I had originally hoped to use my new 8.9" Kindle Fire just bare, & keep it in a heavily padded DVD player case when not in use - but after 1 day, I discovered this was a bad idea. It needed more protection in use.

First, I tried the Belkin Classic Strap Cover with Stand for Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Purple, & although it looked nice, it was made much too flimsy to even keep itself in good shape, let alone a three hundred dllr Kindle. Belkin's vinyl cover is very true to the bluish purple color in its ad, but much too susceptible to scuffs from just everyday handling to survive for long. So I added just $5 to it, & got Amazon's cover instead.

Of all the covers I looked at, I honestly feel much more confident in the safety & security of using Amazon's own cover with my Kindle Fire. Along with the rubber stand at the opening, it is rubberized all around the edges, & safely cradles this larger Kindle with nice bumper pads. Also, the Power & Volume buttons are *much* easier to find & press when using this case, than they were just using the bare Kindle. The quality of the outer surface is strong enough to be able to stand up to normal travel in your purse, tote bags, & your car without showing signs of wear & tear. Also, the magnets in mine do work to keep my cover closed. Since some people's aren't working, this is a huge plus. The one I was sent is fully functional, & arrived with no factory defects. It also effectively wakes & sleeps when the cover is opened & closed. That is a huge plus for saving battery juice.

After much internal debate and reading every review of every available Kindle Fire 8.9″ case, I finally went with the Amazon product. I think it is very well designed with cutouts for the sound (the competing Marware product covers up the sound portals), and raised covered buttons for the power and volume buttons. The texture is similar to the Amazon case for the Paperwhite. I honestly don't know if it's leather or not. If it's leather, it's awfully thin, but it is attractive. The Kindle fits like a glove (you have to exert force to get it out, and you'll likely break a fingernail) and the overall effect is aesthetically pleasing. Now, that said, it doesn't feel particularly robust. If you're looking for the equivalent of a tank to protect your Kindle, this isn't it. However, if you want your very slim Kindle Fire HD to continue looking slim and elegant, this case is perfect. I found that it does stand without too much trouble if the surface you're standing it on isn't too slick. My only gripe: the price at $55 is absurdly high, in my opinion. Come on, Amazon. This is a $30-$40 product, at most.

This borders on the ridiculous. It is an Amazon product made FOR another Amazon product, so you'd think they'd know what they were doing in the manufacturing of it all. But not a clue. Yes, it's a great case. It will protect well. Yes it has cut outs for the charging and the on/off switch. The problem is, you cannot have it in the case and stand it up and keep it connected to the AC. The AC cutout is on the wrong side. The screen will then be upside down. To plug it into the charger, which I like to do when I'm home watching TV, you have to remove it from the protective case and let it stick out...totally defeats the purpose. Not to mention it's a pain to keep popping in and out. If I charged it only., say, at night, it would work great, but I should have the option of using it while it is connected to the electric (and having it stand up.) It cost a fortune for such a design flaw. Almost $60. I'm thinking of using an exacto knife and cutting a hole on the other side, but seriously, shouldn't this have been thought about by the people who made it. I would have NEVER ordered this. I would have gotten a cheap $10 stand. Basically, as far as I'm concerned it's a warranty issue. In the state of Maryland, a product must be able to be used in a manner for which it was intended. This doesn't pass the test.

In the interests of full disclosure, I paid about $25 for this case. However, I would have been willing to pay more.

I originally bought a similar case for the Paperwhite and loved how securely the Kindle was held. My first cover for the 8.9 uses rubber bands at the four corners to hold the Kindle and the Kindle keeps slipping out of one or the other. No worry about that here -- it is in to stay! (OTOH, I didn't find it difficult to remove when I realized I left a paper in the case.)

Some people have complained you cannot prop it up while plugged in. That is true, but you cannot with most of the cases. I prop it up on the corner of a drawer and it works perfectly.

It looks like leather and it smells like leather. The purple is a pleasing color.

It appears to remain propped up -- I am using the keyboard with it propped open on a tabletop and it isn't slipping. (Not plugged in, of course.)

I don't know why Amazon feels they must charge an arm and a leg for their covers; perhaps to give other companies a market? Still, I paid $40 for the Paperwhite case and don't feel cheated. If you are looking for a secure, great-looking cover for your Kindle 8.9", you can't go wrong with this one..
