Good value for the price, some minor issues. – Protective PU Leather Case for Google Nexus 7 - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Thin, fits well the Nexus 7, holes are at the right places to fit buttons, sockets and speakers. Has a magnet to put the Nexus 7 to sleep when the cover is over the screen. Good price. Looks like a nice quality case. Sturdy.
Cons:
When using the three-parts cover to make the Nexus 7 stand by itself, the cover surface is too slippery the Nexus 7 falls flat. The magnet is too strong and when the cover is on the back of the Nexus 7, the device goes to sleep.
Other:
You can alleviate the magnet issue by placing a 'shield' on top of it. You can use a quarter coin for instance. That way, the screen won't go to sleep when using the cover on the back of the device.
Bottomline:
Good value for the price if you can overlook the magnet issue and the difficulty for the device to stay in a standing position.
