I am looking for accessories for my new Galaxy Note 10.1.
Can't seem to find anywhere in NZ stocking decent stuff, especially screen protectors (want to get a decent one) Screen already has a minor scratch on the screen which is annoying me. Don't want to get a cheap one as it will effect the tracking of the s pen according to lots of online forums. 
Also looking for a HDMI adaptor and a decent case.

Any suggestions?

I got the official Samsung screen protector from Aquila. Works fine and I've been scribbling away on it.

Coincidentally my Zenus Masstige Lettering cover arrived today. I ordered that one through Amazon because I had a giftcard. Alternatively Expansys lists it and a number of other cases and accessories.

I haven't gotten the HDMI adapter yet, but it is available locally from for example Ascent (or even Noel Leeming/Bond&Bond if you're in a hurry).

Thanks Jarno, i had noticed the official one at a few places, how does it do for glare and fingerprints? and how easy was it to install?

Let me know what you think of the case.

Glare is slightly reduced I think. It's a clear screen protector and doesn't claim to be anti-glare. It smudges about the same as the screen but I don't notice it when the screen is turned on.
In my opinion the screen protector feels more comfortable to the touch than the screen glass. Probably because of different heat conductivity. The protector feels warmer.

Application is pretty much standard. No fancy sprays involved.
Okay, I admit I had to look it up on youtube because I never before applied a screen protector.

For the case it comes down to what you are looking for. The Zenus case is luxurious, solid and durable, holds the tablet physically tight (no magnets or strings), and feels great. But it also almost doubles the thickness of the tablet and adds some weight. For standing it has two positions in landscape. Though it can in theory stand in portrait orientation I don't trust it to keep it standing tat way after a slight bump.

The Samsung Watcom S-Pen is definitely much better than the inbuild s-pen.
Much more responsive and more comfortable to use.
Unfortunately there is no where to store it, so have to carry it in pocket.

Got a E2 rotary leather case, comes with a free touch pen and a free screen protector from ebay
Case can be mounted in many different position.

Got a handful of charging/sync cable from ebay as well.
Cheap USD$2 each.
