I bought my husband a Nexus 7 for his birthday in November and decided it would be good to have a Hardback protective cover for it. Researched and found the Poetic one. A few negative comments on site about magnets and such like, but thought it seemed like a good buy. I am very pleased to say that my husband has had no problems at all with it, so assume that magnet problem has been sorted. He also said that the hand strap is very useful when travelling on the train and using the Nexus, so does not slip out of his hand. He does not actually use the elastic strap as it does not seem necessary, but it seems firm enough, but probably with constant use would break eventually, but then nothing lasts forever. All in all, from a girl who does not really know much about Tablets etc. a really good buy and I would highly recommend it.
