Works Just As I Had Hoped
on May 10, 2011
This is nothing fancy - It's merely a "pocket" to slide your iPad 2 in and out of when you need it for road trips. It attaches to your seat via the black strap you see in the picture...it's really quite simple. The iPad's buttons, speaker grill, and camera are all available when installed. The iPad slides in and out very easily with little effort. When mounted, the only way the iPad will fall out of this case is if your vehicle turns upside down - As you can see in the picture, one side of the case is open with no means to close it. Personally, I don't plan on flipping my car so this is a non-issue for me. I also like that I can easily take the iPad in and out of the case will minimal effort, because I only need this mount for infrequent road trips (maybe a couple times a month).
Not yet pictured is the front of the case, which covers the entire black (or white) bezel when in use. There is no plastic screen protector built into this case, which I wouldn't want anyway. And again, the home button and camera are accessible as you'd expect.
I rate this product 5 stars because it's simple and it works. Installation of the mount to the car is easy and physically putting the iPad into the case is a breeze. If you use a very thin shield on your iPAd 2 like the Incipio Feather, you do not need to remove that prior to using the CinemaSeat; it'll fit fine. Much thicker than that though and you may start running into problems. Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone in need of a simple vehicle headrest mount. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
