Rated 2 out of5 byRacingSnake fromDisappointed, not really 'as described'...I bought this alongside the SP3 so I had a case to protect it from scratches.First impressions were great, well made, leather looks great, the wool looks fantastic too.However, I instantly noticed that the interior is NOT microfiber as it says in the description - it's just a standard polyester lining, which does not give that softness against the SP3 I was looking for.Second issue, and perhaps a bigger issue for me, is a fundamental design flaw.The pen loop is just that - which means that the very first time I slid the pen into it, it put a big scratch down the side of the 5 minute old SP3. Pull the pen out, yep, another scratch.The pen needs to be in a separate area to avoid scratching when removing either the pen or the SP3.For now, I wrap a glasses-cloth around the edge of the SP3 before I put it in the case so it's protected from the pen, but I'm going to have to modify this to make it usable & permanent.So, would I recommend this product - no, sadly not.... it's not got the microfiber interior it needs, and the pen loop has scratched my SP3, when I usually pride myself on keeping my gadgets in 'mint' condition.

Rated 5 out of5 byMarkiusmax fromA beautifully put together caseI've just received my case and am very impressed with the quality look and feel of this product. Having looked at the reviews and especially those criticising the pen loop holder I had some concerns. However I suspect Maroo have updated the product already as the pen holder in mine is a fabric tube which fully separates the pen from my SP3 and therefore has no way of coming into contact with it.The case is manufactured from a lovely leather giving a soft glossy feel with well stitched seems. The flap is secured with a magnetic which seems quite strong. The interior is lightly padded and is made of a light silky fabric and certainly won't scratch your nice shiny new SP3. Finally I like the simple maroo logo and discrete Surface branding on the back too. This is a beautiful case and recommended to anybody looking for a sleek professional look

Rated 5 out of5 byCarlos45 fromLoved quality and the finishI was put off a little by the reviews, but went ahead based on a reccomendation, as one of my work colleagues has one of these case.I'm not disappointed in the slightest, luxury leather, finish inside very fine micro fibre, and the stylus holder seems fine to me , so all in all a great product in my opinion.

Rated 1 out of5 bySchecter fromPoorly thought outA nice looking case let down by the execution. I bought the case because of the 'built-in stylus holder' but this is just a small loop of material which fails to separate the Surface Pro 3 from the (metal) pen. As a result, whenever you remove either item from the case, they scratch each other! This might not be a problem if older versions of the Surface come with plastic pens? I contacted Maroo about this in August and I didn't receive a response.

Rated 3 out of5 byjjcanderson fromNice sturdy caseThe one flaw is the pen holder is in the wrong place. it should have been in the opening fold so as not to apply pressure to the volume buttons and scratch the side.

Rated 5 out of5 byKaVa fromStylishI brought this as extra protection for the Surface Pro 3 and am not disappointed. It is a practical, non flashy option for keeping the Surface dry, clean and proctected from sharp objects whilst in transit.

Rated 5 out of5 byfrug000 fromGreat QualityIn my opinion this sleeve is very sleek and of really great quality. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and must say it is worth the money. You get real leather finish and nice coating inside that keeps my Surface clean. Fits well in my backpack and looks elegant while being carried.
