Well, as many of you probably know, Otterbox doesn't make a case for the Fire, nor, as far as I know, do they plan to. ( I wonder why )
So I checked out many of the cases available for the Amazon Fire both online and at local stores but couldn't find one that I was happy with.
Then I came across a post on the internet regarding cases and the Gumdrop line of cases was mentioned and given very good reviews. Plus, they had one for the Fire! I checked their website and sure enough, there it was.
It looked good. Sturdy, thick rubberized material around the edges and it came with a " plastic (?) " built in screen cover.
I ordered it and I'm glad I did.
The case is great! I have no fear of dropping the Kindle while it's protected by this case. It's extremely well made and the grooves around the entire case make holding it very secure. It won't slip out of your hand.
I'd certainly recommend this case to anyone looking for top-notch protection of their Kindle Fire. I would even go so far as to say that it's in the same league as the famous Otterbox line of cases.
I do feel however that the $50.00 price tag for the case is a little too high. Forty dollars or so would probably make this case
a better seller. Also, although the all black is nice, a small touch of color ( maybe a stripe around the border ) would add to it's beauty.
Again though, all in all, this case is a winner ----hands down! Michael K.
UPDATE --- one hour later.
I just checked the Gumdrop website and see that they now offer the case in green or blue too.
It does however say that those colors are back-ordered until March 2012
1)Great fit for Kindle Fire, perfect size
2)Silicone makes it easy to hold on to Kindle Fire
3)The built in screen protector protects it from getting scratched
4)The case is very well built, very durable
5)The case looks awesome on the Kindle Fire (wish they had more color)
1)The price; $50 dollars is a lot of money for average consumers to spend on a case
Overall, the pros outweigh the con. Yes, it may be an expensive case, but this case is worth every penny if you really want to protect your Kindle Fire. Thank you for reading my review and hope it helps you decide if its is indeed worth investing
Audio comes out fine, dont know if the rubber hinge for the USB charging will last long but we shall see
Only downside is the cost is a bit much $50.00. The $30.00 range would have been more comfortable based upon the total fire cost of $200 only reason it lost 1 star. The product is great.
Well my kindle over heated.... :( SOOOOOO mad! I was so happy at first it was awesome because it was so thick never thinking that the rubber would hold in so much heat. I wasnt thinking I guess. Now my kindle overheated!!
I put it on with no problem but the screen cover gave me the impression the screen was greasy or there was a sort of film I didn't remove from it.
The rubber is very nice and durable but it attracts lint, dust and every single hair within range of it. Not awesome if you have pets.
The biggest problem is the Kindle Fire produces a fair amount of heat on the back. The rubber of the case is almost exclusively around the back of the Kindle. There is really no way for it to vent at all. I noticed I was having to plug in to charge for every 45 minutes of use when normally I can get at least a few hours of running apps before a charge.
The only plus was that my son dropped the Kindle on my kitchen floor and the case saved it from damage. But I still had to take it back off before it killed my Kindle.
The other thing I love is the screen saver. I always have such a hard time getting screen savers on without bubbles. I bought one for $25 with my Fire that I threw away when I couldn't get it on right. This one is ridged so it's not an issue. That right there would have paid for 1/2 the price of this cover. And the screen saver piece is replaceable.
Additionally it's very well made and very sturdy. Over all I can't say enough good about it.
