Color: Black/Black
This is a strong, solid case for my iPad mini. I particularly like the way the ports are protected with substantial but flexible covers. All the parts fit very snugly. The product is quite protective of the iPad and I have no concerns about traveling with it everywhere.

It was hard to assemble the Survivor's screen cover onto the rest of the case, until I figured out the solution. The cover has tabs that fit into slots and tightly grip the case. I discovered that by using a fingernail to very slightly and temporarily bend the tabs open, they snap into place perfectly.

My Survivor came with a small card that illustrated how to assemble the case. The illustrations are small; there is almost no verbal instruction, it has no pointer to helpful web resources, and the card could not easily be used because it was obscured by another card filled with legalese.

Both were stuck inside the case, visible through the screen cover, but the user has to open the case to retrieve them. And it's not clear how to open the case.

I complained about this to Griffin and they pointed me to an instructional video. It is required viewing. But user testing should have revealed the inadequacy of the small printed card. Even getting the case out of its oddly shaped and tightly assembled cardboard box and plastic insert was harder than it should have been. Please, more usability testing!

Apple has officially stated that the iPad mini screen has a special coating that wears off with usage. The Survivor screen cover probably reduces or prevents such wear. I found no reduction in screen responsiveness from using the screen cover.

Clean hands and a cleaning cloth are necessary when assembling the screen, as shown in the Griffin video. But once the entire assembly was complete, I was very satisfied.

I ordered this for my new iPad mini. It was easy to put on and provides great protection for the device. I was disappointed in the screen protector part, however, since it had small "rainbow" spots on it in various areas and scratched very easily. I had been careful not to wipe it with anything abrasive but there were scratches on it within the first week of use. The rainbow spots were very distracting as well. I contacted Griffin via their email contact form on their website, to find out if I could replace just the screen protector portion of the case. To my surprise, I received a reply back within a day apologizing and saying that I must have received a defective unit. The said they would send me out an entire new case and that I didn't need to send the old one back. I replied back with their requested information ( a couple of pictures of the problem) and heard back within the hour! As promised, they've sent me the new case and this screen protector does not have the rainbow spots and so far hasn't scratched at all. It even feels more sturdy than the one that came with the first case. I am totally impressed with Griffin's customer service. It is no doubt, the best I've seen for an Internet purchase, in a really long time! Highly recommend this case and Griffin as a company. I will definitely look at their products first in the future.

I purchased this case for work, in which I would use it outside at times and wanted a case that was both easy to grip and would be protected from the elements.

As far as the case itself, it fits like a glove. Very snug. I have not dropped my new mini, but it gives the impression that it would be well protected if I did as the corners and edges are covered with soft rubber.

The camera flap is difficult to open if you do not have something to pry it with. It's soft rubber and just doesn't give you enough grip to get it to release with just your fingers at times. I kept a pen cap with me to pop it open when needed.

The screen is another story, though. Even after treating it with great care, the screen protector still shows some scratches - including one small one right out of the packaging at the top that distorts where your web addresses show. Makes me wonder how it will look after a year. It has only been a week.

The screen protector does not fit 100% flush against the mini's screen, so at times you have to press a little harder than normal to get a response. This is not so noticeable in the center, but much more noticeable at the edges. Very frustrating if you use a stylus for certain programs & have to press hard to get it to work.

I have a note taking app, and you either have to press down harder than normal or risk your lines skipping.

I will probably end up returning. If it weren't for the screen protector, this case would get 4 stars (lost one for the camera flap)

With a touch screen device as easy to use as this one, it takes some of the fun out of using it - but it sure does protect it.

I purchased the ipad mini griffin survivor case, unfortunately that is not what I received. I got a very cheap imitation. I am hoping that I will receive a refund quickly. If you want the real deal, you should look somewhere else wondering why I have to give it any stars at all...

This isn't going to read like a one-star review at first, but stick with me for a few sentences. I bought the Survivor for my iPad Mini to protect it against the elements as I use it to call plays for my son's youth football team. In terms of protection and durability the Griffin Survivor is exactly as advertised. Right out of the package the materials used in the construction of the outer shell are clearly very high quality. Once assembled with my iPad inside the unit feels very solid, though certainly adding bulk to the iPad as one would expect. The case even passed its first drop test off the roof of my Jeep (yep, stupid by me) with flying colors.

Now the deal breaker: The clear screen cover causes horrible rainbow effects when assembled against the glass of the iPad. My first thought was perhaps some manufacturing residue, no big deal, some warm soap and water... Nope still there. Ah, maybe I didn't really clean my iPad screen and it is some oil from my fingertips that is being spread thin. Cleaned both screen and protective film again. Still rainbows... And now after using nothing but soft cloths, hand soap, and windex the cover is showing a ton of micro scratches. Maybe I'm particular, but I didn't buy an iPad to look at a distorted image. I'll continue to use the cover for protection during football games but I'll be switching out to my flip cover after each game, something I had hoped not to do.
