[Review] RooCase Slim Fit Folio Case
**Edit** Follow Up Added
First let me start this off with stating something very important. This case, while originally being marked for the TF700, is actually for the Prime.
The seller, PC Micro Store
is an awesome seller who stands behind their sales. When I contacted after purchasing letting them know the company says it won't fit, they immediately offered a refund and to send a return label. I said I'd wait until I got it and see how it fit and if it was usable.
So I got the case in today. It is titled "rooCASE Slim-Fit (Black) Folio Case Cover with Multi Adjustable Viewing Angles for ASUS Transformer Pad PRIME TF201" now after the change. The vendor shipped it incredibly fast, I got it 2 days ofter items shipped straight from Amazon, pretty good. It was packaged in a plain brown envelope via USPS. It cost $15 + $5 S/H, but seems price may have gone up a few bucks.
Inside was no padding, but none is needed. It was a pretty clear package.
The case actually snapped in rather easily considering going into it the case was a bit small. I've had other cases that had to have alot more effort to put on. Because the case clips on the corner, it has a far sleeker "barely there" look and feel to it. The case is designed to cling onto 6 points as seen in the first photo. 4 of which are primary and two are secondary. The secondary are the ones made to pop on and off easily to facilitate in the converting to a stand. The primary are made to keep the case on. The secondary do not cling well, barely holding on. The only other fault I can find with the case after an afternoon/evening of using it is the closuire clip is a bit snug since the tablet is slightly bigger, but I'm confident that this will self remedy as it breaks in. The case has a hand strap that is very handy. It has 3 positions that give a good range of angles. All in all, I would be more then happy to pay $25-$35 without hesitation for this case assuming nothing comes up in the future. The thread is all the same color as the material (black and grey), flash makes it look white on black.
I've been using this case for over a week or so and it has proven to be ideal. There is very little to find that would be a "complaint". The only thing that I have been inconvienced by is the location of the charge port, but this has nothing to do with the case and only the phone. One of the roto cases would fix this by having a second option to set up on a desk. This is a case and not a dock, so I cant place a bit of fault for this. The closure tabe was a bit (very!) tight at first but has since become easy to close with a pinch of two fingers. The case has broken in to fit as if it really was made for this device. I love it and highly recommend it. I have become a case junky over the years and never expect the first case I buy to fit properly or to be happy with it, especially when only a couple cases exsist and not even built specifically for this device. So I still find myself wanting to try other cases, but am happy till I find that "ohh gotta have!" case, perhaps a gumdrop or other non book like case, more of a survival case.

It drives me nuts when people beg for "thanks", if you agree hit "Thanks".
