    Great Case/Sleeve for Surface Pro

    I recently bought this sleeve along with my Surface Pro 3, and I am very satisfied. The sleeve has a high quality feel. The nylon feels sturdy, without feeling hard or rough. It feels smooth and soft inside and out. The zipper works well, without undue catching or binding. It is padded, so it will provide decent protection, but it is a soft case, and the padding isn't super thick. It should protect well against everyday bumps and knocks. The inside lining material is very soft microfiber material. It won't scratch the screen, and it also doesn't give any friction, even against the soft-touch material of the type-cover, so the Surface slips easily in and out of the sleeve. The sleeve is roomy enough that the Surface fits easily with the type cover attached. There is a loop along outside edge of the sleeve that can hold the pen stylus if you don't have it attached to the type cover (I don't). It's a tight fit, but the pen sure isn't likely to fall out. There is also a zippered pocket on the side of the case. The zipper is about a third of the way down the side, but the pocket is open above and below the zipper, so there is a surprising amount of room (though thickness of the items you could fit is fairly limited, obviously). Overall I'm very happy with this sleeve. Decent protection and a quality feel.

    Fantastic Surface Pro 3 Case, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    If I have the option, I will ONLY buy Platinum cases. I actually returned an Incipio case to the Microsoft Store when I saw Platinum had this out for the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3--not a cheap tablet/laptop/PC--because I only want the best. I have one for my Surface Pro 2, so I knew without a doubt that this case would have unparalleled quality. Everything about this Platinum sleeve is quality; it is extremely well-made and--hands down--has the most useful front storage compartment of any tablet sleeve/case on the market. I guess you could say that it is a bit pricey, though; however, if it costs more than $FREE-99, I think it is expensive so don't let me saying that deter you from getting this case. You can either save a few bucks by getting a subpar case for $40.00, which I don't recommend, or spend $10.00 more for peace of mind. Seriously, don't cheap out when it comes to keeping your tablet protected and having the ability to carry ALL your portable Surface accessories combined in one fantastic package. This case is DEFINITELY well worth the money!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! A++++++!!!!!!

    Room for the Surface Pro 4 and AirTurn Pedal

    I use the sleeve to transport the surface in a solo laptop backpack bought at Best Buy (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/solo-laptop-backpack-gray-black/5615022.p?skuId=5615022) and on it's own. This case fits nicely opposite another laptop I carry in the bag and offers extra protection when carried on it's own. The small pocket has enough room for storing the pen and the power cord. The main compartment of the sleeve is able to accommodate both the Surface Pro 4 and the AirTurn pedal I use to advance pages in the music software I use while playing music. It's tight enough where the pedal doesn't move around which is fine by me since it means the Surface won't be getting scratched up. I usually store the pen attached to the type cover, so it takes a little extra effort to get the zipper around that.

    Nice case for 11.6" tablet

    I needed a protective case for my Samsung 700T1C 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablet/keyboard, but couldn't find anything suitable among the generic cases at the Best Buy store. I found this one stocked separately near the Microsoft Surface tablets, marketed as being designed specifically for the Surface 4. In fact, it's a perfect fit for my Samsung, which has an 11.6" 1920x1080 screen. The wide-screen format makes it larger than the Surface, but there's enough extra room in the case that it fits like a glove. The black case is thickly padded and appears well-made with a smooth outer finish, not the suede or luggage-like exterior you see on many cases. There is a zippered slot on the side that can accommodate an AC charger, although it's a pretty tight fit - the slot is better suited for papers or flat items. I wish it were more of a pouch with a little more room for accessories like the charger, which I always carry with me. The only other thing I've found that I miss is a small carrying handle, for the times I carry the case alone vs. putting it inside a larger briefcase or backpack.

    Professional looking and excellent feel

    My Surface Pro 4 fell out of my backpack just inches from the floor and landed right on its corner. The screen completely spider cracked and the headphone jack was no longer usable due to the damage. Why did this happen? Because I threw the SP4 in my backpack and forgot to zip it completely shut. How could I have prevented it? By having the SP4 in a protective sleeve. After receiving my replacement SP4 I immediately purchased this sleeve. It has a very nice fabric interior and completely fits the SP4 even with both the Type cover and pen attached! It has a zipper closure to ensure your device will not fall out. There is also a small zipper pocket in the front which holds my phone, business cards, and charger. The sleeve feels great in the hand and looks very professional. I would highly recommend this sleeve to family and friends.

    Only thing on the shelf

    It's a sleeve that fits a Surface Pro 3 or Pro 4. If that's all you're looking for, this is the product for you. For the price, and given that the surface doesn't exactly boast an 'all day' battery, I would expect the pocket to be able to handle the charger without looking distended and stretched beyond it's intended design. I would be wrong. I absolutely hate this sleeve, but it was the only thing on the shelf for a surface pro 4 that had a pocket. So the choices are to lug around a backpack like a child, with your $1200 surface flopping around in a space intended for a beefy 15 inch laptop, or stuff it into a synthetic sleeve and pay the consequence of a massive tacky bulge should you elect to bring your AC adapter. And since it's *NOT* the tablet everyone has heard of, No amount of searching will yield a device specific carrying solution that will stow the adapter, and look remotely like something an adult would use.

    Nice replacement for the M-Edge 10" Touring Sleeve

    M-Edge discontinued its 10" Touring Sleeve a few years back - big disappointment! - leaving fans like me at a loss for obtaining a similarly protective and functional case to accommodate a 7" tablet or e-reader within its case, along with a zippered pocket for the power accessories, stylus, earbuds, and mobile battery pack. Enter the Platinum PT-MMSS12B sleeve, which I happily discovered while browsing at Best Buy. This sleeve nicely fulfills the same storage and protective functions as its predecessor, and since it's black (rather than medium blue and gray like M-Edge), it won't get dingy. I rate this product a 4 rather than 5 stars, though because each of its two zippers only work in one direction. I prefer zippers that have pulls at both ends.

    Great slim sleave

    I wanted a sleeve that was still slim enough to fit in my sling backpack which is fairly small. I don't particularly care for the neoprene sleeves and this is a great alternative. It is more rigid than the neoprene sleeves so I feel like it's probably slightly better protection, but it's obviously not as protective as a hard case. The inner lining is a very nice soft fabric, almost like a furry silk texture. It has also held up great over the past year I've been using it. Keeps my surface in good shape and doesn't add a lot of bulk or weight carrying it around The side zipper storage compartment isn't really useful for anything bulky (including the charger, which might fit but I didn't want to try cramming it in) but I just wanted the case to hold the surface itself. The surface pro 3 fits nice and snug in this case even with the keyboard attachment, without being a tight fit.

    If you want a Surface Pro 3 sleeve, this will do

    Posted

    This sleeve fits the Surface Pro 3 reasonably well, although it's at least an inch wider than it needs to be. It has a flat-side zipper pocket that things can be slid into. Since the zipper is about 1/3 of the way down the side of the sleeve, you can only slide a sheet of paper 2/3 of the way into it, and would have to fold the paper around to get the other 1/3 in. Basically, you'll end up folding papers in half. It's a dumb design. A sleeve that is designed for the Surface Pro 3 would have somewhere specific to hold the stylus. Here, the stylus has to slide around this massive side pocket, and could press seriously against the surface. I guess the intention is to mount the stylus to the Surface and slide the whole thing in. Another issue is that sleeve itself is very slippery, and you may find yourself dropping it if not careful.

    good but not perfect

    I am pleased with my sleeve, I like how it holds my surface pro3 and attached key board with ease. I like and dislike the pen holder "for security reasons" on side of the sleeve but I do use it. The front pocket is the only thing to complain about, I think it could be bigger to accommodate the charger in a neater way like a strap or pocket in side would be nice, however I can fit my charger and my external hard drive in to the pouch. I will buy a mouse later on but I fear having room for It in the pouch. However it is a slim bareminimum case that can fit anywhere that has some cushion to it.

    I love it. I'm the type of person that is very careful with electronics in general so for trips where I want to bring the Surface this sleeve is perfect. It's still slender, so I can carry it in my purse or in my tote when I go to work. It is lined with "micro-fleece" like material so I know it's protected from scratches on the inside. I have a Surface Pro 4 and it fits with the pen on the side comfortably. And who doesn't love pockets?! Love that its zippered so it can secure anything from business cards to half sheets.

    Sleek case for all Surface Pros

    This case is very sleek. The padding is sufficient and the overall construction is of very good quality. The outer material sheds liquid and resists stains as promised. The inner lining is soft to prevent scratching the glass of the tablet. There is also a side pouch for storing cords and accessories. There is a small loop on the outside of the sleeve that could be used for a pen, but I'd prefer to store my pen in the side pouch. The only con with this case is that putting bulky items in the side pouch creates a tight fit and produces a bulge. Otherwise, this is a solid option for a simple sleek case.

    I used to have the surface pro 2 and a pro 2 carry case. that carry case was so tight that I could not put anything into the case expect the pro 2. This pro 3 carrying case is perfect in that it has just enough room to carry my external drive (passport ultra 1 TB). or any thin drive. Of course you could fit the power charger also. another thing I like is that the case is just big enough to fit the pro 3 with the pro 3 pen attached. That sounds like a basic feature, but the pro 2 case was so small that it did not fit the pro 2 with the stylus attached. so it does make a difference. :)

    I had to wait around for awhile before receiving some assistance on a laptop sleeve/protector and finally found the right one. This sleeve fits my 11.5-inch Asus laptop like a glove, and is cushioned enough that I feel my computer is well-protected. I thought the zipper might get in the way but it doesn't seem to scratch the cover and has a nice loop for it to go through so it won't drag any cords along with it when I take it out of my laptop bag. I wish this sleeve had some kind of handle but it was not necessary. It was also a good price, and seems to be great quality.

    Very good, small front pocket for extra storage

    Overall stores the Surface Pro and attached keyboard very well. Somewhat padded but unsure of the degree of protection if you dropped the tablet in the holder. I think a great holder to take your tablet or tablet and attached keyboard from office to meeting and back. The small front pocket can store some business cards, and a cloth to wipe the screen. I have a LCD adapter cable in the front of pocket of mine as well and it has enough storage for it, but that piece budges out a little. Overall a pretty good holder for the device. No complaints.

    Perfect Sleeve for Surface Pro 3

    I've tried several sleeves and cases for my Surface Pro 3, and so far this one seems to be the best. The soft lining adds protection for my Surface Pro 3, as well as giving me the piece of mind knowing it will not get scratched inside the sleeve. The front pouch is perfect for storing my Microsoft Arc Mouse Surface Edition, and a few other accessories. The outer material of the sleeve can easily be wiped off if it gets dirty. Great case. Highly recommended.

    It isn't a mechanical keyboard 100%, but it has a minor sound of that mechanical goodness. I would say that I am pleased with this keyboard. It is smaller than most keyboards I use... let's think about that... so my hands hit keys on accident sometimes. But that is just something I have to get used to. If you're a developer of any kind I might recommend looking for a different keyboard, but for quick click and go keyboard with no battery extension needs... this is the keyboard for you.

    This is the second one of these I've purchased. One for my surface pro 3 and the other for a surface pro 1 (a bit big for that model but gives extra room). It has an external zip pouch for holding the power cord and stylus, etc. which is nice, but if you overstuff this, you will find that it can be a bit tough to fit the surface pro 3 into the main compartment without the zipper rubbing against the case. It really is the only decent option that Best buy carries for a surface pro 3 case.

    Does what it is supposed to do

    We wanted a protective sleeve for a Surface Pro 3 that would protect the SP3 and not add too much bulk. This sleeve allows the SP3 to be carried in a variety of briefcases, back packs, or bags without adding excessive bulk or weight. Construction and zippers appear to be of reasonable quality and appearance is good enough to carry just the sleeve with the SP3 in it. The sleeve makes no pretense of being visually attractive but it is unobtrusive and it meets our intended purpose very well.

    Nice Stylish Case

    Very nice, professional looking case. I bought this for my Surface Pro 3 and it works wonderfully for carrying it, the keyboard cover, and power supply. It has a nice slim profile and a velvet-like lining. The case works perfectly for protecting my Surface from getting beat up in my backpack. Occasionally it would be nice if it had some sort of simple handle but since it's usually in my backpack it's no big deal, I just carry it under my arm like my books between classes.
