Got it for Christmas. No disappointment here. Watching some of the commercials for the old Kindle, I realize that I never read in the sun! I read in bed! Backlit works for me. I read less nowadays and I'm starting to realize that I have to hold a book too close. Being able to hold the Kindle at a more comfortable distance and just enlarging the text allows me to read wayyyy too late! I hear there are some complaints, but I think too many people are expecting way too much. They expect it to be an iPad Jr. Fact is; it's a reader first and is able to do a bunch of other stuff OK. Then there are those complaining about accessibility. But it's not really a Kindle, it's just an Android devise running the Kindle App. Filled my expectations.
