I have my kindle fire for just over 12 months now, the first one I had lasted just under a month before something went wrong with the WiFi connection and it has to be sent back- amazon were brilliant at the ex- change and I had my replacement the day after talking to them, but it was still disappointing to have had to go through that experience.
My replacement has not suffered the same fate I am pleased to say and I use it for hours each day, surfing the net, reading books, playing games etc.
I have found lately that the silk browser has been locking up and closing and slowing to an absolute crawl each evening sometimes this is solved by clearing the cookies and switching off and on ( that old favourite!) But not always.
This is incredibly frustrating as I sit here watching the ipads and nexus that my family members have surfing away with no problems what so ever .
I run an anti virus which tells me all is well and it seems to be late evening that this problem raises its ugly head so I am at a loss.as to what it is playing at ( funnily enough it seems to be particularly prone to closing unexpectedly when shopping on Amazon, trying to look at product details, which is costing them money in lost business!!!)
I still love it dearly though and when things run smoothly it is phenomenal, but like everything it is when it is not doing as it should that I notice it more.
I love the nice blog, bright screen that makes things nice and clear ( so good I very often use with without my glasses- it really is that good)
I love the capabilities of it from movies to email and the thousands of books I can have in my bag when I have this with me, I would recommend this to others but silk is not the best browser and it would be better if it used a better one because the problems I have encountered would be solved.

In a lot of ways it confirms what I read about it being an Amazon controlled and restricted device, and so I am finding it pretty limiting and lacking in many ways, and perhaps more so than I expected.

If you are looking for a full and free Android tablet do not choose this. Probably fine as a family tablet but not for the serious....'I want to do the latest and anything possible' type of user.

Generally apps are limited and older versions, and I suspect you might wait a long while for latest versions, unlike my Android phone which is constantly updating.

Example; I bought it because I wanted to use Spotify largely as an occasional 'free' user. I find the version on here is over a year old and only works if you have a Spotify premium account. On a more annoying level is the lack of Flash Player support in the browser that I keep coming up against.

If you want to shop and do basic browsing and apps it's probably fine. If you are a Lovefilm Instant subscriber (as I am) it's a decent device with the 8.9" screen, but it definitely has limitations that most might find annoying.

I bought this for my mother as a present. She was used to the 7" device and likes it, finding the silk system easy to navigate.
I set it up for her and it seems an ok device, but as a user of all different tablets, have to say it is just not in the same league as the iPad Mini or the Nexus tablets.
My money would be on one of those devices, IF you are new to tablets or if you are fed up of the limitations of the Fire.

The carousel just collects clutter and there is no easy way to tidy it up.
You cannot sensibly personalize the Kindle. i.e. You cannot select wallpaper / themes etc.
There is far too much Amazon advertising and it is easy to accidentally buy stuff from Amazon.
It is quite slow to operate.
The book reader is good, but is aimed at novels; I have not yet found a non fiction book available that I would like to read.
The music player does not integrate fully. If you are listening to music in the background, there are no quick music controls especially once the screen has gone to sleep.
It is not supplied with a charger and you cannot charge it from a computers USB port.
Otherwise I like it.

I would give it a 5 star if I could get all the apps working as I get on android. I can't get youtube to work properly on this.

I purchased this from the US before the UK version came out and I'm glad I opted for the larger 8.9 inch version than the smaller 7 inch Fire HD as there is a marked increase in resolution and screen real estate (this is better than full 1080 HD). I also have an iPad 4 and this review is based on a comparison of the two tablets as I believe they are the top two (Samsung Tab would be number 3) in the market.

Size and build quality: I like that this is slightly smaller than the iPad and most importantly it weighs quite a bit less, helping you to hold it with one hand (not for too long though). Obviously the screen is the most important aspect and being made of glass you will always worry about it breaking on a fall (get a case!) but it looks well put together and nothing feels as if it is made from cheap plastic/other materials. Has a solid feel when you pick it up but definitely not as heavy and bulky as the iPad (Kindle feels thinner). Kindle wins on this one.

Display: Almost perfect colour reproduction, text clarity and video. You will not notice anything deficient in the display, it performs excellently with everything thrown at it. I like to read books at night in white font on a dark background and then switch to the browser with dark text and white background and have never had any issues when making the switch instantly. Likewise watching movies, even something like 'The Dark Knight' which has very dark scenes was perfectly well reproduced with no discernible difference from a TV (provided you use the HD version of a movie). As there is a built-in mini HDMI port you can connect the Kindle to a TV and share what is on the screen or play a video which is very handy.
