- M. Jennings - You couldn't pry it from this migraine sufferers hands!!!I received my Kindle for Christmas after begging and campaigning for the thing for a couple months. Now that I've used it for a few weeks, I am literally in love.
First let me say that I have tried many e-readers before, and being a migraine sufferer (bad enough to take preventative meds every day)the whole e-reader thing has always been an issue for me. I love the concept, but get a migraine from the screen. Well, I'm happy to say that I have had NO problems with the Kindle and have read it for hours at a time. The e-ink is unbelievable. It really does look like the page of a book and you can even read it in really bright sunlight(a problem with other e-readers).
It's easy to use, requires no complicated set-up, and you can begin downloading books right away. I am very impatient when it comes to getting new books. If I see a book I want to read, I want it now, and that has definitely been a benefit of the Kindle. I timed it one day just to humor myself, and 15 seconds after I hit "Buy" the book was on my Kindle. No more midnight runs to the bookstore or stalking the mailman waiting on a book.
I also really like the note taking capabilities. I generally write in the margins of my books and then have to flip through them later trying to find something. With the Kindle, you go to the book and click on "My Notes" and it pulls up all the notes you took on that book. Love that! And I'm completely obsessed with the silver cursor. I cannot figure out how the silver cursor works, but how cool is that? I know that's not an important feature, but cool none the less.
I know that it has e-mail capability and MP3 capabilities, but come on. I have the Kindle to read books from. I really don't need another thing that beeps at me when I get an e-mail. That's why I have a Blackberry. I've looked at the function, but it just doesn't interest me, so I really can't comment on how well it works.
The selection of books has been great. There have only been one or two things that I've searched for and been unable to find. I love to read the classics and have been able to get a lot of those for free or .99 which I REALLY love.
My only big complaint with the Kindle is the crappy cover that you find in the really cool box (again, box unimportant, but cool nonetheless). It is supposed to hold the Kindle, but mine was pretty smooshed from packaging and so the tabs won't hold it securely. There should be tabs to hold the other side or something.
A minor complaint is the fact that I'm noticing lots of books over $9.99. This was a huge selling point for me pushing to receive a Kindle. I can buy a lot of books for $359! I hope that they keep the prices reduced.
A lot of people have asked me why I can't just read the books on paper. What's the point in an e-reader? Well, if you've ever hauled a suitcase full of books through the airport (not kidding!), you know why. I'm a very fast reader and usually read three or four books at a time. I pick up which ever one I'm in the mood for. Carting around a selection of books is not practical - but slipping my Kindle into my purse with ALL my books on it is. It may not be for everyone, but it is a dream come true for me!
- G. Thomas - ExcellentThis product has been very helpful for me. For the past year I have had smelly discharge and had to clean myself several times a day, however my doctor could never find anything wrong. I have been taking this for two weeks with great improvement. Ordering from amazon for me is cheaper than buying this in the store, but it is worth every penny.
- kramer - So far so good. (Updated)I will start with the caveat that I did not buy this pillow from Amazon.com. I bought this pillow from the company's main site, as I would suggest that you do, since you can easily search for coupon codes that will give you 20% off. I was a bit concerned by the reviews on here, because all of the extremely positive reviews sounded like they were poorly written by a company employee and did not contain any detailed information about their experiences. I finally decided to give this pillow a shot after watching a video review on YouTube that appeared to be from a real customer.
I bought the "green" standard size pillow. and chose the 10-14 day shipping option for a shipping charge of $10 on the company website. I was pleasantly surprised when I had it delivered 3 days later. I unpacked the pillow, which came in a frighteningly small box just larger than a 2 liter bottle. The pillow was very flat when it came out, but it expanded somewhat as it sat there for a few hours. I put the pillow in the drier for 10 minutes as suggested on the sheet that it was packed with. The pillow had greatly expanded and was now the size and thickness of a standard pillow.
I just tried this pillow for the first time last night. The pillow was wonderfully supportive and felt sufficiently firm without feeling hard. I would describe it as feeling somewhat like a combination of a standard (polyester fill?) and a memory foam pillow. I most recently have been using standard pillows and found no "learning curve" to get used to this pillow. I imagine that if you are used to a down pillow (which I hate) it may take some time to adapt. I do not know what the pillow is filled with, but it looks somewhat lumpy in appearance and it feels to the touch as if there are medium sized (ping-pong to baseball sized) clumps of the material inside the cover. The pillow does not feel lumpy when you are laying on it, and the different sized clumps conform nicely to the shape of your head while laying down. The pillow does somewhat retain the shape of your head when you get up, but to no where near the extent that memory foam pillows do. I slept better than I had in weeks last night, but I was also extremely tired, so I imagine that played a role.
I did not notice any of the odor that a few others have mentioned. I have used memory foam pillows, so I know exactly what kind of chemical smell they are mentioning, and this pillow did not have any of that smell. I am wondering if the people that did notice a smell either got a bad batch or if the pillow they bought was not an authentic My Pillow. I even asked my girlfriend, who is very sensitive to smells, if she noticed a smell, and she did not.
As far as sound that the pillow makes while laying on it, I specifically listened for sound and could only hear a VERY slight rustling noise while I moved that was only slightly louder than a standard pillow. I have used sobakawa pillows which are incredibly loud, and My Pillow is nothing like this.
In short, I am quite happy with this pillow so far. $70 dollars (after coupon code and shipping) was a lot for me to spend on one pillow, so I hope it holds up with time. Every pillow I have had in the past, including memory foam, has gone flat within a few months, so I buy quite a few pillows in the course of a year. The instructions on My Pillow say that fluffing it up in the drier or machine washing it will bring the pillow back to full loft. I will try to remember to update this review in a few months about whether it has gone flat. It took me a while to work up the nerve to spend this amount on a pillow, and I found that there were not a lot of helpful reviews. If someone has a question, let me know if I can be of any help.
3 MONTH UPDATE: After about 3 months of nearly nightly use, the pillow seems to be holding up reasonably well. It does kind of lose its shape and loft every once in a while, but putting it in the dryer for 10-20 mins seems to make it good as new (at least for a couple of weeks, keep in mind though that I have a big head and can flatten a regular pillow in less than a month). I considered taking a star off because it is kind of a pain to "re-loft" the pillow, but since it is still better than any of the other pillows that I have tried, I think I'll leave it at 5 stars for now. Have rolled over and tried to use the girlfriends pillow with a standard fill (the kind I used most recently before this one), and I can't believe how much better My Pillow feels. I have not tried washing it; I am slightly afraid to, but they say it is washable.
