Bought this case just play around with since it was $5 on Amazon with free Prime shipping.

I'm a fan of the smart cover (sort of). So I modified this case to work with it. I cut off the attached front Cover, then took a razor blade and notched-out the cover area just a little bit to allow the smart cover to fit. Worked great.

My actual plan is to get the Switcheasy CoverBuddy when the "matte" versions are released. But this case is actually pretty impressive (considering the price) for interim purposes.

What I really like about this case is that the back faux-leather is NOT slippery which makes it's very nice to hold. What I don't like about it is that it's a little thick. Great for protection, but I pretty much want the thinnest shell available.

Anyway......$5 and razor blade made for a good temporary solution!
