This case is well priced and looks good, but I cannot recommend it to others. It renders the wonderfull playbook a chore to use which is unfortunate. I have already started looking for an alternate case and I've only had this one for half a day!
I also purchased the BB charging dock shortly after because it was a "on sale" at a bargain price on Amazon (under $20).
A problem with the charging dock is that neither of my protective cases could be used on the PB when using the dock.
At $6 incl shipping, I didn't feel bad about cutting a notch out of the non-hinged edge of the eForCity case so that the PB would fit into the groove on the charging dock. Since I wouldn't be using any of the PB's cameras, the PB could be inserted into the case upside-down to its intended orientation so that the cover flap can be closed over the PB when not in use, sitting in the charging dock.
(I would have given it 5 stars but I couldn't bring myself to say that I "loved" a protective case for a tablet.)
Voila! Great BB OEM charging dock + effective protective case for under $25 all-in, delivered ... less than half the cost of a protective case-only at most other stores.
I just noticed that some people are complaining that the retaining bezel on the case obscures the edges of the PB's touchscreen so that some of the swiping functions are not accessible. My guess is that this issue would be easily solved with a pair of good scissors -- simply cut out notches in the bezel where desired.
Review (update: 16/12/2014)
After 2 years, the cover is still going strong. So far NO scratches, dents or ripping. I tried the angle stand after my original review and it is the best part of this product. I was afraid of dents but it was just my fear, there're no dents and the cover is most helpful in all the aspects you could imagine. I'd no problem in using camera or charging as you have to open the flap to put the charger in the slot. If you're planning on buying it then just go ahead, you won't regret.
However, the Playbook cannot be properly controlled when placed inside this case, as the screen cutout is too small by about 2cm or so (vertically & horizontally) to allow the Playbook's swipe functions, which require the user to swipe from the screen's edge, to work properly. The Playbook must be removed from this case in order to be used fully, which is rather disappointing.
If the manufacturer had properly sized the screen opening specifically for the Playbook, this would be an excellent product for the price; as it is, it is merely: OK.
