Digital Versus

Not enough to compete

from Digital Versus
The Sony Reader PRS-T series may be a reference for some, but very little has changed over the past three generations. As for the optional cover with the light, it's just a clip-on reading lamp that doesn't illuminate the screen as uniformly as an actual built-in frontlight system would. The PRS-T3 costs more than its frontlit competitors, but doesn't offer much that Kobo and Amazon's e-readers don't already... Full review

It really maintains the same sort of visual allure as prior models and is easy to hold with one hand

from Good E-Reader

This reader is also perfect who just want to read and don’t need a ton of distractions with games, lights and all the other gobbledegook

from Good E-Reader
The Sony PRS-T3 really feels like the company isn’t even trying anymore. They are using hardware internals that e-Readers in early 2012 were using and haven’t really updated it in any significant way. Considering the new Nook, Paperwhite and Kobo Aura are using cutting edge technology, this feels sluggish in comparison... Full review
