The tabs on the back that you tuck the front cover into in order to set this up on its side? Yeah, those tabs are really stiff and firm, so it's hard to put the ipad up in "stand" mode.
The folder itself is of reasonably good quality material with good stitching. It will hold up to abuse for some time, I predict, and it didn't even have a funky smell or anything to it, as far as I could tell. It doesn't hold closed with magnets or velcro or anything, which is a bit of a bummer, but i may just get some hook-and-loop closures to make it do that. At the price this thing cost, I'm pretty okay with it not working perfectly.
If you want a very basic folder-cover for your ipad first gen, this will serve just fine.
Griffin makes quality cases, which this one is also. Durable.
The only downside are the two clips on the back which you use to slide the cover under when you use the case as a stand. Perhaps it is only because it is new, but they are stiff, and hard to slip the cover under.
It works just fine in two positions (vertical, and horizontal angled) when the cover is used with the clips in the back.
All iPad buttons are accessible, and again ...there is NO slipping. I have even shaken the iPad in the case and it is held solid. I'd also say that if the iPad were dropped in this case from a height of 4 feet, you'd scratch the case, but the iPad would be just fine probably 90% of the time.
This is definitely a Griffin case, and not a counterfeit. I wonder if the other reviewers did get a counterfeit as I cannot imagine they would complain about this case. I would guess this authentic Griffin case was around $40 to $50 a few years ago when the iPad 1 was new. This is far more durable than the cheap Apple case that came with the iPad 1 which was more like a skin.
So, to begin, I have an iPad 2. I put a screen protector and a skin on it for some extra protection. This case is sturdy enough to protect your ipad, but isn't super functional. My iPad slides around in the case, but it doesn't ever fall out, so that is good. However, because it slides around, I can never use the camera function without having to take my iPad out of the case. I've been using this now for about two months and the faux leather is starting to kind of bubble where the divet is to make the case stand on its own (next to the Griffin imprint). Another thing, this definitely doesn't stand on its own. I've tried it on all kinds of different surfaces and at different angles, and it's just not possible with this case.
I know this is critical of the product, but I actually like it. I just needed something to protect my iPad while it goes adventuring with me in my purse or backpack, and for that it is perfect. So, if you're needing a cheap, dependable case, go for it.
ALSO, I've never dropped my iPad, so I can't vouch how well it protects it if dropped.
I don't care for the dual tabs on the back which are meant to hold the cover in place when using the iPad. My previous similar folio from another manufacturer had only one, and it was much easier to use. You have to use both hands and twist the cover to get one side into the tab, then try to slide the other side into the other tab.
Then, sometimes the first one slides out. There isn't enough grip under the tabs to securely hold the cover in place. It tends to slide out.
But because of the low price, I am rating 3 stars.
