Top Customer Reviews
- A very sturdy and well thought out case, which has the 'leather smell' you'd hope for.
- The hook system for attaching the Kindle is well thought through and works well.
- The colour (mine's green) is great! Not at all lurid as I had worried- actually very pleasing, and I'm glad I didn't go for black.
- The elastic IS a little loose. For me this isn't a problem, but you might not like it depending on preference.
- The price is too high. £15 is a much more reasonable price point for this product. You're paying for the (presumably patented) hook system. Though it's just about worth it, I still feel a little peeved about this.
A great cover, which has no flaws aside from its price.
I don't want to blitz my device, so I'm going to take it out of its cover for a while and see if it changes things.
It's a shame, as otherwise it was the perfect tool for the job.
Check out this discussion, which nails the problem:
- connecting *only* at the Kindle's edge is a bit flimsy. It felt like it might crack the casing if I was even a little bit too vigorous (e.g. if I dropped it and the cover swung open).
- it appears to cause your Kindle to reboot intermittantly and unexpectedly, but at least once a day:
This happened to me almost every day I had it in the cover. I can only think of a few days when it didn't.
Removing my Kindle stopped the reboots, and they haven't happened since, so I returned the cover.
On a more practical note, the hinging mechanism for attaching the kindle is metal and looks quite sturdy. The leather is of an acceptable standard and is well stitched with a sort of thick felt interior which looks like it should do a reasonable job of protecting the device from knocks and scratches.
All in all it is a nice thing but I think it is quite over-priced for what it is. A £15.00 - £20.00 price tag would have been far more justified.
Yes, it is expensive compared to some of the third party cases out there, but non look as good as the official ones and there is a good selection of colours to choose from.
Seriously, could you get your Kindle out on a train in anything other than an official case?
