The Kindle has potential.

us78749, CNET
31 December 2013
  • Summary: The Kindle has potential and software upgrades could make it better assuming it is upgradeable.
  • Pros: The Kindle Paperwhite is a useful product for readers. It is smaller than a book and holds a lot of reading material. The ability to save bookmarks and look up words is good. It has good battery life. It is cheaper than a large smartphone.
  • Cons: Full justification only., Margins of unit too large., No night reading with black background and white fonts., No simulated view of a page turning., The sales advertising excessive., Book cost not cheaper., Limited software design.

Good as a first Paperwhite, not worthy of an upgrade

D. Carlson, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: This review is for the second generation Kindle Paperwhite. Like all kindle e-readers before it, this is a great product. However, I am a bit disappointed as there is not a huge improvement over last year's model.

  • Summary: Let me start by saying, I'm all about the Kindle. I currently own a Kindle 1, Kindle 3, Kindle DXG, Kindle Touch, Kindle Fire HD 7 inch and now a Kindle Paperwhite (have also owned a Kindle 2 and the original Kindle Fire). All are in good working order.

User Review

Lawrence S, Cnet.co.uk

  • Summary: I owned the Paperwhite for about a week before sending it back to Amazon for a refund. In many respects it is a really good product but is let down by the strangely inconsistent screen lighting. The light can sometimes appear coloured or wavy, which is very distracting when you read.
  • Pros: Touch interface is very responsive; navigation is quick and intuitive; simple and uncluttered design.
  • Cons: Light is blotchy and uneven when turned down in a dark room

ottimo ebook

leonhard1904, Ciao
9 May 2015
  • Summary: Ho comprato mesi fa questo ebook è sono soddisfatto dell'acquisto. La batteria è fenomenale, può durare anche più di un mese. Ha tante opzioni interessanti, come salvare una frase tratta dal libro e condividerla su fb.
  • Pros: batteria durevole,  ottimo schermo, non stanca l'occhio, store ricco di libri .
  • Cons: prezzo un po' alto, tende a scivolarti dalle mani, conviene accompagnarlo con una cover .
