- None But I Will Update Later (If i find any cons)
- *Update* Dec 1, 2012 - The strap that holds the corner of the device on near the headphone jack covers the port, slightly. This is sort of an inconvenience and not truely a problem. I can plug headphones in just fine but have to move the strap a bit when doing so. This does not compromise the ability of the strap to hold the device whatsoever, so it's not a big deal.
_Bottom Line_ Yes, I would recommend this to a friend looking for a premium cover without the premium price tag some other covers carry. Even with the cover on the speakers sound great! The sound is directed outward toward the user and sounds better than using the Fire without the cover. I could go on an on about how great this cover is!
Update: Dec.4th -- Another stinker!! When returning the first cover, I selected "replacement" as I really love the look of the cover and thought maybe it was just a quality control issue on that one cover or that batch of them... so thought would give the company another shot. Just received the replacement today - this one reeks as well! It's not just me - my husband and daughter recoiled from the odor as soon as i removed it from the Amazon mailing envelope... the case wasn't even out of its packaging yet and smelled so bad we can't stand it. Returning this one as well and will not order this one again!
Has 2 built-in stands that lets your kindle sit at different angles. Great for reading before going to sleep or watching ESPN while away from home (I have mobile Clear 4G Service).
Strap easily secures the cover together.
Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great cover for your kindle and a very awesome price.
P.S. I guess I got lucky since my particular cover did not have bad smells or what not associated with it unlike the above unfortunate individual who reviewed this product.
I have tried airing it out for days but the smell remains. I have ordered another brand of cover which just arrived today. Hopefully, this cover will not smell.
Pros: It is handsome, sturdy, lightweight and does what it's supposed to do - holds your K-Fire 8.9. It does the following: turns the tablet off and on as you close and open the cover; holds the tablet securely; provides 2 positions to view the tablet in; and provide back and front protection. The exterior is attractive, better looking than the photo conveys, with a suede-like texture.
FYI: This cover will provide basic protect from contact damage, like scratches, etc. It won't provide impact protection. The Fire is held in place by 4 strong elastic pieces, so the tablet could fall out if it is dropped. Most likely that wouldn't happen, but that possibility should be noted. Also, there is no place to hold a stylus. However, if you have a stylus that had an attachment to plug the headphones hole, you can store a stylus that way. The stylus will be held inside the cover via the plug, and lay along the spine.
A significant issue, already noted by another reviewer: this cover really does smell!! Strong chemical smell. Of course, every molecule of the cover is synthetic, so a smell isn't unexpected. I will leave the cover open (without the Fire inside) and hope that the smell fades away.
As for the price - with a 30% discount offered through the Amazon Local program, I paid $30 for this cover, tax & shipping included. That is a fair price. the original price of $40 is TOO MUCH, in my opinion. An appropriate price would be $20 to $25 plus shipping and tax.
I withheld one star because of the smell and the regular price, not for any other reason.
