"Get the nook!"on by adowlen1
Pros Color touch screen
Cons Slow refresh speed when "turning" pages
Summary Got the nook for my wife. IMO it out-performs the Kindle in nearly every way. I must say that I do like the Kindle but I think the nook is a more quality product.
Pros -No charge for book delivery.
-Great way to store hundreds of books in one convenient package.
-Simple interface, easy to use.
-Great battery life, I can read for days without having to charge the battery.
Cons I have had the Kindle for 6 months now, and absolutely no complaints.
Summary I love the simplicity of the Kindle. I am an avid reader, and have numerous bookshelves full of books. The Kindle lets me buy books without having to buy more bookshelves. They recently added an organizational tool that allows you to place books in self-made categories, and recently pushed through an automatic update. The screen delay is explained in the manual, and it doesn't take long to get used to it. I know that you can't replace the battery, but I don't foresee the need to replace it anytime soon. I also love that with the text-to-speech, when I'm trying to cook dinner, but don't want to stop reading, it reads to me. I also love how you can adjust the size of the font.
I have had flawless performance from my Kindle, and Amazon has an extremely loyal customer out of me!
Pros Good for people who read a lot. Keeps bookshelves clear! Nice, easy-on-the-eyes screen. Good, manageable size.
Cons No wi-fi. Battery is sealed within the device so you can't replace it yourself once it starts to die. (Nook has a replaceable battery) No over the air updates, meaning you'd have to buy a whole new device if Amazon comes out with better features.
Summary If you're going to spend $259 on an e-book reader, get yourself a Nook. Much more worth it than Kindle. Sony e-reader has a terrible screen.
Doesn't have as many books available to you. I've had friends return their kindles to buy a nook instead and I don't blame them.
Pros easy to use.easy manual and simple menus.fast.downloads books in 1 second.big ebook store,magazines and newspapers too.can try sample of book for free.epaper screen, reading hours on end will not hurt eyes.great battery life, lasts more than 3 weeks
Cons It has a black and white screen, and turning on the 3G drains the battery life a bit. Other than that, no complaints.
Summary I am very happy with my Kindle. I think it is much better and affordable than the Nook of Sony Reader, and it works well. I definitely give this product five stars.
Pros I love the easy-to-use navigation, quick response and intuitive. Screensavers of various literary greats. Free book samples. Kindle is naturally easy to hold. I did much research on e-readers and decided on the Kindle as it is tried and true.
Cons Just that it is addictive and too easy to want to buy stuff if you are a true bibliophile! I waited 2 yrs for the price to lower-it is still high, but I gave in finally.
Summary Wonderful product! For those who love to read, buy when you can-you won't be sorry.
