Case worked well for as long as I used my Venue. Made it seem like a mini-laptop. I liked the ease with which it propped up, made it easy to carry, and protected my tablet (after a couple of years, I bought a laptop). Battery life was great. The ESC key popped off a few times until I ultimately lost it. The edges wore off after years of use. It also has a pen holder right below the screen (great for a stylus).
