Does the job at a very reasonable price

In the end, this looks like just about every other case for the tablet, or any other tablet for that matter. It's a bit more lightweight than others, but fits the Fire HD 8 perfectly and works well as a stand. The only reason it didn't get five stars is that it came out of the wrapper smelling awful, and it took a couple of days for the stink to go away, especially when it got on my fingers. I'm sure it's some kind of sealant or treatment they used on the vinyl, but it's stinky.
Other than that issue, this is a perfectly fine case for a budget tablet. It should provide the right amount of protection, it works correctly by turning off the tablet when it is closed and waking it up when its opened, and as I said, it's a decent stand for tabletop viewing. You'll save a few bucks and get a perfectly fine case. Just beware of the smell but know that it does go away.
