Too complicated

NanC, Staples
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I need instructions to read & follow. All I got was were to go on the internet. I've put my Kindle away because it's too confusing and will probably not use it. At my age, 76, I dislike having to look up every word of explanation online. Really disappointed.

Fire HD with 4G LTE

Onegar, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: Bought the 8.9 Fire with the 4G LTE AT&T service. After no direction at all on how to set up the AT&T service we finally managed to find out how to make the payment for the service, only to find out it is $50 per month instead of $50 per year as advertised.

Silk Browser is Terrible!!

Mary Mathews, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: Silk Browser is terrible!! I had a first generation Kindle and really liked it but then it wouldn't take a charge which I understand is a common problem. I was given the option to upgrade to this one at a reduced price so decided it do it. I like the bigger screen.

Refurbished is not the way to go.

Joe, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: After going round and round- thinking about what tablet/TV Fire combination to get- I tried the 7” HDX but found it small and hard to read from – I am older and my eyes aren’t what they used to be so I sent it back and ordered a refurbished 8.9HD – What A Mistake!

  • Summary: My Kindle HD8.9 has very short battery life, even in sleep mode it rapidly discharges it's battery. The touch screen is both inconsistent and un-responsive, frequently requiring several presses to input a single keystroke.
