Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for academics For people who have lots of digital document to read and annotate, this device is excellent. You can spend several hours a day on this screen without feeling any of the inconveniences of the common LCD screens of computers and tablets. Documents on your computer are automatically synced to the anotations you made on the device but what is quite remarkable is that it does not alter the original document: instead, the annotations are saved as comments that you can select, move, and delete easily on Acrobat Reader for example. Perfect for peer-review, reviewing your own writing, or annotating articles and books which are now often available in open PDF format (this cannot read DRM encrypted PDFs). Scanned documents also look quite nice. The interface is uncluttered, but you feel that the designers have thought thoroughly about every feature you might need while reading/taking notes. I have encountered no bugs whatsoever, which is amazing when compared with the other large e-ink devices on the market I have tried. This is not a beta version; all the advertised features just work.I am still expecting the ability to insert sticky notes into documents using the excellent inboard virtual keyboard - it feels like a waste that you cannot do that. (You can read existing sticking notes though.) Another minor annoyance is the menu to change the pen color and thickness: it closes automatically when you change colors, forcing you to open it again if you meant to also change thickness. The search tools are quite advanced, but there is room for improvements: (1) the highlight list is cluttered; it shows the author name and time for each highlight even when similar; it gives only the few first words of your highlight with no way of expanding it without jumping to the page (takes a while on e-ink) and thus closing the annotation menu; if you have several pages of highlights you have to skip page per page to get to one you might be looking for. I would suggest an optional fully fledged annotation menu similar to the side-note mode, with highlights fully featured and enhanced review tools; including the ability to export highlights as a summary in a separate pdf document. (2) The handwriting list unfortunately looks awful, it boldens your handwriting so that it can show on the miniature pages, but that does not help at all to distinguish what you wrote! I would suggest a light, grey circling of strokes, or even the mere rendition of the miniatures with no modification. Finally, I wish I could active/deactivate the bluetooth directly from the home button menu, since it drains so much of the battery when you leave it on.Since I suggest academics will find this device useful, I should mention that you simply cannot use the wifi capabilities of the device on the eduroam network which is standard in US university campuses. If find this to be quite a blunder from Sony since they advertise it partly for academic purposes. They should definitely do something about this; but in the meantime be advised that you will have to use a USB cable to transfer large PDF libraries since the Bluetooth is expectedly very slow and only appropriate for the (quite useful) "Print to Digital Paper" option from your computer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Digital Paper will not connect to computer via USB I bought my Digital paper last week and for taking notes it is great. However the Digital Paper App on the computer will not register the Digital Paper when connected to USB, which means that I cannot connect it to the internet and hence not through the Phone. This highly limits the usefulness of the device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disapointed I bought it to try to avoid paper at work. It doesn´t support any kind of document but PDF (I hopped it works with .doc). You have to be in the same wifi in order to transfer from your desktop to the device... my desktop is wired so I only can transfer using USB cable.. You have to have mDNS in your network to transfer. Not always you can enable it (consider being in an hotel).You realized that your pen is out of battery when it is late, during a meeting. The app is only available on a small region. I was outside the US and I coul not download it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DPT-RP1 has the best hardware, the worst software I wait for the DPT-RP1 for 1 year and I finally buy it.Finally, it may be a wrong decision.For such a gadget with only weight under 350g,Sony had done a good job, but that 's all! I use Windows 7, and I cannot transfer document to Digital Paper, the device only support PDF, that mean I cannot see other document format, even cannot browser the website on the digital paper, all I can read is PDF,PDF,PDF,PDF..... .What's worse, there is no fixed cropping function on DRT-RP1, I have to circle the readable area each page, it makes me crazy for using this stuff. Why don't Sony hire someone good at software or user experience to develop the system??

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant gadget with a lot of room to perfection... Regardless of its imperfections, i am totally enjoying it. I do really hope Sony will listen to its customers and take action asap. This thing takes reading to the next level, and i can't thank Sony enough for making it. But i am sure a lot of people will buy it regardless of it's price, if the navigation functions are made available, which is one of the many reasons, apart from the price, discouraging people to buy it. Previous view, Next view, jumping to a page are all the functions completely missing from this beautiful creation of Sony. And one thing i thought about while reading and working in the split screen is, instead of splitting it only in the landscape mode, which by the way the text becomes so small and you lose the enjoyment of it, portrait would have been great - the text size would be the same as the original- but of course for this to work, we also need to scroll- which is missing right now too. With all the problems i have mentioned above, and its hefty price, i do give it a four star, and i can't wait to give it a five star when all the missing functions are added.Thank you Sony!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paper notepad replacement! I first have to admit i've been working with digital paper since the early versions so i am a fan. I am a avid note taker, i seem to recall more if i write down. i have not been able to use my computer or ipad for this in a way that feels natural. Sony Digital Paper with its legal pad size is perfect and the pen/pencil to paper experience is seamlessly transferred to a digital medium. the advantage for me was a very simular notetaking experience with digital sync to my computer. no more drawers full of paper notepads. While I mostly use for notes, a secondary advantage is 'printing' any paper documents directly to the SDP to eliminate carrying around paper, and having the ability to markup/highlight while reviewing in full page form like a paper print out.
