It's a shame the cases add so much bulk to an already big tablet. It makes the decision quite a bit more difficult..

Not quite, it's actually psychological.
I'll explain. I'm usually quite careful with my devices (lot of vital things on it.). I have never
dropped a device out of clumsiness. (Which is not to say one has never been dropped. My old HD2 is still occupying the bottom of the Krimmler falls. Don't ask.)
My Note 3 is the first phone to have a case. In the first 4 months I had the phone, it had no case and never dropped. In the time since I put an Otterbox on it, It's dropped 8 times. Not because the case makes it less easy to handle (it actually makes it easier to hold and less slippery). But because I became a little more nonchalant with it. Because I knew it could survive the drop. I now find myself putting it on my knee, and shrugging if it falls off. It's quite disconcerting!
