      Nice Case, But...

      Materials: The cover is high quality, well made, which you/I should totally demand from a cover/case from the manufacturer. For a folio style, it is very comfortable and fits correctly. It is a thinner folio style cover; I was worried at first that it might have been too thin, but in the end, I think for carrying in a bag or reading in the park, etc. the cover's protection is suitable. If you're taking it camping or something where the chances of damage are higher then you may want to consider a secondary, more rugged case and screen protector. Attachment Method: This brings me to the attachment method, which is where I had my main issues with the case. To utilize the folding stand the only real viable method of attachment is through magnets. This worked fine for setting the tablet on the counter or a desk, but the method isn't completely stable if, say, sitting in bed and you have to pick up the tablet/case and move it. It was here that I had the table detach several times and fall off and onto the bed mattress. This case is very secure when sitting on a flat surface, but if you have to move it you had better grasp the case and table together before doing so or you may end up dropping the tablet. Ultimately, this is why I returned the case. After having the tablet become detached several times, I knew I was begging to damage it, which is definitely not something I want to do with a $450 tablet. S Pen Position: Some people have misunderstandings concerning where to put the S Pen. There are two possibilities. You can either use the two magnetic strips on the back of the cover. I was a bit weary of this method. It seemed to be begging to lose it by falling off. I opted for method number two which was to clip it on the spine of the cover. This spot still isn't ideal as the pen is exposed on the outside of the case, but I didn't fell it was going to fall off the case either. Samsung, would it really have been so difficult to make a pouch to slide the pen into? Overall, if you are transporting the tablet via a secure method such as a backpack or computer bag, etc. and you are using it in a responsible way, on flat, secure surfaces, then I think the case is an OK purchase considering it is made of nice materials and the S Pen attachment can be worked with. But, if you are going to be using this tablet for media consumption and the like on a couch, bed, or outside on uneven surfaces or your lap, I think you need to at least purchase a secondary case and screen protector, something more rugged. This case is simply not built for that kind of usage and if you try to utilize it for that then you are begging to damage it. YMMV. I think Samsung can do better than this given they want to charge $50-$60.

      Samsung needs to do some re-engineering

      This is my second Samsung Tab S series tablet. I owned the original Tab S with a bookcase cover. I decided to upgrade. After giving up my previous model, and upgrading to the Tab S3; I still needed to find a case or cover. Being that the Tab S3 is so new, there really are, no other options, than the covers available from Samsung. This model cover attaches only by magnets. The magnets, I personally find are not strong enough to secure the tablet and keep it in the cover if dropped or jarred suddenly. The original Tab S tablet attached to the book cover via two snaps that popped into the back of the tablet. I found that case very secure. I just don't feel this cover is worth $59.99. It gives at best, a shaky coverage that could fall off easily. Or the tablet could fall out from the cover with any sudden unexpected movement. I would not recommend this cover. Although Samsung is trying to get more sleek, they really need to re-tool the way to attach their proprietary cases. The unfortunate things, is there truly is no other option at this time. So I will keep the cover at this time. If something better can be found with in the return policy terms, I will return it, and choose a more stable case or cover.

      Sleek

      I have an undying love for all things Samsung, so I was pretty excited to see that this cover was on sale around the same time that I bought my S3 tablet AND I had a gift card balance available for use too. It was honestly a no-brainer purchase for me. Very nice quality and very sleek; no issues with additional bulk. Looks great on my S3 tablet and the magnets are strong. I like that the S3 stylus pen's clip can attach to the magnet strips on the cover. It serves as a holder for the pen when I don't need to use it and the tablet is propped up on one of the two strips. Because of those magnet strips I don't lose the pen all the time. I mean, lets face it, everyone has experienced the "I just had it...where did it go?" moment with a pen or pencil, especially when laying in bed. All in all, it's a great cover, super nice quality, and keeps everything all together. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better product!

      Excellent slim case

      I was looking or a slim case just like the one I had on my original Tab S, and this fits the bill. Not bulky, multiple viewing angles, and fits like a glove. It doesn't have a holder for the pen, but the clip on the pen is metal and it sticks well enough to the case's magnets to keep the pen from being misplaced. The only minor drawback for me is that the case attaches to the tablet by magnets instead of clipping on like the Tab S case did. Because of this, sometimes moving or holding it in an awkward way while using it causes the case to slide off. Not a major deal, but a minor annoyance. For the most part, the magnets hold it in place better than I expected they would, actually. Otherwise, it's exactly what I was looking for.

      A Well Made Product

      I'm very pleased with this folio case, but please be aware that it is not black as advertised. It's closer to what I would call a charcoal or perhaps a slate gray. It's very attractive, but it is not black. When you remove the case from its packaging be prepared for a very, very strong petroleum/ chemical type of odor. Fortunately this odor dissipates completely after a few days. I would have returned the case otherwise, because it is not an odor that I could have tolerated for long. Also please be aware that this cover is magnetic. The magnets are strong and the case works well, but I would not recommend it if you are in the habit of tossing your possessions around, or are looking for a case that is truly rugged. The tablet will shift around slightly in the case if you have a rough touch. I personally have not had a problem with this, but I'm careful with all my stuff, and particularly with something like a Tab S3.

      This case is perfect for some and bad for others. Me I love it! I can easily remove it to show off my tablets look and it does two important things that I care about. First, stands my tablet up for my viewing pleasure. Second, it has two spots on the front to hold the SPEN since this tablet doesn't offer a shot for it. Simply put if your looking for a tough case this isn't the one for you. If your like me and tend to use your devices naked more often than not. Your the customer this case is for. Hopefully now that you realize the pros and cons you can make an educated decision.

      It's a 3.5 star case

      The BB rating system doesn't allow for 1/2 stars. I marked it as 3, but it's really closer to 3.5. Pros: - Sturdy - Protects very well (I've dropped twice, no damage to tab) - Easy to add the tab Cons: - Way too finicky about how to make it a stand - No way I have found for vertical (portrait) stand - Since the Tab S3 itself doesn't have a holder for the S-Pen, Samsung should have at least built one into the case, but they didn't. It's a decent case, does its job, but nothing at all special. I really believe Samsung could have - and should have - done better, especially for the price. I'm also marking this review as "I would recommend this to a friend" but with a caveat: only if you haven't found another case you like better because the Tab S3 absolutely must have a case of some kind.

      Good Points and Bad Points...

      Having just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 tablet I wanted to make sure it was well protected! My previous Samsung S tablet case was excellent and held the tablet by rear cleats. The new S3 case uses magnets and unfortunately they may not hold the tablet. Within the first two hours my S3 had popped loose and fallen twice into my lap. I thought about using double sided tape but given the price of this case I think that is a sad commentary on the design! We returned it the next day and purchased a "cheap" case from another online retailer. If not for the magnet issue...my rating would have been four stars because of appearance, feel, and comfort holding the case!
