Summary: Buy an iPad and download kindle app I wish I had the money to do so I would not have to deal with these problems. I have to continuously tun the thing on and off to get through a book that worked fine on my kindle dx. Oh and you can't return audio books. Don't buy this item it does not work well over time.
Pros: Works like advertised at first. It works as advertised and the scene resolution is great.
Cons: Wireless gets disconnected,, touch screen did not work well, screen freezes , book pages change order, Refuses to load some pages. , Does not allow saving of pdf's,, randomly stops showing pages , Customer service sucks
Summary: Amazon content shoved down your throat and costs extra $15 to get rid of.
Pros: Gr8 screen., Nice sound., Good battery life., HDMI & USB mini ports
Cons: Tablet screen not that reactive to swipes., Typing not accurate or responsive., On/Off, sound switches impossible to find by touch., Can't use your own photos as background or wallpaper., NO FLASH COMPATIBILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: The sluggishness seems pervasive. There's just this annoying delay when doing basic things like tapping, scrolling, opening apps. I'm not real fond of the UI but could get used to it but with the listed specs this should be more responsive. Ended up returning it to try the Nexus 7. Kudos to Amazon for great return policy.
Pros: Beautiful design and form. And screen. Screen is very crisp and sharp.
Excerpt: I wish that I could give it a higher rating - really I do. The device has great potential; however, I experienced many technical difficulties when using MY Kindle Fire HD. I had a real problem unlocking the locked screen just to access the homepage! I would have to slide my finger across the screen many times AND apply a great amount of pressure for the heat sensitive screen to recognize my command.
Summary: I purchased this on 27 February - it has not worked correctly since purchase - turns itself off and on in the middle of reading for no reason. I have contacted Amazon Customer Services twice and the problem has not been resolved. Very disappointed both with the product and follow-up services I am still waiting more than a week now for Customer Services to email or call with their intentions to resolve this problem. Would not recommend - wish I had not bought it!
