This is the first time I have ever seen a Kindle cover of any kind need to come with instructions. And believe me you are going to need them, so make sure you don't throw out the bag the cover comes in. The instructions are in the bag.

Unfortunately for the price I would have thought that this product would have looked a little nicer, perhaps reflecting the price you pay in its appearance.

The Fire slides (not easily at all) into the covers clamps and then you need to press down on the the Fire to get the last two clamps to get the Fire in and locked. You need to press hard and I was NOT comfortable in doing so. I had visions of breaking the screen on the very first attempt at using this.

OK I did it anyway, no huge problems. The big problem arises when you you want switch the cover from reading and holding in your hand, to changing it for watching movies or listening to music. If you want to stand the Fire up you need to get the Kindle out of those last two clamps you've locked it into, and let me tell you it was no easy task. I literally had to manhandle it out of those clamps

The fact that there is the smallest of chances that you could perhaps damage your Fire if you aren't very careful is a drawback to this product.

Edited to add- after a few uses it DOES eventually (the clamps) loosen up enough that you no longer have to use brute strength to get the Fire in and out.

Unfortunately it only puts the Fire into one position, and that is only for watching video. I was not aware at the time that I ordered this that there were going to be others far cheaper that made it easier to read books.

Great cover if all you need it to do is protect the Kindle. I feel this thing will last a maximum of maybe 2 years. The strap that holds it closed will get loose or tear off and the cover will flap in the wind. The bend in the 'leather' when you hold it sideways? That's going to wear out and create a seam/ tear. Better than nothing, tho.

But I agree with everybody else: It's over priced (maybe worth 25 or less).

Also, there was an 'instruction manual' inserted with this thing that shows you how to do it (snap off the bottom and fold the back). I don't understand how people are saying they had to figure it out themselves.

At first glance, I liked the smooth leather (though somewhat thin) and nice stitching. It appeared that the case would hold the Kindle Fire solidly and protect it. The "elastic" strap was somewhat weak, a concern for me "down the road". The real deal breaker was getting the device to the viewing or stand position (let alone typing). The back must be bent to get the device in a position to view. Well, it would simply not stay put at that angle. Perhaps once it's broken in, but would it end up tearing? At $45, I think this case is at least $15 overpriced. I sent it back the day I received it, and have already ordered another case from Oberon Design. They cost more, but check them out and you'll clearly see why.

This case is so not worth $45.00,$25.00 maybe.I was expecting so much more for that much money.The case I bought for my kindle 3 was so much better than this one and it only cost $20.00 and I got another one for a good review on it.So two for the price of one.I will not buy from this co. ever again,as a matter of fact I think they owe me $20.00 back for my putting up with their cheaply made product. It is better than nothing to protect my sweet kindle fire I guess. Maybe amazon will come up with a better one later.

Love my new Fire, but the Marware leather cover is over priced and looks a bit on the cheap side. The elastic band to close the cover seems destined to wear out quickly... and the hand strap is not adaptable for horizontal viewing--you still will need both hands for video viewing. I will not return it, as it is suited for the Fire and does hold it tightly, but when (and I do mean when) the elastic snaps, I will look for another option.

I'm returning the item. It is over-priced compaired to others and cannot be justified because the design and quality are not as good as they make you to believe.

I was very disappointed in the quality of this item. It doesn't feel or look like leather and the strap is cheap elastic so it would probably break in a short amount of time. The clips to hold the Fire are difficult to use and if you want to set it up horizontally, you need to unclip two of the corners. I expected more from this so I will be returning it and getting something else.

I have to admit I am surprised by this case, though not in a good way. I was expecting better. I'll start off with the positives and end with my negative thoughts. I have had this case now for about 5 weeks.

On the positive side this case is sturdy and will protect your Kindle Fire. I'm deployed to the desert right now and have actually dropped the KF in the case and it was fine. The corners are well protected and the covering is thick. The elastic strap holds the KF in the case well enough. The KF is held very firmly in the holding brackets, but not so much that it is difficult to get out if need be. The stand positions are another matter that is discussed below. The elastic hand strap that can be used to hold the KF for reading, works well enough. The good thing about this case is that it looks nice and does provide a good deal of protection for the KF.

Now for the negatives. First off I bought this case because my boss has it and highly recommended it. I personally think that for $44 there are comparable cases out there for 1/2 the price. The landscape position in which to watch movies does not work very well at all, I have to continuously keep adjusting it. In fact in my experience it is useless to the point I don't even us the stand anymore. The felt covering on the inside of the case continuously leaves marks on the actual screen of my KF and has gotten very annoying. There are a lot of other cases out there that have all the features this has case, minus the landscape viewing stand and hand strap, but at 1/2 the price. This product was over priced at $44. If I had to do it over again I would have purchased different case, but I am not so dissatisfied with it that I am going to buy another one any time soon. If you decide to purchase this it will protect you KF, but not much beyond that.

I bought the Fire at Best Buy, but they didn't have any cases that fit the standard Fire, only the HD (and the Best Buy salesman didn't even know there was a difference in size between the two). So I ordered the case separately from Amazon (obviously without seeing what it really looked like, other than the tiny picture on the website). I used to have a basic Kindle, and the Amazon case for that device fit very well and seemed quite sturdy. So when I bought the Fire, I thought the Amazon case for that model would have a similar "fit and finish" to my previous case, except that it would have a leather cover. When the case finally arrived, I was disappointed in the design/configuration, compared to the previous case. I had no complaints about the materials or workmanship; the leather covering was fine. But the way the Fire "clips" into the corner tabs is a bit awkward and doesn't look like it will hold the Fire securely over the long run. Also, the way the cover is supposed to be folded to make it into an easel isn't as functional as it appears, and it only works in the landscape format. And when the cover is closed it just barely covers the Kindle. The hinge part of the cover is too soft, so the cover and base don't stay lined up with each other when the case is closed, even with the elastic strap in place. And that's only going to get worse as that fabric-store elastic begins to stretch out. It's not a replaceable strap, either.

I don't like anything about it. I don't like the way it opens, I think it is very sloppy and not confortable when using it. If I didn't throw away the original package I would of returned it....
