I WAS AMAZED AT THE BUILD QUALITY OF THIS DEVICE IT IS THE BEST I HAVE SEEN ON ANY TABLET. EVERYTHING IS ATTENTION TO DETAIL EVEN DOWN TO THE BUTTONS THAT ARE SO FLUSH WITH THE DEVICE THAT YOU CAN HARDLY SEE THEM. INTERNET BROWSING IS FLAWLESS AND IS AS GOOD AS MY SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 10.1 THE SOUND FROM THE DOLBY SURROUND SOUND SPEAKERS IS THE BEST I HAVE HEARD ON ANY TABLET AND THAT INCLUDES THE BIG BRAND NAMES. I GOT THE KINDLE FIRE HD 7 FOR MUSIC DOWNLOADS AND INTERNET BROWSING AND I AM AMAZED AT HOW THIS DEVICE DOES EVEYTHING I NEED IT FOR. THE PRICE IS JUST ABOUT RIGHT TOO AT £200. OF COURSE IT IS NOT AN APPLE IPAD BUT AT THIS PRICE THE KINDLE FIRE HD 7 IS FOR ME JUST AS GOOD NOT IF BETTER IN BUILD QUALITY AND SOUND. AMAZING PRODUCT. UPDATE 8TH OF JANUARY 2013 I HAVE SOLD MY AMAZON KINDLE FIRE HD 7 BECAUSE OF THE POOR BATTERY LIFE. EVEN WITH THE WI-FI OFF IT STILL WAS NOT UP TO MUCH. WHAT A SHAME BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A SUPERB TABLET ONLY LET DOWN BY THE BATTERY LIFE. WHAT A SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I resisted buying a Kindle for some time because I object to being "locked in" to a system, whether its Apple or Amazon, but after a couple of unfortunate experiences with cheaper Chinese made tablets, I decided to "bite the bullet" and buy a Kindle Fire HD. I am very glad I did! First of all when you pick it up it is obvious that this is a quality, well made product. When you get into it there are a lot of apps available from Amazon - admittedly there are a number of important ones which are missing from the Store, but with a bit of tweaking,(and research on Google) it is possible to install apps from other sources; although it has to be said, Google Play are very unhelpful on that score. You can also buy and download books from other sources too, but, to be honest, Amazon are pretty much unbeatable when it comes to book selection and price, anyway! If Amazon had made all this a bit easier I would have given 5 stars for what is a great little tablet at a great price! Oh, and the battery life is brilliant too, although avoid leaving it on WiFi for any length of time as this does drain it much faster. But all in all, I love it!

I love all things apple and hate PC's so I was very surprised to discover how user friendly the kindle fire is, it took a couple of days before I got the hang of it. But now it's a doddle. I bought it mainly as an e reader and have discovered other benefits that I hadn't even thought about. Firstly I am loving the LoveFilm (1 months free trial,) and will renew my subscription when the free trial period is finished. Although I use iplayer sometimes on my iMac to catch up with a missed programme, I hadn't thought how nice it would be to catch up with all sorts of TV programmes that are no longer available.
I am watching films on my kindle (In bed using headphones whilst husband watches footy) on my macbook pro (In the lounge whilst husband watching footy) And on my iMac in the study. Another surprise was being able to access all my emails and reply to them from my kindle fire. Then I tried skype and was able to see my daughter who lives at the other end of the country. (For some reason the video camera doesn't work on my MacBook Pro) I've almost forgotten about using the kindle for books! This kindle is going on holiday with me every time I go away. I'm so glad I didn't buy an iPad. I wouldn't recommend that you buy the kindle instead of a laptop but as an extra, very useful bit of kit the kindle fire hd is great. The on/off button is sometimes hard to find but that's nit picking. Love it to pieces.

I never really consider a kindle as my sister had one of the originals and I didn't like it. Then a colleague got a kindle fire and I wanted one. Since I got my kindle Fire I have been reading more and carry it with me.

The easy of getting the next book by clicking is brilliant, no need to bus or drive into town when the shops are open. No bulky book to fit into your bag, books are free or pay as little as 69p for a book. I read one one book that cost me 69p and I must admit it would not have been worth the £9.99 paperback version that I had been thinking of buying. I can turn a page with one finger which I never could with book, never lose my place because as soon as I open the cover the correct page is there.

I find it easier to see my mess on the kindle than my mobile and easier to type, due to bigger virtual keys. I have shown my in- laws and how the text can be enlarged, now they want one (they both in their 80s).

One of the best buys I have ever brought myself.

I toyed with the idea of buying a new Kindle Fire HD for over a month and, of course, read all the reviews here and on other websites. Many of these reviews put me off and I nearly ordered a Google Nexus 7. I am so happy now that I didn't. Somehow at one point I got a feeling that many of these negative reviews had been written by Apple groupies or by people who got so used to their iPads that all they want is just another iPad. And I decided to order a Kindle Fire HD. It arrived promptly, three days ago, already registered. I really can't understand why some people write that it shows American time or prices in dollars. During a setup process (which was fast, easy and very intuitive) I was asked about my timezone and, of course, the device was registered in the UK. The device itself is very nicely built and it is a pleasure to hold it, actually it has a much more pleasant feel than an iPad. An Amazon Kindle Fire HD cover, which came with it, fits nicely, it's comfortable to hold and has a pleasant feel. The screen is just FANTASTIC! Speakers are better than on any other tablet or even on a big desktop computer (I have an iMac). I never liked an iPad because of its size. It is just not convenient to carry it with you all the time, and to read it on public transport is about the same as to read a big art book. A 7 inch tablet is just perfect, you can carry it in your pocket. It was really easy to connect to WiFi and to sign on to my email accounts. I have two email accounts and both work really well on Kindle Fire HD. One of them is a Yahoo account, so first I used it through the Silk browser until I discovered a Yahoo Mail application at Amazon app store. But either with the browser or with this app it was fast and smooth for sending and receiving emails.Read more ›
