New slim paperwhite case on Ebay

Hope this has not been mentioned beore, but last year's slim PW case thread was a bit long.
For those of you looking for a new PW case...

I just ordered this case in pink for $8 on Ebay - don't ask me why- I already have one case too many.....

It looks better than the googleproducts case, because the leather grain is similar to the original case, but the closure sticks out a bit and may thus be in the way.

EDIT: OMG, somebody stop me!!
I just bought this case as well. They have maps on the cover, and are just too darn cheap.

One more - this one is the BEST in terms of color selection!! The colors are to die for... It's more expensive, but seems to be awesome quality and the inside is black!! I am now trying to cancel my first order - I really have a problem

I just bit the bullet on this one! Looks great and it's a great price. I ordered it in purple; I really hope it's the eggplant color shown in the pictures and not a royal purple. I never had a case before (only a sleeve for putting it in my purse) so we'll see if I like reading in a case or not!

I was this close to ordering a TPU cover for my PW instead of the cover, but I might just wait to see how you guys like this one. I'll get a new one anyway, as my previous case's 'lip' that holds the Kindle chipped in 2 corners.

xendula STOP buying any more cases for your Kindle right now, or else!!

Does that work for you?

Of course, now that you've bought them, you'll need to tell us what you think of them when you get them so we can avoid following suit and ending up with numerous cases that we didn't really need in the first place.....

At least my dislike of branding is coming handy for once and saving me some money I already have 3 (unbranded) covers for the PW anyway, I don't think I need anymore.

And Xendula: stop buying covers!!!!!

These covers look amazing - I wouldn't know which to order! I'm hoping that they will make the same range for the Kobo Aura though.

I checked, and there a some nice cases for the Glo, but I haven't seen any great ones for the Aura or Aura HD - there are some slim ones in nice colors, but I am not too crazy about the metal closure in the ones here.

so I ended up ordering :

orange slim that looks exactly like the real one

lime slim one, and I ordered the purple too

and purple one from your last link

I'll keep the nicest purple and pass on the other one. I'll have only 2 PW but 3 covers. Bad bad aceflor. But bad bad bad xendula too

My sister has one of these on her Aura HD. It is OK but like you, I would prefer without the (visible) metal closure.

The one with the magnetic tab is crappy, IMHO. With regard to cases, I like the latest Sony design the best: integrated into the back of the e-reader, with a magnet in the front of the reader.

The ones with the maps look nice Maybe i'll just get one for kicks. They look as if they are the same as the first version of the GoogleProduct case (the non-magnetic one), with a different print on it.

The last one has a tab again; so that's out. Anything with a tab, clasp, or metal part (such as the Kindle original case) already starts at a disadvantage, especially if the case itself has a part that sticks out.

IF I get a slim cover with a magnetic tab, then it'll be the one posted above, the one that's like a 1:1 copy of the original. It has a metal part, but at least nothing on the case itself sticks out.
