  • Summary: I PURCHASED THIS KINDLE ON 5/6/13 AND NEEDED A REPLACEMENT WHICH I RECEIVED ON 10/3/13. I HAVE ISSUES OF IT SHUTTING OFF SEVERAL TIMES IN THE COURSE OF USING IT ANYWHERE FROM INSTANTLY TO A COUPLE OF HOURS AT A TIME. I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE A FEW TIMES TO NO AVAIL. CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS ARE ALWAYS VERY POLITE.

Battery charging is glitchy

Me, Staples
10 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Bought this yesterday to use on a family vacation. Surprised to see only a usb charging chord in box. Hooked it up to laptop usb port before trip and during the first day but battery just kept depleting. Would not charge via usb even when tablet was turned off. Went to kindle's help site and saw a video recommending using a usb a/c adaptor that most people have for their cell phones. Works, but tablet will not charge unless chord is perfectly inserted in tablet.
  • Pros: Attractive Design

Not So Good - After the Glitter Fades

Neil the Nerd, Staples
30 June 2013
  • Excerpt: At first I loved my Kindle Fire HD. Then the limitations hit. (1) Movies copied over from my network wouldn't play on native video player; solution pay seven dollars for an upgraded player. Complication: now any streaming source won't play, no hulu, no you tube, no prime instant videos. (2) Memory not expandable. This means my two plus year old galaxy phone has more music and video capability than my tablet.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Read, Good Screen Quality
  • Cons: Limited Compatibilty, Limited Storage, Picky Wifi, Poor Software Bundle

Good but why?

swimmergal, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Been using my Kindle for yrs, when on/off switch started going thought I'd upgrade to this. It's a hybrid to a kindle and tablet. For the money, I get better use from my tablet. Should have bought another regular Kindle Seemed to drain much quicker than my Kindle or Ipad Amazon has good selections So long as your not in bright sunlight. The coolness factor of bight pages fades quickly in the sunlight.

Freezing Kindle fire hd

Michael McKenna, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: My kindle fire hd 8.9 keeps freezing. Very frustrating. I suspect it's a problem with the Silk browser. There is also a standard kindle fire 7" in use in the house with no problems whatever. Amazon support not helpful, just pointed me to the online help! I've checked that battery is full and Wi-Fi is full strength. Anybody else experience this problem with the kindle fire HD 8.9?

Would be five stars except for one important thing

S Fisher, Amazon

  • Summary: Adverts and info all seem to say that the Kindle Fire and Audible work well together, and as audiobooks are one of the reasons we wanted one of these, I happily went ahead and purchased for my husband. Here is an example of UK Amazon claiming that Audible will function correctly: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_rel_topic?ie=UTF8&nodeId=201240060 It does not, however, seem to the be the case that Audible works with Kindle Fire HD 8.9".
