There are loads of different (and cheaper) cases for the Kobo out there. However, I wanted something solid, attractive and practical so I went for this based on the pitcures only as there wasn't any reviews.
The overall appearance is good. Stitching is neat and tidy and the magnetic catch clicks in place nicely.
The Kobo slides in from the top and then a flap folds over and tucks behind the reader to keep it secure. The sliding-in is tight and once in, the Kobo will not move around.
There is good access to the power slider on the top and the charge/PC link at the bottom.
I have not used the pockets on the inside cover but again, the stitching is good.
Bad points? When you open the cover, you open it backwards. The clasp is in effect, on the back which is a little odd. Also, I believe all covers for all eReaders are always on the right side on the case - which is a little inconvienient for us 'lefties'.
Overall: the positives are lots, the negatives are petty. I'd recommend this product.
