This cover holds the tablet securely and protects the screen when it is closed. All of the tablet controls are easily accessible while it is in the case. The case looks great, almost like you are holding a slim book. This case is not designed to provide shock protection in the event of drops or bumps, but protects well against wear and tear from everyday scratches and scrapes. I have two minor problems with the case that keep me from giving it a 5 star rating. It is hard to hold the case open and take pictures because when the front of the case is fully open it blocks the camera. Also the case will prop up the tablet in a landscape position, but not in a portrait position.
