1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle 4, 24 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi (Previous Generation - 5th) (Electronics)
I recieved my Kindle as a birthday gift and though initialy suspicious of "new technology" I quickly grew very enthusiastic about my Kindle. Indeed I grudgingly admitted that it really did do what it said on the box....Delighted ! However, One fine day, mid novel my Kindle froze and nothing would persuade it to continue. A solution was saught online and my mild annoyance rapidly succumbed to outright despair when it became apparent that this was a regular event with many other Kindle users reporting the same thing.... Hey ho a quick call to Amazon should resolve this ......not a bit of it " Very sorry sir you guarentee has JUST run out.....But we'll sell you one cheap for £69.00". Begining to get the picure ? Well a rapid return to our online community revealed a plethora of similar (read "identical")complaints even down to the offer to be a mug and buy another of what is now outdated technology at a "reduced" rate.
In summary, Great when it works but when it fails Amazon show no interest and your Kindle becomes useful only as landfill.
Hope this helps !
