amazon sleeve vs. m-edge GO

I can't decide which one of them is better, does anyone have experience with them?
How firm are they.
Ps: the Amazon one costs me 30 EUR, the m-edge costs 35 EUR.

I haven't tried the sleeve, but I have the m-edge go in purple for my K2 and I love it, it is gorgeous and can be folded back when you read. It has hinges to keep the K2 well fixed. I can definitely recommend it !

I dont have a sleeve either, but I think it is safer to have the book style that automatically covers your kindle rather than remembering to always put it back in the sleeve. I dont need/want to read with a 'naked' kindle but some people do. I bought an Oberon cover, but have just this hour purchased the MEdge Go. Currently selling on Amazon for $29.99 I have the Amazon reader too, but was concerned about the hinge and it doesnt seem to offer much padded protection.

Neither is worth it. It's a sleeve. It's rather useless to be honest. What you need is a cover. A sleeve will not protect your reader when you have it out of the sleeve and the reader is naked. You need a cover to keep it protected. And then ther eis the issue of what to do with the sleeve when you are carrying the reader with you away from home and you take it out of the sleeve to read something. Just get a good cover and forget sleeves exist.

Jon... the M-Edge Go is a cover, not a sleeve....

OK, I am confused, The M Edge cover is a padded cover. Are you suggesting it isnt good protection? Have you seen it?

The M-Edge GO is a padded in a book format, and is a very good protection. It just does not have a latch to maintain it securely closed, but I do not need one.

here the cover:

I am asking which one you guys find better:
1. the amazon kindle cover (link
2. the m-edge go link

With the extra information that the amazon is going to cost 30 EUR and the m-edge 35.

I can't speak to either of those covers, but comparing the medge prodigy with the Amazon cover, the medge is far superior

Personally, I like having my Kindle in it's slim, sexy, undressed self when I'm reading. I have a sleeve to protect my K when it's lying around the house, susceptible to being knocked off a table, having things dropped on it, etc.

I do too. but when we go out in public I have a cover. it is easy to flip it open and read when/wherever and not have to juggle with the sleeve. it also makes it possible to kind of hide what you are doing if you are in one of "those" situations

Just last week I bought M Edge Go for $29US through Amazon, which is much cheaper than your quote.

Yeah well, but when you add shipping to europe - which is probably where the op lives as he quotes prices in euro - ordering at amazon(.com) looks more like this:
Code:
Order #2: M-Edge Accessories
Subtotal of Items:            EUR 20,80
Shipping & Handling:          EUR 16,02
                              ---------
Total for this Order:         EUR 36,82
As I found out when I accidentally ordered an M-Edge Go with my Kindle without checking the shipping costs

Still, and to get back on topic, I love my M-Edge Go! cover very much, it is very nice and of a great build quality and it has IMHO (at least) one advantage over the Amazon cover - it uses elastic bands in addition to the hinge system to hold the Kindle in place. This eliminates the risk to crack open the case when opening it the wrong way, whis seems to be a problem with the Amazon case (or so I've read).
Also it smells nice

I have the M-Edge Go cover. I think it's great. It's slim but it still protects your device.
