And by 'it works' I mean it allows you to read your kindle while floating on the pool and I can attest that it performs the function of saving the accidentally dropped device from drowning adequately (it will float) ;)
Packaging and 'handling' the kindle with it however is pretty clunky. Whenever the device turns off, you have to reopen the case, extract the kindle, slide the power button, and repackage it to be water proof. If your reading style is does not involve frequent page turning, this case is probably not for you.
Bottom line: Works as advertised but handling is clunky to annoying depending on how often your kindle goes into powersave while you use it.
My only complaint is this, and if there is a solution, I would love to hear it:
I have the K3 all nice, snug and tightly-waterproof in its red padded Waterguard. I put the Kindle aside for a few minutes and it goes to "sleep". When I return (or wake up?) -- I have to take it out of the safe, waterproof case with my wet (or sandy) hands to turn it back on. I do understand the procedure to keep it dry when opening it up, but it's a little time-consuming.... and putting openings for the power button would not be possible (and stay waterproof) so I'm not sure what the solution could be.
I tried pushing the Kindle up higher to push the power switch on but that is making a "thin" place in the clear plastic from my fingernail.
Any solution and I'll edit this to a FIVE star because it definitely keeps it waterproof.
Edited to add: great customer service! See the comment to my posting. I'm impressed with a company who cares about customer reviews! I'll 'up' the review to a 5 because of the customer service.
I don't have any fancy video to add (although I certainly watched that review pre-purchase and then demonstrated the same thing to any friends who would watch). The one slightly annoying thing is it is hard to slide the power button when the case is on... oh well, I was reading my kindle in a pool! How cool is that?!?!?! Why wouldn't you want to be reading your books while in a pool, pools are awesome.
On the other hand it makes a good case for keeping in your car keys and other items that you want to protect from sand and water.
