Jon Phillips:

Indeed, the Fire is a fiendishly effective shopping portal in the guise of a 7-inch slate. It’s also a winning video playback device that uses Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon’s own digital storefront to deliver hundreds of thousands of movies and TV shows, many of them free.

That’s where most of the “good” stops. Phillips also thinks the Silk web-browser is crap, which is really disappointing.
