The display is excellent and the feel when writing is far superior to a tablet. The form factor is also great. It is light and thin yet sturdy. There are, however, some significant deficiencies in usability. The inability to scroll (up/down or left/right) while zoomed in is a major annoyance. Also, the lack of file management capabilities on the device itself such as being able to determine what folder a new set of notes is saved to, or even the ability to move it from the default "notes" folder to another subject specific folder is very limiting. Of course the fact that despite having WiFi builtin, it can't directly sync with any cloud based services (e.g. Dropbox, onedrive) also seems very short sighted and means that you will often have to carry both the dpr-rp1 and a laptop to meetings, conference sessions etc. (anywhere were someone might direct you online PDF content). Hopefully Sony will quickly update the firmware to address some of these issues.

I can now read PDFs without carrying around a crate

I've got thousands of PDF that I cannot read on Kindle because of the small print. I'm excited. But I just got it in the mail.

It's not that it's bad. It just lack of some functions for me

I used it for two days and return it. It's not that it's bad. It just lack of some functions for me. Like I can't find the highlighting functions while taking notes and it does not have sentivity writing experience like remarkable. It also does not support 5 G hz wifi which is a little bit disappointed. Otherwise, it is pretty cool, you can customize your lock screen which is amazingly cool!

One of the most unique aspects about the e-reading experience is split screen view.

One of the most unique aspects about the e-reading experience is split screen view. You can have an EPUB or MOBI open on one side of the screen and the note app on the other. This will allow you to jot down notes on each page and save them

I'd say it's the best that's available for that

I got it for internet browsing and mirroring my computer monitor. I'd say it's the best that's available for that, but the technology still needs to be developed. Hoping they update the system soon because there's compatibility issues with some basic apps and browsers. Excellent as an e-reader.

Big which is nice, Amazon if your listening

Big which is nice, Amazon if your listening... needs to make something similar with perhaps higher quality control, but this is where the romance ends, laggy, slow uneven backlighting and night mode is useless on higher settings, compared to the kindle lineup this thing doesn't get nearly as dark at the lowest or nearly as bright at the highest of settings

A fantastic item, just avoid "Triplenet Pricing INC"

A fantastic item, layout and organization, especially in conjunction with Cailbre is much superior to Kindle. Night-time mode is pretty nice too. The extra size opens up reading to fixed layout items like PDFs that are unpleasant on the Kindle. The CBZ support is pretty neat too.

Just avoid "Triplenet Pricing INC" if you want a new one as they ship used/broken items as new (and make you pay shipping on the return). As things stand now, I'd buy it from Rakuten directly and give Amazon a pass on this one.

So coooool~~~~~ It is very useful for reading

So coooool~~~~~
It is very useful for reading, checking weather, checking photos, looking at times and so many different functions.
Oh, the most important function is reading books. It is an E Lnk eReader after all.
I think it is better for mans. Maybe the producer could add some fresh colours,for example: red, pink, light blue, gold......
At last I want to say the magnetic charging interface looks like very upscale and practical.
Hope to debut new models for iPhone 7+, iphone8.

1 is way too old to be useful - can't sync with any Google APIs

I should have waited for the 10.3 note pro that is coming out next month. The fact that they don't keep up with Android versions (4.1 is way too old to be useful - can't sync with any Google APIs...) makes this not worth the money. It is a good size for pdf reading , and works for that, but with the fact that this is an android capable tablet with an e-ink display, the implementation falls short. What is nice is that it is bluetooth capable - the goal for me was to utilize it as a low power portable writing device that synched with google docs, and one I could read ebooks on to replace my kindle. It would be phenomenal if they updating the software to a more recent version of Android, which would bump it up a star for me.
