I purchased the groovy cover and at first, I thought it might be too flimsy. My nook covers tend to take a lot of abuse as I keep my nook at hand at all times. One concern I had with purchasing both the HD+ and a cover was weight and portability. I always look for a purse that is not too big but has a side pocket to keep my nook separate from the contents of my purse and easy to get to and put away. I was quite surprised to find that my new HD+ and groovy cover actually fit into the side pocket easier and with less bulk than my NC with it's industrial easel cover. I try to keep my purses as small as I can get away with to force me to keep what I put into it at a minimum because I get serious back pain otherwise. (my nooks are as vital an item to carry in my purse as my wallet so it is ALWAYS a consideration when purchasing a new purse). The new HD+ with it's cover seems lighter in my purse than the NC with it's cover and it is thinner as well so creates less bulk . It is actually more comfortable to carry around than my NC is.

Though it has no clasp, it hasn't been an issue for me. One less item to create bulk and weight and the lack of one makes sliding the HD+ in and out of my purses side pocket EASIER as there is nothing to catch anywhere.

I love the automatic sleep and wake feature. THAT is awesome.

I'm quite happy with my cover and the HD+. I worried about the size and weight being comfortable to use, but I worry no longer. I don't know if it will last forever or not. My covers rarely do with the constant use they get. But having toted around my nooks in bulkier, heavier covers, there are real advantages to a sleeker, lighter cover even if it doesn't last forever. Comfort is sometimes just as important.

Though I like most aspects about this cover I am amazed they approved a cover that has a design flaw. The trademark nook hook on the bottom left corner of the device and the pass through hole on the cover are on opposite sides, the only wy to line them up is to turn the device screen down. Bad move B&N.

    OK, look...the cutout in the rear of this case is NOT for the lanyard hole in the lower left corner of the Nook. It is the relief for the SPEAKER at the lower right corner of the rear case cover. Without this cutout, the SPEAKER would be covered. Enough with the design flaw junk already...

    In any event, I like this case a lot, EXCEPT for the fact that the top right plastic cup that holds the Nook in place is too tight, and has caused the Nook's front bezel at that point to lift off the screen's glass, creating an airgap that is a bit unsightly. I think that this is a good quality case overall, but I may try a different type for this reason only.

    No keyboard, doesn't fit HDMI TV adapter. The bottom edge space

    No keyboard, doesn't fit HDMI TV adapter. The bottom edge space is wide enough to plug in the regular charge, but Barnes and Noble's own HDMI TV adapter. If you want to use the TV adapter for video watching, you'll have to either pop your tablet  out of the plastic frame or turn it around so the frame blocks the volume buttons. Barnes an Noble should at least make the effort to ensure its own accessories are compatible with one another.

    I like that the cover is light weight and keeps my Nook HD+ propped open.  My biggest complaint is that there is no closure.  I really like that in my Nook Color's cover, to keep it shut in my purse and to hold it open while reading.
