5-Reasons-Why-You-Should-Buy-the-Amazon-Kindle-Over-Other-Gadgets

The Amazon Kindle has held its place at the top of the Amazon.com bestseller list for months now, and is still selling in huge numbers. With each generation, Amazon have improved the features and made it more accessible for other eBook formats. But if you’re still on the fence about whether you should buy the Kindle or another eBook reader/ tablet computer, here are five reasons why the Kindle is a winner.

1) You Only Use It To Read

There are many people out there asking why buy a Kindle when you could buy something fancy like an iPad? For a start, the Kindle costs far less. Secondly, you may not want all the bells and whistles that come with devices such as the iPad.

The truth is that the Kindle focuses on one thing: reading. Because of this, Amazon do their best to bring you the best reading experience possible. Sure, you could read eBooks on the iPad, but you wouldn’t get the benefit of the e-Ink screen, you’d find that your eyes quickly get tired out, and that you can’t read the screen out in bright sunlight.

If you love reading and want a device that won’t ruin the experience of reading physical books then the Kindle is definitely the option for you.

The Kindle DX: Is This Bigger eBook Reader Worth The Price Tag?

The-Kindle-DX-Is-This-Bigger-eBook-Reader-Worth-The-Price-Tag

Pros Of The Kindle DX The larger screen means you’ll get a lot more text on the page, making the DX far easier to read and easier on the eyes. It also means that books are displayed more as they were intended to. Although this doesn’t always matter, when it comes to things like poetry, layout is key to getting the feeling of the words on the screen. The Kindle DX is perfect for this.

The newest Kindle DX also has far better contrast than any of the other previous models. This takes it one step further into being just as easy and as comfortable to read as a real book – something that Amazon pride themselves on with all their Kindle models.

Cons Of The Kindle DX

Because of its large size and extra features, the Kindle DX costs a lot more than the regular Kindle. In fact, it costs around twice as much as the 3G + WiFi version of the Kindle! This is certainly not within the price bracket of most casual users.

In fact, the high price of the Kindle DX means that it is barely cheaper than buying a more multifunctional device such as the iPad 2. The latter can perform a huge range of different functions through the use of apps, where the former is for reading. However, it’s important to bear in mind that, as an eBook reader, the Kindle DX still has the edge in terms of the screen being easy on the eyes, readable in sunlight and more like a “real” book.
