    Hey guys,

    I just received my beautiful blade today and am looking for a sleeve to protect it.

    I have bought the Samsung 9Series 15" sleeve (BS3N14B/E) as it has the closest dimensions to the blade that I could find.
    I am still to receive the sleeve, but as soon as I do, I will report here to see how it fits.

    Has anyone find anything good for the laptop though?

    Thanks!

    Can you post your CPU/GPU idle and load temps while playing a video game?

    Thanks!

    Let me know how that sleeve fits. Razer has a 14" one coming, but when I was attempting to put it in my cart it was only spitting out error messages. Apparently they don't have any in stock, not sure why it's even showing up on the web then. Definitely going to need a neoprene sleeve to protect the Blade!

    Interested in this as well. Someone mentioned the Samsung Series 9 15" leather sleeve but I'm more interested in one without a flap (either zip up or slide in)

    I just got the sleeve yesterday.

    It is slightly bigger than the laptop, prob a cm wider that it should, but it's fine.
    It isn't the best case ever...not even close. I really don't like the top, it doesn't have any magnet or anything to keep it closed.

    I don't know if I should recommend this or not but, due to the fact that I couldn't find anything suitable for my precious Blade, I will have to keep using this.

    Has anyone else find anything?

    Sad to hear that. Yeah I'm not a fan of a case with a flap like that, especially considering it has no magnets. I think a nice neoprene case would be more appropriate. Wish razer would make one for the 14" blade..

    Do you guys think the retina MacBook Pro sleeves (made by case logic, Incase etc.) would be a good fit?

    the blade will fit in "any" 14" bag, case, sleeve. I have bought 2 different ones - i couldn't decide which so bought both, and they both fit nicely.

    Hey zero, just saw your review, it was amazing! Thanks for that.

    Would you by any chance be able to post a quick video or pictures with the two cases you bought, as well as recommend which one to buy?

    I'm thinking the razer 14" sleeve from eBay but the giant logo is kind of tacky..I would like a much more subtle centered one instead

    Zero, also wanted to say thanks for the video, and echo the request for a short video about the cases. I want to find one that fits well, if possible before the laptop has been here for too long.

    I've been looking around and this is the list I have so far for cases in order of preference:

    Samsonite Aramon NXT 14" - $16
    Razer Blade 14 "unofficial" Sleeve - $35 (on eBay)
    Case Logic PLS-14 Sleeve - $18
    Case Logic LAPS-114 Sleeve - $14
    Case Logic MacBook Air Sleeve - $35
    Samsung Series 9 15" Leather Sleeve - $35

    Besides the unofficial one, all others can be found on Amazon. Thoughts? The Samsonite one looks very good but I want a tight fitting one for the blade dimensions: 13.58" x 9.25" x 0.66"

    Anyone else want to give some advice for a sleeve? Looking at the Samsonite one, but want to make sure it fits well
