I am a busy working mom with two kids ages 11 and 7. Needless to say they are both “screen crazy” and would play video games 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While I have resisted the temptation to make it easier for them to play games on the road, in the car, and in the doctor’s office waiting room. I have to admit it is a really convenient thing, especially if I need to keep them busy. I am in the market for a new gaming system for the kids to share and am trying to figure out which one is going to be our next purchase. The Kindle Fire HD7 has been recommended by many of my friends so here are the results of my research:
Kindle Fire HD7 Review – What Is It?
The Kindle Fire HD7 is a highly portable, high definition device that allows you to play movies, videos, TV, and games. You can also download books and magazines in color and use it for email, social media and many other things. Its fast processor (1.5GHz for those that are into numbers) allows for apps to launch quickly and for the games and videos to play smoothly. It also comes in either 8 GB or 16 GB, depending on your storage needs. The Kindle Fire HD7 also allows you to set a time limit on the machine via Kindle FreeTime – if you have kids, it is a great feature. With this system you have access to over 100,000 apps and games in the Amazon Appstore including a new paid app for free every day!
Kindle Fire HD7 Review – What I Liked
It is hard to deny the excellent high definition of this Kindle Fire HD7. It is one of the clearest screens I have ever seen and is very easy on the eyes – literally. I am also a huge fan of Kindle FreeTime, which allows you to set parental controls on the system to limit access to certain things. The reviews say it is the best program in the business and really easy to figure out. With two young kids, this is important to me. In a sea of similar products, I also really like the price of the Kindle Fire HD7. It is one of the less expensive alternatives and of all the products we have looked at, you get a lot for the money.
Kindle Fire HD7 Review – What I Didn’t Like
While the Kindle Fire HD7 has access to lots of great apps, it is only a fraction of what is available on Apple. Because I am looking for this for my two kids, limited apps might be a drawback. That is one of the things they like most about my iPhone. However, if the choice is between this or nothing, I think my kids would be thrilled with the Kindle Fire HD7.
Kindle Fire HD7 Review – Overall Thoughts
I have read lots of great reviews of the Kindle Fire HD7 and have also collected lots of great reviews from several friends (all with kids). For the price, this is a good quality, easily portable way of allowing my kids to enjoy movies, TV, games, books and magazines. In fact, the only thing I may have trouble with is getting them to share. I recommend this product (maybe two of em).
