    I haven't bought a case. I like, for the most part, the type cover. Not the best protection, I know, but I like it. I just don't want to get a cover to make the sp3 bigger than it already is.
    THe type cover does have its faults..like I wish they had a forward and previous button for music...

    that is also my doubt. But after review, the keyboard is really attactive to me. and price is good. I'd compare for other options and decide tomorrow. thanks anyway.

    It doesn't have any slots cut out of the cover for the speakers.
    It also blocks the kickstand. The kickstand that is part of the case doesn't look as good.
    It looks like the keyboard is just sitting on the case, it's not held in place by anything.

    I like the looks of this one - http://www.amazon.com/Exact-Microsoft-Surface-BUCKLER-Series/dp/B00KGLC5F6 - I've had similar cases for other tablets I've owned and I really like the leather "clips" that hold the tablet in the case. Plus, the back isn't locked in to a case -- you *could* use the stand I suppose but I'm not sure how well that would work BUT, the good news is you have access to the microSD slot. It's not available til July 20, though. And I've never had a case from Exact so it could be ... uhhh ... not so good :)

    I *do* have an IVSO case for another of my tablets, though, so I'm also looking at these

    http://www.amazon.com/IVSO-Microsoft-Surface-Lightweight-Case-will/dp/B00KSVSKJ4
    http://www.amazon.com/IVSO-Microsoft-Surface-Slim-fit-Multi-Angle/dp/B00KAOJBM4

    You snap your SP3 in to the first one so the back is completely covered. The 2nd one is more like the Buckler - the SP3's kickstand is exposed so, if nothing else, you can get to your microSD slot.. Both are available now but not Amazon Prime. Not sure if either has room or will accommodate a Type cover, either.

    As I wait for my i7 256gb to show up I've already purchased a few accessories. I wanted to find a folio case of some sort but all the ones I found have a ribbon for the kickstand only allowing it to go back so far so I picked up the Targus sleeve at bestbuy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/targus-...wNw&siteID=TnL5HPStwNw-vhnyLT.bU_J7tpUVnNkdJA I also got a screen protector and a silver brushed metal skin from stickerboy.

    Man the cover in the first post is ugly. The other ones are much better looking.

    I like to protect my electronics too, but that's why I bought the Sticker Boy skins, it protects from nicks and scratches without any bulk.

    It seems as though you will not be able to use a Type Cover with this case, because of the built in clasp.
    By not showing the case used with the Type Cover, I'm assuming it will not.

    Yeah, that's my assumption, too.
