    Review For: Amazon Kindle DX 4GB, 3G (AT&T), 9.7in - White

    So I have now had my Kindle DX in my possession for almost a week since receiving it from my eBay seller. I have been tempted to buy an ereader for awhile simply so I can keep the books I read and am interested in reading stored either on the device or my computer and not take up even more shelf space in my house (The bookshelves in my man cave are completely full as it is). Another lure for an ereader is the reduction in cost of books.

    So why the Kindle DX? I considered buying an iPad, but couldn't think of any other use that I had for it other than for reading books and comic books on, plus I already have an iPhone. I also considered the Nook, because it's color, but ended up deciding on a Kindle because all I really need an ereader for is books and I wanted to keep things simple. The Kindle has a very long battery life and the display is just like looking at a page from a book. I also wanted the DX as opposed to the smaller models because I wanted the book-sized display. A friend of mine has the smaller model and it's cool to be able to slip it in your back pocket and go, but the screen is awfully small and I like to feel like I'm reading a page's worth of material per screen (I know, I'm weird).

    So how does my experience break down? The Kindle is very simple to use, I hooked it up to my computer and started uploading books to my Kindle without even consulting the instructions. Reading from it is very comfortable for me--as I said, the screen is just like looking at a book page--and I haven't walked away from it feeling as if my eyes have been strained. Navigating and organizing my books was very easy, I have had no problems with actually using the device.

    So what are the downsides? My only really negative comments are more about minor annoyances that aren't even necessarily function-related. Overall the Kindle seems a little laggy. When I hold down the directional pad to scroll down the screen, the cursor will appear on every line between where I began and where I end my scrolling for a second or two before they clear away to settle where I ended scrolling. I just looks like when a computer lags and things get stuck for a second. It only takes another second for it to go away, but it's kind of annoying to see that because it's hard to know where exactly your cursor is. My other main annoyance is the keyboard at the bottom. It's spaced out almost too widely to type texting-style with your thumbs, but still too close together to type keyboard-style, so anytime you have to type something (like a collection name when organizing your books) takes longer than usual. The good thing is that you don't really have to do alot of typing on it unless you're shopping for a book or organizing your books into collections, so it's not a deal breaker.

    Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase, I feel it was money well spent and has made reading and book-buying much more convenient for me. Recommended!

    Great Device.

    I recently purchased my first ebook reader and I chose the Kindle DX. It holds 3500 books and will also hold pdf files.The biggest pluses of this product for me were 1. Big Screen and I can change ANY book to a larger font size, no squinting. 2. Selection of over 300,000 books at a discount because they are ebooks. I save about $15.00 on every new release. 3, No monthly fees and I can connect to the Amazon bookstore anywhere in the United States. It takes 30 seconds to download a book. It also gives me access to the internet for wikipedia and other study sites. 4. It has a built in dictionary that you do not have to leave the page you are on to use, you can also make highlights and bookmarks. 5. It stays charged for weeks ( If you do not have the internet on.)
    6. The screen is very easy on the eyes, it is like reading from a book and not a computer screen.

    The only down side is I travel for a living and I have to turn it off on a plane until we hit 10,000.00 feet. Other than that it is so easy to bring your books with you without wasting space.

    It is like an Ipod for books. If you read alot this device will save you money ( tons of free classics out there.) and will end up paying for itself.

    Good buy, slow delivery though, partly my fault

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Good stuff, slow, but best ebook on market. Used ones are just like new. Some issues about not being able to read doc files.
    Pdf images cant be enlarged.

    The KINDLE DX works for me!

    I read a lot of books and travel frequently. What I love about the KINDLE DX is it lightens my load considerably and results in more in-depth reading. I can easily highlight passages for work and quickly pick up right where I left off. Also, my husband & I share what we download leading to more quality time together. The KINDLE is pretty easy to navigate and figure out how to operate. It still amazes me that I can access a book through the whispernet process in seconds. Therefore, it is true freedom to carry around all of my books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, pdf's in one device. Plus, when we no longer feel like looking at it, it can read to us. How great is that? Overall, I think everyone who gets a KINDLE DX will have an enjoyable experience with it. I definitely recommend getting one.

    Amazon Kindle DX lives up to its advertising!

    Although somewhat pricey, this "luxury item" to me is worth the expenditure. If you're a reader, it's a terrific invention whereby you can carry around literally thousands of books and have access to them all at one time! The DX is a bit larger than its smaller predecessor so I wouldn't recommend it for smaller adults or school-age children. High schoolers and college kids, no problem.

    I love the ability to instantly and effortlessly look up a word's meaning. I love the ability to download certain books COMPLETELY FOR FREE, having them become part of my library and read something that I wouldn't have ordinarily read...such as "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin."

    The down side is that reading becomes even more addictive when using a Kindle DX and I now "have" to carry it with me constantly.

    Once you learn how to work the thing comfortably (I've had mine for about 3 weeks and am on my fourth book), you'll probably agree with me that you'll say to yourself, "how did I live without it?" Happy reading.
