Great 'Basic' eReader! Love mine!
18 January, 2015
Kindle, 6" E Ink Display is the 'basic' version of the Kindle and works great for reading books, and even playing a few games. If you are simply wanting a device that will work well for reading books, magazines and other Kindle-capable sites then for the price, this is perfect.
Since I already have a tablet, 2 smartphones, 2 laptops and a desktop, it seamed a little silly to by the Kindle Fire because I really didn't need it. I simply needed a good e-reader and that's what I got with the basic Kindle. I really like the idea that I can read outside or inside since the e-ink shows up great in both bright and semi-dim light. It is not lighted like the Paperwhite so you will need a small light at night or in the dark.
There are games that can be downloaded on this device but they are the minimal action-type games like Yahtzee. You won't find any of the 'hot' games on here because it is only black and white and the games need to be played with the few buttons available. Overall, I have had this for quite sometime and have not had any problems. The battery lasts several days, the screen has been very durable (considering what it's been put through) and I have absolutely no complaints. If I were to purchase another one, I would get the Paperwhite just so that I can read at night in bed without turning on a light...
