No where as nice as the one on my PRS650 and after 2 months of use reading one handed ,the cover is splitting at the hinge and coming apart...I always read one handed with the cover flipped back ,but apparently this one is not strong enough...I also miss the 2 intensity light on my 650 cover

Not worth it ...
I bought the red cover with light and I must say, it is ugly. I had no choice as it was the only design available at the time for the ereader that I bought. My previous red bookcover was so attractive and looked like a real cover for a book (red PRSASC65B). This red one looks shiny and cheap. The design is also different from PRSASC65B as you have to insert the ereader into cover. The other one you just had to slip the ereader between two tabs allowing the user to dust the ereader. I bought it at full price ($52) at the Best Buy in Ottawa but I wish you had given us a much better design. Hopefully, next year, you'll go back to the PRSASC65B design for the red cover.

Nice and compact
I bought my reader a few weeks ago and looked around for a cover before finally settling on this one in black. I chose it because it fits the reader perfectly, is slim and trim, provides good protection for the reader, and looks nice.
The light automatically turns on and off when it's pulled out or put back in it's storage space. The stem is very flexible for personal preference in positioning and the amount of light is just right for the page size. I really like this case for travel since it's hard to predict when extra light is needed. Using it means I'm always prepared.
The only shortcoming I've found is that at home I prefer to use my reader out of the case and I do find it a little hard to get out. Also, I like to keep the stylus with my reader so I wish the reader or case had a storage spot for it like my reader touch did.
I paid full price for the cover and thought it was somewhat expensive. However, after pricing others, I decided the good fit and light made it worth the price.

Awesome cover and light
Love this cover. The reader easily snaps into place adding very little bulk or weight to the reader. The reader feels secure. The light is easy to adjust and illuminates the entire screen evenly. So many of the covers on the market add a lot of bulk. I like the compactness, easily slips in my purse. Would have preferred a little more solid front flap for the money but still a huge improvement over other covers. Definitely a great accessory for your reader.
