Let me guess: you love books, but you’re not sure you want to get a kindle because you love the feel of books, right?

I have had 4 other Kindle’s prior to this one. This one is BY FAR my favorite. It is so easy to use, it is super light, and makes a book worm like me able to read with no effort at all!

Outstanding E-Reader: Worthwhile Upgrade

Recently retired my well-used Kindle Keyboard for the Paperwhite, as I was looking forward to getting one with a backlit screen. Overall, this is easily the best e-reader I’ve had the pleasure of using. It’s just the right size (and feels less bulky than my Keyboard), the interface is faster, the text more vibrant, and the adjustable backlight is exceptionally convenient for all lighting conditions. Here are a few thoughts for those that prefer lists:

Amazon help pages actually tell you that you can’t use borrowed library e-books with the children’s FreeTime feature that let’s you track the amount of time they read each day (see attached image). In fact, even some customer service representatives tell you it can’t be done.

I purchased two brand new Paperwhite 300dpi units and, as soon as began the setup, I noticed a difference in color between the two devices. One had the correct color balance – a white background with perfect contrast and the other with a yellow background with murky contrast. The device with the yellow background also had an additional issue whereby the page filled with black screen artifacts when ‘turning’ the page, which was distracting. Also, screen sensitivity on the returned unit was problematic. I called Amazon and they offered to send a replacement unit. The replacement is slightly less yellow than the one I returned, but it is absolutely still way more yellow than white. Thankfully, it does not exhibit the same black screen artifacts when ‘turning’ pages and screen sensitivity is normal. I’ve included a picture of the Paperwhite with the correct white background (on left) and the new replacement Paperbeige (on right). You be the judge.

I am waiting for my third replacement. First one had a defect on lighting, second one shown on picture is very yellow. Frustrated, I went to Bestbuy to view a standard one, and there was so much difference in contrast. Until then I wasn’t sure if I was being too sensitive and even felt bad asking for a third replacement. Since Amazon wasn’t interested in looking at my photos to see what exactly is wrong with my device, I am posting here. The one with the alarm is one at bestbuy, same light level, same room, and I even switched left and right to be fair in lighting condition. If the third one I receive is still not normal, I will be very disappointed.
