Snow Joe Snow Ultra Selectric Thrower

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower

This is why a great gift for the man, or woman, in your life is a Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower. This is a great gift for Christmas 2013 for many reasons. When the snow falls, it is up to the men of the house to go out and start shoveling the snow. This isn’t always the case of course, but someone has to do the snow shoveling and it is not a task many people like. When a person shovels snow, they run the risk of injury and even heart attack because of the effort involved.

Features of The Snow Joe Snow Ultra Selectric Thrower

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow ThrowerFirst of all, it features an instant start feature that makes it much easier to start even when the engine is cold. Compact, it will easily fit in the garage and with the easy push button switch; you can get everything moving without a problem.

One of the nicest features is the 20-watt halogen light, which will keep the path in front lighted even when the snow is blowing.

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow ThrowerThe Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower is built to handle deep snowfalls and big driveways, allowing for ease when clearing paths through the snow. In all, it can throw 720 pounds of snow per minute and cut a path of 18 inches wide and 10 inches deep with each pass. The scraper blade will also allow for easy clearing of the snow without putting your body and muscles to the test.

Usability of The Snow Joe Snow Thrower Ultra Selectric

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow ThrowerThis Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower is also powered by electricity, not gas, which makes it much lighter to move around. This also means you won’t run out of gas halfway through removing the foot of snow from your driveway. With the price of gas these days, this also saves you money because you won’t have to worry about filling it up every time you need to run it. Not to mention, if you don’t live near a gas station, and there is three feet of snow on the ground, how are you supposed to even get to the gas station to get gas to power the Snow Joe Snow Ultra Selectric Thrower? Electric is definitely the best option here.

The discharge chute can rotate for 180 degrees and the chute deflector can be adjusted to whatever height that you may need it at.

Pivot wheels on the Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower also make it easy to move through tight areas and the compact shape makes handling much easier.

Why Give a Snow Joe Snow Ultra Selectric Thrower

Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Selectric Snow Thrower It may seem like an odd gift to give to someone for the Christmas season 2013, but in reality it can be an excellent gift. Removing snow is not an easy job but it must be done. Using a snow shovel doesn’t always work great, and that can result in you not wanting to remove the snow, or your loved one not wanting to remove it.

By getting a high quality Snow Thrower, you can remove the snow easily without any backbreaking effort. All you need to do is to start it up with its instant start technology, and begin removing snow quickly and easily.

What Others Say About The Snow Joe Snow Ultra Selectric Thrower

The Snow Joe SJ623E 15-Ampere Ultra Electric Snow Thrower with Light has a 4.7 out of 5 star rating at Amazon.com. Here is a sample of some of the reviews:

“I live in North Central Wisconsin, with all the winter weather adventures that this entails. This little guy is great for just about anything you’re going to need it for.”

“I am 80 years old, and this electric snow blower worked better than expected. I cleared my own snow with minimum effort, and in a very short time. Better than expected, and then some.”
“I got the 15-amp Snow Joe to replace a gas-powered snowmower and it is just perfect for the 4-6″ of snow we typically get in Cincinnati. Its even pretty good with the wet stuff, though it loads up with slush if you’re not careful. My gas-powered unit (5 HP) is too big and unwieldy and needs a new carburetor almost every year. The Snow Joe is a bit heavy, but easy to drive and tracks straight so you don’t have to wrestle with it. And no blasted carburetor!”

Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket-Man’s Review

Everyone wants to look cool and since the days of Fonzie on Happy Days, the leather jacket has been the look of something that is cool. For Christmas 2013, if you are looking to get the man in your life a nice gift, you can’t go wrong with a Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket. This jacket is top of the line, and no lesser quality here.

Features of the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

Made with 100 per cent lamb leather, the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket features side-entry pockets, and open bottom, and is dry-clean only to maintain the quality.
Made of smooth lambskin, one of the biggest benefits of the Cole Haan leather jacket is that it does not have a heavy weight like you get with cowhide leather. Lambskin leather is also highly durable, ranking as durable as cowhide in most cases.
A great deal of pride goes into every single jacket. Extra detailed stitching and seams help to set the jacket apart from other jackets. There are two pockets inside the jacket, and two outer pockets. The interior of the jacket is polyester quilted material and a quality YKK zipper is used.
What all this shows is that Cole Haan does not cut any corners when they are making their jackets.
One important thing to remember is that lambskin does not handle water well. If you choose to buy the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket for someone this Christmas 2013, you should also look at getting a leather milk water protector to keep stains from appearing on the jacket when the person wears it.

History of Cole Haan

Based out of New York Cit/y, Cole Haan creates unique products that look great on anyone. From shoes and outerwear to accessories and jackets, Cole Haan creates products that are timeless.
Cole Haan was founded in 1928 in Chicago, Illinois. The name of the company came from founders Trafton Cole and Eddie Haan. Originally a men’s footwear label, today they offer many different products for outdoor use. In 2012, Apax Partners Worldwide bought Cole Haan for $70 million from Nike. Currently, the company is headquartered in Scarborough, Maine, with a design center in New York City. The company continues to do well and many choose to shop from it thanks to the quality of the merchandise sold.

Why Purchase the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

If you are thinking of buying something for that special man in your life, and you want them to look great, then you can look at getting a Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket. These jackets are very well made and have a high approval rating on Amazon.com. Many people choose Cole Haan because of the high quality of the products that are made in China. Detailed stitching shows that these jackets are of the highest quality. Yes, they can be expensive but you are paying for the high quality of the jacket. When your loved one can wear this jacket around and feel like a million dollars, you will feel good that you chose to get them this gift for Christmas 2013.

What Other Say About the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

The Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket currently has a 4.8 start rating at Amazon.com. Owners of this stylish Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket have this to say about it

“Just picked this jacket it up and I love it. Made of smooth and silky lambskin, it lacks the heavy weight of cowhide leather, with only a small durability penalty. Cowhide is really only recommended if you ride motorcycles and need the durability. A last piece of advice, whether you buy this jacket or another one: leather is one of those commodities in which you truly get what you pay for. So don’t skimp. Good leather jackets start at $500(MSRP) this is a hell of a deal – full retail is $700, and Amazon has it for hundreds less”
“The jacket is well made and the leather very soft. The stitching details set it apart from the plain leather jackets of similar types. It has a quilted lining and was a bit heavier than I expected but offers more warmth than a typical leather jacket. You can not beat the value for the price”
“I bought this coat for my hasband and he was very happy when got it!
The leather is very soft and price on Amazon was very right!”

Where to Purchase the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket

Reviewers of the Cole Haan Men’s Smooth Leather Jacket mentioned what a great deal they had found at Amazon.com. At the time of this review there was a 56% saving over the regular retail price. It is delivered right to your door with Free Shipping.

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike

Review of the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike

Have you seen the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike? Until recently, I hadn’t either.  Over the past two weeks, my family has been suffering from mountain bike frenzy.  My mother and father in law decided that after Christmas, they were going to treat all of us to a weeklong vacation at one of their favorite camping spots. Knowing that we didn’t have mountain bikes for the kids, they purchased two mountain bikes for the kids as early Christmas gifts. Since my husband wanted me to be able to go as well, he even purchased a Schwinn mountain bike for me as well. Now that we all have new bikes, I noticed we had one problem – my husband had new bike envy.

Now, my husband hasn’t said anything, but every wife knows the look that their husband gives when they really want something.  While we were looking for bikes for me, I noticed he kept looking at the Diamond 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike. Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to purchase it without him knowing, I asked his parents if they would purchase the bike for me on my behalf. Everything seemed to be going well with it being the perfect Christmas gift…until it was delivered to the house – oops! Once my husband saw the box for this bike, there was no way I was getting it out of his hands. After a week of riding this bike, here is what my family thinks of the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike.

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike: Assembly

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain BikeFrom the moment that this bike arrived I knew there was no way my husband would let anyone else put his bike together. My husband is one of those people who loves bringing his mountain bike to trails on weekends and doing races. The last thing he was going to do was allow anyone to touch his new baby. Like most high quality bikes, the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike isn’t a bike that should be put together by people who have never built a bike. It comes in quite a few pieces and needs a good set of Allen wrenches. It took my husband a little over two hours to put his bike together, spending quite a bit of time dealing with the derailler. If you are wanting to have the bike ready for Christmas and you have never assembled a bike, I highly recommend bringing it to a bike shop and paying the $30 to have it assembled. Most bike shops are happy to do it for you and some will even deliver it to your house!

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike: Quality

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain BikeWhile I don’t know a great deal about bikes, my husband has been talking non-stop about the quality of this bike. He loves that the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike is made using a quality aluminum frame, has easy fire shifters, and a has Promax alloy linear pull breaks with Shimano levers. He is a big fan of Shimano and believes that they make the best biking parts. The bike not only looks beautiful but has wonderful traction, making it one of the best mountain bikes my husband has owned in a very long time.  When my husband first saw the bike, he couldn’t believe that Amazon was selling this quality bike at such a low price for the holiday season.

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike: Usability

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain BikeFrom what I have seen my husband absolutely loves his Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike. He has been very happy to show off his brand new black bike and loves bragging to his friends about how easily it goes over obstacles and still keeps its speed.  It even does a great job on mud since it doesn’t sink in like most bikes (my husband says this is due to the 29″ wheels). What I think my husband loves the most about this bike is that it is just so comfortable.  When I asked him about the bike, he said it has an ideal center of gravity, keeping it stable and safer for riders going at high speeds.  What I wasn’t expecting was for my husband to love the bike so much that he is now using it to ride to work.  All he did was buy commuter tires for the bike which he uses during the week. On weekends when he rides with friends, he just switches back to tires that are perfect for offloading and trails. In all honest, I think the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike was the best gift I have purchased in years for my husband!

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike: What Others Think

So far, my husband absolutely loves the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike. In all honesty, this Christmas gift couldn’t have gone better! My husband won’t stop talking about his new mountain bike and is out riding even more than ever.  On Amazon.com, where I purchased this mountain bike, it has a 4 star rating, making it one of the more popular men’s bikes on the site. Here is what others are saying about the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike!

” Got my 26″ Schwinn mountain bike stolen and decided to go bigger. Well, bigger is better! My friends can’t even keep up with me on the road with me using barely any effort at all. I can get to top speed and change the gears very quickly! It is absolutely amazing. I would buy this one over and over again. After my friends tried this Diamandback with the 29″ wheels, they are all convinced about upgrading there bikes. The components are great and the look is great. The only negative thing about the bike so far is the front forks are a little springy no matter how much i attempt to tighten them. I am 5’11, and I purchased the 20″ version.”

” Being that this is my first mountain bike, I didn’t know what to expect. Starting off with assembly, it was very easy. Only had to assemble front tire, handlebars, brake cables and seat. It only took about 20 minutes. You should probably buy some lube to use before you ride it for the first time. The first day I cruised around the street it was amazing! The brakes were instantaneous and the pedaling felt great, and the shifting was extremely smooth. I didn’t want to review it until I took it out on the trails for the first time. It handles very well and the suspension is solid and rolls over terrain quite easily. The only drawback I have is that the narrow paths is difficult because the tires are large but that’s only a small problem that I found compared to the unbelievable riding that I have enjoyed so far on this bike. For the price, I strongly suggest buying this bike before the winter comes so you can thoroughly enjoy it as I have.”

” I cannot tell you how awesome this bike is. I was never really a Diamondback fan because I had Diamondbacks growing up and they were all pretty dinky. But this, this is something to behold. My friends dad has a Specialist brand bike that he put $4,300 into and he told me that he wasted $4,000 when he tried my bike (well after he tried my bike…..I wasn’t home and apparently he took it out for a spin after my brother showed it off to him…..I don’t let people ride my bike when I’m not around). This bike is big and really mean looking! Most badass bike out there! I can’t put everything into words, just go find one and try it out.”

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike: Where to Purchase

When I first saw the Diamondback 2013 Overdrive V29 Mountain Bike, I immediately went to my local bike store to see if they could order it. Not only was it more expensive, but they said it would take six weeks for the bike to arrive.  That seemed silly when Amazon had it in stock and could have it shipped to me in less than a week. By purchase this mountain bike on Amazon I got the best price online, free shipping, and had it delivered in less than three days to my home. If you are looking to get this mountain bike for someone special for Christmas, I highly recommend purchasing it on Amazon.com!

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop

Review of Apple MacBook Pro MD101LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop

Have you been considering purchasing a Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop? Right before Christmas, my trusty laptop died on me. While I have a business laptop, it is very common for me to travel with my personal and business laptop when I go out to do errands or go to sporting events. I have also more than once enjoyed sitting on my laptop at McDonald’s while my kids play on the playground outside. Unfortunately, my fun days of sitting playing on my laptop ended when it finally died. Granted, my laptop was four years old and has been heavily used. Either way, losing my laptop right before Christmas has been a complete nightmare.

Knowing that I had to have a laptop, my husband and I decided to go laptop shopping. After searching for a bit online, I decided to take a risk and go with a Mac laptop. While I own many Apple products, I had never considered buying a Mac computer. Now that I without my computer, however, it seemed the perfect time to experiment with a new type of laptop. After searching for a bit online, I found the Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop on Amazon and had it sent overnight to my house. Here is what I think so far of my brand new Mac laptop!

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: Specs

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop When I first looked at the specs for my laptop, I was impressed that it had a fairly large 500 gig hard drive and a brand new 2.5 GHz dual core Intel i5 Processor.  Along with 4 Gigs of Ram, this means that you have a very fast laptop that is able to do just about anything you desire! You can even play many modern video games with the laptops Intel HD Graphics 4000 video card! While hardware may not mean a great deal to me, my husband was impressed that this was such a powerful laptop! What impressed me the most hardware wise, however, was the LED backlit display monitor. Most laptop monitors aren’t that great resolution wise, but the Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop uses 1280 x 800 resolution, allowing movies and pictures to look wonderful on this laptop!  Even the new Mac OS, Mountain Lion, is much easier to use than windows, allowing me to easily get to work with my laptop!

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: Look

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch LaptopLike most Apple products, the Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop has a beautiful and innovative look.  This beautiful, silver laptop is made out of one piece of aluminum, giving it a very smooth and professional look that is meant to show off. When the laptop is on, it also has a lit up Apple, which many people who own Macs knows is one of the signature features of an Apple laptop. Really, when I put this laptop next to my old black laptop, it makes my old computer look boring and bulky. Really, this is the type of laptop that is meant to show off when you are on the go, not keep hidden away because it looks ugly!

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: Usability

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch LaptopIf I had to pick one thing I love the most about my Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop it is the size. This laptop is one inch then and only 4.5 pounds, making it the perfect size to fit in most purses meant to hold laptops. While I was worried that having a computer this small would be unusable, it is actually much more convenient. I no longer have to carry around multiple bags and worry about keeping up with them, especially when I am also having to keep up with a diaper bag.

Another major selling point of the Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop in my eyes is that it worked perfect with other laptop products. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you know that it has a variety of useful features that are designed to increase your productivity and make life easier on you.  One of these features is Facetime. On my Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop, I have a 720p camera that is capable of talking to anyone with Facetime, including iPad and iPhone users! As you can guess, that can drastically lower long distance bills! Along with a long lasting 7 hour battery life, this Mac Pro laptop really is perfect for anyone who need a brand new laptop!

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: In The Box

  • Apple Macbook Pro MD101LL/A  13.3 Inch Laptop
  • Display Cleaning Cloth
  • 60 W Magsafe Power Adapter
  • AC Wall Plug
  • Power Cord
  • Printed and Electronic Documentation

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: What Other Think

So far, my family absolutely loved my new Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop. Really, I wish I decided to get a Mac laptop sooner, especially with how user friendly this laptop is compared to my old laptop. On Amazon.com, where I purchased my laptop, this Macbook Pro laptop has a 4.2 out of 5 star rating. Here is what people are saying about this innovative laptop!

” I purchased this Macbook about a week ago, and I have to say that I’m genuinely satisfied. I come from the high-end Windows laptop user base; my previous laptop was a Dell XPS. I thought the transition would be difficult at best and would take some time to fully familiarize myself with the new Mac ecosystem. If you are considering switching from a Windows computer, do it. I have no regrets. OS X is simply amazing, and while there is a learning curve if you’re coming from another OS, it’s easy as pie to understand. Everything just works on a Mac. With the exception of some games- but with Boot Camp you can install Windows on any Mac. And this MacBook looks as good as it performs. Simple details, crafted aluminum and real glass make this laptop blow away the other plastic ridden, bulky sticker filled laptops. This computer exceeds my expectations in almost every category.”

” I purchase the Macbook Pro 13.3-Inch Laptop about a week ago and the experience has been great. I was a little worry at first because I don’t have a lot of experience with os.x and windows has always been second nature to me after many years of using windows. For anybody that feels like switching from windows to apple let me tell you that it took me a couple of days to get used to this operating system but now I love it. First of all, the trackpad on the Macbook Pro is easy to use and after you learn all the gestures to use the trackpad you will see that this is a great way to use you computer. The computer itself is very well built and the keyboard is great to type on for a long period of time. Lastly, bootcamp is one of the main reasons I switch to Macbook Pro because you can run window 7 or any windows operating system you want on your Macbook Pro.”

” I have always preferred Windows to Mac, but now that i actually have one i really like the mac. This computer does everything i need it to do for school and more. Very fast compared to the Dells i’ve always had and very nice display. I love the gestures that the trackpad has. They make the computer so much easier to use compared to other computers and the operating system is very good. i still love the windows operating system but the operating system for this computer is just amazing. The only issue i have with this computer is the price of it but it is worth it especially if you need something that is good for school.”

Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop: Where to Purchase

While I could have gone to the Apple store to purchase my Apple Macbook Pro 13.3 inch laptop, I decided to purchase it on Amazon.com.  Why did I purchase it on Amazon? Well, for one it could be shipped right to my house overnight.  I wanted a laptop fast and saw that Amazon had the best price on the laptop that I wanted! As well, I really didn’t want anyone trying to sell me more than I really needed. At Amazon, I knew exactly what I was buying and felt confident knowing that if something went wrong with my laptop, I could ship it right back to Amazon without any issues. If you are planning on purchasing one of these laptops as a Christmas gift, I highly recommend purchasing it on Amazon!

Kindle Fire HD

Review of Kindle Fire HD

Kindle Fire HD
Have you been considering purchasing an 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD? For the past few months, I have been excited to get my hands on one of these new Kindles. While I have an iPad, I have been reading on my Kindle Fire for awhile now, finding it is much better when it comes to reading ebooks. Since I love this tablet as much as my iPad, my husband thought it would be a great early Christmas present for me, especially with a larger Kindle now on the market.

I have to admit, waiting for my new 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD has not been easy. We put it on pre-order back in September when it was first announced, and I have been waiting every since. I have to admit, I have never been so excited about a piece of electronic in my household. Now that it has arrived, I have spent a few days playing with this brand new tablet. Here is what I think so far of the new Kindle Fire HD.

Kindle Fire HD: Usability

Kindle Fire HD When I first looked at the specs of the new 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD, I was blown away at just how much better this tablet is compared to the original Kindle Fire. It has a 1.5 Ghz dual core processor and imagination Power VR 3-D graphics core, making it run not only fast, but beautifully when playing games or videos. Unlike most other tablet on the market, it is has an official Dolby sound system, allowing you to get the best sound possible when watching movies on your tablet.  I personally love this feature since it allows me to listen to all of my favorite music on the go.

Having used an iPad for years, I am also happy that the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD has both a rear and front facing camera. Having kids, I have found that I never know when the kids are going to be cute, allowing me to take a picture anytime, anywhere on my tablet.  While the front camera may sound like a gimmick, it really is perfect for people like me who work from home, especially since I use Skype to talk to my co-workers and potential clients. Really, the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD is perfect for anyone who is constantly on the go with kids!

Kindle Fire HD: Apps

Kindle Fire HD If you have kids, you will absolutely love all the apps that are available through the Kindle store.  So far, there are over 22 million different apps available for the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD, including games, ebooks, and other functional apps that are perfect for just about any busy lifestyle. This doesn’t count all the apps that are integrated into this tablet, including Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Pandora, and Angry Birds. In my household, Angry Birds gets most of the attention since my kids absolutely love playing this game. So far, we have over twenty different games that my kids have been playing on the Kindle Fire, some of them allowing my kids to play with multiple people online. From what I have seen, the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD seems to work better through our Wi-fi network than my iPad 3, being much faster and more reliable, making it perfect for gaming online!

Kindle Fire HD: Reading

Kindle Fire HD Since I own both a Kindle and a Kindle Fire, I had very high expectations for the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD. My goal was to have a media tablet that could replace my other two Kindles, allowing me to travel with one tablet when I was out with the kids. As someone who is constantly going to soccer games and other activities, it’s nice being able to have a tablet that works for everything and isn’t as costly at the iPad. I have to say that the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD new polarized filter and anti-glare technology is amazing for reading, allowing you to read or watch a movie on the Kindle Fire at any angle. I absolutely love this since this was the major issue I had with the original Kindle Fire – you had to hold it at just the right angle to be able to read outside. Now, it is easy to read just about anywhere on my tablet!

If I had to pick one thing I loved the most about the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD, it the lending library feature that comes with my Amazon Prime Memberships.  I am constantly checking out books with my Kindle Fire, allowing me to read not only the latest best sellers, but new authors who publish exclusively to the Kindle Fire. While I haven’t used it often, my daughter has used the X-Ray searching tool that is designed for textbooks. I had purchased some ebooks that were meant to help with her math skills, and from what I have seen, this feature is great at finding different definitions and examples in these texts. With all the different magazines and books available on the Kindle Fire, I don’t see how anyone could go wrong with this awesome tablet!

Kindle Fire HD: What Others Think

So far, everyone in my family loves the new 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD. We have been using it non-stop since Thanksgiving and can’t wait to use it more. Not only is it great at reading books, but watching movies and playing games. Right now, we are considering purchasing another Kindle Fire HD for my husband to help him keep track of all of his different ebooks. Currently, the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD has a 3.8 rating on Amazon, making it one of the most popular tablets on the market. Here is what other people are saying about this very popular tablet!

“if you are a PRIME subscriber, this device is a NO BRAINER. Get one ! If not, it is still a great take-along carry-around-the-house gadget, very well built, slim and light. Screen is very responsive, haven’t seen any lag in the Amazon ecosystem Android wrap and the browser is faster than I remember my iPad being. Maybe I am just overjoyed with the fact I spent so little with no great expectations and got this pleasant surprise. I do have one complaint (so far): the power and volume buttons are hard to find and to a certain point frustrating…I saw that in the 7″ and was hoping it would be better in the larger form factor but it is still something that needs improvement (Amazon, are you listening ?). About the ads…really ? I just skip them, so no problem for me. They are not intrusive as you my think, not at all. I am loving this purchase so far.”

“I have had my kindle fire hd for over a week now and i love it. I`ve also had a kindle keyboard and original kindle fire. Was not sure about purchasing the fire hd 8.9 at first but decided i wanted to try the larger screen so i pre-ordered it. I never did use the kindle fire one handed so the larger size of the fire hd doesn`t bother me. I love the hd screen and larger size. Fire hd feels very well constructed. I found it very easy to use but that may be because i had the kindle fire and so was not a first time user. It should still prove easy to use for someone who is new to kindle fire. Fire hd is very fast for surfing the web and watching prime instant videos. Display is incredible with hd content and sound is good for a tablet. I really like having the hdmi out port so i can connect it to my home theater. Some have complained about no charging light like the original fire so you can`t tell when it`s fully charged but while that is an annoyance it`s not enough for me to ding the fire hd in my review. Be careful how much trust you place in the overly negative reviews. A lot of them seem to have been written by, a – apple fan boys who feel threatened and so surf the internet writing negative reviews of competing products, b – people with unreasonable expectations i.e. did not fully read product description before purchasing, and lastly, c – people who are not reviewing the fire hd at all but are leaving negative reviews because they have a bone to pick with amazon. Lastly, just a thought about the lack of apps complaints. Amazon is a merchant not a developer, it is up to the developers to make sure their apps work with the fire hd.”

“This screen is AMAZING!!! Every time I look at it, I’m more impressed.”

“Overall this is a great device. Just get it and feel it in your hands and turn on the screen.Also remember anything made by man can malfunction and when you deliver stuff in high volume,some one can easily get a bad one.It happens with every company, even apple. This tablet is great!”

“Wow I must say that they didn’t lie about the better wi-fi! I’m picking up signals in areas I never did with the first fire or the other more expensive tabs. I’m liking this!”

Kindle Fire HD: Where to Purchase

I personally ordered my 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD from Amazon.com. Even though this was necessary for pre-ordering, I would have made the same decision even if it was on the market when I purchased it. One of the main reasons I purchase all of my electronics from Amazon is that they are a great price and have an amazing return policy if something goes wrong. Like all electronics, it’s possible to have something go wrong right out of the box; making it important you work with a company that is known for its great customer service and return policy. If something goes wrong with the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD, all you have to do is print out a return label and ship it back to Amazon. It really is as easy as that! With great prices and customer service, why would you do your Christmas shopping anywhere else?
