    Great for an eReader ... and that's about it.

    I bought this with the intent of using it as it was intended to be used, a dedicated eReader. It was my first exposure to eInk and I guess I've been spoiled by higher pixel density tablet devices like the Nexus 7 and iPad Air/Mini with Retina display. I've also been spoiled by the ability to do other things on a tablet-like device. The interface is slow and scrolling is borderline useless. I don't read in direct sunlight, so that benefit was lost on me. I really wanted it to work, but it didn't. I guess what I'm getting at is that it just wasn't for me. I returned it yesterday and purchased an iPad Mini with Retina display. If you like eInk and eReaders in general, then you'll probably like the Paperwhite.

    I love my Kindle Paperwhite; would recommend it to anyone who likes to read. It has light adjustment for strong light & full dark; it has text font/size adjustment. It has a dictionary features and a way to track characters/places w/ description in the current book. There are many features I like about it...not the least of which is being able to get books just like that! So why my average assessment, you ask? I've had to have it replaced twice since I bought it in Dec. 2012, that's 1/year.

    I bought this to compliment my iPad as a reader, especially in sunny conditions. For that purpose it is great, but that's all I use it for. It is a slow device and basically without features.

    It is OK, but not so good as iPad. In TV ad...iPad looked like washed-out garbage
