4.0 out of 5 stars Decent iPad Mini Case November 7, 2012
By Roger
Color Name:Gray|Verified Purchase
I like the feel of the case, it's soft and grippy, yet still attaches firmly. As others have mentioned, the case is not exactly the same, the long thin strip at the bottom is in danger of ripping off. I would have liked this product better if it was as advertised. I've uploaded a few pictures of the actual shipped product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Decent Case for Mini November 6, 2012
Color Name:Frost|Verified Purchase
This is the second case we tried for our newly purchased white iPad mini- the first one from ebay was thicker and opaque. This one from i-Blason is thinner and more translucent. We returned the first one mainly because the iPad mini could not be charged or synced with the case on - we had to remove the bottom edge of the case - the opening for the new lightning cable connector was too small. It would also not fit in the dock with the case on, but that may not be possible with ANY case. This one allows charging and syncing, and is nice and thin, so it doesn't make the iPad mini too bulky. The only thing they could improve on a bit is transparency. It is not as clear as I wished. Grip is good though. It works as advertised, and is a good deal for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALMOST perfect November 10, 2012
Color Name:Gray|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of TPU cases for a few years now. Yeah, its prettier to put the ipad in a nice folio or cool retro case but nothing beats holding comfort of a light and *grippy* tpu case. I use them on my nook tablet and iphones as well. The Blason tpu case feels more high quality than any i've bought before, the material is sturdy and soft to touch. Not mushy, just soft, like good quality plastics in VW's. I only have two minor problems (one more minor than the other). First the bottom cutout was made large enough to accommodate the new placement of the speakers as well as the tiny lightning port which is obviously Apples design choice. BUT, since they cut out a continous strip on such a tiny frame, i keep thinking its going to rip along the thin strip holding the bottom together around the speakers/port. I might suggest cutting out three individual holes so that there is vertical support along the cutouts.

THe second is the reason i really gave it four and almost three. Yes, it feels high quality and fits perfect, but it doesn't add ANY real grippiness. THe whole reason i buy tpu cases. When compared to my nook tablet one or my iphone one this case is downright slick. I wont go so far as to say its just as smooth as the ipads actual back (which is dangerously frictionless) but it doesn't make my fingers grip the back with any significant ease compare to uncovered.

Its a bummer, i really wanted to love this case, it feels so well made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as pictured. November 6, 2012
By Anthony
Color Name:Gray|Verified Purchase
I got this TPC case and I am mostly pleased with it.

I like that it has a lip around the borders on the screen side of the iPad mini. It provides a good grip for the tablet, too. It doesn't had much weight to the device, with is important to me. The price is good. I actually got mine before I got the mini, too, so that is good.

My main gripe is that what I received this not what is shown in the pictures. On the end where the lightning connector is, mine has a cut slot that exposes the connector and the two speakers on either side. Just one long slot of removed material to give access to the port and to let the sound from the speakers get out. On the screen side there is a long skinny strip of material that should protect the end of the mini. Well, in the pictures you see not one long slot but three slots, with two little strips of material connected around the lightning connector. I think I'd rather have what is shown because on this model on my the skinny strip of material that runs along the border on the screen side moves a lot...and I'm afraid the device may get scratched because this strip will not protect the device well. Those to little strips around the lightning connector might help hold the border strip in place.

My other minor gripes are 1) lots of finger prints show on the back, and 2) it seems to be a tiny bit off in the fit, so you have to fiddle with it to make the perimeter lip extend to the same height all around the device.

I would give this a 5/5, though, if it has better border protection near the lightning connector. Nothing is perfect and I bought this mainly for protection (looks are important too, but not as much as protection).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good protection December 1, 2012
Color Name:Frost|Verified Purchase
I had originally purchased the Smart Cover compatible cover by accident, which I really like. It had the cutout for the Smart Cover which leaves that edge unprotected if it's not attached. I liked it because it was very thin and barely added any bulk at all. I also liked the grippy texture.

This one I'm not quite as impressed with. It is totally different from the Smart Cover compatible one. It is much thicker and has the slick texture which is not grippy and also picks up little dirt specks, which is annoying. Also, where the Smart Cover one has separate cutouts for the speakers and lightning connector, this just has one long cutout that look like it could easily tear.

One thing I do like is the edge is almost flush with surface of the screen which gives the appearance of less bulk, however the back is pretty thick, at least compared with the other one.

The reason I purchased this is because I liked the other so much and thought it would be the same but without the Smart Cover cutout on the side.

It's a fine cover that will do the job. It's just not what I expected. I plan to hang on to it for now, but I hope to fine something better.
