Unreal performance for $99! I couldn’t be happier.

I’ll preface this by saying that I own an iPad, and was not expecting a $99 tablet to perform at anywhere near that level. I have followed the early reviews closely, and after seeing enough satisfied customers, I figured I’d give the Kindle Fire HD 6 a try. I chose the base 8 GB with special offers and my plan was to use it as a secondary e-reader and a secondary or even tertiary vehicle for internet access. What I’ve found is a powerful little tablet, so far completely free of the bugs and laggy speeds mentioned in the early reviews. In fact, performance has so exceeded expectations that I consider this perhaps the year’s best purchase.

The single best value Fire in the entire line. Skip the Fire 7 and get the Fire 6 instead!

If you read my Fire TV review you know that I am tough on Amazon when it comes to their own items. It needs to deliver quality for the price point to earn stars from me. Please take the time to read my entire review and feel free to ask questions. I will do my best to respond to them as I can and update the review to reflect those answers and other things I discover along the way.

HD Fire 6 is great for the price!

For the low price, this tablet really does more than expected! The camera isn’t great; however, I always use my phone for a camera so that doesn’t effect me. Here are some of the pros and cons:

I was skeptical as I like the feel

My 95 father announced, “I want a Kindle for Christmas.” No one knows where he got the idea but he actually wanted two: one for himself and one for me so I wouldn’t bother him. I was skeptical as I like the feel, smell, and warmth of a “real” book. I bought two. Between Christmas and New Year’s day, he read three books. (Yes, he is a fast reader). I am working on one very thick (by paper book standards) book and do not have his speed.

Okay, I will admit it. I have always been a Kindle skeptic. I would consider myself pretty experienced with tablets, but they have always been on the android platform. I have heard mixed reviews about this particular tablet, but let me tell you, I was beyond impressed. I never thought a little six inch tablet would pack this much punch.

Perfect for Younger Children…

I bought this for my 3 1/2 year old son. This was the perfect purchase! It is small enough for him to carry around, yet big enough for me to “borrow” at times. It even allows him to download a movie to watch in the car, where there is no access to WiFi. I LOVE the parental control and FreeTime features. I can require him to read books for a given period of time, i.e. 30 minutes, before he is able to watch movies or play games. I can also set it to shut down at a particular time on weekdays, and set a separate time for weekends. There are more than enough books, games, and apps for him to enjoy!

First of all, let me talk about the price. Amazon is trying to compete with companies like Apple and Samsung for a spot in the tablet world, and Amazon found their competitor’s weak point-the price! The last time I checked, you cannot buy an iPad for under $100, nor can you purchase a Samsung Note for that price either. Although the HD 6 does not have the full range of capabilities that the other tablets have, it is still an amazing piece for the price. One thing that I did not like was the fact that I cannot change the wallpaper. Having used Apple devices all of my life, that has been common for me, and even though it is kind of a small thing, it still might matter to some people.
