Analysis of the latest 48 Kindle Reviews by Actual Kindle Owners on Amazon

(for purposes of this compilation the last review is the one by Cameron Stevens)

The information in this post is used primarily in – The Kindle Decision aka the $400 Question – Should I Buy a Kindle?

 Here are the statistics – 48 Reviews.

  1. 31 - ***** 
  2. 11 - **** 
  3. 1 – ***
  4. 2 – **
  5. 1 – *

BTW I’ve excluded non owners (who have given it either 1 or 4 stars).

So, why are there so many more positive reviews in this last week. I think its because people’s expectations have been set better now that there are users and reviews and they don’t expect the kindle to solve world hunger. Also, will be interesting to see how many of the 1 and 2 star reviews are from non owners – upates soon.  [Edit: I've been going through the 1 star reviews and interesting viewpoints]

  1. Thank you, to whoever invented this “Star Trek” era device!

    It makes my new book available immediately to those who want it, and although I will earn less per copy, the potential is out there to actually sell more copies of this book through this medium.

    I think I might end up making the switch to Kindle myslef…no more lugging!

  2. [...] No, reviews have not been mixed – almost everyone who owns a Kindle loves it. The majority of people who have bad reviews don’t own a Kindle. Some of them haven’t even seen or touched a Kindle in person. There’s another Kindle blogger who actually has the list of real kindle owner reviews. And I’ve talked about how only 8 of  the 130 most helpful 1 star reviews on Amazon are by actual owners – Is the Kindle getting unfair Reviews?  and more importantly that owners give it great ratings i.e. Analysis of the latest 48 Kindle Reviews by Actual Kindle Owners on Amazon [...]
