Summary: There are some great reviews here, so there's not much for me to add, but I'll try. 1. For a DSLR, the price is about the best you can find for a body plus two reasonable zoom lenses. My nice Nikon plus lenses got destroyed in an accident, so I was looking a replacement using the insurance money.
Great Camera! wish I could get a defect free one though...

Summary: The Pentax K-x was my first SLR, and I got it after a lot of research in which emphasis was on compactness, image quality and features/ease of use, and a huge plus for the K-x was that it accepts standard AA batteries.
Summary: Well, as a first time DSLR owner, I must say this product is great for beginner like me. The AutoMode is great, it is helping me to shoot really nice pictures already. There are 2 things I don't like. 1. Video - it is limited to 4GB or 25 minutes of video 2.
Summary: This is my first SLR camera. It takes fantastic pictures and has more options and tweaks than you could ever want. Its very easy to use right out of the box even for my wife, yet if you want to tweak your photos and get into it everything SLR offers, the options are there and then some.
Summary: After many years of Point and Shoot compacts (Minolta S414, Canon S400, S410, Fuji F10, F30) and Ultra Zooms (Panasonic FZ18) I finally bit the bullet and bought the Pentax K-x Dual lens kit DLSR from Amazon.
Summary: K-x is a good solid reliable camera. It is an entry level DSLR. I've compared my image quality to the more expensive Canon DSLRs. The K-x produces fuzzier images with a bit more noticeable chromatic aberration.
Summary: I have had my Kx for about 3 weeks now and taken about 200 shots. As most reviewers have stated for the money it's a great value. The one and only flaw that was a shocker are the sounds it makes when in "auto foucs" and shutter noise.
Outstanding camera the quality minded at a low price.

Summary: This K-x was a no-brainer for me. I have Pentax cameras and lenses going back over 30 years. I also have Nikons, Canons, Minoltas, Mamiyas, and some others. Pentax makes an extremely good product for the price and is my favorite because of this.
Summary: I've been using the K-x for about 3 months now, and it's been a sweet little camera. I'm not a pro, don't care about the whole Nikon vs Canon debate, I just want a good camera I can operate that takes great photos, and I can afford. So far, this camera has done it all.
