    Not Suitable for Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen

    I thought his folio was generally quite well-designed, and I liked the fact that it would support the tablet in both landscape and portrait orientation (many folios will only prop the tablet up in landscape orientation). One general drawback: there is no window for the tablet camera - if you want to use the camera on the tablet you have to remove it from the folio. There are two compatibility problems with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen: 1. The folio grips the tablet by the corners, and this blocks access to the S-Pen. This could be fixed with some re-shaping using a Dremel tool (or other similar small drill/cutter/grinder). I didn't bother because of problem #2. 2. The folio has embedded magnets to hold it closed, and these cause dead zones on the screen where the S-Pen will not register (see photo of S-Pen scribbling on the screen). Fortunately, the dead zones recover when the Tab A is removed from the folio. Bottom line: I think this folio would be fine on some other 10-inch tablets, but it's NOT a good choice for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen. Since I use the Tab A, the folio did not work well for me. I returned it to Best Buy, and received a refund with no argument & no delay (which is one of the reasons I shop there).

    Not for Kindle

    The case itself is a good product. It should do a good job of protecting your device, and the cover can be folded into a variety of positions. Your device is held in place by corner brackets attached to the cover by strong elastic stirrups, which stretch to potentially accommodate notebooks of slightly different dimensions. However, even though the 10 inch Amazon Kindle fits, this case is not a good choice for the device, because the corner piece cutouts do not align well with the volume buttons. Part of the bracket presses on both the volume up and volume down, so it is nearly impossible to adjust the volume to anything other than full volume or mute. Since I didn't want to risk breaking my Kindle by using it without a case and I didn't have time to shop for a different one, I kept this case but snipped the part that presses on the volume. Not a great solution--it eliminated the issue, but now one corner is not securely holding my Kindle, and the plastic pieces poke poke outward. I also don't like that closing the cover doesn't automatically put my device in sleep mode, but I don't know whether this is caused by the incompatibility of the case or if the Kindle is designed to stay on unless you press the power button to put it to sleep or turn it off. All that said, if your device control buttons align with this product, you would probably be pleased with this case.

    I paid full price for Insignia Flexible Folio Cover for 10 inch tablets to protect new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from damage. After a month of use I have decided to stick with this cover with no regrets over paying full price. Tablet is held securely by elastic straps. It can be used either in portrait or landscape mode. It is stable. Ports (except for camera lens) are easily accessed. At first I thought cover too large, but extra space around edges enable me to hold tablet without accidently touching screen. I can also hang tablet on stand at bedside to watch videos. Insignia flexible folio cover's appeal has grown through use. There is no camera lens opening (but it is generic 10 inch tablet cover anyway), and it does not automatically wake/sleep tablet on opening/closing (generic cover), but there are magnets built in to hold cover in position desired. Totally worth 5 stars for as a generic cover.

    Worst tablet I have ever used, don't bother

    I don't usually write reviews like this, but at any rate, here it goes: Don't bother buying this tablet. I bought 2 for my kids to use on our vacation, along with some SD cards for storage and cases. The tablets are so slow, they are unusable at times. Just logging into netflix (let alone watching something) takes several minutes where the tablet is unresponsive. I assumed there was an app causing slow performance, but resetting to factory settings does no good in speeding these up. I would have done better paying twice as much on an ipad, or at least something with a better processor. Insignia products have done me well in the past (mainly just some 32" led tv's for my kids), but I wouldn't bother with anything insignia after this. I don't expect tablet's this cheap to do everything (roblox, minecraft, etc might take a bit of processing), but movies, netflix, checking email via chrome, etc should work on any tablet, but those things complete strap the CPU of these tablets making it a waste of time. I saw they were an issue when we used them on our trip, but tried hanging with them after we returned (after all I wasnt going to take time from vacation to return them and my kids used them a lot while driving and whatnot), but now I wish I just returned them while on vacation. My kids use them every once in awhile, but only if the ipad is in use and they want to check something while waiting for their turn.

    Too time-consuming

    Posted

    This case is not designed for quick set-up. It requires a long flat surface to lay on just to open it, then the user has to pinch two sides of the cover and lift them while simultaneously lifting the back magnetic flap to tuck it under the tablet. This design might be fine for users who leave their tablet covers open in the stand position, but it is far too time-consuming for someone who wants to quickly access the tablet and then close the cover when done. Furthermore, the packaging of this case claims that users have two angles available in landscape mode, a viewing angle of about 45 degrees and a typing angle of about 15 degrees. There are no instructions for setting up the typing angle, and I do not see how that is an option. I bought this because it does allow portrait mode viewing. However, because of the time-consuming set-up, I stopped using this cover within a day and put my old cover back on. I will be returning it to Best Buy.

    I purchased my Samsung Note 10.1 in 2013 and purchased a protective case at that time. After 3 years the case was quite worn, so I purchased this as a replacement. This one is much more versatile than the first in regard to the options for standing the unit both horizontally and vertically. I am totally satisfied with this case with only one exception: there is no hole in the back of the case for the camera lens, so in order to use the table as a camera I would have to take it out of the case to do so. For me this is not an issue as I never use the camera feature anyway.

    I was looking for a case for my new HD 10 Fire/Kindle. I didn't care for the one specifically for the HD 10 that was in the store for 2 reasons. It appeared flimsy for the price and the only color choice was black. This Insignia case is very sturdy and priced reasonable. I didn't have my HD 10 tablet with me and unfortunately I have to return this because the cut outs are not right. It was very hard to get the HD 10 into the Insignia case also. I struggled to get the clips to secure each corner. Take your device with you to see if it fits and save yourself making a return. I ordered something online from Amazon that says the cutouts are accurate for my device. I hope so. Wish BB had more to choose from. I'd like to shop from my home town stores whenever possible.

    Best Case EVER

    My cat likes to knock down my tablet when I'm watching it in bed. He wants all my attention so he rubs his head on the corner until it falls down. This is the ONLY case I've ever used that doesn't let him do it! Because of the way you fold it, it's so much sturdier than a simple stand. It took a few minutes for me to figure out how to fold it but that is only because I thought it was complicated. Lol. It's NOT complicated! Anyway, I saw some negative reviews on here and I just wanted to set the record straight. This case protects your tablet every bit as much as other leather cases do and it doesn't fall down so easily. I've actually bought 3 of them... one for each of my tablets! Well worth the money.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6" - perfect fit

    Got this as part of a gift for my mother with the Galaxy Tab and it fits perfectly. Yes, it blocks the camera, but she hasn't used the camera (nothing that a perfectly cut hole in the back of this case wouldn't solve). Still 5-stars because for the price I couldn't go wrong to get her some basic protection for initial use until I could get a better case. I ended up not getting a better case since this works perfectly. Very versatile in making it into a kickstand in either portrait or landscape modes and offers good protection. Oh, and if you're worried about the clips that hold the device in place (like I was originally), no worries - you can shake this thing violently and they do not budge. So I'm certain it could take some drops and not have the tablet fall out.

    As a first time owner of a tablet, I definitely wanted a protective cover. The salesperson pointed out the covers available for my 10.5 inch tablet. I picked out the cover. The salesperson "loaded" the tablet in the carrier/cover. The only thing missing is a secure place to keep my wand, which I didn't realize I would want to use, in lieu of my fingers. After getting home with my new toy, I realized the cover could be folded in various positions. It takes some ingenuity to figure the 2 basics standing positions. Still trying to set the tablet in a portrait position. Not a problem for me, because mostly I hold the tablet in my hand.

    Not for the ASUS ZenPad 10

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I purchased this for my ASUS ZenPad Z300m but had to return it after the corner piece caused my tablet to reset three times. Because of the position of the corner straps, the power/sleep button or the volume buttons are constantly being pressed. If it's not the one, it's always the other. Also, the lower corner strap gets in the way of charging port. I had to remove that corner in order to properly charge the ZenPad 10, otherwise I was fearful it would put too much strain on the port causing the port to prematurely wear. If you don't have an ASUS ZenPad 10, give it a try; it may work well for you. But for me, it didn't play nicely so it had to go back.

      Thank your taking the time to review this case, I'm sorry that it didnt' quite fit your tablet, however I would like to mention about the 15 days of return policy from Best Buy, and you would only need your receipt and take it back to the store where it was purchased.

    I really like this case. It fits the tablet perfectly and I feel that it protects it very well. It is sturdy, yet flexible and so easy to work with. Another great feature was the price. I upgraded my tablet to one with the pen; and it works fine with it. I did not buy the Samsung case - and saved the $50 for the pen upgrade, by purchasing this case. Only drawback would be that you need to remove it from the tablet if you want to take a picture (other than a selfie) but I did not buy it for pictures anyway so this presents no problem for me. I really like the case; it works perfectly for me. Only change I would make is color: I would prefer black; but the color is so close that it is no big deal.

    Nice case for a tablet, but . . .

    The case is substantial enough to protect the tablet with the four interior tabs holding the tablet securely. The integrated stand is sturdy; the side buttons are all accessible. The case does exactly what it is supposed to do: it protects the tablet. However, althouth this may not be a huge issue for all users, the tablet must be completely removed from this case in order to access the tablet's camera. A more significant issue is that the upper right corner tab must be unfastened in order to remove or replace the Samsung Galaxy tablet S Pen. This quickly becomes an annoying problem and severely impacts the overall usefulness of the case. It is an issue that can be quite problematic for Samsung Galaxy tablet users.

    Clips cover buttons, No English Instructions

    Posted

    It's a functional case holder for 10 inch tablets. There are a few minor issues depending upon the tablet you are using and it's placement of buttons. For instance, I was using a Fire HD 10 tablet and with this holder the buttons end up being covered up by the clips to keep the tablet in place. Occasionally, the clips will push down on the volume buttons causing it to go up or down at random. Additionally, there was only Spanish instructions inside the box and the pictures don't really do much in the way of translation. I guess the saying goes, "You get what you pay for."

    The overall case is fairly rugged and does a good job protecting my 10" Samsung TabE. I mostly let my 8 year old son carry it around to watch videos and play games. The case makes me feel comfortable that if he drops it I won't be out a few hundred dollars. The only thing holding this back from a 5 star rating is the "stand" feature isn't as ergonomic and rigid as it needs to be for regular use as a stand. That aside, this is a great product for protection against the temperamental and accident prone features of my kid.

    I got the tablet to replace my original tablet that gave up the ghost. The cover for that one was totally worn out. I went back to Best Buy and went to the Samsung counter. The guy there sold me a Samsung cover. The problem was that it was totally magnetic and just couldn't hold the tablet. I took it back and a Geek Squad associate selected the Insignia cover which actually has secure holdings for the four corners. Bless the Geek Squad. They know what works. And it was half the price of the ineffective first cover.

    We wanted a cover that would protect the tablet and was simple to use. There are some covers we looked at that had multiple pieces and to set it up to watch a movie on a table or on a plane and were just too cumbersome. This cover is versatile and allows us to use this where we want and is light weight so it is easy carry the tablet anywhere. They only had purple when we were there and would have rather had black, but we can get past the color since it works for us so well.

    I absolutely love my new MacBook Air. The keyboard is perfect for my touch and reach. This is just wonderful. I just love the color and clarity of all my pictures. I am a jeweler and sell on line and that feature is very important to me and my business. I am just thrilled the way my jewelry shows online now. I have never used a Mac before and it is well worth the effort to follow the learning curve to get used to it for all the new advantages I am gaining,

    I wish that I had purchased this long ago. It is THE perfect cover and Tablet stand that I have found. It is so sturdy and holds my tablet perfectly still.even placed on my bed. It seems to grip whatever fabric or what you have placed it on. I have fallen asleep watching movies in bed and wake up to find it still in the same place! I am definitely sticking with this brand. It is perfect for me and I bet if you give it a try, you will love it too.

    Numerous ways for positioning

    Great case if you need to be able to position your tablet for hands free use horizontally well as vertically. I don't use the camera in mine, so not having a cutout for the rear lens is not an issue with me. Thus far, the only flaw I have found is that I cannot access the pen that is nestled just on the bottom right corner of my tablet. Every time I need a use it I must remove the corner bracket to retrieve and return the pen. Aside from this one tiny design flaw, I love the case. And, have already recommended it to family and friends.
