If you want something elegant and slimline this is not the case for you! I got this because it provides all-round protection front and back and looks like a plain leather book. It comes in a range of colours (or colors if you are from the US) and the dark blue one which I have is nice and understated. With the Nexus 10 installed it is just under 20mm thick and the case projects slightly around all three exposed edges. Standing up (as in the picture) it is not particularly stable but good enough. You can easily access the on/off and volume control, and you can connect charger, phones and HDMI cable with the case open or closed. Closing the case sends the Nexus 10 to sleep immediately (provided you put it in the right way round!). There are cutouts in the right place for the front-facing speakers (I would have liked them slightly larger but I don't think they impede the sound). There are cutouts in the rights places for the rear- and front-facing cameras I have had a case exactly like this for two years for an ipad which I had on loan and have now had to return (thus the purchase of the Nexus 10) and it stood up well to two years' usage, so I think this one will as well.
It's nothing fancy, but it does the job
