    Love this device -- I had been using an older Paperwhite, and it's so nice to have a flush face instead of a raised bezel. Makes it feel much smoother scrolling through pages. Screen resolution seems to be a bit better, as well. No complaints.

    Great product and perfect size. Got this so I didn't have to use my iPad with the Kindle app. Battery lasts very long time, quick too charge, screen is very easy on the eyes. Whispersync is very nice to have.

    This is a great Kindle for those who like to read online versus a paper book. Easy to use, clear reading and just a great product. Highly recommend.

    Replaced a 7th Gen with this one. Nice that the screen is flush now and the unit is even lighter. Water resistance is an added bonus. Still love my Kindle!

    This new kindle paperwhite e reader is way better than my old kindle. Easier to read with the high resolution. When reading outside there is no glare. But the biggest plus for me is the battery life.

    My only Kindle before this one was a 1st generation. Broke a long time ago and did not care to replace. Got this one, amazing illuminated screen, incredible battery life and, on top of that, waterproof. Got myself reading again and I'm so happy with this investment. Love it.

    The one to get

    Been using Kindles and a few tablets for about ten years now. From strictly a reading device perspective this is super clear and crisp and I think the perfect size to handle easily in all of the different relaxing positions you read in different places (bed, recliner, car or plane, etc.). The battery life is a very nice plus. The two downsides to me are 1) price (now on sale at $99 to me is really the upper end of where I think something with this limited function should sell) and 2) the "touch" of the screen for turning the page. Bottom line though is I just bought a second one for the wife.

    VERY fast delivery! This is my first Kindle. Very quick and easy setup. Customizable screen makes reading enjoyable. I look forward to trying Audible.

    I've read a lot of reviews before purchasing this Kindle, and after having it in my hands, I don't understand why some people can be so particular. It's lightweight. The battery is great. The light is perfect. The glare from the screen is extremely minimal. The price is very fair. Buy one.

    I purchased this kindle the day it released. I have had it for over three months now and I just charged it for the third time. I average about a half hour of reading a day. This is a great e-reader. I especially like the waterproofness and the flush screen. Keeps dirt and dust from collecting in the bezel. A great step up

    The Kindle Paperwhite screen is wonderful. The interface is not as user friendly as an iPhone. I wish you could use it in landscape mode vs portrait as typical book. The ads are annoying unless you subscribe. Access to free and low .99c collections of classic authors is outstanding. I wish they had this device when I was in school. As poor folk we never went to libraries.

    Excellent Choice

    This is my first e-reader. I just wanted the most simple way to tap into the Amazon e-book library and this was it for me. The display is crisp and the back light is even. This device is the perfect size for me for travel, reading in bed or just around the house. My only complaint regarding the design is the placement of the power button on the bottom of the device. The way I hold the device, sometimes I accidentally turn it off while reading. Not a huge issue, as it just goes into rest mode and comes back on quickly. If you're on the fence regarding the "with special offers" version, that just means there are ads for books on the lock screen. Personally, I've barely noticed.

    Perfect new Paperwhite. I own the generation just prior to this new one and wasn't sure I would like the new one. I was wrong. The size is perfect. They added a couple more lights, so the screen is really evenly lit. The flat bezel also looks and feels nice. The single button is flatter and smaller so it is less likely to press if you ever hold it at the bottom like I sometimes do. Overall, not a brand new remodel, just an upgrade with thoughtful design changes. Too bad it was a gift for my wife and not for me!
