After having my Kindle for a couple of months and starting to notice marks and slight scratches on it I decided I needed to purchase a cover for it. There are hundreds to chose from online but the Trendz E-reader case seemed to have the best reviews and wasn't too expensive at £11.99 with free delivery.
There are so many different designs and colours to chose from which I love as there is something for everyone. I chose a pink one with white dots and a black love heart on the strap. The strap helps to keep the tablet inside securely. It is designed to fit the kindle fire but any 7 inch tablet will fit in the case fine.
The case also has a built in stand so you can stand the tablet up at an angle to use. I also like the fact you can charge your tablet up with it still in the case. The case itself is good quality material and I have dropped my kindle a couple of times and it has helped protect it from any further marks or scratches.
I would definitely recommend to anyone who has a tablet. It is cheap to purchase and will keep your tablet in perfect condition.
I bought my kindle a few months ago, and being quite frugal and keeping things cheap and cheerful I bought a simple cover for it on ebay. It was pink, plain and simple, no frills, no fuss and only cost £2.99 however, after some wear and tear the edges began to fray and it looked a bit beat up. I had read loads of good reviews of this Trendz E-reader case last year, so it was subtly added to my Christmas wislist, and luckily for me my wish came true!
The cases can come in a wide variety of styles, colours and patterns, and luckily my sister knows my taste quite well and chose me a pretty safe option - just a plain purple one as purple is my favourite colour. I can see on amazon currently this is selling for £10.96 with free delivery, so I think this is actually a pretty nifty bargain!
It's made of a leather like material, quite thick and cushiony yet robust ad it doesn't look cheap and tacky. There is a strap across to open and close it, a bit like a wallet, and when it opens there is a small pocket on the flap which I find handy for sometimes sticking little notes in to remind me of things I need to do! It looks good quality, is really soft and girly and I think it's miles superior to the cheap imitation covers you can buy out there.
The case itself is easy to use, I have a Kindle and it literally slips into the case like a glove and stays put, with the case holding the kindle in all the right places, so the button in the centre at the bottom, the USB charging port, and the buttons on the side to change page are easily accessible without being fiddly. One aspect which is superior to my cheap cover I had before is that it stays completely put, as before when I would go to insert the charger, the kindle would move around inside the case making it really impractical as it was almost too big!
The case is very streamlined and compact, as well as the kindle being sleek and lightweight itself, so the whole package is really handy at slipping in my bag and not being bulky so I can take it with me and read wherever I go. I would certainly recommend this cover as it is good quality, really protects my kindle, fitting it perfectly snugly and looks aesthetically pleasing, without breaking the bank. Of course it helps to get it as a gift so I didn't pay for it myself, but I think if I hadn't I would have paid for it eventually! I can't think of any faults so it gets 5 stars!
I was very pleased to receive my shiny new Kindle Fire for Christmas. I am very clumsy and accident prone so I wanted to get a cover for it as soon as I could before I dropped it or the screen got cracked or damaged in my bag. I did a quick search on line and chose the Turquoise Floral Folio Case by Trendz.
About the product
This cover has been designed for the Kindle Fire HD 7 inch. The case has been made from a 'hard wearing material' which will protect your kindle from becoming damaged or broken, The case has a soft beige inner lining which will be gentle on the screen and protect it from getting scratched or damaged.
The case has an elastic strap which holds the case shut and prevents it from opening in your handbag. The elastic strap also holds the Kindle in place and this makes it easy to remove and insert the Kindle as needed. The case can be propped open when you are viewing videos on your Kindle and it can be tilted at three different angles so you can adjust it to suit your needs.
Appearance and Price
Mine is very pretty and girly. It is a beautiful turquoise shade and it is covered in pink roses and smaller multi coloured scattered little flowers. The elastic strap is pink and suits the product well and the inside of covering is soft and beige. The product cost me around £15 from Amazon with free delivery.
The outer casing of this product is both solid but cushioning so it protects my Kindle in my handbag. The inner casing is as soft as promised and it helps to keep my screen clean and scratch free. The actual patterning of the product does look overly expensive but then I suppose it wasn't. You can see the blue stitching around the edge of the case but it seems pretty secure so far. The casing is both soft and smooth to the touch and it is really colourful and eye catching.
It is easy to both insert and remove the Kindle into and from the case. It feels secure and I don't have to worry about it falling out. The lid of the case folds back easily when you are reading or browsing and you don't have to hold it in place. It isn't heavy at all so it doesn't really impact on the weight of the product. The slot holds the lid in place well so that you can have the Kindle standing up on its own and it makes watching movies easy and enjoyable.
The case doesn't affect the sound or muffle the video and I can see hear it properly. It doesn't cover any of the actual screen or ruin the view at all although sometimes it does slide in at a funny angle but this is easily corrected. Adjusting the angle of the case is handy too as I prefer different viewing angles when I am in bed to when I am in my chair. Being me, I have of course dropped my Kindle on a couple of occasion and the cushioned cover has thankfully prevented any damage to my Kindle so far. Here's hoping that it long continues!
All in all, I am very happy with my Kindle cover. It is very attractive and eye catching and protects both the screen and the Kindle from becoming damaged. It is easy to insert and remove the Kindle and it doesn't the sound or the picture on the screen. I am very happy with my cover.
My Kindle Paperwhite case was given as a gift, but Amazon tells me that you can currently buy it for £13.67. That's a decent price for what is a nice case.
They come in a variety of patterns - mine is white with red ladybirds on it. Patterns are easier to fit to personality than just a plain colour - my mum picked mine because I'm known for liking bugs. It's nicely padded, which gives some protection when it's banging about in my bag. It fits very snugly, which is always a concern when you don't have a case made by the manufacturer.
Unlike the official case, however, there's no magnetic close which you do miss a bit. Instead there's an elastic band which goes around the case which you tuck the top in to close it. It works fine, but without the advantage of the official case that it turns on as soon as you open it. However, I'm not sure that one key-press would be worth changing case for.
It's survived eight months of banging around my bag so far, and still looks like new. Altogether this is a well-made case which provides good protection.
I have had my kindle fire now for quite a while and as an avid reader it is one of my most prized possessions. Sadly around a month ago I dropped it whilst walking down the stairs, this did not end well and sadly a small crack had formed in the left hand corner of my screen. I suppose I've only got myself to blame, one for being so clumsy and two for not having any sort of case on it. This had to change.
I searched through quite a lot of sites for well rated cases; I needed something of a high quality to protect my already wounded kindle. I was torn between this Trendz case and a Belkin verve case, but I much preferred the designs on the Trendz cases so I put my faith in them.
I had decided on my case, now I had to choose my design. I was quite shocked at how many varieties they had available. After much deliberation I chose what Amazon calls Turquoise Floral. This is basically a turquoise case, with roses and daisy's dotted randomly over the case. I liked the overall design, I feel the design was sort of Cath Kidston'esque.
I brought this at the time from Amazon for £14.99, but have just seen that it's been reduced to £14.35. Not a massive reduction but pennies make pounds as they say. I have seen this exact case on a couple of websites but it is predominantly found on EBay. However other styles are more readily available.
Once purchased to insert your kindle or similar tablet device is very easy. There are elasticated fastening in each corner which allow you to slip your tablet in. These secure the device in and I have never had an issue with it moving around or falling out. These elasticated corner pieces also allow my kindle to be removed quickly and easily, if so needed. The case also has an elastic strap, which pulls from the back over the front of the case, to ensure security when closed. I am more than satisfied that my kindle is safe and secure in this casing.
The inside of the case is soft suede like material. My screen always comes out looking quite polished after it has been closed. I believe this to be down to the smoothness of the material. This also protects my screen from any further scratches.
Apart from the want of protection my other specification when looking for a case was a built in stand. This does come with one inbuilt and has a total of three viewing angles, so will suit all needs for the kindle. Whether that be watching a film or typing on the touch pad. I think this stands securely and rarely falls over of its own accord, unless I've knocked it of course.
My overall opinion of this case is a very positive one. I love the design, it's very fashionable and I've had many compliments when using it on the train. People who love vintage items this is a one for you, due to its Cath Kidston feel. During the time I've had it I have dropped it a few times, not from great heights. Just off the sofa or my bedroom chair, but there has been no further cracks, and the crack I already had has not worsened. The outside of the case is very durable and easily cleaned, with a quick wipe over with a damp cloth. My kindle is easy to insert and remove, and I am happy that it is sufficiently secure within. It's very reasonably priced and I simply cannot fault it. So it's getting 5 stars from me.
Being a little bit clumsy I decided to buy a case to protect my Kindle. I was very worried about scratching the screen especially when the Kindle was in my bag - In this Trendz Case I found a great and stylish solution.
The Trendz cases come in many different designs. Mine is different to the one in the picture above. Mine is pink with while dots all over it. Very girly and in my opinion stylish.
This case protects your Kindle from scratches and marks as well as allowing full access to it without being restricted. You can use all the functions, put it on charge and access all ports whilst the case is still on. Great design!
I am thinking about buying this product again just in another design as I love it that much, I would recommend it to anyone looking to protect an E-reader. You can buy this item online, I bought mine from amazon for £12.99. Great price.
10/10 for value
Product: Trendz Folio Case
I've always been a huge fan of reading so when the Kindle first became available for sale I knew that I had to have one. There is nothing better for me than having my books all there in one place plus it didn't take up as much space as all my books used to which is a huge bonus for me. I do prefer a nice clutter free minimal space.
I decided that I wanted a protective case for my Kindle to protect it from any potential damage. I wanted something pretty but which would also do the job of protecting it at the same time. I did my research and finally decided on the Trendz Folio Case priced at £13.55 from Amazon. The case is a red floral ditsy print, very pretty and kind of vintage looking which suit my tastes perfectly. This reminds me a lot of the Cath Kidston print which I'm a huge fan of. The case comes in a lot of different patterns and colours so be sure to check them out.
The case is made from faux leather, this material is soft to the touch, a little cushioned with a matt finish. The case covers the front and back of the kindle for full protection, using the straps inside the case of the kindle you simply slip the kindle into place so that the straps cover the corners of the kindle are securely holding it into place. There is also a large over strap inside the case of the kindle which clasps to hold your kindle case firmly closed when it is not in use.
The case has offered full protection to my kindle and I'm pleased to report that it's protected it fully from any knocks and scrapes.
A reasonably priced, stylish, colourful and hard wearing case which does it's job just as it's intended to do. I would definitely recommend this case to others.
I've since upgraded to the Kindle Paper white but I gave the Kindle described above along with the case to my mum and I'm pleased to say that it is still going strong.
Dooyoo Star Rating: 5/5 Stars
When I had a kindle for Christmas I knew straight away I would be taking it everywhere with me so decided to get a case for it.
I found a flower print Trendz kindle case on Amazon for £11.99 which I like so purchased that to protect my kindle.
I was surprised at how many designs you can get of this case (union jack, animal print, butterflies, stars, plain colours and many more).
The case is hard plastic covered in fabric. The fabric is tough and thick but feels soft to the touch. You kindle is secured on the back of the case by an elastic strap and the front flips over to protect the front.
I am very impressed with my choice of kindle cover, it good quality and adds abit of colour and fun to a boring looking device. I like the fact it's not too bulky so it's still a lot smaller than a book to hold. The main reason I wanted a kindle case was to protect it against scratches while transporting and I'm please to say it's passed no damaged has occurred to my kindle.
I would recommend this case to anyone who has a kindle or any kind of e-reader or tablet. Definitely well worth the £12 and the extensive range of designs should allow anyone to find a cover they like.
This is the perfect case for protecting your e-reader suitable for the popular Kindle. This particular design, although I believe there are others, is blue with small white spots, then larger white spots with flowers in the middle, its bright but sophisticated.
This case reminded me of the popular Cath Kidson floral style, the pink band allows the case to be kept shut and adds a nice touch. Aside from the attractive design, the case is strong and secure, it stops the e-reader from being scratched or damaged when not in use, the inside is soft so it protects it if you are carrying it around. There is access to all ports and functions whilst the case is on so that won't be a problem.
I highly recommend this case, it has lasted a really long time, the material is good quality, so if you like the colour and style then I say- Go for it!
Reccomended to anyone looking for a sturdy amazon kindle case. oh wow after looking extremely hard for a cover to suit my kindle I finally found this. The colour scheme is funky, eye catching and stylish. Reminding me of a Cath Kidson design. The case provides good protection for my e-reader and the band keeps it shut well.
The only problem is that the stitching on the inside of the case already seems to be coming loose. I am worried that it won't last for much longer (I have only owned the case for 3 months). I ordered through Argos and the delivery seemed to take a while as they said they had none left in the warehouse although there were some available on the website??
Despite this the case is great value for money and protects for e-reader properly whilst not giving the image of a bulky, ugly case.
I have always loved reading, and when as part of my 30th birthday presents my lovely husband bought me a Kindle 4, I decided to spend some money on a nice case for it so I could take it out and about without worrying about damaging it.
I decided to go with the Trendz E-Reader Case because it was around the right price (I paid £11 for this in Tesco Homestyle, which is a non food Tesco in Denton Crown Point, Manchester - you can also get it easily on the high street and in larger supermarkets and online at places like eBay and Amazon).
The Trendz E-Reader Case comes in so many different styles - from plain colours to patterns, animal prints, spots, stripes, and the one I have, which is a light duck egg blue with white spots and pretty flowers all over it. I am a huge fan of Cath Kidston prints and this is exactly like a Cath Kidston print case. It's not material, however - it's a far more durable and waterproof faux-leather type material (with a very slight texture to it). There is a closing strap made of a stretchy ribbon of ribbed elastic, which is a lot more durable than you would expect, mine is blue.
The Trendz E-Reader Case is really easy to use - you slip your Kindle inside much like you'd slip a debit card into a wallet. It can't fall out as it's a pretty snug fit, and you can see all of the screen. If like me (and like most Kindles are now) you have a wi-fi model you'll be pleased to know it doesn't affect the wi-fi in any way, and that the charging port on the bottom, the earphone port and the little sleep button are all very easy to access with this case. It's exactly as stated - made to measure.
The Trendz E-Reader Case opens like a book, and the 'front cover' (being the flap which protects the screen when not in use, and which is secured by the elastic ribbon), can be folded back around the case much like a real book, so you can hold just the width of the Kindle and not have to hold it like an actual open book. It never seems to buckle or wrinkle and the material being very durable means that it is waterproof and doesn't seem to get dirty (I've had mine 18 months now and I've wiped it once with a baby wipe to keep it fresh - talk about low maintainance!)
Of course, because I've used the Trendz E-Reader Case for pretty much all of the time I've had my Kindle, my Kindle is in as new condition, which is brilliant, because I do use it a lot, and because it was a gift. It's been on holiday with me abroad three times and to the seaside here in the UK more times than I can count. I also like how the Trendz E-Reader Case means that my Kindle doesn't look obvious when I'm using it out and about - it looks a bit like a writing pad when closed), being as I live near a very busy city where unfortunately pick pockets and opportunistic theft is rife sadly, it's sensible to be cautious and smart when using technology out and about.
I really recommend the Trendz E-Reader Case, especially for around £11, because I've used cheaper tablet cases which have been rubbish which is why I didn't want to get a cheap generic one from eBay for my Kindle. It really is a great Kindle case which is perfect for my Kindle 4. I would further recommend it as it comes in so many different styles whilst retaining the same build quality, so you can find one to suit your own personal tastes. I also think it makes a great gift, too.
Overall - I absolutely love my Cath Kidston-esque Trendz E-Reader Case and I'm really happy that I plumped for it in Tesco. Five stars out of 5 from me and a great big recommendation - it'll be the only Kindle case you'll ever need to buy.
I bought this Kindle case as I was sick of carrying my Kindle around wrapped up in a tea towel to prevent it getting scratched!!
To be honest, the Kindle was bought for me as a gift ad whilst I love to read, I like the feel of an actual, physical book and so I didn't think I'd actually use it that much. As such, I didn't worry about going out to get a case for it as I wasn't sure if I'd get regular use for it.
Hence the tea towel (I do get some strange looks on the train when I pull that out I can tell you)
After a couple of months of daily use I realised that the Kindle was here to stay and so I set out to find a case for it to stop it getting scratched. I didn't want a plain back one, my day to day life is boring enough thank you very much, and so while searching on Amazon (naturally) I came across this Trendz range of fun and funky accessories.
I went for the ladybird one as I love ladybirds and I love the white and red design.
The case has a red elastic strap from top to bottom to hold the case in place, it is like one of those old fashioned slim line diaries that you used to get in WH Smith.
The case cost me £12 and for that, I got free delivery from Amazon so I have absolutely no issues with the price. As always, delivery from Amazon cannot be faulted.
The case holds my kindle in tight, without restricting any access to it. The case feels ever so slightly padded but I don't know whether it would protect my Kindle completely if I was to drop it - hopefully I won't ever test that theory out! The case is very lightweight and it looks as though I will be able to wipe it with a damp cloth when it starts to get a little grubby, although I haven't got to that stage yet.
The cover of the case opens up and you can either hold it with two hands like you would hold a book, or you can do what I do which is fold the front cover all the way round so it meets the back cover and then use the elastic strap to hold it in place. This way you can hold your Kindle with one hand.
In summary, I love this Kindle holder. It looks great, it was cheap and it keeps my new Kindle, well, new looking!
I've had a Kindle 4 for about 18 months now, and prior to that I had the Kindle keyboard. I usually always have my Kindle in my overstuffed handbag, or my tote bag for work, and I definitely always take my Kindle in my travel bag when I travel for work or for pleasure. I do take care of my Kindle, as I'd be lost without it, and so I always keep it protected in a case, especially as it's normally stuffed into an overflowing handbag or travel bag and so l want to make sure that it doesn't get squashed or damaged or scratched.
I've just been away for a short break recently visiting some friends, and unfortunately I managed to leave my Kindle case on the train from the airport into the city. I was so engrossed in my book that I didn't realise we'd got to my stop, once I did realise I just rammed my Kindle into my handbag, grabbed my stuff and quickly exited the train. I didn't realise until later on that I'd actually left my case on the train, it must have fallen off my knee as I stood up to get off.
I did mention this to my husband in an email and I told him that I was having to wrap my Kindle in a jumper to protect it until I got home, and I'd buy another case when I got back. When I arrived home there was a package waiting for me from Amazon, my husband had ordered me a replacement Kindle case!
The case he ordered was this Trendz e-reader case. Now I'm going to sound really ungrateful here, especially as this was a very thoughtful gift, but I really don't like it, and I kinda wish he hadn't bought it for me!
OK, so he bought this from Amazon, and he tells me that it was just over £10. The Trendz e-reader cases come in many different patterns/colourways. The design that he chose for me is called 'brown campervan', and the cover is a chocolate brown background with quirky light beige coloured VW campervans all over the cover. The inside of the case is a plain light beige. I do really like the colour and the quirky campervan pattern on the case, it's the actual design of the case itself that I don't like.
I've always chosen slip in, or zip around cases previously for my Kindles, this one is more like a 'book design' cover, with my Kindle sitting inside and then having the front flap that just swings open. My Kindle 4 fits in this perfectly, (and my sister's Nook fits in this perfectly too, in fact I may actually donate it to my sister). Inside the case are four little elastic straps which hold the four corners of my Kindle securely on the bottom of the case. This is the kind of case that you would keep permanently attached to your Kindle and you can easily press all the buttons on your Kindle and read whilst your Kindle is in the case. It's also possible to charge your Kindle without removing it from the case as the little charging port is permanently exposed. The front cover of the case does seem to get in my way when I'm reading, so I tend to fold it back and under my Kindle, like folding the cover of a book back under itself. I'm not sure how well the spine of the case will last though with constantly being folded back on itself. I've had my case for a couple of weeks now, and the spine shows no sign of cracking so far, but I don't suspect it will actually last all that long.
To close the case there's just an elastic strap that clasps the two covers together over your Kindle. It seems very secure, and there doesn't seem any way that the Kindle could fall out, providing that the four corner straps are used as well. What I really don't like though is that it's kind of open to a certain extent, dust and stuff can get in. I would have preferred it had it had a zip around closure, rather than just the elastic strap. In fact after just using this for a couple of weeks my Kindle doesn't seem quite as clean, I find myself having to wipe over the screen most times before I start to read.
The case is quite soft and padded and therefore will protect your Kindle from knocks, and getting squashed in your handbag. However I'm still struggling with the 'open' aspect of it. I occasionally have make up explosions or spillages in my handbag, and I don't like that powder etc will easily end up on my Kindle as it isn't enclosed completely within a case, and surely powder/liquids etc getting in the the little charging port hole isn't a good thing?
It is quite a sleek case, and it is quite stylish looking, I personally just don't think that it's very practical. I know that this type of case is actually very popular, but I personally think that a zip around case or a proper flap top case gives much better protection.
WHAT IS IT?
A cover for my Kindle.
I am very happy with the design and I bought this because I did not like plain Kindle covers I have seen, the black leather cases look stylish but I wanted my Kindle to look more fun than that. I have got 2 covers from Trendz because I like to change how my Kindle looks, they are both animal print and one is zebra and the other one is leopard. They are both very good and the cover is made of a tough fabric so it feels soft to hold and I like the way the animal print looks good on the soft material. My Kindle is held safe in the back cover and the front flips over to protect the screen when it is not in use, the spine is false leather and it is flexible so you can bend the cover right back if that is how you like to hold it.
WHAT I THINK
I am very happy with my Kindle covers and I am glad that I chose this brand when I had been looking at the official Kindle covers to start with but could not find one I liked. The spines on both covers is a little bit creased but not damaged at all and this is after me folding them back most of the time when I read, the inside of the spine looks a bit dirty now where I have handled it often while I have been reading but it doesn't show when the Kindle is closed.
My Kindle feels safe when it is inside these covers and that is when I am reading and while the cover is closed also. I carry my Kindle around in my bag and do not worry that it is going to be damaged because it is protected very well by this cover. I thought it was funny when they were new that they are not very padded and I did not think the cover would be secure but the front and back covers are rigid and when they are folded closed they form a good strong barrier between my Kindle and the outside world, I do not think the cover would stop it from being broken if I dropped it heavily but will stop it getting scratched and bashed.
I paid £10 only for my Trendz Kindle cover and I am very happy with it. I have bought a light to clip onto it so I can read without having the light on. I like the strap for keeping the cover closed and think that is better than the magnetic closures on covers that are more expensive.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Well my E-reader is now like my companion, I take it everywhere with me but this also means I am constantly worried about scratches on the E-reader and any dust/crumbs getting into my little library. I had looked at some E-reader cases online but they were very plain and over expensive for what they were.
Then on my recent shopping trip to Sainsbury's, I stumbled across the TRENDZ E-reader case which comes in a large range of colours and designs. They are lovely and look very similar to the Cath Kidston designs, the ranges include flowers, tribal and butterfly style cases and are all in a tough vinyl style hardwearing case. The have an elastic bank to keep the reader secure, this is on the outer case and then on the inside it has elastics on each of the four corners to make sure the reader stays secure (very handy so the reader doesn't slip out onto the floor etc.) It also converts into stand so perfect for using on a table or hard surface.
I chose the Butterfly design and it is beautiful, I don't want to put my E-reader away anymore I want it on show and I know that it is safe and secure - protected from scratches (my main worry). These retail at £23 normally in Sainsbury's but luckily it was on better than half price and I purchased this for only £10.99, cheap at half the price!
These cases actually fit many E-readers including the Kobo Touch, Kindle 4 and Simple Touch. I can't believe how luxurious these cases are, strong, sturdy, protects well, looks lovely and a reasonable price. I will recommend this to everyone who has an E-reader.
