Targus Vuscape for iPad® 3
Standing Up for Protection

Your iPad is more than a multimedia tablet – it’s a portable theater, a radio, a means to connect with others. Vuscape is more than your average case. It’s lined with a premium, soft-to-the-touch interior material that protects your iPad from scratches. Vuscape is the thin and light solution for the everyday iPad user.

Multiple Viewing Angles

Whether you’re sitting on a long flight or looking to get work done while in transit, using your iPad to watch a movie or type an email has never been easier. The Vuscape easily converts to three different viewing angles and a fourth sturdy typing angle for your comfort. Perfectly angled and positioned, the fourth angle keeps the iPad stable when typing on screen.

Precision-Cut Camera Opening

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but are you tired of having to take your iPad out of the case when taking a picture? The Vuscape has a precision-cut camera hole that prevents shadowing when taking pictures with your iPad for clear, unobstructed images. So capture pictures that last a lifetime with ease.

This case fits the new iPad very well and is very well constructed, but the wake / sleep function which is listed as a feature does not work. There is a magnet in the cover but it appears to be either in the wrong location or facing the wrong direction. I would have given this case 3 stars despite the fact that this feature doesn't work if it hadn't been for tatgus' poor customer service. I contacted them about my problem with the case and was told that they were aware of it and would contact me when they had a resolution. Or, I could just return the case. I have not received any follow up emails from targus. Seems to me that if you are aware of a problem with a product you would at least contact a customer and let them know that they haven't just been ignored. I will be returning this case.

Targus has responded to my service request and informed me that they will be sending me an updated case in a few weeks. Hopefully the new case will work as advertised.

I got this case because I wanted a slim but protective case for my new generation iPad. This case fits easily in my purse without adding too much bulk. I also wanted one that has a cover over the screen. I ordered the pink color called Callypso, but it looks more like coral. It's pretty but I was expecting it to look more pink to match my pink Targis stylus. As for fit, I saw other people saying it did not fit the new iPad, but I found it to fit fine, and the magnetic "sleep" feature also works well. There is a trick to putting it on though, you bend the case at the crease and slide the iPad into the four right- side prongs, then straighten the case and snap the two left corners onto the two left corners do the iPad. It's simple, but if you just try to force it in, you would be disappointed. I recommend this case for anyone who wants a lighter but still protective ( of both front and back), of iPad to carry in your purse. P.S., you can access the camera while the cover is on, another good feature. :)

I love Targus products but am sorely disappointed with this case. I too am having issues with the magnets and after one day of use the stitching is fraying. I'm glad to hear that Targus is standing by the product and issuing replacements. I'll be calling them tomorrow.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this iPad Case. My conclusion was that there is no such think as the perfect case for all things you may want to do with your iPad. Here is a list of what you might want a case, and how this case stacks up to meeting that need:

PROTECT YOUR IPAD FROM DROPS: This case will not provide much protection from drops. It "might" help a little, but if you want a heavy duty protector, you need to look elsewhere. This would not be a good case for those with young children who want to use their iPad. The corners are "protected" but again, I would not put any money on my iPad NOT breaking if it was dropped on a corner.

PROTECT YOUR IPAD FROM SCRATCHES: This case is perfect for protecting the glass from scratches. Once the top is closed, nothing can scratch it.

NOT ADDING BULK OR WEIGHT: This case really meets this need. It is lightweight and doesn't add much bulk (width) or weight. I like this case a lot because it fits in my larger purse easiliy in the center part, and allows me to take where ever I go. If you are looking for a light weight case, this one is it.

ATTRACTIVENESS: I love how this case looks. Very chic and professional. The black leather is very attractive. I like how they cut the circle out of the back so you can still see the Apple icon on the back, which is why you bought such an expensive piece of equipment, right?

ABILITY TO PROP UP TO WATCH MOVIES: Their unique prop design is very slick and works like a charm. I thought at first that disconnecting the iPad from the case on the bottom two "connectors" again and again would loosen it's grasp and eventually the case would be loose.

We bought two of these last Sunday (one week ago) from Best Buy for our new iPads. While we like the case overall, there are some issues.

The stitching on these is terrible. On one of the two cases, the stitching has already started unravelling and has about 4 inches loose. The other case looks like it will start to unravel at any moment. I took the one case back today and looked at a dozen in the store and they all show the same problem with poor stitching in the bottom left hand corner of the front.

To further compound the problem, on the dozen that I looked at only 5 would turn the iPad on/off via the magnet. While this is a known issue, it is surprising that they are still selling them this way.

I was going to upgrade to the Slim Case for $10 more but none of these would auto turn on/off. While this is not really a big deal (how hard is it to press a button?) it is the principal that caused me to just get a refund.

The lack of quality from Targus is really surprising, but I will be looking for something else for our new iPads.
