    First ebook tool, appreciating my Kindle Oasis for ease of loading books, reading formats, but especially how helpful were the folks at BestBuy . . . on the phone and in their store . . . BestBuy made this possible with my limited window of opportunity . . .

    The oasis is easy to use, easy to read and I love the page turning buttons. It flips from being a right hand hold to a left hand hold and the page turning buttons stay in the same order. Love that it is water proof and the adjustable back lighting and anti glare glass make it perfect to read no matter where you are.

    Saw this item in the store and had to have it. I am an avid reader and it's very convenient for reading. Holds lots of books and easy to operate. Very easy on the eyes.

    It was time to replace my old 3rd gen Kindle and thought this would be a nice upgrade. I've used a tablet to read as well, but I find e-ink devices easier to read for long periods and with much less glare. Pros - The device feels solid, and the thicker side with the battery makes it easier to hold one-handed. It's fairly responsive and downloads books quickly. Cons - The automatic light adjustment doesn't work well. It would often turn up all the way in a well-lit room or outside and would turn almost off in a dark room. More than once I had to reboot the device because it would lock up, especially if you try to queue up several book downloads at once. The page turn buttons would sometimes change several pages instead of just one (this appears to be a common complaint). The touch sensitivity extended almost 1cm into the button area by the screen, which often caused me to accidentally flip pages if my thumb moved too far over. The same extended area did not exist on the other side of the screen.

    Worth the price

    I upgraded to the Kindle Oasis in Champagne Gold from my Voyage, and was hesitant since I love the sturdiness of the Voyage combined with the haptic buttons, but I'm so glad I took the plunge! The Oasis is a lot faster, the physical buttons are great and it's easy to use with one hand. I only have two minor issues that are so small I can't even justify knocking this review down to 4 stars. One, a small part of my screen near the top (or bottom depending on how I'm holding it) is brighter than the rest. It'sn'ticeable when the Kindle is booting up and when I'm reading in the dark, but not noticeable in daylight, which is when I'm usually reading. Two, the "champagne gold" color honestly isn't a huge stretch from the usual silver color -- when I saw the champagne gold was coming out I decided to wait until I could purchase it, but in hindsight I would've been fine with the silver. It's a really pale gold, so pale that I think calling it gold at all is a stretch. Still beautiful, though. I will say that I'm still a bit nervous using the Oasis without a case, which was never an issue with my Voyage or my Paperwhite. It's probably sturdy, but the thinness combined with the metal back makes me really nervous about dropping it. Overall, I really love the Oasis. If you read a lot and have some money to spend, I think the Oasis is a great purchase.
