I had to wait all week to get my Kindle Fire case as it was delivered to my job and I was not in the office the entire week. After getting a $10 refund because of the price reduction and seeing all the bad reviews, I’d been searching all over to find a replacement case. Well I just got the Marware case, put it on and am VERY pleased. No, It doesn’t feel cheap–it feels like it’s made of the same materials as the back of the Kindle Fire.
It doesn’t add any appreciable weight to the Fire (thank goodness!) and it looks and feels great. The Fire is a hefty device and I really appreciate that the case is so lightweight. For those that are looking for a stand made for your lap (cause I don’t think this one is), you probably need to look at some of the pillow stands or the PadPivot lap stand.
The Fire fits snugly into the case and it doesn’t feel like it will fall out. Another thing that I like about the case is that the skin I’m purchasing will be visible. Many cases that I looked at either have a frame around the black part of the Fire’s screen or cover it up in another way. This case will let me add a little personalization to my device.
I have had a Kindle since the 1st version and currently use an Android phone, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle 2, Kindle Touch and iPad. All of them except the Kindle Touch have cases and this case stacks up to any of them. Don’t be afraid of the bad reviews–this case is FINE!
I will update this review if wear and tear on the case changes my opinion.
