2.0 out of 5 stars Too much missing to replace print edition September 5, 2010
I was looking forward to replacing my print subscription with something that was more convenient to read and didn't generate so much waste paper. In that sense, the Kindle edition of the Seattle Times succeeds. I found the delivery very prompt and you can't beat the convenience of getting the paper in bed on Sunday morning. I found the display on the Kindle sharper than the newsprint and easier on my eyes. It is nice not to have to wrestle with the big floppy sheets of a newspaper. Reading it on the bus would be a pleasure. I like not having to hunt for the continuation of the stories on inside pages.

BUT...just too much useful content is missing. Here is a list of content I found in my print edition but not in the Kindle edition:

- Maps, charts, statistics boxes. A story on home sales/prices was crippled by not having the charts to illustrate it. A map can be critical to understanding where a news event occurred.
- Most of the photos and their captions.
- The "Newsline" and "Biz line" columns of shorter articles. As the print edition has shrunk, sometimes important stories can only be found there.
- Pacific and Parade magazines.
- Sidebars showing where to find follow-up information, ticket information, addresses, etc.
- Comics, puzzles.
- All sorts of useful sports information, anything that is not an "article": league standings, box scores, batting averages, line scores, the entire page of statistics from various sports.
- Sub-headlines and drop-quotes that give you a hint about whether you want to read an article.
- Weekly review.
- Weather.
- Letters to the editor.
- Movie show times.
- Stock listings, charts, other economic indicators.
- List of things open/closed during holiday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Generally Pleased March 6, 2009
By Phil
I got my Kindle 2 the day it came out, and subscribed to the Seattle Times the first day. It has been a little over 2 weeks now of me getting the newspaper digitally. I should note that I do not receive the printed version.

I read many of the other reviews that spoke of the paper not being delivered until late in the day. I have not experienced this. I wake up 3 days a week at 5AM, and the remainder of the days at around 6:30 and the paper has been available when I wake up every day so far. Perhaps they have improved since those reviews.

As for the content, I do enjoy being able to skip around and enjoy the subscription so far. I feel like I am missing a lot of content though. I knew ahead of time that I wouldn't be getting the entire paper and sections such as classifieds etc. would be omitted. I do wish the comics section was available along with the weather. For me I am busy enough that reading the paper every day is difficult, so I enjoy the table of contents and being able to read the headlines and read the articles I am interested in. I feel like if I bought the actual printed version that there would be many articles in the printed version that were not available in the digital one, though I have not tried this.

Overall I enjoy my subscription and will continue to get it. As I said before, it would be even better with more content but overall I am pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for Me December 21, 2007
Paper is ready for me in the morning. I like the way it's boiled down to the articles and I don't have to cart papers to the trash.
Articles are well organized and the Kindle is great as a reader.
Simply amazing. As for the weather it's on the TV, my computer, and out my window.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much missing March 17, 2009
By Bob
Wish it did have some picture content, but an even bigger problem is that you subscribe to a regional paper and it has no regional information, such as weather and local issue columns.

3.0 out of 5 stars price increase is disgusting March 15, 2010
I find it more than appalling that the Kindle charge for a Seattle Times subscription is rising to $9.99 per month and the home delivery is only $5.35/month. What gall! The electronic version saves the paper so much money in printing and truck/car delivery. Not to mention the fact that the electronic paper comes with less e.g. no coupons and less content. Who is making these ridiculous, bassackwards decisions????

2.0 out of 5 stars Late delivery trumps good content July 16, 2008
Agree with others that content is good, but in my trial delivered late 14% of the time. One day didn't arrive until after noon, and today not delivered when I normally read the papaer at 600 am mountain time. Perhaps this is true of pther west coast papers - but it doesn't work for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Only Way I'll Read The Seattle Times March 9, 2009
I have lived in Seattle for years but have never found the daily paper necessary. Paper pile-up was more of a burden than an asset.

The Kindle has changed all of that for me. The "paper" is there every morning when I wake up and I read it front-to-back, so to speak.

With a 14-day no-hassle trial, you can't lose! I thought I'd probably cancel before the trial expired, but I'm enjoying the Seattle Times more than I ever have before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow as molasses January 10, 2008
If the paper is STILL not here by the time I get to work at 11am, there's something wrong with that service. If Amazon wants to make this a viable option to the hard copy, they need to bring up the delivery speed.
