Summary: Love it. I am still getting used to all the features. I started with the original Kindle...loved it. Then I was given the Kindle HD...took awhile to get used to it. Now I have my third one...each has elements I love. Still use the other two for certain things. I would advise you to get one.
Summary: When we first received our Kindle, things went well. We were mostly satisfied with the apps available to us, but there were many that were unavailable on the Kindle. Still, it was convenient to access email while on vacation and we liked the quality of the photos it took to post on Facebook.
Summary: At first I really liked the idea of reading books and listening to music. As I began to use it though, problems started. Now while reading, the areas to tap on to have the menus appear are not clear and the same spot will work once after several attempts, then not work later.
Clear easy to read screen and good apps but get a stylus

Summary: My first generation Kindle expired so it was time to consider how to replace it. After a lot of research I decided a tablet would make sense what with all the additional capabilities. The Fire does all I need with ease. The color and screen clarity are superb. Switching between apps is easy.
I've owned every Kindle tablet ever made and just when I think they can't get better, they do

Summary: The sound was greatly improved on this new hdx 8.9. The streaming doesn't buffer, the Mayday feature is soooooooo convenient and Firefly is cool. What's not to love! No complaints here...I'm a bigger fan than ever!
Summary: Beware, my kindle fire just died after 16 months. Will not turn on at all. Customer services say it is dead. Can not help me since the warranty is up. Told me they have no way to know how long they will last, so you need to buy the extended warranty. So if I want a kindle have to buy a new one.
Summary: my hdx8.9 top of the line? so they said. At forteen months broke down, and kindle couldnt fix it. According to one of their representatives, She said that they were made so good, they couldn't open it to fix it. that I need to buy another one. What was broken was the on and off plug.
Summary: Disappointed. I was expecting it to work like my older Kindle where I can download several books to read anytime and that is not how this one works. You have to be connected to a Wi-Fi connection to be able to read your books and that is not always easy when traveling.
