5.0 out of 5 stars Superb exo-skeleton for Kindle Fire HD 3 Dec 2012
By ArrGee
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit 23 Nov 2012
By Laura Smith VINE VOICE
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Specially designed for the HD model 21 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm very impressed with the thin but strong material for this cover, which is not only to protect your Kindle Fire HD, but it's light weighted and also very stylish. Obviously it's designed to stand, too, so you don't have to hold it all the time. But make sure that you have the Fire HD model, because it doesn't fit to the (non-HD) Fire model. The outer material feels like slightly soft silicon and NOT slippery or plasticky, so the grip is not bad.

It has two holes for the enhanced speakers for the HD model, as well as one for the USB power cable and for the HDMI cable, which only the HD model has, and the case is slightly bigger than the one for the ordinary Fire model too. If your model is the Kindle Fire but NOT the HD model, then don't order this one, but instead there are several other covers for the Fire model, such as this one: Marware MicroShell Folio Cover Lightweight for Kindle Fire, Black (will only fit Kindle Fire).

I think it's always a good idea to have a good cover for your Kindle, especially for the Fire models, as you'll use them for more than just e-books but will enjoy using them with many more functions as tablets e.g. internet browsing, the photo album, checking weather and playing music etc, so you don't want any accidental damage or scratch on the screen, and this materials is cleverly made, thin & very light, so I can recommend it to all the Kindle Fire HD users!

Hope you agree with me?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great for the Price 29 Jan 2013
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality case but relatively high price 30 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light, Durable Protection for your Kindle HD 13 Dec 2012
By I. Mcintosh VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.
