RP1 - is this wavy screen faulty or the norm?

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 10:58:53 GMT

Hi people, I had a little difference of opinions with a seller concerning the status of screen of my newly acquired RP1 (hacked JP version);) . As neither of us can persuade the other, I had no choice but to turn to our wise forum members for your thoughts. Any input will be much appreciated. :thanks: What happened: 1. I had a US-version RP1 for a while, but parted with it. I ordered a hacked Japanese RP1 online and was appalled to find the surface of screen was clearly uneven both to the eye and to the touch. Much worse than the US-version which I owned and used daily for over a month. I believe the device is faulty, and asked the seller for a return or exchange. 2. The seller said this is usual with flexible screens. This happens to a lot of other RP1s. There is nothing wrong with the unit. 3. I know flexible screens may be uneven. My previous device is so. But I don't think a screen this wavy can be counted as normal. 4. I need to find what is the norm. Please if you own an RP1 could you share if your screen is as wavy or better? I attach a pic of mine for your verdict :blink:

PRS-600 Shopping for a Refurb

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:39:41 GMT

Hello Sony Folk, I'm looking at a refurbished Sony Digital Reader Touch Edition (PRS600RC). Watching video reviews I have not seen this reader have any option for changing the font. The SIZE of the font can be changed, yes, but does the reader provide any option for using a different font? Or will it only display the font in the original file? (I use epubs). Also, if anyone would like to share their impressions of and experience with this reader it would be very welcome. Many thanks!
