Hi,
I ordered my Red Marbled leather executive jacket on Feb 9th (Kindle release date) directly from M-Edge. Originally they offered the clip style (then they stopped offering it, then offered it again) and subsequently renamed it the Prodigy to differentiate it from the 4 point mounting system. First let me say, I really love it. It comes out of the box smelling like the real leather and it is soft and pliable. The marbling is subtle in both texture and color. While it is truly red, those who are sensitive to nuances of reds will want to know that the red is not a blue red but on the orange side. I know this only from selecting reds for my nails. ;) The inside is indeed a very soft grey suede. I had purchased the e-luminator previously (had no trouble with battery installation or performance) and the light fits snugly in the pocket behind the Kindle and it lays flat along the inside of the binding. I also have no trouble twisting/positioning the light when I need it, something I read earlier that presented a problem with some users.

The clips, it seems to me, provides a marriage of floating and corner mounting. There is matching redl leather strip on the inside of the binding that holds two clips on the left that fit into the two side slots of the Kindle 2. The bottom clip is sort of a teardrop shape that is stationary and points slightly downward. One puts the Kindle 2 into that clip first and slides the Kindle 2 up to position it where it needs to be. The top clip is like an arrow and is on a spring. You push the spring down to get it into the top slot and then let go, this allows it to go back to the upwards position and lock the Kindle in with the head of the arrow. Then you position the elasticized mounts on the right to secure that side. Lastly, the cover does bend all the way back on itself easily. I have gained such great knowledge from the generosity of people's posts here that I felt compelled to provide what I could in great detail. Please feel free to ask any questions about it. Sincerely, Dianne

Pictures are on the www.buymedge.com website and are accurate. I was told that the first shipment went out Tuesday, since I ordered on the first day, I mine was in that shipment. Seems they too, are organized about first come first served stuff.

I just received myM Edge moments ago. I too order on Feb 9th. Mine is Camel colored to go with the Quest skin (one day). I love that it has the hinges and the elastic corners. Since I am at work I will have to wait to post pictures.

Dianne, that is a great review. Would you consider posting it over on our review board? Copying and pasting is fine. Let me know if you have questions or need help.

Thanks for that review!  I'm a new Kindle owner and can't make a decision about 4-corner mounting vs. hinges because I have nothing to base it on.  But from reading your review, it sounds like the Prodigy allows the Kindle to be more 'free' yet still secure, if that makes any sense.

Thanks again!

Thanks VERY much for the review, Dianne.
I am happy with the Amazon jacket, but wanted something.....well, more attractive.
The Oberon covers will not come with the hinge and that is a show-stopper for me.
So the Prodigy was the solution I was looking for but I was not sure that it was going to be "right".
Your review tells me that it is.
Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

I just got my red prodigy cover. It is just as Diane described. My first Kindle and my first m-edge cover. It is a really pretty red and the hinge with the two corners feels very secure. Waiting for M-edge to restock the e-luminator booklight and then I will be set.  ;D

Thanks for the great review, Dianne. Red's the color I want, too!
I went to the M-Edge site and looked at the pictures there... I don't understand something...
What is that white plastic-looking cylinder thingie in the fold of the cover?

That is an optional light.
The light in undergoing redesign and will not be available until late March.

It is a flexible book light that is sold seperately from the cover. It slides in the top slot of the cover behind the Kindle.
