On the other hand I'd rather not find out in a few days that I have managed to do permanent damage to the note's digitizer or something to that effect?
Heard stories regarding other cases with magnets and potential long term risks.
Even the official Samsung case has strong magnets. I've been reading the forums since December and nobody has reported long term damage as a result of a cheap case. If yours has an issue, you'll notice it fairly soon (screen refusing to sleep, auto brightness issues, areas of the screen that are difficult to write on etc.) First thing to try when something goes wonky is remove the case and see if it makes a difference. If you don't notice anything amiss, pat yourself on the back for finding a cheap case that works just as well as an expensive one.
