Can you all share the quality of the material used for the Case Crown. I know it's not leather (not a necessity), but is it aesthetically pleasing to a degree?

Anyone have a black one?

My Case Crown arrived yesterday - only took about a week from order to delivery (and I'm in New Zealand!) which is way better than the actual Kobo Touch took when I ordered that from Borders. So CaseCrown get top marks for delivery.
It's a black case, has a textured finish and looks smart and looks a bit like a small day-planner. Quality seems excellent (won't know how well it stands up to wear untill I've had it longer but I can't see any reason why it shouldn't last). The Touch fits perfectly with unrestricted access to everything (even the power switch). The SD slot in the Touch is covered when the case is closed so that it can't get knocked and fall out (I understand the SD card protrudes a little bit but don't have one yet).
The Touch slips in easily but there is enough friction that it won't fall out but it can still easily be removed.
When the case is closed the thickness is about 24mm (just over twice as thick as the Touch without a case, otherwise it's only marginally bigger than the Touch.
In summary - very happy with it and can unreservedly recommend it to anyone who wants a book style cover in preference to a slip cover.

Thanks, I've added it to my cart on Amazon. Was waiting for some feedback before buying. Willing to spend the $18.18 (includes 2 day shipping).

I think it's a fairly attractive case. It seems solidly built and doesn't feel (or smell) like cheap vinyl. The texture is very similar to the texture of my leather M-Edge case. Time will tell how it will hold up, but I think it's built to last.

It looks and feels like leather to me.

I ordered mine from the Senyx Direct store on eBay. They're also available via amazon.

EDIT: I ended up paying ~$22.60 AUD including shipping.

Yes, mine came from CaseCrown, US$21 plus about US$10 airmail shipping to NZ. At least they have reasonable international shipping rates unlike many US companies (like the ones who quote US$70 to ship a Kobo Touch when Borders were doing it for US$8.50!). They also included a free gift (a very small camera case).
From Scion's post it might be a little cheaper on Amazon (I didn't think to look there) but don't know what the shipping costs 'down under' might be like.

I just ordered mine directly from Case Crown. Using the following coupon code, I also got 30% off: AUG30OFF. That took about $6 off the price, making it just over $15. Free US shipping, though I (probably stupidly) paid an extra $5 for priority USPS shipping. I guess I basically used the discount code to get quicker shipping. I'll give my thoughts on the case when it arrives sometime next week.

Thanks for the coupon code! Pays for the shipping to Canada.

Just search on "Kobo touch" to find his listings. He's based in Kanata, Ontario.

[Edited: just ordered one from him; I live in Ontario, but he didn't charge me sales tax. W00t!]
I ordered one of the Roots leather pouches from him, and I'm very happy with it.

My black Case Crown arrived today. Everyone was right about this being a great case. Looks much better than the photos. I'm not a big fan of the textured look in general (prefer smooth), but this is fine because it's a small footprint. Attractive, quality look. Most importantly the power switch isn't encumbered.

I paid $30 for the other cover I was using. Hopefully I can use it for another eReader in the near future. Maybe the upcoming touch Kindle will fit it.
