Every product you buy has to be tested out, so no point treating this as a special case. Takes all of 5 minutes to print the prepaid label and put it back in the box. If it’s small enough, you can even drop in your own mailbox (using USPS as an option). For UPS, over the course of 30 days, you won't be driving by an Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, or dozens of other places that will accept your packing for shipping? Even if you go to the local retailer it takes time to buy, try it, and return it. You make it sound as if Cowboom creates some special burden(s) that other buying options don’t. ALL buying options introduce burdens!
It says KINDLE FIRE D01400: Amazon announced an Android-based tablet with a color touch screen on September 28, 2011. It was released for $199 and has a 7-inch IPS display. This is the first Kindle without an E Ink display. The unit is capable of holding over 80 applications, plus either 10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books. Its web browser is the Amazon Silk cloud-accelerated browser. However, unlike previously released Kindles, it has no 3G option, but only has Wi-Fi. The Kindle Fire also lacks a microphone, camera, and an SD card reader. It has 8GB of storage and a projected battery life of up to eight hours
They can put an SD slot on every android phone but somehow most tablets, which are larger than a phone, don't have them. Annoying. With an SD slot, this becomes 32 gigs.
5 - Some scratches and/or signs of use.
Anyone seeing better?
Overall, I've had good luck with condition 5.

If only it had access to the new Kindle "Freetime" for kids, I would buy it!
Agreed. Our 3 year old has a Gen 1 Fire with a cracked screen (I bought it refurbed a year or so ago for $129) and it sucks not having Freetime. Probably going to spring for a new fire for $150 or whatever, just for Freetime.
I bought my wife a kindle fire a little over a year ago and her's was a refurb.
It looked brand new and works great. Now a little over a year, I think we might be starting to see the battery go. I'm not positive but maybe she just didn't charge it the last time when she thought she plugged it in.
Her's was $170 or $160 but I paid with Amex points on Amazon. So now that I see all these tablets, it is definitely overpriced at that number but she loves it. It works great for her.
She doesn't want a bunch of goofy crap and loves the interface on Kindle Fire more than the Android interfaces. (She has a droid incredible 2 that she loves as well).
She has started using her Asus VivoTab but hasn't really fully went to that for ereading/games because the kindle is just more portable and fits nicely in her purse.
My Nexus7 fits in my back pocket which is great. That's what makes these 7" tablets great - funny how Apple talks about the 1 handed Iphone but they miss the point of a mini-tablet.
If you get a clean one with a nicely working battery, then this is a great deal on a tablet/ereader. Amazon also has 1 free app a day that is stored on amazon site as well if you get a new tablet you can redownload it in the future for free..
