4.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit, 23 Nov 2012
This review is from: Marware MicroShell Folio Lightweight Standing Case for Kindle Fire HD 7", Black (will only fit Kindle Fire HD 7" [Previous Generation]) (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (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.

I know what you mean about the cover being back to front but if you unlock the screen, rotate it then lock it again upside down the cover is on the left which feels right, and the on/off button is at the bottom of the Kindle, which feels more natural to me - just an idea!
