  1. I just received my first Kindle, and spent a couple of days looking online at different cases/covers. This appeared to be the best one on the market, for several reasons. The Kindle slips into the case from left to right, so that when the cover is closed, it is impossible for it to slip out. It has a very soft velvet lining and stiff construction between the leather and the velvet. All of the buttons, including the on/off switch, plug in for headphones and charging port are exposed. The only area not exposed is the speakers in the back. I’m not a fan of listening to books on tape, so this is not an issue for me. It appears to be very well made and looks exactly like the pictures. I’m very happy to have found this case, because the typical ones you see with elastic at the corners just didn’t look like they would protect the Kindle as well. Also, the delivery was incredibly fast. I received it four days after the order was placed – and the estimate was five to seven days. I would highly recommend this cover to protect your Kindle.

    I started out with the Tuff-Luv (it comes with either a side or top joint). The TuffLuv is really nice, but I finally settled on the MaxGuard Plus. I was looking for the following:

    1) I wanted a bit more protection than simply the outer cover. Both the TuffLuv and Maxguard Plus have inner “sleeves” into which the kindle slips, with cutouts for screen, keyboard, buttons, and ports. Both are very secure.

    2) I wanted a cover flexible enough to fold the front cover behind for one-handed reading, and I was able to detrmine that both of these covers met this criterion.

    3) I wanted a fast, simple way to secure the case in closed position. The TuffLuv has a magnetic clasp which is not too difficult to use, but which due to an imprecise fit took a little effort to close. The MaxGuard Plus is held securely closed by claspless magnets built into the front cover. The requires no more effort to open and close than a book.

    4) The TuffLuv has a built-in easel for standing your K2 up on a table — nice for those who need it — but I never, ever used this and its presence there had no value for me.

    The TuffLuv is, I think, a higher quality cover. It is more carefully stitched (the MaxGuard Plus stitching is generally straight but not very orderly) and crafted of softer leather with a wonderful, rich leather smell. I prefer its plain fabric lining to the MaxGuard’s nubbed velour-like lining, which picks up dust, fuzz, and other stuff. And the edge of the on-off-switch is hidden by a slightly misplaced leather joint on the MaxGuard Plus, a silly mistake that could have been avoided with minimal effort.

    With a little extra care in manufacturing, the MaxGuard Plus would be an easy five-stars. Still, it remains the cover of choice for my Kindle 2.

    I purchased this case after I bought my kindle because I wanted to protect it and I liked the idea of having the extra flap so that it felt more like holding a book. I did a bit of research about other cases and decided not to go with any of the ones that had the clips that hold the kindle because I had read too many reviews about the case of the kindle cracking when held in by clips. This case secures the kindle with magnets. Plus the way the kindle is inserted into the sleeve makes it impossible for the kindle to slip out.

    Unfortunately, when I pulled my case out of the package I was struck by an extremely unpleasant “machine” smell. It is very strong and rubs off on my hands when I use the case. I have tried washing the case off but so far nothing has worked. This is extremely disappointing because the product itself is relatively attractive and seems well-made. I will continue to try to figure out a way to remove the smell and I hope it fades with time, but I would not recommend this product. The smell is horrible and prevents me from wanting to use it with my kindle. It’s unfortunate too because without this smell, it would definitely be a five star product.

    UPDATE MARCH 3, 2010:

    The smell has completely faded making this case perfect now. Unfortunately I had to use it for a couple months with the smell before it went away. If you can stand the smell for the first few months then this is almost the perfect case.

    One small thing I’ve noticed after using it for awhile:

    The previous reviewer was correct when he said it was difficult to turn the kindle off with this case on. It’s not amazingly hard but the kindle does shift a bit while reading and sometimes it makes it a bit more difficult to access the button. A small, not particularly annoying thing (for me).

    Now that the smell is gone I am quite happy with this case. I have added an extra star to my review (it was 3 stars originally) because now that the smell is gone it does deserve one more star.

    This item was very well designed and made. I had the first generation of case for K2 from this company and I was excited to learn about this new version. The slid in housing for the kindle is perfect, snug fit. You don’t have to worry about it sliding out easily. The corner magnet is fairly revolutionary. I have not found other K2 cover with this design and this design makes the whole set like a classic book. The leather feels very smooth and the internal padding provides excellent protection for the unit. Overall, I’m very, very pleased with my purchase.

    I have been using this case with my new Kindle for the last few days, and it is a great case. With the slide in from the left style, the Kindle feels very secure in the case. I believe there are a few other cases that look similar to this, but you drop the Kindle in from the top, which to me doesn’t seem as secure. The material looks and feels nice, good stiffness to the cover. I also like the hidden magnetic closures, cover closes like a book and is very slim that way. One reviewer commented that the speakers on the Kindle are covered. I have been listening to an audiobook on the Kindle and for me the sound quality was fine. I agree with another reviewer that the cover had a very strong smell when I first took it out of the plastic, but over the last few days its seems to have faded away. I also agree that the cover shipped very quickly, I received it four days after ordering. Overall, great cover for a decent price.

    *** UPDATE 1/14/10 ***

    For those worried about the smell of this cover, I have had this case for a few weeks now and the odor I noticed when I first received the case has definitely faded away. I even forgot that there was an odor issue until I looked up this case again online and reread my review.
