Great product – Lychee Pattern Protective PU Leather Case for Samsung Galaxy Note N8000 - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Fits the Samsung GT-N8000/N8010 perfectly. Stitching and plastic housing seem quite sturdy. Housing fits around the edge of the tablet offering an undisturbed view of the screen when the case is open. All ports of the tablet and the S-pen slot aren't obstructed by the case when open. Power and volume buttons are usable when closed. Magnetic clasp attaches to the rear of the case for usage while reclining
Cons:
No hole for charging port on the spine, need to have the case open when charging or when using a USB device. Charging port also blocked when in 'stand' mode. Magnetic clasp can sometimes get in the way of camera lens when taking a picture or using the torch function Magnetic clasp had some scratches on it when it was taken out of the package, but otherwise fine.
Other:
When setting up the case in 'stand' mode I found that the inside of the front cover wasn't very grippy and the leather backing at the rear can make the tablet sway from side to side when pushed from the front. You may want to attach some non-slip pads at the bottom of the plastic housing to stop slipping, but when positioned just before the first 'bump' from the inside of the case it is sturdy enough for typing as-is.
Bottomline:
For the price it is a great case, while you can get cheaper units such as SKU155670 with a spine charging port I prefer the build quality of this unit despite having to keep it open when charging.
