    Thanks for sharing. Going to order this instead of getting the Acer one.

    It doesn't look like the Acer-branded case reviews very well, so I avoided it.
    I've been carrying mine in an old DVD player slip case, which actually works great for what it is, but doesn't let me prop the thing up.

    (All this great technology and only HTC thinks to build in a kickstand? That's puzzling, but perhaps best discussed in another topic.)

    This thing is quite nice!

    Real leather (love the smell) and the workmanship is superb.

    The leather is great with no flaws anywhere and the stitching is all straight.

    All ports are completely accessible, as are the cameras and light sensor.

    A wrap-around Velcro flap on the bottom secures the tablet nicely into the case in a perfect fit with no wiggle room at all when secured.

    Right out of the package there is very little stiffness to the new leather, allowing the cover to fold back flat for very comfortable holding and use.
    Magnets securely hold the cover closed.

    Velcro pads allow an extreme range of viewing angles in landscape mode, with enough of a "front porch" sticking out at a very upright angle to nicely rest my Bluetooth keyboard.

    The case is supportive and stable when placed on a table in portrait mode, and holding the tablet like a book is completely natural feeling.

    Overall I'm very highly satisfied with this purchase, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality leather case that looks great and is well engineered and manufactured. :cool:

    Been looking at this one too. I'm waiting for the slim case to be available at the end of the month. Can you post some pics to see how much bulk it adds?

    I don't really plan on taking any pics, but I can tell you that my case is almost exactly one inch thick with my A500 installed.
    I didn't think to mention the added size because I was too blown away by the utility and coolness to notice! :eek:

    LAME! Amazon has the leather Roocase available for Prime for every brand of tablet except Acer.

    Mine came yesterday. I looked through every option and thought it was the best choice overall. And I have to agree 100% with everything said above by strider_mt2k. It's great. So many angles, well constructed, well designed, excellent materials for the money, get it now before the price goes up.

    That looks great! It's very similar to PD-Air's version 2 book style case, the one I have, but a whole lot less expensive. If you want a convenient stand, a way to hold the tablet more easily, as well as some screen and drop protection, this would be a fine choice for a case. I hated Acer's cheesy official rubber case.

    Ok you guys convinced me. I just ordered it.

    I've become increasingly unhappy with my Acer branded case.
    The price is right so I'm going to get it before the shortage drives the price up.

    One reservation i have is the usability in portrait mode. I use my tablet a lot in portrait for reading and none of these case makers seem to understand that.

    DRAT: I wasn't quick enough to beat the shortage:


    Amazon just informed me:
