I only use this case around the house to take the sharp corners off of the iPad mini when I'm going to read or play games. If I kept my iPad mini at home it would probably live in this case. But because there is no protection for the glass I strip this guy off and use an Apple Smart Cover when the mini goes into my bag. However, it does have enough of a lip around the front so when you set the iPad face down and the screen won't touch the table, which is a big plus.

This case is easy to take off and put on & does no damage to in the process. I even have a DecalGirl sticker on the back of my mini and this case still fits easily (but isn't loose at all). I've had no problem operating any of the iPad's buttons, camera, or other ports so the cutouts, etc. have worked out fine.

I was kind of hoping it would be a little softer to the touch but I guess if you get a case that's too rubbery lots of lint & other junk stick to it making it hard to keep clean. This case doesn't have that problem - lint, etc. comes right off with a wipe or even simply blowing on it.

Overall a decent case that does what it's supposed to do.

This is a great case for the little iPad mini. The iPad mini is not the most sturdy of devices. It feels delicate. Knowing we were giving the device to our young children to use, we needed something to add some rigidity to the iPad mini. We've had great success with Ballistic cases, so this one seemed to meet our needs - plus it came in a fun color.

When it arrived, we were not disappointed. The case is sturdy, and even adds extra bumpers on the 4 corners. Most important to us is that it adds a raised edge for the screen, and the camera in the back. That way scratches can be avoided - even if the kids lay the device screen-side down.

The case fits perfectly. All ports, speakers, mics, and camera are accessible. The headphone jack permits all of the headphones I tried - included L shaped plugs.

On the downside, no included screen protector. Come on, case makers. Include them!

The case is a little too smooth. It has ridges on the bottom half to help with grip, but I typically hold the device higher up. And there are no ridges there. I also think the ridges would have been better served being vertical.

The case does have a cut out specific to the new iPad mini with Retina - it has a mic on the back panel. I wish it didn't have that cut out for the 1st generation iPad mini, but it's not that big of a deal.

And lastly, the bottom edge of the case (around the speakers and lightning port), is a little loose. Overall, the case is rigid, but in that location, it feels weak. I believe it is due to Ballistic wanting the case to be accessible to a variety of docks, but they could have run a strip from front to back in between the speaker and port. Maybe even a snap on piece, so those with docks could remove it if desired.

In any event, it is a great case, and we imagine it will serve us well. Of course, we don't want to toss the device around to really put the case to the test.

The rubber corner protectors are great, just like that on the larger iPad 2 Case they make - but that's where the good stops & the bad starts. The entire bottom edge of the iPad Mini 3 is left exposed from the left edge of the left speaker to the right edge of the right speaker. There are no supports that joi n the face lip to the rear of the case here, so one drop would cause the lip of the case to shift, negating any protection to the bottom of your device. All they had to do was change there mould slightly to add support in this area and there would be no problem

I have this style case for my iPhone, and I love it. So when I purchased an iPad, naturally, I wanted the same case. While I wasn't thrilled about the huge name on the back, I figured it was still worth it.

However, when I received the item, it had 2 major flaws.

1) The case has a cut-out at the bottom to allow access to the port and speakers. Along the front of the case, there is only a thin piece of material, while the back runs continuous to the back of the case. This thin front piece of material was not only flimsy, but it actually didn't conform to the shape of the iPad. This piece of plastic will most probably break in short order, leaving the bottom of the iPad exposed. This is unacceptable to me. On the iPhone, the same design doesn't affect the case, because the piece of plastic is so short that it doesn't even move. But on the iPad mini, it's just this wavy plastic bit waiting to break.

2) The case fits around the iPad mini Retina EXTREMELY tightly. I assume it's because this case was designed for the original iPad mini, which is just a tad thinner than the Retina version. It has the appropriate microphone cut-outs for the Retina version. But it was so tight, that it actually pulled up my screen protector on the bottom corners. Another deal-killer for me. If you have a glass screen protector on your iPad (either version), I would doubt that this would fit.

So all in all, I like the materials, the overall look, and the Ballistic case on my iPhone is superior quality and protection. However, in this version, the design just doesn't work. I'm returning mine. End of story.
