Can't fault the quality of the case, fits my kindle fire HDX like a glove. It's well constructed and looks to afford enough protection against knocks and bumps and the corners are also protected.
The stand is useless, it collapses almost flat at the hinge under the weight of the kindle.
The only other gripe is that the kindle goes into the case upside down, ok so yes you can flip it but some apps wont flip. I really wish companies would pay attention to this, it seems to be a complaint on a variety of cases.
If you want this case just for protection, then yes its certainly going to do the job.
Just don't expect a decent viewing angle when the case is set as a stand. And get used to reading the news like you are on the last page of a book!
