Highly recommend it!

Case is sturdy and seems well designed and made. Excellent price! Will need time to see how well it holds up under constant use.
I really like it. It solves the irritations I had with my Samsung XE500T1C.
1. Using the keyboard dock on my lap does not work well, because I cannot tilt the screen back as far as I need to for the best viewing angle watching videos. With the tablet alone, it slides around on my lap or I have to prop it on a pillow for a better angle or because I am tired of holding it. Using the case as a stand gives you 3 angles of adjustment and leaves your hands free, and it does not slide around.
2. I like to leave my keyboard dock at my desk, plugged into charger and with mouse attached for productivity. But I had to unplug power and mouse and take keyboard with me when I left home so the screen would be protected. Then take the keyboard off when I got to work and find somewhere to stow it, so I could have the thiness and lightness of just the tablet. Then put the keyboard back on to go home. Then hook it back up at my desk. The case does add some thickness and weight, but not much, and it offers screen protection when traveling or when I have to set the tablet down, and a hand strap for security when I am carrying the tablet around using it.
3. Unlike some cases, you do not have to remove the case to dock the tablet. Pull it free from the bottom two clips, just like you do to use it as a stand, Then flip it back out of the way, leaving the top and side clips attached, and dock it. There are cases available if you want to have tablet and keyboard attached and put the complete unit in a case for travel, but that is not what this case is for.
4. The function of the tablet going to sleep when closing the case and waking up when opening it, works great. The openings for buttons, ports, camera, and S-pen are correctly placed.
All in all, this is a wonderful accessory for my tablet.
