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 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.

I LOVED this cover at first, though I also beleived it to have a design flaw in the alignment of the NOOK and cover. I got past that because of the slim design and sleep feature..excellent features ! What I could not get past was the fact that the top left frame of my NOOK would begin to buckle up after using for a time. It alarmed me the first time it happened but I was able to pop edge in place...I think that this began to happen as the unit warmed and the snugness of the cover would not allow for the expansion. After the third incident I was forced to acknowledge that I had a real problem and could only connect it to the cover as I had received it for Christmas as a gift and had not had this problem with the NOOKS outside frame when not using the cover prior. I returned it to the store and the.associate could see where the frame and glue had seperated and acknowledged my problem. I exchanged the beloved cover for another I did not nearly love as well. I miss the stand feature and sleep mode features. Please fix this B and N...Loved this stand less the potential for damage to my device.
The Groovy stand is terrific if you like to use your HD to watch movies or for typing emails. Set it straight up for movies or set it on its back for the perfect typing angle. It is very light and feels great in your hand while you are reading. The back of the stand is a plastic shell to protect your HD if it is dropped. The plastic is not as nice looking as a leather(ish) style cover, but may offer more protection. When you close the cover, the screen turns off, saving your battery. When I am streaming music to my Bluetooth speaker, closing the cover turns off the screen but does not interrupt the music. Streaming music with the screen off only uses about 50% of the battery over a ten hour period. Just press the N button to turn the screen back on. Lots of color options other than red on the Barnes and Noble website.
Just bought today and I love it!!!!!
