I am very pleased with this product, spent the week-end reading on it, love the fact that I went with the 3G so I can shop for books anywhere on the go without bothering with Wi-Fi. Fonts are crisp and the backlight works great, annoying stuff like other readers annotations can be turned off, this device will pay for itself within a year and save me trips to the bookstore and the clutter of having physical books.

I purchased the Kindle Paperwhite 3G because it has a free 3G connection, no screen glare from the sun, a nicer and brighter screen than previous Kindles, not to mention cheap Kindle books and generous weeks of battery life. I also own an iPad but it has screen glare, limited battery life, limited to wifi connections, etc so the kindle is much more situated for reading books on the go.

Sadly the first kindle I was shipped had a solid white dead pixel in the center right of the screen. It was distracting and ugly, and definitely not what you want when you drop $200 on a new device. Fortunately Amazon has great customer service and excellent return policies, and I was shipped a replacement immediately. The replacement arrived in 2 days, and is in perfect working order. There does still appear to be a few small pixels that are ever so slightly discoloured, but its practically imperceptible so not really a big deal. I think it has to do with the nature of E-Ink screens, they are not necessarily ideal but definitely worth it on the Kindle for the amazing battry life. The quality of the image on the screen is really good though. It's probably also worth mentioning this is my first Kindle but I have seen them from family members, this one is a lot nicer than the older ones.

Pros:
-Weeks of battery life thanks to e-ink screen technology
-Vastly improved screen quality over previous Kindle, no screen glare, better than a generic tablet or ipad (for reading)
-Free 3G wireless is super handy for any number of situations. I'm not sure what the travel limitations are or what company(s) Amazon partnered with for the 3G, but I'm sure it probably works in most major metropolitan areas in North America. I'm in Vancouver, BC and it works great.

Extremely light, easy to read. My old Kindle was 6 years old and died last week!
I love love love this new one.
The only thing is I preferred the old kindle's way of changing paging and going back.
This one is slightly annoying, but I will get used to it I guess.

I never thought I would make the switch from physical books to a Kindle or any other electronic reader. However, when I could no longer hold a book, I had to try the Kindle and I'm so glad I did! What makes this model extraordinary is the ability to look up word meanings, see what others have commented, and more. It was heavier than I had hoped, but the lap table I bought will mean I don't have to hold it at all. Going forward or backward is easy, the adjustable lighting is great, and you can adjust the size of the font, plus a lot more I haven't discovered yet! The bottom line is, I love it!

For those who are just looking for a pure reading experience the new Kindle Paperwhite is clearly above the crowd. The no glare screen is awesome.

I've been using my kindle paperweight for a while now and have gotten great value from it. I had an early ebook reader a few years ago that just didn't work for me for various reasons and sent me back to physical books for years, but this device is exactly what I need. It's light for subway trips and to fit in my bag, and can be held with one hand for longish periods. The screen is very easy on the eyes indoor or out. The insta-download and insta-lookup of books on amz is dangerous for my wallet but very handy. Seeing other readers' notes is interesting. Overall the best compliment I can pay this kindle is probably that I don't think about it much, its now just a daily tool that I throw in my bag and go, knowing that it will do what it's supposed to well.

I also enjoy the fact that you can email word or pdf documents to the device, a it allows me to read various online texts when I'm commuting that I might otherwise be squinting at a phone screen to read.

Some of the features I hoped to use haven't come through for me. The kindle unlimited selection is very poor, from what I can see, and the fact that americans can "loan" their kindle books but we can't is very annoying, as usual it does feel like Canuck prime members are an afterthought. But those are amazon issues and don't affect the fact that I like the device a lot. The only other negative comment I'd make is that I'm getting nothing close to the battery life suggested in the product description, and have to charge it more regularly than I would ideally like. But I feel that's nitpicking a little.
