The only downside to this product is that it fastens at the back. I would have preferred the magnetic clasp to have fastened in front, but it really is only a minor niggle and for £6.99 as opposed to almost £30, I really can't complain! I highly recommend this product and supplier to other Amazon users.
The inside looks like the first picture, without the paper holding part in the lid and with nice white stitching instead of black. It also (thankfully) has the full face covering you seem from the first picture, as in it doesn't hold the kindle with 4 elastic straps at the corners (which i hate).
Apart from the misleading photos, this is a brilliant little case. The leather has a very nice feel (and smell for that matter) and the white stitch effect really does add some charm and character to the thing. The kindle fits in very well and you would have to turn it upside down and shake it very violently in order to dislodge it. The front and back of the case are lightly padded and are very comfortable to hold. The leather hinge is very supple and easily folds back on itself. The magnetic clasp thing does its job well enough.
The only issue I have with this, is that I am constantly picking the thing up, upside down. This is due to the fact that the clasp fastens round the back, not the front as with nearly anything else held closed with a magnetic clasp. But as I pointed out earlier, this will have no effect on the kindle what so ever, its just makes me feel abit silly.
Of course the biggest selling point for this case is the price. Including postage mine cost me £7.97, which considering the price of so many other kindle cases is just silly. Coupled with the fact that this is made of real, good quality leather and looks and feels very professionally made - well i think this really is a no brainer.
As others have said, the design is different to that shown in the pictures (I'm uploading a couple so you can see the actual product). It feels good to hold and looks very smart with the contrasting and very neat stitching.
The Kindle fits perfectly in the sleeve with easy access to the buttons and no slippage. Some marks have appeared on the back of the Kindle from the "suede" interior, which I suspect is related to the solvent smell (maybe the dye?).
The lamp feels a bit cheap and plasticky. It takes 3 AAA batteries so the clip is quite bulky. Pressing the little switch on top switches it between 1 or 2 LEDs on or off, and I think it's too easy to turn on in a bag or whatever and run the batteries down.
Overall it's a decent product at a very good price, but should be described more accurately.
This is NOT leather. I suspected as much from reading other's reviews but wanted to confirm that I'm another customer who's received a case that in no, shape or form is Napa leather.
I'd read criticisms of another case on Amazon that made permanent black marks on the back on people's kindles and took pains to find one that has what I needed but didn't do this. Failed. At the time of buying there were no complaints about this that I saw with this case but since that time not only have marks transferred from the case onto the back of my kindle which won't come off, but another reviewer has complained of this...
The reason the above doesn't upset me greatly is my next point - Functionally the case is great and does exactly what I need it to. It fits like a glove, doesn't obscure the buttons, isn't unwieldy or bulky when open or closed and is comfortable to hold in either hand when reading (I fold the cover back behind the kindle, use the latch to hold it there and read one handed). There are a few pockets in the cover for business cards or other plastic cards, although I don't use mine. I don't foresee a need to ever take the cover off my kindle - and over time I'll become so familiar with it the two will become synonymous - so while the marring of the nice shiny silver finish is a shame, it's not the end of the world because I won't have to see it!
My final point is the free light. I was honestly surprised to see it offered in with the cover at such a low price and considered it a bonus which made this object even more worth it over similarly priced and rated covers without. It wasn't worth it.Read more ›
