I chose this cover basically because of the great price & the lovely colour. I'm impressed with the quality, although there are some differences from the images shown:
- The clasp closes on the back on the cover, not the front (This does have the benefit of meaning that the clasp doesn't get in the way of the Kindle screen)
- There are a lot of "Credit card" type pockets inside the front cover. My initial thought was to wonder why these would be of any use in a book over, but as another reviewer has pointed out, it could be useful for a few cards / cash for a day at the beach.
The Kindle 3 fits in the case perfectly, and doesn't move around at all (which is pretty impressive considering that it's held by two fixed corners, and 2 with elastic). It's neither too tight nor too loose, and is easy to put in and out.
The cover seems to protect the Kindle 3 well. Nothing seems to apply pressure to the screen, and there is good protection around the edge.
This case also came with a screen protector, and screen cleaner cloth. Although I planned on using the screen protector (why not, after all I want to protect my treasured Kindle), the surface is FAR too reflective, so as soon as I applied it, the screen was almost like a mirror. In my opinion, applying something so reflective defeats the whole point of the excellent "paper like" e-ink Kindle screen.
Overall, a great product, but the photos could do with updating so as to cause no confusion as to the exact product that is actually being sold.
