Slim, smart, and lightweight, this ingenious cover is the perfect choice for protecting your NOOK HD. The polyurethane exterior, accented by a subtle "nook" logo, is both strong and smooth to the touch; inside, a plastic shell in contrasting charcoal cradles your device while offering full access to the controls. But that's only part of the story. An articulation on the front cover allows you to fold it back and tuck the edge into the metallic clip on the back of the case. The result is a sturdy stand that gives you the option of using your NOOK hands-free in landscape orientation, in either video-viewing mode or typing mode. (The viewing mode offers a more vertical angle.) Proving that this is a smart cover in every sense, it also puts your NOOK HD into sleep mode when you close the front flap and wakes it up when the flap is opened. A laser-etched "nook" logo on the back-cover clip adds to the visual appeal of this superior product.

As a cover, it's serviceable and a lovely color, but using it as a stand is frustrating at best. It's very difficult to get it to remain upright.
The Groovy stand is great for watching movies and when you turn your HD around it is at the perfect angle for typing emails. It is very light and comfortable in your hand for reading (just fold the front cover over the back of your HD). Because it is thin and light, your HD is still very easy to carry with you. It is not as nice looking as the leather(ish) covers for the HD, but its value as a stand outweighs its plain appearance.
I agree with the previous customer review. My nook has fallen off the table because the cover will not support the Nook in the upright position. I am looking for another case.
