ok, i read the positive reviews on style and usability and bought one, in cream, i really didnt like it at all, it just felt ,to me, cheap. i dont feel it would take much use before the edges where the stand is mounted, would split, after all its only thin coated plastic, what i really didnt like was when closed the edges lifted/ curled outwards, like the cover of a well read book or a British rail sandwich, (that ages me), it basically left the Kindle exposed. the KIndle clips into 2 plastic corner pieces on one side, then in the middle on the opposite side, into the metal stand. to charge just fold the cover back on itself, wouldnt have been a problem for me but as i say i just thought it looked cheap. the magnetic on/ off mecanism worked ok. oh, it also made the kindle very bulky for not much protection.
