5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch April 17, 2010
Upon receiving my kindle, I immediately sought out this publication. I was disappointed when I couldn't find it, as I have been a loyal Sun-Times reader most of my adult life. I settled for the Tribune at first but started to notice the numerous formatting and grammatical errors. Titles were jumbled into by-lines and twice in the first week the 5AM delivery was delayed until past 10AM. Luckily since starting my subcription of the Sun-Times, I have had none of these problems. The 6AM delivery is later but has been consistent from the start. While a newspaper is mainly for reading, an occasional picture really helps drive a story home. Pictures are actually included with this publication and it looks like the professional, finished product that I originally expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Back issues never deleted August 21, 2010
By pb
I received the Sun-Times for three months and found it to be reasonably good and enjoyed reading it. The problem is that every single issue was sent to my Archived Items area, and not deleted after a week as they should be. As a result, my Archived Items folder has 109 items in it, 103 of which are old papers that I can't delete. It makes finding anything there very time-consuming. I have contacted Amazon 3 times about the problem, starting 3 weeks ago, and so far even their Tech department can't figure out how to get rid of them. At the suggestion of an Amazon rep I cancelled the subscription figuring that this would delete the old issues. They are still there 2 weeks after the cancellation.

The paper itself was okay, but if you don't want a clogged Archived Items folder, go with the Tribune. The formatting and pictures of the Sun-Times isn't that much better to warrant the hassle. Also, the Trib is a little better on national and world news.

3.0 out of 5 stars All sorrow, no joy June 26, 2010
By RitaKuz
I have been a Sun Times reader since I could read. I was excited to try out the Kindle version because my paper carrier doesn't understand how to double bag the paper in wet weather so that one end isn't exposed (really, how hard is it to bag each end of the paper?). I eagerly tried out the SunTimes on my Kindle. Alas, my 2 favorite sections of the paper, the comics and the horoscopes, are not on the Kindle version. After reading about all the murders, crime and political shenanigans (of which we Chicagoans seem to excel at) I need my comics for some levity and the horoscopes for some hope.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading February 29, 2012
As a Sun Times daily subscriber for over 40 years I was eager to save money and the environment by switching to the Kindle version. After some adjustment and searching I found some of the sections I routinely read but failed to locate the comics section or the crossword puzzle. I called to inquiry and was told the Kindle editions do not carry some of the sections and images present in the print version. This was highly disappointing. I would certainly have thought harder before switching if I knew I would receive only an abridged version! Perhaps the best solution is to cancel the Kindle subscription as well. I didn't realize the newspaper business was so lucrative that they could afford to alienate their life time subscribers! I will be sure to pass this information on to friends and family who are considering changing!

Disappointed!

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed January 12, 2011
By BethR
I got a Kindle for Christmas and was excited to start getting the Sun-Times on it every morning. The only problem is that it doesn't get downloaded until 7:00am (confirmed this time with Amazon)! Which is when I arrive at work. So I get to see the paper sitting at the train station at 6:00am, but not on my Kindle. Very disappointed since getting the paper was the reason I got the 3G in the first place. Not sure if I want to wait until the ride home to read the paper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Truncated articles, missing sections February 10, 2011
By GkD
The digital delivery of the Sun-Times has consistently been late, contained bad formatting, and truncated articles. After having the "News" section omitted it lead me to cancel subscription out of disgust. For Chicago news, consider the Tribune instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where are the Bears??? February 12, 2011
By A Customer
Tried it for a week but was disappointed with the lack of Sports supplements which would have provided complete coverage of the Bears. There were no articles period. What is a Bears fan supposed to do?

3.0 out of 5 stars more accurate rating would be 2 1/2 starts September 18, 2011
By Paul
After putting up with this format for at least six months hoping it would get better, I finally threw in the towel. Following are just three of the major problems and dissappointments:

*No bylines. Looking for a column by your favorite columnist? Good luck. His or her name MAY be listed, it may not. Usually, the latter.

*Many times, no pictures. When there ARE pictures, they are either cut-off, incomplete or hard to decipher.

*Text that repeats, out of order or doesn't belong in the article.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good job
The sections of the paper I could view seemed to vary from day to day. Many days I only got one section. Why? Many typos or formatting problems. Not worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Of No Help
I'm sure for the normal reader who just wants basic news, this is great. But for me, who actually needs the classified section from today's paper, it was a waste of $.50.
