Interesting product - long review - happy ending
March 17, 2019
Well the rating is not really accurate, and here's why:
I bought this as a case for my asus tablet (zen8s or something like that I think), the one Verizon sells.
I bought it so I could hang my tablet from my neck and look at youtube while I walked. It comes with 4 corner holes and one strap, so I figured I would get an extra strap to hold it in a slightly inclined position resting on my chest as I walked. Initially I thought it would be nice if they sold an extra strap, and it would be, but the strap it comes with ain't great, (doesn't seem real secure, but I don't have any reason to not trust it yet, just doesn't seem real strong) so I will probably end up buying two additional straps from amazon anyway, but back to the product -- As a case for the tablet, I would have to rate it rather low -- probably one star *. I took my tablet out of my existing case (pretty nice case which I originally bought on Amazon) and I put the table into the new"Cooper Trooper 2K" case and I thought - what is this a joke - it did not fit my tablet well at all. It was very loose and there was no way I was going to trust my $200 tablet to this as a case, I would have to find a different solution. So after restoring my tablet to it's original case, I thought wow!, I wonder if the tablet in its existing case would fit inside the "CooperTrooper 2K" case, as the case is quite flexible - think "Stretch Armstrong", so I tried it and pushed and pulled a bit and voila, it worked. It actually worked quite well, so as a case, I would probably give it one (1) star, but as a case on a case for extra protection and to provide the 4 corner holes to support my tablet like I want, I would definitely rate it 5 stars, thus my overall rating of 3 stars. Also when I ordered it, I didn't notice it was not "prime", so I got an email notification that it would be delivered in about 1 1/2 months, so I went back and checked the order and found it was indeed not prime and also had excessive shipping charges of $7 on it - I was not happy so tried to cancel and amazon said they were awaiting cancellation from the shipper, so apparently cancellation and return are handled differently without prime as well. Final outcome is that the seller jumped on it, I had it in about 4-5 days and at this point decided to keep it, it is just what I need. So the seller is very responsive as well, so while to be fair I am rating it at overall three (3) stars, in my situation, I would definitely rate it at 5 stars - it solved my problem quite well - their are some issues you have to deal with such as lack of accessibility to the volume control etc., but to me a nice trade off and I get additional protection for my tablet. For now I just hooked the single strap which is included at the center of the case and works ok, but will probably add an additional strap, at which point I will update my review. Overall very happy with this purchase, but I think they are marketing and/or designing it wrong.
Update - I have added photos, and in the few hours since I wrote my initial review, one of the strap hooks broke with me simply handing it in my hands, so I am revising my review down to two (2) stars, after all it is only as good as the strap which supports it.
