First, let's not turn this into a debate about the price. Haven't we had enough of that nonsense with the book reviews? Below, is a detailed review of the PRODUCT itself, with just a minor comment on the price/value.

DESIGN:
This is Amazon's best designed cover to date. The kindle easily and securely snaps in place - there are no hinges or annoying elastic corner bands and all buttons and the power port are fully accessible. In addition, they removed all types of straps and cords. These were a problem on previous models for a number of reasons: they broke or snapped after regular use, they made the cover uncomfortable to hold, they added extra weight/bulk, and they were very unattractive. The front cover is weighted to stay closed when the kindle lies flat (it won't pop up). To be clear, there is no strap, clasp or magnet to secure it in place (just like the front flap of a hardcover book). Kindle users like myself were looking for two things: sleekness/thin fit and a case that was aesthetically pleasing that didn't scream "kindle nerd," and they delivered. This case is slim, tight, and ultra sleek. After all, the main attribute of this new kindle is its small size and weight. No one wants a cover that will negate that.

QUALITY:
The cover is made of good quality leather and has a nice feel. The inside of the front cover (the part that touches the screen when closed) is a microfiber material designed to protect the screen and avoid scratches. The section that holds the kindle in place around the perimeter is hard rubber and grips it very well. This is not "cheap" or poorly made at all. I feel like I got my money's worth.

I love the way the Kindle snaps into this case and fits perfectly--it is truly "Made for Kindle." I love that it adds so little weight, that my Verso clip-on light can clip right over it, that it opens fully so it can be held with the front folded fully back, that all the controls are flush with the edges of the cover.

But I do wish it had some sort of closure. I sewed some 1/8" elastic that I will use when I need it to positively stay shut. One star off for no closure (I'd remove only half a star if that were an option).

Now we come to the colors... Was some designer in the middle of a depression when the colors were chosen? Color taste is subjective, I know, but black, dead maroon, or jarring yellowish olive green? Not a cheerful tone in the bunch! How about a deep royal blue, forest green, or teal? Or even a rosy red? C'mon, Amazon!

I'm not going to go into a detailed description of the product as this was well done by other reviewers. I wanted to take the time to leave a very positive review for this product because the quality of this cover really impressed me. I was reluctant to spend $40 for a cover, too, but I took my chances and I'm so glad I did. The device fits perfectly in the hard rubber interior of the cover and won't move at all (in addition to being protected all around the edges, with openings for the USB/Power button and the page forward/back buttons on both sides of the device). The leather and stitches are beautifully finished and this cover really has a classy look and a secure feel. I am happy to say that I got what I paid for, in a good way! The cover doesn't add much weight to the device and can easily be held open for reading with one hand. I recommend spending a few extra bucks for this really nice accessory. I got the green version, which is actually a bit darker than on the official product picture. The leather is olive green, not apple green. Finally, here is my original contribution: the cover closed WITH the device inside (Kindle 4, Wi-Fi, 6") and securely fitted weighs exactly 275 grams or 9.70 ounces, just in case you were wondering.

I purchased this cover with the "Frequently bought together" recommendation Kindle, 6" Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers $79.99, but upon arrival instead of happily inserting the Kindle into the cover it doesn't fit! The cover is too small. Why would two items which do not go together be recommended? And why is there no size description for the cover? The Kindle has technical details: 6.7" x 4.7" x 0.40" (169 mm x 119 mm x 10.2 mm), but the cover has none. I would greatly appreciate knowing what went wrong and what my options are.

It ONLY fit the "Kindle" Kindles. So make sure you are buying the actual one to fit whatever kind of Kindle you do have/bought.

The design is okay. I don't like how it doesn't have anything to hold it closed or open while reading. You have to always have a hand on it to keep it from closing or opening. They should have added something like a magnet, button or band.

The outside does dent/scratch up easily. You will need to be extra gently it not marrying it with keys, fingernails or anything else that could scratch/dent it. Unless, you don't mind. It gets ugly after so many mares and will be less efficient if torn. (Has more of a chance of padding falling out or whatever is underneath the leather.)

My Kindle hasn't fallen out of this. I've dropped it more than a few times and it went flying spread eagle into the air and landed open face to the Kindle and didn't pop out. My Kindle was also safe, save for minor nicks from the fallout(s.) So it does hold up very well. It protects it like its supposed too. When I first got it I was skeptical but all of the Kindle covers I'd found were made this way. I wanted something that slid into place and flaps that Velcro it into place, to protect it from slipping out. Or when the it lands open face on the Kindle itself. But so far so good.

I've also opened it and read for a few hours straight with the front pulled behind the Kindle, and it hasn't weekend the binder so far. Its worn their like old leather but it hasn't become dysfunctional. In time, it probably will but that is to be expected when I use it daily and constantly pull it back like that.

So, would I recommend this? Yes. Its a bit pricey and not as thick as I'd like it to be. The design is left to be desired but it does do what its supposed to do.
