"I take the Kindle Fire everywhere - it's that good."4.5 starson by jeanfrompa
Pros: Great E-reader (night, too)! Carousel is very handy to see all APPS, books, etc. in 1 place. Great screen quality. Touch screen is responsive. Video quality is great.
Cons: Can only shop on Amazon. Although the stores are good, I like to shop competively and get the best deals.
Summary: . I purchased a Pandigital and then a Viewsonic, I needed to return both of them. Once out of the box, they didn't meet my list of deal breaker criteria: I wanted a multi-touch screen, adequate speed on the web, nice resolution, the ability to download AMAZON books (I prefer both their prices and selection), and an ability to download some APPs.
After the Pandigital and Viewsonic exeriences, I then looked at many tablets between $150 - $200 (I personally can't justify spending $500+ on a tablet). The only tablet I could find that met my criteria on such a budget was the Kindle Fire, but at such a low price, I didn't have high hopes for it either. I decided that if it wasn't what I wanted, I would be returning it and then saving for a Samsung Galaxy or IPad.
But, the Kindle Fire has more than met my expectations! This is a keeper.
