Kindle DX – update

I was just asked by a colleague if I would recommend the Kindle DX.

I wrote about the Kindle DX a couple of years ago, shortly after I got mine. In the two years since, the collection of books on it has grown somewhat – several hundred books and white papers, a mix of technical & fiction. Imagine the size of box needed to carry that lot around! I may have to start pruning, as I’m running a bit short of space now…

I see that it is now down to US$200 – about half the price I paid, which makes it a bit of a bargain. Of course, I haven’t yet tried it head-to-head with a newer Kindle, but I have just ordered a 7″ Fire HD, and will be giving it the once-over before passing it on to the family for them to abuse…

Just one thing I regret – ordering the external power supply. It’s a standard USB job, and, if you’re like me, you’ll have dozens of them already. Save your cable money, spend it on books instead.
