    Wish it had a touch screen

    I like the screen on the Kindle and it is a really convenient size. It's easy to travel with and the battery life is good. However, I am having a hard time getting used to navigating between functions: search, book, dictionary, online. It's not touch screen and it doesn't have a keyboard, so it is time-consuming to enter search terms and a little confusing to go back and forth between functions. It still works and I'll use it. It's just a process to learn it. Not as user-friendly as other pieces of technology. And I suppose it's possible the problem is less with the item and more with the user. :)

    I really don't care for this new "basic version" of Kindle at all. It seems like they have really downgraded it (guess to sell more Kindle fires etc.) The screen is too small, and access to settings is more complicated than before. I also don't like having the key board on screen. Personal preference , but I really dislike it. For some reason, it also seems much harder to read than the other one. I would not recommend this at all. Wish I hadn't done it.

    I bought this Kindle to replace my other one that failed after repeated exposure to water. I do not like the controls on the side, I keep hitting them accidently just holding it. Also, it's only 5 weeks old and has shut down on me twice for no reason. I will be contacting Amazon for a replacement. I do like the unlit "paper" look, my eyes never feel strained.

    A very thin lightweight reader. This model no backlight. Stangely the spacing between lines is very tight so the screen looks cramped and hard to read unless you change the default font. I consider no page numbers a major drawback. (enough that if I'd known I might not have bought it.). If no page numbers don't matter to you then this is a very good reader for the money.

    Easy to read, no eye strain, works good with library books. But hard to navigate using buttons. Very difficult when you have to enter text. Screen size a bit small, not enough space for more text. Would be nice if there was external card slot. The cloud is great but wifi is not always available.

    I bought this Kindle to read outside in the direct sunlight. It works great for that purpose. So, I am happy with it. However, it is slow to react and the interface is a little clunky. But, for the $50 I paid, it's a good deal to me.

    Bought this kindle as a gift for my mom, the kindle itself is lightweight and decent, I just don't like the feel of the screen when you try to change pages and stuff it feels fake.

    This kindle has the basic features to provide reading, but it since it is not touch screen, navigation is a little harder than the other model that I had.

    Meets my requirements for reading. I do not have to carry heavy books anymore. It works anywhere as long as I have downloaded reading material.

    Bought for my daughter a beginner reader. Was expecting the ability to read in low light/dark. Also limited on interactive books.

    Compared to the Paperwhite, this was a big disappointment for my husband. I'll be getting him a Paper white for Father's Day!!

    If you don't want to spend a lot on an e-reader and don't mind having an external light source this is perfect.
