Good case while docked, not great for just the tablet
on January 10, 2013
I ordered this case after looking at a number of different options. Based on the reviews and the video on Caseen's web site, it looked this case would be a good solution for my new tablet, both used on its own and when docked.
First, the case is a very nice quality and appears to be well made. There are a number of color options, which I appreciated; I purchased the green case from Caseen's web site. I'm not sure why, but the leather on the right and left edges bulges a bit when I put my tablet in, and does not lay flat. Also, the top edge of the case is very close to the top of the screen and sometimes makes it difficult to hit buttons that align with the top of the screen.
The magnetic closure seems to work just fine with the tablet, and when I have the dock attached the strap holds everything closed. When not docked, you can charge the tablet with the case closed, thanks to a little cut-away that can be opened/closed as needed. I really like this feature. When the dock is on the tablet it holds open very nicely and I don't have problems with it becoming unbalanced and falling over.
Aside from some difficulty accessing menus/buttons along the top, the only thing I really don't like about this case is that it does not hold the tablet up when the dock is not attached. The bottom is not sturdy when folded and it keeps falling over backward. Also, even if it did stay upright, the angle of the screen is close to 90 degrees and is not the most comfortable for working with the tablet.
