majority of those formats. The Primer has about 10 hours of battery life before it needs to be recharged. For an eReader with LCD technology, this is good.

Reading Experience 
Overall, the Skytex Primer has a nice feel. I kept putting the Literati aside so I could read on the Primer instead. Even though there are prettier eReaders available, using this one was enjoyable. It lacks capabilities besides basic bookmarks and page jump, but that is not a big deal.

I discovered one unusual feature. The CPU maker (they created the firmware) stated that they Primer does not work with DRM. This feature is something they were sure they did not add. However, there is an issue with that. Adobe DE didn’t cause any issues when running on my review device. I permitted the Primer and successfully moved many DRMed ebooks onto it.

I’m pretty positive that it doesn’t utilize Adobe Reader Mobile (the reading app on Sony, Nook, etc.) though. Ebooks seem to all look similar whether they are from NookStudy, Sony EReader Library, or Nook4PC.

There are major differences, though, in how the Primer displays ebooks. Combine that with the fact that I have screwed around with my notebook PC so much (my Adobe DE install is probably ruined) and the fact that Skytex does not recognize this feature. Don’t depend on this feature, as I don’t know if yours will come with it.

Sony PRS 950 Review

Overview 

Although the Sony 950 Daily Edition Reader won’t come out until November, Sony has provided the FCC website, via MobileRead, with a few tidbits of information. This device essentially carries forward a lot of features found on the Sony PRS 900. This includes the 7″ screen, 2GB storage and support for either landscape or portrait orientation.

Additionally, you will find the familiar aluminum enclosure and memory stick expansion slots. You still have the ability to borrow books from the library, download books from many different stores, or websites, and have access to literally millions of books from Google.

However, the Sony PRS 950 is aimed at improving readability. It’s fitted with an eInk Pearl screen, and the touch layer from the PRS 300 will be replaced with one that incorporates optical sensing. This optical screen allows for more response in the interface with none of the worsened contrast that previous models exhibited. Both finger and stylus inputs are supported by the unit. In addition, a virtual keyboard supports text input.

In the same way as the Nook, the unit supports internet surfing through WiFi connection only. To get to the Sony Reader Store and download books and periodicals, 3G is used. Upon the wireless radio being turned on, the unit will look for WiFi network first. If unable to locate, the unit will link to the AT&T 3G network, automatically. If you’re trading up from an older Sony device to this device, your Sony Store purchases automatically transfer to your PRS 950.

Positives

Responsive touch screen without glare or bad contrast; 7-inch eInk Pearl display with high-contrast; 3G and Wi-Fi; faster than the device preceding it; works with Sony’s e-book store; long battery life (22 days maximum); support for EPUB standard, meaning users can download e-books from libraries and elsewhere; audio support; SD and Micro-USB charging.

Positives

Costs more than competitors; Sony’s online store pales in comparison to Amazon’s; many platforms don’t support the Sony Reader app; lack of protective cover.

Bottom Line

Of all the eInk eBook readers, the one I like the most is the Sony PRS 950. It’s light and easy to carry, but the display is larger and will show more words per page. This is great for quick readers. The device also handles PDF files better.

The display of the eInk Pearl is a lot better than the former Vizplex eInk. The contrast is higher and doesn’t need as much ambient lighting, so you don’t have to turn on a lot of lights in a room just to see it. Its touch interface feels a good deal more intuitive than that of the eInk devices from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Once you’ve tried the Sony Reader, you won’t want to use the others again.

Design

The little size of the eBook reader was one of its exceptional features. Under half-an-inch thick, it weighs under 10 ounces. It’s small size makes it very portable, so it can be carried in your bag, backpack, or packed in your suitcase when traveling.

The eInk technology incorporated in the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC makes the reading experience much like that of print books. The touch-screen functionality of the 7-inch display screen boasts anti-glare technology. While we still had a bit of trouble with glare in direct sunlight, generally we were quite satisfied with the display screen.

You can choose from 6 font sizes on the Daily Edition PRS-950, so it seems a lot more like reading a real book. You can also customize your reading with up to 16 levels of gray scale. Choose whichever one feels most comfortable.

Content

A great deal of content can be accessed from the PRS-950SC. The eBook reader lets you get into the online Reader Store. There is a wide selection available in the online store; however, it’s not as big as the competitor’s stores. Nevertheless, the store can be accessed for free and it lets you download magazines, newspapers as well as books.

Additionally, since the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC is able to support more than one format, it can access PDFs and ePub online. Because of this, you can access more online bookstores. You can also download PDF and ePub documents from their sites. We really enjoyed this feature and felt that it gave us a lot more options in reading matter.

Memory/Battery Life 

With the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC, you should have a 10-day charge with wireless enabled. Sony asserts the eReader will operate for 22 days with the wireless turned off, but actual battery life varies according to wireless usage.

With 2GB of internal memory, the eReader is okay but could use a bit more. Nonetheless, we were happy the unit provides media expansion slots. The Sony PRS 950 can store up to 50,000 books if memory cards are used.

Added Features 

The Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC lets you take notes and highlight the text, a feature many appreciate. The capacity for taking notes and highlight was easy, clear and handy.

In addition, this eBook reading device has Wi-Fi and free 3G wireless access. You can download books from the online Reader Store free of charge using the 3G mobile broadband. It also allows you to download documents very easily. We accessed the book and information we desired very quickly and easily. Easy to use, the eBook reader is particularly nice for all of its advanced features.

Sony PRS-900 Review

Sony PRS-900 – It made a lot of sense when the next step in the development of the e-Reader brought the new Sony Daily Edition.

The size of the Reader makes it suitable for reading whole newspapers without losing out too much from the real experience which could impact the portability. Sony is following in the tracks of Amazon when it intensified its competitive edge in order to dominate the fast growing e-book market.

Sony introduced the PRS900 Reader Daily Edition; its first portable reader using AT&T’s 3G network to enable wireless downloads of books, newspaper, magazines and other text files. This is similar to the Amazon’s Kindle connection to the Sprint network.

Unlike the Kindle, Sony’s device will cost $400 when it becomes available in the stores before Christmas. It has a 7 inch touch screen and will store several eBook formats including ePub which has many available libraries that lend out electronic editions.

Positives
The size of the Sony PRS-900 is adaptable for reading and it is very portable. It supports ePUB, PDF and Adobe DRM accessing among others, public libraries and Google free books. All items including those separately packed like the zipper case, are safely tucked away in the box. Online bookstore experiences are excellent and you can download an item very quickly. During our tests, daily periodicals are delivered in a reliable fashion. The device has a strong wireless radio and manages power well.

Negatives
Sony PRS-900 is more expensive than competing brands. The books on Sony sometimes cost more than those in Amazon.

Bottom Line:
The Sony PRS-900 is highly priced at $399. If you take into the account all that comes with the device, then you can find value for each dollar. These items include an AC adaptor, leather cover, travel care, USB cable, pre-installed card, stylus, a battery pack and free wireless service.

E-Reader Qualities
In comparison with the Sony PRS-600, the Sony PRS-900 is 1.2 inches longer and slightly wider and thicker. The amount of text displayed is attributed to the ability of the PRS-900 to variably change the font sizes and give a better landscape functionality than of the earlier models. Letters and icons appear lighter with a darker background than that of a Nook. The screen reflects light and is almost impossible to use at certain angles.

Though you can adjust the font size, there is no way to change the contract or font styles. There are six typeface font sizes available to choose from. There is a dedicated button titled “Size” that allows the user to choose from extra-small, small, medium, large, extra-large and extra-extra large.

Of these font sizes, the medium and large are perfect for anyone with normal vision. Sadly, the device is missing a built in accelerometer which means the user must manually set the display mode from vertical to horizontal.

The device’s ability to improve on text quality and the large screen are perfect for reading. Medium and large sized fonts are legible even in lowly lit conditions. The Sony PRS-900 works best under a reading lamp or in bright lit conditions as the EInk gives extreme clarity against the background with no reflections.

Available Contents
The Sony Reader store is not as complete as the Amazon store but it does have a good selection on various categories and genres. Also available at a monthly subscription are online versions of some newspapers and periodicals, like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and the Financial Times. Other exclusive content can be automatically delivered into the device using wireless access. The Reader however still lags behind what is available from Amazon or Barnes and Nobles stores.

The PRS-900 supports the following file formats: ePub, PDF, .TXT, .RTF, .DOC and can display images in JPEG, PNG, GIF and BMP.

Performance
The Sony PRS-900 is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP and Mac OS X. The device is equipped with an 800MHz Celeron class processor for Windows and an Intel, Power PC G3, G4, or G5 processor for Mac. Requirements for RAM are 128MB but 512MB for Windows Vista.

The internal memory of the Reader is 2GB, with 1.6GB of it being available to the user. It has a memory stick and SD card slots enabling the user to expand the memory to 32GB, enough for several thousand eBooks and documents.

Battery Life
The packaged Sony Reader comes with a replaceable battery. The AC power adapter allows the user to charge from any computer via the USB cable. The user can take 12,000 page turns before having to recharge, this is the highest number of pages among current e-readers. Other Sony e-readers can handle about 6,800 to 7,500 page turns before recharging.

When the wireless signal is weak, the device’s battery tends to drain faster. This means that the user has to wait for the 3G icon to appear or completely turn off the wireless function in order to conserve the battery.

The best way to use a device with a battery is to use it until the battery is completely drained. When you shut down the Reader and restart, the battery indicates correct charge levels. The device is fully calibrated after a few cycles of full draining and recharging.

Sony PRS-650 Review

Overview 

Summary: The new Sony Touch Edition PRS-650 features a 6-inch glare-free display, a few feature upgrades, as well as a slimmer, lighter design, so Sony’s Touch Edition ebook reader will probably become even more popular.

The Touch Edition is the third try at touchscreen ebook by Sony. The first one was PRS-700. With LED lights embedded on its sides, it was fitted with a touch layer on top the screen, which produced reflection and glare. In 8 months, it was no longer on sale.

The next model to be introduced was the PRS-600. Though lacking any lights, it possessed a reflective touchscreen layer on the E Ink display. Just because of this one detail, several people were turned off of Sony’s touchscreen reading devices.

Fortunately, the PRS-650 has totally resolved this; the touch functionality here is both accurate and much simpler to use than the touch readers that came before it. Additionally, the most advanced better contrast Pearl display screens come with new Sony Readers, giving the text a darker as well as more defined appearance.

Positive
Compact and lightweight e-book reader; touch-screen interface was responsive and there were no issues with glare or contrast; high-contrast E Ink Pearl display; peppier performance than its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; satisfactory battery life (as long as two weeks); has support for EPUB which permits downloads of ebooks from libraries; audio playback; has memory expansion slots through use of SD and Memory Stick Duo .

Negative
No Wi-Fi or 3G wireless so books must be loaded using a USB connection; more costly than E Ink Kindle or Nook models; protective cover is not included.

Bottom Line
The PRS-650 is a nice little e-book reader that features an impressive and simple-to-use touch interface; however, the fact that it does not include wireless connectivity will discourage many potential buyers, particularly with the price tag involved.

The Sony Reader Touch edition PRS-650 is the best ebook reader we have seen this year, providing the premium feel and ease of use that people expect from an ebook reader.

We regarded the Sony Reader as the Hot Product until July of this year. However, Amazon recently launched its Kindle at the low price of £109 — £90 less than Sony’s device — which changes things completely. The perfect reader for us would contain Sony’s hardware driven by Kindle’s content delivery program.

We are comfortable recommending the Sony Reader Touch edition to people who would rather not deal with Amazon and the Kindle, but since Amazon’s prices are so appealing, it will be a challenge not to be attracted to them.

Design
One of our favorite parts of the PRS-650SC is its six-inch touchscreen. A lot of touchscreens do not respond very quickly or they are hard to navigate through, but that was not the case with the PRS-650SC. It worked very well and finding paths to certain menus, searching book titles and utilizing dictionaries was fairly intuitive.

We like the fact that e-ink technology is utilized in the eBook reader, because it gives the reader the impression they are reading a paper book rather than an electronic display screen. E-ink is a great choice for those using eBook readers in direct sun outside as well. Though not too much, the reader does glare in bright lights.

Designed for comfort, the Touch Edition eBook reader can be kept in your hand for prolonged usage. The device weighs just more than 7 ounces — light enough to hold with one hand, and natural for reading.

Content
There’s not as much to choose from with the Sony PRS-650SC eReader, but there’s still a great deal. The online Reader Store is accessed by the Sony eBook reader devices. The online shop provides a collection of best sellers, classics and newspapers for downloading. Though the Reader Store did not have the diversity of titles that other eReader stores provided, it was easy to work with, and still contains a large inventory of reading material to download.

Memory/Battery Life
2GB of internal memory is standard for the Sony PRS-650SC eBook reader made by Sony. Up to 1,200 books at a time can be stored in this size of memory, which is considerable regardless of the fact that many comparable eReaders come with a lot more internal memory. However, this was not too problematic since external memory slots are integrated into the device, allowing extra memory to be added, thus ensuring that you have all the books and media you want at one time.

The Sony eReader allows you to use the unit for two weeks on one battery charge. This lasts just long enough for someone to take their eReader on a long trip, or satisfies people who don’t like to constantly remember to charge their device.

Other Features
One feature that stands out for this e-book reader is connectivity. Through a USB cable, the Sony PRS-650SC provides the capability to transfer books and charge the unit as well. Being compatible for both PC and Mac, this unit won our approval. With both types of computers, you can download books, organize and manage your media collections and transfer titles to your eBook reader or computer.

One of the additional features this device has to offer is a comprehensive dictionary. The unit has a search program, which lets you look up words in English. Ten translation dictionaries are included with the unit as well. Also, the eReader has an MP3 player to let you enjoy your favorite music while you are reading.
