Top customer reviews
Comment added 4/24/16: With the announcement of the new Kindle Oasis, it's now clear that a Voyage replacement is not exactly what Amazon had in mind. Rather Amazon has introduced a new higher-end Kindle and seems to be retaining the Voyage in the Kindle lineup, at least for now. I'm therefore changing the title of this review from "A good value (just know that a new Voyage is likely just around the corner)", to the present title. The text of the review remains as originally written.
I have had my Kindle Voyage since it was first introduced, and I also purchased this leather cover at that same time (but in red, not black). I don't have this particular charger, but I have several of the equivalent models that I've accumulated over the years from previous Kindle purchases.
Without going into great detail on the merits of the Voyage (click on the link in the first paragraph for customer reviews), I will say that I use it every day, it replaced my PaperWhite (first generation) and I prefer the Voyage over the PaperWhite, the screen is very high quality and uniformly illuminated, the battery life is excellent, and it holds as many books as I could possibly want to carry with me (as I write this, I have over 1000 books on my Voyage, and it is roughly half full).
It's also slightly smaller than the PaperWhite (but with the same size screen), and therefore lighter to hold, and it's styled and finished a bit nicer.
It's a terrific e-reader and I've never regretted purchasing it.
With respect to the Protective Leather Cover, I have learned to love the 'origami' design, and I use it often to prop up the Kindle when reading while eating. I had owned the previous book-style case for my PaperWhite and was initially hesitant to get the origami case, but I'm glad that I did. It is high quality and looks great, even after over a year of daily use.
This particular package also includes a 5W Power Adapter. If purchased separately I think that the adaptor is overpriced (see my review to it). But if you're getting it as part of this bundle, then it's just fine.
There is no reason to purchase this bundle unless you are Amazon Prime - the savings in price, which are considerable, are only given to Prime members. But if you're a Prime member and interested in getting this particular model of Kindle, along with the case and charger, then this is an excellent value. EDIT: The special pricing for this bundle was originally offered only to Prime members but it is now available to any purchasers.
(One more thing to note - if purchased separately, the Voyage is offered in both Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi plus 3G models. This bundle includes the Wi-Fi model and it doesn't seem to be offered for the Wi-Fi plus 3G model. So if you want to be able to use your Kindle away from Wi-Fi networks and still sync with the Amazon cloud and purchase and download books, this won't work for that).
The only reservation I would mention regarding the Voyage is this - it is predicted that Amazon will be introducing a new replacement for the Voyage at any time, and anyone considering purchasing a Voyage today should be aware that this is likely to happen. (Some crazy people, such as myself, will probably order the new Voyage when it comes out, even though their current Voyage is still working just fine. Go figure). In fact, it's probably safe to guess that one of the reasons Amazon is offering this discounted bundle is their pending announcement of the new replacement for the Voyage. So they're doing this to help clear out the old inventory. Which is fine. Those who take advantage of it will be getting a great deal.
You can buy the cover separately for 60 dollars, and that's the real selling point in this bundle. You essentially save 10 bucks, plus you get a charging plug included. Now I know that amazon sells its charging plug for 20 bucks, but honestly, that's outrageous, and I would never buy that. But, if they've included, I'll take it! People tend to hate the origami cover, and if you do, then this bundle is worthless to you. However, I LOVED it. It's beautiful, it's slick, and comfortable to hold. It protects the Voyage, and it's really convenient as a stand. You can go for low quality ones, but this is by far the greatest. The best part about this case though, has to be the fact that it attaches to the voyage magnetically, like my iPad and smart cover. This is really convenient, and is an additional selling point. If you think the case is coming in the way you can very easily just detach it. Really nice addition, which by the way, was not included in the paperwhite, or earlier editions.
So it's a lot of money. But it's TOTALLY worth it!
Screen and Size
If you've had other kindles, you will notice this: the voyage is slightly smaller. The specs will tell you that, but once you actually get it, you'll see the difference, and it's really helpful, because you can just stick it in your pockets!
People have complained about the screen a lot, however, I have found to absolutely amazing! Like phones, there is an auto brightness setting (which can be manually adjusted as well) which comes in really handy. The paperwhites had questionable screens, and the so called “improved lightning” didn’t always used to work. However, I had absolutely no problem in the past couple of months with this at all! Additionally, the resolution on the Voyage is so much better than that of the Paperwhite’s! In this day and age, you wouldn’t expect something to be blurry (unless you’re buying that 50 dollar tablet), however, that’s exactly what the paperwhite looks like in comparison to that of the Voyage.
I love the Voyage in particular due to PagePress. The very first kindle had something like this, until for some absurd reason, they removed it. But now it's back, and better than before. You simply "press" or squeeze the bottom of the device edges, and voila, your pages have turned. Out of the three settings for sensitivity (low, medium, and high), I have found low to work best. [The default is medium]. You see, it’s not a button. It’s like a pressure sensor, which is pretty cool.
In conclusion, this is the best kindle out there in my opinion. The origami case goes extremely well with it, is really comfortable to use, and super convenient. The PagePress function is really neat, and something which isn’t included in the Paperwhite. I do have one complaint though. This bundle is really only saving me 15-20 bucks. 10 dollars from the case, and say 5-10 dollars from the unwanted wall charger. I would like a higher discount, however, it’s still better than paying 260 for the case and the Voyage.
