The only issue I have with the OEM cover is that it doesn't protect the raised buttons.

Can someone verify that this M-edge does not press against the raised buttons. I exchanged a PRS-700 already due to a button that was pushed in.
I fixed the new one by adding rubber buttons (with adhesive backing) along the outer edge of the cover. It works beautifully.

The problem I have is that while shipping is free on the cover due to the price, the light isn't available and thus when it is, I'd have to pay shipping on it. That's not fair.

Oh I most defiantly will buy it. and I most defiantly review it for you guys with lots of pic.

though I'm certain my GF will kill me if I buy it, so I have to wait for her to get home. I will probably have it next Friday or the week after.

they look good, I've got to decide on the color, right now I'm torn between red, and grey/black

I bought the grey/black, therefore, you must buy the red!

Yippee! I love the Sapphire blue cover and I've got a $25 Amazon gift certificate staring at me as I type! Maybe it'll be my Mother's Day present to myself!!

Actually it is! I couldn't resist! I hope to give you lots of good feedback on it when it arrives!

Those jackets/cover look nice but unfortunately the Sony versions don't seem to take advantage of Sony's ingenious way of clipping the cover into the reader. I Don't like seeing two to four elastic bands strapping the corner of the PRS which looks very inelegant, especially when there are two built-in holes on the PRS specifically to clip in the cover.

C'mon M-Edge. You can do MUCH better than that!

I like the one that came with the 700 too, especially because it has such an ingenious way to clip into the reader giving the reader a really good book-like feel. The other covers that clip into the corners are very "blah" for me.

I actually prefer the corners of the m-edge. I don't like when I open the reader, there is an Inch of crappy plastic leather right where my hand holds it, and digs into my hand

Unfortunately, Sony's "ingenious" clip is also extremely fragile & breakable, and I have *TWO* totally useless Sony covers because they "idiotically" broke. Without trauma or droppage. Just broke. And Sony offers no replacement parts.

I'd much rather have nice, sturdy leather corner strips. (Only one has a bit of elastic, to allow you to insert or remove the reader). Just my opinion. Been burnt twice, trying something different this time.
