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.
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: 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.
Summary: I have loved all of my Kindles (5), and truly hate to give a bad review to the new HDX. The sound was of poor quality, especially compared to my Fire HD, and I could not receive prime movies even after updates. As always, customer service is right there to help if they can and refund when requested.
Summary: I love, love, love my original Kindle and used it all the time. The new Kindle Fire awful; it shuts down all the time or it freezes up. Not just occasionally but every few minutes and all the time no matter what I'm doing.
Summary: In spite of spending 3 hrs. speaking to various Kindle Mayday "experts", I have been unable to send e-mail with my Kindle. It only receives them. Bottom line from the "experts": they "have never heard of this problem before", 2) it must be my server, wi-fi, etc...
Boxed up and returned the very same day I received it.

Summary: Every function I tried on the HDX 8.9" resulted in me rebooting it several times to get them to work. It wouldn't download a magazine nor any of my books from the cloud. It took TWO reboots to finally get those to download/open.
