Ehh. I wouldn't base a purchase based on this review. I'd read a spectrum of them, and try one out at a local store. My take - he expected an Ipad for $199. I don't have several of the problems he cited - the light leak, the problem with the back button, not being able to fit it in a pocket.
One has to assess what one wants in a purchase to see if the Fire fits. If only an Ipad will do, don't expect to pony up less than $500.00.
