I really like the case and the protection it gives my tablet. It can be used in a number of different ways. I also enjoy the strap so I can hold it securely on one hand.
PROS: Great price, nice looking case compared to others costing $40+
CONS: When I use the strap and the cover is folded all the way back the magnetic field gets to close to the back of the Nexus and causes it to shut-off. I tried to remove the magnet but it looks like I would have to almost destroy the cover to get it out. I have to see if I can find a way to magnetically shield the back of the Nexus or DE-magnetize the magnet.
Thank you for your review. And I am truly sorry to hear of your experience you have had with this product. For now, if you prefer, I can assist you in setting you up for a replacement on the item if you haven't done so already. We do have a lifetime warranty on cables as well as a 1 year warranty for everything else. It will be of no additional cost to obtain a replacement, so please let me know if you want to continue. Thank you!

Knowing what I now know, I wouldn't have purchased this cover.
PROS: Sturdy solid construction. Button openings, camera opening are where they're supposed to be.
CONS: Magnet tool powerful. Can't fold cover onto the back without the Nexus 7 shutting off. Even during normal use, if the cover is open at a 45 degree angle, the Nexus 7 shuts off. Makes it un-useable.
Great product. Fit my Nexus 7 perfectly. The tablet turns on / off when the cover is opened or closed. The case also allows you to prop the tablet up on a table to watch movies, etc. You won't find a better case for the price. Anywhere. Period.
I went through 3 different cases over the first 6 months of owning my G2 Nexus 7 (2013). Including one that cost more than 3 times the cost of this one (Italian manufacturer even replaced it once when the outer material began to separate after only a few weeks). I've now had this Monoprice, rather sharp looking case for 2 years and apart from some worn corners it looks as good as the day I received it. It has saved my N7 on multiple drops. It will likely outlive my N7. The knownmagnet issue, is no big deal, you learn to hold the case so it doesn't open all the way. I hope Monoprice has the same case when I purchase my next tablet.
PROS: Incredibly durable
Perfect, snug fit for G2 Nexus 7 (2013)
Great tablet protection
Handy landscape orientation stand
Excellent quality materials with nice feel
CONS: Known magnet issue - can't open all the way without shutting off tablet
