Robert, London Avid reader

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I don't know what the other Kindles are like, but I like that this one has adjustable brightness so I can read in the dark or the brightest sunlight. I love having a stack of e-books ready to read, and it's very easy to download them onto it. Changing font size is extremely useful now I'm getting older, and the design is nice -- it's nice to hold.
Bad points:
I find it responds quite slowly to the touch commands. Perhaps that's just in comparison to a smartphone. This doesn't affect my reading pleasure -- I just have to adjust myself to the time lag.

Julie, Poole Gadget lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The paperwhite is backlit, so excellent for continuing to read in bed whilst other half goes to sleep. Ditto on the plane no need to use the overhead light and disturb your neighbour. Dictionary is great for kids to look up word meanings. Ability to make print larger is great for older people. Lighter weight and easier to hold than paperbacks for arthritic hands. My friend tells me its also great for dyslexia since the pages are shorter than standard length giving a real feel of progress.
Bad points:
I'm not a fan of buying books with 1 click on Amazon. Larger format books aren't great. For example you wouldn't read a cookery book. To be fair though you can read it in colour in large format on your PC using Amazon cloud reader.
