    I've been looking around for a deal on a Fire and considering a used one when I tripped over this deal on a refurbished Fire from Amazon. From what I can tell refurbs are normally $169. I ordered one... $139 and free shipping.

    Certified Refurbished. Package factory sealed. Ships with power adapter. A Certified Refurbished Kindle is a pre-owned Kindle that has been refurbished, tested and certified to look and work like new. Every Certified Refurbished Kindle is backed by a full one-year limited warranty, just like a brand-new Kindle.

    Amazon.com: Used and New: Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi

    Its almost a no brainer. I mean try finding a worthwhile tablet at 140 dollars. Everything else is so expensive you might aswell buy an Ipad. (Thats another debate Im sure)

    I cant wait to start messing with it. A smell another root comin.

    I ended up ordering a second one for a friend. Luckily I got that order placed before they closed the deal. Sometime this afternoon they pulled the deal down from the Amazon site.

    It said it was out of stock when I ordered mine, but it has shipped and they have charged my credit card.

    I got one for the wife unit and I will keep the Kindle E-Reader. So far its been very easy to set up the mail and he favorite web pages, got a few FREE books loaded and netflix set up for her. She will get her present tomorrow. I can find nothing wrong with this refurb unit.

    Ive had mine about a week now. The stock rom was ok, but alittle laggy and alittle limiting. Rooted, Loaded Cyanogen Mod 7 and its perfect. Overclocked and runnin smooth. Im very happy with it.

    I told my brother about that sale and he grabbed one. Arrived defective, but Amazon has great customer care and are sending him a new one [not a refurb] to replace it. Doesn't get any better than that. Love my Fire.
