​Thanks. Good to know if you can't make it to a John Lewis
Is the paperwhite worth paying twice as much as the regular?

It's a step up in resolution, but the big difference is that it has a back light. If you need that, then buy the paperwhite. The voyager is better still.
Our paperwhite died after 13 months (from Argos) so Amazon didn't want to know. Definitely buy from JL I'd say.

What did Argos say about it?
Thanks for posting just had one delivered this morning from John Lewis at the old price so I've put an undersale online claim form in so they should refund me £22
Had my Paperwhite for ~3 years now. Brilliant device. Definitely go for the Paperwhite if your budget can stretch to it - the ability to read day or night, in cars, in bed with partner without disturbing them etc. is worth the extra in my opinion!

I haven't bothered as I am 100% certain they will ask "Have you got your receipt?" and my negative response is likely to bring the conversation to a swift end.

Totally agree £40 extra is nothing for the extra flexibility. My wife and I each have one and would never go back to the old style (although I do sometimes miss the physical buttons on my really old keyboard model)
I have the old style does anyone no if I can move books from one kindle to another?

Also what is the difference between the voyager and paper white other than approximately £50?
Paperwhite WiFi is the best vfm in my humble but respected opinion.

Wished they made mini versions like the kobo one that came out, pocket / mobile phone size, but never did.

Depending on how you use the Kindle. If you want to read in bed without turning the light on, or on the train/bus, then yes. Otherwise, if you're just gonna use the Kindle at your desk with a desk lamp, you can save you money and buy a previous gen.

As stated on previous Kindle posts, Amazon don't want to know about problems once 1 year has passed.
My replacement Paperwhite arrived in 2 days from John Lewis, and the extra year over Amazon's warranty is worth it.

If you use the same kindle account on the new one, then all the books that you have on the old one will be available to download.

Even if you don't do it that way, you can use eBook software Calibre to store and move books around.

Note that the latest generation of Paperwhite has a slightly higher resolution than before, but this unexpectedly makes the font sizes a little smaller if you've upgraded.
And it's not a back light as with tablets, but leds that shine over the front of the screen.

Can someone give me the pros and cons of each of these plus just reading on my Nexus 7?

Actually the new Paperwhite has the same resolution as the voyager, and the voyager has a reflective surface. So it is a matter of taste.

Tesco had the Paperwhite at 79.99 a while ago. I am sure prices will drop again, certainly when the next generation comes out. So you could hold off until then.

Hey, you're right! They replaced the paper white, and I didn't keep up. I'm tempted by the paper white, as my old 3G one gave up the ghost a year ago. I use an ipad as an ereader atm but it's not the same.

Good price not long got the wife the paperweight from Amazon for just over 100 she loves it much better then the old keyboard one she had for a few years
Hi, is it possible for me to move .pub files to the Kindle regular?
Managed to get a Voyage for £102 (they offered a 25% discount because my Kindle Keyboard was broken)
i was going to offer the alternative idea of Nook. Which i find superior. But they packed up and left UK. Now Sainsburys keeps our books in nooks.

Reading is better on dedicated electronic books (paper books even better). No eye fatigue, better visibility in sunlight or plain artificial light, better battery life, no distraction from color screen or apps or emails or games or facebook notifications. Just as reading is better than watching movies or eating pickled onions.
voyager is not much of a step up IMO from paperwhite, oasis though, is how all kindles should have been designed
I like it that Amazon have gone back to puting buttons on the Kindle with the Oasis. I still use the older model from a few years ago that came with buttons as I prefer it to touch based. I know more recent models are faster, have a higher resolution etc but not really found a desperate need to upgrade.
The Kindle Oasis looks like a beautiful, well-designed thing but the £270 - £330 price is RIDICULOUS oO
One major con Is that if you have only just started reading, many of the available books will be too advanced for you.

You could just google this you silly sausage.

Get a free program called Calibre. It will convert any ereader format into any other ereader format :-)

​You want Calibre. Google it. It'll convert almost any text documents or books to kindle friendly (which is just mobi dressed up) format & transfer them to it for you as well.

Personally I still use a nook simple touch glowlight (1st gen) because I love the buttons to turn pages on both sides, meaning it's much more comfortable. Plus it only cost me £30, which is a bonus.

I was going to buy my wife the new Oasis and take her Voyage for myself, but the lack of adaptive brightness on the Oasis is a total deal breaker for us.

I'll just treat myself to a Voyage while there is money off

2 advantages I see Voyage has over the Paperwhite is that the Voyage have Pagepress buttons and also the screen is flush.

Not a big deal to alot of people if they don't mind those extra features and want to save a few quid and go for the Paperwhite.

Oh, let me check... yes, I emailed several times and had an online chat with them.
The 'best' they would offer is a £50 discount on a Voyager model.
No, with the e-readers, there are some known faults, and I tried all the forum advice before nicely asking Amazon.
A 2-year warranty all the way.

Does Argos take a redacted bank/card statement showing the retailer name as proof of purchase?

Graham Hebblethwaite, Chief Officer of West Yorkshire Trading Standards … Graham Hebblethwaite, Chief Officer of West Yorkshire Trading Standards said: 'Even if you don’t have any legal rights to return goods, many shops will allow you to exchange goods or get a credit note so it's worth checking their policies."If an item is faulty or damaged then you should always try to take it back as soon as you can. In each case, always try to take the receipt or other proof of purchase such as a bank or credit card statement with you."

Kindles are fantastic but after many years I recently bought my wife the Kobo Aura H2O, if you’re considering purchasing the voyage I would certainly recommend the H2O the cost is around the same and it provides a bit more flexibility of where you can read as its waterproof.

For example if you enjoy reading in the bath.

Of course it depends if you have hundreds of books and tied into Kindle, but for those who are not its worth considering where you want to use your device
