Do I like the cover - yes. Do I see value for money - no, not really. It's basically the standard plastic hardcover with a thin leather veneer glued to it. It certainly doesn't smell like leather - more like the acrid stench of harsh glues and freshly minted plastics, but this is slowly fading. For $90 I expected something more substantial, something that felt solid in my hands, thick, hell even LEATHERY would have been nice! I wouldn't recommend thi to anyone else, and wouldn't get similar again.
Love this cover. I use my Kindle daily and this cover feels great to hold, and the look is great. Gives the Kindle a really nice quality feel. Very nice. Scratches show up but heal over time, which gives it a nice patina.
