Best Value Anywhere.
on May 18, 2011
I did a lot of research before I purchased a case for my, and my husband's iPad 2s. The ONLY case that met all of our requirements was the iPearl case. I wanted it to be stylish, sturdy, and affordable. We also wanted an elastic hand strap on the back, and the ability to stand the iPad on the desk. I was prepared to spend up to $100.00 per case so that we would have all of the features. I didn't find any however, and was resigned to making something myself. I did one more marathon search however, and when I found the iPearl iPad 2 case, in my favorite color green no less, I was nearly ecstatic. The fact that they were so affordable and even included a stylus pen were extra bonuses. I ordered 2 of them - one for me in green, and one for my husband in black. Unbelievably, they arrived in only 4 days! After playing around with them for a day, I decided to order 2 more right away because things do wear out eventually, and I didn't want to chance them becoming unavailable for any reason. I ended up ordering 3 more because we are getting an iPad 2 for our son for his birthday.
A little more about the case: It fits the iPad 2 perfectly, with openings for all of the buttons, USB cable, and the camera. There is a loop to hold the stylus pen on top, and a thin elastic strap to hold the cover closed. The cover puts the iPad to sleep, and reawakens it when you open it. To make it stand up, you flip the cover backwards and fold out a flap that doubles as a credit card holder that will hold 2 cards. Instead of putting cards in the holder, I have put my microfibre cleaning cloth in one of them, and plan to tuck a small/thin note pad in the other. If you want to hold the iPad in your hand, the elastic hand strap on the back is wide, very durable, and comfortable. I have arthritis in my hands, and this strap makes holding the iPad painless. The cases themselves are very attractive in a textured leather-like material. I am picky about details, so I examined everything - even the stitching, and couldn't find one flaw. There is not one to complain about. I got green ones, and my husband and son got black ones. I'm thinking about a 3rd one - pink, so I can switch off now and then. The inner case is a soft gray fabric that will protect your screen from scratches. I'm absolutely thrilled with the iPearl iPad 2 case. This is the best value you are going to find anywhere.
