Default note 10.1 case recommendations

I've recently purchased a case for my note 10.1. Its a gimmick five case from china. Its a really nice looking case and has a glue like material to hold the tablet in the case. Whilst its a nice case it also has quite a few magnets within the flaps, allowing it to stand upright for viewing and allows low for typing. However i believe that the magnets are causing the tablet to wake up intermittently, thus draining the battery. Does anyone have any good case recommendations?

Much appreciated

I have this case and like it a lot. It comes in other colors besides purple (black, blue, red, I think...) No way to stand up vertically, but you get two positions horizontally. So far, no complaints.

Does this case have a decent cutout for the S-pen slot? I've been looking for a case, but the ones I've seen you need to use a tool to get the pen out.

To be honest no not really. The SPen is hard to take out with this case. But I have an external stylus so I don't use the SPen

I have the Casecrown as well, love it. The pen becomes easier to get out after a while.

It's cut out on the top of the case, but not on the bottom, so you have to wriggle your finger a bit to catch the "lip" on the stylus and pull it out.

That said, I rarely put my stylus in all the way any more. I get it most of the way in, and the closed cover holds it secure. Much easier to fetch.

If I'm really taking the tablet someplace (like to work, from home, or on a plane or car trip) then I seat the stylus all the way in. But just moving it from room to room, having it 99% seated works fine and it's easier to retrieve.

some cases have little elastic loops sewn on them for the stylus, but I was worried they would stretch out and my stylus would be lost.

Phew! That turned out to be a long answer!

I currently use the official Galaxy Note 10.1 Book Cover. The fit and finish is top notched. The only drawback is when you use the camera, for some reason they placed a camera port on the back but not on the front sleeve cover. So your hands are a bit awkward trying to take a picture while holding the sleeve up to prevent it from covering the lense. Other than that, it's an excellent cover.So easy to place your tablet, you literally just have to drop your tablet in. =)

I have 2 of these covers. I loved the one I had for my tab so I got another one for my note. Can't beat the quality for the price. I also have a casecrown bag that holds my note, nook, and assorted chargers and such. Excellent quality.

Edit: I forgot to say the pen does come out easier once the cover is broken in. I don't even think about it anymore. The end of the pen is uncovered when the cover is folded back so it's easy to access.
