Cheap... – Protective PU Leather Case for Blackberry PlayBook - Black Reviews

posted by gord888 on 10/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- It looks ok from afar
- The Playbook is strapped in tightly and protected from light bumps and scratches
- Since it's relatively inexpensive and polyurethane, you can beat it up without much worry.
- Camera hole lines up nicely so it doesn't bugger up your photos
- 3 positions to hold your playbook: flat, low angle and steep angle.
Cons:
- As the other reviewer said, it uses 4 straps in the corners to keep it in place. That bugs me a little since the playbook shifts a little bit as you use it.
- Quality is mediocre at best, but since it's under $10 - you get what you pay for.
Other:
- Durability is questionable - water tends to wipe off easily, but the material is thin and will most likely wear quickly
- It smells like plastic when you get it... but the smell will go away in a week or so
Bottomline:
$10... just get it. This is the cheapest case on the market. The next step up costs more than 4.5x more.
