Everything included in this bundle seems to be of very good quality and was definitely worth what I paid for it. It reallyis an outstanding deal. The only issues I have are withthecaseand are minor.
The first is that the magnets that keep the cover closed are a little weak: when using the wrist strap go carry the tablet, the cover has frequently opened. This only concerns me because of the vulnerability it creates in the defense of the screen.
My second issue is that the only thing keeping the tablet in the case is a flap that folds under the tablet inside of the back of the case. Because there is no snap or other "holding" mechanism, the weight of the tablet can cause the tablet to shift. This isnt so much a safety concern - the tablet hasn't even come close to falling out; however it does create usage issues as the shifting can make accessing controls difficult, especially when trying to push and jold buttons such as the volume rocker and power button. The fact that the flap faces down when using the stand aspect of the case exacerbates this problem.
My final issue with the case is probably much more individual to me than the others because it deals with the weight and somewhat awkwardness of holding the tablet while in this case. The case isn't exceptionally heavy but when combined with the style of the case, it can become tiresome to hold and difficult to work with. I appreciate the functionality of the book style, but when I'm trying to use the virtual keyboard in the horizontal orientation, it gets cumbersome. However, I believe this issue bothers me more because I have pain issues with my left wrist (I primarily use my left hand to hold he tablet and my right to control the tablet except when typing i horizontal orientation) and the position this case forces me the hold my hand (versus without the case) causes this wrist issue to flare up. So, as I said, this is most likely an issue for me because of my wrist.
All that being said, I still love the case. It has done a pretty good job of protecting my tablet, which is very important to me because I am a klutz and have (unfortunately) dropped my tablet a couple of times. Despite these drops, however, my tablet is still in practically perfect condition thanks to the protection of this case. Also, the stand on the case works pretty well. It's not exceptionally sturdy or anything, but it does hold the tablet up so long as you are very light when using the touchscreen.
Overall, I definitely do not regret making this purchase at all.
(End note: I can't really comment on the screen protector becuase I am horrible at applying them and messed up mine, so it didnt last more than 5 minutes on my tablet)
