Unfortunately, i havent received the item yet after 2 weeks of waiting. Im having a very bad experience wit them right now. 3 days after i ordered i made a followup, they told me that they had just processed and shipped my order. I was thinking if i hadnt emailed them, they wouldve neglected my order. Anyway, benefit of the doubt, fine. I waited 10 days nothing was happening on the tracking number. I emailed again earlier to followup and voila! The shiiping just started! What the hell is wrong with those people!
I have to say that, although this case initially may feel kinda cheap, I love it (the chemical smell goes away in a few days). It ads surprisingly little bulk to the tablet, and makes it EASIER to hold on to. When this case is on, I feel much less like I am going to drop it.
The other thing that they do not mention, that they should, IMHO, is the two magnets keeping the case closed. Very nice touch. Also, The velcro under-flap that keeps the tablet inside the case is surprisingly secure feeling.[COLOR="Silver"]

One more thing I wanted to mention....
I bought this case near the beginning of an extended trip out of town. I quickly realized I needed a case for this, so ordered the Poetic case using the link that khel26 included. A couple days later I realized I had shipped it to my home address, which I would not be at for close to a month.
I contacted Exact Deals, who sells this via Amazon, and told them the truth, and acknowledged that, being shipped via First Class USPS, there was no way to redirect or call back the original shipment.
I asked if I could, instead, order an additional one (shipped to the correct address where I would be for the next month), and then ship back the one sent to my NYC address when I get back home there in late January to early February.
A couple hours later, I got back the nicest reply from them:
> Yes, that's totally fine. Please send it back to:
> RMA# X-XXXXXX-X
> Exact Design Inc
> 1661 XXXXXXXXX St, Unit XX
> San Francisco, CA XXXXX
> No worries. We'll be awaiting the case for a refund. Thanks.
> If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know.
> Alex from Exactdeal
I really appreciated how quickly he got back to me, and his relaxed,"no problem" customer service attitude.

I'd really like a case (preferably a folio)
that does a good job of holding it upright in portrait mode
. I saw the one with the strange circle on the back, but it looks a bit cheap, and like it doesn't protect the edges terribly
well, nor does it appear to keep the tablet all that securely in place.
