Kindle Paper white

I am considering buying a Kindle Paper white, an upgrade from the Kindle 3 that I have had for a couple of years. Last week i bought a Kobo Glo but had sever problems with it freezing and blank books when transferring books saved on my hard drive via Calibre. I went through 3 Kobo's and experienced this problem each time. I am a bit nearvous of having a similar experience with the paper white, has anybody else had this trouble? The Kindle 3 worked OK so I am at a loss to know why there was such a problem.

Paperwhite works fine with Calibre.

Kobo is known for their buggy software.

I've had no problems with my Paperwhite (aside from when the battery had drained too low once) since I got it after the WInter contest. The touch screen does take a little getting used to but I like it.

The Paperwhite is my first touch screen device and I like it very much. I've had the Kindle DX, Kindle Keyboard, and Kindle Basic and now I have my favorite, the Paperwhite. Everyone I know with a Paperwhite has just gotten one and found it to be fine. One fellow claimed he'd gotten five defective Paperwhites in two weeks. color me skeptical.

I not only like my Paperwhite but I like the Amazon Kindle Cover for the Paperwhite. It's great, in my opinion.
