3.0 out of 5 stars It's good enough, but it could be much better. April 28, 2009
I've been using the 14 Day trial Kindle subscription to various newspapers (New York Times, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times). I thought at first that most should be pretty equal in quality but was seriously mistaken.

Living in Los Angeles, I ended up choosing and keeping the Los Angeles Times subscription for it's coverage of California news and Calendar section. However, I noticed a (very) significant difference in quality from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times to the Los Angeles Times. The aforementioned newspapers rarely (almost never) have typos or grammatical symbols in their articles. The articles are nicely formatted and are very consistent. This is not the case with the Los Angeles Times. While the information is pretty much there for the Los Angeles times, it is very evident that there is a lack of quality in the Kindle edition. I want to like it and the articles are very relevant to me as resident of Los Angeles. The Kindle edition is maybe 80% there.

The editors of the LA Times need to put in more work into this Kindle edition to bring it more in line with their competition. Please look at the quality of the New York times and Wall Street Journal and try to match it (no typos, add pictures and charts, no formatting errors, etc). I'm still a subscriber to the Los Angeles Times but I have seriously pondered switching to either the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal simply for the quality of both their articles and the quality of their Kindle editions (the only thing keeping me as an LA Times subscriber is the California section and the Calendar section in the newspaper). Hopefully the editors can put in the required effort to make this a quality publication.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Kindle Newspaper for me February 8, 2009
By DDW
I tried at least 5 newspapers on the Kindle, including New York Times and Washington Post, and settled on the LA Times a few months ago. The layout and navigation work well on the Kindle. It consistently arrives early. The quality of the writing and the breadth of coverage are both excellent. I would have given it a '5' - but the lack of graphics and photos is an obvious negative--especially when reading a story that refers to a graph that you have no way to see. Nevertheless, I highly recommend LA Times, especially to Californians who want substantial and original coverage of national events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Coverage and Writing August 16, 2008
By J. L.
I live on the East Coast, read both the NY Times and Wash Post on the web, but was disappointed with both their Kindle attempts. Perhaps, their Kindle editions are finalized and published so early (between 4 to 6 am EST) that they can't include many of the stories found on their websites at the time most people start their days. It appears like both are a bit short on articles compared to their print or web editions. The LA Times Kindle edition, however, seems to have more timely headlines for the late morning commute (9 am EST). Also, their writing is solid, and coverage amazing. In addition to the hard news of world conflicts or the housing crisis, they mix in human interest stories like recent ones on the struggles of workaday classical musicians or archaeologists uncovering artifacts from ancient "green" Sahara. Definitely a keeper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did the dog eat part of my paper? June 8, 2009
It's disappointing enough that there are no pictures or graphics in the electronic version of the L.A. Times. (How exciting it is, for example, to read about art, architecture and home decorating without illustrations.) But when I learn that the "special" sports sections featuring the first two Lakers' NBA Final games aren't downloaded with my subscription, I can't believe it!

Am I supposed to buy a second "hard" copy of the newspaper just to see the Times' coverage of the Lakers? Or should I read the paper for free on the tiny screen of my Apple iPhone? Amazon and Kindle, PLEASE get your act together.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough for a major metropolitan newspaper October 25, 2010
By SueDe
What a disappointment! I've been a subscriber to the Los Angeles Times print edition for years, but earlier this year moved to the Kindle version to save trees. Sadly, typographical errors are frequent in the Kindle editions. Article continuity is inconsistent. There are no photos, comics or graphs. Many articles from the print edition are omitted from the Kindle version. Recently, LAT stopped including the local weather forecasts altogether.

Other newspapers manage to publish very acceptable versions on the Kindle. Los Angeles deserves a better newspaper.

FOLLOW UP (7/31/12): I cannot change my rating although Kindle content has improved somewhat. However, the LA Times is not forthcoming as to the reason why Print subscribers to the LA Times get unlimited access to online content, while Kindle subscribers cannot access full online content without a separate subscription at additional cost. My requests for explanations go unanswered by LAT. I've been a paid subscriber for years, but am ready to cancel my subscription altogether and read my news online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive but REAL GOOD! December 5, 2010
After reading the comments from everyone I was leery about it, so I decided to try it out for the 14 days free and see for myself...I have no idea what people are talking about. There plenty of pictures (albeit in black/white), stats, scores, etc...Also very well laid out in both sections or titles/articles. You can chose to keep issues or it automatically deletes the old one when it downloads the new one. It seems to be the complete paper, but I have no reference as I don't subscribe to the print edition.

The one thing that is insane is the price...cannot believe what they are charging, which is one of the things I am debating in keeping or deleting the subscription once the 14 days expire...I really would like to keep it, but not at that price.

Absolutely you should give it a chance if you like to read this paper.

Press the "Menu" button in the article and chose the "Clip this Article" selection. The article should be in your clippings. You can then connect your Kindle to your computer, open the My Clippings file and print out the article.

What's the difference from reading the Times on a laptop?
I find its nice to have the days paper in sections ...

And its very portable without needing full laptop.

Personally I really, really like having Kindle newspapers on my Kindle .. especially things like the huge Sunday papers.
