If you are looking for a lightweight protection for your Playbook, look no more. The Perseus from Trident Case is a great companion for your tablet. The product comes with two parts. The main part is the rubberized silicone case which covers all sides, except the screen. The case provides good protection from minor impacts. As an added bonus, it also provides a better grip. Trident Case didn’t forget to protect your screen as well, which is the second part – a scratch/smudge resistant screen protector. Also included in the package was a lint free cleaning cloth, an application card to install the screen protector and instructions:

The case fits snuggly around the Playbook. You have to keep in mind, the protection it provides is a light-duty one. It will protect well from little bumps, but if you drop the device from couple of feet onto a hard surface, it may not be sufficient. Also, screen is protected against scratches, but it being open otherwise makes me worry about using the case daily.

The ports are fully open and are easily accessible. Of course you wouldn’t be able to use a cradle when the device is in the case. The little nubs on top of the power/volume buttons make them easier to access as well.

One funny thing I noticed, the instructions are from their iPhone version, I am guessing the product was a little bit rushed:

Overall, it is an inexpensive light duty case plus screen protector combo. It is lightweight and doesn’t add bulk.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Comes with screen protector
  • Added grip

Cons:

  • Case surrounding the long edges is a bit loose
  • Silicone is a dust magnet
  • Screen is only protected by a screen protector.

  1. “Case surrounding the long edges is a bit loose” <– Keeps me from getting a silicone case every time.

    That and the dust.

    If it were hard plastic I might consider the pink.

  2. i wish this song was longer and yes i mean? the actual song not the 2 whole minutes of introduction haha.
