I did notice that you need more pressure to turn the pages, but I consider all the advantages outweigh this minor negative.
Very pleased I got it.
The only real critiscism is the fact that the very bottom of the case and the 'band' above the keyboard (below the screen itself), is rather 'slim' for the job. It really needs some form of 'double sided sticky tape' or something to help keep it in place rather more robustly than just leaving it to chance.
Having said that, I have had no problems really - though they both tend to move a bit whilst the keyboard is in use sometimes. Which leads me to suspect that at some time in the future, I will have to replace the case. We shall see.
Other than that I think it's better than nothing - and it's cheap enough too!
I should mention that this product doesn't have a strong smell at all (similar products seem to have this problem).
I bought 2 of these, one for me and one for my partner - so glad I did! I have a kindle with the kindle leather case and light built in which i love because of the light (really good - totally not as bad as people made out so writing a review on that too!) but HATE that the sides are not protected at all.
I took a chance on this fitting within the leather case and it does, just! The leather case sits open a bit but thats ok by me.
This silicone is made well, the page turn buttons on the sides of the kindle are covered so protected. I have no problems using these with this cover on. The directional key page, up-down-left-right, works fine but the right one is not as easy to push as the case goes right up to it. The speak holes on the back are cut out and therefore no problem with sound at all.
It does have a funny smell but thats to be expected and does disapear. Its a great fit!!! only the bottom below the keypad is slightly baggy but there is no way they could have made this firmer. One word of caution though, this will stretch out of shape if you pull at it lots and keep taking on and off - I put mine on easily, without having to really stretch it and its a perfect fit. My partner on the other hand put it on, took it off, put it on again (not very careful in taking off, pulled it quite a bit) and now its slightly baggy at the top. If you want to keep putting it on, taking off then the silicone will stretch.
There are no poor made seams at all either - just hate those and again was worried about that but wasn't let down.
It does add a very slight height to the sides of the kindle and therefore you get a slight shadow on the screen but this just can't be avoided if you want this type of case.
I love it - looks and feels good and now I know its better protected I feel much happier.
- nice, thick skin, but not overly thick
- contours fit the Kindle very precisely
- next and previous buttons accurately represented
- smells bad when first arrived!
I was pleasantly surprised to find this skin was thicker than expected and really does look good on the Kindle 3G+WiFi model. It does not obscure the screen at all (on the top, left and right of the screen, there is a 1mm gap, so you can see the Kindle plastic bezel. On the bottom, it is flush with the Kindle plastic which separates the keyboard from the screen).
You can tell that Qubits have looked at the shape of the Kindle itself before moulding these skins - it fits very well indeed. The back is contoured to fit the curves near the bottom of the device. I was impressed indeed.
On first taking this bag out of the packaging, I did notice the smell. For some reason, the inside smells much worse than the outside. I showed it to a friend, who promptly wrinkled her nose and said "yuck!"
However, as another reviewer has done, I have begun to air my skin before I put it on the Kindle for good. I actually tried it on the Kindle and left it on for a few minutes. Even after this short exposure time, I found the smell had transferred to the Kindle - this soon disappeared once I let my Kindle "air" also.
I would not let this put you off purchasing this skin though. If they could make these without the smell, it would have got a five star rating. I am impressed with the quality of the mould and the fact that the buttons are also accurately represented on the skin.
I would recommend this skin to anyone who is looking for one. It does add a little to the weight of the device, however, I can't see this being a problem for myself. If you like a naked Kindle, then be aware of the extra weight.
