Customer Reviews:

  • If you want a Liberal slant to all news
    I've been getting the NYT on the Kindle for several months. It is formatted well for the Kindle. I overlooked the many Liberal editorials because of the Kindle experience.

    But, today was the last straw. A very negative slant about Mrs. McCain on the FRONT PAGE. If you wamt to put this trash in an editorial fine, but, to disguise this trash as news.....not for me.

    I immediately canceled and subscribed to the Washington Post....more info
  • YES, he said, yes
    What a great deal for an essential daily! I was paying close to $30 per month for the Sunday Times home delivered in CA. I am more than satisfied to date with content, readability, and delivery. And cost. I will continue my LATimes print subscription because another $359 for a second Kindle for my wife would be a bit mad....more info
  • Horrible
    I decided to give The New York Times another go, having forgot why I stopped reading it in the first place.

    First article I read was littered with inaccuracies, omitting facts that would give a while new perspective on the story, and it was extremely opinionated. The articles read like novels, focusing to much on what a person was wearing and their interpretation of peoples features, gestures, and wrinkles to add needless fluff into their stories. When I ventured from their news articles (that were filled of the journalists opinion), to their actual Opt-ed section, my jaw dropped. That is when any sense of moral decency and facts completely went out the window. They are still reporting hoaxes that other newspapers have uncovered, as fact! I stopped right there amidst the needless bashing of their "journalists" and turned off my kindle, eager to terminate my subscription. ...more info
  • Tried to send me to prison; would not transact again
    As documented in The Art of Intrusion: The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders & Deceivers, The New York Times Co. attempted to send me to prison when I got a slightly early start on obtaining a digital edition of their content. While informative, and at times containing deeply human portrayals of their op-ed columnists, confidential sources, and every subscriber nationwide, I found every attempt to obtain assistance from the company with their digital content met with "warrants" and "guns" :/ Definitely would not resubscribe....more info

  • Why is this better than free NYT on iPhone
    I am considering this but why, other than maybe more readable given the Kindle screen vs the iPhone screen, is this worth $14/month vs free and in color on the iPhone?...more info
  • Can't download to iphone
    Typical stupidity in limiting what content can go where. Doesn't the N Y Times need every nickel? No money from millions of iPhone users . How dumb...more info
  • Not all of the articles
    First of all, I'm happy there's a trial subscription so that knowing what I now know prevents me from spending any money on an actual subscription. I was really looking forward to solely reading the New York Times via the Kindle. But, having realized that not all of the articles are available I'm very disappointed. Luckily I thought to compare what's available in the electronic version with what was delivered to my home. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known what's missing! Less money for the electronic version shouldn't mean that I get less of the news/articles. I'll be canceling the the New York Times Kindle version....more info
  • 35 years reading paper format, several years online, 1 month Kindle: Kindle by far best format for my needs
    After reading the NYT in its paper format for over 35 years, and for several years online via the computer, I wasn't sure how I would like it via the Kindle.

    After a month reading it on my Kindle, I will never go back to paper. Two reasons. First, in every location where I read the paper, the Kindle is the most user-friendly medium. On the subway: As a subway commuter in Washington it was common that the cars were so packed that I could not even turn the page of the paper version. So, I would stand for 30 minutes looking at the front page. Not a problem on the Kindle. At home: whatever position (laying down, standing up, getting dinner ready, etc.) holding and reading the Kindle is always comfortable.

    Second, while I always seemed to miss an article in the paper format, I never do with the Kindle version - - all the articles are listed. The key (and maybe this should have been obvious if I had read the Kindle user guide) is to start with "Go to Articles List" and then use the "Back" button to quickly get back to the articles list after you are done reading the current article.

    No more missing that article hiding on the bottom of the page in the middle of the section. I also subscribe to the update service, which is a great companion to this subscription.

    NOTE: I don't do crosswords, so while some have complained that this is missing, not a problem for me. Others have complained about delivery issues. Not a problem for me - getting the paper version on time every day - that was a different story. Photos - yes these are generally missing from the Kindle version, but I don't really miss them. In terms of price, as some have noted it is not as cheap as other papers. Have folks priced a subscription to the paper format recently?...more info
  • Too Expensive
    I can get more content from the NYTimes online for free. Paying more for less, now that's not a very good model. ...more info
  • Simply amazing!!!
    I will start out by clearly stating that I do not have a suscription to this paper on the Kindle. That however is not all that important a detail becuase the only thing that would allow me to comment on is the frequency of delivery issues. What I do is purchase the sunday edition for 75 cents. I download it wirelessly within 20 seconds of clicking buy. That is an amazing feat when you consider how massive the Sunday edition of any newspaper including the New York Times can be. The level of detail that is present in the Kindle edition is downright cool. There are usually pictures spread throughout attached to some of the most pressing stories. The way that they arrange it is through a folder system (now if they could only let us do the same for our normal books)making it a breeze to navigate through. The slant is decidely liberal but that isn't something that is a necessary detail when reviewing a Kindle edition of a paper. Do not hesitate to purchase on occasion or subscribe to; although I feel that the subscription price is a bit high. ...more info

    Throw in some ads and charge me a nominal fee($3.99/mo maybe). I'd rather spend the $14/month on 2 Kindle books. Newspapers should make their money on ads not subscription fees....more info
  • missing editorial content
    I was very surprised and disappointed to learn recently that my Kindle edition of The New York Times was missing editorial opinion pieces. The most recent example is an op ed article by Roger Cohen which appeared in the print edition on April 20, 2009 but was not included in my Kindle edition. The only reason I know this is because a friend sent me an email with comments on the article, which of course I hadn't read.

    I have known for the 16 months that I have been subscribing to the Times on the Kindle that I have not been getting things like the weather tables, sports scores and standings, and the crossword puzzle, and although I don't understand why you don't provide that information, since you do provide pictures and other images, at least you warned me about it when I subscribed.

    But random missing content is very disquieting, particularly since I don't know what else I am missing. Kindle should either tell its subscribers specifically what content is not included, or, preferably, Kindle should fix the problem.

    I have been complaining about this issue for awhile, and until now your representatives have told me that the Times is responsible for content, not Kindle. (Therea in your leadership group at least understood my problem today.) But I am contracting for the Times with Kindle, and you have a responsibility to me and your other subscribers to provide the product advertised. You are not doing that now

  • Quite Impressed
    I've definitely noticed that a lot of things early NYT for Kindle adopters complained about have been remedied. I ordered the Sunday NYT yesterday for the $.75 single-issue price and was quite impressed. The articles had photos. There was a lot of content (including the Magazine, book reviews, classifieds, etc.)...more than I expected. I think one just has to concede that newspaper content for Kindle (like the Internet versions a decade ago) is evolving. I didn't expect as much Sunday content as I got for $.75, so I was pleasantly surprised. I don't expect to subscribe (I don't have the time to keep up with a daily paper), so I love the convenience of grabbing a virtual copy of the NYT on an as-needed basis from anywhere I might be. Well worth it!...more info
  • Too expensive for an abbreviated version
    I just got my Kindle a week or two ago and I really like it. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the NYT on the Kindle. First of all, the subscription is too expensive, so I will cancel my trial subscription. The Kindle version seems to have all of the major stories, and it is easy to browse around, but for $15 per month, it is simply too expensive. The content certainly is not exclusive, and most of the time I just check out the NYT on the Internet. The kindle is more convenient in the morning while drinking coffee, etc.... but for $15? Come on! If they dropped the price to about $5 per month, I would subscribe for life. But $15 is just too much....more info
  • Sunday edition a COMPLETE bargain compared to at-home delivery
    Am I missing something here, after reading all the complaints in other reviews? I have been paying $26 (!!) a month for having (ONLY) Sunday edition delivered to my house in Washington DC...... Or now even more starting next week-- $7.50 per Sunday issue according to the notification I just received from the delivery service, to be exact. Today for a comparison experiment, I downloaded the Sunday edition to my Kindle for a whopping 75 cents. That is at least 10 times less than paper version. I compared article for article, section for section to see the differences. I found a very very small number of articles missing from the kindle version, and none of them were tragic if I didn't have them. Obviously no ads, which is a bonus. I was delighted that all book review articles were there on kindle and all of the magazine section, both very important for me to even consider switching. Even better, the NY "local" Metro and Real Estate sections were available on the Kindle, which the "national" version of the Sunday paper does not even have. These are half the point of why I originally had the Sunday delivered to DC, but gave up trying to beg the NY Times to see reason to deliver the "local" version to somewhere outside of NYC. Only missing piece on Kindle that I wish it had was the "Week in Review" themed blurbs on the second page of the Week in Review and the snippets from comedian's late shows, also on that Page 2. I can live with this loss for saving $6.75+ per week! Plus I bet the NYT will come around to include them eventually. After a 10 minute learning curve, I got good at navigating around to whatever section I wanted and started scanning articles as if it was a print edition. I was still missing the idea of the newspaper edition for another 30 minutes or so, but then got absorbed in an article and realized I was fine without it by then. Plus it is way easier to read on kindle than juggling print version wherever I was in the mood to read it in the house, on porch, at table today. I didn't notice any more typos than the print edition, which has always been hopelessly full of them, so that is non-issue. I just couldn't find the problems that some reviewers had with the kindle version, despite trying very hard not to like the kindle version. So comparing the money saved, to the 2-3 articles missing out of probably 100 that were there in-full, this is a no-brainer. I plan to cancel the print version and save a boatload of money....more info
  • New York Times
    Just bought a Kindle and tried the Times. It costs a fraction of what I have been paying for home delivery. I love the format and find the Kindle very easy to read papers with. No more late deliveries or wet papers. You can enjoy the paper and help the environment at the same time. It is such a delight not having to call customer service at the NYT to complain about yet another missed paper. 60 seconds and my news is delivered. LLW of MI....more info
  • Coudn't get used to the format
    I really did try. But I miss the photo, the crossword, national weather map, and miss holding the paper. I do love my Kindle for books, but until the NYT goes out of business I will continue to buy the paper version. ...more info
  • Yesterday's News Delivered Tomorrow
    The NYTimes in San Francisco delivers from before 9 a.m. to as late as 11:20 p.m. (2:20 a.m. the next day in NY) The paper contains news from yesterday, packaged electronically, and delivered late. No problems with the Financial Times, which delivers 11:00 p.m. the day before....more info
  • Convenient, but missing key sections
    Purchased a Kindle2 and subscribed to the NY Times. One goal was to avoid the 1/4 mile walk to the mailbox to get the paper, another was to get rid of the piles of old newspapers which also have to be hauled 1/4 mile to be recycled. Key to this was getting a REAL NY Times electronically.

    Close, but not quite yet. The reading experience has been fairly good on
    the Kindle2...and the paper is on my device when I wake up in the morning.

    However, very valuable sections are missing. For example, on Friday's paper the Broadway theatre listing was missing, while the classical and dance sections were there. These weekend activities are an important poart of the Times value to subscribers (at least in the NY area) and need to be included. A few more photos would be nice too : the real estate and weddings sections have none. Both of these are cases where a photo adds value to the story.

    With just a little more work, it would be a great substiture for the hardcopy paper.

    Amazon, PLEASE PLEASE work with the NY Times to get it better. Both products would be better as a result....more info
  • missing too much
    Missing the classifieds, ads, travel section etc. makes the NY Times for kindle a bit worthless. I still have to buy the Sunday edition to get the "relaxing" parts of the paper that make it special.
    I don't know why they can't include it all....more info
  • To Much money
    I am new to the Kindle word and read all the reviews with much interest. I REALLY like the NYTimes BUT for the money being asked I believe there are better products out there. To bad but I wont be getting This newspaper. Capt Bob was right..Just to much money...more info
  • pretty good for Kindle, not perfect
    I do enjoy reading the Times on my Kindle.
    It is a little expensive but it's my one major indulgence, Kindle-wise.
    I can carry my Kindle around and snatch quick reads of a page or 2, all day and night. (ever since I was a kid in the 1960's, my grandpa, and then my dad, and then I, would always read the Times every morning, on paper)

    The content is usually fairly well formatted for the Kindle, with occasional exceptions. The graphics are rendered in greyscale and usually you can see basically what's going on there. I always go by the "Articles List", and I appreciate having summaries of each article there.

    I wish that some more of the online-only content would be included (but I guess they sell their blogs separately, for Kindle subscriptions). And a few sections are uninteresting to me (Sports, etc.) so I wish I could "skip this section" while still in the "Articles List" (you can skip a section but only in the "Sections List", except then you lose your place in the "Articles list").

  • I am disappointed with the abbreviated content.
    It killed me when the Seattle PI closed. I love the NYT too, but where we live we can't get daily delivery that's reliable (USPS). I bought my Kindle 2 thinking that for $14 I would be getting the whole NYT. Not true. I'm just a couple of days into my trial subscription and it's just a shell of a paper. Someone asked how I liked it. I told them it was the TV version of a newspaper. They show you what they think you want to read. One of the things I like about a print newspaper is that you may not want to read everything, but at least you have a choice. I'm going to cancel this trial and try the WSJ. But, I dislike their opinions about as much as I dislike the Seattle Times.

    I really thought this was such an efficient way to do a newspaper that I'd get everything ads and all. What a disappointment....more info

    just a note toagreed with the review that talks about pricint. the main reaon i will not subscribe is i get NYT alerts and free readings on my cell phone. a cheaper price and i would subscribe....more info
  • Way too pricey
    I like the NYT but it's free on-line...$9.99/month is too much for any paper and this one is $14/month. Granted you can tote your Kindle around easier than your laptop, but come on. It's waaaay over-priced for what you get....more info
  • price is crazy
    as with all subscriptions the price is way too high. especially if you already have a subscription . . . in which case it should be about 5 dollar . . . a price poiny anyone would buy. buy yhe current price just shows that the TImes folks still dont get it. sadly . . . for them....more info
  • Missing more articles than advertised.
    The kindle version of the paper must be put together before the actual print copy is finalized. For instance, in the 10-8-2008 edition of the NY times my kindle is missing an article from the Editorial section called "Politics of Attack", I did a search on my kindle for key words that are in the paper addition just in case the title was different, which is quite common on the kindle and turned up nothing. I really love the kindle addition of this paper but I don't want to miss-out on a big piece of news in the future....more info
  • GOOD-BYE WSJ, and HELLO FT!
    I have just bought my Kindle 2, partially to get the WSJ subscription. I used to subscribe to the paper edition, but despite of only living from 10 miles of NYC delivery of the paper was terrible.
    I was impressed with my Kindle reader and I thought paying 9.99 for the WSJ was a good compromise. Although the navigation was a little bit cumbersome, I have found most of the content, and the whispernet delivery was great.
    As I just started my trial subscription I have found out that the price went up by 50%. I am hugely disappointed, and as soon as my 2-weeks trial is over I will be canceling my subscription. Although I have loved the WSJ, this price just does not make sense. So GOOD-BYE WSJ, and HELLO FT!
    I am disappointed with Amazon too, the pricing structure of its products just seem to be too unpredictable.
    I thought I was going to be a life-long Kindle reader, but I am not so sure of that anymore. ...more info
  • Not perfect, but well worth it
    There's no doubt that this technology isn't quite there yet. The Kindle itself is a remarkable product (especially for a first generation technology), but it's designed for books. The Times isn't as easy to navigate on a Kindle as a book, but the lower cost, lack of waste, and ease of delivery more than make up for it's relatively trivial shortcomings.

    Up until now, I had a weekend subscription and would read online during the week. The Kindle offers a nice compromise between the two. You get the readability of the physical paper without the waste, and greater convenience than the online edition.

    I find myself reading more of the paper every day and it's great to be able to reach over and read it without ever getting out of bed. The only real drag is the lack of updates throughout the day, which would be nice considering the price of the Times is substantially more than Kindle editions of comparable papers.

    I haven't given up the Sunday subscription just yet, but by Kindle 2.0, physical periodicals will be a thing of the past in my house....more info
  • Formatting issues detract from content
    The electronic format NYT has several disadvantages. First, the font seems to use less pixels then other newspapers so the text is a bit more difficult to discern and read at all font sizes. Second, as another reviewer mentioned, the left justified format with ragged edges is cumbersome when compared to a fully justified electronic newspaper. Third, there is a full blank line inserted between each paragraph which sacrifices space without improving readability. Finally, the Washington Post provides a word count for each article which is a nice way of letting you know how large of an article you are diving into, sort of like you would gather from looking at the size of an article on a printed page.

    I am a diehard NYT reader but the Kindle electronic format leaves me cold when compared to other electronic newspapers....more info
  • no paper or ink - great idea!
    ....but I didn't extend my trial subscription. All the front page articles are there and well written, but I'm not loving "Kindle editions" of most things. I'd like to see the articles listed without description to avoid the flipping of pages. Better organization would be ideal. I do like the no paper/no ink idea....so why the high cost?...more info
  • Delivery is poor
    The download is very inconsistent. Many times the paper does not come for a few days. Because of this I am cancelling my subscription....more info
  • Wish my 401(k) had this return
    I didn't purchase the Kindle 1 because of its poor reviews for reading newspapers. I expected this would be fixed in version 2, and I'm delighted to say it was. Therefore, although I've subscribed to daily delivery of the NYT for more than 40 years, I canceled my paper subscription and subscribed on my Kindle. I have been paying $13.40 per week or $696.80 a year. With the Kindle, I am now paying $167.88 a year. Therefore, even in Year 1, after spending over $400 with the cover and extended warranty for the Kindle, I will be saving more than $100 and over $500 each subsequent year.

    Pros:
    * You get to finish the front page and all other stories that are continued elsewhere without having to turn to page X and then back to the front page. ( I've generally read the FP articles I was interested in and then turned through the rest of the first section, picking up the articles as I went through the section). How many times have you not finished an article because you didn't have time to go through the paper?
    *Articles for each section are easily sorted so you can pick the ones you are interested in and then return to the list
    * YOU CAN ADJUST THE FONT. For me and other older, visually challenged readers, that's a huge plus.
    * Just as a blackberry enables me to keep all of my contact and schedule data in one place, the kindle does the same for the majority of what I will be reading.
    * It is like reading a book, not at all like reading a computer screen with back lighting that tires your eyes
    * Easier reading experience= more reading
    * With the ability to turn a page with the touch of a finger, easier to eat while reading. Furthermore, if you like to read the paper in bed while your spouse is sleeping, there is no noise from page turning.

    Cons:
    *I find the "black flash" when you turn a page somewhat annoying. I've gotten in the habit of looking away for a second when I hit the next page button to avoid this. Ideally the new page should appear without any flash
    * It's slightly heavier than I would prefer but the size is perfect.
    * The web access feature is experimental and did not work when I tried a simple search using google.
    * You can't email an article directly from the kindle. You have to download clipping to your computer with usb cable.

    It's not perfect, but it's a better reading experience than the paper version and, if you're a NYT subscriber a money saver as well.

  • Great Version of the NYT - Prefer it to the print

    I enjoy reading the Kindle version of the Times better than the print version, especially on the subway. It is well organized and the articles work well in Kindle format. If you are focused on more than the text -- like the graphics or the crossword -- this is not for you. I just care about the text and for that, the Kindle version is perfect....more info
  • I WANTED to love the NYT on my Kindle, but...
    It was always a day, sometimes two days late. That was very annoying. I ended up canceling it as I hate "day-before-yesterday" news. Too bad, I loved the idea. Might go back when the execution is better....more info
  • Needs more National Content
    While I do enjoy what is offered in the Kindle version of the NY Times, I find it lacking in the number of stories, both Front Page and National. Also, the price is sort of high considering this is a digital format which costs them much less to provide....more info
  • Great Newspaper. Expect what you pay for
    For a general frame of reference, I had the Times delivered for three months at the introductory rate, but I couldn't justify the normal price. I red the articles online, but I wanted a daily delivery. The format is intuitive and the articles are always there in their entirety. The lack of the crossword and other features have perturbed many other subscribers. I personally think that at less than half price of the print version, you get what you pay for. If you would like to see what it would be like, go to the website and remove some of the pictures. I like the daily delivery, the articles are there, and its far cheaper than the print version. The price seems a bit high, but when compared to the print version, its quite amicable. All in all the articles are what you read the paper for and they are all there just as in the print version....more info
  • unavailable overseas?
    I got the NYTimes for my new Kindle specifically because I was traveling to Australia and New Zealand and wanted to access it. I was surprised to find that it never updated after I left the US. I just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to cancel the subscription, and if it is there someplace it is well hidden. I liked reading it on the plane, really convenient, quiet, no bulk. Annoying to be unable to cancel it....more info
  • Love The Times, but they really don't get it.
    The digital version of the paper looks good, is better for the environment, and was delivered to my Kindle early enough every day for me to enjoy it. That's the good stuff. Here's why I'm canceling:

    1. The price is insane! You could read almost the entire paper online for free. It makes no sense to pay $14 a month for this.
    2. Other newspapers on Kindle are way cheaper. Yes, the Times is the best (if you are into their viewpoint of course), but not worth paying a 5-8 dollar premium.
    3. The free, online version is constantly updated. The New York Times is stagnant as soon as it is delivered each day to the Kindle. There are no updates. This may be a constraint of the Kindle newspaper delivery set up, but in any event, it's a drag.
    4. Even the print version can be gotten for cheaper. My wife is a teacher. There are discounts for subscribing to the print version. The Kindle price is a flat rate (this is probably a limitation that Amazon imposes).
    5. As others pointed out, the crossword is not included. I don't care at all, but it's worth noting for those of you crossword junkies.
    (P.S.- Why is this a big deal? You can't do the crossword on the kindle or print it out. Eh?)

    So in short, I love the New York Times, but The Times on the Kindle is just a silly purchase. Come on Gray Lady, get your act together. If The Times folds, it is entirely your own fault....more info

    I wish it gave a word count. Sometimes I don't have time to start a 4,000 word article, and it would be nice to know that going in....more info
  • Quite Impressed
    I've definitely noticed that a lot of things early NYT for Kindle adopters complained about have been remedied. I ordered the Sunday NYT yesterday for the $.75 single-issue price and was quite impressed. The articles had photos. There was a lot of content (including the Magazine, book reviews, classifieds, etc.)...more than I expected. I think one just has to concede that newspaper content for Kindle (like the Internet versions a decade ago) is evolving. I didn't expect as much Sunday content as I got for $.75, so I was pleasantly surprised. I don't expect to subscribe (I don't have the time to keep up with a daily paper), so I love the convenience of grabbing a virtual copy of the NYT on an as-needed basis from anywhere I might be. Well worth it!...more info
  • automatic delivery time delayed
    I thoroughly enjoy receiving NY Times daily. However, despite several customer service contacts re delayed delivery, on occasion I do not receive the newspaper in the morning. Today is Sunday 1:45 pm and I still have not received today's edition...quite annoying as I like to read it first thing in the morning. I have followed instructions to restart the kindle, am in same location as always, have good signal strength. Am mystified as to the delay....more info
  • NYT too expensive, too biased, alternatives discussed
    I love my Kindle 2 for books, blogs, and magazines. However, newspapers are a challenge. Obviously, it would be nice to have quick access to news of the day as well as detailed articles, as you can get from a computer's internet access. I have tried the New York Times for this service. However, I canceled my subscription after two months. It is incredibly expensive ($13.99 a month) especially for something you can get free online. In addition, you can't scan sections easily, such as you would do with a real paper (view front page section stories).
    Most importantly, I just can't stand the liberal bias. I expect it on the editorial pages but when it permeates every political article, it is nauseating. It reminds me of a moveon.org mouthpiece. Every political article must be read with your own filter of the motivation of the NYT. I just can't support paying for such bias. And they wonder why they are going bankrupt...
    Regarding options, I do subscribe to the WSJ which does have a way to scan the important non-business stories of the day, just like their front page right hand column. However, it is just once a day with no update on breaking news. The Kindle blogs on news are all lacking as well, though the Reuters and AP options are the best I have found (though they are left leaning as well).
    Nevertheless, there is still a void in Kindle news coverage compared to what is available online. How about adding a way to easily read online news from other news outlets such as Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Drudge, etc? While I am ranting, why not add Barrons too...
    I do love my Kindle, really....more info
  • Sorry Newspaper
    I would not accept a subscription to this newspaper if it was free. Some of the things they have informed the people have bordered on traitorous. When you read between the lines, you can see this is one of the most biased newspapers in the country. I hear they are going broke and I for one am glad to see it. ...more info
  • Where's the Rest of it?
    Generally pleased with my subscription but VERY annoyed that, in contrast to the description that it will include NYT articles sans graphs, charts and crossword--what you're not told and I tried very hard to find out before ordering--is that several articles are omitted from each edition and sometimes the articles that are included abruptly end, chopping off the final few sentences or paragraph. Yesterday's Sunday edition (Aug 24) only had 3 articles from the Book Review--a fraction of that section. This flaw needs work fixing or NYT need to state the subscription contents clearly. ...more info

  • Good Content, Overpriced...
    If the price on this was $5.99 - this would be a five star review...at 9.99 three stars. The formatting is acceptable and content is excellent but pricing?? I have no idea why this is priced so high other than the huge bite that Amazon keeps on these....more info
  • missing too many sections
    Why pay for a newspaper that is missing key sections? I will subscribe when the entire paper is on the Kindle. No science section and the absence of David Pogue's articles is a deal stopper....more info
  • i read the Times better on Kindle.

  • Can use some improvements, but a good start
    I was a subscriber to the New York Times weekend addition, which was $19 a month, but I discontinued my subscription as soon as I found out I could get a monthly subscription on the Kindle for $14. Since the Kindle is still so young, this newspaper can definitely use some improvement (such as a bigger screen for the articles, color, and all articles that are in the newspaper addition), but for someone like me who only had a weekend addition anyway, this is a great deal. and being able to flip to the next page with one click instead of having to turn to page twenty to continue a story that started on page 1 is very nice as well. ...more info
  • Great product, but expensive

  • NYT: Reconsider the price break
    The Times is a major consideration in deciding whether to purchase a Kindle. The NYT is currently free on the Web but we can suppose that in this environment management is re-considering, and may require a subscription like the WSJ in the future. What NYT management has to consider, with the Kindle, is that the amount to be received is "incremental," as a prior reviewer has noted -- many subscribers who get a Kindle now or in the near future already read substantial portions the NYT for free, and the additional features (ease, magazines, and others, for certain) have to be worth the subscription price. For now, $13.99 is just bothersome -- when other major publications are at $9.99 or less. Management, you may have a great newspaper but you need to rethink your pricing -- three at $10 are worth more than just two at $14. It's pretty basic. ...more info
  • Convenient, but missing key sections
    Purchased a Kindle2 and subscribed to the NY Times. One goal was to avoid the 1/4 mile walk to the mailbox to get the paper, another was to get rid of the piles of old newspapers which also have to be hauled 1/4 mile to be recycled. Key to this was getting a REAL NY Times electronically.

    Close, but not quite yet. The reading experience has been fairly good on
    the Kindle2...and the paper is on my device when I wake up in the morning.

    However, very valuable sections are missing. For example, on Friday's paper the Broadway theatre listing was missing, while the classical and dance sections were there. These weekend activities are an important part of the Times value to subscribers (at least in the NY area) and need to be included. A few more photos would be nice too : the real estate and weddings sections have none. Both of these are cases where a photo adds value to the story.

    With just a little more work, it would be a great substiture for the hardcopy paper.

    Amazon, PLEASE PLEASE work with the NY Times to get it better. Both products would be better as a result....more info
  • Difficult Format for newspaper subscriptions.
