this cover is really slim! it came with the screen protector but i did not use it since i like the non-shiny surface of Kindle as it is. i think that screen is protected enough with this case.
i like it so much that i will get it in other colors as well!

Pro's

Fits the current (212dpi) Paperwhite Kindle like a glove
Front cover opens to180deg (hold the Kindle like a book) or folds back on itself at 360deg (hold the Kindle like a small tablet)
Magnet clasp is strong enough to prevent accidental opening, even with moderate 'rough handling'
The open to wake/close to shut down feature works perfectly (should help extend the Kindle's battery life)
Approx 15mm wide band of the top/bottom and one edge of the back cover is formed of rigid plastic, which will prevent wear and tear... I can easily see the cover out-living the Kindle it was bought to protect!
Due to the above construction, I would be confident that a Kindle would easily survive an accidental drop from waist height, in addition the semi-rigid front cover flap is robust enough to prevent point load damage to the screen
Once fitted cover barely adds 3mm to both the width and length of your Kindle

Con's
The 'back' is approx 2mm thick, with the 'front' flap approx 3mm thick, meaning that once fitted the cover increases the overall depth/thickness of your Kindle by ~50%
Inevitably due to the robust manufacture of the cover, it does add weight to the Kindle
Whilst some may consider this a 'Pro', I found it very very difficult to remove the cover once fitted. Not a problem if you want to fit & forget, but not ideal if you want to swap the cover.

Lastly,.... This is NOT a leather cover.... I know it clearly states in the description that it is not 'real' leather.... But the headline title is misleading as it boldly states 'Leather'. I wanted leather as my fingers sweat on faux leather/PVC... so am a little peeved that I ended up with something different to my requirement.

The case is sufficiently good & well designed that I will keep it for now, but as the seasons get warmer I shall be looking for a GENUINE leather case to replace it ;)

The case is very good quality, nice and light and fits nicely around the kindle paperwhite.
It is protected on the inside so will not scratch and then it is hard plastic where it grips the Kindle - where it comes into contact, it only touches the rubber backing on the kindle so no danger of damage.
Feels nice and light and does not bulk the kindle too much.

The only let down is the magnet - it is very strong so no worries there, but when you fold the cover back, it is so strong that it activates the auto-sleep and turns off!! I just read with it open like a book so no issues.

All-in-all - far cheaper than the official Kindle case and from other reviews, the quality are similar. Would recommend it.

Auto sleep works fine when the cover is closed. It also activates when you fold the front cover over in order to read one handed. This make this case worse than useless, since it works until you want to read one handed without having the front cover flapping around then it switches off . Magnet is obviously too strong - you would think a rudimentary test would have found out this design flaw - otherwise seems ok . sending back today for a refund - will try something else - what a waste of time

You get what you pay for in terms of the cheap look and feel. That's to be expected I guess, but more unacceptable was mine came with a scratched, bright blue clip on the front.

Nor does the case secure the Kindle in place, which I assumed it would, particularly as it promises a '100% fit'. The slightest tilt towards you beyond vertical and the Kindle falls out. This isn’t particularly a problem if you’re reading at home, but makes things precarious on public transport where the slightest jolt could send it crashing to the floor.

DEFINITELY CONSIDER EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT A KINDLE CASE TO DO BEFORE BUYING THIS.

On the plus side, it is very slim and light weight.

Bought 2 of these. Both of them close the kindle even when you bend the cover behind it (using the magnet and the Hall sensor inside the Kindle). It creates for a difficult reading position. If you can live with that I don't see any other issues with the cover.

Was impressed with the quality when it arrived. After a week the magnet kept coming out of its slot when you opened the cover, then last week the magnet slot broke. Quite disappointed with the build quality.

This makes a mockery of the Amazon product! I have both. Bought the Amazon one when I bought the Kindle, but I thought at just over a fiver I'd try this to see if its much thinner and lighter.
Well, it is a little lighter (40grams lighter) and _may_ be a little thinner. The case stays shut better than the Amazon. You can tell its a bit cheaper, but def SOOOOO much better value for money than the Amazon one.

DONT BUY THE AMAZON ONE - this one is completely fine! Brilliant for a fiver!

Is there nowhere to report false advertising?? The title says LEATHER - it is NOT LEATHER. Grrrrrrrrrrr. It is plastic. It may be a great product (or not) for a plastic case, but the title should not say that it is LEATHER.
