- needing battery recharge more frequently
- letters blurring and becoming less distinct
- screen freezing
- random reboots
- the screen looks like it has lifted along one side.
The lighted cover has lasted well but is getting a bit temperamental now. The light itself is a bit wobbly.
So, I did some sums to work out if I had got value for money from my Kindle.
I've had it for 927 days (2 years, 6 months, 14 days) and have used it every day for an average of 3 hours a day. That's a guesstimate of use as on many days it's been used for 5+ hours. I've read just under 700 books on it.
Working out the cost per hour using the average 3 hours it comes to <=$0.14c per hour of reading time.
Amazon claim an average life expectancy of 3 years with 500 battery charges, based on 30 minutes of reading a day.
I think I got my money's worth.
