Disadvantages: Odd bits of text are not in the correct format, excellent battery life
I recieved my Kindle as a gift for Christmas so I am not sure how much money it was and therefore can't comment on whether it is good value for money. When I was given I hadn't made up my mind whether I liked the idea of them or not. I downloaded a book on Christmas day after opening it. It was a book recommended by the Kindle for me. It was an excellent book and started my love affair with my kindle. It is very easy to use, even my nan can use one (she brought me mine after falling love with hers). The screen is good quality and does not strain your eyes in the way I had expected it to. There is no glare and is easy to read. Since reading A Game of Thrones recently in paper form I have been reminded how much easier the kindle is to hold compared to a thick book. Also it has a bar at the bottom which tells you how far into the book you are percentage-wise which is very useful.
One problem is occassionally the text has odd symbols which prehaps dont translate from the publishers text to the kindle format. For example you might get upside down question marks etc in the middle of a sentence. But this only happens rarely.
Summary: Good technology I would highly recommend it.
