My K1 died! I didn't drop it or anything. Suddenly there were white and gray lines up and down the screen like an etch-a-sketch! Amazon was great, though. I've had the Kindle just one month over the one year warranty, so they're going to overnight a refurbished unit to me at no charge. If this one dies after 90 days, it will cost me $189 to replace. But hey, this is more than I expected. My husband is the bestest ever. He's going to let me use his Kindle tonight so I don't go completely bonkers. What a guy!
Oh Mother, what a sad tale - but with a great ending. :) My K1 toasted after a year and a couple of months and Amazon sent another one for $180. Actually it is the best one I ever had - very crisp pictures/letters. I have some problems at the very beginning so ended up seeing 3 different K1s early on. You should be happy with the new baby. :)
Thanks for your sympathies, PMH. I've been so careful with my K1. Always in it's Oberon case, never dropping it, transporting it in my big purse..... I was shocked! But the CS at Amazon were great. Overnighting the new kid was above and beyond the call of duty, I think.
Good to hear, in one week my one year anniversary is here and I was getting worried should it break. I am also pleased they are still replacing K1s with K1s--I am still infatuated and don't want to switch.
