Not as expected

LESC, Staples
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Expected a tablet like other ones but it is limited. Hard to figure out how to bookmark sites, which is important since many android apps aren't usable with a Kindle tablet apparently. Had advertisements with it, which was irritating. Battery didn't seem to last very long either. Easy to the touch and easy to read. I returned it. I have other Kindles - a reader and a Fire and really like them. Perhaps Kindles people should stick with their strengths.
  • Cons: Hard To Use, Inefficient

NOT FOR US

Disappointed, Staples
22 February 2014
  • Excerpt: We are retired and do a lot of traveling. Wanted to be able to access the internet, our emails and since I do a lot of reading, thought the Kindle was what we wanted. So very disappointed since we were unable to operate the tablet and when I went back to the store, they informed me that I would have to buy a Tutorial to learn how to operate. I cannot believe they do not provide instructions for this product.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Hard To Use

I've been told by Amazon that the refurbished units are as good as new ones

Argyll Eagle, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: What prospective buyers need to be aware of is that if a fault develops with your Kindle during the warranty period Amazon will not repair your Kindle and send it back to you but will replace it with a refurbished unit. My Kindle Fire HDX 64GB, retail cost £400, developed a fault after 6 months. I was told that I was being sent a new unit, but when it arrived in a plain brown box without any retail packaging I made enquiries.

No way to organise your content on the device!

Andy Collins, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: Unlike the basic paper white range, the HD / HDX range do *not* have any way to create folders and organise books and documents. Imagine how much hassle this if, like me, you use your kindle as a 'portable library' with 100s of items to take with you for professional purposes. Sure, you can use the Amazon Cloud to file/sort/order stuff, if you want to get locked in to the Amazon Ecosystem and if you have access to wifi to see your filing system.

Overrated, overpriced, underperformer

Papa, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: If you buy a Kindle in Britain you will pay double what the USA pays then you have to pay for the privilege of using it without ads so that's an extra cost to get something not forcing adverts in your face (that really pisses me off taking money off customers like that, it seems underhanded and sneaky) Then, all choice is taken away from you by Amazon making it exclusive to their store.

A very limited device!

Kenny Quinn, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I have to be brutally honest in my review otherwise there would be no point leaving one. I have been completely let down by this device. There are so many limitations to what you can actually use this device for. It does have a very good screen with a very clear picture. It does have a very fast processor, this was one of the main reasons I purchased this particular item. These two points are the only positives that I can find to put forward.
