Kindle Fire Product Review

Updated on September 28, 2012

Kindle Fire HD: 2 Thumbs Up

The reasons why I purchased my Kindle Fire

To be honest, after many years of lugging my books across the university campus as a “rule” decided by our professors that we must have our textbooks on hand for each lecture, who very rarely called upon us to refer to our texts, but when they did, we better have had that beloved book in our possession, I was tired of it! I had spotted a few classmates with Kindles in the past and decided to take the plunge into the world of Modern Technology all the while saving my precious back from many years of pain and distortion. Little did I know; not only would I save a TON of money by purchasing the ebooks on amazon, but, I was able to annotate and refer back to those notes with the swipe of a finger.

Product Review

The Kindle Fire is Lightweight, large and sleek enough to grab your attention, but small enough to cart around in your purse, or briefcase without noticing the load. The screen is large, and literally looks like you are holding an open book in your hands.

Initially, the Kindle Fire was meant for school alone until I realized all of the extras that came along with this wonderful gadget, needless to say, six months later and I am hooked! I decided on the Kindle Fire because amazon has a very large selection of texts, and at a price I have found extremely hard to beat. It is literally as easy as 1-2-3 to order books and read them on the Kindle Fire. All you have to do is search for the text, hit “Buy”, it downloads, and you open it, all the while store both on the device, and cloud. There is no waiting in line, or for the mail to come. Once you purchase it, it is yours, for as long as you wish for it to remain on the device. There are many perks the Kindle Fire has to offer; Web browsing through Wi-Fi, an extensive app store, photo storage, videos, documents, and all of the books you could possibly want which connect to your Cloud, e-mail, music, and much more. I found myself renting and watching movies while traveling, reading and editing documents, purchasing books for recreational reading which until very recently I had lost and interest in.

You are able to bookmark pages within the book, write notes and highlight passages. The lovely thing about this is that you do not have to remember or spend an hour flipping through the pages trying to find your annotations because the kindle fire saves all of that for you in the bookmark section.

Battery Life

So, Amazon estimates that your Kindle Fire should get an estimated 8 hours of use…OH MY GOODNESS, let me be the first to say, IT IS SO TRUE. I have only charged this sucker a total of four times since buying it. I take precautions in order to save the battery like lowering the brightness when it is not necessary, and shutting down the Kindle when I am finished…that is it!

Last thoughts

Overall, this has to be one of the best purchases of the year for me, and I have not regretted it since Fed Ex dropped it off at my doorstep six months ago!
