2.0 out of 5 stars Puts splotches on my Kindle screen :( February 17, 2011
By bxwagtd

I like this cover, the credit card holders, and have not had a problem with the hinges at all as other reviewers have, but its functionality kinda goes out the door when I don't want to use it because it has made multiple red spots on my Kindle screen! I initially thought that something funky was up with my Kindle itself until I showed my husband and he pointed out that the marks match the red credit card pockets of my case. They have wiped off but I don't really want to spend time cleaning it off every few days because of the case. I am glad that I didn't pay $125 for it, but wanted to warn everyone that it is a possibility for the color of the case to rub off onto the screen. I'm a little disappointed Kate Spade. :(

2.0 out of 5 stars Transferred Dye to My Kindle! January 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
This cover is beautiful and fit perfectly! However, I believe I received a previously returned item. The leather on the spine was wrinkled as though it had been from a "fold over" reader and there was a nick in the leather. I'd originally requested a replacement, but then I noticed a red hue to my kindle and realized that the red leather dye was being transferred to my kindle! Unacceptable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute but flawed January 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is definately the cutest Kindle cover out there, and if you are considering spending this much, then style is obviously important to you. I wish I could say that this item is as awesome as it looks. There are definately some significant drawbacks, though. First of all, it is VERY bad at showing fingerprints. The shiny surface really just shows every single fingermark every time you touch it. This may not bother other people but it really bothers me. It's feels dirty to me. Except being patent leather, I'm not really sure how to combat this problem. You can't be constantly wiping it down with a wet cloth, but a dry cloth doesn't really keep it clean. It's a problem. I guess I've never had a hand-held patent leather item before. It makes me wish it were made out of regular leather instead. I'm actually really surprised that no other reviewers have mentioned this problem.

Flaw #2 is that the patent leather creases up at the spine when you have it open. I don't mean folding it all the way back like some reviewers apparently do - I don't do that, but it creases even just being open normally. It really krinkles up, which doesn't feel nice against my hand, and also I am worried that it will permanently crease and damage the patent leather. I feel like the spine should have been made out of a separate piece of a more flexible material. This flaw seriously makes me question what the longevity of this item will be.

I am contemplating whether to keep this item or return it. I am torn because there is a serious lack of cute covers out there and I have very discriminating taste, so I am not just going to put some boring thing on there. BUT, I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the quality does not equal the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Kate Spade lover March 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
This product is just what you would expect--beautiful patent leather in a pretty gloss, classy to carry around, and comfortable to hold. Inside has a great sleeve with pockets to keep small paper items (I put the slim manual in it in case I need to refer to it). Interior lining is durable and has the signature kate spade polka dots. Overall, a classy product, and perfect amount of padding and protection for your kindle. I wish they had it in green, since I am not a fan of red, but it still looks beautiful. The only thing I would say is a downside (which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5--really it's more like a 4.5) is that I saw all the reviews on the malfunctioning of the kindle if you use the hinges, so I didn't want to risk it. Instead, it was a very easy fix to buy 4 fabric mounting squares from michaels (the kind that are like velcro--5 bucks) and attach each corner of the back of the kindle to the lining to keep it in place. So far no issues with it moving or falling off, and it feels very secure. If style means a lot to you, and you love kate spade, I would highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth It from a Devoted Folder! December 31, 2010
By Becky
Verified Purchase
I was a bit hesitant to purchase this cover for my new kindle after reviews noted that it might not be great for those who like to fold back their kindle covers. I have always read my previous kindle (first generation) this way, but was so taken with the simple yet elegant style of this cover, that I went ahead and bought it anyway. Well, I attached the kindle when it arrived this morning and the first thing I did was fold back the cover to test it. No problems whatsoever: no bubbling, no awkward stiffness, no flapping. I was able to rest my kindle on my lap, cover folded back without issue.

Is it pricey? Yes. But it looks gorgeous and holds my kindle securely, and I'm thrilled with it. If you, like me, were being picky because of you want a cover that you could fold back, or were concerned about quality, put your fears to rest. What a great purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great find! March 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
After reading some of the reviews, I was a little nervous about this purchase, although I have never had any issues with other Kate Spade products. I'm glad I took the chance, because this cover is not only cute, but is sturdy enough to provide excellent protection for my Kindle. I have not had any issues with bleeding of the red dye, trouble with the connectors to anchor the Kindle, or scratching of my screen. This cover is a steal and I think you'll love it!
