    Overall a Good Design and Stylish Case, September 20, 2012

    Purchased both this case and the Marware Axis case for our new Kindle Fire HD. Each has strengths and weaknesses. For those considering both cases, I’ll try to compare them.

    () Weight. The Amazon case (AC) is MUCH thinner and lighter than the Marware case. Whether this an advantage or disadvantage depends on several considerations, but the fact remains that the AC adds little to the weight and bulk of the KFHD. The MC swaddles the KFHD in a significantly heavier and bulkier case. Advantage: AC in everyday use.

    () Protection. The disadvantage of the MC in terms of weight is balanced by the protection it provides. The MC case is well padded; the AC is not. The MC includes a separate inner plastic shell that increases both shock protection and functionality. (See below.) The MC includes an elastic band to hold the cover closed; the AC relies exclusively on the weak magnetic closure to keep the cover closed. The AC is adequate in this regard but the MC is a sure thing. Advantage: MC

    () Functionality. Again, different designs and different choices. Both covers provide for “sleep mode” when closed. The elastic band on the MC makes opening the cover more involved but it also provides a more secure closure and less of a chance that the cover can open when packed in a bag. Advantage: Depends on what’s important to you.

    The AC provides covers over the KFHD’s speakers, and easy to feel button/rocker covers for power and volume. The MC’s internal plastic shell provides only cutouts. Advantage: AC. For those who have trouble locating the external buttons, it’s a BIG advantage for the AC.

    The MC’s internal shell rotates from portrait to landscape and the case design provides a more stable stand with the cover forming a platform for the tablet in either postion. The AC uses the cover as an inverted V to act as a stand in landscape mode only. Although the AC’s cover can also be used to prop up the tablet in portrait mode, the 90 degree angle cannot be adjusted in that configuration, making it useless for reading. Advantage: MC

    The placement of the MC in the inner shell dictates that the KFHD can only be charged with the cover open. Otherwise, the charge port (and HDMI port) are covered by the case’s spine. Marware touts this as an advantage in terms of protecting the ports from dust and damage. YMMV. It’s clear that it’s not an advantage for charging since the screen is unprotected. The AC has a cutout for the charge and hdmi ports. Significantly more convenient. Advantage AC.

    Color and Cover Quality. This is a very subjective issue. My MC is in charcoal (gray really) and my AC is in saddle brown. The MC is relatively smooth “leather.” (Not high quality but not bad.) The AC is a pebble grain “leather.” I prefer the color and texture of the AC. It feels better in the hand and the thinner case just looks better to me. YMMV. For my part, Advantage: AC

    Cost: The prices of the two covers are almost identical (about $45). Less expensive covers are available from Marware and much less expensive covers are (or will be) available from other sources. I’ve had good luck with Marware durability in the past and the design of the MC is more or less the same as others I’ve had. The AC may seem overpriced to some. Personally, I think the features and design are worth paying for. I can’t speak for durability but I’m optimistic about the AC. It’s a classy looking case (imo) and will likely stay that way.

    Overall: I intend to keep the AC and return the MC. Less bulk and weight, better features, convenience, and ease of daily use are the deciding factors for me. If protection in rough environments, handling by a youngster, and a stable stand (especially in portrait orientation)were critical factors for me, I’d probably keep the MC. But if that were case, I’d probably wait for an Otterbox version for the KFHD.

    Disappointing, especially for the price, September 20, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I’ll briefly summarize the things that work for this case to reinforce what has been stated already. That it is from Amazon itself and designed for the Kindle. The fit is snug, it is light, has a much better texture and feel than is conveyed in the pictures. The awesome sound from the speakers is unobstructed and the magnetic lift-to-wake lid is a nice touch, with convenient case cover buttons for the volume and power buttons.

    However one of the key uses of the fire for me is to watch shows or videos while multi-tasking in the kitchen. So the fully adjustable stand position at first appeared as a positive. Then the flaw appeared,on smooth surfaces such as a granite counter or wood table the lid slips out from the back causing the kindle to fall flat on its back. This has happened repeatedly, and even when the lid is against another object, then the front will slide out. For how much this case cost (a quarter of the device price) this is unacceptable. If I can’t figure this out without some tacky workaround like taping something on, this will likely go back. I will be trying out some other cases to see how they work.

    Well built, sturdy case for Kindle Fire HD, September 14, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I picked up this case along with the 7″ Kindle Fire HD based on the description of the product and the fact that it is produced directly by Amazon, opposed to the 3rd party options like Marware that were the only options back when the original Kindle Fire was released. So far on day 1, i’m extremely pleased and happy with the construction and quality of the case.

    The main body of the case is a hard plastic shell, with speaker grills cut out for the speakers on the Fire HD, and plastic buttons for power and volume. The plastic is somewhat flexible and can bend a little bit, but looks strong enough that it wouldn’t easily snap or crack if it dropped. The Fire itself slips right in and is held in pretty well; I can turn the case upside down without worrying that the Fire would fall out. The flap for the cover is lined with a soft cloth to protect the screen, and also looks like material that won’t fray anytime soon. Magnets look like they’re on the corners of the device to keep the cover in place, and are strong enough that the flap won’t open on it’s own. There’s a small rubber tab on the end that makes it easy to open as well, and allows the HDMI and USB ports to be exposed so that it can be plugged in while charging or connected to a bigger display. Smart design. The outside cover feels like a tough leather; it feels nice and it too doesn’t look like it would scuff easily.

    The feature that wakes the Fire upon opening the flap or puts it to sleep when closed works flawlessly. The buttons on the case actually make it easier to press the power button, which is a common complaint on the Fire HD since the power button is flush. But with the auto wake and sleep on the case, it probably won’t be as big of a deal. The case “stands” by just making a tent shape, opposed to being propped up the way other cases are designed. This actually works pretty well, as the rubber on the case edge keeps it sturdy and stable, and lets you adjust angles without a problem opposed to pre-defined angles or notches in other cases.

    I’m extremely happy with the case, but the only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is the price. Paying almost 1/4 of the price of the Fire HD itself for a case is pretty steep, despite how nice the case actually is.
