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.
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!
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.

Fits like a glove but the leather appears thinner than my original case bought from Blackberry. Still, it looks great and works great.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
