Unlike other reviewers, I don't mind paying $50 for a good cover for my Kindle DX. I don't object to the mediocre quality of the leather, either. What I object to is the weight. The Kindle isn't that heavy, but with this cover it is. Also, as other owners have noted, this case will quickly break when you accidentally open it from the back. At the very least, this cover should be re-engineered so it can't be damaged by trying to open the back cover. All it would take are some sort of corner clips that keep the device attached to the back.
So I'm looking forward to a 3rd party supplier that comes up with a cover that protects the screen without being heavy, flimsy or easy to break.
UPDATE: I recently purchased the Black Fabric Neoprene case for the Kindle DX from Amazon (BargainCell). Perfect. Not heavy. It zips fully closed for added security when carried. The Kindle is held in place by elastic on the four corners. An easy cloth handle. Under $10. An inside pocket.
Did I mention it's not heavy?!
