The Amazon Kindle Fire: Benchmarked, Tested, And Reviewed

Display Performance Examined: Very Bright, So-So Gamut

The Kindle Fire's 7" LG IPS panel offers up excellent brightness close to 450 nits, but gamut performance is fairly low, at 48% of the AdobeRGB 1998 spec.

At 6900 K, colour temperature is close to the standard 6500 K. However, many colours appear dull due to a relatively low gamma. For background information on our benchmarks, see Appendix A.

    It's 0.3" thick and weighs 0.89 pounds, making it thicker and heavier than many models with larger screens.

    Weird, the table lists it as .45" thick (so thicker than the iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab, but thinner than the Xoom) and all the others in the table are > 1lb so it's actually lighter than those.
