My old paperwhite was over five years old and it was finally starting to give up the ghost. Wouldn't hold a charge for long, seemed as though it took ages to download a book so decided I'd get another. Decided to stick with this one rather than spend more on the Oasis after reading reviews. Am very happy with the quality and download speed of this Kindle. Was totally easy to set up, took minutes and then in less than 15 minutes I had downloaded the 90 books on my current kindle to the new one. For the price well worth trading in my old one for the newer faster one. even if you've never set one up, there is absolutely no way to mess it up, well unless you pick the wrong language and end up having to learn German.
