I like this case very much. but I took off 2 stars for the following reasons:
1. When I bought it, it was advertised as "Genuine Leather". When I received it, the smell of vinyl was unmistakeable. They have since changed the writeup to state "imitation leather".
2. The magnetic latch which is supposed to hold the case closed securely, is WORTHLESS. Magnets are not strong enough to penetrate the case to hold the flap shut. Didn't even know there was a magnetic latch when I bought it -- they must've updated the description. I was considering adding a velcro flap to hold it shut before I realized there were magnets and they were supposed to work! That's how necessary it is to keeping this closed when traveling with it.
The design is very nice and makes it easy to read in the horizontal position (web pages, movies, etc.). Kindle is held securely.
I'm sending this back for replacement and hope that I just got one with defective magnets....I will report when I receive the new one.
