Sure, Kindle 3 had its niggles, but overall it was a really, really balanced product. After that Amazon split the product family eventually three-ways and to get, today, what you got in Kindle 3, you have to choose between $69 Kindle, Paperwhite and the Fire (for audio books), neither really as complete, as no-compromises e-reader as the Kindle 3 was. Maybe the PW can eventually get there once they sort out its niggles, and the Touch was pretty good, but still I feel like as a fan of Kindle, my purchasing decisions have been harder since the fourth generation - and not just because there is more choice, but because Amazon chose to make new and different compromises in various models.
