I used to have an HDX, but my kids broke it, so this is a replacement for it. Its a bit harder to use, in my opinion. Takes a while for me to find apps/things I stored to cloud. I do not like that it has no restart option-you have to turn it off, then back on again. But, it holds quite a bit of stuff, has fairly fast web browsing, and is adequate for what I do. If you are looking for a better sound/video quality I would go for the more expensive HDX. If you like to read and browse the internet, this one will do ya.
