I am very happy I chose this cover for my Fire HD 8.9". There are many to choose from but this has so many nice features for a great price. The straps are very strong and keep the device in place and the cover closed. Its easy to open, fold, and carry. The material is very soft and easy to handle without being slippery. I love that when I close the cover I know with confidence that the screen is off and I'm not wasting battery. Made from synthetic leather but has the look and feel of real soft leather.

+ Quality Construction
+ Soft Durable Feel
+ No More Searching for the Sleep Button
+ Screen Comes ON/OFF When Cover is Opened/Closed
+ Strong Straps to Secure Device
+ Unique Style, Looks Like a Book
+ Easy to Remove Device
+ Easy Access to Ports and Power Button
+ Price Compared to Other Covers
+ Not Heavy or Bulky

- 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!

More than happy with the look of the cover. That was the main reason I purchased it. Also, I was fortunate not to experience that chemical smell several other reviewers mentioned. My one issue is that the Kindle does have tendency to slide around in the case. I was fully aware of the elastic that secured the Kindle in each corner prior to purchasing it. I have had that in other covers. I expected a better fit. Not a deal breaker for me at this point just anoying.

I am really devastated. Waited forever to get my Fire HD, then also waited to order a case as was specifically looking for a Verso cover as have one for my old Fire and love it. This one arrived and absolutely reeks of a horrible chemical smell! I left it out of its package overnight, still smells and now my Kindle fire does too even though it's metal and plastic so shouldn't absorb odor. Sometimes coldness can eliminate odor so even tried leaving the case in the freezer to fix it, to no avail. Can't believe it is so bad and has wrecked my Kindle as well, will be returning and contacting the company. Am guessing the manufacturer just rushed their process somehow to get this batch shipped... it's a beautiful case otherwise, fits well... likely just luck of the draw if you get one that is from a good batch or one like this.

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!

Had amazon's 30% off coupon so bought this at $30 (tax included). Design looks great and is reminiscent of those books written during the dark ages (or if you're a hardcore gamer, it's reminiscent of books from Elder Scrolls Oblivion). Kindle goes to sleep when the cover closes. Charging port and HDMI output face outside so can charge up the kindle while the cover is closed.

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.

Although this Cover works great as advertised, I can not use it because of the smell it omits. It makes my eyes water and gives me a headache and dizziness when I am reading the Kindel in it.

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.

I had this same reader cover (and that is what it is), for my first Kindle.

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.
