What case have you found that works well with your tablet? We recently purchased 10.1" Samsung 2014 Edition and the choices are somewhat limited so far. I appreciate your help.

I really like the Moko slim-fit case I got for the Nexus 7. Much better than the pricier case I had for my Nook Color. Here's a link for the Moko for the Samsung 10.1: Amazon.com : MoKo Slim-Fit Folio Cover Case For Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, BLACK (with Built-in Multi-Angle Stand)-3 Year Warranty : Galaxy Tablet : Computers & Accessories

I've got the same case in red for my Nexus 10. The edging is getting a little worn down but it's a sturdy and useful case. I'd recommend it.

It drives me nuts people want to spend $20 on a case for a $400+ device. Spend some money for quality.

This from a guy that did spend almost nothing on his wife's $500 iPad case... and broke her iPad because it was just so damn cheap. The expensive one I got her to replace it is so very nice. TOP quality. Spend a few dollars and get a REAL case Tek. No offense to to Moku crowd.

The link you gave has not a single case for the 2014 edition and it is not listed in the options to the left.

You would think that Samsung would have a case for it's own product.

Well, the sturdier case I have seen so far is the "Otter Box" used on my work iPad. I imagine that there are several good cases out there, but this thing is made to protect the iPads when dropped. The only problem I found with this case is the installation instructions. When you read the instructions it seems to be an easy task, but let me tell you...it takes time to figure how to take the case apart (first step), because the four locking tabs or hinges at the corners aren't easy to pry apart with your fingers. I ended up taking the outer rubber skin (armor) off, and then it was easier to open the four tabs or hinges.

This one, but my workplace bought it from Amazon (over $80.00):

Been buying most of my gadget gear on eBay for the last 5 or so years, not one disappointment. Often for half a price of the same thing on Amazon. Skins, cases, extra adapters, you name it.

Otter Box is only for Apple products as far as I can tell. As stated in the OP I have a Samsung 2014 Edition.

Otter makes cases for most tablets, just different case models. The "Defender," made for the iPad, is quite expensive. But my employer paid for it, although I ordered it from Amazon since it was cheaper there:
