After my wife bought me an iPad and I cradled its sleek aluminum and glass body in my hands, I knew that finding a protective case for it was of paramount importance. But rather than jumping into the arduous task of researching the dizzying array of available iPad cases, I already had an idea where to look: OtterBox. My wife and I have both protected our iPhone 3GS's in the company's iPhone Defender cases for over a year and have been very happy with the results. Even after numerous accidental drops, our Defender-clad iPhones look like new underneath their "armor".

And fortunately, a quick check of the OtterBox web site revealed that the company did, in fact, offer a Defender series case for the iPad. Nearly ninety bucks and just over a week later, I am happy to report that OtterBox's Defender case for iPad is everything I had hoped it would be. At $89.95, this case is certainly one of the more expensive iPad case options available, but in my opinion, it is well worth the investment. I do have a minor quibble with the included instructions, but it is far outweighed by the product's overall quality, sheer durability, and style.

Contents:
The iPad Defender product includes a black high-impact polycarbonate shell, a separate black polycarbonate shield, a silicone outer skin, and a self-adhesive protective film. Other items include a microfiber cleaning cloth and a stiff scraper tool for applying the protective film to your iPad screen.

Packaging:
After opening the box, you find your Defender case nestled in a recyclable cardboard tray, along with a packet containing instructions and the other items included with the product. The utilitarian packaging does not quite provide the unboxing experience you'd have with an Apple product, but it suits its purpose well.

Let me start by saying that this is really a quality product. It feels very solid and ipad feels very secure in it. The fit is also excellent and the screen protector it comes with is good value. It feels like I have a one of those rugged laptops that you can abuse. I took it camping and felt at ease that no harm would come to my ipad. I also felt like that I didn't need to baby my ipad.

Now the problem with this is that this protection will make the ipad feel bulky and a little heavy espically if you are using it as ebook reader. One must keep this in mind. It's all about balancing protection and comfort. This case is definitely more towards the protection end.

The downside of this case is that the snap-off access for optional iPad dock doesn't come with a opening and closing flap for just the port itself.

Everytime one has to charge the ipad, the cover needs to be removed by sliding it out. This becomes annoying after awhile. This leaves an area of the ipad exposed if it happens to fall. Also, even though there is a felt lining inside the cover, I feel sometimes that there is plastic to ipad contact. I need to put it back on slower so it just touches the felt. Why do I do I need to slide it off everytime when I just need access to the port?

I have been waiting for this case to come out and finally it arrived. It was easy to assemble, fits the ipad like a glove, and looks great. I love the stand built into the snap off cover, great angle for watching movies or surfing the internet. I no longer have to worry when my 3 year old wants to watch a movie or play a game, my ipad is PROTECTED!!!!

I am the type of person who believes every gadget should have adequate protection...at least from my clumsy hands :). I had an Otterbox case years ago for my BB Pearl and remembered they were a good brand. Before buying the case, I used one of those silicon rubber cases that only protects the back and sides (barely) that I purchased with the iPad for $40. A few months later I tried a folio-type case, but it was too obstructive. After a few returns to Best Buy, I finally waited somewhat patiently for this case.

People who criticize the iPad for it's price are crazy, because I've paid $40 for a case that offers 1/8 of the protection the Otterbox provides. I thought it was a steal for $50 bucks, considering it MSRP's for $90.

I will admit, the Otterbox is one beastly case, but I am a big guy so lugging an extra 1-1/2 pounds is nothing. I can see how some people, primarily women, are turned off by the case. It isn't attractive, either, so stylistas beware. I love the fact I can cover the screen when not in use, and that the stand lets me watch movies while sitting on an airplane.

Before buying the case, I used an InvisiShield for the screen only, which was a huge mistake. The texture on the protector was awful, whereas the Otterbox screen guard felt natural, comparable to the iPad's original surface.

I'm not the best person at putting things together, hence having a couple screws left over from my Ikea furniture, but the Otterbox was easy to take on and off. Again, nothing too complicated, just take your time and do it right the first time. Dust clings to the iPad like a magnet, so use compressed air to remove the particles before sliding it in. The silicon tabs are a P.I.A., but work your way around the chassis slowly for maximum results.
