Ha, I just ordered the same case. It was previously discussed in another thread here and one person had already gotten theirs and liked it.

I got that case a couple of months ago and like it better than the Indigo book cover case I had originally. It even has cutouts for the light sensor and the power light and is less than half the price to boot. I was so annoyed with my original cover not showing the indicator light, I hacked out part of the frame so I could see it. The only part I don't really like about the Skindigital cover is the crease in the cover for standing the thing up in landscape mode. I've yet to need to use it that way.

I purchased this case on ebay with one of the screen protectors. I absolutely love this case. And at less than half the cost of the branded kobo cases what's not to love?! Also, I have found the screen protector to be an asset. Not only does it obviously protect the screen but I have found that it also reduces screen glare and has a much smoother feel (so sweaty fingers no longer stick when swiping the screen).

I would recommend this case to anyone over the Kobo branded one.

When this cover first showed up here, the black one sold out quickly (I think I got the last one in stock at the time). I'm guessing it's become very popular and is flying off the shelves quickly since it's nicer and much better value than the "official" one.

Finally received mine. It took over a month. Nice case. However, if you are in a hurry, maybe order from somewhere other than hong kong!

Perhaps the demand is no so huge they can't keep them in stock. Mine came in a week or so. In fact, most stuff I've ordered from Hong Kong has been extremely inexpensive and fast, usually free, shipping.

I just had them resend one for my wife's vox. It's been over a month, but with the easter long weekend I gave it some extra time. Customer service seems good they reply to messages quickly and are shipping another one out Monday for me. Glad to hear it's a good cover, at half the price is worth the wait.

Case/Stand in the UK

If your living in the UK you might want one of these, easily the best, even better than the official one in my opinion.

Those look really nice. I'm sad now that we're not in the UK. I like that the kickstand is available even in portrait orientation. I don't like reading in landscape mode, I find the margins to be too large on the Vox. Since my case only has the kickstand for landscape I don't get much use out of that feature.

I may have to look into this and see if these are also available from some place that ships to Canada. My case is holding up well but I think it may be worth it (providing the cost isn't too high) to invest in one with a portrait kickstand which I may get much more use from.

Don't have one for the Vox(my kids have the Kobo Vox hard covers for added protection), but I have a Tuff-Luv case for my Acer A100, and it's great.
