I have owned both Kindle 1 and Kindle 2, so I’m already committed to the basic idea: e-ink reading in a slim form factor with excellent connectivity to a large selection of books and subscriptions. I have come to rely on my Kindle experience, and it has seriously enhanced my reading.
Still Working Fine In Late 2017! Battery Battery Less Than New But Enough For My Use, Perfect In 2011 For My Technical Library
on November 27, 2017
By Stephanie Sullivan
I recently pulled out my old Kindle DX 9.7in. It still works fine! It’s my first kindle and it was so cool when I got it in 2011. I could carry my whole technical library with me in this (not so) small device. Why the big one? In that generation the drawings in technical books didn’t zoom and were often too small on the smaller kindle screens. Also most of the technical books were trade-book size which this more closely matches. In 2011 kindle and kindle like devices were more or less an afterthought for publishers, not a main target audience.
Love my DX but now

Love my DX but now, after almost 10 years of near daily usage and limping along on a fading battery for the past few the screen has died.
DX not quite all that–but has been improved a bit

This review was written back when the DX first came out and–as has been brought to my attention–needs to be updated a bit. I will indicate where things have changed for the better within the body of the review:
The large display is perfect for someone with impaired vision
on September 18, 2015
By Donald A. Ostrower
The large display is perfect for someone with impaired vision. Please resume making the DX. (all of the used DX models I have bought were defective and had to return) size reader. Unfortunate the keys on the keypad are too small to see. The ideal reader for those with impaired vision would be the Voyage with a 8+ inch screen. I would gladly pay $500 for such a device.
Best Large E-Ink Screen, but is It Worth It? Maybe…

To those who complain DX software being outdated, slow, no browser, etc.

You migth be right. But smart people have already done all the heavy lifting for you, years ago. You just need
Improved my life
on October 29, 2013
By Bruce Cuningham
I have an eye condition called epi-retinal membrane. It’s a layer of tissue at the back of my eye, which affects the central vision of that eye. It makes it very hard for me to read books and newspapers, one eye focuses and the other doesn’t. For the last couple of years I’ve been reading less and less, which is hard for a guy who used to read two or three books at a time, and who loved to get lost in a novel. My mother suffered from macular degeneration for many years, and I feared I was headed for magnifying glasses and special enlarging readers–like her.
The wonderful Kindle DX
on October 31, 2017
By Beverly Bloedorn
I would love to see this wonderful kindle DX come back on the market again. It is the size of a hardback book and the fact this is also a talking book is so great. I have two serious eye problems, when my eyes get tired, I can have either a male or female read for me. My husband talked me into getting this e-reader because of my eyes. I do not know what I would do without it. I would love to be able to get another one, in case something happens to this one!
