I just got the 3rd gen Kindle and I quickly picked up this skin for it. I couldn't be more happy. The design is amazing and goes with the Kindle well. Some of the other designs they have are a little too much, with bright colors and graphics. This skin is a lot more subdued and fitting for the graphite color. It also looks beautiful. I find myself picking up the Kindle and staring at the back of it just admiring how cool it looks. In fact, it might look a little too cool. The thing is it can be a somewhat distracting while reading. Not enough to make me not like the product, but it may have been easier to read on the stock Kindle. I still love it, though. Now I feel like I have something unique and customized to my tastes. Its a nice feeling and takes the device to the next level. Well worth the price of admission. Applying the skin was pretty easy, although you do have to do it slowly and carefully. If you make a mistake you can peel it off and try again, so its not so bad. However the skin is fitted exactly for the size of the Kindle, so there is not any room for error. This is a good thing when you put it on perfectly, but can be annoying if you don't get it right the first time. Also, it changes the feel of the Kindle a little bit. It makes the device more glossy and slippery, while before it was more of a matte plastic/rubber feeling. In particular I think I liked the soft-touch rubber feel of the back of the Kindle better without this skin. However it is still easy to hold and its a small complaint. Overall I am happy with this skin.
