Consumer Review
Nice Tablet with Sharp Display
To sum up what I will tell you about in the details below, for $229 you are getting a good deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $199 for last year’s first-generation Fire HD and the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of the iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and the new HD Fire. If you are a first-time tablet buyer, where price vs. value is a key consideration, or if you are looking for an affordable tablet for the kids, I’d recommend the “regular” Kindle Fire HD that is only $139. If you’re comparing last year’s HD model to this version and it is operating fine, I’d say save your money and continue to get your money’s worth out of that one.

Consumer Review
The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the King of all Tablets!
I’ve own probably a dozen tablets including several versions of iPads, Android Tablets, and Windows Tablets. In my opinion, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is the king of all tablets. It combines awesome specs, great performance, a great user experience, a great ecosystem, and a great amount of value. While it does miss a few features offered on other tablets, and its ecosystem still may come in behind that of the iPad, I believe the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the best available tablet on the market.

✔ HARDWARE:

The HDX 8.9′s build is solid and sturdy. Its light weight and size makes it easy to hold without creating hand fatigue. The body is covered in material that provides a reliable grip. This is unlike my iPad Air which I find quite slippery. The HDX 8.9 is also a bit smaller and weighs a bit less than the iPad, making it easier to hold for long periods of time.

The HDX 8.9″ offers one of the fastest, if not the fastest processors available in a…

Great Value for $139
I’m writing this review with the benefit of being an experienced Kindle Fire user vs. someone brand new to the Kindle family. In summary, for $139 you are getting a good deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of the iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and last year’s Fire.

Consumer Review
HD Fire 6 is great for the price!
For the low price, this tablet really does more than expected! The camera isn’t great; however, I always use my phone for a camera so that doesn’t effect me. Here are some of the pros and cons:

Pros: Low cost yet high tech
Great screen quality (of course there is better out there, but it looks great as is)
Smooth and responsive
Easy access to amazon prime content
Easy to wirelessly share content to a TV
Battery life
