5.0 out of 5 stars This case is wonderful! June 25, 2010
By Dan Jay
Color Name:Black Leather
Originally, I had purchased the red version of this case, which had bad build quality problems. I went to my local Target (which stocks these), and determined that while many of the red cases exhibited similar problems, the black ones did not ... so I'd say it's safe to buy the black ones. Here's why this case is great:

1) The stand built into the cover is clever and super handy. When you're not using it, built-in velcro holds it securely in place, so that it doesn't get in the way. The kindle is very stable when using the stand - no worries of it tipping over ... allows you to sit & read while you eat.

2) The padding is thick and provides excellent protection to the Kindle. I had a Belkin sleeve briefly, and in terms of protection, this case is way better.

3) The mounting system is great - it holds the Kindle very firmly in place with virtually no wobble. It does not use the mounting holes on the side, and so it does not present the risk of cracking your Kindle that many other cases do.

4) It gives the Kindle a very book-like feel. In particular, I like holding it with the cover folded around the back, as it makes the left-hand side thicker (and more comfortable for me - I have big hands ... although I don't think that small hands would be a problem either).

5) It's really a good-looking case ... I was very sad when I had to bring my red one back (it broke), but then I saw the black ones, and determined that they didn't have the same problem.

6) You can charge the Kindle while it's in the case ... although the hole in the bottom of the case doesn't line up perfectly, and puts some pressure on the USB plug when it's fully inserted.

All in all, I strongly recommend this case. I think that it's one of the best ones available.

EDIT: Also, a note to the Speck people: You have this in the wrong category. Searching for 'speck cover' in the Kindle store yields no results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this case! January 20, 2010
Color Name:Black Leather|Verified Purchase
I bought this case about a month after getting my K2 for Christmas. When I ordered the K2, I ordered the Belkin neoprene sleeve, but I wanted a way to keep the K2 protected while reading. This case is well padded, and I LOVE that I can use it book style, or stand it up while it's still in the case. I read at lunch, so this is really handy. The inside is nice and soft, and the K2 is very secure in it. I like the system they have to hold it in place, and the option of book style reading or standing it up. They've cleverly built a stand into the inside front cover.

I have a tendency to drop things, so I wanted a case that would protect the K2 at all times. And sure enough, shortly after getting the case, I dropped the K2 on an oak floor from about waist high (oops). Not a bit of damage!

I would recommend this case highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Cover March 26, 2011
Color Name:Black Leather|Verified Purchase
This is my second Speck cover for my Kindle. The first was destroyed when I tripped going down stairs and it hit the cement sidewalk. By the time I was able to get up a dog had picked it up and was chewing on it. Though the cover was destroyed, the Kindle was protected and unharmed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent case March 11, 2011
By Hilary
Color Name:Black Leather
This case is great for protecting your Kindle and easy to use.

Pros:
Fits snug
Looks nice
Soft
Black (Target has Red)
Stitched well
Durable/Protects well
Front cover folds back to make it easy to hold in one hand
Semi-slim; not very thick for how well it protects
Can charge Kindle while in the case
Fits well in most purses
Great for everyday use

Cons:
Fuzzy inside attracts pet hair; pet hair is very difficult to remove from the fuzzy fabric thus gets onto the screen
Plastic piece scratched my Kindle; had to file down the edges to ensure no further scratches occured
Stand leans when used
Limited colors available
No snap or magnet to hold it shut; gap on the side that exposes Kindle
'Leather' indents easily if left pushed up against another object (such as a button on a wallet)
Not good for protecting against rain

Overall: Not a bad case unless you have pets. Great for everyday use. Looks great. Very durable, and soft. I have recommended this case to people who want a good stand and durable case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value! September 1, 2011
By Stewart
Color Name:Black Leather|Verified Purchase
I inherited my Kindle2 (K2) from a family member that recently acquired an iPad2. The case we had was a generic neoprene sleeve that provided good protection when the Kindle wasn't in use. I wanted to get a cover/case that would protect the K2 while reading, as I already had a few close calls where the K2 almost slipped from my hands. I didn't want to get a case that used the K2 mounting slats on the side, to avoid any possibility of cracking the case. I decided to go with the DustJacket from Speck after reading the reviews for the product and am quite happy to report that I was not disappointed at all!

The case is just the right size and makes the K2 feel like a small diary. The quality of the case is quite nice. It's not leather but looks similar to leather. It has very nice stitching around the case. The case is quite versatile, you can open it up or fold id back and hold the K2 while reading or use the "easel" and stand it up like a picture frame to read without holding the K2. The "easel" is held by velcro, so you can tuck it away when not in use. The inside of the case has a fleece-like surface, so your K2 won't get scratch. The mounting system is a hard-plastic back that has a lip at the bottom where your K2 sits and a top tab to hold it in place. I uploaded a photo of the case, so you can see. It feels much more securely that I expected. If you wanted to be extra secure, you should be able to fix a double-sided velcro tape on the mounting system, which should remove any doubts that it would slip off.

I've only had it for a day, so hopefully, the case will last but so far, I'm very pleased with this purchase, great product for an excellent value!

Perfect is all I can say, people ask me everything they see the DustJacket, "Where did you get that?".

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product
Seems like a decent product, fits the kindle well and offers protection against damage from dropping it. If you have one of the older kindles with the keypad, I'd recommend it.
