Cons book prices could sometimes be better - though this is a problem beyond Amazon's control caused by the publishers.
Summary I'm an electronics nut and this is one of my absolute favorite gifts ever. Highly recommended!
Pros Hardware has a slim, polished look. Very professional. Reading experience is fast, reactive, and very nice. the Kindle Store is no joke ENORMOUS! That's definitely a good thing.
Cons Buttons are a little difficult to get used to - small and sometimes laggy on the screen. The experimental web browser is terrible to almost all browsing experience. The Kindle's operating system looks like it came from the 80's, not much eye candy...
Summary The best e-reader hands down. It's the best in every way. he reading experience is polished and no frills. The store could keep any avid reader occupied forever. GET GET GET. and did i mention that $139 is and insanely cheap price to pay?
Pros - light weight
- sleek design
- magnificent e-ink screen
Cons - lousy looking "home" screen interface
- no free case/cover
Summary best e-reader out there, hands down. remember analogies? well, in simplest bottom-line terms...
Amazon Kindle 3 : Books : : Apple iPod : Music
Pros I loved the Kindle till tonight. The e-ink is so much more readable, and the screen glare-free. I was a big supporter till it broke.
Cons I only got 14 months use out of this nearly $200 item. Tonight the screen failed. They offered me a refurb for $85. I don't want a refurb. Such a disappointingly shoddy product. I guess this is planned obsolescence.
Pros easy to use
easy to download books and Text, PDF
Cons Defective screens fail within a year
mine failed christmas week
23 days out of warranty
Ama offered to replace for 85 plus shipping
same defective unit?
85$ a year plus purchased books
Summary They don't last long
make sure you get extended warranty or buy the Sony
Sony seems to have less problems with screen.
