I recently recieved my m-edge last week and love it! It holds on to my kindle quite well. It far better than the orgininal Kindle cover. I think that the pocket in the front can help me avoid other case purchases for a while, because I can easily change the image to go with my skins. Its made of faux leather. I love it so far. The additional space to the left of the kindle (made for pens and m-edge book light) allows me to hold onto kindle with a firmer grip without having to worry about accidently hitting a button.
