Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"If you don't have a compatible TV, you will have to purchase the adapter."
_
"Since this is a known problem, the new adapter should have been sent with ALL HDX purchases."
_
"The only way to display HDX content on your TV is to have a TV already set up for Miracast or buy a wireless Miracast adapter (like the crappy Netgear one)."
_
"FYI, unfortunately Google Chrome USB adapter, Wi-Fi based, does not work from what I understand with this version of Kindle HDX 7"
_
"If a person has the desire to see their Kindle displayed on a large screen the choice might be best to buy the older Kindle Fire HD model that has an HDMI Jack built in because the HDX model does not have that Jack and requires a brand new TV or an adapter for an older TV that does not work well according to other reviews."
_
"Had a problem with the plug in adapter or charger, called Amazon, and they sent me out a replacement and they were prompt."
_
"Kindle works good however power adapter went out in 4 days contacted Amazon to see of I can get another adapter they said no would have to return entire ki die due to seller refuses to just send another adapter."
_
"Well, my old Kindle stopped charging (adapter wouldn't connect to pins)."
_
"When I bought this Kindle I was told that I was would be able to connect to the Mormon channels and I've yet to be able to figure out if I need an adapter or what is needed to be able to watch streaming from the Mormon channels."
_
"Charger adapter was non operational out of the box and Amazon mailed out an upgraded adapter right away with absolutely no hassle or question."
_
"I contacted customer service and have received 3 new chargers including the power fast charging adapter for free over the past 11 months, which is great."

Advertising

Advertising:
"I replaced a Nexus 7 with this model to trt something different...the main problems I have with this model are the Advertising that constantly pops up, it is annoying to say the least!"
_
"The reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the 'advertising' is annoying."
_
"So let me get this straight: I buy the Kindle for $199 from Amazon, then I buy the books from Amazon, yet that's not good enough for these greedy pri..ks, they want to goad me (and you) into buying MORE stuff - from 3rd party vendors, who PAY Amazon more money to inundate and irritate its customers with even more advertising?"
_
"Very disappointed by Amazon's false durability advertising."
_
"Also disappointed at how aggressive the advertising is."
_
"Hate that my device is their mobile advertising."
_
"Basically it is very good, but I don't think advertising camera capability is good as it is not possible to take pictures with the device unless one is very skillful at shooting a picture while holding the device backwards."
_
"Please lay off on the advertising."
_
"Very disappointed by Amazon's false durability advertising."
_
"If you cannot afford to replace an item like this, think hard about getting it in the first place because despite their recent advertising about how DURABLE the Kindles are, mine absolutely SHOULD NOT have been damaged from that short fall."
_
"I opted for the device with advertising to save a few bucks, and it's not annoying to me."

"However, it takes me 4 or 5 attempts to create a highlight, and 4 or 5 swipes to get the menu at the top of the screen for changing the font or searching the text to appear."
_
"The white font on a black background is very difficult to read and I'm not able to enlarge it on the home page or menus."

_
"I was able to add this to my home network for WiFi only without any problems."

"The only drawback is that I purchased the Wi-Fi only, should have invested in the Optional 4G LTE access, that that would have been perfect but still not complaining about the tablet...it's great for what I need and works perfectly on my home network...if you are in the market for a high quality tablet this one certainly makes the mark and I highly recommend that you consider it in your search options."

_
"Hard to take video or picture of anything other than a selfie."
_
"I would not highly recommend this primarily due to the front-only facing camera; I saw this factor when ordered but didn't really comprehend that you can't take decent pictures with just a front facing camera (other than a selfie) because you need to turn it around and can't see to focus the picture; this is probably OK for folks who video conference and don't take pix."
_
"A selfie fanatic could probably have a lot of fun with it."
_
"My 8 year old son love's it except you can only take pictures as a selfie, so if you want to take a picture of an object you have to aim it while keeping your head out of the way."

"I will recommend it for those who only wanted to take a selfie for the camera part."

"Then, after about 10 months right before the warranty expires I started having big problems with it."
_
"Took three separate attempts to finally achieve warranty replacement."
_
"I guess I just recommend warranty due to not lasting and working to last like it should."
_
"The warranty is wonderful so 2 of them were replaced for free."
_
"They sent me another Kindle recharger, free of charge, and reminded me if the cord wasn't the problem that I had a year warranty on my Kindle."
_
"Although the problem started well before the one year warranty period expired, of course by time I pulled the paperwork and figured out that the source of the problem was with the kindle and not the charger it was just past the one year warranty."
_
")I didn't buy the extended warranty because I had confidence that it was a quality product."

Window:
"I REALLY LOVE IT.. ONE FAULT THE CAMERA IS HARD TO TAKE PICTURES,,,, SO I WISH THE CAMERA HAD A WINDOW..."
_
"The wifi is weird, once you turn it on and select your connection the log in window does not appear, you have to go into the internet and hope it pops up which it doesn't always."
_
"I'm so frustrated with it right now I want to throw it out my window."
_
"Unfortunately the window for returning the device has closed."
_
"I've even had to use the Skype or help me I'm confused window, with a kindle help person on the other end."
_
"It just shows a blank screen in my email window.....weird......but overall....."
_
"Please guys help going to throw out window already ave stuffed downloaded."
_
"Had a question about operation and within 10 seconds of clicking on the help icon, a live person pops up in a small window and answers my question in a quick and easy way."
_
"So I'd go back to reading something and sliding their little window around on my HDX... which got old pretty fast."

Windows

Windows:
"My only drawback is my knowledge of Windows, and the Apple interface on the iPhone and iPad, so navigating the Android operating system was a bit tricky."
_
"It also doesn't seem to be much you can do the in the way of rearranging things the way you want them(All of which I can do on my cheap, most basic Windows Smart Phone) Something seems wrong with that."
_
"My only disappointment was not being able to open two windows at the same time, not sure if there is a way to do that."
_
"Any of the typical tablet basics apply here and the amazon marketplace has just about all of the android apps I missed from switching from a Droid to a Windows Phone this past year."
_
"She's pretty great on her computer, but it's tough to travel with, and way more than she needs, plus she gets confused by the ridiculous windows errors."
_
"There's a lot of nice Windows tablets out there, but anything in my price range (200-400) had problems, if it was a high res screen and crappy processor, or a speedy prossesor and a cruddy screen resolution, or even if the item was out of stock or a bad operating system, I had never considered the kindle fire HDX."
_
"Like it very much works great not like Windows it just works like it should"
_
"As a tablet it doesn't work nearly as well, nor as smoothly, as my Dell Venue Pro 8 running Windows 8.1."
_
"Nor does it share stuff with my Windows Phone, Desktop or laptop computers very well."
_
"I can access all of that on my windows laptop or Google device as well, but kindle fire makes everything fit together easier, sleeker and sexier."
_
"I bought a Samsung tablet just to try something different and also because I love my Samsung Windows 8 phone ,but i ended up returning it for this! "

Zoom

Zoom:
"Only complaint is I wish I could zoom in and out."
_
"Double tapping to zoom in typically zooms in too much and pinch zooming gets annoying when you have a lot to read a lot, because the zoom level resets when a page are turned."
_
"With this in mind, I keep sending messages to their suggestion box from my HDX in an attempt to get them to make a type of zoom lock possible so replica books are better to read."
_
"You can zoom in, but the resolution is so low you don't get a good image."
_
"Speed: 7 10For such great hardware specs, I find myself constantly disappointed with the lag I experience during a simple pinch and zoom procedure viewing pictures or PDF files."
_
"However, it would be nice if they implement a type of zoom lock for the Print Replica books."
_
"This HDX is wonderful, graphic novels look great on the HD screen although you can only read them vertically it really doesn't bother me, and there is a small zoom feature that will zoom in on one or two panels so that it's easier to read them."
_
"it can zoom in, on webpages, so they are easier to read."
