Excellent case
I have had this case for a couple of months now and thought it was time to give a review. I must say that I am very impressed, in fact I would say that it is the best device case I have used. I was a bit unsure about the sticky pads to hold the device but they work very well and have held the device securely since I put it in to the case without an slips or issues. The case is very durable, it's thrown in my work bag day after day and still look as good as new. The automatic switch off when closed feature works and is very useful and the elastic strap holds the case securely closed. The case was a bit stiff at first but with use has now worn in and easily opens and folds right back on its itself during use. When folded back it gives quite a nice angle for typing on a desk or table. To watch tv/movies the case can be used as a stand by slightly opening the edges of the case and using a small plastic clip to stop the back cover from slipping and the device falling flat, this is a simple solution but works quite well. I would recommend this case to anyone, it protects the device well and look good. Wish they made a book type case like this for the Galaxy S3, as if they did I would certainly buy one.

Initially I was unsure about buying this cover because I thought it might degrade the user experience as the tablet is fixed semi permanently (via "special" stick tape) to the cover but it definitely doesn't. I primarily wanted it for protection whilst in transit so considered buying a sleeve but feel this provides greater protection whilst looking great. Additionally the cover disguises the tablet as a notebook making it less likely to attract attention from thieves. The sleep wake function of the cover is very useful as well. My only gripe which isn't really a big deal is it is slightly hard to reach the volume buttons on the side of the tablet. I imagine this could be a bigger problem for those with bigger fingers.
