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.
