Update on Dec 23 2013 - Please scroll to the very end of this review for 2 month use update. [...]

For those who are looking at getting the best tablet out there at the moment, this is the one you should be looking at.

My profile: Heavy tablet users for personal and business purposes. I work on my tablet around 4-5 hours a day (Email / Documents / Spreadsheet / PDF ) and use it 1-2 hours for personal use such as watching movies or reading books/magazine. Tablet is my go-to device for all internet related search I do.

I have the following and/or used the following before:

1) iPad 1
2) iPad 2
3) iPad 4
4) iPad Mini
5) Kindle Fire
6) Kindle Fire HD
7) Kindle Fire HD 8.9
8) Asus Transformer with Keyboard
9) Nexus 7 First Gen
10) iPad Air 16gb Wifi

As you can see, I been through many devices and hope this review with my experience helps users decide if this is the right device for them. This will be an ongoing review for this device throughout this next year. For comparison sake, I will use last year's Kindle and iPad mini as they are the closest size to this HDX 7"

Speed (9/10):

This is leaps and bounds faster than last year Kindle HD. Last year Kindle struggles to go through any HD video content I put in. This year's HDX able to play seamlessly all the HD 1080p contents I added. It is incredible how much the 2.2Ghz quad processor improved vs last year's model Dual 1.2Ghz.

Screen (9/10):
This is the biggest improvement over last year's model. The screen is in true HD 1080p (1920x1080). This means any HD content I throw at it will view in its intended resolution. The screen is crystal clear (much better than iPad mini) and the viewing angle is incredible.

This is the middle model of the three models that Amazon is shipping this year: the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire HDX (this tablet), and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". This is the successor for last year's Kindle Fire HD but with an updated operating system and new features, a redesigned shell (with the power and volume control buttons more readily accessible), an absolutely amazing display, superb sound, an included power adapter, and the new Mayday feature.

Update: Some users are reporting a bluish glow around the edges of the screen for the HDX. If you search on YouTube for HDX Blue Haze, you can find a video showing the issue. Amazon has updated their "Learn More" link with the following info:

"To achieve the perfect color accuracy on Kindle Fire HDX 7" at the lowest possible battery consumption and device weight, we used blue, not white, LEDs. Blue LEDs allow for a much more accurate and rich representation of color and result in an up to 20% improvement in power efficiency."

"As a result of using these blue LEDs, you may notice a very narrow, faint blue tint around the edge of the device when looking at items with a white background, such as books or web pages. All displays have some level of light emission around the edges, and the light on the Kindle Fire HDX 7" is blue due to the technology used to render perfect color accuracy."

If this is something that you think would bother you, I'd recommend taking a look at the YouTube video or taking a look at the HDX at a local Best Buy or office superstore. I've also uploaded a user image here of my HDX with a book loaded so that you can see the blue glow (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B00DOPNO4M/).

I purchased my 64 gb HDX during a holiday Gold Box event. At first, I loved the thing. The size was great and it seemed to work great as well. Two months into my ownership experience I am now rather disappointed.

First, the Amazon app (yes the portal to all things Amazon) freezes if you browse Amazon items too long. The very purpose of the Kindle, to be a gateway drug to all things Amazon, doesn't work - ironic. I try May Day support and they direct me to Kindle support. Kindle support says I need to check to see if my Kindle is up to date. It turns out I am on software version 4.5.1, but support says I need to be on 4.5.2. Unfortunately, the Kindle refuses to update the software from the device and insists (through it own messaging) that my device is "Up to date". Kindle support emails me a link to a file so I can manually update the kindle via computer/usb. OK, problem is, I follow the steps and the Kindle still won't update. It refuses to move off of 4.5.1. Oh well, I figure. I'll deal with an occasional freeze and the inability to shop Amazon on the device.

Yesterday, my downloaded Prime videos all disappeared. And now the device won't let me re-download them or download other videos. I decide this time to try Amazon Live Chat for support. Well, that was a waste of time. The Live Chat rep simply asks redundant questions and doesn't provide solutions all while assuring me my problem will be solved. After long delays between rep responses, I go weary and I disconnect chat.

I guess I will spend my night searching Google for an answer. I own an Android phone and an Ipad. I've never had a similar problem with an update and really don't believe Amazon support has a clue.

I am a dedicated Amazon shopper and have loved every experience with Amazon up until now. I would steer away from this device.
