I was at first considering the Otter Box, but after reading reviews on the iPad2 version, I had my doubts that it would have the ruggedness I wanted. And it really isn't that attractive. I also would have had to install Ghost Armor or something to protect the screen - a process that would have kept me from using my new toy for an additional 24-48 hours above the shipping time for all the protective iPad gear. Not acceptable. I have not noticed any loss of touch response from the built in screen cover either. The Survivor is also pleasant to look at. Sure, it's not purple (everything should be available in my favorite color) but it has an elegance to its slight bulk - like the beautiful muscular definition of a dancer.
The included snap on is plenty functional. I was at first worried that, like every case other than the Otter Box, it would require a desk to be functional. Needless to say, as a stay-at-home mom, I am rarely at a desk. With the stand popped open I can still rest it on my lap and type easily. Case in point: I am currently sitting on the bed next to my daughter as she falls asleep. I have not any any trouble using the buttons or accessing any ports with this case, even though they are all completely covered.
Sadly, it does have its faults. It is not ideal for photographers on the go as the camera connection kit does not fit the plastic framing around the connection port.Read more ›
I like this device, just not as bad as I really would like to; the plastic screen shield on it seriously detracts from its utility. Before writing this review I waited a few extra days to let my finger grease coat the screen shield, hoping to enable a smoother interfacing, however still no differance! my finger gets caught from the friction produced by the shield and finger. That is one thing otterbox always did well on was it screen guards. Besides the texture, the screen guard sits on top of the screen to high, creating an "air pocket" sensation. The texture and air pocket serious affects game playing and seriously hampers the ipad experience (finger on smooth glass). Even after a week of usage, both these issues are still very annoying.
Another issue with this product is its stand. Simply, it sucks. It falls over very easily and you cannot use it to set the ipad up in portrait mode. I leave the stand off to lessen the overall weight.
BTW the material used has the same "toughness" of otterbox's OtterBox Defender Series Hybrid Case for iPad 2 (APL2-IPAD2-20-E4OTR).
This prodcuts shortcomings wont prevent me from recommending it, but I will suggest that the MSRP of $70 is WAY to high, $50 is what I would consider its price ceiling (Ipad $42 for mine).
UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!! after about 4-6 weeks of use my suspicious are true, the dock connector's rubber flap is junk!!! its tearing, its very thin and gets alot of use (usb sync cable). Bummer..Ill still leave it rated as 3-star item, but in order to get my money's worth I think an item like this should last at least a year!!!Read more ›
I tried out the Gumdrop for two weeks before the Griffin for another two weeks. Both cases feel strong and grippy and have built-in screen protectors. The lack of a built-in screen protector on the Otterbox Defender - which is included in all the other Defender series cases except this one - ruled it out for me. Griffin and Gumdrop weigh about the same as far as I can tell and both feel like they would be equally protective against damage from impact.
These are my findings:
- The tabs covering the different ports are very strong and thick. You feel like they're really doing something. I like that. The speaker and cameras are not covered, unlike the Griffin with tabs covering each, but I don't envision submerging my iPad underwater as much as I see it being dropped or thrown onto the floor so the lack coverage over those areas doesn't bother me.
- The thick tab covering the headphone jack prevents my L shaped earphone cord from going in all the way. I discovered this at the gym, to my embarassment. I either have to get new earphones (I'm not likely to replace my etymotic earbuds anytime soon), or get an adapter for them.
- The case smells VERY strongly of tire rubber which did not dissipate even after two weeks. Oddly, it actually looks like a tire.Read more ›
