    Great e-reader

    |
    Posted .

    I bought it as my first e-reader and it is phenomenal. I know many people don’t like that it does not have a back light but if you want to read in the dark you can always download the kindle app in your phone/tablet and finish reading that last chapter. It is very light and carry around everywhere. I also found a deal for $50 but if it was sold at its original price it is still worth it.

    Fantastic E Reader

    Posted .

    This Kindle has no extra bells or whistles that would cause major battery drainage. Sometimes less is more. No distractions to keep you from reading, no backlights to fatigue your eyes. Be aware that you can't read this Kindle in the dark. Pretty simple to operate. FYI there is no wall plug adapter for this unit only the USB cord that plugs into the Kindle, and computer for charging. You can buy an adapter separately. If you have the Kindle Fire HDX that adapter works with this kindle. You can use that adapter to charge it from the electrical outlet. I recently purchased this Kindle. I do have had other Kindles, and enjoy them immensely. I purchased this one for outdoor use. So far I Love it!

    LOVE MY KINDLE

    OK, I was so unsure of this Kindle because it does not have all of the bells and whistles of the others. BUT I am very happy with it. I love my Kindle! I have managed to read a book a week on it sicnce I got if for Christmas. I have been reading the free books on Kindle. There are so many to pick from. While home, I download the books that I want to read and then while I am in the car or waiting at the DMV, I just pull of the book and read. It remembers where I am in the book. This Kindle does not have the back light. I was nervous about that but so far this has not been a problem because the light it has is fine for me. When I am reading in the car, I enlarge the font and it makes seeing the words easier for me. That is the most important factor for me because I can get car sick if I read while riding in the car but with the larger font I don't have that problem. I wear glasses with bifocals and holding this seems to be more comfortable than a book because I can hold it up if I need to. The size is perfect! Again, I can enlarge the font so the smaller screen size really has nothing to do with the readability. Love it!!

    Great value for basic e-reader. Great features!

    This Kindle is great value for what it is. You'll need to treat it like normally would with a standard book in regards to reading environments. There is no light, so you'll need to read in a well lit room and can be read easily in the sun. Goodreads is automatically on there so I can log my books while and after reading. Syncing with Amazon is seemless and easy to purchase through the website or loan through my local library. The battery is outstanding, and I haven't had to charge it yet! The built in dictionary is awesome for words you come across you don't know. Even upon completion of the book, all your highlighted words are compiled in a list to show how many and what new words you learned from this book! Incredible feature for anyone, especially younger readers!

    Kindle for my kid

    |
    Posted .

    In trying to get my son to read more and thought a kindle would help. First I got a good deal on an old kindle model that had been refurbished and it quickly broke. I had a gift card to Best Buy and this one was on sale, so I got it for him. I also bought him a silicone case and bought a Best Buy warranty. It is much easier to use this model vs the old one that he had originally, and I like that you can use FreeTime app on this device but you only just get the books. I also use overdrive to get him books from the library. So far it is working great for us. I bought this at Best Buy instead of getting it online from Amazon because I like the Best Buy warranty and that they are easier to deal with than Amazon.

    Great entry level e-reader

    Posted .

    I purchased this Kindle for my wife because her Kindle Fire gives off too much glare to use in sunny conditions. Besides being able to use it while riding in the car during daytime, the biggest advantage she found is that it is significantly lighter than the Fire. Since she reads for hours on end that is a big plus. The main drawback is that the graphics aren't as clear with this reader. All in all, it was money well spent.

    I travel a lot for work and this ebook has changed my life. Instead of carrying around 2-3 books, I now place this in the zipper of my bag and have access to all the books I need. The screen is also very similar to paper and I find I do not get “screen fatigue” It does take a little time getting used to reading off the unit but the ability to adjust text size is a big help.

    works like it should

    Posted .

    I had a Kindle touch years ago and had stopped using it. But I want to be able to focus on reading and not pop-ups from other apps so I bought this new Kindle to avoid the distractions of reading on my phone. The device is smaller than both my original Kindle touch and my husband's Kindle Paperwhite. I was able to quickly get connect to the internet and begin downloading Kindle books I checked out via Overdrive. The device can be held in one hand comfortably, and it's lightweight enough to feel quite portable without appearing flimsy. This Kindle has some buggy-feeling holdovers from previous generations: occasional leftover pixels during page/screen pages. However, I find the touch screen to be responsive without being jumpy. The bottom/power button sometimes takes an extra push to activate, or perhaps just needs me to focus a bit more. I don't mind the "special offers" and generally ignore them completely, yes, this is a generally annoying feature, but I'd rather spend that $20 on books. The backlight can be adjusted to read outdoors or in your bedroom in the dark (handy if your partner nags about keeping a booklight on). Another reviewer commented on the PPI. Personally, as I don't use the device for pictures/illustrations/detailed charts, I frankly don't care. The images that appear in the special offers are clear enough, and the default sized print is crisp and clean and I have no issues reading without my glasses. If you frequently read books that are illustration/graphic-heavy, you may prefer a Paperwhite or other device. I'll adjust my review if my sentiments change but for now I am very happy with my new Kindle.

    great upgrade

    I've been using the original B&N Nook ereader for several years now. I finally decided to upgrade. I wish I'd done it a lot sooner. The new Kindle touchscreen ereader is phenomenal. The device is light and easy to carry, almost unbelievably so. It is fast and responsive and touch screen has 0 delay. I would recommend anybody in the market for this one buy one immediately. You won't regret it.

    Great reader with long battery life

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this Kindle Paperwhite for my son to use at school, instead of his more expensive and delicate tablet. The display options make it adaptable for just about anyone, and is much easier on the eyes when reading for an extended period of time. Please keep in mind that this does not have a glowlight. The Kindle is durable, and although I bought a case for it, a case really isnt necessary if you are relatively careful with it. The most surprising thing about this has been the extra long battery life. My son is an avid reader, and noticed that he needs to charge his Kindle considerably less than when he uses his tablet.

    I've been using tablets (iPads and Android tablets) since the original iPad and have read numerous Kindle books on them. I wanted something I could read outside, as reading outside on my tablet caused the battery to drain quickly, if I could even read it. This works great outdoors (even with sunglasses), and I find myself reading a lot more on it than my tablet in general. I like that there are no distractions, and the display is much more comfortable for reading. It's not the greatest interface but it does what it needs to do. It's also a bit expensive just for reading, but in the long run it's still cheaper than buying books.

    Definitely the product for long time readers. Easy on the eyes. I bought this for my wife who until then was reading on other mobile devices which hurt your eyes. This one is really soft and still very legible. As if you are reading from a book under room lighting.

    My wife loves it

    |
    Posted .

    My wife loves to read, but she was always hesitant to try ebooks. She used to think that ebooks could never have the same tactile feel as a physical book. I talked her into it by telling her its lighter, easier to hold, can hold thousands of books and if she hated it we can return it. But she loves ebooks now and doesnt want to go back. She also found out that Amazon has a lot of books which cost nothing, namely classics and such...I think. If you like to read in the dark then get the paperwhite version. The LED's are a nice touch.

    Nice Product of Kindle begineers

    |
    Posted .

    Product is good, light. Amazing battery backup. I charge the Kindle one in 4 weeks. Great product for reasonable price. USB connection is easy, Books are easy to download. Overall, everyone must have Kindle with them and this is the best product/model to start with. Understandably, this is the beginner level model for people who never used Kindle before. Features like LED lights, White paper background are not available on this model. These features are there on higher models so one cannot read it in Dark without lights. But again, for this price you would not get any other good readers. If you are someone who reads in dark then I would suggest go for Higher Kindle models.

    I got this for my daughter who kept loosing her computer/tablet privileges yet she still wanted to read. This e-reader was perfect for her as we already had a ton of Kindle books. It's much easier to read on than the Kindle Fire. The matte screen keeps glare to a minimum. Not to mention she keeps cracking the glass screen of the Kindle Fire. This Kindle has a plastic screen which won't crack and break like her other tablet. I understand her Kindle Fire has parental functions I could use to keep her from playing, but it just seemed like too much trouble, and she prefers to read on the Kindle.

    Good replacement for old devices

    |
    Posted .

    This was purchased as a replacement for an aging third party e-reader. It is light weight, compact, easy on the eyes while reading and has a long battery life. The Kindle library has a wide variety of books, many of which are free. The one draw back for some people may be that the lock-screen has ads. This is only on the lock-screen, the ads don't appear while using the device and Amazon can permanently remove the ads for a fee.

    It's great but you need to pay extra for ad free

    The Kindle is amazing. This is my second one. The price was misleading however as I had to pay something like another extra 30 bucks to get rid of the ads. Just know that
