It's great. Feels very sturdy and of good quality. Has extra little features on it that I wasn't expected such as an elastic strap to slip onto your hold for better grip, the screen can be locked into place if you don't need to put it into the stand position. Like it a lot so far.
Had a problem with first one ... great customer service ... replaced it
This was my second case .. the first one lasted for years and was very good. I reordered. The new one had plastic in the "clip" (old one had metal). It is a very tight fit until it stretches out. Unfortunately, I broke the clip on this one. Monoprice replaced it immediately. I couldn't be happier .. good product .. great service.
I have a Google Nexus 7 second edition. I've been looking for a good fitting case with the correct hole for the camera, for over a year. This case is exactly what I need. Can't find anything better. Great price.
PROS: Fit, materials, holes in right places. Highly recommended.
CONS: the closure is a little tight, so no 5. Once it is shut, it is stiff and hard to open. So I usually just leave it unsnapped and stick it in my bag when on the go.. The screen still shuts off without snapping shut, saving on the battery.
The case I received was so tight at the hook that snaps the cover closed I was afraid it would pull the screen of the tablet when opening. I tried to flex the hook back and it broke. The reason I purchased this case was due to the quality of the case I bought from Monoprice for my Nexus 7 (2012). This 2013 case has the same craftsmanship but did not fit as well. Monoprice has always given me great service.
PROS: Good craftsmanship on the stitching fair price fast delivery
I purchased this cover due in part to the satisfaction I had with the Monoprice cover I had bought for my original Nexus 7 and also due to the Monoprice customer service.
This cover was not made to fit as well. The hook that keeps the cover closed was so tight that I was afraid that the tablet touch screen would be pulled loose when opening. I tried to flex the hook back, but it broke.
PROS: Well stitched Quality Materials Fast delivery Fair price
Duo Case and Stand for Google Nexus 7 (2013) - Black (Monoprice item number 10971) has the very same wording in the description section on its Item page as the The Duo Case and Stand for Google Nexus 7 - Black (Monoprice item number 10517). However item, (10517) does not have a camera hole so you will have to remove the case every time you want to take a pic. And item 10517 fits the earlier build of the Nexus7 which is thicker than the newer builds so the snap cover does not stay closed on the newer build Nexus7. I'm presuming that is what the (2013) is all about in the Item title. I can think of several other meanings for the (2013).
Both of these issues should be mentioned in the description avoiding the need of the customer paying return postage to replace a wrong product order.
PROS: fits nicely, supports unit for use and viewing, closed cover turns screen off, can use camera without removing the case, firm providing good protection, attractive
CONS: none at this point if you have the newer thinner Nexus7, I've not experienced others cons of Nexus7 shutdown when folding the case cover back all the way
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
