Nice looking slim-line case
on August 30, 2012
The Belkin Folio case is a nice looking slim-line case, which features a built in screen protector, easel, and soft velveteen interior. It is made of a synthetic which appears water- resistant, though not water proof. The texture on the exterior provides for a better grip, and some extra interest as a design feature.
The case seems to be well made, though not terribly substantial. This could be a plus or minus, depending on what you are looking for. If you want to maintain a very slim profile, this case will give you that. It has a bit less protection than I generally like. That said, there is a trade off which comes with padding: not as slim a profile.
Because I generally carry my tablet in my purse or another bag, I lean toward cases with more protection. My husband carries his and more like a book, and leans towards trimmer cases (like this one).
The easel is sturdy but not substantial (i.e., will not hold as well as a kickstand). However, if you are in an environment where you do not have to worry about kids, or pets... it will work well enough, and it is nice to be able to sit it on a desk or table(particularly for watching video).
I'd say this is a 5 star case for people looking to travel as light as possible. For those who are looking for more protection, i would give it a 3 or 4.
As one with quite a few gadgets (all in cases) i personally prefer the cases I have gotten from Griffin technologies, but they are not available to fit every brand, every size (and I suspect many people would opt for a trimmer case).
This is a nice case which packs a lot of features into a small profile, great for those looking for a trim light case.
It is less than ideal for those who want a bit of padding (particularly for such a large screen).
