“Imagine you found a magic mirror you could touch and it would show you the words of almost every book that’s ever been. Imagine you could use it to send messages to other people on the other side of the world, and those people could answer back, almost instantly!”
Yep…and we use it to look at pictures of cats! :0)
I purchased this device with 32 gigs memory when it was last offered by Woot and have been VERY pleased. The picture quality is amazing and it performs beautifully.
I don’t, for the life of me, understand why Amazon got out of the business of making amazingly high quality tablets and instead got into the business of making cheap sucky tablets.
The HDX compared favorably with the iPad of its day and was arguably a better tablet.
I bought the tablets in 2012 and 2013 and figured I would skip a year rather than shell out a bunch of money again so I didn’t buy the 2014 one. Then, of course, Amazon stops making them.
Well, I’m finally getting my 2014 one.
I wish Amazon would continue the HDX line. I kept thinking they would, but they just put out more of these cheap junky tablets.
Were the batteries replaced as part of the refurbishment process or are we looking at 3 yr old batteries?
Staff: I would also like to know about whether the battery is new
I understand that the high performance tablet market was getting too competitive to maximize profit so Amazon turned to low cost mostly reader type tablets where they might have better success. I did love the quality of the HDX series too but the HDX tablets were not cheap…
I really need a new tablet. Never had a fire, just a Samsung Wi-Fi. Why should I buy this one for $170 and not a 3rd,4th or 5th generation 7 or 8 for $80 bucks? I don’t really need a super screen for movies.
While the this tablet has better resolution, a more powerful processor and a little bigger screen, you should be happy with the fire 8 for $80, if money is an issue. I have the fire 8 and like it, but feel the maximum volume is not all that loud. Of course ear buds will take care of that limitation.
Because the quality went seriously downhill.
Look, when you get a Kindle Fire, you’re not getting a full Android tablet. It’s locked down to a degree. You may as well pay for good hardware and a good screen instead of junky junk junk. You may not think you need that nice screen, but if you use it for a while and look at the newer screens you will choke and cry at the difference. Let alone the other aspects.
