Only good for one thing... Reading

  • Excerpt: The Kindle is only good for reading. The appstore is terrible and it is not very easy to use. The front facing camera does not make any sense. It took me a very long time to figure out that the camera only works when you use Skype. If you like to read then this is great for you but if you want to read and do other things then the Kindle is not the right product. Battery is good. Will last long enough to read many books.

  • Excerpt: It worked well but It would take me 15 or 20 minutes to get the web address typed in on it. Took forever. I really wanted to use it to search the net on also and I saw it was not good for this. Had to mail it back! Reviewer received a sample of this product.

Kindle fire not worth it.

  • Excerpt: I don't even use my Kindle Fire anymore. I find it to be boring. There are not enough free applications or games. It would be a great product or a 12 year old who is getting their first computer but other than that I really don't see why they have sold so many. I was interested for maybe two months but after that I lost all desire to use it.

Not worth it

  • Excerpt: If you really want one of these you should really spring for the HD or better. For a 7 incher I rather stick to my Nexus 7. This model of the Fire is just too obsolete to compete with everything else that is out. There are also a slew of other reasons listed below. Netflix is also more sluggish and unresponsive on the Kindle. Pro: Good battery life, solid feeling. Cons: Ugly, thick, no Mirco sd, bad on/off switch position, no volume keys, stuck in Amazon walled garden.

  • Excerpt: My initial feelings about this device were wonderful. My child could access a number of apps to keep him entertained and I could use it for my own pleasure, such as reading, Pinterest, or browsing emails. It was lightweight and easy to access, even my aging mother could maneuver through the screens and access the applications that she was interested in. I didn't see a problem at all with this device, that was at first.

Had trouble charging.

  • Excerpt: I am on my third kindle because the device won't charge properly. It will charge ok...then it won't, no matter the charger I use. I love it otherwise. It's great for reading, surfing the net, games, movies, etc. It has kept my kids entertained for hours. But I'm going to purchase the Google nexus instead of another kindle for my daughter. Battery has trouble charging properly. They need to fix the charging problem.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

  • Excerpt: I bought this product due to it's size and other features that were offered. I do not like reading off of this product due to the glare and the weight was heavier than I wanted. The only use I received fom this product was to watch netflix. There is a glare on the product screen so you can not use this product in any sunlight.

If wanting an e-reader, do not go with the Fire.

  • Excerpt: I did not like this product and ended up returning it. For reading books, I found the device to be too heavy to handle for a long period of time. Although the backlit screen is nice for reading in the dark, the glare on the screen makes it hard to read in the light. I also was not impressed with the browser. There is a limited amount of information you can get from some sites and overall it was just hard to manage.

  • Excerpt: Works great at first, then freezes and the amazon browser was glitchy so had to download another browser app. It works great for reading. I went through 2:first one had battery issues. 2nd one would freeze a lot and finally froze and I couldn't hard boot. Called support and was told out of warranty so I could get a deal for a new one at a discount...savings was around 40.00....ummm no thanks!!

  • Excerpt: Вобщем за такие деньги (200 зеленых) можно купить планшет в тысячу раз лучше.Например Playbook. и не париться по многим вышеперечисленным вопросам.
  • Pros: Экран-горила. Легкий задняя прорезиненая панель. Чичает флеш Не плохая читалка.
  • Cons: Странно что все отзываются о этой модели хорошо. Комплектация убогая Коробка как из под чипсов. Сам планшет очень убогий-тоесть направлен на 2-3 задачи-Читать,Фильмы,инет. И то справляется с ними не очень то хорошо,например не все фильмы идут без форматирования,что доставляет большие неудобства. Нельзя прибавить памяти (которой ооочень мало)
