Hello guys!! My sister is travelling to the USA in a few days and I wanted to ask her for an E-book Viewer. Do you have any experience with it? I have been checking the Kindle, but there are many models... which is the best pdf viewer??

I think Kindle DX is a very good option, it has great battery life and good display.

Hey Gabriel,
how about the sony prs t-1? I got one (luckily as a present tongue.gif) one month ago and it is really a neat device! Had no problems so far,
the display and feel (touch screen) is very nice, and you got full pdf support. Nevertheless converting from pdf (yeah you might find a whole book as pdf and want to read it as nicely as you can with other formas -epub- ) is always a problem for those readers and requires some further insight which I had no time for biggrin.gif but you should find plenty on the internet! Another great tool for converting the different ereader formats (sony goes best with "epub" I think) and managing your book is CALIBRE, it doesn't matter if you get a Kindle or Sony, this tool is a must! Maybe you can check them out in a local bookstore? In the end I think its a matter of taste but also bare in mind that you will have a lot of space if choosing the Sony (most importantly you can expand its memory via micro sd up to 32 gb!).

hope this could help a bit, better check out some reviews! laugh.gif rolleyes.gif

I read novels, and for that I love my kindle.

As for technical texts (.pdf, etc. with lots of graphics), I wouldn't know.
