5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased I finally took the plunge with a Kindle!!, 18 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi (Previous Generation - 5th) (Electronics)
I've considsered a Kindle (or similar) e-reader for a while, and after a bit of research decided on the basic Kindle - the price is attractive and I felt it unnecessary to go for the touch (fingerprints!!) or light (I bought a case with integrated light and it is fine) versions. So far (bought just before Xmas), I've had no problems and am impressed by the Kindle. It activated straight away, I've downloaded about 30 e-books - some paid for, others free - all of which transfered almost immediately (I used my PC to access the Amazon store, rather than downloading via the Kindle itself, so cannot comment on that aspect). In use the Kindle is great - quick page turns using the side buttons and good "visibility" even in low-ish light, but I bought a case with integrated light to use in bed and its very effective. I've not done a great deal else with it, although I have accessed the web functionality which is surprisingly adequate, although using the navigation buttons is a bit "clunky", which is where I would think the touch version may perform better.
