5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect., December 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fintie Kindle Fire HD 8.9" Slim Fit Leather Case with Auto Sleep/Wake for Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 - Black (will not fit HDX models) (Accessory)
Well, after reading nothing but glowing reviews for the 7 inch model of this product I decided on this one as my unofficial "home" for my Kindle 8.9.
It came two days early and I must say I'm very happy.
You can use it as a stand or lying flat.
It fits perfectly.
The stylus holder is nice also but could be a tad tighter.
The on off feature doesn't work 100% of the time but it's a minor issue.
It would also be nice if there was a side compartment for a cleaning cloth but also...a minor complaint/suggestion.
The inside is lined with felt (feels like felt anyway) which is also very nice but a major lint collector lol.
I've just been storing my kindle in the box it came in so lugging it to work and back has been a real pain. (I keep it in a gym bag.)
This is much better and much more professional looking.
Cheap, stylish and functional.
For ten bucks (sale price I paid) you can't go wrong.
Recommended.

I'm wondering if by saying it's leather, that they mean it is made from animal skin or whether it is actually plastic?
Also, I'm wondering if you think it will protect the Kindle? I guess if you toss the thing in a gym bag you must have confidence in this 'case Cover Auto Sleep/Wake"?

No, for ten dollars you're going to get plastic. I was bringing it to work when it was still in the original box. I have not brought it to work in this case...yet...but my gym bag has a small side compartment where the Kindle won't get jostled around much. Otherwise I would want something with more padding.

I'm confused, you review is posted under the following product, which reads it's leather and it costs $16.99, is your review for a different product?

Fintie (Black) Slim Fit Leather Case Cover Auto Sleep/Wake for Kindle Fire HD 8.9" Inch Tablet- 8 colors options

It must have been on sale when I bought it. And...it may say leather but it sure doesn't look, feel or smell like it to me.

The product description states "Made from durable synthetic leather".

The ORIGINAL description said "genuine leather". They obviously changed it and I don't bother trolling my own reviews to make updates that often.
