The problem however is getting it off. One corner snaps off fairly easily, but the other 3 don't budge at all. have had no luck. It is a hard case so slightly heavier/bulkier than others in the market - especially with the stand on attached.
Overall a strong/sturdy product, works as advertized, but would like to be able to take it off.
- must support iPad firmly in both landscape and portrait orientations, at several viewing angles
- must protect iPad corners and screen if accidentally dropped
- lightweight and not too bulky
- not too slippery
Price was not an object for me -- I would have spent whatever it took, even $100 or more, to get the ideal case. In fact, I was suspicious of this one because it's so incredibly cheap.
This product met all my specs. The slightly rubberized material isn't slippery, but doesn't attract lint. It has four positions in both landscape and portrait orientation, from a low position good for typing to a high position good for reading news at the breakfast table. It won't slide when you're typing or swiping. The case fits the iPad tightly and protects all four corners, but leaves the port, speaker, and controls fully accessible. It's simple to detach the stand from the cover. It's light and not terribly bulky, though any good cover will add some bulk.
As others have noted, the case fits VERY tightly and can be a bit hard to get onto the iPad. My solution was to shave away a small amount of the lip (the small protrusion that holds the iPad in place) at two corners. Someone else recommended sanding, but I used a box cutter. I shaved a little bit, tested, shaved some more, tested again, until I could pop the case on.
My other tip is that even with shaving it's still hard to get on, and you may worry about bending the iPad. So: put two corners on, then place the iPad face down on a table (with a tablecloth). Hold it so that one of the remaining corners extends off the table an inch or so, then press that corner of the cover into place.Read more ›
So the fix is:
Prior to insert the ipad, just get a thin sandpaper and sand the inside lips at the corners a bit, but just a little and try the ipad on 3 corners first, if it's still hard to take it out from the third corner, sand again, and once you do that you will notice that it will get inside fairly easy,and to take it off will be very easy also..
Hope this helps you.
using just a cover like the one from Apple. It's pretty convenient and has been working well so far when I travel. As the other reviewer
mentioned, the case does require just a bit of force to snap in but I think there was a way to do it easily with one side (side opposite of the volume control) sliding in first then snapping the other corners.
Once secured you don't have to worry about it falling out.
Overall a great case at an exceptional value when it's on sale.
