I still have not decided if I should wait for my case to completely crack or get another one. It is still trucking along for now.

Two things. I see the price has gone up a bit done your post, then again what hasn't? The date of your initial review was August, so you got your first crack after 4 months? That's week daily use, i.e. off on weekends?

That's the reason why I opted for the official case after my last smart cover cracked on its own without having been dropped at all.

I used mine daily. Most weekends it was left in. I rarely used my poetic case. I would like to point out that my case went through hell and back in my pocket. I would like to speculate that I caused the cracks but based on everyone else getting cracks to I do not think that is the case.

Mine only cracked once since I've had it. I use it daily and the crack hasn't gotten any bigger since it first happened. It's my driver, and I see no reason to get a new one.

Ebay case
Hello, there is also another standard "Ebay case" its like leather (not plastic or tpu)but only has 1 magnet in it and uses a little stick out thing to make a stand. it always falls over and it actually damaged a tiny tiny piece of my nexus 7 about 5mm in the corner of my tablet.
i actually managed to get hold of a grey travel cover by asus for 20 as most ebay cases suck. the only thing GOOD about the 10 ebay case was the stylus and screen protector. but i failed to get the screen protector on, and it went in the bin.

Just an update my case ( with a small crack ) is still trucking along just fine. I am still using it daily.

Mine has cracked now too, lol!
Its weird as it is not near any of the connector cutouts but it is on the corner.
Have superglued it for the time being.

Might order a branded one that I like the look of, seems similar in thinness.
