That Poetic Slimline case is total crap! The cover is messed up and won't stay flat.

Tried on my tablet and it damaged N7 bezel. It a small but deep scratch not that big of deal but still case should protect not put marks on it.

Wow dude, sorry to hear that! I don't have the issues you do. Mine fits great and my grouper has not a scratch on it after several drops.
I hope you can still return it, it looks like a defective one.
The cover wont cover the front perfectly lined up all the time, but that is due to a change in the manufacturing that customers asked for to allow the cover to fold flat against the back.
The not closing all the way, and the mark left by the case are total defects and they ought to take it back. Poetic has been trying really hard to make their customers happy with this case (as opposed to some manufacturers that don't take customer feedback into account). Hopefully they will work with you.

EDIT:
What's up with the last picture not matching the one two-back? You say it doesn't close all the way, and that last pic looks like you're trying to illustrate that, but two photos above that the same und of the device has it closed all the way?

Last picture shows what happens when i try to straighten bottom part to upper part. Well it doesn't matter.. I wrote them they should send me a replacement or similar case... I don't really wanna deal with return. They usually don't ask to send defective unit back.

Though I do really like mine, and I usually buy a backup for this kind of thing when I really like it (it WILL die eventually), I have considered getting the Nilkin which looks almost identical, but real leather.

the only thing with it, is I hear delivery time can be up to 3 months
and I haven't seen any documentation in english that says it has the sleep/ wake magnet.

Good luck. I hope it all works out for you.

I think these parts should be polished to make them smooth. Those are too sharp.

Use your head. That will just get me 20 links to cases that are slim OR cheap. I need something more qualitative. Which is why I am asking for experience. Not a slew of links.

Agreed, the cover is awful. It won't stay flat once used as a stand for some time.

Man, I feel bad for you two. My poetic lies flat even after using as a stand, and hasn't caused a single mark on my nexus. If anything, it has saved many. I've dropped my grouper half a dozen times on hard wood and pavement, and even the case still looks good.

I would love to hear someone that has experience with the nilkin version chime in.

Just chiming in about the case I pointed to above. This is a pretty nice little cover. It has a wake-lock magnet and comes with a stylus too. It had a very snug snap in fit but that's probably a good thing as cases tend to loosen up over time. I didn't have any of the popping off of one corner issues that other reviewers seemed to complain about. This thing is pretty decent quality and would be well worth $20. It has some soft material inside the shell and under the flap cover to keep from scratches. I wish it had 2 positions to prop it up but that's no biggie. YRMV of course, but you really cant go wrong with this thing for how inexpensive it is.

Everyone,

I purchased the blurex ultra slim and every time I flip the flap around to the back, it puts the N7 to sleep. I read that it shouldn't do this. I thought maybe I received a defective one, so I had Amazon send me a new one. Same thing with the new one.

Is anyone else having any issues with flipping the flap back and putting their N7 to sleep? Anything I can do to help it "behave".

Thanks

The case I have had that issue before I had it replaced. Chances are the magnet is too strong

Thanks. Mine hasn't damaged the N7 which is something.

I actually received 3 Poetic cases (only paid for one) because of the faulty magnets issue although all of mine seemed fine.

I've just butchered one and cut the back plate in half length ways around half way up to make a nice desk stand that the N7 just sits on.

$20 is as high as I would go for a case. I would like to find an alternative to my Poetic, for no reason other than I get bored. The problem is: it has to be slim, have a wake/sleep screen cover, and have at least a couple options for how to rest the device for use (including lying flat/ able to hold it in my hands without a flap hanging out or bunched up in a wacky way).
The only case I can find that fits this description is my Poetic. Guess I started off with the perfect case for me.
I came close to buying the Blurex Ultra-Slim, but I don't like the idea of having to "Pop" half the tab out of the case to use the stand feature and it doesn't look very slim to me. Not to mention there is virtually no protection if you drop it on its corner.
Same story with the i-Blason.
Almost there, but I can't stand the gray plastic on the IVSO brand cases, but they look sweet otherwise.

The Poetics are like $12 now too. I'll probably just get another one of those as a backup since it really is the perfect one IMO.

I've had the iBlason since I got my N7 in November. True, it doesn't offer much do protection, but what slim case does? I've been very happy with my case so far. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

ok.. i got the same one. it came in last week. fast delivery.

and mine had the know issue of.. one corner popping out!!!!!

for the price.. Under $7 with shipping. it had good feel to it. and i wanted to keep it...so i looked a little closer to the issue.

i seemed to me that it was just a little off. the edge was just slightly to short to get above the rim and secure itself. there is a soft cloth lining inside to help protect it. i cut and removed a small section (less than 1inch x 1inch) of this cloth in the corners that gave me trouble. this gave it just enough depth so that the rim can reach up over the sides and snap on. it worked!!!
now it is a snug fit.

the cover has a magnet in it.. so that opening and closing the flap, turns on and off the nexus 7. the texture of the surface gives it a good grip.

the top cover can be folded to prop the screen up. 2 positions.

it also comes with a stylus. it has a built-in pen so that you can write on paper surfaces. i have other cheap stylus to and they suck.. skips across the screen as i try to draw a line. the stylus what came with this cover is much better. it keeps a good contact with the screen as it slides smoothly across the glass.. giving you a good solid line.

for the price... i give it 5 out of 5 stars. a must buy!

Seriously, looking for an under $10 case for a Nexus 7??? Why not use a large sock? Mine goes everywhere and is a work and communication tool, reader, entertainment center, etc. A pretty valuable device for $200 IMO. For as little as $15 you can find some pretty nice cases. I use the i-BLASON Auto Sleep / Wake Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet 100% Genuine Leather Case Cover found on Amazon for $14.95.

I don't know about you, but I do drop things accidentally including my N7. Beware of those thin "fold up into stand" type cases which offer minimal protection. I was using one, and my N7 got a small dent in a corner after a drop on the tile floor; luckily no crack in the screen. My current $15 case is well padded and covers all surfaces and edges. Whatever case you choose, make fit and padding a priority. My .02

If anyone in the UK is interested in the Seidio Active case, Ebay retailer oemcell has a couple for sale.

Purple

White

You can get them directly from Seidio, but they're about £15 more to ship than on eBay.

For some cardboard, felt, and vinyl, $7 is the right price.
My $7 case arrived today, and I am very satisfied.
It does not add any bulk to the N7.
I do not understand why it has a giant hole in the back.

Sorry,couldn't help it.
What color did you get? I'm guessing gray. Or grey?
Is it seriously cardboard?

That is exactly why my username is what it is, with respect to tech products!
Yes, grey. I'm not sure what it is made out of. It does the job.

I thought for sure it was for the Cyndi Lauper song "The Goonies R' Good Enough".

The case itself is felt lined plastic but the cover is flexible and it feels like cardboard inside the vinyl.

This thread has been very useful for deciding on a case and in the end I chose the Moko Slim-fit cover. I can't really fault the thing at the moment and it's a case I'd recommend for £12.99 (comes in different colours too). I know it's going to take a battering in my bag though, so now I'm looking for a neoprene sleeve as a 2nd line of protection.

So are there any iPad-like smart COVERS for the Nexus 7? I do a Google search for nexus 7 'smart cover' and all I get back are cases

Does anyone use the otterbox for this tablet? I'm thinking about getting one and I want to know your opinions. Thanks
