Good but ot perfect – Protective PU Leather Case for Kindle Paperwhite - Black Reviews

posted by Popup on 12/11/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It feels fairly solid and would definitely protect the Kindle pretty well. It's just the right size for the Paperwhite, with openings for the connector and on/off switch.
Cons:
It DOES NOT incorporate the proper magnets to switch on/off automatically when you open/close the cover! All the 'official' covers from Amazon does this, and I assumed that this one would as well, but it doesn't.
Other:
It's a pretty snug fit, and it won't fall out by accident. But there's no physical strap holding it in place. The inside is a kind of suede-like surface which gives pretty good friction, though. Especially against the rubberised back of the Kindle. It's pretty thick, and almost feels clumsy. Still, that means that the protection from physical shocks is probably pretty decent.
Bottomline:
Good, but not Great.
