Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever I bought this and when I received it was for the 2017 Samsung tablet and I have the 2018 tablet. I called Otterbox to see if I could return it and the lady apologized and said she would send me the right one. And to this day I haven’t received anything. I even offered to send the wrong one back. Otterbox needs to put the sizes of their cases in the description so you know if you are receiving the right product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice My kid ordered one for a 2017 Tab A 8", but apparently his is a 2015. It looks like it would work great for someone who has that kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I recently took a trip to Scotland and had a previous model Galaxy tablet with an OtterBox case. My daughter dropped the tablet on the corner and it landed on a thick metal grate. Not one scratch and the tablet was intact. Also it rains a lot in Scotland and there was no issue with the OtterBox cover

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it Very good product fits the tablet perfectly and the screen responds well with the cover. I would have liked more tilt options for propping the device but otherwise a good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great OtterBox Products I have been using OtterBox Defender products for almost 4 years, and I have been pleased with the qreat quality construction found in each one. I have had two tablets, and two mobile phones; all four devices have been protected with OtterBox Defender products. Going forward, I do hope that OtterBox will continue to make their defender products; there is a near 100% certainty, that I will purchase more in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection At It's Best!!! Having just purchased a new tablet, it was time to get the best protective case available........ Otterbox. My cell phone has an Otterbox case and it had saved the phone any time it was dropped. The tablet case is another amazing case. The bottom line is easy........ If you want to protect your portable electronic gear, get an Otterbox!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For If You're Lucky..and I am Bought one 6 years ago for my then new Blackberry Playbook. Traveled the world since and the box is a little the worse for wear but the device is like new. Now I've a box for my Samsung T380 tablet. This box is made just as strong as the original. Perfect? No. The original had a sliding hatch to keep the camera lens covered when not needed. I miss that. Still, this remains the best protection you cna buy for your tablet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my navigation easier I use my tablet, with navigation software, on my boat. The hard cover makes it easy to mount the tablet on a pedestal. I drilled a couple of holes in the cover, attached the cover with a couple of screws to a pedestal next to the helm. Snapped the tablet in and I had a chart plotter as good as the one I paid a couple thousand for. Only drawback is it's not waterproof. But, pull a gallon freezer bag over it and bang, it's waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as always We bought two of these to protect the Tablets for the toddler and 1st grader and the cases are working great! I trust Otterbox to protect all of my mobile electronics and have not been disappointed yet. The cases fit neat and snug to the tablets so they're not overly bulky which is a huge plus. If anything, a variety of color choices would have been nice to quickly differentiate the two tablets but that's what stickers and lock screen images are for too! Thanks for another excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best protector case ever We have OtterBoxes for all of our phones and tablets in our house when I first purchased my Samsung tablet I was afraid to use it because it was so thin and slippery and I was afraid I may drop it but now I am really enjoying the tablet because I have no worries with the OtterBox

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Works great. I bought the tablet itself to view pictures from trail cameras, and wanted a rugged case to take up on the mountain. A previous review mentioned that this case doesn't fit the latest 2018 model of this tablet, but IT DOES.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Galaxy Tab A 8" Defender case Why protect a technological purchase with anything less than the best ? I'm using this tablet onstage and that's a rough environment. Nothing but an Otter box will do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right on time I brought this case for my Son's tablet and it has been such a blessing. He's old case was in really bad shape and I figured it was only a matter of time before the case was completely no good. Thank You Otterbox!
