  • Great, except for the screen.
    Reviewed by Arlis - August 9, 2020

    If you’re like me, you were probably wondering if the difference between 167 ppi and 300 ppi would be noticeable. It is, very much so. Get the paper white. When I purchased this kindle, it was perfect, and I loved it immediately. However, when I got about a quarter of the way through my first book, I was finding the resolution was making me nauseous. It feels like you’re trying to read without glasses, and I don’t even have glasses. The resolution is not equal through the screen. Some parts of the screen always had laser-print accuracy, while the rest was sometimes so blurry I couldn’t read the word without squinting. The front lighting also isn’t the greatest, I had a nice shadowy bar at the top of my screen, and four big bubbles of light at the bottom. Loading my personally downloaded Ebooks onto the kindle was easy as pie though.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Great Simple eReader
    Verified BuyerReviewed by D480 - January 8, 2022

    I purchased my kindle on sale and I love it. It’s small, lightweight, portable, and comfortable to hold for long reading sessions. I really wanted an e-reader but didn’t want to spend $140+ on the paperwhite. While this one isn’t waterproof, I don’t anticipate reading in the rain or bath. One downside is that the backlight doesn’t have an option to adjust the warmth, so reading in low light sometimes isn’t the best experience. This version also doesn’t have a dark mode option to invert the text and background color. Those details aside, I really like this product. Hopefully in a few years the baseline kindle model adds warmth to its backlight.

  • Good replacement at a decent price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by yukon - June 4, 2021

    This was a replacement for an old Gen 3 kindle that finally died. This was the cheapest one I could find and it was a good buy. Several changes to get used to but I like the lite color of the screen that works in dark areas. There are more font choices and sizes for the font. The only thing that is kind of a pain is the off button. You have to hold down the power button and then confirm that you want to turn it off by touching the screen. I would recommend this for someone who is only interested in reading books and not trying to surf the web. It take a little getting used as do most things that are a replacement after 15 years.

  • Good product, serves it purpose
    Reviewed by Bavz - May 28, 2020

    This product is as advertised on paper. Nothing more nothing less. 8 GB is plenty for storing books each book i had was only 300Kb or less. Led works as expected to read in the dark. In the sunlight I am happy with the product and i only use it for reading books.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great purchase
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Recommend - October 15, 2021

    I bought this kindle because I wanted to be able to read books without distractions. I absolutely love my kindle! It’s so easy to use and so portable. Very very long battery life and I don’t even have to use my phone battery. I like how I can also download books to read offline. Additionally, I really really like the backlight!!! I would definitely recommend!!!!
