Short lived - good until it conked!
on 22 October 2015
I received one of these as a birthday present a few months ago. Initially I was delighted and very pleased with my device, which had a great screen resolution and speedy internet access. Recently a friend had warned me of troubles he'd had with his own model (same as mine)which had stopped working just outside warranty, but I'd dismissed this as just bad luck, when the same thing happened to me today (-luckily mine is still in warranty! ). Having powered it off I switched it back on about an hour later - except the device wouldn't come back on. Just a blank screen. Despite attempts to re-boot and charge the battery plus a phone session with an Amazon Customer Service rep - it looks like after only 7 months it's a deceased Kindle Fire HD! Will I be purchasing another one of these? No I don't think so, given that my case isn't the only example of total Kindle Fire device failure that I am currently aware of. Be warned - buy this model at your own risk!! Very disappointing 😠
