Ipad shattered on first drop from 2 ft. while in OtterBox
on December 21, 2013
I know that OtterBox does not guarantee their products will completely shelter the Ipad from the elements, but they make a strong case that they are the best protection. On the very first drop of this product, perfectly fitted and used, at approximately 2 ft. height onto linoleum flooring the Ipad shattered and the OtterBox plastic front cover flew off. If you are aesthetically pleased with the OtterBox Defender I say go for it. If you are looking for Ipad protection against small accidental drops, do not purchase this faulty product. To add insult to injury I continued to use the OtterBox case for my Ipad as it was still functional after the initial drop. While carrying the tablet with the plastic shell cover attached to the rear, the tablet fell off of the "securely" attached cover and hit the floor once again. This time from a bit more height, and this time a bit more spider-web shattered glass. Now, the durability of Apple products is a different story completely, but this product does no good as a "Defender."
