The paper itself has the known Zeit quality. Brilliant in depth newsletter with plenty to read.
The kindle version is nicely formatted but as it is a text only version lacks some crucial images, especially in the magazine section.
Check on their website for deals and student discount though...

5.0 out of 5 stars Zum Lesen ausgezeichnet 10 April 2011
By Thornthrop - Published on
Wem es primär ums Lesen geht kann ich die Kindle-Edition uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Es ist einfach unglaublich komfortabel auf diese Weise "Die Zeit" zu LESEN. Man hält ein Taschenbuch mit den Texten der Zeit in der Hand. Die Navigation innerhalb einer Ausgabe ist vorbildlich und sehr ergonomisch gelöst (insbesondere im Vergleich zu den misslungenen iOS-Apps). Man blättert wie in einem Buch innerhalb eines Artikels und am Ende beginnt gleich der nächste. Bei eventuellem Missfallen oder Desinteresse gelangt man instantan per Steuerkreuz zum nächsten oder vorherigen Artikel. Das Fehlen jeglicher Social-Media Anbindung erleichtert weiterhin das Lesen.

Hier noch einmal, was man bekommt und was nicht:
- Alle Texte der Zeit in ausgezeichnet lesbarer Form.
- Die meisten Texte des Zeit-Magazins, erfreulicherweise die Kolumnen (z.B. Martenstein), merkwürdigerweise den Text der Deutschlandkarte ohne Karte, leider nicht "Ich habe einen Traum", die Rätsel oder die Schachkolumne.
- Keinerlei Bilder oder Info-Grafiken

Preislich unterscheiden sich Digital-Abo und Kindle-Abo derzeit kaum. Man hat also die Wahl zwischen Lieferkomfort per Whispernet oder manuellem Download + Audio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best weekly German newspaper you can buy for money 6 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Die Zeit (German pronunciation: [di' 'tsa't], literally "The Time" or "Times") is a German nationwide weekly newspaper, published in Hamburg, that is highly respected for its quality journalism. It is definitely the best German weekly newspaper you can get. With about 490,000 copies and a readership of above 2 million, it is the most widely read German weekly newspaper. DIE ZEIT provides detailed background information on the news you might already have read before in the daily press or caught on radio and television. Also DIE ZEIT covers topics that aren't breaking news anymore.

The general political direction is centrist. Conflicting opinions are printed for most of the main topics so you can draw your own conclusions. I like this much more, than most of the biased articles in left or right wing magazines. The articles are consistently well informed and well researched, the writing style is excellent. Therefore the paper is considered to be highbrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Endlich wieder die Zeit am Wochenende 12 Jun. 2011
By Lebenslust - Published on
Seit ich meinen Kindle habe, habe ich darauf gewartet, endlich DIE ZEIT auf dem Gerät lesen zu können. Seit ein paar Monaten ist das jetzt möglich.
Es fehlen zwar die Bilder und die Rätselseiten aus dem Zeitmagazin, aber ansonsten ist die Kindle-Ausgabe gut gemacht und lässt sich hervorragend lesen. Der Preis für das Monatsabo ist günstiger als für die Printversion, was ich angemessen finde.

Bilder und Rätselseiten hole ich mir aus der Online-Version und genieße es, endlich wieder einen Sonntagmorgen mit Zeit-Lesen vertrödeln zu können.
Und zum Lesen im Bett oder am Strand ist die Kindle-Version meiner Meinung nach unschlagbar.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a Zeit addict. On Kindle its genius 30 Nov. 2013
By Bernd H Thiessen - Published on
Verified Purchase
I read DIE ZEIT for 10 years now and to have it on Kindle was a revolution since that format allows you to read it from A-Z and furthermore on time outside Gernany.
DIE ZEIT is unique and living in the US and the UK I can say there is not any one newspaper or magazine that comes close to its level of journalism - its in a class of its own. It has a very broad spectrum of topics [politics, science, economics, literature, children, travel]. Besides their journalists also politician, writers, scientists, celebrities and their own readers write articles. Die Zeit is very independent, not political/socially opinionated. I find more than 80% of articles extremely well written, deeply analyzed, highly sophisticated and innovative. I also find it astonishing that die Zeit is surviving - even increasing volume - in times where many papers struggle and where we are flooded by cheap superficial online journalism and 'junk - media'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than Kindle subscription on 1 Dec. 2011
By DAS - Published on
This is by far the cheapest way of reading Die Zeit, Germany's leading liberal/libertarian weekly. Even the Kindle subscription on Germany's Amazon site is more expensive. The content is formatted carefully and is fairly complete, compared to the print edition, which sells for $270/year or $22.5/month. Given the in-depth nature of coverage and the bargain price tag, I don't mind the absence of photographs etc. on the Kindle edition too much.

Navigation on the Kindle 3 (or Kindle Keyboard, as they call it now) is excellent and very efficient. On the DX (which Amazon never upgraded to the new Kindle OS) navigation is a bit more cumbersome, but ok. Unfortunately, you cannot have Die Zeit delivered to Kindle readers on Android tablets or even the new Kindle Fire, which is somewhat frustrating.

Update (December 17, 2011): The Kindle version of Die Zeit now works on the Kindle Reader for Android tablets and on the Kindle Fire, both as one-time download and as a recurring automatic download for subscriptions.
