Great device!!

Nico, South Africa. 10 November 2017

Magnificent piece of technology.
Not only that - the service at the Takealot warehouse (Montague Gardens) was amazing. This is truly a World Class Company in SA.

Karina, South Africa. 6 December 2017

Exactly what it says it is

marga, South Africa. 20 October 2017

Comfortable reading experience!

Robert, South Africa. 26 July 2017

Love my Kindle. I've had no trouble with it.

Lindy, South Africa. 14 December 2017

I have been using a kindle for 8 years. The new one is super lightweight and small. Wonderful product.

Arno, South Africa. 1 November 2017

Awesome product, a joy to handle and to own. Battery life somewhat disappointing though.

Kobus, South Africa. 31 March 2016

Loving it! Regretting not going for the 3G model as getting it onto the wifi each time is tedious (don't have a router and using my phone as a hotspot instead)
Great product though!

Stanton, South Africa. 19 December 2017

Love the Kindle Paperwhite. One drawback is that you must be connected to WiFi only to access content on Amazon. Would be nice if you had the option to connect via USB.

christine, South Africa. 13 March 2017

Love it!
It's really easy to set up.
It's super light.
It has the back light
It's really great

Samantha, South Africa. 4 April 2017

Great device... takes a bit of getting used to after reading a physical book but loving it so far.

I love it!, South Africa. 3 January 2018

I am so happy with this product. It is much lighter than a tablet and I love the size of it. It feels like I’m reading a book. The screen brightness can easily be adjusted.

ashleigh , South Africa. 4 August 2017

Im so happy with my kindle. Its the perfect size.

Petro, South Africa. 9 August 2017

Love my Kindle paperwhite. Had a problem with first one, ....battery did last days, as was advertised..after a few days it stopped working. I contacted Take-a-lot, and it was exchanged immediately. Thank you. Would have liked the cover pages of the books to be in colour, but I suppose one cannot have everything. (tongue in the check)

Graham, South Africa. 1 December 2017

As a first time Kindle owner I have not basis for comparison to other readers or Kindle models, but am very happy with it. It is completely intuitive to use.

Rachel, South Africa. 16 June 2017

Loving it! Having previously used the Kindle app on my (large) iPad Air 2, I'm really enjoying having a much smaller e-reader that I can comfortably hold in one hand and which can easily fit into my handbag. I can spend much longer reading now without my eyes getting tired and can also use it outside in the sun with no problem.

Michael, South Africa. 18 October 2017

Very happy with it. Prompt delivery.

Stephanie, South Africa. 27 December 2017

My husband loves the Kindle. He especially likes that the backlight can be adjusted.

Alain, South Africa. 6 December 2017

Excellent device - battery life one can measure in decades

Stephen, South Africa. 10 August 2017

Great product

Yvette, South Africa. 14 August 2017

Awesome product!!

Petro, South Africa. 24 March 2017

Epic product. So glad I bought it.

Lynne , South Africa. 4 December 2017

It's fantastic, so much easier to read now. Can't compare it to reading on the tablet!

bessie, South Africa. 22 February 2017

I really enjoy my ereader, kindle is tops!!

mike, South Africa. 11 December 2015

This Kindle with backlight eliminates the need for an auxiliary light for reading in the dark while retaining the ability to read in brilliant sun. The battery life of 3 to 4 days is so much better than the hours provided by the Fire

Kim Terri, South Africa. 8 December 2017

Didn't think I would enjoy switching from paperbacks to this, but loving it!

LES, South Africa. 5 July 2017

very pleased so far

The Kindle paperwhite is an upgrade to my two kobos I had before which typically break or freeze after 2weeks use, the kindle seems to work better its more rigid and feels like its gonna last much longer than 2weeks.

Trevor, South Africa. 26 July 2017

I was very disappointed when my first generation Kindle died. I loved its size, its weight and its "old school" navigation. After shopping around I realised that Paper White was the best option and am really enjoying it. I especially like the fact that it is illuminated so I can read in the dark. Size and weight is similar to the original Kindle, navigation took me a bit of time to get used to but very happy now.
Service from Takealot that included a query with one of their agents was first class.

Anne, South Africa. 30 December 2017

Great product. Very user friendly and the backlight a big bonus.

Nico, South Africa. 8 December 2016

Easy to use. There are a bunch of ebook converters but just note that this model does not support EPUB files. At least you can convert them to MOBI etc.

Anton Johan, South Africa. 3 October 2017

Wife says it is the BEST device she ever owned.

Jeffrey, South Africa. 20 September 2017

Great device, great service.

Marja, South Africa. 30 October 2017

Speedy delivery in good co ndition. Lovely tablet.
