I was planning to give this case 4 stars until I tried to remove the iPad from the case after reading some of the negative reviews. (Since I was able to easily use all attachments, chargers and buttons, I honestly felt no need to remove it, but tried for the sake of my review.) It actually wasn't as difficult to remove as some reviewers mentioned. I pushed back the clips holding it in on the hinged side and the right corner popped right out. However, as I was removing the iPad, the plastic clip on the left hinge side snapped off. So, now my iPad is not as securely fastened into the case at the top left corner. That was disappointing, and lowers my rating. As much as I like this case, it would be an issue if you need to remove your iPad fairly often.
The Acase cover is not without problems: It didn't fit the Apple accessories in the iPad's port (the Photive cover had the same problem) so I decided to blow off my right to return the cover and took a razor knife to the plastic area at the port, then cleaned it up nicely with a fine file. This worked effectively and so now I can plug in a standard Apple-branded SDHC card or USB adapter.
This cover is totally, absurdly, ridiculously difficult to remove the iPad from the Acase cover--you have to use a fine blade screwdriver or knife to pry it off and this process involves great danger to the finish of the iPad and perhaps even to the glass. I removed it once to enlarge the port access area as mentioned above and will consider breaking the cover off if & when I need to remove it again.
How any company can let something like these shortcomings past the usage testing phase is beyond my understanding.
The infamous "Houdini" issue with removing your iPad from the Acase is already well documented, although I'm waiting to get a different (replacement) cover before I even *think* of consulting the YouTube videos to walk me through my great escape. This issue by itself should be a deal breaker for many users, particularly if you'd like to be able to change cases out from time to time. But wait! - there's more bad news.
1) With the cover in its "easel" position, the iPad sits on the slippery bare back of that cover, and is prone to sliding. Or it just refuses to stay propped up.
2) The surface of this hard cover, while lightly textured, is still pretty slippery - especially for butterfingers like myself. After just a few weeks of use, I dropped it. I only dinged the corner of the case, and was initially relieved that the Acase did its job and protected my iPad, but now the entire lower portion of the trim at the "front facing" (iPad holding) part of the case's back is coming away. Point taken: "Hard" does not necessarily equal "strong" or "sturdy"
If you have friends and acquaintances who own tablets, check out their choice of covers. For me, it's the Maroo Koe II Cover for iPad 2-M-135 that I tested through Vine some 16 months back. I've loved that case - kind of to death. It's dirty and scuffed now, with minor peeling issues where trim fabric has come loose from the glue - but a year plus is not bad for a budget minded portable cover taking hard use. The padded Maroo feels truly secure when strapped closed, and it stays reliably "up" in the easel position, so I've already ordered a new Koe II for my iPad II.
The smart cover on the other hand looked stylish (I had the green kind) and added almost no weight or thickness to the device so that it was much easier to slip into a messenger bag or tote. However, it offered no protection for the back of the iPad (this is an issue because scratches to the metal finish will reduce the device's trade-in value). It falls off easily and at the worst possible time, and you can only successfully prop it up at two angles, one too steep (with the screen nearly perpendicular to the tabletop) and one too narrow (for typing, something I don't do much). Neither is particularly good, for example, for watching video or doing a lot of reading.
The Acase is just right. First, it looks GREAT, a black, matte pebbled leather on the outside, red on the inside, and the stitching is red, a very stylish detail against the black leather when the case is closed. While not so drastically slender as the smart case, it is much less bulky than most leather cases, with the device snapping into a hard-case backing that protects it even better. I totally love the simplicity of the propping method, a flap of the leather cover that folds back to brace it. A bit of rubber on the bottom edge of the hard case backing keeps it from slipping, so you can adjust the angle to suit (in my case, avoid the glare from overhead lights). Note: you may need a weight against the cover if the propping angle is especially acute.Read more ›
