Minisuit clips not centered?

I recently bought one of the Minisuit covers. My only complaint is that the clips that grip the sides of the Kindle seem to be slightly offset to the left, which means that the Kindle isn't quite centered from left to right in the case. Has anyone else with this cover noticed this?

I think that's intentional -- it makes it less likely that you will accidentally bump the next page button on the right side.

I wish they had done something similar on the bottom (made the case maybe half an inch longer). Having the Kindle inset slightly gives it more protection if the case is dropped and hits on the edge.

I'm happy with it. There are just a few small things I'd like to see improved, but it's a lot better than the useless thing Amazon shipped with the Kindle.

Berni,
How were you able to remove the red dye from your Kindle? The same thing happened to mine and I've been too scared to try to remove it!

not sure about the red, but the wife had one of those Mr. Clean magic erasers around the house and that took off the black from mine.

I tried an ink eraser, which didn't work, but then I used some 3M keyboard cleaner, and that did work. The Magic Eraser is a good idea as well.

Meantime, has anyone heard anything from Tuff-Luv? I pre-ordered a cover a couple of weeks ago, and have gotten no response. The website now says they are in stock, but I've emailed them several times with no results.

Received my Tuff-luv leather case!

Now this is a well designed case. The leather is smooth and feels good; the case is secured by two bottom holders and the original Kindle plastic thingie in the back; you can easily reach the power and whispernet buttons; it angles beautifully, so you can stand it up; and it's lighter and more compact than both the original case and the M-Edge. It's available here:

http://www.amazon.com/Tuff-Luv-Execu...4078759&sr=8-4

I would buy it through Amazon- the company (I-Unique) tends to be very uncommunicative, and I almost ended up with 2 of the.

Now, if it only came in colors.........

Did anyone tried this yet? I bought the silicone case from Vizu a couple months back but I want to get something more classy for my dad. The case looks great but I don't know whether to choose from this or the m-edge one. The M-edge seems a lot more pricier, any thoughts?
I like this one it's nice and plain and it looks like a good fit, plus you can't go wrong with black.

I haven't gotten anything on my Kindle yet, but I find when I smear something like sharpie ink (which I did on my dining room table) that a little regular white toothpaste and a some scrubbing with a finger will take it right off.
