I have the black one and I like it very much. The pebbling may be machine made but it makes it less likely to show fingerprints and easier to hold. The KPW is easier to hold with the cover too.
The thing I like best about it is how the light comes on as soon as I open it. My Kindle is without Special Offers. It lights up as soon as I open the cover--no swipping needed. At night though, it is so convenient to just open the Kindle in the dark and I have a lighted book.
Oh, it smells like leather but I have to put my nose against it to smell anything.
