    Offers some protection to Surface Book.

    Bought this for Surface Book to protect it. The rubber band that holds the hinged part together snapped apart (broke) before I even turned the computer on for the 1st time! It works ok even without the rubber band. The rest of it fits the laptop like a glove. I think this is expensive for just "plastic" but it was all Best Buy had to offer. Better than "nothing". It should protect it well from scuffs from other objects when carting it in shoulder bag with power cable, external hard drives, mouse, etc.

    The only reason i bought this is because it was the only protective case available for the surface book. I didnt like the way it looked in the pictures and i wasnt convinced by the reviews but i decided to try it out anyways. In real life I reallt like the way it looks, very industrial amd it seems to protect my surface really well although i havent had any drops yet. It does make you surface quite a bit bulker though, so if you are wanting to put it in a sleeve with this it might be a tight fit. I think its a good product but i havent tested its actual protectiveness yet and i hope i dont have to.

    Good protection, but some awkward corners

    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.

    I purchased this the same day I got my surface book 2 since I'm a contractor and needed decent protection. It was a little tricky to install but once that was done it definitely gives a good sense of protection. The only caveat is that it does not offer protection to the bottom of the screen in "tablet" mode. Another thing to pint out is that the processor is directly located where the Microsoft logo is on the back of the screen and uses that area as part of the heat sink. I'm worried that the case will trap extra heat in that area but well see long term how it does.

    Nice case to protect your surface. It’s a little hard to put on but if you read the instructions and watch a YouTube video it fits extremely well. It even has a storage place for the pen. The only thing I’m not thrilled with is the hinge. There is a small rubber cord that is supposed to keep the hinge close to the laptop however my cord broke right away. In looking at the design is not repairable. For the price this seemed a little cheap.

    Great protection, tight though

    This is a mixed review but leaning toward positive. So far, it has been a great protector of my surface book 2. However, it is super snug. Directions are not very descriptive and it was almost impossible to squeeze. I was at the point that I worried I would crack the screen. However, it is great and as long as you don't want to take it back off.

    This is one of the few protective covers available for Surface Book 2, which might be why it’s so pricey (my only real complaint). Asked Geek Squad to help me put the top portion on, because it’s so snug I was afraid of scratching the machine. Doesn’t cover the screen or keyboard, so I may get additional protection for those.

    A bit heavy

    This was the only cover available to fit my new Surface. It seems fine, but it does add a surprising amount of weight. Hard plastic, two covers seperate to allow the detachable lid (computer) to come apart from the base (keyboard). A good design, I like that it is clear, but it adds weight.

    It is an alright case, fits well but not sure how much protection it will provide. I feel it is overpriced for what it is, No screen protection included and that is the biggest fear for me. I sometimes take mine into industrial locations so will have to be extra vigilant.

    Fits snug, and provides confidence that your investment will be protected in the event of a fall. It does add a noticeable amount of weight. For those who use 3.5mm ports, adequate clearance may be a challenge, but nothing that a good file can't fix.

    The case was easy to put together ( the carry strap had to be installed ) I thought it would cover the front and back of my surface tablet but only covers the back. It does give it added protection though.

    It's designed to protect, which it does very well but my Surface has a detachable screen. The hinge makes it difficult to reattach the screen to key board. I recommend this for people who leave them attached 90% of the time.

    This cover fits ok. It’s a little loose on the bottom panel or keyboard cover but seems to do the job. I like it but for the money I think it could be a better fit.

    It is durable. I accidentally dropped my surface and it held together good. The only thing I dont like is that there should be more rubber on the edges of the bottom.

    When I saw that a tough case was available for the surface book pro I immediately bought one. Already have dropped and it functioned as stated. A must have!

    Doesn't fit as snug as I thought it would but could be that I installed incorrectly. Will take it by the store to have them check it,

    Definitely looks good, in order for it to fit my surface book 2 I had to remove the rubber inserts, Nice solid case though.

    This rugged exterior is great for protecting the outside of the product for accidental toughness and from everyday scratches that might occur.

    I wish I didn't need a case, but I know my Surface 2 will get banged up without one -this seems to do the job with minimum downside.
