5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 18 Mar 2014
Noise cancelling works with humming type noise (so probably good on an aircraft), does not block irregular noise like talking (which is not necessarily a bad thing).
Sound quality okay, well made, good case and accessories, noise cancelling boosts volume considerably. Comfortable and look okay.
If left lost, at his price will not spoil a holiday.

11 year old daughter wowed audience at musical afternoon with Tritsch Tratsch Polka. She has 2/3 years experience.

Bought book on this piece, which friend had an old sheet of by author. House now lightened with echoes of Moonlight Sonata.

Simplified music, not too easy, results sound good.

Cannot be filled in. Basically a set of images - which do not fit on the screen!

Free, but time wasting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough, 13 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike many reviews, I have no issue with the screen quality - lovely, in fact, with the light right down. (Although it would be better still if the light could be turned completetly off).
The reasons I am sticking to real books, and using a tablet for news items:

- Kindle could not read many of my unprotected mobi files. The device is deliberately crippled as it is, unable to read epubs, so this was a deal breaker.
- Not possible to use any 3rd party software to organise collections due to a hidden process on the touch Kindles. Sorry, life is too short to faff around on the device doing this. Could be reading!
- The Experimental Browser would better be described as Rubbish Browser. Does not work on simple hyperlinks, crashes, unresponsive. Better not to include until sorted rather than raise expectations. My tiny Nokia key phone navigates better than this thing.
- Screen too small, although I accept that is personal. Still, bigger size could be offered, give the punter a choice. If not, well plenty of tablets out there.

Simple to fix things ... maybe in a couple of years.

Fitted to my son's bike. Broke on first trip home from school, leaving him in the dark vulnerable to being knocked down. Should not be sold!
