Excerpt: My first kindle that I loved when I got it, wouldn't even come on after 7 months, all I did was read on it. They sent me another, it flickered on & off when I got it. They sent me another, after 8 months it refuses to charge or come on after being plugged in. No more Kindles for me. Hope I can get the books I've paid for onto another device. Maybe digital isn't the way to go after all.
Excerpt: Purchased past generation of HD Kindle Fire and am very pleased. My previous first generation Kindle Fire finally died due to issue with charging port. I loved the additional perks of the Fire, and decided to take the plunge again. Figured I didn't needed the newest version and at $89 this was a great deal. So far this is working well for books- I love the newer reading features, streaming video, downloading and using apps, and email.
Pros: value, Battery Life, Screen/Display, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Easy to Set Up, Speed/Performance
Summary: I actually have the step up version HDX 8.9. I live in a rural area and depend on web based TV viewing to watch weather alerts from my local news broadcasters. Because Amazon wants you to use only it's Apps, I am unable to download my local news station's Apps, making this useless during storms and power outages to watch for severe weather. For me, it's turned into a very high priced e-reader.
Pros: Light weight, sharp screen, good price
Cons: Cannot view livestream or use Google Play Apps
