We bought this case for our 10-year old daughter's iPad since we wanted to protect our $350 investment, especially in the hands of a kiddo. Unfortunately, it didn't protect the iPad when it was knocked off a table last year. When my daughter reached to grab the iPad as it fell, the iPad flipped out of the case and landed on the concrete floor, with a spider web of broken screen glass to show for it. When I examined the case a bit more closely, I can see how the tablet was about to come out of the case so easily. The rigid plastic that the iPad fits into is actually really flimsy and doesn't grip the tablet very well at all. If the case had been closed instead of propped up at the time it was knocked off a table (our daughter was watching a show on it when it fell), I think the case would have been protective enough to prevent damage. But since the case was being used at it was designed, I was quite disappointed that it failed as it did. We have since bought a much more...
Overall the case seems solid and works well. The "smart" part of the cover works as it should and it seems to hold the iPad securely. Many of the "meh" reviews are relative to the case either breaking or stops working after some time. I've only had it a week or so, so I can't comment on that (at least not yet).
My downgrade of the rating is mostly due to the fact that it doesn't match the pictures and description. The picture shows the clasp on right hand side of the case on the same side as the iPad itself. However, the clasp is really on the lid portion of the case on the far left side. I bought it because I was looking for one that had the clasp on the right (as pictured) in hopes of using it to hold the lid open when folded back behind the ipad. Unfortunately, that doesn't work and the claps is often in the way and kind of a nuisance when the case is open like that.
The picture also shows a rather dark grey, almost blue-ish color. The...
Does the job for our iPad mini. I've had no issues with the sleep/wake cover feature. The stand is awesome and sturdy providing 3 different angles for viewing landscape style. The edges of the tab that keeps it shut have started to fray a little bit but we just cut off the plastic that has frayed and it looks fine. iPad has fallen down a flight of stairs and so far so good. My 4 yr old did drop it on a concrete floor while it was open and screen side down onto the floor. Of course the iPad shattered because of how it fell but had the cover been shut, I think it would have been fine. Wish they made this style for larger iPads. iPad mini sits securely into the plastic interior of the case. And you can't beat the price either!
May 20, 2015 Update: I ordered a new case as our old one had been battered and cracked from being dropped a number of times. Saved my son's iPad mini IMO. I ordered the dark grey as described (same as my last 2 orders - first one was vomited on and...
