Tough, ugly, filled with sharp edgesPosted
Look around and you will find that the options for a protective, clear case for the Surface Book (1 or 2) are very limited. In the time I have spent looking for a case for mine I have found 3. I thought that this one would be it because of the manufacturers reputation and reviews I read on Amazon. Upon arrival I could not help but notice that this case was built to be tough. Though that may be the case, when one installs it on the Surface Book one quickly notices that the beautiful design of the Surface Book fades away as it is wrapped in the ugliest case a laptop could have. It nearly doubles the weight of the Surface Book and has nothing but sharp edges. When placing the laptop on my lap I could feel the sharp plastic and rubber edges uncomfortably on my legs. When opened, the plastic that covers the keyboard also felt sharp turning the wonderful experience of using the laptop into an undesirable one. Separating the tablet from the keyboard was no better. Firstly, like I have said already, the edges are sharp. The bottom part of the tablet cover has pointed edges that make holding the tablet very uncomfortable. The one thing I hated the most was trying to reattach the tablet to the keyboard. One has to hold the rubber that wraps around the hinges back with one hand and attach the tablet with the other. This fight nearly removes the desire to separate the tablet from the keyboard. Overall I truly dislike this case. It is by far the worse case I have ever used (I have always had cases on my devices). I have given it two stars because it will certainly protect the device if it were to fall but its ugliness, weight and excessive use of rough edges has been enough for me to take my chances until the next case comes in and remove this thing from my Surface Book. It will definitely be returned.

Good protection, but some awkward cornersPosted
I really like the UAG products. This one has a clear back, which is cool, so I can finally put my Marvel cling on. It is a snug fit around the tablet part of the Surface Book, but around the keyboard, not so much. Both front corners are somewhat flappy. You do have to hold the base cover back from the keyboard dock in order to reattach to the tablet to it. Not so much of a complaint, just something that keeps it from being a single handed operation and quick. Overall, it is lightweight and provides a very convenient clip for the pen and access to all the ports.
