Customer Review

on December 11, 2011
I just received my Kindle Fire in the mail yesterday. I knew when I purchased it that it was not going to replace my laptop and that it would not have all the bells and whistles of my husband's Ipad2. Thus, my expections of this device were not extremely high. I bought it because I wanted something small and handy that could easily transport from place to place. This device most certainly is that. The smaller screen and the decent battery life make the Fire ready to go anywhere you do in no time. After an inital learning curve, the device is easy to use and the interface is not complicated. This being said, I found the web browser to be slow. I attend grad. school and the Fire took several minutes to load my school's web page. This was after I had to reset it because the internet froze and the only way to get it back on-line was to turn the Fire off and on. Thus, if you are looking for fast web browsing, you won't find it here. After reading this, you might wonder why I gave the Fire a 4 star rating. This is because it does deliver on several good features; additionally, I knew I was getting what I paid for. Is it an Ipad killer? In my opinion, no. Will it replace your laptop or home computer, no. However, for a tablet, it is reasonably priced- especially for people like me that wanted a tablet to check out before committing to something much more pricey. Plus, between free apps and free to low priced books, you check out the Fire's features without spending a lot of extra money.
