I am looking for a deal on Kindle paperwhite. I have iPad but it hurt my eyes when I use it to read ebooks. I don't believe Kindle fire any version will do any better. Mad
No, it won't. e-ink is what you want.

Only kindle have e-link, none of kindle fire have e-link.

Kindle fire is just like JUNK, useless.

The DX is the 1st gen original non-pearl e-ink screen. The screen is not great.

Stay away from the 1st gen Kindle. The screen is terrible compared to the current Kindles.

The software has not been updated in years and does not support many features that the newer Kindles do. I doubt you can check out library ebooks with it.

Honestly, the oldest Kindle you want is the Kindle Keyboard as it recently got updates to support new features.

I don't understand what UNLOCKED means wrt this device? Doesn't Amazon provide the cellular service for free?
Some used/previously-owned Kindles were locked/blocked by Amazon at the request of the original owners. They do that when their Kindles get stolen/lost. I've had my Kindle stolen before and I requested Amazon to lock it. Actually, the person who stole it will still be able to use my Kindle but will definitely have very limited access to its features.

Seller has a similar deal on Kindle Keyboard. I want a Paperwhite BIG TIME, but I don't have the funds for it. Does anyone have any experience with the Kindle Keyboard??
Kindle Keyboard works great. Lighted cover allows great nightime reading experience.

Paperwhite is also quite good if you are lucky enough to get one with a balanced back light. Since backlight is always on, its a power hog compared to the Kindle Keyboard.

I'd save the money and get the Kindle Keyboard. It's compatible with Audible books as well. Something the Paperwhite isn't.

Can't comment on the damage. Honestly, I don't think I'd care if there was any damage to the case so long as the screen was good. I had one of these; paid retail for it and was super super happy with it. Eventually it was stolen; and I have since bought a paper-white.

The integrated backlit display of the paperwhite is really really sexy; but the touch screen mechanism gives a slight glare that wasn't present on this model.

If you like to read and can't afford/justify a new kindle purchase, I highly, highly recommend jumping on this. I also have prime, and the lending library feature is genuinely 'meh'. However, there are infinite classics in the public domain; and if you aren't morally against it, you can torrent thousands of books as well.

These things are *better* than reading on a book. They are just as easy on the eyes as reading on a book, but the thing is lighter, and you can read with one hand.

Not to mention, the free 3g saved my ass in Nicaragua one time when I was lost. The internet is slow, the browser is crap, but I was able to get information I needed. Free 3g in so many countries is sort of insane.

Tempted to pick one up and hack it into a modem; at this price I don't really care if I get shut down.
I've liked the borrowing feature. Last 3 months I borrowed the hunger games. That way I haven't had to pay for them.you just need to find books you would like

How long does the battery last on the cover though? And what batteries does it use? Recharge my paperwhite maybe once a month...use it pretty much at night

Lighted cover uses the Kindles power. Works great and lasts longer than the Paperwhite. I'm just glad my paperwhite works so well. It's not like I'm far from a plug. And I have plenty of Kindles to read while one is recharging.

Thank you for your response.

Would I be better off spending a little bit more and get the base model kindle? I believe its $69 on Amazon.

Again, thank you for responding to a noob =)

The Paperwhite battery lasts amazingly long considering the backlight is constantly on when reading.

is $50 great for a kindle keyboard 3g? people went crazy over the kindle 2g for 35$. this one is only $15 more and is a newer generation and has free 3g. why arent people freaking out about this deal? it could be that the title doesnt state the kindle keyboard for 50, just the dx
