In an attempt to add some value/input to the conversation, I've purchased all of these new kindles and tried them out. I feel the best bang for the buck is the Voyage. Beyond price, I feel the screen is the best. There are a lot of issues with the screens all throughout the Kindle line, with regard to fading from yellow to blue, or vice versa, as well as shadows being cast by the LEDs, but Voyage looked the cleanest and most uniform to me. And I like the auto-adjust light as well, though I can see a good argument of this function being a bit overkill/unnecessary.

I thought the Oasis would be the fulfillment of my ereader dreams, but surprisingly, it had the worst quality control issue: the screen had multiple dead pixels, to an extreme point. The one handed operation was very nice, but the $300 price tag was too much, considering the Voyage has the same quality screen, with the nice seamless screen-to-bezel design.

The entry level Kindle was far too dark of a screen, with no ability to adjust. The Paperwhite is nicer than the base, but the shadows/lighting effect from the LEDs was too much. In addition, after using the Voyage, it was hard to go to the raised bezel of the Paperwhite .

Ultimately, the reason I didn't keep the Voyage was due to the somewhat sluggish operation as a whole, and outright unusable when viewing a PDF, as compared to the Kindle app on a tablet/phone. I realize that is how ereader's are, but no doubt they've got be working on a better nextgen. I told myself once the next big sale came about--like this one--I'd buy the Voyage again, but as one comment noted, this big sale is probably due to new ones coming out soon.

Probably not through Amazon (although try through chat as this is "their" product).

If that fails, hopefully you used a credit card and can do a price protection claim. :-)
