Great eBook for PDF documents
I bought the Kindle DX for reading PDFs. The main options I looking for is (1) large screen and (2) long battery life. So what about DX? Pros: 1. Excellent eInc display. It is monochrome, but it is much better than TFT displays. I can read it in many hours like ordinal paper books. 2. Excellent battery life time. I bought previously used device. After full charge it works 2-3 weeks. Cons: 1. It is relatively heavy. The Kindle DX in original Amazon leather case weights about 800g. 2. Price. Kindle 3 is about 3 times cheaper than Kindle DX! So in my opinion Kindle DX is best device if you need to read PDF documents in original formatting. In other case Kindle 3 looks better.

The DX is user-friendly, has a large screen, and I can load my own files.
After carefully comparing all the similar devices out there I chose the Kindle DX for a variety of reasons. It is large. It has a large screen. It is simple to operate. I can load books from amazon. I can load my own PDF files. The display is easy on the eyes. And I didn't mind shopping for a nice pre-owned example. I submitted bids on several DXs before buying the one I now have. I expected it to be a good value for the costs involved. It is that. I am pleased.

Good buy, slow delivery though, partly my fault
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. 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.Read full review

Wonderful e-reader at a size that makes electronic reading comfortable!
Fabulous e-reader!!!! Large screen for the over 50 crowd :-) Also the ability to change the font size for more comfortable reading. E-ink is easy to read. I'm looking forward to eliminating a great deal of physical books in my home library. It will be nice to free up the wall space. I'm still in awe over the face that thousands of books can be toted around wherever I go. I would hope the design team at Amazon would see their way to making a keyboard with a layout more like a computer keyboard. It would make the wireless function and interaction with the internet a bit easier. Overall it's a great thing!

The Kindle DX, an excellent reading device.
I purchased one for my wife during Christmas. She reads a lot of books and can buy them for almost nothing. I was a little apprehensive about buying the Kindle DX but got it anyway. She absolutly loves it and makes me feel good that I bought it for her. The print can be sized to what is comfortable for the reader. She downloads mostly free reading material, which is a big plus. I would like to see a better varity of magazines with color. Overall it is a nice piece of equipment.
