    If you are looking for a tablet and worried about price and don't have any other apple products and you don't already have a galaxy/google product then get this. It's great for kids game and for netflix and hulu. I still find it very limiting I'm not entirely sure in what way but it's just not enough for me. My nephew has one and he loves it for games ( age 9) Brother in law loves his, ,mostly for games and sports news apps and major netflix person. My mom loves her but mostly uses it for solitare and reading books. I use my ipad for emails and sync my calander and schedules between my Mac and iPhone basically use it as a laptop with lots of game time So pick one ....what are you looking for in a tablet ...which one of those 4 are you? Also very noticeable speed difference between the HDX AND HD if you are going to use the internet a lot and go from app to app I would suggest going with the HDX

    As far as tablets go this ones not too bad. The screen has a good picture and responds well to touch. The battery will last about 5-6 hours with my kids playing in it. It takes several hours to recharge and seems to take forever if you don't turn it compleatley off while charging it. It keeps locking my kids out where the screen will go compleatley black and no buttons will work, I had to google to find out you have to hold in the power button for 20 seconds to get it to unlock. The kindle free time is great if you have kids. It allows you to set play times and length of play as well as limiting internet and apps used. I would buy it again and actually did for my other kid.

    I bought this for my daughter's 4th birthday it is great for her with the kindle kids ap that allows her to watch a ton of shows such as Curious George and some mouse ballerina show (service is $4/month) I was going to get one for myself as they were on sale but since playing around with hers I've decided to wait and purchase a galaxy for myself as I feel it has more access to the Aps I will be using. I picked no to recommending to a friend but in reality it will depend on what they wanted/needed it for and if it were on sale I wouldn't recommend it at it regular $180 or so price tag I feel there are several other tablet options around that price range that offer more

    I bought the Kindle for my husband for Christmas. He wanted a device to play some apps, get his work emails, read books, and watch movies. The set up was easy. We did notice that the apps are not all the same as the ipad. Loading the free internet security was a challenge. I bought the device so the Internet security was sent to my email address. I had to install the internet security for him. Charging is quick using the charging accessory. The touch screen is responsive. Overall - My husband loves his new tablet and uses it everyday. I ended up buying another Kindle for my son.

    To start off, I purchased 4 Kindle Fire HD 7, out of 4 only 3 would power up and work, never did replace that one. Next outta the 3 remaining, my youngest daughters Kindle was the first one bought, It as of this date has failed to power up/ turn on 4 times. I called in to Geek Squad and no one has any idea on what the possible problem could be, best suggestion I was given, was to return it for a replacement. My kids ages 6 and 10 both love theirs. Mom has one also, shes happy for the games she plays on it. For me the Kindle Fire HD 7 is still lacking.

    Good for the average person. Not too versatile.

    This was my first tablet after using a PC forever. I'm very set in my ways and particular about how I want things to work. I liked it at first, then found it difficult to move around files to and from the device. I had to install Amazon Cloud (which most people have no problem with)...didn't really care for that. Ended up taking it back in exchange for the Nexus 7 which is more versatile and has a lot more memory with just a small cost difference. No more Cloud!

    My daughter loves the Kindle Fire HD,however had issues of not being able to turn on the Kindle Fire. First time we returned the Kindle and got another one. The second one did the same thing within a few weeks. After researching on-line found how to unlock the Kindle by doing a reboot (not intuitively obvious, thankfully internet info helped). This problem seems to happen way too frequent. My daughter had the previous version of Kindle and this problem never ocurred.

    I had the 16gb and I didn't like it. It felt heavy while I was reading, although it as easy to use. I just didn't like the weight of it and I realized although it looked like a fun thing to have, I wasn't going to use to it to watch videos, play games, or do the social networking. I just wanted to read, so I took it back and bought a Paperwhite. Which I'm very happy with.

    Good overall..... We had to send the purchase in because it kept restarting. They replaced it for a refurbished one. I didn't pay extra for warranty, so that was as good as I was going to get apparently. All shipping was paid for by the company. It was a little disappointing to have something brand new have a glitch though.

    The reader is nice and visuals are good. Great price. One problem is it locked up on the first week with a black screen. Nothing worked. Went online and found that if you hold power for 30 seconds, release, and press quickly it restarted. After that so far so good.

    This is a great device for a teen it's affordable and can access the internet or read books and download games. This is the second one we have the first one had issues with the charging port but this was due to improper disconnecting of the charger

    Disappointed I had to order the Kindle, not available in the store at the time of purchase because I wanted the FireHDX, and got the HD. Also you didn't have a case for it or screen saver. My third Kindle, so I am most happy with the product.

    Have a major problem with the 16GB Kindle. Even tech support at Amazon doesn't know how to figure it out. Cannot transfer files from other devices or my previous Kindle to the new Kindle. Was able to do this easily with the 8 GB version.

    I love the kindle but the batteryi life is so short. My daughter has the same kindle and is on it for days without a recharge while mine will run down in a matter of hours. Other than that I love it.

    Bought and set up for a friends mom. I have iPhone and Google pad which are both really self explanatory to use. This was a bit confusing at first but she is getting the hang of it.

    I thought it would be better than ipad for reading. It is not - at least outside. I like downloading movies as there is more storage on it since I haven't bogged it down with music and photos.

    I think it's a great tablet for kids. It has parental controls . Amazon free time for kids is also good. Battery life is short and it's seems to take long to charge.
