Engadget Review

With an impressive high-resolution display and a vast content catalog to match, the Kindle Voyage is easily the best e-reader Amazon has ever crafted. Still, its high price tag means it just doesn't make sense for the average reader.

This is the best E Ink e-reader I’ve used, and it’s unquestionably the best that Amazon has ever made. The thing is, it’s only marginally better than the fantastic Paperwhite in several ways, and significantly better in none.

It’s certainly beautiful if you can justify the outlay, but for most the more affordable options in Amazon’s Kindle line-up will strike a better cost-value balance than the flagship Kindle Voyage.

It is the best, full stop. Just keep in mind that best doesn't perfect; in the next few years we'll almost certainly see a Voyage that's much cheaper, or waterproof, or both.

If you’re an avid reader looking for a new ereader, this is what your eyes want you to spend your money on ... But, if you already have any version of the Paperwhite, you don’t need to upgrade.

The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.

The Amazon Kindle Voyage is hands down the best ebook reader available, though most people will still be served just fine by the Kindle Paperwhite.

Ars Technica
It’s attractive and understated, and it retains and improves upon all of the good stuff from other Kindles. It’s just that a dedicated e-reader at this price is the king of a very small hill.

Business Insider
The new device is thinner and lighter with a better screen and a more convenient way to turn pages, but, at the end of the day, none of those changes are so revolutionary that you should ditch your old model if it still works fine.

Wired
The Voyage starts at $199; it almost hits the $300 mark when you add 3G and delete the special offers. With that kind of a price discrepancy, you have to either be fanatically devoted to having The Newest Thing or a serious reader to choose the Voyage over the Paperwhite.
