The not so good points in my view: I ordered purple and was disappointed that only the back is purple, the front is black. Not a big thing but I couldn't see this from the picture so this is so people are aware. I feel the stand-up mode makes the Kindle stand too high so the angle is wrong. You can only stand it one way and that's landscape - at the wrong angle (for me).
General: If you put it on, make sure it's the right way around, once on, it's a devil to get off again!
The bonus of course is it doubles as a stand and seeing as the Kindle was devised primarily as an ereader, it's good to prop it up on your stomach when reading in bed.
So, in short, quality is spot on but £30? I don't think it's worth that much, hopefully the price will drop over time.
This cover will protect in your luggage and also from anywhere it might pick up light scratches such as the wife's keys in her handbag.
I haven't used the material case since so would definitely recommend the Marware MicroShell Cover if you are undecided.
with it. I found that it added a lot of weight, though I did like it. Later,
I found a neoprene sleeve in a supermarket for £5, and that's ended up being
the case that I use most of the time.
When I bought my Kindle Fire HD, I didn't see any sleeve-type cases that I
liked, and so I opted for a Marware Vibe case. I'm pretty happy with it, but
there are a couple of drawbacks: firstly, it seems quite heavy (and the Fire is
no lightweight itself); and secondly, unless I want to mount the Fire "upside
down" (with the camera at the bottom), it's not possible to charge it when the
case is closed. When I got the chance to try the more expensive Microshell
case for free, I thought it would be a good opportunity to compare the two.
I was hoping that it would be lighter than the Vibe. "Microshell" seems an apt
name for it, for it's a thin shell that effectively wraps around the Fire.
(Well, the Fire fits into the main body, and there's a rubbery flap that flops
over the screen.) To my surprise, there's very little difference; I'd have to use
scales to be sure, but I think the Microshell is slightly lighter. It's thinner
than the Vibe, and it feels like the Fire's edges are better-protected (though
there are still openings to access the volume and power switches, and the
micro-USB and HMDI sockets. This means that it is possible to charge the Fire
when the case is closed. The Microshell is far more snug than the Vibe.
The Vibe could just-about be mistaken for a notebook when closed; that's
certainly not the case for the Microshell - it looks far more like a device
cover than a book cover.Read more ›
