Nice cover and material, but the stand is a bit flimsy. It 'locks' into 3 indentation on the front cover and the back cover angles to support and acts as the stand. But when you go too far out, the kindle is too heavy and the back doesn't support it too well. Stick to the first 2 indentations and it's fine.
I GOT THIS CASE FOR MY DAUGHTER CUZ SHE MENTIONED SHE WANTED ONE, IT WAS SO NICE AND EXACTLY WHAT SHE WANTED, IT WAS A BIG SURPRISE IT CAME WITH A SCREEN PROTECTOR AND STYLUS...VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE :)
For the price, you get a cover that is cleverly designed and will securely hold your Kindle Fire, and that is just about it. I found it to be flimsy and somewhat bulky. The angles you see in the picture are the only angles truly supported. You will not get it steeper or shallower.
I have two Kindle Fires and two different cases, but this holder with the ability to twist and hold the unit up for easier use surpasses both of the other cases. The order came with a stylus which helps eliminate my fat finger problem. If you are looking for a Kindle Fire holder, this is one to seriously consider purchasing. I do not think you will be disappointed in the least. The only thing that would be better is a choice of colors, but the standard black does work just fine.
I suppose I expected more from this product, but considering the price paid, I honestly can't complain. The case will hold up your kindle fire in an horizontal position in all three of the inclines, but placed in a vertical grade it only works well on one of them. My overall satisfaction was most affected by the bulk that this case creates, but I found the ability to separate the the stand portion and a the rotating kindle case, very useful in mitigating some of the bulk issues.
The only reason I'm giving this a 4 for performance is because the swivel is pretty much a button, and rotates with gravity (i.e. doesn't stay put very well if not placed against the back of the cover indentations)
- Can stand the Kindle in portrait or landscape positions
- The Kindle flops over when in portrait mode when set to the steepest viewing angle
- There's no place to store the included stylus in the case
- Would be nicer if it used a magnetic fastener rather than an elastic strap
Haven't tried to mount the screen protector
DrHotDeal black Kindle Fire leather look cover and

Mfg Part @ 678PUIB black leather look cover for Kindle Fire and protective cover works well as protection and also allows Kindle to swivel 360 degrees inside case. Case makes stand for Kindle work station either vertical or horizontal. Clear screen cover was a welcomed bonus.
This is a very inexpensive cover and that's what you get. No instructions and it is not clear just how to set the case for angle viewing. Even when set in place, it is not really sturdy or secure. It does work as a protective cover. You get what you pay for.
I'm finding it difficult to get this sleeve to sit up both vertically and horizontally. The groove in which the pad needs to fit to stay upright is not sufficiently ridged and the folding flap on the back which needs to hold the Kindle up in a slanted position keeps collapsing. I guess its fair value for the money paid. Keeps the Kindle safe and damage proof.
This case is designed specifically for the new Kindle Fire taking into consideration of all ports and buttons from the Kindle Fire. The case was designed to allow 360 degree rotation of the Kindle fire and allows the Kindle stand horizontally or vertically in various viewing angle. Made of high quality artificial leather and designed with supporting stand. The new design of the Kindle Fire was also carefully studied to ensure this case securely holds the Kindle Fire without the risk of it slipping out accidentally. Our case was designed to ensure we do not add too much bulk. We use high quality but light weight material that fits tightly, providing great protection without adding too much bulk or weight. Overall this case is designed to be a practical and graceful protector of your Kindle Fire investment. Also include Japanese imported PET screen guard to provide an all around protective solution.
