  • Summary: Don't plan on storing any videos on this. Cloud use is highly recommended. Download one video and you're almost out of memory.

KF HDX 8.9 is ok; do homework on Prime download before you buy

B. Tarbuck, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: This review is for the the no-ad 64 GB wifi-only HDX 8.9. To Amazon's credit it arrived about 2 weeks earlier than originally claimed. I have a Galaxy S3 Android smartphone so the HDX is for media / web surfing. Since I had already been using Amazon Prime and Cloud Music it was a no brainer for me to use the HDX to fill the role of media / web surfing on a tablet. Be informed about the download limitations to this device.

Customer Care

Stuart, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Where can I find out what functions work overseas and what functions don't? There doesn't seem to be any type of customer care and it appears that if you are not in the UK most of the functionality is null and void.

New Kindle Purchase

Stephen M. Lock "Hendonman", Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Lovely machine but the embedded Vodaphone chip put me off completely. I am an EE user, phone and broadband, and planned to sync this machine to my other EE products but the Vodaphone chip prevents that. No way am I going to pay for yet more broadband access when I have excess on my phone and at home. I also found the software confusing as it offers both Windows and Mac OS so, reluctantly, I have opted to return the Kindle.

Okay

Mervyne Dalton, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Great improvement in the weight, and speed but don't like the position of the on/off switch. Its still no better reading outside, the screen is too reflective and difficult to see in sunlight. I bought this at the more realistic price of £297, but notice the price and gone back to £369.On the HD my service provider synchronised my email contacts easily, on the HDX it could not import my email contact list and took your Amazon technician almost 30 minutes to sort it out,...

Nice but.....

PeteT, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: A very nice bit of kit, quick and responsive. Solid feel to the device. Bloody quick delivery...Same day. Three stars though as the app library is missing apps that I would like, (inc Sky GO, ITV, 4OD & Demand 5 players), which is a shame as it limits my full use of the Fire HD. Liked the £49 Prime offer for the first year, although I think the free movie & TV catalogue will need to improve if I am to pay £79 plus next time around.
