This is just my quick review. Received the unit about 30 min ago. Put case on, and these are just first impression and first phone camera shots. It is late here and somewhat dark. I will Retake pictures better at a later date so just bear with me here. There is also this same review done by a different person, with the red case. Link is posted below. http://www.surfaceforums.net/threads/urban-armor-gear-red-case-quick-review-w-pics.11931/ First impressions. Well first thing I did was cut the case. I cut out a little block in between air vents of the case, and slowly shoved my pen loop through. I have my pen loop on the surface pro itself. When I need the pen, I don't have the keyboard, so don't see the point in having the pen loop on the keyboard. But that said, the pen loop pushed through just fine, and as you can see, pen is where I want it and works great there. The case itself is very solid, and the kick stand is great. The case itself pretty much covers the back, and the sides (with exception of the bottom which is only about an inch in, and then a gap left so that the keyboard can be plugged in without problem), and theres a very small lip that rounds the corner and over the front of the surface. This lip is very small, I would actually prefer a little larger. The rubber used, is really really nice texture. Holding it like a tablet or on my palm of left hand is a pleasure. Thickness wise, it really feels and look about as thick as the orginal surface pro 1 and 2. Which for me, I actualy prefer it. The thin factor of the SP3 is 'cool', but makes it almost to thin and feels easy to break. Now I don't think that this case will stop a crack or break if it falls. But it should help minimize it, plus really help with the fact that theres now a grip so less likely to slip from your hands, as well as eliminate any scratches. Which the 1 year with my SP1 left the back pretty scratched up, but I don't care. So overall, really pleased. I will write a further more in depth review probably tomarrow. As well as follow up in a few weeks or so with a review on how it actualy works long term and in the field. I hope you all enjoy. Any questions please comment. And comments please comment.
