Just received mine.
Seems I accidentally ordered the "clear" one which is actually white.
Slips on easily since it is not a really snug fit. The cutouts are in the right places allowing access to all ports and speaker is uncovered.
Pretty nice cover, not too pricey.

I also got one of these, but really dislike it. The front cut out is too big (they seem to think the black bezel needs to be exposed), the case is not a tight fit (the back is 'flappy'), and it is too easy for the tablet to shed its skin. avoid.

(Also, the case has a nasty smell. This may wear off in time, but I don't intend to find out. There is also an issue with static, and it is a dust magnet)

can we get an update on your (any) opinion on this? is it comfortable to use tablet or awkward? will the tablet slip out easy?

I need to get the tri axis nice one from tuff luv but can't afford this price range yet, I already have a nice slip in envelope type case for transport but I'm always worried about a drop when using, when I do get a proper case I do know I don't want cut out for kick stand (want the flaps built in)

I bought a black PU leather case/cover from eBay, received it today with 2 screen protectors and a stylus touch-pen. £13.99 post free
Excellent item with cut-outs on the sides and for the speaker and kick stand.

Sorry, was not clear enough..posting over from a tablet. Well I tried this silicone gel one on my hdd G9 80. I did not have the problem with the slipping off since hdd versions are a little thicker. But of course there was no hole for the power port and the speaker location was not the same as the flash...and I did not find it useful for $20.
Instead I went with the Galaxy Case below: Just had to bend until they were loosen and use scissors to cut the bottom holders. But then I have a reinforced the hold on the case with a few velcro to make sure it's secure. Velcro is though but gives you the ability to detach the tablet if needed and use it out of the case with the built in stand. But since the case has builtin stand I prefer to spare the one tablet stand since I think they have been proven to not be very solid.
Also the velcro kind of insulate the speaker a little making the sound to come out very decently if not not louder through the space underneath.
Here's the link to the case with pictures: even if not shown in the picture this case can also be used laying position making the tablet stand not in much vertical but as if laying on your lap.

I've used two extra velcro coins like on the case and on tablet to to make sure the tablet stick in closed state.

Of course for me this was a cheap very good solution until proper HDD case is released.

I messaged the seller who said the HDD model wasn't supported. Might keep on looking for one that is guaranteed suitable for my Tablet.
