    New Kindle Buyer? Thinking about Nook? Read on ...

    I got my first Kindle. This is a nice ebook reader. I'm going to jump right in and tell you what I found to be its Pros and Cons. Then I'm going to tell how it compares to its biggest competitor, the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch.Kindle's Pros:Great Screen: Many people do not find LCDs hard to read on (e.g. smartphones, tablets, Kindle Fire, Nook Color, etc.), but virtually everyone will find E-Ink easier to read, any time of day. Especially the newest E-Ink Pearl displays. They simply look like paper and ink. I have never experienced any eye strain reading E-Ink book readers, but I have with LCD based phone/tablet screens.Thin and Lightweight: This Kindle is thinner than any paperback and lighter too. This makes it very easy to hold in a sitting position, and for long periods too. It also makes it easy to transport in a purse, backpack, or messenger bag (or in luggage for traveling). Many people like to take a few books when travelling, and this... 4/5 L. Kirk "Crabseye" (Pennsylvania, USA) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2012

    Do you just want to read a book?? Than this is the kindle for you!

    I have owned a Kindle for several years now. I have had the 2nd generation Kindle and I have had the Kindle Keyboard. When my mom expressed interest in getting a Kindle I decided to give her my Kindle Keyboard because she doesnt have Wifi in her house and my older Kindle Keyboard had 3G, which is what she needed. And I decided to buy the Basic Kindle for myself because (1) I didnt want to wait for the Paperwhite to come out and (2) I just needed Wifi and (3)and most importantly I JUST WANT TO READ A BOOK, not listen to text-to-speach, or go shopping on Amazon, or listen to music, etc. All I want to do is read a book...thats it! This Kindle is perfect for that. Its smaller and lighter, the pages turn faster than the Keyboard version, it basically has everything I need to download a book and read a book with a much better price than the Paperwhite or Keyboard.

    Great entry level reader

    I travel for work. More and more, I find myself leaving the Kindle Fire at home and traveling with just an e-ink Kindle. So when I broke my Kindle 3, I decided to replace it with this entry level Kindle (without special offers).What's good:* Smallest, lightest e-ink Kindle available.* Still has the page turn buttons!* Like all the e-ink Kindles, this thing has amazing battery life.What's just OK:* Only 2GB memory. More is better. Then again, after two years of buying books I'm nowhere near filling this thing up.* Text entry using the 5-way switch works, but that's about all. I'm surprised it works well enough that I can't consider it a negative.What's not so good:* The lighted cover costs nearly as much as the Kindle! Anyone thinking of picking up this Kindle and the lighted cover should look at the new paper white models with integrated frontlight.The new Kindles look awesome. But they... 5/5 Aaron Ueland (Marysville, WA USA) - See all my reviews, September 6, 2012

    Decent, inexpensive, entry-level tablet

    This is the next-generation Kindle Fire HD but with an updated operating system and new features, a redesigned shell (with the power and volume control buttons more readily accessible) and the power adapter included rather than as a separate $19.99 accessory. And all of this at a great price. When you consider the formerly separate cost of the adapter, you'd have spent $80 more just a couple of months ago for almost the same tablet.NOTE: This is the base model of the three models that Amazon is shipping this year: the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire HDX, and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". Despite what I wrote above, this model is not really the successor for the Kindle Fire HD; it's the successor for the Kindle Fire. The successor for last year's Kindle Fire HD is this year's Kindle Fire HDX. I think a lot of reviewers are missing that point because of Amazon's unfortunate naming conventions.

    A 4.5 star tablet (Updated)

    First off, I would like to say this tablet is a great deal for just $139.99. I tried finding a tablet for under $100 that would just work properly, and to let you know, it's impossible. Secondly, I want to tell you how I decided to buy this tablet.I first bought the 9 inch Dragon touch tablet for 78$ but to be blunt it sucked. It was so slow that the web browser would always freeze, even if I did a simple Google search. I did not want to take a chance with it anymore and returned it after 2 days of using it; then I decided to give the kindle fire HD a chance.Exterior: The exterior is well built. No loose pieces, and the plastic is very firm. My previous cheap tablet had plastic that felt it was going to snap if you held it too hard. Of course the iPad mini has a glass screen and aluminum body, but it also starts at $329. There are 2 ports: a micro usb and a headphone jack to plug in your headphones.

    Has some nice new features, but I'm glad I kept my 2012 KFHD too!

    This new KFHD replaces last year's basic Kindle Fire. Although it has some cool new features, it lacks a camera, microphone, and HDMI port. For this reason, I'm glad I kept my 2012 model since it does have these 3 features! Here are my initial impressions of the 2013 Kindle Fire HD: I like the placement of the on/off & volume buttons. Being on opposite sides makes it unlikely to hit the wrong one. I never cared for the carousel (this is what you see when you turn your Kindle on and it contains all the books & apps you have recently accessed), and now there's an option to have favorites showing on the home screen instead, and the apps/books can be rearranged to your liking. I was very surprised that web pages can no longer be placed in the favorites bar (which is now being called "home"). I don't know why Amazon removed this option, and we also are unable to have the last accessed web page appear in the carousel. But you can still bookmark your favorite web pages &... 4/5 MarkM - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Generic USB charger, USB cable not included

    This exact power adapter came standard with what Amazon calls now the 'Kindle Keyboard' models (Kindle 3) but NOT with the Kindle Touch and the least expensive model ($69 no touch) now known as plain 'Kindle'. It should NOT be used with any of the Kindle Fire models. It can be used just about anywhere in the world (100-240V) for as long as you have the proper plug adapter.To charge a Kindle you will need a generic USB Type A/Micro B cable and one is supplied with every Kindle purchased and you can do it in several different ways:- Off a laptop or PC through one of their 'powered' USB ports (you will need a laptop or a PC)- With this adapter which comes with all Kindle 3s or can be purchased separately (you will need the Amazon-supplied or any generic USB cable)- With a third-party, branded or generic USB charger (search Amazon for either 'kindle charger' or 'usb charger')This specific charger works for all 3d and 4th generation Kindles... 5/5 A.

    Lightweight, good viewing area.

    Finally received the Kindle Lighted Leather Cover for the newest version Kindle. It is VERY lightweight and I had to double and triple check the description considering it states this is a leather cover. The front cover is very thin with a medium-weight cardboard feel to it. The "leather" on the front cover is extremely thin and you can immediately tell the surface will be easily scratched and marred with normal everyday use. The inside of the front cover has a thin microfiber material to protect the screen. The back cover is hollowed out plastic to form-fit your Kindle and snaps in with relative ease.Using the enclosed graphic instruction card, I removed the Kindle as shown, having to use just enough pressure to make me a bit concerned for someone who would place and remove their Kindle in this cover frequently.

    A Step Down In Quality

    I owned a Kindle Keyboard for about a year, and I purchased the leather lighted case for that unit. While the corner light left a little to be desired as far as even lighting, overall I was very pleased with the case. Based on that experience, I went ahead and purchased the lighted cover for my new Kindle. I can't say this experience has as been as positive.Let's start off with what's good about the case. The Kindle battery powered light is a big improvement. The light is now centered on the screen, so illumination is more even now. I don't use the light often, but in the cases where I do it will be nice to have more balanced coverage. One positive on the case itself is that I appreciate how much lighter this one feels than the previous generation. The hinge area is smaller, which means less of the "spine folding" effect the other one took on after heavy use. I never took my Kindle Keyboard out of the case after it was put in, so the snug fit I have seen complaints about... 3/5 Joe E - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I recieved it today!

    I have had the Kindle Keyboard with it's lighted cover and now I have the new Kindle with lighted cover. I will briefly compare them and then list the pros and cons of this cover.In comparison:-The kindle keyboard in the cover is much heavier than the new kindle in it's cover. The new case does a much better job of securing the kindle as well, it is no longer hinged only on one edge, but instead it is form fit inside of a rigid rubber shell that attaches to the back of the new kindle-The lighting is about the same between both cases, but where the old case lit the screen from the top right corner, the new case lights the screen from the top middle.-I feel like the old light mechanism was more durable. The light bar on this cover is made out of very stiff, thin plastic instead of the thick rubbery plastic that contained the light on the old cover. It also hinges open instead of pulling out of the case, and the hinge feels subpar... 4/5 M. Thurig - See all my reviews, November 18, 2011

The Amazon case (AC) is MUCH thinner and lighter than the Marware case.

The disadvantage of the MC in terms of weight is balanced by the protection it provides. The MC case is well padded; the AC is not.

    Well built, sturdy case for Kindle Fire HD

    I picked up this case along with the 7" Kindle Fire HD based on the description of the product and the fact that it is produced directly by Amazon, opposed to the 3rd party options like Marware that were the only options back when the original Kindle Fire was released. So far on day 1, i'm extremely pleased and happy with the construction and quality of the case.The main body of the case is a hard plastic shell, with speaker grills cut out for the speakers on the Fire HD, and plastic buttons for power and volume. The plastic is somewhat flexible and can bend a little bit, but looks strong enough that it wouldn't easily snap or crack if it dropped. The Fire itself slips right in and is held in pretty well; I can turn the case upside down without worrying that the Fire would fall out. The flap for the cover is lined with a soft cloth to protect the screen, and also looks like material that won't fray anytime soon. Magnets look like they're on the corners of the device to... 4/5 Stanley Fu (Irvine, CA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Disappointing, especially for the price

    I'll briefly summarize the things that work for this case to reinforce what has been stated already. That it is from Amazon itself and designed for the Kindle. The fit is snug, it is light, has a much better texture and feel than is conveyed in the pictures. The awesome sound from the speakers is unobstructed and the magnetic lift-to-wake lid is a nice touch, with convenient case cover buttons for the volume and power buttons.However one of the key uses of the fire for me is to watch shows or videos while multi-tasking in the kitchen. So the fully adjustable stand position at first appeared as a positive. Then the flaw appeared,on smooth surfaces such as a granite counter or wood table the lid slips out from the back causing the kindle to fall flat on its back. This has happened repeatedly, and even when the lid is against another object, then the front will slide out. For how much this case cost (a quarter of the device price) this is unacceptable.

    This book really is about things mother used to make

    For those of us interested in history, or perhaps simpler more organic ways of doing things, this will prove a interesting and entertaining read. This book really is about the way our mothers used to do things. It's full of recipes, heavy on sweets, rolls and cakes. ( There is a Jelly Roll recipe in the book I am destined to try.) The book is also chalked full of tips on preserving meats and veggies. Needless to say some of the recipes use some old terminology, like soured milk, but if you have any questions about that a simple google search will produce the desired results with instructions as to soured milks. The real joy for a history lover comes in some of the old household tips. For instance the book lists early potpourri ideas as " ways to remove offensive odors from the home" It suggests sprinkling coffee over hot coals from the fireplace. That would work! It also says sugar burnt on the fireplace shovel purifies the air. ( May have to try that and see... 3/5 Kindle Junkie - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Old-time Cooking at its Best!

    0 4/5 Janet C. (GA, USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Things Mother Used to Make (Kindle Edition) I only gave this book a 4-star rating because the formatting is not very good for Kindle; everything's the same-size font and line after line. But the recipes would get 5-star ratings because they are very old recipes that you don't see every day. Since when have you seen a Huckleberry Dumpling recipe, or filled cookies, Old-time Gingersnaps, or recipes for Butterscotch that include "This is very nice when cooled on snow?" There's Beef Stew with dumplings (not the southern-style, ladies)and for the fun of it, there's Crust Coffee and Coffee Jelly. LOL Cool!

    My Thoughts (Typed Using The Kindle Fire HD 8.9)

    Let me start out by saying that I am new to the tablet world and have had no experience using any tablets prior to this purchase. That being said, I spent a great deal of time fishing around through reviews and specs of what seemed like countless tablets for months. The obvious cliche conclusion led to all fingers pointing at some variation of an iPad, yet for me, I do not see much sense in purchasing a tablet (regardless of brand) for around the same price as a cheap yet descent laptop that will have more potential.Enter the Kindle Fire HD.I will spare you the story on my process of how I ended up choosing a Fire HD and get right to what you all want to know: my thoughts and experience thus far with the product.Picture: (10/10)I will start with this since obviously that was the first thing i noticed. In a word, incredible. Now its not "eye popping" or anything out of this world, but i can honestly say it exceeded my expectations and i was... 5/5 Rick Mallory Jr. (Colonial Heights, Virginia) - See all my reviews, November 22, 2012

    Excellent Value and Great Gadget

    Originally published in November 2012, Updated January 19, 2013 after using this Fire for several months...As there appears to be mixed reviews of the 8.9' Fires - ones with 4G access and those without - to clarify, this review is for the 8.9" tablet with the 4G connectivity option.To get the iPad comparison out of the way, I put this tablet side-by-side to my iPad 2 I use for work. Downloads were slightly faster and the video screen resolution and the colors were more vibrant on the Fire vs. the iPad 2.Screen Display / Video Playback:With the larger HD screen, if playing video is important to you this is the version of the Fire to get as the screen display is fairly impressive with sharp and crisp colors. The display on this HD Fire was one heck of a lot better in terms of sharpness than last year's model and even this year's smaller HD model.Amazon also added a cool feature on this one with the HDMI micro connection port... 5/5 Michael Gallagher (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews, November 24, 2012

    Not the Greatest Tablet, but a Good One

    I wasn't really in the market for another tablet, but my girlfriend ended up getting one for me so she got me on this one. I would like to say that this tablet reminds me of the first Motorola Droid smartphone that came out several years back. The phone jam packed a ton of bells & whistles into its hardware and software to give a lot of bang for your buck. This is what it feels like amazon has done with the Kindle Fire 8.9. They have put a lot of advanced hardware and innovative software, so for the average user, specially someone who absorbs a lot of media, you get a lot for the price. But just because you get a lot for the price, doesn't mean it is without its flaws. This is an updated version of my likes and dislikes, (my original analysis was a bit rushed, this is more detailed):LIKESBuild QualityI like the build of this product, it has good material design and durability.

    Kindle Me!

    Update May 2013:I have used my K2 literally every day since getting it over four years ago. It's showing it's age a bit from all that usage and I'm starting to get nervous that one day it's just going to give out on me all of a sudden. I'm so attached to this model that I have recently purchased a used K2 in good condition, instead of buying a new Kindle as a backup. I love having the keyboard and buttons for quick, no-fuss access to things, and I like that the info such as book title, location number, battery status, and wireless status are always displayed on the screen, which isn't true on the models after this one.If you're not a touch screen fan (like me) or don't have a lot of money to spend, then getting a good condition used K2 on ebay or elsewhere might be the way to go. Kindles of this age might be having battery problems (mine was only holding a charge for a couple days until I got a new battery), but you can purchase replacement battery kits online... 4/5 Robin L.

    Kindle 2 : First Impressions from a Kindle 1 owner

    On the one hand I love my Kindle 1... I use it everyday, I subscribe to my favorite newspaper, I mark up my books with annotations, highlights and bookmarks.On the other hand my Kindle 1 annoys me... unintended page changes, the awkward way I sometimes have to hold it to keep from hitting buttons, the sometimes slow page refresh, and the screen freezes that now has me traveling with a paper clip lest I need to do a reset while commuting on the train.I've had the Kindle 2 in my hands for almost a day and have carried it on one commute. What follows is my "first impressions" review of the Kindle 2 from the perspective of an owner of the original K1. What's different, what's better and what's worse?5 big things I immediately noticed as different:First, when taking the K2 out of the box I immediately noted that the back cover is not easily removable (if at all) and won't slip off in my hands - as was frequent with the K1. The keyboard is... 4/5 P. Inhofer - See all my reviews, February 25, 2009

    The Dinosaur & the Kindle

    I am not a gadget girl. I am not an early adopter. I am a dinosaur. I am in love with books. I like the feel of them, the smell of them, and I am a passionate supporter of independent booksellers. I am the last person in the world who would buy a Kindle. However, Amazon likes me. They gave me a Kindle 2 as a reward for services rendered. Well, who would turn that down?Here's the shocker... I LOVE it! I can't even believe how much I love my Kindle. A friend of mine wrote a detailed critique of the first Kindle, and I have to say that the new design is a vast improvement. Aside from being slimmer and sleeker, there are plenty of places to hold the device comfortably without activating any functions. The screen is easy to read off of, and I honestly believe that I can read faster on a Kindle than I do with a traditional book. I'm not sure why. Faster page turns? What I can tell you is that it's exceedingly comfortable and easy to read off the Kindle anywhere,... 5/5 Susan Tunis (San Francisco, CA) - See all my reviews, May 6, 2009

    Perfect!

    0 5/5 Aubrey M Gerth - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Amazon Kindle Fire HD Standing Polyurethane Origami Case (will only fit All New Kindle Fire HD 7"), Mineral Black (Accessory) I love this case! I originally purchased the Marware Origin Cover, but it was a huge disappointment so I returned it and bought this instead. I was hesitant to spend so much on a case, but it's totally worth the price. It's great quality and fits snugly, but it's also light and compact (not at all bulky like I was afraid of). The cover is magnetized so it stays put, and unlike the Marware case the magnetized cover actually puts the Kindle to sleep and wakes it up when you close and open it. The origami design allows the Kindle to stand hands-free either horizontally or vertically, so it's very versatile. I am so happy I bought this case, I would recommend it to anyone. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 18, 2013

This review is from: Amazon Kindle Fire HD Standing Polyurethane Origami Case (will only fit All New Kindle Fire HD 7"), Citron (Accessory) I really debated on this case I have only ever used a book style cover in the past and often propped my Kindle for ease of use. The oragami cover holds my Kindle snuggly. It snapped right in for a perfect fit. The clever design does exactly as it says. No more cramped hands and awkward propping and using 2 hands to type is a nice change. Close the cover your Kindle sleeps. Open the cover your Kindle wakes. The volume control, power and speakers are not compromised. Feels durable very pleased with this purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 21, 2013

    Great case... couple caveats...

    Pros:The color is great, and it fits the Kindle perfectly. The openings are where they are supposed to be and there is no overlap. The material has a nice feel to it, too, and it doesn't really add much to the overall weight of the device. I like the unique origami fold, and it's nice that it can be used for both portrait and landscape. The magnetic seal automatically puts the device to sleep when closed, and automatically wakes when opened, which is great for battery life.Cons:I started noticing a week after using this case that the amazon logo makes a slight impression on the screen. I don't have a screen protector on it yet (silly me), so I wonder if that would make a difference. I'll update this review once I get one. Regardless, this is a problem and a gross oversight on Amazon's part. It's supposed to protect the device, not damage it.Less problematic, but still worth mentioning, is that when the stand is used for portrait orientation, it... 4/5 Robert Foster - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
