Stand works well in either orientation.
There is a notch on the side of the plastic insert that lines-up with the mini HDMI port. Good! I can leave the case on when connecting the Fire to my TV via HDMI.
However, there is not a notch for the power cord? In other words, to charge the Fire, you need to remove it from the case. Removing it from the case is not difficult but, why no notch for the power cord? I'm going to presume most people will charge the Fire much more often than hook it up to something else via the HDMI port.
Do not buy this case!
First the good points, because there are a lot of them in the Marware Axis Rotating Case.
1. Love the notches on the inside of the cover that allow you to position the case in a variety of different positions SECURELY, unlike the Amazon Kindle Fire Cover that has no such mechanism to prevent the case from sliding on a slippery surface and falling flat. The notches work well in both landscape and portrait mode.
2. The elastic band that secures the cover in a closed position is a nice touch and gave me more comfort when I carried my Fire in my purse. Also doubled as a nice place to hook a pen or stylus when carrying both.
3. The handy hand strap on the inside of the cover is a great feature, but set back just a tad too far for me to use it comfortably. I guess my hands are smaller than they had designed it for ;)
4. For the same money as the Amazon Kindle Cover, there are a lot more features to this case.
5. Nice color, the case looks very sturdy and well made and durable.
But as others have said, and I will reiterate: The fatal flaw here is that you can't charge your Fire with the cover closed, or you have to take your Fire out of the cover.
In defense of the designers, at first glance, this does not seem to be a huge issue, and I can imagine that many people reading these reviews might think it pretty trivial. Except that it's not. It becomes a major issue very quickly.
And so, a little reluctantly, I will stick with the Amazon cover and return the Marware. I might say that Marware Axis would be the perfect cover, except for the charging issue.
1. Nice Leather
2. Kindle goes to sleep automatically when you close it - I like that a lot
3. Provides excellent protection
4. Looks classy and feels good to the touch
5. Kindle snaps securely in place with no straps in the way
6. Connectors are protected on the inside of case
1. Connectors are on the inside of case - which means the case has to be open to plug in the charger. Since the Revolve version rotates 180 degrees, you could rotate it around to plug it in with the cover closed.
2. Seems upside down for some programs. I want to open my case like a book, but some programs are locked in one direction either vertical or horizontal and seem to be with the connectors on the outside so I have to turn it around or open it "backwards". I think this is what bothers me the most about the case.
3. I was looking forward to using the angle support for sitting it up on a table, but it feels more upright than I want it sometimes. I don't know if any case is more adjustable but often I would like to tilt it only a little such as 18% or 30% instead of a minimum of 45%.
4. It is a bit heavy. I think there are cases that are lighter weight if that is important to you. For me, I'm ok with it because of the features.
Conclusion - For the price, I would purchase it again but if I had extra money, I might be tempted to purchase the Revolve
1. You cannot charge the Kindle while it is closed in the case. I ended up cutting a hole in the case with a utility knife because I needed it and didn't have time to return it before I went on vacation.
2. You cannot stand the Kindle up in portrait view to read using this case, you can only stand it up using landscape view. This would work ok if you were only streaming movies (and didn't need to charge it), but it is easier to read in portrait view.
3. After I cut the hole in the case, you cannot stand the Kindle up in landscape view and charge it at the same time. The port is at the bottom where the Kindle rests on the bottom part of the case, so you cannot charge while viewing.
The material for this case is nice, but other than that, I would not recommend this case and would have returned it had I not needed it immediately.
One reviewer wrote that you cannot place the Kindle in portrait view with this case. This is not true. The part that clips onto the Kindle rotates, so both landscape and portrait view are possible.
