    I was just sitting here thinking why not write a review on my kindle. Personally I love it. I received it for Christmas. I personally love it due to being able to do everything I want to do just as on my laptop, I think the only thing you cant do is play the actual games on Facebook directly from the website. “{Like farmville, you can only play the express mode} That is the only thing that the iPod has over this item. This is a great size, not to big, not to small, perfect. I can also save files to my kindle from my college and access them from my app “officesuite”. I have noticed that there is a camera but, you have to upload a camera app in order to use the camera. Also there is no option to reverse the camera, such as front view or back view. There is only a front view, not something to easy to use. IN other words, you can only use the tablet holding the screen towards the object and take pics, not from the back of the tablet. Excellent sound, but you cant upload wallpapers, there is no option to change a wallpaper, screensaver or anything. I am still searching to be able to change the fonts. Excellent picture, excellent video, and like I said the sound is great. Reading a book is just wonderful, you can dim the screen if needed. There are anti virus’s you can upload to protect your kindle, a good one is “lookout”. You will receive notifications just like a phone. You can upload skype, and textplus to keep in contact with friends, plus all social sites. You can shop, play games, read books, play music, and upload music, watch video’s, read newspapers, magazines, surf the web, and go into websites just like your laptop would, upload photos, documents, and they will send cute little offers if you want to grab them up. Lock screen, password protected. There are also beautiful kindle covers, cute little pens, screencovers.

    I bought this for my wife, because it was what she wanted for her birthday. It has very good graphics, is quick and the sound is good for it’s size. For most people the kindle HD is all you could ask for, but for myself I would not buy it because you have to put up with all the Amazon crap. Amazon made this unit as a marketing tool for their products and works very hard at restricting you from getting outside their circle. And with that issue and you can not upgrade or extend memory, it has it’s limitations. Having said all that, it is a good unit if you want to live within the Amazon Community and understand the limitations. My problem is I don’t like limitations and restrictions. If you understand this and want a good reliable tablet, than I would recommend the one. One other thing I hate is paying someone to get rid of add as you do with this unit, $15.00 – That is crazy.

    I have had my eye on the Kindle Fire for a couple of years now. I finally broke down and bought the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ primarily as an entertainment source for my 5 y/o during 600 mile trips to see family several times a year. I have to say that other than a less-than-stellar battery life, I love this thing! Now, I am old enough that I was not raised on gadgets, so I don’t need the latest and greatest device. However, I think that this tablet is equipped to do everything that you want, from watching HD videos from the cloud or downloaded to the device, to silly gaming apps, to emails, to reading e-books. It’s a bit heavier than I was prepared for, but I had no idea what to expect, either. The screen size on the 8.9″ is perfect. I do wish that there was some ability to customize the look and arrangement of the on-screen items. I would give this 5 stars, but that would be reserved for when I can comment on the durability and the ease of fixing any issues that may crop up. Overall, I think Amazon has a great little AFFORDABLE tablet here.

    I ordered the Fire HD 8 refurbished with some reservation but am totally happy with the product. Arrived with over 60% battery charge, looks like new, booted right up, downloaded existing updates, loaded email connections with no problem and is performing without issue.

    After having an iPad mini for the past four years, I was keen on trying a less expensive tablet. My husband has a Kindle Fire and is pleased, so I decided to give the Amazon tablet a try.From the moment I unboxed the tablet, I was skeptical. First, there was a blemish on the touch screen. Strike one. Next, the previous owner’s Washington Post subscription was still active on the tablet, so I had to delete it off of the device and the cloud. Second, I could not play a game without being told that I had insufficient storage. Finally, the battery drained within an hour, even after a full night of charging.Suffice to say, I have boxed the tablet up, and it was sent back to Amazon today.

    Refurbished – This appears to be official Amazon refurbished, not a third party refurbish. That means it looks and function’s like new with the official accessories that come with a new device. If the box didn’t say refurbished, I wouldn’t have known!Pros1.) Price – If you catch this on sale, it’s less expensive than a 7 Inch fire! Not on sale, it’s less expensive than most generic tablets. Price is wonderful2.) Screen – Bright and Vibrant! Great for media and movies.3.) Easy setup – Was up and running in under 5 minutes, that includes the updates! Like previous fire tablets, setup was a breeze!4.) Great for Amazon content!5.) Durable – Yes it’s made of plastic but that’s also what makes it so durable! The thin aluminum of iPads bends. The glass back on other tablets break. And so on! I’ve never broke a fire tablet and I’ve had plenty! I’m hard on them and beat them up, but don’t break. I replace when they get pretty beat up because they are so inexpensive6.) Works well with Hulu, YouTube, Netflix, HBO and plenty of other media apps7.) Great for reading magazines!8.) Good battery life!Cons1.) Sluggish – These have always been a little sluggish but keep in mind their price. Yes, I’d love to replace my old HDX tablet, but I don’t see that happening.. Amazon has found a sweet spot with these inexpensive tabletsTips1.) Google Play – While Google Play store isn’t installed, it can be.. even better, there are other third party app stores that install even easier. No rooting or advanced setup required! One example of a third lartyt store is apkpure. Works great!2.) Ads can be turned off for a small fee. They however don’t bother meOverall – very happy with this tablet and no regrets buying it refurbished! It works well and is essentially brand new!
