Amazon's warranty applies.
Ordered for Christmas present. Good to have 2 year warranty
Ordered thanks - anyone seen the global electrical offer?

Ordered thanks - anyone seen the global electrical offer?



Do you mean eGlobal central? A recent offer on HUKD... I personally wouldn't bother, it's a grey import, from a HK based company, I'd rather pay a little extra and get it from a solid company like JL or Amazon, especially at the current running price. Have a look at the reviews for eGlobal.
I've had a Kindle break on me (screen issue) and Amazon replaced it (free returns) within a few days.
Does this have the special offers on it?

Not when you are reading, only when you turn it on or when it is off ads display sometimes, not really an issue for me,although if you ask Amazon they normally just remove them for free

Calibre is terrible, adds random blank lines, double spacing, breaks lines for no good reason. Better email it to your kindle @ address with the word "convert" as subject, works 100%.

People (read idiots) like you are the reason I don't frequent this site much anymore.
Calibre is fine.

Picked mine up yesterday. Contacted Amazon chat and they took the offers off.

While the offers on the screensaver aren't that bad, it's the need to swipe the screen to go to the homepage that is annoying. That, and the small panel at the bottom of the home page.

Once the offers are off, a single press of the power button toggles screensaver on and off.

assuming this is the one with special offers as its the same price as amazon - anyone able to confirm? the description mentions nothing

It says on the JL site this is saving £30 making the actual RRP £109.99, which is the price of the special offer version on Amazon outside of the deal.

So you have to assume it's the special offer version as the RRP of the non special offers version is £119.99.

I think there is a charge for that.

So I have a choice of using Calibre (which is fine by the way) for free or pay Amazon for each conversion.

It's a toughie :-)

i have got one kindle paperwhite,then i have more reading time.

I'm glad Amazon doesn't know about those charges, I've converted hundreds of PDFs, RTFs and epub files this way.

PDF conversion automatically removes all the original page breaks. To … PDF conversion automatically removes all the original page breaks. To remove the page numbers/footers, etc you need to use the remove header/footer regex option under Structure detection. You need to write a regular expression to do this, because every pdf is bit different with respect to page numbers/headers/footers.

It's a well know issue that's been ongoing for the last 5 years. Somehow amazon's conversion never failed me. Can't imagine how importing books to some software and copying them afterwards is easier than sending one email and getting perfectly working mobi delivered straight to your kindle.

It's free and also as the advantage of storing the books in the cloud and all the advantages this entails, such as reading books on your other devices and making it far easier when upgrading your kindle.
