"Third-generation Kindle problems"4.5 starson by ufoman
Pros: Light weight, extremely useful outside in the sun and very easy to carry around when you're out and about.
Cons: Unfortunately the third-generation Kindle has not or was not properly tested before being released to the public.
Summary: So far Amazon is in the process of sending me my 4th replacement Kindle. It has an extreme problem of the screen freezing. Which you then have to hard reboot the Kindle in order to bring the Kindle back to life. When the screen finally comes up you are at the homepage rather than at the book when you put the Kindle to sleep. You then have to locate your book on the home screen, open it up and then if you want to go to the page where you left off at, you have to re-sync it and hope that you had the wireless turned on when you put it to sleep or else it will not keep track of where you stopped reading at. Customer service is telling me that when you stop reading you should 1st go to the home screen and then put the Kindle to sleep in order to keep the page at where you were at when you stop reading. However, the 1st and 2nd generation Kindle had absolutely no problems at all as far as opening up at where you left off no matter how you put your Kindle to sleep. Amazon customer service has been extremely helpful with my problems by continuously sending me replacement Kindle's , but I feel that they should fix the problem rather than always haveing to send me a new Kindle every week. The only reason why I gave it such a high rating is because I truly love the Kindle when it works but it's just starting to get a little bit ridiculous as far as trying to get one that actually keeps on working properly.
