Like it so much, I am buying a spare!
on May 8, 2013
Very rugged, sleek looking cover -- especially for eight bucks. Other reviewers have stated this case is bulky, and it is definitely not thin. But this also means its not flimsy. Can't tell you how much my iPad is tossed around and this thing really protects it. I have also seen some reviews that stated the cover is warped on arrival. Yep, it bows outward, but you can bend it back the other way and it will remain flat after that. I think the inner material used to stiffen the front cover is actually plastic, because it feels harder than cardboard. To straighten mine out, I opened it up and put the front cover on my kitchen counter, put a hand towel over top of the vinyl surface and ironed it with a warm (not hot) iron and some heavy pressure. It has been flat as a board ever since. Even that is not enough to make me give it less than five stars. As a matter of fact, I am buying a second one just in case the one I have now starts to wear out. Sooner or later I am going to have to replace my trusty old 1st gen. iPad. Since the iPad 1 fits in this so snugly, I am hoping this case will also fit one of the newer versions as well.
