Great case, poor light,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TeckNet® NEW Kindle 4 Premium Folio Case / Cover With Magnetic Clasp for NEW Amazon Kindle 4 / 6 inch / 2011 generation / Book Style - Black
The case itself is great; it's well made, fits the new (September 2012) Kindle perfectly, and feels robust. I trust it with my Kindle's cosmetic and physical safety. It's not as streamlined as the official Amazon case with LED light, but on the other hand it has a magnetic clasp whereas the official case strangely has no closure at all.
The case also comes with a screen protector which I think is to prevent the dye bleed against the back of the Kindle which some customers have complained about. I guess this is what it's for, since it's too large for the Kindle's screen. The only problem is that the back of the new Kindle is sort of grippy hard rubber, not smooth plastic, so it can't be applied to it. On the other hand the new Kindle is also black, and the case is black, so dye bleed is not a concern for me.
The free LED light is okay, however the clip is quite spindly and the bulb rattles with the slightest vibration so it can be fairly annoying. The flexible swan neck works well and as long as the clip holds firm this means the light stays exactly where you put it. Unfortunately I found that the three batteries ran out in under an hour, and the spares kindly supplied in the package are unfortunately a bit short - you get two, not three.
Anyway... at 1/4 the price of the official Amazon version, this purchase really is a no-brainer.
