    It’s much better than most reviews make it out to be, but not perfect, November 24, 2011

    First of all, this cover is not nearly as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be. It doesn’t feel like “cheap” plastic, nor does it feel like it’s going to immediately disintegrate into a pile of rubbish. So let’s start having a look at it in detail:

    1) The back. Mine is very thin leather, formed around what appears to be a rubber-like shell. In my opinion, the leather on the back looks pretty good. It’s tightly form-fitting, and form-fitted and bonded to the shell, so I can see where some casual users might mistake it for plastic. It is in my opinion, most definitely leather. Is it “quality” leather? Well, I suppose so, but it’d also have to be extremely thin quality leather.

    2) The shell. The next layer would be what I call the form-fitting shell. It comprises the structure that makes up the back half of the cover. The kindle touch fits very tightly into this shell. It’s certainly not going to fall out of there. In fact, it might not be all that easy to remove the kindle, it’s so tightly snapped in. The shell tends to increase the bulk of the kindle a bit, which I actually like. It feels like it’ll give me some shock/drop protection. Contrary to some other reviewers, I don’t think it makes the kindle overly bulky. I think it gives a very thin device some much needed weight and substance.

    3) The light. It’s on a snap up arm on the top. There’s no adjustment to it, it’s either fully up or it’s fully down. It gives off plenty of light to read my kindle in the dark. The light is at a fixed angle. It’s slightly brighter at the top of the kindle than the bottom (it does after all, have to obey the laws of physics). The light is of course powered by the kindle’s battery. That’s your reason for buying this case and not some other case.

    4) The front cover. It’s made of the same thin leather as the back, with some hard material sandwiched inside, and then a felt-like inner layer. The front cover is extremely thin. It’s not flimsy as other reviewers have claimed; it’s actually quite stiff. However it’s thin enough that it feels like you could snap or crease it if mishandled.

    Pros:

    1) The cover looks good, fits good, and is compact. It’s just the right size, and it’s just the right weight. It feels like the cover is designed for the kindle. It doesn’t feel like a sloppy poorly fitting aftermarket case. Your kindle and the case become one.

    2) The light illuminates well, it lights up the whole surface of my kindle, making it easy to read.

    3) It offers adequate protection. The rubber shell will protect from drops and shocks. The front cover, provided it stays closed, will protect the screen.

    Cons:

    1) The light distracts me while I’m reading, particularly if I read while laying on my back in bed. I wish it had more of a glare shield. I might try fabricating something from a piece of black electrical tape, just to see what happens.

    2) The light feels fragile. It articulates up and down, but does not articulate front to back. If you ever whacked it a good one front to back, you’d probably bust it off, at which point you’d have a non-lighted kindle cover.

    3) The front cover has no means to stay closed. I wish it had magnets to give it a little extra staying power. My K2 cover had nothing to keep it closed either, so I don’t feel slighted, but you’d think on the 4th generation someone would be able to figure out a way to stick some magnets in there.

    4) The front cover is both stiff and thin. It feels like if I mishandled it that I could easily damage it. For example, tossing it into a briefcase or a bag and letting the cover get caught in just the wrong way could leave me with a big ugly crease. This wouldn’t be so much a problem if there would have been something to keep it closed.

    In short, I’m both impressed and disappointed in the quality. Impressed because it turned out to be much better than the reviews led me to believe. Disappointed because it’s a very pricey case and I’d like the light and the front cover to be a little more hefty in design. I also really wish the light had a better glare shield. I deducted one star due to the perceived lack of durability and one star due to the lack of value for such a high price.

    Kindle Touch Lighted Leather Cover, Saddle TanGiven previous reviews, I wasn’t sure I was going to be happy with this product – but I couldn’t be more pleased! The case arrived today. The fit is … perfect. The unit is snug – without the distraction of elastic or exterior “holders”. The light works brilliantly! It is comfortably bright, and covers the whole page. Better yet, it is always there and recharges with the Kindle. The leather is very smooth, over a rubberized/plastic gray case that matches the color of the Kindle. The stitching is FLAWLESS. The cover sits flush to the unit and is lined with a dark grey felt that also matches the color of the Kindle. It is so lightweight, I was amazed (probably because my K2 + case is considerably heavier!)

    What this case is not, is a beautifully padded, high end, pebbled leather cover – although it does appear to be good quality smooth leather. Nor does it have a tab to keep the case closed (although I never secured the tab on my last cover, so that obviously is not a priority for me!) Further, given the snug fit, I don’t doubt that getting the Kindle OUT of the case would be very difficult. If you like to change covers, and need to secure the cover as closed, you will not likely be happy with this product. However, for me, this cover meets my needs better than any other I’ve found so far.

    I preordered my Kindle Touch and Lighted cover on September 28th. Got my kindle day early but case shipment has been a mess. First there was no date for shipping. Then I got an estimate of December 22nd and in about 3 hours got a follow email that my case was to be delivered today.
    Case showed up an hour ago and as soon as it came in I attached my KT to it. I had original K3G with lighted cover before this one and its definitely a better design then earlier version. Kindle Touch weighs 7.3 ounces and Cover 5.4 ounces so its not light weight.

    This case is a TPU style case which has hard plastic back. Leather is not of high quality like the premium brands that exist. I actually like the back design compared to the previous model as kindle is attached inside it and not connected via 2 clips on the side. Light position is much improved and provides more even light. Also its easier to operate then previous model. Price is still high for what it offers but not much u can do about it.

    So overall I do like the case, Don’t like the price and find this model much better than earlier one.

    one thing to note is they no longer have a little strap that keeps the case closed. Right now its fine but not sure what is going to happen once i start folding the front cover back. It might become loose and start flapping too much. It would have been nice to have either a magnet or a strap to hold it closed
