I tried the two week free trial and really enjoyed the magazine. I would like the convenience of reading it on the Kindle, but 10.99 per month is too expensive. I'm thinking about subscribing directly to the online version at $79 per year.

1/30/10 update: I just subscribed to an offer in the mail for $52 for the online and print editions for a year. I suspect that I got this offer because I signed up for the free trial and then cancelled.

6/29/12 update: I cancelled the subscription about a year ago. The company has been making annoying daily phone calls to my house to get me to resubscribe. We have repeatedly said that we weren't interested. We finally gave up and blocked the phone number.

I've experienced multiple bugs when reading Barron's issues on my Kindle. Sometimes advancing to a "page of death" in the issue is enough to cause the issue to become unopenable until the issue is downloaded again -- inconvenient when on the subway to say the least. I routinely notice HTML encoding bugs (e.g., "S& amp;& amp;& amp; & amp; & amp; P 500"). The formatting is often poor, with missing line breaks or section headings making interviews difficult to parse. The graphics, charts and figures are usually illegible; they're not sized properly to view on the Kindle. Unlike a paper subscription, a Barron's Kindle subscription does not entitle you to use the Barron's website. As of a few months ago, customer service informed me such an option (Kindle + Web) was not available.

As for the content, let me briefly comment that when Barron's writes on sectors that I know pretty well (technology / Internet), I am sometimes struck by the shoddiness of the reporting --- competitors they forgot to mention, bad understanding of the business at hand, failure to ask key questions. I often worry that sectors I know less about (let's just say everything else) are getting the same treatment.

When it works, the Kindle edition is a perfectly pleasant way to read the magazine, especially if it's the commentary and not the tables you're after. Trouble is, it often doesn't work. I've subscribed for about four months and I've either received very late delivery (meaning several hours after I complained) or incomplete delivery (a partial edition with just a few articles and no functional index) on at least half a dozen occasions. That's a pretty high failure rate. Buyer beware.

Absolutely terrible. Subscribed and was able to log on one time. Ignored by customer support (emailed them with detailed description of the problem, including screen shots). I wasted over an hour over a two day period trying to get on. Actually, I could log on sometimes (my name at the top of the page and "log OUT" button showing), but they would not let me access anything other than offers to buy a digital subscription! (Which, of course, I already had)

One more thing that illustrates the mindset of these people: 26 weeks for $26, after which it is AUTOMATICALLY renewed at $3/week (3x as much as introduction), UNLESS you contact them to stop. Problem is, I could find no website link to stop the renewal. They have links for everything else, but make it difficult/inconvenient to stop the automatic renewal. Instead, they give you a telephone number to call. A long wait and, of course, no documentation that you requested cancelation of automatic renewal.

Update on 4/8/2015: These people are either terribly incompetent or just plain dishonest. Last month they started billing my credit card $12.49/month despite my email and telephone request last August (and return email confirmation) to cancel my subscription immediately. Good thing I contacted them using both email and telephone, since they now deny I canceled at all. I sent email documentation to VISA for a chargeback of the billings.

The electronic edition has all of the articles but NONE of the statistics of the print edition. If you don't want statistics the electronic version is great, but it ought to be discounted.

Barron's has fantastic, thoughtful and often insightful articles and interviews. However, the formatting of the Kindle Edition content is often poor, meaning that graphs, charts and other graphics are often too small to read or not aligned properly. Also, subscriptions for the print edition with internet access included are available for close to half the price on a yearly basis. I hope Dow Jones & Company takes note and makes some adjustments...then they will be on their way to a five-star review, in my opinion.

OK I have been reading Barron's since the 70's on and off, depending on how obsessed I was with the stock market. Barron's may not make you rich, but it may keep you from making a really dumb mistake such as buying Facebook at the IPO.
The problem is that on my Kindle E-reader, the text is nicely variable but the tables are illegible. And of course, the tables are where your brain wants to go to see the details side by side. In fact, there are none of the huge data lists that occur in the print version.
OK so if I am going to only get the article-text out of the Barron's, it should run at a discount to the print version. But at 10.99 a month, where is the discount?
I really do like my E-reader, and really do like Barron's, but the way Barron's is served up on my b/w Kindle is not worth paying 11 bucks for. It might be worth 5 bucks a month, just for the timely delivery on Saturday morning.
I will have to try some other mags like IBD I guess.
