I did put the jewel on before I put it on the case. my red one fell off everytime.. (I promised I did read it)
But the big sticking point for me is having to put it together like a jigsaw puzzle.. it's simply too much effort for a case.

After i wrote the review last night I tried to put it together to ship it back.. another 20 minutes.. those groves are just too much.

To the company's credit I sent them an email and they responded at once.. couldn't have been nicer about sending out a label for postage paid and a refund. I was very happy this was simple. They were very responsive.. which is a major plus.

If they change it and improve it overtime I would do business with them again, simply because of the way they responded but I don't want a case where I have 10 pieces to put together.

I am glad others enjoy it, as I said it's not a poorly made product it's just too much of a hassle.

Well its not just the little jewel thing.. I can live without the decor of it .. but it just doesn't move the toggle right.. (maybe that's part of the jewel issue). When I read one man thinned his out himself I can only see me screwing that up.

It just seems like alot to  remove to put a kindle in. I don't want to work that hard.

As I said its not a poorly made product, the fit is good and it was thought out but the pieces seem extreme to me.  I don't want assemble a case.. I want to put it in.. maybe latch it here and there and go :)

I didnt find it easy at all.. The lining up of the pieces with the grooves was very hard to see. All that clear plastic just melded together.
 It took a massive amount of time for me. Again I am not good assembly or puzzles, never have been my brain is just not wired for them.

I also have a cracked optic nerve which I am sure did not help the situation. so I am not putting the entire blame on the company. it was just to hard for me

The joystick kept pointing at the collection, I pressed it down and it asked if I wanted to delete it (NOT the entire collection) but one of the collection catagories, I should have been clearer.. sorry about that.

It never went where it was supposed to and the menu button for me was hit or miss

Its nice looking, very light and compact and others love it.. I do see why but for me having to keep track of six additional side pieces and figure it out was too much

IF you are good at that type of thing it may take no time at all, but it drove me crazy.

I am not saying its a poorly made product.. it's not.. I am just not a fan of all the parts and the joystick does need some work.

I am reading other reviews and some don't seem to have an issue.. who knows I could probably give it to my 7 year old niece and she would have  it together in a minute .. sad, but I can't master it :)

I also can't help but wonder with so many pieces one is bound to break, crack or chip, handling that many seems like it would be an issue by itself.

You may have a totally different experience.

Maybe I am the exception but I hate this case and am disappointed it didn't work out. (before you ask.. yes I read the entire guide)

First of all it does have a nice fit however that is the only thing that makese sense.. If you love puzzles or assembly this is the case for you. However I have never been good at either.

The case has six sliders that are curved in various ways that need to come off totally to put your Kindle in it.. then you have to place the kindle in the case and put the six sliders back in various orders and flip it around (make sure you don't miss a spot or the Kindle can fall out) This little process took over 25 minutes. YOu need good eyesight because you have to line it up with the little grooves and trust me clear on clear is not easy to see.  Two pieces or maybe three.. but six not including the two piece case.. so including the sliders, the case and the jewel thingie (two pieces) you have 10 pieces in the case!

then lets talk about the joystick.. the jewels kept falling off, one man had a review where he had a fix.. something about making the plastic thinner by shaving it down (yeah not going to be doing that). I am not a handy type of girl so this was not going to be on my radar.

The jewels kept falling off and the menu kept going to some other place the joystick wouldn't go where it needed too and I ended up almost deleting some of my collection files (it kept asking if I wanted to delete it)  (we know how long THOSE took to do)

The look is nice.. and I didn't need a waterproof, like the guardian.  I wanted something clear and lighter weight and easy to use but to remove six pieces seems extreme.. also the little plugs kept popping out.  I am hoping they will pay for the return shipping.. not because of the pieces but because of that joystick.

Again this may work for some of you and you many love it.. several good reviews, but this is just my take and I wanted to share. I was really lookingg forward to this purchase.. can't tell you how sorry I am that it didnt work out.

what is the discount code.. this is very cute

Im curious though.. doesn't that on off thing drive you crazy.. I read alot but get sidetracked sometimes so when I get back its in sleep mode.. the opening and reclose seems like a hassle.. I am not a camper (unless you count the limited room service menu at the Marriott after midnight) so it maybe more case then needed for someone like me... I am hoping that poor womans case was just a fluke..

she DID update though that she did not send her Kindle to medge.. she was able to finally pry it off with the  stick that comes with the compressed air can.. I am so glad she at least has the kindle intact.. Medge has a good reputation I cant imagine the wouldn't replace it for her.

I ordered one but it has not arrived yet.. what do you mean by jewels?

I find it very stable.. it has a cord in the back you can adjust.. I bought a keyboard for mine and returned it..

I have no problem typing in the oberon case because of the leather thickness it gives it a nice stand.. not sure if you have seen the Oberon website video on the Ipad cases.. but they made a few improvements.. I really love it.

IT is best to type horizonal on it though.. I have  had it at several meetings propped up on itself or standing with the legal notepad app to take general notes and its worked great. Also fine for my word processer app and email

Im not runing scared at all.. I decided this case was not for me before this post.. the on off switch and lack of access I would find to be an issue.. thankfully you have had no issues with yours.. that is good to know :)

There were so many reasons I didn't order this case and this sounds like one more..

They promoted this thing for over six months, which told me they were obviously having manufacturing issues with it. They deleted two of the color choices, again sounded like a manufacturing issue

then when it did come out the fact you can't access your on off switch.. really? that seems pretty basic to me.. then I read the weight and last but not least.. I invested in some nice skins.. I wanted a clear one not something that would totally cover it (okay this was NOT a deal breaker but it was there)

But the weight alone was enough for me to bow out. Then that hefty price tag for plastic didn't sit well either.

I did order the Klear Kase, got a shipping notice that is should be here around the 17th I think.. I will post my thoughts on it but for the price it seems like a better deal all the way around.

I did read where the Kindle Chronicles guy Len Edgerly took his Guardian body surfing.. love that.. LOL but I don't intend to use mine for that purpose.. so as long as it stays dry I am happy.. that sun thing.. that bugs me..

I live in the  South and its hot as blazes here.. I can't imagine how unahappy that woman is, but I am with the poster who said NO way would I send my Kindle to them!

Yes its much lighter.. while the Medge has a depth to it (and I love that one)  for my Ipad case it does not seem too.. In a kindle case it may be prettier since its smaller... but for the Ipad its just sort of blah... I did already find a buyer for it so I am glad its going to someone who wants it. It just didn't seem to have any personality.. and thank you for the compliment.  I do love silver, metallics.. etc this one just didn't do it for me :)

Congrats on being the proud owner of two Noreves, don't you love them?  I have the pink and the purple.  I switch them out about once each week, can't decide which one I like best.  If I ever have the extra money again, I'm seriously thinking of getting a white one.  I don't think I've heard of anybody with a white one, but I think I would like it.

that is a handy link to have on the Ipad.. thank you!

just the entire thing is underwhelming.. even though its leather I think its looks like plastic.. the color is not what I expected and the stand thing does not seem realistic.. I didnt even put my Ipad in it.. I looked at it.. boxed it back up and listed it here and it sold within minutes.  I wasn't expecting anything grand and over the top but it just looks well.. cheap to me.

I have a very nice Oberon on it and the richness of that leather is worlds away from this.. the two just don't compare.

It stands very well.. check out the video on the website that shows you how it works and I like it better then the Medge I had because I can adjust the stand width.. the Medge platform for my Ipad was hit or miss.. and its GORGEOUS.. I have had several people stop and ask me about it

its actually quite light.. that did surprise me its one of the lightest cases I have for the Ipad. Even lighter then the medge.. not sure of the weight though I could probably find out of you are interested

Archives / SOLD- Noreve Ipad case in Platinum.. NEW
« on: June 16, 2010, 04:32:07 pm »
Thanks guys! Its sold

I just recieved my case.. I am underwhelmed.. I am sticking with my black rose Oberon which is so much more "me".

Its new in box and since they don't allow returns I am putting it up for sale here (my Ipad has not even been near it)

I paid 85.00 it is brand new in box... I will be willing to sell it for 65.00 and that includes the shipping within the US.. or best offer.. details below.

I prefer Paypal as method of payment.. thanks

After weeks of waiting...I recieved my case today.. I admit I am underwhelmed.. its okay but I am not knocked out by it.. I am going to stick with my Black Rose Oberon so I am putting this one up for sale on the boards here in the sales area if anyone is interested or you can contact me directly.

I paid 85.00 it is brand new in box.. (30 minutes old to be exact).. and now back in the box. I will be willing to sell it for 65.00 and that includes the shipping within the US.. or best offer.. details below

you can also email me directly (which is faster!)  at

[email protected]

It does function the way the apple does.. not sure exactly what you mean..I hated my apple case.. but the oberon does the stand up.. etc.. again can you give me more details maybe I can give you a better response :)

this is a good reminder to back up.. I hate backing up my phone because it takes HOURS... I guess I need to bite the bullet and just do it
