Great product, great value for the price.
I bought this product for my wife, who's absolutely satisfied with the product.
She's using it on daily basis.
The best additional feature for her is text to voice , with i might say, very decent voice synthesizer, unlike on the other similar products.
Battery life is very similar as on the specs sheet, which makes the reader ideal companion
for the very long use without the need for charger.
The only thing that needs just a little time to get used to is the E-Ink screen refresh time -
certainly not the cavity, but having comparing it to my Apple Ipad there is of course noticable difference
(again, these products are not to be compared, because of the different hardware).
Text marking features are usable, experimental web browser is as it says (opens basic html pages,
advanced things like flash and so arent supported).
Text typing on virtual keyboard is similar like on the most touchscreen smartphones,
but touchpen is very welcomed here (i bought it on ebay for one us dollar), it helps alot
to pinpoint those tiny letter slots .
Overall, very good product for reading text books / material with addition of text marking (like on real books) and text to speech feature which is very usable.
Good choice for people who want the benefit of very low power consumption of current E-Ink screen technology,
but maybe not so good choice for people who want color touchscreen device with fast response.Read full review

The perfect gift for any age!
Oh my!!! I bought one for my adult daughter who has two children and not much time to read, with audio books, buying online instead of going to the store and the awesome features I couldn't of bought a better gift. Truly a gift that will be loved for years. Everyday she's telling me other things that it can do. Can't wait till Christmas to give another one that I bought to my Neice that's leaving next fall for college. Text books can be bought on the Kindle. You can highlight and even write notes in the margins. Not to mention not having to carry those heavy books. Awesome product....well worth the money!

with updated software works well
PDF and MOBI formats work great...converted epub or other to MOBI don't work well (like using Calibre to change format)
Memory can be slow to load book menu (I have 200+ books)...but after I updated to latest software and the RESET to factory,it reset to factory UPDATED version with latest software and worked much better
Battery life good
Starter cord broke first day and left turn signal won't blink otherwise for a basic book reader it's great !

The Kindle Touch is a fantastic product with only one caveat
The Kindle Touch has had some outstanding reviews, deservedly so in my opinion as I've been the happy owner of one since Christmas (acquired through eBay)and have read several books already using this device.
My family argued as to why I would need it, given I've been reading books on my iPad for the past two years and on other pocket PC devices earlier than that. Simply put, this is a better reading experience. It is smaller, light weight and easy to read in normal (and outside) light. I also use a clip on light for reading at night - works well with the right one. In addition, it is simply to add books to your device, simply drag and drop mobi format books using whatever file manager you have on your PC/Mac.
I commute daily and read when I do, thus this is the perfect device. I would only recommend it for reading 'paperbacks', the iPad is still a significantly better device for consuming news via the web or apps, as well as reading magazines (pdf's). The Kindle can browse the web, but I'd only use it as a last resort.
Overall it is a great device, but with one caveat. Amazon will only sell this device in North America, thus if you want one, the best avenue to buy it is through eBay. This also goes for all the specific accessories that are purpose made for it and this is a right pain as some of the best ones can't or are difficult to find other than on Amazon. The Amazon branded leather case (whilst pricey) is outstanding, but had to be acquired through even more roundabout ways.Read full review

First time Kindle
By all the means, this is a great product. It's not a tablet, it's not a smartphone, it is a completely different things, its a Kindle.
Been myself a person who travels a lot, and having plenty time to work and to little to enjoy, I found that I can select and read an entire book, learn about my hobbies and specialized reading interests, with out depending of having an electric outlet near. The Kindle allows me that, having a lot to read, as if I had a full pack of books on my backpack, all in one place, and with WiFi to access to the web when I need it, as if it was a tablet or smartphone.
The Pros I have found using it:
1) Small, easy to carry
2) Good storage capacity, taking into account that we will carry text instead of heavy media files
3) Easy to use, more simple than a tablet, with touchscreen, and simplified characteristics
4) Good browser, something I didn't expected in a ebook reader, I used it to reserve hotels and to check-in a couple of flights
5) Great battery duration, I charged it almost 1 month ago, using not much wifi, but reading a lot, still has half charge.
1) Small screen. The full potential of this eink technology will be when we can use it as a full newspaper reader, or web-based news reader, lets say, a A4 size would be the summum
2) Not full support of PDF. I read a lot of books in PDF, but the browser does not allows me to download this format. To read PDFs with images, the screen becomes a little tricky to handle, zooming and passing pages when not required.
3) Browser not fully developed, still as an experimental app. Note that as a ereader, having a browser is just a bonus point.
4) Being a Linux based software, Amazon arranged to lock all the potential of a (grey screen) tablet (I think its just me)
5) It could have simple apps (Checklists for example)
Finalizing, in a time where everything has to be charged each several hours, I was expecting a ereader (almost a Casio calculator) but I received a tablet (it is), with a long lasting battery, I like to think that its a PDA with a battery duration of months.
It makes one think if making things simpler, its better, we can loss some apps and have a great tool. Right now Im using it as a motorcycle shop manual to learn how to adjust the valves of my motorcycle (on a Zip bag obviously).Read full review
