I have to say, it does seem expensive relative to the price of the Fire HDX, at a quarter of its price.
I was expecting a pillar box red cover, so was a bit disappointed it was more of a burgundy dark red.
However, it is fit for purpose and does its job.
No more cheapo covers that look OK but don't quite fit.
When I put the Kindle Fire HDX into the case it did snap firmly into place in a very reassuring way. Despite only being held there by magnets there is no chance of it slipping out or accidentally moving at all really. The front cover closes snugly and again is held firmly in place with no chance of it accidentally flapping open. The inside cover now feels reassuringly soft over the screen and I feel there's no need for a screen protector.
When in hand held use, the front cover folds right back and snaps firmly in place with the magnets and does not interfere with the Kindle operation at all, even when playing games. It does, however, add significantly to the weight of the device. The on-off and volume buttons are a little more difficult to access like this since you have to push part of the cover up but the buttons themselves work very well indeed.
Folded into its standing position seems very easy to me and again the magnets in the cover hold it quite rigidly once in position. It can stand up in landscape or portrait orientation, with landscape being the steadier. There's next to no chance of it falling over on a steady surface and personally have no qualms about standing it on the widow-sill next to the sink or a high shelf. However, on a shaky plane table there is probably a slight chance it will topple over. There is no facility to adjust the angle of the stand but I've never found this to be a problem.
As stated in the marketing info there is a slight air space around the Kindle speaker areas which does indeed project sound very well. With an internet radio app this works brilliantly as a good quality portable radio and adequately for music as well.
Finally the cover feels very robust. If you accidentally hold the front cover only so all the weight is on the leather "hinge" there is no sense that it might tear. After using this continuously for 6 weeks there are no scratches, marks or nicks on the leather and I feel the cover is likely to last as long as the Kindle at least.
In conclusion, despite my initial indifference to the look and feel of the cover I've now become very fond of its functionality and robust quality and would heartily recommend it.
