Two of the three advertised standing positions are very good; that is, landscape and portrait. Both of these involve folding the cover in the same way, so it's easy to change from one to the other. Landscape is a little more stable, but has the disadvantage of preventing access to the ports. Portrait is a good reading position and allows for charging at the same time.
The only other real folding position is the tri-fold which gives a reasonable typing position. Sadly this involves having the tablet effectively "upside down" which is a position not supported by all apps. It also has a habit of falling flat dependant on surface.
That said, even if you don't utilise the various standing positions offered by the Origami SlimShell, this is still a great case. The sleep/wake function works perfectly, and (did I mention?) the case feels fantastic. I can't stop handling my Kindle in this thing.
Not quite perfect, but highly recommended.
The kindle doesn't always wake up automatically when the cover is opened, which is a slight annoyance, and the origami stand, while clever, is not as steady as my other case.
Overall I'm fairly happy with it but it could have been either better for the price or cheaper, especially as it only fits a model which is no longer current.
I give it four stars because sometimes I find the angle of support to be a bit too vertical. I wish I could put the Kindle at, say, 30º.

Doesn't stand up on slippery surfaces, other than that it's ok but I'm sure there are better cases out there.Published 17 months ago by Neil Lester

I love this case, it fits perfectly and is easy to stand up,. The only downside is that it has to be completely open while charging, leaving the screen exposed.Published 21 months ago by Krumpet
