Anyone using an M-Edge cover?

Although M-Edge doesn't make a cover specifically for the Jetbook or Aluratek Libre, they do make covers that fit the Sony Pocket Edition (PRS-300). The Jetbook and Libre are 1/4" taller than the Pocket Edition, but the same width and about the same thickness. Does anyone have one of these covers on their Jetbook or Libre, and if so, how does it fit? I know the Jetbook Lite wouldn't work because of its protruding battery cover. I am interested in the Go! and Executive jackets.

I just got the m-Edge Go for my jetBook and the fit is fine. Looks nice too.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

I purchased and use an Medge Platform Jacket for my Aluratek Libre Pro. I like it a lot. There is an edge on the left side of the Jacket that I've found to be perfect for resting my thumb and then using the slider.

M-Edge has all their covers for Sony Pocket Reader on clearance. Most are $15.99, quite the discount from last time I looked at them.

Can you give us an idea of the weight of the cover? I had the Kindle 3 in my hands for awhile, and the cover doubled the weight of the device. Thanks.

My Go! Jacket weighs 4 ounces by my postal scale.

4 ounces is not bad at all. I'm looking at the Platform Jacket, and the eLuminator light.

I can't comment on the covers but I and others have had problems with M-Edge. They have a reputation for advertising items though out of of stock then sitting on your money for extended periods of time before refunding ot. They also are slow about responding to emails, if they respond at all. Use caution when doing business with them.

I have the platform m-edge cover and using my kitchen scales it weighs 7.25 ounces. The eluminator-2 light weighs 1.25 ounces, so about 8.5 ounces total.

It is a sturdy, classy looking cover I have to say. Few months ago even with a discount coupon it cost me slightly over $50 for both. Now you can buy both for $29 before shipping. I think its a great deal if you need the eluminator. I have to say the eluminator goes well with the case, but as for lighting, I much prefer the xtraflex2 lights which I was able to get at Radioshack recently for 10 dollars- much better screen coverage. If you are not having to bring your ereader out travelling much, I don't think you need to spring for the eluminator.

When I saw this deal, I went ahead and bought another platform jacket. I don't have a second Libre yet, but I am hoping the price on that may drop lower still closer to Thanksgiving.
