3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I'd hoped for given the price, 24 Nov 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Lighted Leather Cover, Olive Green (will only fit Kindle) (Accessory)
It finally arrived but it's not what I'd hoped for, the colour is even duller than the picture looks and whilst the flip out light is cool, yes, it has a cheap feel to it. I'm not convinced it's worth the price. It won't obscure any part of the kindle and it doesn't need batteries etc etc BUT there is just a BUT that I can't quite put my finger on.

Oh but thumbs up to Amazon customer service for keeping me updated about the delay times, actually managing to deliver by the original date given, despite having sent a few updates to say otherwise and then giving a gift certificate for the inconvienience (I'd bought another case to see me through so it was appreciated)...gotta love Amazon's customer service, they make shopping easy and usually sort out problems well.

The same thing has been bothering me since mine arrived last week - the quality just isn't there to match the price. I think I finally cracked what it is that's been bugging me: the front cover feels like a paperback book!

why can't they produce an all new kindle cover that isn't so drab - surely it can't be that difficult. All the ones I've seen that I like don't come with a light. I've tried the detachable light with is very cheap and tacky and I wish I could find one that pulls out at the corner like the light on my original kindle cover. Come on Amazon it isn't 1985 we expect more these days - something stylish an tasteful. The current lighted covers are so BORING. I don't want to spend £49.99 on something that isn't pretty!

You are so right, and the fact that it hasnt got any kind of clasp to hold it closed and ensure the screen stays protected makes it worse!!

I was going to order 1 until I read your review. Buying as a present for my wife. She bought me the old kindle and cover which is brilliant. This cover has a light but it sounds as though in every other way it is an inferior product. I'll look around for better alternative. Thx
