This case replaced a really good slipcover case that I had been happy with, except that I was tired of having a totally separate case, that had to be temporarily set aside somewhere (not at all convenient in places like small-table cafes), and then required a bit of extra time to re-insert my Surface Pro when ready to leave, like putting on a glove - not a big deal, but very self-consciously noticeable anytime others were waiting on me when leaving a meeting.
This folio is the perfect solution. The Surface never needs to be taken out, it opens to standing in a flash, positions extremely easily, and closes, ready to go, even faster. All ports, camera, charger, and power switch are fully accessible - again, the Surface never needs to be removed. And I feel far more confident that the Surface is well protected. Like others, I never feel a need to use the strap to hold the case closed, though its nice to know that it is available, should I ever want more safety while carrying it. And more valuable than I had anticipated, I now always have the Surface pen with me. The strap for the pen on this folio case holds the pen securely in place, such that it is always readily available, and I have no fear of losing the pen. And by the way, upgrading my Surface Pro 3 type cover to the Pro 4 type cover made no difference to the fit in this folio case. It fits perfectly. The case does add a bit of bulk and weight, but that tradeoff, in this case, is small enough to be well worth the added value.
This is an honest review. I received no compensation or consideration for it, I just really like this case that much.

Function and Style
This is the perfect case for the Surface Pro 3. It is attractive and professional looking, easy to remove the device, and a much better place to store your pen. I receive many compliments on it. Even though it does add some weight to the overall Surface experience, I would not hesitate in purchasing it again.

Nice case, arrived on time. Two cons... The case makes the pro a lot thicker and heavier and Velcro is used to adjust the stand part. The Velcro gets stuck on things easily, just something to note.

How do they make such nice cases at such reasonable prices?
This was the second case I bought for my Surface Pro. The quality of this one is superb. I think it might even be real leather. :) The white stitching against the black leather is nice too. What I especially like about it is that there are little tiny velcro tabs at the corners of the tablet so that you can set the screen to whatever angle you want.I use this case with the keyboard and there's enough material in the spine of the case to allow it to close nicely. Without the keyboard, you can fold the cover back against itself, also with ease. I wish it came in some other color choices. I'm wondering how long the white trim will remain white although I've had this case for several months now and it still looks like new.

I am more than pleased with my purchase
I am more than pleased with my purchase. Before I had a case, I accidentally dropped my surface and cracked the corner of the screen. Not only did this case hide my ugly crack, but I found it to be very intelligently designed. The bottom of the case has small amount of velcro on the bottom that hooks into the felt to make a very clever adjustable stand. The case does not cover any important ports or speakers, and feels robust and well built. The fit and finish is of very high quality, it just feels like a great deal for the money. I would easily recommend this to anyone.

Looks and functions great with the SP3 with keyboard attached
Fits my SP3 perfectly, locks it in and does not cover any ports or cooling vents either. I like how it looks too. I had a similar case which had elastic around the edges that did block some of the air and also made the USB port a little tight to plug into. Not this case though. Also this case has velcro on the bottom edge which allows me or you to position the angle of the tablet where we want and it stays there unlike my other case that did not have velcro on the bottom edge. It has an elastic bands that wraps around it to keep it securely closed.
The keyboard fits in nicely too
Im very happy with it and recommend it to anyone with a SP3 .

I like the texture of both sides and it is easy ...
The folio works really well. I like the texture of both sides and it is easy to prop up my computer at multiple angles. There is a little slot for the Surface pen (which is soooo useful) and an elastic band that you can use to hold the folio closed. I chose this folio over the other Surface folios because this one can hold both my Surface and its keyboard at the same time. Other folios have no space for the keyboard and it ends up sticking awkwardly out of the folio. I'm glad to say this folio definitely works :) The folio does not cover any important parts of the Surface (other than the kickstand) and still allows me to easily swipe left, right, up, and down from the edges of the screen. The keyboard connects easily to the Surface even when it's in the folio. However, the folio covers a bit of the bottom part of the Surface so that the magnetic force that allows the keyboard to stick to the Surface at an angle is decreased. It's not a major problem though. When I want to use the Surface as a tablet, it's easy to detach the keyboard and fold the folio over so that it's not in the way. I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase :)
A few complaints: I mostly bought this as a protective covering for my Surface and it works. (No scratches or smears anywhere yet!) However, the folio actually limits the variety of ways you can prop up your tablet. Since the velcro at the bottom of the folio needs to make direct contact with the fuzzy portion of the folio in order to stay, the lowest the Surface can be propped up is 5-6 in. above the table at one angle. I find this angle rather troublesome for taking notes and wish the folio could prop up so that one angle is only 2-3 in. above the table (sort of like iPad covers). In contrast, propping up the Surface at an almost 90 degree angle (in order to mimick an actual laptop) is an equally troublesome task as there is little support. A slight touch and the whole thing goes tipping over. In addition, the furry part of the folio ends up jutting out awkwardly when the keyboard is removed. It's times like these when it's just better to take the Surface out of the folio and use its own kickstand (which easily solves both of my Surface angle problems). Unfortunately, it is also rather hard to take the Surface out of the folio once it's in. A huge velcro flap that goes between the Surface and the furry part of the folio makes sure the Surface is secure...but trying to dig out that velcro flap is a rather tedious process that involves me squeezing my fingers under the velcro and hoping that I don't end up breaking the folio itself. Then again, I bought this folio mostly to keep my Surface clean and scratch-free so it serves its purpose. 4 Stars :)

Great case for my surface pro 3
Great case for my surface pro 3! Two great things...excuse me...THREE great things I really like about the case:
1.Quality: The case does great in this category. It is constructed of a strong leather material and has stitching on the sides, giving it a more elegant look. The case does give the tablet more, bulk but I actually like bulky cases since it adds a great layer or protection against drops.
2. Pen loop: This is a no-brainer for any case for the surface pro series. With this, I have no worries of losing the 49 dollar pen. In my case, its the pro 4 pen.
3. Usage with type cover: Absolutely genius. This and the design was the main reason why I got this case. The fact that I can keep my tablet in there and not have to remove the keyboard is wonderful. I can still use the tablet as a tablet or a laptop.
The only small drawback is that, for writing, I cant have the tablet at, say, a 35-degree angle for the most comfortable and visible writing space. But thats not so much a big enough deal for it to not get 5 stars.

Finally, a durable, stylish, well designed case for the Surface Pro 3 - you need this!
After purchasing another brand (garbage), I found these. I bought one for my wife and she LOVES it, so I bought one for myself. Very nice quality, ports are accessible, doesn't get too hot, very stylish. The Velcro allows you to stand this up at different angles. Better than using the SP3 kickstand. You won't be disappointed. If you have the Surface Pro 3, this is the case you want.

Shortly after buying my Surface Pro 3 I knocked it off a table and destroyed the screen. I'd been looking for a protective case for it's replacement ever since. From the moment I put my tablet into this cover I knew I'd found what I was looking for: a cover that both protects the tablet AND allows me to leave the keyboard attached. The tablet is a lot thicker with the cover on, but it still fits into the carrying case I've been using. I've also been using a book bungee from another manufacturer to both hold the tablet closed and keep the stylus close to the Surface Pro; the book bungee fits around the cover just fine. On top of all that goodness, the cover feels good in my hands and is my favorite shade of purple. Overall I'm very happy with this choice.
