If this review reads like the one I did for the Belkin Ultrathin Folio Case, that's because the cases are almost identical in design. I have a couple of different cases for my Tab. Some have little corner clips, others use entire pockets tohold the Tab in place. This model uses a pocket. The Tab tucks inside - very snugly. You'll have to do some pressing and tugging to make sure things align correctly, especially the rear camera lens. The cutout for the lens is plenty big - you have to make sure the Tab is all the way in. That takes some pressing and pushing.
Once the tab is inserted, it'a not going anywhere - it's actually very difficult to remove. The case uses the typical stand style found on every case. I found that it's more "grippy" than others, and the Tab stays upright nicely. The flap that covers the bottom of the Tab and the back of the pocket both "grip" the base.
Now the bad points: As with every Tab case I have seen, the charger can't be used while using the case as a stand. This is the second case I have seen where the cover has to actually be open to charge the Tab while not in use - both were Belkin (many other cases have a cut-out for the charging port.) This could be a good point if you look at it from a level of protection - the port is covered and protected during transport, but from a point of convenience, it's a pain.
There are cut-outs where none are needed, making me think that this same case can be used for other tablets. One of these is right by the left hinge point of the case - I can see this tearing pretty quick.
The way the case is held closed - an elastic strap. Others use a clip or magnet. Belkin went with this strap on their models. I hate that, and it's the main reason I took off a star. My first impression was "cheesy."
The leather frame extends past the edges, offering an extra degree of protection from short drops and bumps.
The frame on the case covers the speakers, cutting the volume considerably. If you use headphones, that's no biggie - but I like the speakers.
For weight/size ratio, the protection is great. The extended rubber coated seams add an extra level of buffering for short drops - kind of like a cushioned crumple-zone. Dropping this case onto a corner from waist height would probably protect the Tab, although I'm not going to try it! My leather case uses corner clips - no way I would trust that on even a 1 foot drop!
This case also looks great - it looks more like a book than a tablet. The downside is that you're more than doubling the thickness of the Tab.
The case design (cut-outs, strap, pocket) are almost identical to the Belkin Ultrathin Folio Case, except the Ultrathin is much slimmer.
