It should make returning a snap as well as open the door to a lot of nice (free) content.

KF vs GN
by AthenaDram / November 9, 2012 6:42 AM PST

I would recommend the KF simply because you will be tapping into a company's network who is utilizing extreme economies of scale which will ultimately benefit the user - you!

As more and more people purchase KF's Amazon is able to lower it's cost of content per user, passing savings onto you to stay competitive and increase market share. If you haven't yet used Amazon Prime it's also very good!

Quick disclaimer - I don't own a KF or GN, but I'm in the market for one too!
