Non-Kobo cases for Arc

Has anyone bought a non-Kobo case for their Arc? I bought the official one and I was not impressed. Expensive and mediocre design.

Has anyone had any luck with non-Kobo cases?

Eh. A case is a case. As long as it's got enough interior room for a 4.75x7.5" and no hard bits inside (like flaps to tuck documents in and suchlike) to scrape, that's all that matters.

I ordered this one
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/261157210722?...84.m1439.l2649

The price was right! It works well, fits well, isn't bulky, supports the sleep function, and I love the colour (I got the blue one). Shipping was free and arrived very quickly. (I'm in Canada)

I got one of those over a year ago for my Vox. They're very well-designed for each model with openings and cutouts in all the appropriate locations, better than the OEM Kobo Vox case, which had no cutout to show the power light.

Belkin makes a decent universal one. It's got the elastic corner straps but they're more secure than the normal elastic corner ones. I've used one on another tablet forever and the tablet never slipped out. It slitly covers the volume and power buttons but they are still accessable so it's not a problem.

I just got mine in the mail a few days ago. Some minor homemade tweaks made it perfect! Thanks for the suggestion.

My daughter-in-law got a really smart looking Targus case from Walmart. I don't see it at Walmart on line, but I see it elsewhere on line for $35, a bit pricey. Then again, Kobo sold their cases for $40.
