I have to admit that when I first picked up the convertible case for the BlackBerry PlayBook I was totally in love. It showed everything a great case can do. It was multi-functional, stylish and just all around awesome. I could carry my PlayBook in a "low key" way, keep it protected and use the case as a stand. I loved the overall design and feel and was a happy camper. As the days went on however my love started to fade. The power and volume buttons became increasingly more of a pain to press with the case on - sometimes not working at all. I realized that I enjoyed the "naked" feel of my PlayBook more than while it was in the case as well. So I've since moved on to try other cases that better fit me, but I don't think the convertible case is a total loss. It has some downsides that some could easily overlook. Word on the street is that RIM may actually be revamping the case due to various other issues as well so we'll see what happens on that front.
