Advantages: build quality, battery life and size.
Disadvantages: no back lit screen.
I have to admit I am a great fan of the paper book, I have never been a fan of an ebook readers as I believed they are an imitation of the real experience of reading a book.
But this changed instantly when my cousin bought this Amazon Kindle ebook reader for me on my birthday.
At first I was not so sure but my cousin encouraged me to try it out at least for a week or two.
And when I did test it out I was truely amazed at how realistic ebook readers are.
I have found this product to be very great for passing time during the daily commute as it is light and compact which means it does not take up as much space as a large novel.
The silver/grey design of the kindle is very simple and it feels very strong and long lasting. However, I would recommend investing in a cover of some sort to keep it as protected and safe as possible.
Even as a newbie to the Ebook readers I found the interface on this kindle very simple and easy to use, an example of this is increasing/decreasing font size.
The choice of books on the Amazon store is huge as you can download ebooks of all genres from fiction to non-fiction. However, some are free whereas others are not.
The battery life of this product is absolutely outstanding as I use it for days without needing to charge it one.
The only bad side I have found to this product so far is that it does not have a backlit screen. This is a dissapointment as you have to read in well lit places as it gets very tiring in dark conditions.
Summary: A great eBook reader for use at home and the daily commute.
