    Like an Extra Skin

    Posted .

    When I first purchased this item, I had a bit of trouble with the origami concept, but once I had figured it out, there was no hassle. The case is durable, and secures my Kindle without fear of dropping it. From my experience, it takes substantial force to knock the Kindle out of its case, as I don't recall mine ever dropping out, despite the case having fallen at some creative angles. One neat feature is that when you open the case, your Kindle automatically wakes from sleep (unless you've shut it down), and automatically goes to back to sleep once you've secured the cover. The big selling point for me, however, was that this case acted essentially as another skin. It's like a hard shell but easy to retrieve from the case if you open it and deliberately pull the Kindle out. There are also volume and power controls built into the back of the case. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    This case exceeded any expectations I had. It stays on magnetically, provides easy access to all necessary buttons on the sides and the charging port, without having to remove the case. It folds to support your Kindle in either portrait or landscape mode, and as soon as you close the cover, it puts your kindle to sleep, so no need to switch it off each time - just close the cover. It's left me wanting nothing more from a case. This one is perfect to me!

    Overall this is a very good case/protection solution for the HDX. It is relatively lightweight and clings onto the kindle magnetically. The cover/foldable stand is tough enough to protect the screen and automatically turns the device on when it's opened. The back is a tough plastic that has the Amazon logo. All of the buttons and ports are still accessible. I bought this case when I bought the HDX and put it right into this case. If you take it out you will notice how very light and thin the HDX actually is by itself. Attaching this case does not make the device heavy but you will notice some added bulk relative to the very light device. Obviously any case/cover will do this, however it's a great trade-off as this case offers excellent protection and functionality.

    Works great. Able to set it up for a variety of uses. The stand is firm and feels solid. The case looks great and is better than some of the cheaper ones on the market. Would recommend without reservation.

    This cover protects the unit pretty well but would be better with a magnet clasp of some sort to keep it closed when used as a cover and in place when used as a stand. They should take a note from the design of the Apple origami cover for their wireless keyboard which is excellent in this regard.

    Almost the best part about buying my new HDX was that I also bought this case for it. It holds the HDX securely... it "folds" just right when and how you want it to... it protects the HDX... and it puts my HDX to sleep whenever it closes. GREAT product

    It's the stand part that is best

    It's a cover for a Kindle, which is a pretty simple thing, right. I've had covers for other tablets, and I really like this one by comparison. The origami cover makes it a versatile stand, making reading or watching movies at a desk or table, or on a plane, much easier. Integration of the buttons (volume and power) is seamless - I had worried that they would be spotty or difficult to press. The charging port is perfectly accessible, and as you'd expect, closing the cover turns off the display. Aside from becoming slimmer, and a slight tilt when standing, it's hard to imagine a better cover.

    Great Kindle Fire Case

    I've purchased three Kindle Fire HDX's for members of my family and with each I purchased this same case (different colors obviously). The case is great. It fits the Kindle Fire HDX perfectly. It is magnetic so it closes securely. Being Origami allows it to be folded in many different ways to suit each person's needs. Since it's made precisely for the Kindle Fire, it is recognized by the Kindle Fire for automatic power on and off (out of sleep mode). It offers protection and security for a very good price. If you buy the Kindle Fire, get this case.

    Light, tough & protective, but not cheap.

    I've learned from previous case purchases that it's no use to go cheap or generic if they don't fit very well. For the best protection, it's best to get the case specifically fitted to that particular device, it's cheaper than repairing damage. My cats will keep walking on my Fire when I set it down on a side table, but with the cover closed over the screen it's come out intact so far! The fold & stand feature is a little tricky to learn but does support the screen in a good position for reading horizontally (landscape perspective). It's OK for vertical (portrait perspective) but is less stable because it's a narrow surface.

    Functional but not extraordinary

    This is a quite functional case for the Kindle Fire HDX. It folds as advertised and does keep the screen at a very good position for use. I think the biggest thing about it is that it does seem heavier than cases I have had in the past for other tablets/readers. It seems well constructed and I have had no issues with wear or failure (I was worried about where the plastic folds) yet. A good choice if you are not into fashion/political/self-expression statements. Those of us who just need a solid case to avoid damage? It will suit you just fine. It does seem a bit pricey for what it is, however, But, that seems to be true for any of the cases available.

    Surprisingly Useful Cover

    Posted .

    My old Kindle Fire disappeared, and I had to get a new one, along with a new cover. I mostly use the Kindle for reading, so I was looking for something that was lightweight, easy to hold, had auto turn on/shut off when cover was opened or closed, and could double as a stand, if need be. Originally didn't want the Origami, since it was expensive and plastic, but after trying out a number of other covers, determined that it actually fulfilled my needs better than the rest. Only downside (other than the expensive and plastic part) is that the magnets that hold the folded edges together when setting up the stand are finicky, and don't always hold.

    Good protection

    The Amazon origami case is a flexible protector case. The Fire fits snugly into the case and is held in place with internal magnets. The cover is also kept closed with magnets. Closing the cover puts the Fire into stand-by mode. The outside surface is a plastic material and so far has resisted scuffs, and wipes clean easily. The inside of the cover is a soft velour like material that helps to protect the screen surface. The case does not add a lot of bulk to the Fire such that it fits easily into a moderately sized purse. (That;s probably not the most useful comment for a lot of you, sorry,) It would be a better value at about $10-15 less.

    The right cover for Kinde Fire HDX

    So far this appears to be the best all around cover for the Kindle Fire HDX. The price was also a positive compared to other HDX covers. What I like is that it fits like a glove and keeps the tablet feeling small and light. The fact that the device starts up and shuts down as it is opened or closed is also a very cool feature. The magnetic attachment has so far been reliable and the stand feature is stable. I am really pleased with this purchase.

    You're going to buy or you bought a Kindle Fire...now you have to protect it. It wouldn't of mattered how this cover folded up. All you need is something that keeps the Kindle firmly in place and something that can be propped up to make watching videos/movies more enjoyable - this does both. Is it worth $50 - probably not but its the only cover made for a Kindle I felt most confident about and that's that.

    The best ever case for a Kindle

    This case is so sturdy and easy to use. I have tried other cases for the Kindle and this one is by far the best available. The magnets hold it in place however you position it. My Stylus is also held in place when not in use by the magnets. I love this case so much that I bought another one for my wife.

    I was leary of getting this cover as the first BB tech who showed it to me didn't know how to handle, etc. I went home & looked on Amazon for covers and saw this along with a few others. Amazon showed this cover being used upright which no one had been able to show me how to do that. I went back to a different BB (one that had the purple one) and I took my Kindle Fire HDX in with me to try it. I played with it several ways with my Kindle in the cover. Love the hard cover on this.

    I like the fact that the magnetic holder works well. But when your trying to read a book and place the holder in a certain position it's doesn't always stay. More than likely it falls. So if you plan on book reading. Plan on holding it in your hand. Which isn't all that awesome for the price you pay.

    Foolproof, easy case for Kindle Fire HDX

    Posted .

    I bought a Kindle Fire HDX and needed a protective cover for it. I researched online and learned about this origami cover. It's very unique in its design - it contains magnets that connect when the back of the cover is folded to completely support the Kindle for upright viewing, which is great. Works exactly as described. Only knock on it is the price - about a third of the cost of the Kindle. But it does work well - also automatically turns the Kindle off when you close the cover so your battery doesn't wear down.
