4.0 out of 5 stars Super stylish, perfect fit for Fire HD 7" September 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
When I ordered this simultaneously with my pre-order of the Kindle Fire HD I was a bit skeptical that it would fit the new Fire HD 7" correctly.
I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived on the same day (Sept. 14th) as the new Kindle and it fit perfectly! The elastic straps inside hold the device in tight (but not TOO tight) and the case dimensions are in fact perfect for the Fire HD 7". None of the ports or speakers are blocked (you'll need to put it into the case so the Power & HDMI ports are facing out of the open side) and I can fold the back of the case over to read comfortably, or prop it up to watch a show in either rotation.

The case is super stylish and really does look like the classic composition notebooks from back in the day - so when it's in my purse or bag I don't think anyone would instantly pick it out as a tablet or e-reader..which I especially like. I bring my Kindle everywhere with me and hope that if, from a short distance it really looks just like a plain ol' composition notebook perhaps people won't try nicking it from my bag.. at least that's my hope/theory.

The only negatives I see with this case is that doesn't fully protect the device on all sides - so I have to be a bit careful about how I store it in my bag. Also, the price is rather steep ($49.99 when I bought it) considering it's not leather. It appears to be essentially plastic materials over stiff (but nicely padded) cardboard. It had a plastic-y smell at first when new--but I didn't mind the smell at all (it wasn't noxious--just "new plastic" smell). I get that it's stylish - and right now as new as the Fire HD 7" is it's hard to find cases that are available and fit..but it's priced about double what I feel it's worth. (Sure seems like it should be $25 or less.)

Despite the price - I really like it..and if it wears out, I'll probably buy another.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nifty Looking, But Not as Practical November 5, 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I believe that one thing almost everyone who has gone to school in the United States has in common, its that at some point we all carried around one of those marbelized composition books. This Kindle Fire cover grabbed my attention simply because it looks so cool, and would make an eye-catching cover for my Fire.

This is a no frills cover. What you see is what you get, basically two lighly padded cardboard pieces which hold the Fire in place with 4 elastic bands. And while the cover looks pretty cool, I prefer my original (cheaper) cover instead.

There are covers out there that allow you to stand the fire up both vertically and horizontally, this one does not. There are covers that also provide you with straps or strings which secure the flaps of the cover around your Fire, and this one does not. And finally, there are pleny of covers that sets the Fire with a very snug fit so that the Fire's footprint remains the same. This one does not. When the Fire is set in this case, the entire area goes up about 1/2" on the right and about 1.5" on the left, which sounds nit-picky sure, but I prefer the smaller footprint.

If you want a bare-bones, no frills case, then have at it. But if you want your case to enhance your reading/viewing experience, then this case isn't for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with iPad mini November 16, 2012
Had to give it a shot even though the iPad mini has a 7.9" screen and it fits great. The elastic straps are pretty tight but stretch into the perfect shape to fit the new tiny iPads. The top left strap just misses the headphone jack and the top right goes in between the vol up and mute/orientation lock. I am very interested in a dodocase but this one for half the price this is a perfect alternate.

Can't get over the very cool office desk camo design too. Just hope my kids don't mistake it for their scribble pad.

3.0 out of 5 stars A so-so economy-priced case November 23, 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What attracted me to this case was the comparatively low price and the retro look of the classic composition book. It's been almost five decades since my classroom days, but I remember filling up a lot of those composition books. I'm afraid that I was mostly disappointed by the case, however. I didn't expect it to look or function as well as the much more expensive leather cases on the market, and it didn't, but it still fell below what I hoped for. Here's my summary of the pluses and minuses:

Pluses
* The case is made of a vinyl-like material over what feels like thick cardboard. It should wipe clean fairly easily, and it's strong enough to protect the Kindle Fire HD screen.
* If you accidentally leave it laying around somewhere, it's not too likely to be stolen. After all, who would steal a composition book?
* The front cover folds flat against the back cover for hand-holding.

Minuses
* The material that connects the front and back covers is flimsy enough to let the front cover "wobble" (for want of a better word) and move around a good bit.
* The Kindle Fire HD is attached to the back cover with four thin elastic loops. They work okay, but I prefer cases that have a more secure attachment mechanism. The loops make me a bit nervous. If one of them breaks or slips off, you could lose an expensive tablet.
* The very simple design of the case doesn't allow you to prop the Kindle Fire HD at an angle (or angles). For me, this is a major deficiency.
* The edges of the Kindle Fire HD are exposed and relatively unprotected, and the HDMI and power ports are exposed to dust.

Overall, the Verso case is a decent case that may be satisfactory for those wanting a bare-bones economy case for their Kindle Fire HD, but it's a little too bare-bones and flimsy for me.
