Great Design, Wrong Specs
This review is from: Pelican HardBack Carrying Case for 7" Tablet PC, Digital Text Reader - Black
Pros: Solid design and weathertight. Provides protection to contents. Latch is easy to open and close. Hinges and latch utilize stainless steel pins, so longevity is assured. Pressure valve allows case to be opened at high altitude (not sucked shut). Product is great!
Cons: Newegg specifies the Pelican 1055 holds a thickness of 0.85 inches. Holds my Nexus 7 quite easily, but would not hold the Nexus 7 with the keyboard (Newegg #9SIA1PU0KU2040). When the keyboard is attached, the thickness is 0.75 inches. Outside of package says 0.6 inches. Tried to close the case, but it warps the sides, negating the watertight seal.
Other Thoughts: As is typical, Newegg ships quick, has great prices, but needs to correct the dimensions to match the product packaging.
