#1 and most annoying - The edges slip off when I pick it up. The corners are on tightly, but the edges easily lift up and slip around when holding it. If the silicone had a little more grip or wrapped around a little farther, it might help with this.
#2 - The silicone is actually pretty slick. Most of the rubber skins I have had over the years were very tacky (sticky) and had excellent grip. This one actually tends to slip out of my hands when holding it.
#3 - The hole for the headphone jack isn't large enough for the plug on my earbuds. The plastic around the plug isn't overly large and are pretty standard as far as I'm concerned. Unfortunately, I will need to trim it out to make it fit properly.
#4 - The microphone hole is not lined up properly. I don't use it often, so not a big issue for me, but still annoying. I have tried stretching the case around to get it to stay, but it's not going to happen.
I would have liked it if there was not a cutout for the SD card slot because I put a 16GB card in once and doubt I will ever take it out again. The smooth lines of the edges are interrupted by this cutout and the power adapter on the bottom. The volume and power buttons are covered by the case but there are raised "buttons" on the case so you can still feel where they are and use them easily.
The case does feel to smooth sometimes which is weird for rubber. Maybe if the graph squares were a little smaller it would feel "grippier" to your fingers.
Some added clarifications that may not be in the product details: There is a rectangular cut-out located for the speaker in the back of the Nook HD+ tablet. There are accurately shapes openings also for the charger and the audio plug. Also, there are buttons that are molded into the edge of silicone case for the tablet buttons (up/down volume and power/sleep). These work just fine - the functions operate very readily by pushing the button on the silicone the force is transmitted through to the actual button on the tablet.
So, if this is the type of case that you are looking for you should be pleased. But, don't expect it to magically give thte type of protection a tablet would have from a larger, full coverage, folding case.
I paired with another cover - slid in well and had a front that closed to make the perfect (hopefully bounceable) tablet cover.
Thinking about this, I will change my installation procedure. The corner that tore was at the large speaker cut-out on the back face. There is very little material on the case sides there. What little is there is weakened by the decorative slots, and this is where the separation occurred. So in the future I wall fit the corners on the speaker end first (the end where the Nook Home button is). Then the more robust corners on the other end can be safely fitted.
While I'm writing I should mention that with the case in place it is practically impossible to install or remove the microSD card. The fragile end of the case must be removed from the Nook to do this. I recommend removing the case entirely for microSD card maneuvers, and then doing a gentle re-install as mentioned above.
