I have this case (in pink) and I really love it. I had an m-edge executive case but wanted a cover with a stand. This case is very thin and light. I used to use my Kindle without a case
all the time but since I've had this I haven't taken it out--it's very convenient to have the stand. One thing--I was getting ready to put a new skin on my Kindle when I got the cover so
I thought I would see how well the case worked with the old skin before I put the new one on. It did ding up the upper corners of my skin and was a slightly tighter fit. I haven't yet put the new skin on but would probably trim the upper corners before I used the case with a Kindle skin.
To answer your question, I haven't tried dropping it on my hardwood floor. However, the rails that hold the Kindle are right at the very edge of the case so if the Kindle fell and hit along that plastic rail I would be a little worried about the shock damaging the screen. Honestly though, I would worry about that in any cover. Hope this helps.
