My light brown case from "googleproduct" arrived today, it took about 15 days from Hong Kong. The color is exactly as pictured. I scraped a little out of the bottom inner corner with the edge of a scissors, and snapped it in. It works perfectly, and the feel of it, when folded back, is much nicer to hold. I prefer the fabric used on this case to the fabric of the Kindle case, in other words.

My only complaint is, it doesn't want to lie completely flat, as the kindle case does. It's still close enough that it doesn't "wake" but it is an irritant. Maybe that's where the extra weight of the kindle cover comes into play.

One of mine was the same way. It's not the weight of the lid, because my other ones lie perfectly flat. It's the hinge...that leather/fabric strip. It's not long enough (or wide enough, depending on how you look at it) to allow the lid to drop all the way down.

I stretched mine out and now it lies flat. I dampened the inside of the strip and then closed the cover with a cord wedged between the hinge and the molded piece. I laid it face down (to keep it shut) and then left it for 2 days.

However, that's because my problem was more severe. It wouldn't even come close to shutting. Yours will probably stretch out on its own, just from normal use. Keeping it face down when not reading, will hasten the process.

No such luck apparently. Tracking hasn't updated in 3 weeks now and it still says that it's on its way to Germany. But that happens when you order from China and pay nothing for the shipping, so I won't get mad about it

I was also just gonna post that I saw the model with the magnetic closure on ebay for about 12€ with shipping from Germany the other day, but the ones I can find at the moment are all priced at 30€. Maybe the first batch proved to be popular

Fauxpas, it may be stuck at customs. I sent something from the US to Germany almost three weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived. It was a large padded envelope with empty boxes, two powercords and a headset inside. I am now convinced customs is up to no good

Weird, the magnetic one still shows $15 on ebay.com. Maybe try. To order it from there?

Nice that you like it. I got the same cover, but from a seller here in the US. Mine did not come with stylus or screen protector though. Not sure if I even want a screen protector, I like the rough surface of my PW. Stylus would be nice sometimes when looking up words - my fingers sometimes miss the word and go to wrong line.

Well I just recieved the light brown paperwhite knockoff case from 'googleproducts' on ebay. I must say the quality is excellent for the price. I Pared down one of the corners with a knife as recommended and it pops out pretty easily. It's perfect, don't waste your money on the official version. You can buy the same fake case direct from alibaba.com there are so many sellers offering them there but i didn't go 'factory direct' because you never know how long its going to take to arrive and at least through ebay its more secure (personal opinion) although at less than $10 a piece there's little to worry about. The kindle sleeps when you close this case but I would like to add a magnet to mine (am a diy type) saw an interesting post here where this guy added his own magnet clasp to a case for the ipad Anyone tried this on a kindle?

Received my Lt Blue today, and must say, it is smaller and less weight than the Amazon Cover and I love it. Colorwise, it is more a light turquoise than a lt blue, and matches my Decalgirl Moon Fairy perfectly. Took about 12 days to get here.

Hi Vmurph, would you please paste a photo of how you modified your case to allow easy kindle separation? I really wish to do the same because it is an ingenious idea but don't know where to start. I hope that by seeing what the experts have done, I can do the same without breaking my case. Thanks

According to the seller you will get "full refund if product isn't received in 39 days".

^ Koko, I am just trying to figure out the Geman post/customs issue that is holding up my mailing as well as fauxpas' case, if these two issues are even related.
I got my cases in the US in the beginning of December and am very happy with them
