The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Along with its shiny new firmware and casing the new Opus also comes gets a very welcome drop in price. In 2009, you were looking at coughing up between £200 and £250 for an one, but now it has a far more reasonable RRP of £169, but don't forget you can find Sony's PRS-300 Pocket Reader for under £150 easily enough, though it lacks a storage expansion facility.

Cybook Opus 2010

A few gripes, but even better value

Verdict

Do the new colours, faster firmware and lower price make the Opus any more recommendable? If you only plan on reading ePub files, don't miss a music player and can live with the lack of bookmarks then yes, but I would like to have seen some of the device's more obvious shortcomings addressed in this update. That said, it's nifty to navigate and has a respectable battery life. ®
