EXCELLENT tablet at a reasonable price. The Fire HDX is setting the bar for other tablets!

The new Fire HDX 8.9 is definitely one powerful tablet, packed with some pretty nice features. While it does have some small flaws here and there, it generally is an all around great buy. I’ll go over some of what I’ve noticed using the tablet, what I’ve learned from others who are using it, as well as the specs and how I feel about them. Hopefully it’ll give you more insight into the product and help you make an easier decision whether or not to buy it.

Quality Tablet and Excellent Video / Screen Display

I’m writing this review with the benefit of being an experienced Kindle Fire user vs. someone brand new to the Kindle family. In summary, you are getting a great deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding. If you are a first-time large-screen tablet buyer, where price vs. value is a key consideration in comparison to more expensive versions, I’d recommend it. If you’re comparing last year’s HDX model to this version and it is operating fine, I’d say save your money and continue to get your money’s worth out of that one.

Third Kindle; Most Lock-Ups – Edited

This is my third Kindle device which I got on an impulse purchase. Don’t really need ANOTHER Kindle, but this lured me with the amazing screen quality which I find to be on-par or better than the iPad 2 Air. However, this Kindle produces the most lock-ups that require a hard reboot than any other Kindle device I’ve owned. When working, the screen is phenomenal looking while playing Amazon content. In the middle of a movie, the device will stop. It’s not my wireless as other devices will work flawlessly at the same time the Kindle screen locks. In the middle of using any App, the screen will freeze which is very frustrating. Nothing else until I reboot or perform a device hard reset. I feel this product needs more software/firmware updates before it makes it to the five star level. I’ll stick with an iPad Air 2 for now; although, I really, really love Amazon and want to love this device. However, I cannot recommend until glitches are fixed.

Love this new Fire. The size if perfect for watching movies on the go and with the added keyboard I purchased I can use it as a tablet for work. The sound seems a bit muted at times, other than that I love it.

The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the King of all Tablets!

I’ve own probably a dozen tablets including several versions of iPads, Android Tablets, and Windows Tablets. In my opinion, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is the king of all tablets. It combines awesome specs, great performance, a great user experience, a great ecosystem, and a great amount of value. While it does miss a few features offered on other tablets, and its ecosystem still may come in behind that of the iPad, I believe the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the best available tablet on the market.
