Summary: The first one Amazon sent me had some coatings missing on the smaller lens. Both lenses in the second kit looked used (judging by the threading in the back of the lens), but at this point I did not care as long as the camera worked. Amazon returns are great!
Summary: I got my K-x early December and shot like a million pictures already. Image quality is superb and make sure you get yourself some quality filters, the IR remote control and a good quality tripod to make it even better.
Summary: I have experience using film SLRs as well as a Nikon DSLR, and I've owned a few Canon compact cameras. After quite a bit of online research, I chose this camera to be my first DSLR, and I am very, very pleased with my decision.
Summary: This, being my first SLR doesn't leave me with a lot of material to reference for a comparison. But from my perspective, I have so far enjoyed very much my time with this camera. I have already surprised myself with the results and look forward to growing creatively with my k-x.
Summary: I am very pleased with the Pentax K-x DSLR camera. The build quality is solid. The image quality (particularly at high iso settings) is also great. HD video recording and Live View are nice additions for an entry level DSLR. It has some really fun features like HDR and cross processing.
Summary: I am absolutely thrilled with this package. At current pricing, I am convinced it is the best deal out there for an entry-level DSLR - and it has more features than most people could possibly use in a lifetime.
Mine was defective...could possibly be a design flaw

Summary: Between speeds of 1/60s to 1/120s (and others, though not as visible) my sample could not take sharp images. It would take mostly sharp images at 1/30s, and sharp images at 1/250s. I also noticed demosaicing artifacts in images as well, although I think that's just the way the camera is.
Summary: In short, awesome camera. Have used Sony's and Nikons before, this bowls them over. Canon DSLR have nicer depth perceptions in outdoor situattion at lower ISOs, but the clarity of picture taken by this think is simply mind blowing. You cannot lose with this. More updates coming soon...
Summary: The K-x is my first DSLR and I did a ton of research before purchasing it. In general I love it. The image quality fabulous. The auto-focus is fast. I love that I can buy old manual lenses for it that are super cheap. I bought a 50mm 1.7 for it that produces wonderful portraits.
Summary: I am an avid reader of reviews and many times use this information to help in my buying decision. Since I suppose I am like most others who shop, compare, read, read some more and still can't decide I hope this might help in your quest for the right camera.
