How is it any better than ordering it directly from Amazon?
#3
I was considering getting one of these type of readers for the wife for her birthday - can it really be recommended over the Sony PRS-650 [which I know is nearly twice the price] ?

I'm assuming because you can get 3.03% cash back (topcashback)
#5
its fantastic faythur and well worth the price but go for the 3G one which is about 40 pounds more, the kindle is great and far better than the sony
#6
What is the difference between the 2.

Nice item, my daughter has one, pity I don,t read books but it is a nice bit of kit
#8
I'd order from amazon due to their returns policy. Also, this is rrp.

I agree a great e-reader, but I have the Wi Fi version and can see no advantage of spending the extra £40 on the 3g. I don't want to use it other than as a book reader and I can easily download all I need at home, or if I am really desperate there are pleanty of wi fi hot spots all over the world.

Aren't you limited to downloading your books from Amazon if you have a Kindle?
#11
My parents have both recently got one. They were already keen readers so this was ideal. They both love it, my mum checks her emails on it too. I've been tempted for a while, and the convenience of buying it on the high street is appealing. Anyone think the price will drop at all?

No, they have a service you can email documents etc to and it can convert things and sent it on.

Otherwise you can just plug it into your computer via USB and copy and paste books onto it, including PDFs - although I find the PDF's pretty small to read and a bit fiddly if you have to zoom around the screen.

I love my Kindle though, use it on the train to and from work - perfecto!

Can anyone recommended sites for buying books other than Amazon?

You can also convert other formats to the Kindle mobi formats, lots out there. I was worried about the proprietry format but it isn't an issue.

We bought the kindle after looking at the Sony and prefer the feel of the Kindle.

Thanks for that. It's good to hear - though I might just purchase from Amazon instead, as I have understand that they have a 30 day 'buy and try' policy.

Thanks

There are of course loads of different ereaders available [which I only discovered last night] though the Amazon and Sonys seem to be the most talked about. Had a look at some Youtube reviews too, and there do sem to be pros and cons with both, though for the price, I don't think the Kindle can be beaten for what it offers.


e.g http://www.the-ebook-reader.com/

My other half has a Kindle and I have a Samsung, not much difference between the 2. I would say that Amazon seem to have more choice of books at better prices, loads are free and plenty for under £2.
#22
I would buy from amazon, great customer service, can return under distance selling rules if you dont like it
I have one, best thing I have bought for ages, download from all sorts of places but to be honest the Amazon store is pretty cheap, lots of independent authors selling books under £1 and lots of free books available. Also can download Calibre software free and then download newspapers free of charge- I download observer and guardian at weekend and am saving a small fortune on papers and books. Have also used the amazon conversion system to send books/papers in other formats and have sent them back free of charge in seconds.
Benefit of 3G version......being anywhere in the world and being able to buy a new book without having to find a wifi hotspot. Also can access internet in basic format in a lot of countries. If you only read at home and wont want to use internet function go for the cheaper one. Also go through nectar website and you can get points on amazon purchases
#23
Thanks for the heads up, can get 10% of Curry's with work which suddenly makes the 3G one much better value (no discount at Amazon!).
#24
Great product. Can't see point of paying extra for 3G as you can preload so many books before you go away on your home wifi network or at a wifi hotspot. Very easy on the eye to read and best screen for reading in bright sunlight. Font sizes are adjustable as well.
#25
If you buy a Kindle then you MUST download a free program for the PC called Calibre. It easily converts Ebooks from most other Ebook formats (epub, lit, pdf) into the mobi format which can be simply copied to the Kindle by USB. There are thousands of books available for free on all the usual sites / newsgroups.
#26
There are millions of books available to download for free if you know where to look. I have 15,000 sci-fi and fantasy novels that i "acquired" from a popular downloading site.
The 3G version is great if you want a book delivered by Amazon over the whispernet where ever you are, but who regularly downloads a book when they are out and about?! It'll hold 3,000 so why would u need 3G? lol.

The battery life is immense, lasts for weeks with constant use. All in all the Kindle is brilliant, and by far the best reader on the market at the moment. I am just praying that Amazon update it to the new color e-ink format at an affordable price in the near future. I'll upgrade to one if they do, but until then the Kindle 3 is the best.
#27
Anyone know software that will convert Kindle to other format?

Got a Sony Ebook reader

Calibre is a bit slow and buggy...but does the job...

@Faythur - I had the original Sony PRS505. I sold it to get the Kindle. It's faster than my old Sony at page turning (by about 3 seconds), the books are a lot cheaper and there's a better selection, and you don't need to download them onto your computer and then transfer them across. I have purchased more books in 3 months on the Kindle than I did in 2 years with the Sony. The only thing that could improve the Kindle would be a touch screen, although it does mighty well without it.
#30
It's good piece of kit, also has a basic web browser so decent if abroad with access to free wifi
#31
Had my first play with a relatives Kindle 3G last night and was very impressed. After a few pages of reading and getting used to the page forward button I was immersed in the book. Screen is excellent, crisp text. No back light to save power and reduce eye strain.

If you want automated daily downloads of news papers wherever you are then get the 3G otherwise I would think the Wifi Only is just fine. Connect it to your home network or use your mobile as a hotspot (if it will do that) to get any downloads. Save the £40 to go towards the next version.
#32
buy one now!

Kindle are the best. I never used to read at all, but i decided to get one and now i read all the time! 3g is worth it if you not have a iphone as you can search the net for information. the sites look ok on it and is very good for article reading (there is also a mode for this).

Also with Calibre you can convert all book types, even pdf & lots of free books from the amazon store.
