Nicely finished in patterned leather, with rubberised edges to hold the tablet securely - the Kindle fits very snugly into the case, and there are cutouts for the connectors, speakers, earphone socket, volume control and on/off switch without compromising the integrity and protective properties of the cover.
There is a magnetic sensor in the case that puts your Kindle 'to sleep' when it is closed, and then 'reawakens' it when opened again. This certainly saves you shutting-down and booting-up time if you used the power switch instead.
The textured surface of the case means it is comfortable and secure to hold, and the cover folds right over the back without any problems at all.
I have noted issues with the case standing securely on a shiny desk surface - the back cover especially tends to slip on occasion (not every time by any means) and the whole thing falls flat.
That minor niggle aside, and the high price, this case is obviously tailor-made for the Fire HD and is a quality addition to your kit
Update - I see the price is now around £20 - that's more like it, Amazon!
There are a few problems though:
1. It looks quite cheap for the significant price (nearly £40 when I bought it)
2. As other reviewers have mentioned, you can't charge it and have it standing upright.
3. You can only use headphones with a straight jack - if it's one of the ones with a right angle on the end, it won't fit into the headphone socket with the case on the Kindle.
4. It does stand up - but don't expect it to stay that way... Last night, I stood mine on the bathroom window sill and it collapsed from its standing position. This caused the Kindle to plunge into my newly run bath - and now I have no Kindle. I am gutted. I am aware that this was partially my fault (probably not the best place to leave the Kindle) but the 'stand up' position on this is not stable on a smooth surface. You have been warned :(
The auto on / off is brilliant and works flawlessly.
This cover doesn't add much to the dimensions and I can still get my Kindle HD in my inside Jacket pocket.
I have recommended this to all my friends who have a Kindle Fire HD
All the edges have a tacky silicone like surface which is there to hold your Fire upright as you watch video. On the outside rather than being a soft natural feeling leather on the outside of the case I think Amazon are using a pressed bonded leather. Inside the case must be a magnet as when you close the lid it locks your kindles. The tacky silicon on my case failed repeatedly to hold the Fire upright when watching video and fell flat after a few minutes on a huge variety of surfaces from my kitchen worktop, Polished Wood and a plastic airline table.
The amazon fire hd leather cover looks nice in Ink Blue but as it falls flat when watching video I am keeping my Kindle in the Timbuk2 case.
