  1. EXCELLENT tablet at a reasonable price. The Fire HDX is setting the bar for other tablets! The new Fire HDX 8.9 is definitely one powerful tablet, packed with some pretty nice features. While it does have some small flaws here and there, it generally is an all around great buy. I’ll go over some of what I’ve noticed using the tablet, what I’ve learned from others who are using it, as well as the specs and how I feel about them.

I know people lament the loss of Google Play, but I’m a simple guy who doesn’t actually “need” absolutely everything. I can watch movies/videos from the major streaming services I use (Netflix/Prime), music (Pandora, Spotify, Prime), the various apps I use…

Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding. If you are a first-time…
