The Playbook fits nicely in this case with access to the ports at the bottom (or left side of the case if you are holding it like a book) and it is molded around the power and volume buttons. You also have two sets of grooves on the inside cover to hold the Playbook up at different angles.

On the plus side, the Playbook fits nicely, it is small (or at least doesn't add a lot of bulk to the Playbook and gives it a nice book feeling to it in carrying it around.

On the downside, while it may likely be due to the poor power button design on the Playbook, the molded power button doesn't work so you have to lift up the plastic molding to push the power button. It isn't a big deal since I rarely have to turn it on so I can live with that. (It might work better for others who have a more raised power button than mine). Also, I don't find the grooves to be indented or deep enough. I would have preferred something deeper in the hopes it would give more stability. My third critique is that while I understand the Playbook has to fit in the way it does with the bottom ports facing the spine of the 'book', I always seem to want to put it 'upside down' in landscape mode. It doesn't really matter since the screen will flip anyways but still.

That's about it. I would buy it if you can get it on sale but I wouldn't pay full price for it.

Arrived very quickly. The case fits the Blackberry Playbook perfectly and even allows the camera to work with the case attached. It does add some weight to the product as a whole, but knowing you have the added protection of a very sturdy leather case does offer some relief as to any possible damage to your unit. Price was better than BB and FS, at least at the time I purchased it.

This blackberry OEM case is the perfect one for your playbook. This case is not bulky and fits perfect. The ON-OFF button now works much better. During charging battery the case needs to be open but this may help to lower temperature. I strongly recommend it if you want to protect your investment.

Got this case primarily because I wanted to have a case that folded so I could 'prop up' the Playbook when showing clients something on the screen. Second, I wanted a very thin case that hugged the device and wasn't 'bulky'. This case is exactly it.

It's branded with the RIM Blackberry logo on it, and the material is really really nice, a rubbery texture that is a great grip. Plus it is so thin you barely notice the case on it! The cover goes over the screen which is great to stop scratches and protects the screen. When you have this case closed and hold the Playbook in your hand it feels like a small moleskin notebook. Super nice!

The BIGGEST PLUS to this case is that they really thoughout out the buttons really well, especially the POWER button! The playbook has a very tiny tiny power button that's awkward to press. With this case, there is a nice, LARGER rubber power button that 'pops out' from the case edge that makes it really easy to push the power button in! That alone is worth buying this case for.

BUY IT! You wont be disappointed!

This case is perfect for my BlackBerry Playbook. It's not bulky at all and I like that it folds into a 'stand' position. Great protective case for the Playbook.

I bought one of the cheaper cases on EBay first although I really wanted a leather one. The case that I bought fit the playbook perfectly and had all of the required cut outs. The main problem was closing down apps. The case covered most of the black bezel all around the screen so that I could not swipe from the bottom to close apps. The OEM case remedies that problem. I don't mind charging with the case open since I had to remove it from the case completely to charge on the charging pod with the $7 case.
To those who find the on/off button inconvenient, Simply tap on the battery icon at the top right of the screen and you will be presented with 3 choices to shut down. If you choose standby,a swipe across the screen starts the unit immediately.

The BlackBerry Playbook Leather Convertible Case is a great product overall i'm very happy with it. There is however one flaw or bothersome problem because your playbook is meant to fit into the case and be left inside there is an extension for the power button which i have found to be somewhat difficult to use. You must press down extremely hard on the power button (extension) to turn your playbook on & off there are times i peal back that part of the case to just use the real power button (when i just can't seem to get it turned on or off with the case on).

It works better than I thought. Although the product photos do not show, the cover can be flipped backward. However, the case is not exactly light, probably because of using leather.
