Title : Kindle Voyage, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Adaptive Built-in Light, PagePress Sensors, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers
ASIN : B00IOY8XWQ


Kindle Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever, with the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display, plus reimagined page turns and an adaptive front light.

Hero Image

Brilliantly crisp display

New—The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and match the feel of paper. Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle.

Effortless page turns

New—PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback. PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn, and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive.

Light that adjusts with you

New—Kindle Voyage can be read in bright sunlight or total darkness—and it’s smart enough to know the difference. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Remarkably thin design

Improved—At just 7.6mm thin, Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever. Comfortably hold Kindle Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions. Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.

Expanded X-Ray

X-Ray’s new timeline view lets you easily flip through notable passages to remind yourself of what’s happened in the book, or navigate easily through images. X-Ray lets you explore the “Bones of the Book.” See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest.

Consumer Review
Almost like Paperwhite v1 all over again
I’ve got mixed feelings on this one, unfortunately. This review is coming from a kindle enthusiast who has owned or used nearly every variation of the device since the 1st generation.

Size & Weight

It’s noticeably smaller and lighter than the Paperwhite. When I saw the specs it didn’t really strike me as something that would make much difference to me, but in real life it’s actually great. The Voyage fits into a few of my coat pockets that the Paperwhite was just a little too big to fit into.

Origami Cover

I know there’s a separate product page for the origami cover, but it’s worth mentioning here as it is the “official” cover. The origami cover is ugly and I was skeptical, but I actually love it. It’s weird because it opens by flipping over the top like a notepad. This actually makes it more comfortable to hold when the cover is open, in my opinion. It’s hard to describe, but there are a lot more ways to hold the Voyage when it’s…

Consumer Review
More evolutionary than revolutionary, but worth the upgrade
This is the fifth e-ink Kindle reader that I’ve bought. My wife and I were early adopters of Kindle, and when we buy a new Kindle, the old one goes to the next niece or nephew in line. I loved the original Paperwhite, with its small size, touch screen, front-lighting, and virtual keyboard. The all-new Paperwhite is a definite step up, and for me, it was worth the move, but others will have to decide for themselves. If you read a lot, and you don’t already have one of the newer e-ink Kindles, it’s definitely worth upgrading to the Paperwhite. If you have the original Paperwhite, the upgrade is well worth considering. Although I’ve only had the new Paperwhite a few hours, I’m already glad I upgraded. Here’s a summary of my initial impressions of the new Paperwhite.

SIZE: It’s the same size as the original Paperwhite – 6.7″x4.6″x0.36″. The weight has been reduced slightly from 7.8 ounces to 7.3 ounces. The Paperwhite is very comfortable to hold in one hand, which is how I…

Consumer Review
Good as a first Paperwhite, not worthy of an upgrade
This review is for the second generation Kindle Paperwhite. Like all kindle e-readers before it, this is a great product. However, I am a bit disappointed as there is not a huge improvement over last year’s model. For this review, I focused on features and enhancements exclusive to the new Paperwhite and tried to make comparisons to last year’s model. Also, I found somethings misrepresented or confusing in the advertising, so I will try to clear them up.

HARDWARE

Design – The Kindle white has a nice look and shape. It fits well and is easy to hold in one hand. It’s fairly light, so it doesn’t tire the hands too much. I can grip it for long periods before having to switching hands. Its design is very similar to the previous Paperwhite – almost identical. The height and width are the same, the buttons are in the same location, and although this version is slightly lighter, it is not noticeable.

Display – Although not a huge improvement from last year’s…

maternity girdle
I bought this for my daughter in her 7th month of pregnancy. She liked the look and what the girdle could do for her. It provided light support but she said she preferred the maternity belt provided better support.

Way too small
My pre-pregnancy size is 6-8. I ordered size Medium of this belt, it was very very tight on my thighs. I returned it. I would go for only a belt not that style of short/underpant with belt cuz this one is a bit bulky and a problem when u use the bathroom more frequently specially at the last trimester.

Load Capacity: 400 lbs. (159kg)
Excellent price for an excellent chair
We needed a way to get my 90 year old, 145 lb. mother from her downstairs apartment to our residence upstairs, as her knees are very athritic and she couldn’t take the stairs. We purchased this chair right before Thanksgiving and have used it on numerous occasions already. You obviously need 2 strong people to lift the person in the chair, but the chair itself is lightweight so it doesn’t add on extra pounds. Be advised that you will probably need to put a pillow behind the small of the person’s back because you are lifting and leaning the chair back when you go upstairs, etc. and at least for a 90-year old, it was uncomfortable without the pillow. But I highly recommend this chair especially for the price, as the actual version used by ambulances, etc. is thousands of dollars. This was definitely worth the money.
