Blade X1 (Premium Protective Hardback)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After a little bit of research on which affordable case was actually worth the money for my new Kindle Paperwhite (2013), I landed on the Fintie Blade X1 (Premium Protective Hardback) and I could not be happier thus far.
The main competitor was the OMOTON Kindle Paperwhite Cover coming in at the exact same price when I was shopping. The reason I chose this case in particular was the color options available. I was really after a light/soft pink color and Fintie had this exactly. A few other factors to consider (and probably more important than the color) was that it is very small, nearly the size of the Kindle itself, that it was protected on all four corners on the back, and that the flap could easily flip around behind the kindle for ease of use. I also am happy that unlike the OMOTON this specific Fintie option did not have any logo inside the case, just a small one on the exterior corner.
Cons: There is a little sag from the cover flap when held directly...
Edit July 1, 2014: I have been having an odd problem with my Kindle going to sleep while reading. I've traced the problem to this cover. When the cover is folded around flat to the back of the Kindle it intermittently puts the Kindle to sleep. Sometimes I can read 20 minutes while sometimes it goes to sleep every two pages. It was maddening at first until I figured out that it was the cover. Not folding the cover a full 180 (leaving it open like a book) stops the problem completely as does using the Kindle without the cover.
Edit July 10, 2014: I found that I could easily put my Kindle to sleep by sliding the cover back and forth when in the folded back, fully open position. Inside the cover is a sheet of steel and the lower corner has a highly magnetized stripe. I built a degausser and removed about half the magnetism and the cover now works properly. The Kindle goes to sleep when you close the cover and it does NOT go to sleep when the cover is open...
Cover separated revealing magnets in less than 2 days. I by no means have abused this case and on maybe the 12th time opening it in 2 days the entire right hand side that contains the power management magnets completely separated.
