I had some concern that the provision of Origami folds might unacceptably reduce the rigidity of the front cover - but this has not proved to the case. I wonder if some of the cheaper copies may run into a problem in this respect.
The Kindle fits easily and securely into the back of the cover - with both volume control and on/off switch easily operated.
A particularly nice touch is the way the front cover holds closed (magnetically) - with the sleep/wake function working perfectly (particularly useful to me as a reader of Audio Books and Text-to-Speech eBooks)
No part of the screen is hidden - useful, as some indicators are displayed towards the edge of the screen.
I had to take a "deep breath" when "facing up" to the relatively high cost of this case - but having received it, and put it to use, I am truly pleased.
I can't remember who said "You will remember the quality of an item a long time after you have forgotten the price! Never a truer word was spoken.
However, having used it for a week, it does work perfectly and is surprisingly easy to fold and just looks a bit cooler than a standard case.
Some covers will accommodate a few different tablets, depending on size but this one (as stated in the description) will only fit the kindle fire hdx 7 inch. The case basically holds the kindle in place with strong magnets and is the exact shape and size to fit only that device. I was a bit dubious at first and doubted it would hold the kindle in place with no visible means of attachment but so far there has been no accidental slippage and I don't envisage any after shaking it about to test it's holding power (over a soft couch - just in case!)
The stand part is easy to operate but in the beginning it took a bit of getting used to. The origami design has it fold in on itself and is held in place by more strong magnets. It's quite clever.
It's easy to keep clean with a damp cloth as it's a hard shell and all in all it's just a really nice cover with stand. It seems expensive but it's built to last and will probably outlast the kindle itself.
The only little niggle I have, is that the 'hinge' part seems a little unstable. It's not really a hinge, it's more like a thin 'spine' and I'm sure it's just as strong as the rest of the cover it just seems a bit flimsy. Maybe it's because the rest of it is so rigid I'm noticing it more at the bit where the back joins the front but it does seem to want to flop about a bit when it's open.
I have it in the black but there are lots of olther colours to choose too.
Will definitely be returning it which is a huge shame as it's a decent case and stand in many other respects.
This case grips the kindle perfectly; I have had no issues with 'weak magnets' and the kindle slipping or falling out of the case. It covers the kindle perfectly so there are no exposed edges, which is great for a clumsy person like me! The buttons on the back work seamlessly.
The Origami side of it works very well, I can use it happily after reviewing the diagram instructions, and it took me all of 30 seconds to get to grips with it. I think it's great I you use it to view in both portrait and landscape.
I also love the fact when closed it puts the kindle on standby - handy feature. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a decent robust cover, really nice colours too. I went into waterstones to have a look at them, they are true to picture, it also gives you the opportunity to feel them and check the weight.
Overall a great product, designed to fit perfectly with your kindle. Yes it's pricey, but its excellent quality and you get what you pay for. I expect this to last a long, long time.
