Atomictown, part of tricityherald.com, provides a good summary of CNet's comparison of e-book readers. This includes (with 5-star based ratings) the Cool-er e-book reader (3-stars); the Sony PRS-700BC (3 stars); the Amazon Kindle 2 (4 stars) and the Kindle DX (3.5 stars).
More to the point, they give the main reasons along with links to the actual reviews with much more detail.
As usual, reviews don't take into consideration, though, the very high cost of unlimited wireless access (which is not for only the Amazon store as too many have thought), but that's been covered here quite a bit already.
Also, Gizmodo has a detailed review of the Cool-er eBook Reader. Many photos and a clean, clear looking screen but, like other reviewers, they find it awkward to use, and they recommend the Kindle 2 and Sony PRS-505 over this reader. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.
