Sturdy and light with a rubberized cover, it's like having a Batman cloak for your Kindle Fire HD. Easy to fit and unlike many a mobile case the plastic clip is is very solid and secure. It's tricky to get the Kindle Fire out again, but that's no bad thing. It has already saved my tablet from my daughter spilling some milk on it, and it wipes clean. All sockets are easily accessed through the case and the stand helps to keep the device the right way up and make it clearer where the on/off and volume buttons are. When stood the case even enhances the sound. The folding cover keeps the screen nice and scratch free. I haven't dropped it yet, but it looks like it would just bounce a little and keep your tablet intact.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I already had a cheap eBay case for my Fure HD, but this just looked so sleek... I have to say, I'm very pleased with it. It is very lightweight for a start, a good thing as the Kindle is not all that light itself! The outer case feels similar to a hard shell suitcase, I think it's the same sort of material. Not as nice looking as leather, but it doesn't look cheap either. The inside is lovely and soft, and I feel very safe having this touching my Kindle screen. Like all cases I have seen, the case is kept closed with an elasticated strap, but this particular one sits further back than others I have seen and seems much more likely to keep the case in place. It's so easy to snap the Kindle in place, less easy to get out again as I found when I put it in upside down! However, my husband popped it out with no problem so I think this might be a problem specific to me... To me, having the Kindle sat on the left with the cover on the right is back to front, but when I read, I fold the sleeve behind the Kindle and hold it in place with the strap, and this is very comfortable and easy to hold. When watching films, it's really easy to use the foldable cover as a stand and it feels sturdy. All in, I'm very impressed with this case.

Colour Name: Purple Verified Purchase
The Malware cover is quite pricey so I had high expectations. The good points: It feels durable, protects all corners, and has access to all of the relevant buttons, the latter being a real bonus as many covers don't have that. It's nice and slim so keeps the Kindle neat. It also has an elastic band on the back to hold the cover open or closed but I have never felt a need to use it because it stays closed fine without it.

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!

Anyone with a Kindle Fire HD will need a case but as with Apple products, the cost is in the accessories and this isn't any different. Yep, I think £30 is a bit pricey that's around 20% of the cost of the Kindle. However, the quality of the case is impressive and sometimes feels like it was part of a futuristic movie prop. All the holes line up perfectly and it's a snug fit without feeling you will scratch your prize possession should you want to remove it from it's case.

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.

The packaging was not the best but the case is superb. It's light and durable and is a perfect snug fit. I previously got a material case for the kindle which to be fair was also excellent but this offers extra protection and doubles as a stand which came in very handy on a flight recently on a no frills airline. Being able to take my kindle made the flight much more enable.

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.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I bought my first Kindle, I bought one of the Amazon leather cases to go
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.
