Cheap, nasty and feels like plastic - nothing like the one for the original Kindle.
on 29 August 2014
I'm really very disappointed in this cover. I loved my leather cover with built in light for my old Kindle Keyboard, worth every penny of the investment. It worked well, felt great, and was exactly as described - leather!
This one feels nasty, cheap and plasticy. The leather could be fake for all it doesn't feel like leather, and the front cover is so thin and stiff that any point of covering it in leather was lost long ago. It just feels like cheap and nasty plastic. Despite that, the parts of the cover which are actually plastic have a soft-touch feel to them, and actually feel less nasty than the leather parts!
If you were expecting a cover even remotely as good quality as the original cover with built in light, don't bother buying this one! It's only just arrived and I'm going to be returning it today.
