In short--the average is the average. I know people really, really want to believe you should just toss out X percentage of pointless negative reviews, but they're there on every high-profile product. It doesn't stop stellar high-profile products like iPads from hitting 4.5 stars.
Fair enough. For the record i'm no fanboy running to Amazons defence and have as yet never even owned a Kindle (I am however taking the plunge and have a PW on pre-order from the Amazon UK). If you look through the reviews though I have to say that the idiotic 1 star reviews as I described, far far outweigh the idiotic 5 star ones.
