    I've been all over amazon reading reviews on cases for this tablet. I want something that looks nice and turns into a stand so I can read anything on my tablet while I work. The two main cases that I'm intrigued by are the Poetic slimline case and the Moko slimfit case. Does anyone here have one of these cases? I really can't decide which I want. I also want to make sure I have access to all of my ports while the case is on. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

    I think that you will enjoy the note 2014. There have been several recent threads on cases, here are two. Do a search for "case" or search for specific brands on this GN 10.1 2014 forum.

    This is the case I have, I have the same one (proper fit of course) for my Tab 3, I love the way it looks and feels, it has correct openings for ports, and stands well. Its also well priced. It has magnets where they dont get in the way of any functions and comes in lots of colors. I have Navy for both my tablets and had it for my previous tablet, and Acer Iconia a500

    First, ask yourself what you want: a nice, light case that works well with the smart cover feature and provides modest protection for simple things for the screen? Or some serious armor?

    In any event, see this thread:

    Poetic: Perfect Case for the GN 2014

    Personally, at this point, I still like the Poetic. It is a nice case, slim and well designed, quality build. But if I had to do it over again, I might well try the Roo case mentioned.

    I love the description:
    Enjoy lightweight protection against daily wear and tear with the featherŪ case for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Adding less than 1mm to the rear of the device, the featherŪ case provides...

    daily wear and tear ? as in typing and swiping lol
    How about drop protection as a cool feature ?

    MyNameIsMattyK: If you bought this through the Groupon deal, then I don't think you can buy Square Trade Accidental Drop protection as it is a refurbished tablet. If you bought it new from somewhere else, then don't hesitate... buy the warranty. This tablet is a china doll and you have to be extremely careful ALL the time until a real (surely thick and ugly) protective case is made for it. All of these other cases are nothing more than stands... just buy one that is mentioned in these threads or you might end up with one that has magnet issues that will affect writing abilities. Just about every poster that mentioned a shattered screen had a protective case on their tablet and it never survived a "soft drop". Another option is to install really thick, plush wall to wall carpeting at home

    I'm very careful with all of my devices so I'm not concerned about protection. I want something that will also convert into a stand for reading and surfing the Web. I'm leaning towards the Poetic Slim but my question is: does it come with a stand built in? The picture on amazon shows it but the description doesn't.

    I just realized that the Samsung book cover is the only cover that does not cover the bottom edge of tablet. This allows their cover to be compatible with the Samsung tablet dock. All the OEM book covers only have a small opening at the charging port
    I found that Amazon is selling the Samsung brand book cover for $40.84 shipped.

    I've been looking at cases today and wonder how you take a photo with the Samsung Book Cover on?

    Do you have to hold the Note 10.1 upside down so that the flap hangs below?

    I have decided on the Poetic Slimline. I would have preferred one like the NewTrent one I had on my iPd with a leather hand strap. That felt SO secure in use.

    A Spigen one like my Note 3 has would have been nice in matching Yellow. Oh well. I can always get a new one when more options are available.

    Yes, there is a stand built in, although for landscape viewing only.In the thread I cited above, some have noted that other cases have them for both. Depends on what you need. Not a big issue for me. Your mileage may differ.

    Basically the front cover is a tri-fold. You open it, flip it back and just fold it to where it forms a support ridge, and then supports the tablet in landscape mode. It's easier to do than talk about.

    I am finding this out, most likely if you don't already know, you will find this out too.

    It seems for these very popular tablets and smartphones, it seems everybody, and I mean everybody gets multiple cases for their phone and tablet!!

    I just ordered two more cases for the GN 2014..Also, with so many choices of cases, I mean, we can almost get a different case for each day of the week, a different case for what we are going to do that day, a different case because of where we are going that day.. the choices are endless, and the case makers are making sure we have a lot to chose from too. Don't feel bad if you buy a case, put it on one time, and decide you don't like it.. That's part of the game too.

    I am very happy with my poetic case I purchased from Amazon. .
    I'm pretty sure it was under $10.00

    Not sure if I had a Moko "slim"fit or not but it was a Moko. Didn't like it AT all. Cheap, smelly, had glue on it, inside that was against the screen wasn't soft and smooth, couldn't do the "swipe from side to side" for a screen capture. Cutout were less than optimal. Sent it back to Amazon for a full refund. Bought the Poetic. Couldn't be happier.

    I have the poetic and love it... Probably not an otterbox type protection but good enough for the screen and backing...

    I am hesitant to order the Poetic case that looks like the best fit. The last Poetic case I had fell apart and they refused to stand behind it. Not a fan of Poetic but the price/style quotient is hard to beat.

    I am in the same situation. I need a case that I can rotate from landscape to portrait for easy viewing. Do any of these cases do that?

    I have a brand new Poetic folio that is really nice, but has never been used. I'd be more than happy to ship it to anyone that's willing to pay the $10 for expedited shipping. I sold the tablet before I could use the case. PM me.

    I just bought a carrying case from TimBuk2 out of San Fran. custom made, guarantied for life, made of a heavy water proof canvas, and impact material inside. They call it an envelope carrying case. Fits my life style. I m not much for the book like type cases. Check them out TimBuk2.com

    I am using a Moko ultra slim case. This morning the tablet slipped off an eighteen inch high stool and hit the floor. As the tablet went splat, the case flew off in another direction. I picked that thing up with much trepidation and great relieve when I see that it was alright; but no more slim and beautiful case for me, I am looking for something that offers some kind of protection. Be warn.

    Do anyone have any experience with this case?
    .

    My other concern is that it do not offer a face closer. I have gotten so use to the feature that I would hate to be without it, but protection would rule.
