Lasted 4 years and 7 months. One of the Best with Built in Screen Protectors.

Lasted 4 years and 7 months.
Now the plastic is deteriorating, but it's served it's purpose. Less than $10/year insurance is the way i look at it..
4 falls, that i can remember, on Tile from about 2-3 feet. One that bounced end over end, for about 12 feet. It never fell perfectly flat, but pretty close. I thought the IPAD was done for a few times.
Ipad in this Griffin case falling off tall bed on to carpet was an annoyance, rather than a worry.
***Nothing is going to be 100%, but compared to the rest, this is at the top.
Under 5 year old Kid spilled milk, juice and water on it. A few times i would carry it to the sink and dump the liquid that was collected on the screen.
BBQ finger, and other food smears not a big deal with this case. Most of the time, just take a wet wipe and clean the screen on the surface...maybe use a q-tip every now and then. I only took Ipad2 completely out of the case to clean, maybe a couple times a year.
- The bottom charger tab will not last long...but wasn't a problem for us.
- The picture quality will be deteriorated a little, but not too bad with the built in screen protector. Would not even notice until i took the Ipad out of the case to clean a couple times a year. Without this built in screen protector we would have a brick.
- When taking apart a few times a year to clean, I used a small flat tool to pry, which made it a piece of cake. I think i got apart the case with fingers once or twice, but much easier for me with small tool...maybe credit card would work too.
***i am looking today 8/15/2016 and all the cases except this one and KidsPr don't seem to protrude that far in the front, and have the included built in screen protector. With a screen protector that you stick on, it doesn't stop the liquid from getting around the corners.
I am probably going to give the KidsPr case a try, because it comes in different colors and the Pink one of this case doesn't have prime.
Here's a link to the one i am going to try out.
***Bye the way the Ipad 2 looks brand new, just a little bare while waiting for its new home.
