The case is a clever design and certainly different to what we've seen before. In my view, one of the best aspects of it is how easily the Kindle can be removed completely when you are holding it. The Kindle Fire HDX is so light and feels great in the hand, and this case changes things completely.Read more ›
I thus decided to buy this case though it cost 25% of my weeks OAP pension.
I rarely drop my Kindles or Fires but I have dropped this HDX 8.9" three times already both inside the case and with the case folded over. No damage. In one incident the film carried on playing.
I did discover when once picking up the Fire in case that had fallen origami side down that I found I picked it up along with many silver / gold coloured jump rings attached. (Jump rings are used to attach charms to bracelets or to join up pieces of jewellery - some too small to pick up without tweezers). What a blessing this has been. So I now purposely place the Kindle Fire on the floor near my feet after a jewellery making session to collect all the tiny dropped ring scattered about - just brush off the rings and place it on the floor again where the rings lurk.
The case also as someone else said allows sound to reach my old ears very well. My other 8.9" tablet has to be standing upright in it's Poetic case otherwise it's sound is muted.
I can watch my films horizontally on this HDX 8.9" in the case but for vertically I take the tablet out of the case and put it in a stand.
I still think the price is too high though.
That was always a problem with my iPad and I'm glad it is fixed.
I love the sturdy nature of this cover.
Downsides are not important to me:
1. It adds to the weight and bulk. In fact I think I prefer the tablet to have a bit more heft (I'm not all that strong; in case you are wondering!)
2. The slide-up facility feels a bit insecure and wobbly. I'm afraid the tablet might go flying one day!
It works on magnets, no fiddling about. Some reviewers have commented that it adds considerably to the weight, but that is only because the kindle is so insanely light on it's own. The weight does not bother me, primarily because it pops in and out so easily. If I'm stationary and care about the weight, I'll just pop it out and pop it back in afterwards. It also seems to actually have a positive amplifying effect on the Kindle speakers, adding to it's overall usage.
To summarise, it's expensive, but if you can justify the cost I really think it's worth it.

I got this for my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and it is without the worst design and most appalling waste of money. It claims to use magnets to hold the kindle in place. Well, it doesn't. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Mr. C. Peterson
Not as good as the plastic/Leather covers, which protect the tablet and are much cheaper.
The tablet can fall from the origami cover very easily which could damage the unit.
Probably the best at the price offering good protection and is nicely manufactured.Published 3 months ago by JayBee
