From the Manufacturer

Made for Adventure

Some are content with minimal protection for their iPad mini; others are looking for moderate coverage. Then there are those who want to protect their investment at the highest level possible. The Defender Series is inspired by the latter. The Defender Series for the iPad mini draws inspiration from our customers with an active lifestyle, who work in harsh environments, are rough with their technology or are just plain clumsy. Its robust, three-layer design withstands dust, drops and bumps, making the Defender Series the industry leader for its protective qualities.

Anyone who has ever owned an Apple iPad knows it is more than just a tablet: it is a prized possession. And anyone whose broken one of these prized possessions knows that gut wrenching, “the world is going to end” feeling that takes over when you drop, step on, sit on (insert other unexpected, but unfortunately, often daily accidents here) your device. Never experience what that feels like by protecting your investment with a Defender Series case. From a drop onto the asphalt to a toss across your living room by a temper-tantrum-throwing toddler, we’ve thought of all of those “worst case scenarios.”

This is my 3rd Otterbox Defender case (previously I had the first generation iPad and currently have one on my iPhone 4s). I was pleased with the previous two, and, considering that this iPad Mini is for my six year old son, I felt that purchasing a third was a no-brainer. And, now that I have it, I have to say that I'm even more impressed than I was with the previous two. While I loved the Defender on my iPad 1st Gen, I found that it added a lot of bulk and weight. The Mini Defender manages to provide what appears to be the same level of protection, but it does so without adding the same proportional bulk and weight as that in the 1st Gen iPad, IMO (of course it still remains heavier than say, a leather folio).

Other pluses:

1) Excellent fit - the case feels like a natural extension of the Mini itself.
2) Buttons work great - with my previous Defender cases, the silicone protection over the home, power and volume buttons felt like big pieces of rubber, and not particularly sturdy. However, the silicone over the buttons on the Mini Defender are so well placed and and designed that it feels like you are using the actual buttons on the Mini without the protection - again, the case feels like an extension of the Mini itself.
3) The silicone backing has a nice, slightly grippy feel, which makes it easy and comfortable to hold on to, especially when gaming.
4) The case cover that doubles as a stand fits very securely over the display screen of the Mini, and adds extra protection for the corners of the device. With the case cover on over the front of the Mini, the surface of the Mini is fully protected if dropped (well, as protected as it can be anyway).

Those of us shopping for an iPad mini case the week the device was announced know that there were slim pickings. Out of the handful available, I chose the Khomo case -- it only cost $2.99 at the time (now it's $12.99). Plus it has a full back cover and a magnetic front cover.

But I'd had my heart set on the Defender. However, the $69.99 preorder price was prohibitive. So I waited until I saw one through Amazon Warehouse Deals for under $42.

As much as I liked that very affordable and well-made Khomo case, this Defender for the iPad mini is a thousand times better. No exaggeration.

Yes, it adds a bit of bulk. But it's so well styled that you'd think it was organic to the mini if you didn't know how thin the real mini is. This does not have the awkwardness of the Defender for the iPhone 4s (which I own). It is attractive and highly protective.

It's the difference between carrying a raw egg in a baggie and placing the egg in an egg carton. I'm now thinking I took huge risks carrying my mini around without the protection of the Defender.

If you've read another review about how this applies too much pressure to the mini and cracked the screen, I haven't experienced anything like that. It's well fitted, there is no flex between the case and the device, and I can't see how you could crack the screen unless you were trying to remove the Defender case and you torqued the mini in your attempts to extract it. Otherwise, there are no pressure points created by fitting this case onto your mini. Don't let that review stop you from purchasing this item. If you do, you're making a big mistake and not backing up your investment.

Unlike that other reviewer, I post constantly about products/books I purchase, the good as well as the bad.

I've been using OtterBox cases for a couple of years now- first on my iPad "1", then on my iPhone 4, then on my iPhone 4S, then on my iPad "3", and now on my iPad mini. I've been thoroughly pleased with all of the previous OtterBox purchases, and any time there was an issue, OtterBox's customer service was quick to respond and provide free replacement parts when needed.

All of that being said, it was a no-brainer for me to purchase this case when I ordered my iPad mini (which I'm actually replacing my iPad "3" with - I just like the smaller size better). And just like all of the other OtterBox products I've used, this one is a good choice.

Here are some pros of this case:
1) It's solid, just like other OtterBox cases
2) The texture on the back is a little smoother than previous cases, which is fine because of the smaller size and weight.
3) It has a built-in screen protector. It's not "HD" like other protectors out there, but it does the job well.
4) The cover easily snaps on and off and doubles as a stand with two viewing angles.
5) The cover also doubles as a stand with two different viewing angles in landscape mode.
6) At the new price point of $48, it's about $22 less than what you'd pay retail.

Here are some cons of this case:
1) It adds bulk to the iPad mini. But, that's expected considering it's intended to protect the iPad mini.
2) The cable adapter for old 30 pin cables will not work with this case. You'll have to use the adapter that includes the wire between the two connectors - it does work.

Overall, I say if you're looking for a good, solid case for your iPad mini and aren't too terribly concerned with the added bulk, grab one of these.
