For the price point I think it's a great buy. For folks who bought it under the impression that it is like any other android tablet, then they might be disappointed. There is a lot of Amazon bloatware. But you can always side load Google play store and get any app from Google installed on this tablet. I love it for my light use for reading magazines and watching videos. You could read books from Kindle as well, but I prefer the ebook reader for that.
