2.0 out of 5 stars Great tablet… if you're American June 19 2013
By Salinger TOP 500 REVIEWER
Size Name:16 GB
The value of this tablet isn't in the form factor or price. For the same cost you can get many comparable tablets which give you access to the full Google Play store, not just the fraction of it that Amazon allows. The real value of this tablet, at least in the US and elsewhere, is that you get access to hundreds of thousands of movies, TV shows and music to stream all included in your Amazon Prime membership. …just not in Canada.

Oh yes, we have Prime as well, and we pay the same price for it as our American cousins, but we get nothing more than slightly speedier delivery. In the US they get the speedy delivery, the ability to borrow Kindle books for free and, as mentioned, access to hundreds of thousands of free streaming movies, TV shows and songs.

I understand the complexity of trying to negotiate media rights in Canada, it's not all Amazon's fault that it's so difficult. It is, however, Amazon's decision to charge us the same price for Prime membership while only giving us a tiny fraction of its functionality here. Prime is key to why the Kindle Fire HD is so popular in the US. Because of its useless nature here in Canada, there are far better tablet alternatives.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed July 26 2013
Size Name:16 GB|Verified Purchase
I was excited to get my Kindle Fire HD and even pre-ordered it. When I received it though I was very disappointed. The Canadian version is not really supported at all. I get the feeling that Amazon is not really interested in maintaining Canadian customers. You cannot download any apps except from the Amazon store, and even those are not all available to Canada. I can get fb and my email, but other than that it is mainly just a fancy e-reader. I tried to return it, but found that after 2 weeks they won't give a refund, so...I went out and bought a Kobo Arc and it works great. It loads apps and everything you would expect a tablet to do, not at all like the Kindle Fire HD. DO NOT BUY

1.0 out of 5 stars overrated tablet July 24 2013
By kikayc
Size Name:16 GB
I would still choose the nexus or iPad vs the kindle. There is not much content for this tablet compared to apple or Google. It does have high res but it is useless if you cannot stream any videos. The kindle`s selling point recalls is amazon prime but you don't really get anything here in Canada except speedy delivery. Paying $70 for prime is a rip off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Canadian customers BEWARE July 24 2013
Size Name:16 GB
Canadian customers cannot download FREE card games from the apps store. We get a message: because we don't have an American Credit Card. Amazon help line cannot help. They blame it on the vendor of the game. NOT TRUE ! I downloaded the same Karman card games on my Galaxy Tab 2 and then transfered it to my Kindle Fire !!! Imagine!!! No problem with Samsung Galaxy Tab and nothing but agravation with Kindle Fire for Canadian.
Perhaps Amazon's management will someday see the light for Canadian customers.

Size Name:16 GB|Verified Purchase
In addition to the other disappointments in the review, I am terribly disappointed with the three prime features for which I bought the machine:
1. Of what use are the Bookmarks? There is none as far as I can find
2. If one can actually tag, the instructions for it are well hidden.
3. After making one's notes throughout a book, one can stare at them all at once. But what good are they given that they cannot be exported. One is shakled to the macine. This problem is cleverly passed over in the promotions. This is my last purchase of anything from this shark infested company. Amazon does not appear to be aware that we customers have options. (Do they ever read our comments or is this merely a way to let us vent our frustrations, disappointments, and the ways we have been fooled, without bothering them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire does it all for a affordable price! June 17 2013
By JR
Size Name:32 GB|Verified Purchase
I have an iPad (9.5"), love it, does alot of cool things that I never use for an expensive price. Apple products are great (have lots of apple in the household), however, this device does everything I need for half the cost (equivalent $429 for iPad Mini 32 GB). My iPad has not been used by my family since I received the 32 GB Kindle Fire HD 7".

PROS - I haven't had the Fire very long but needless to say I am impressed with what I received for the cost. The product is thin, portable and light. It accually fits in some of my coat pockets. I am a avid kindle book purchaser and to be honest reading books on the Fire is much more enjoyable and easier than the iPad. The screen also great in glare/sunlight. There is an office suite for Microsoft products but I haven't used the software yet but impressed that it accually has it preloaded. I do believe if you want more office capability with you have to purchase the paid app which is around $11 I think. Love the dual band antenna WiFi, works great. Games are fun on this device, I have the NBA Jams app and it performs/looks great, controls are really functional (find them easier than the ipad). I watch Netfix and Crackle regulary on the Fire and the HD screen is great. What impressed me is how loud and clear the speakers are on this device when not using headphones. The start up time is minimal and actual normal operation of the device is fast. Camera does all I need it to do (Skype with family) and clear picture (I dont need it to take pictures, phone and camera does that). Plus I think people walking around taking pics with there tablets look hilarious so the fact there is no rear camera is of no concern to me (others may feel different). Can add multiple email accounts to the device (outlook and gmail on mine) and sync's contacts/calendars.

I love the tablet itself. I do feel however that it is merely a shopping device for Amazon and on top of that a shopping device for US citizens primarily. Read more
