Pros: Light weight, solid construction and a perfect fit
This is a great product! The material is top notch, the fit is exact and very stylish. What is even better, was the ease of ordering and receiving the Kickstand. ShopCrackBerry.com is the place to go for getting the goods on time and at a very affordable rate.
I have been using this case for about 2 months now and my overall experience has been excellent.
The case does not add too much bulk to the overall unit. Although its essentially 3 layers (cover, cover, kickstand/PB holder) so the added bulk is expected. The playbook is held in place by sliding it underneath the "claws" which hold the PB at the little lip around the edge. there are 4 clips in total and are meant to be minimalist so that the bezel is entirely accessible.
The way the folder opens, you can hold the PB comfortably in your hand and still reach anywhere on the screen with your thumbs for typing or one handed use. (I have fairly average man hands).
The kickstand works by position it on the notches provided on the cover and works very well with multiple viewing angles.or folded over for angle-table mounted typing. A neat little trick I use to carry around my cleaning cloth is to slip it between the back cover and the kickstand-panel.
Lastly, the elastic that holds the folio closed when you are not using it is a simple yet effective solution to keep the flap closed.
The only drawback from the case is the "claw" like clips. I can see it easily bending out of shape or pulled to a point of breakage if you have small children. My case shipped with a slightly bent out of shape claw, but I just re-shaped it by applying slight pressure. its been perfect ever since.
I could go on, but most of it is self explanitory and Ive touched on some of the best features and the one drawback ive found based on my use
In conclusion, if you are looking for a sleek and discreet travel case that protects your playbook when you toss it in your bag/briefcase this is the one to get.
