Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for me and looks good doing it. I have the 9.7 canvas cover. It looks stylish and provides no slip grip. Considering that it is built for the Tab A, it gets things right. The tablet snaps onto the two posts (it takes a bit of guessing as to where the holes are in relation to the post, but once you get one, you've got the other.) The cover closes with a satisfying magnetic snap and lifting the flap gives you access to the unit. The magnet also signals the Tab A to shut off the screen. Perfect, no. As people have noted the easel setup only works horizontally. I wish that it would do vertical too. There is also no place to put an S-pen or small pieces of paper (like a business card, etc.) to provide a one-stop system. I'd love it if I could just snatch up the Tab and go rather than having to get two or three things.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I have owned this cover for my Tab A 9.7". Firstly, the fit is absolutely perfect. I love that the tablet sleeps and wakes up with the opening and closing of the cover. I imagined that it would last a very, very long time since I am very careful with my electronics and I perceived it to be an incredibly well made cover. It was pricey but initially, I was totally glad that I purchased it. Downsides: one of my disappointments is that there is no way for me to prop it up vertically with the cover. It is only functional in a horizontal position (found this out when playing a game, albeit one of my favorites, and I can only view it vertically. I learned to deal with that but then, my biggest and most annoying issue has been that one of the two screws that secures the tablet in place has repeatedly become dislodged. I have been able to put in back on but just recently, I am unable to screw it back on so my tablet is just attached to the cover by the bottom screw. Extremely annoying because now the tablet just "dances" around loosely. Had it not been for these 2 issues, I would say that this is an amazing product. I love Samsung and have been a fan of their products forever but am really disappointed that I have to now purchase another case. At the price I paid, I expected more. Still love you Samsung!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay case, but overpriced. This case looks very nice, before the edges of the canvas material fray. I need to cut the frayed edges off regularly. I wasn't looking for a case that I needed to maintain. The canvas is easy to grip, making the big tablet feel less awkward to carry around. The main reason I bought this case was because of the mounting system that was built into the tablet itself, so I didn't have to get bothered by the corners holding a 3rd party case. The magnet placement is pretty terrible. The only strong place to set the angle is really low or quite high. Anywhere in-between and it will not stand very strong to a light touch. There isn't really any protection to the tablet on the top or bottom, I've gotten a few scrapes already. The case also doesn't close as intended, in my... case... I have to put the flap underneath, letting dust settle on the screen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Samsung Could Do This Fix THIS IS A FOLLOW-UP. I looked for a case for the Galaxy Tab A with S pen. Samsung got slender and sophisticated right, but functional gets a failing grade. The "magnetic attachment" is absolutely useless, as in doesn't work, doesn't do what's needed to keep the device attached to the case. MY FIX is a pair of short strips of hook-and-loop fasteners (Velcro) in the right location, and I'm good with it like this. There's a slight bulge, but I'm living with that. If Samsung had done this instead of the useless magnet attachments, I would be able to give this 4-5 stars. With my Velcro fix, I'm upgrading my rating from one star to two.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Samsung could do much better. I looked for a case for the Galaxy Tab A with S pen. Very narrow search, since several generic designs didn't provide for access to the pen. I decided to focus solely on Samsung, since they were the creators of this device. Surely they would be the answer for a proper fit. Also wanted something slender and sophisticated. Samsung got slender and sophisticated right, but functional gets a failing grade. The "magnetic attachment" is absolutely useless, as in doesn't work, doesn't do what's needed to keep the device attached to the case. The tablet might as well be wrapped in a one-dollar piece of canvas. There's no safety against it sliding out and landing on the concrete. But I like the slender appearance, so I'm gonna buy some narrow black elastic and make a strap to hold it in this case. Very second rate. Be aware and only buy this if you're prepared to create your own fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very smart looking cover I received the Galaxy Tab A as a gift and I immediately went online with Samsung to order a protective cover. I wanted something that was classy, yet functional and this product meets both criteria. My tablet is the smoky black and this titanium cover is a perfect compliment. Very pleased with this cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality cover... Very happy with the cover once I received how it snaps onto the tabs on the back of the tablet for no slipping or readjusting like other cases. Overall I love the feel and the quality of the case.
