    That is the difference between theory and practice. It slides on the table so you get accidental pixels.

    Does the Versasleeve allow for the VTN to be propped up in portrait mode?

    I bought the Bear Motion Case and used it for a while.

    Pros:
    plain w/ no logo
    pen loop.
    plastic backing fit well, holding tablet securely

    Aspects which I didn't like as much:
    slick and shiny
    white decorative border on front added bulk as did the interior card pockets
    Spine dimensions slightly off, felt loose
    strap covered USB port
    dark interior showed dust

    So I bought a Supcase which is much the same, except:

    No decorative edging on front
    grey cloth interior
    more accurately folded
    matte appearance (though more dark grey than black)

    which are all to the good (except for that last)

    Minor negatives:

    logo molded on front
    two layers of card slots on inside --- one would be fine, and I rather liked the Bear's ID window.
    Card slots sewn into two pockets --- l inserted a notebook into the Bear case, but the additional stitching keeps it from fitting
    No pen loop (but I'm thinking I can get an adhesive one and cover the logo)

    Considering getting the AceAbove, but it would still be shiny, and possibly not folded as nicely as the Supcase. I did get a third case w/ a BT keyboard, but it doesn't have the nice plastic insert to hold the tablet, plus it uses magnets which interfere w/ the stylus.

    My wife is using the Bear Motion. She seems to like it.

    Hello everybody,
    A new, proud owner of the AVTN 8 from Denmark here.
    I was wondering if anybody has had any luck with finding the often recommended SupCase for sale in the EU, preferably in Denmark? I have been looking around, but to no avail. Is the VersaSleeve just as recommendable?
    Regards

    Not in my opinion. If you can get a Supcase I would. The Versasleeve is flimsier. They both look good but the Supcase is more stable in landscape mode while using a keyboard.

    Her are both, side-by-side.
