Rated 1 out of5 byyellow130 fromDon't Bother.When I pulled the case out of the box I was enamored.. until I actually started using it...The first thing that annoyed me is the fact that you MUST lay the case out flat - in order to extend the kickstand on the Surface tablet. Which doesn't seem like a big deal - until you're working on a limited space desk (say the bar at the coffee shop). You'll need at a minimum - 16" of depth, in order to be able to place the item on the desk.At that point you'll need to take the keyboard cover out of the case. Oh but wait. it's a pain in the butt. The case attaches to the Type cover using an overly tight spring bar. Maybe my case was still too new, but that spring is difficult raise. Further if you open the case the wrong way (e.g. keyboard section first), or if you try and fold the top end over (in order to use the surface while on your lap) - the angle of the screen gets all wonky, the keyboard eventually loses alignment to the case mount, and as a result you will need to re-seat the keyboard connection on the caseAs for the pen holder - it's on the screen side - which is entirely wrong. It should have been on the keyboard side.Aside from that, the leather is nice. It seemed to hold up well. And it protected my tablet. But my next purchase will be a surface sleeve.

Rated 4 out of5 bySuperIke fromGreat caseI have now used this case for over a month and I like it. I was looking for a minimal case, one that would afford protection when carrying the SP3 around, without constraining the SP3 in some kind of hard or bulky case. This one flips open easily and rapidly, provide a stable typing surface when you're using the SP3 on your lap, looks good, adds minimum bulk and still allows easy removing of the SP3 when you need to do so. It also seems sturdy enough to last quite some time. The only thing I wish they would improve is that I cannot totally flip back the keyboard without getting the SP3 unhinged from the case.Some people say that the SP3 can easily fall off, but that hasn't happen to me. If it happens, that's because you were not holding the case and you are let it drop on the ground.

Rated 1 out of5 byBigBill5054 fromCheapI took the computer in the case on 1 ten day business trip and the elastic strap that holds the case closed fell apart, I had to add a large rubber band to keep the case closed.

Rated 2 out of5 bymomom fromFolio won't last longCool color, nice cover. The straps for closing the folio and holding the pen have already come loose from the cover and we have only had it about 2 weeks.

Rated 1 out of5 byKevinsCleverNickname fromTerrible odor won't go away!The Incipio Roosevelt Folio for Surface Pro 3 looks decent. I got the one in black and it would look professional. HOWEVER, I plan on throwing it away. Why? The smell.I had read reviews about Incipio's products smelling bad, but I figured reviews on the internet were just being too sensitive. Oh, how I was wrong. I noticed the smell as soon as I opened the package -- it is pungent and metallic. smell as soon as I opened the package -- it is pungent and metallic. It makes me feel nauseated. I tried completely coating it in air freshener and then "airing out" for an hour a few times, but it didn't help. That's when I decided to completely drench it in spray disinfectant and leave it outside (I would NOT leave that smell inside my house!) for over two weeks. When I returned, it still smelled bad -- granted, not quite as strong as when I first got it. I'm done with it. I would return it, but honestly, I don't want the shippers and factory workers subjected to that smell. No one deserves that. I would burn it to rid the world of this haunting smell forever, but I'm too afraid of what chemicals are in it that would release into our atmosphere. It's going in the trash.

Rated 4 out of5 bykamarr fromnice, but...It is a nice case, especially for free. It logs god, is padded but reinforced, and had a pen holder. My only qualms so far is that the own holder is placed overly for a right handed user, such that the pen is always upside down when you go to get it out. The other offsite is that I can't find the keyboard all the way back behind the screen with out still snapped in place for one handed holding. Aside from those minor points, which in sure will become increasingly annoying as time goes on,a great case for a great device.

Rated 1 out of5 byCrissy frombad smell, and doesn't come with the surfaceThis sleeve doesn't come with the surface, it's not convenience to take it off or put it on, and it doesn't look stylish, besides, the smell of the sleeve is really bad, like fake stuff, the quality is not good!
