Great for media consumption

I bought the HDX after having an HD, and I was not disappointed. The UI is not designed for productivity, but that's not what this device is about. Many people have complained the lack of the Play Store, but you can sideload any Android app, so that's not really a problem ;)
Glossy plastic strip doesn't look very high-end, the coating on the sides already starts to wear off.
Fast WiFi thanks to dual antennas.
The Sillk browser is still with its flaws, but fast enough. I replaced it with Firefox.
I use VLC :)
What can I say, average 720p front facing camera.
Very fast thanks to SD800.
Good for wasting time, but not very productive :D
Good Swype-based keyboard, but sometimes a bit slow to react. Can be split in half.
Very crisp 1920x1200 display, I can't complain :)
Battery is good, but because SD800 not as good as old Fire HD.
