It arrived today and I have to say I'm thrilled with it and am so glad I went with my instincts. I'm pleased with the colour (olive green). It's not too garish and it's not black or tan. It does feel like leather so I'm not sure why people have said it feels plasticy. Maybe because it's smooth and doesn't have the texture that some leather covers have.
The front cover sits flat against the screen, it doesn't ping back up when closed and it can fold behind the Kindle when it's open (though maybe in time this would stop it lying flat against the screen). I know some people have complained about the lack of a fastening, but I didn't want one of these anyway as it would have made the case bulkier than it is now. And yes, the kindle wording is a nice touch.
It seems as if Amazon have deliberately kept the case as streamlined as possible. It's almost exactly the same size as the Kindle and adds very little extra bulk. I think it looks very stylish and I'm pleased I bought it. If I'd got a cheaper one and then had seen someone else with this I'd have definitely been envious.
One thing that hasn't been mentioned in previous reviews is that the back of the case is moulded plastic, which the Kindle sits in with a rubber seal around the edge to hold it in. It seems as though this is designed to protect the Kindle from knocks etc as it feels quite substantial and protective. The downside to this is that it does make the case heavier than maybe another one would be. It's light on its own, 118g, but adds another 50% to the weight of the Kindle.Read more ›
However, I feel the same about this as the last one, it is on the dearer side of accesories. As mentioned I bought this, and I have bought the last one for my kindle keyboard and it is a very good premium cover and so I don't feel ripped off but.......I do feel the cover could be cheaper in price and include a more robust way to secure it and so this is why I have given it 4 stars and not 5. Perhaps there should be better discounts when buying with a Kindle, I don't know. To give you an idea the Amazon Basics Ipad2/Samsung Galaxy cover is full leather, twice the size and significantly more substantial but is almost half the price.
Overall a brilliant cover which I would buy again tomorrow. I just wish it was a touch cheaper and had a slightly more texured feel to the cover which is why I gave it 4 stars not 5
covers and accessories are needed. Like the previous covers this is an official Amazon cover and a premium product with
quality leather, tight stitching and a microfibre interior. It adds a slight bulk to the Kindle which is quite welcome as the
device itself is very light. The case offers solid protection for the whole Kindle, especially the touchscreen. It's a better
fit with the Kindle than Cinderella & her slipper. The case can be folded in half allowing for one handed reading as well.
However, it's unfortunate Amazon did not listen to customer complaints. There is no magnetic hold to secure the cover in place
when its closed, and when folded back when reading the cover is free to flap about. Another issue is the price which remains
the same, its very expensive despite Amazon's promise of Amazon Basics supplying premium quality products at decent prices.
The case does add a small amount of weight, but is a lot more form-fitting than many I've seen. There is also a lack of a fastening device for the cover - whilst it is easy to flip open to read with it may prove a tiny bit too easy for those who are in the habit of carrying their Kindle in a busy bag. The leather itself is untextured and wraps completely around the cover when it's closed which reduces the grip, but when the cover is open your fingers can get a firm purchase on the interior lining.
The major downside to the cover is the price, which I think is just a fraction on the excessive side. I can't fault the quality of the cover, but think it could have been produced and sold at less of a premium, and I suspect several case manufacturers will be lining up with almost identical offerings just without the word "Kindle" embossed on them.
