It's not the latest & greatest model but if you appreciate the physical buttons for page turning & menu, the amazing battery life, and the weight, & don't need backlight, touchscreen or color, this is a great deal. I paid more for a used shady craigslist deal recently for the same model (as a replacement for my grandma who has hand tremors and can't use touch screens very well, and wore out her og model). Buying another as a back up cause these are extremely hard to find now. Thanks op!

I have one of these from 6-8 years ago and it's fine. I don't use it very much because mostly use a Kindle Fire for playing Audible books, and I did get a paperwhite (1st or 2nd gen, not the latest gen). The paperwhite I think is better for reading if you need the backlight, of course. Depending on where you do reading, I guess.

But I've read that some people love these old Kindles and I do understand all the good points about infinite battery life (goes down after a while if not used, but still pretty good). As some posts mention, some prefer the hard buttons instead of a touch/swipe screen. This is more of a pure "book" Kindle experience. For this price I'd recommend, just to try it out. If you think you really want a backlight, wait for a paperwhite deal, but I'd agree that except for the light, this "ancient" model is better in some ways.

I'm not sure on the old "true" Kindles, I think you still get an ad for some Amazon book or product when it wakes up from "sleep" mode. But it's pretty unobtrusive.

In contrast, the color "fire" tables always go into sleep mode and usually put up ads for some pay-to-win tablet game. Or sometimes an Amazon video production. I gotta say the ads for the tablet games are annoying. Since those wouldn't work on the classic Kindles, they don't force those ads on you.

You can buy lightly-used kindles that are more modern for about the same price or a bit more on swappa.

Gotcha, but amazon used to have special offer deals only available on these tablets. It used to be valuable, but sounds like it's just bad ads now.

Yes, that is my experience from the Fire tablets -- just annoying ads now. I do remember the special deals. I think that's been replaced with some "Alexa-only" promos (i.e. you get a special deal if you ask Alexa to order it for you). Of course these Kindles don't have audio and don't support Alexa. So mostly on the B&W Kindles the ads are unobtrusive, just a display screen that clears when you wake it up with the buttons.

On the fire tablets, when I'm using for audiobooks, it's much worse, because I set it to listen and then it goes into sleep/ad mode (it's still playing audio which is fine), but when I want to do something like pause or rewind, I have to wipe to wake it up while it's showing some ad for one of the 9 million jewels or gems or kingdoms or conquest tablet games they promote.

This is actually one of the best models - it has physical buttons.
(Unlike PW which has annoying touch buttons only)
The only other model that has physical buttons is $350 kindle oasis - physical buttons are premium nowadays.
Oasis has an annoying accelerometer that flips the screen all the time without an option to disable it.
Also, the screen is much clearer here. PW and oasis both have a touch overlay sensor film which lowers the contrast.
This model is also easy to jailbreak and remove the special offers if you don't like them.

Yes, I think that's true, but some people like these old ones without the touchscreen. And the battery life is amazing on these due to the screen technology (i.e. it's so slow you can actually watch the screen changing in front of your eyes). But once it's changed to the new page it's using virtually 0 power (well, maybe nanoAmps).

I'd say get this as a 'Classic,' same as some people like old iPod music players. I'm sorry I traded-in or recycled my old iPods -- they're now something people collect and cherish, like an antique car (but electronics like this become antique after about 10 years... not 50 or 80).

The only risk is if Amazon stops supporting this generation of devices. I know they did have mandatory updates at some point, probably to fix some security issue. (I got notices to update your device or it won't connect anymore, for one of my older Fire tables). Of course we know Apple routinely discontinues support for old devices after a few years. But they are Apple so it is OK.

Typically, if you think that...we would appreciate a mod alert. We chase this stuff all the time trying to keep SD the best.

That said, I was browsing the thread because of the price and saw your post. I took a peek, nothing bad seems to be going on here.

Can this model be hacked to display only weather 5 day forecast? If not, which models can?

What different audience? The "audience" is the same, those who read e-books on an e-book reader instead of a tablet. Already that is a very narrow audience. The paperwhite has been as low as $70 recently.
I would say the target audience for this model is ppl like me who don't like touchscreens. I wish paperwhite comes without touchscreen and physical buttons.

Usually around black Friday or Prime Day, Amazon will offere a "trade-in" option for kindles. It's usually a credit for the kindle and 25% off the price of any new kindle. The minimum is a $5 gift card. If you were to trade this in, you could get a ~$200 kindle for $145 (applying the value of the gift card too).

I know it seems like a lot of hoops to jump through, but you could always use this kindle as a backup or travel until you wanted to exchange it for something better.

Just a thought.
