I received my iPad 2 Defender Series case today and I must state that I am very disappointed at the quality and so called "ruggedness". I have an OtterBox for my iPad (1st Gen), iPhone 4, old iPhone 3GS and every one of my family members cell phones and have never had an issue with paying the price for the superior quality and protection, this time I feel ripped off. From the flimsy 'polycarbonate' case, to the thin silicone cover this is at most an average product for a premium price. Every port cover on this is flimsy, does not seat well and creates a vulnerable point in the event of a 'mishap', not to mention that the top and bottom of the polycarbonate case is so flimsy that it feels as though it will snap off if handled wrong. Oh, and whats up with how fat this case is when the cover is on, it's thicker than my iPad 1st Gen in its Defender Series case, kind of defeats one of the selling points of the product they are attempting to protect... Up to this point I have been a huge fan, supporter, and endorser of your OtterBox and their products, this however, has really soured my opinion, especially given the wait for the release... What a let down!

First off I'd like to say I love otterbox products my family swears by outer box cases for all are cell phones (2: Blackberry curve's, iPod classic, iPod nano, first gen iPhone, 3GS iPhone, first gen iPad, and now iPad 2 all have defender series) I would highly recommend any of otterbox cell phone and the FIRST gen iPad cases. (Note that when it came to the iPads I only recommended the first gen. And hears why.

When you were a kid was there ever something new that came out you wanted so bad you'd do anything to get it. But you had wait for it to come out in stores or wait until Christmas and finally the day comes and you get it, but after a few minutes you relies it doesn't function exactly as it appeared in an ad you seen on TV, magazine, or internet and it really disappointed you to the point it makes mad, sad all at the same time like someone is ripping your hart out. Well that's how I felt after I put my new case on my iPad 2. It's like the designers of the new iPad 2 case were trying to come up with a completely reengineered case that incorporated new features... Why did they completely redesign it? Looking at all our other defender cases we have around the house, they all have vary similar characteristics and function. Except the defender case for ipad2 Like they all have a.....

1: holster or cover that completely covers the entire screen (NOT on the iPad 2 case. All four corners of the iPad 2 screen are exposed.)

2: the covers that go over the dock connector and headphone jack are secured in a way that they are not accidentally flipped out when you don't want them opened. (NOT so on iPad 2 case. No matter how I hold it every protective cover becomes knocked lose vary vary easily and just flops around.

Hey Folks,
I have not written very many reviews. But as Josh stated I have seen the bashing of this product and just have to weigh in. I have both versions of the OtterBox the first version for the iPad was terrific and I loved it. It protected my iPad from everything I could throw at it. The only problems I experienced with it were the buttons were really hard to control due to the actual size of the cover. This is the protection I am paying for so we deal with that as being a safety feature. It did in fact do its job better than my book bag or the standard cover that sells with the iPad and the iPad 2. The original version is very bulky and not really complementary to the device that resides within its protection; however it accomplished what it claims and protected my iPad from damage. The look I really liked and gave my iPad a look and feel complementary to a man on the move. If you're an office type this might be a bit over kill. If you travel the world and get dirty then this is the protection you're looking for.
I can tell you from my personal experience there are not too many folks that could put this bad boy through tests I have. I live and work In Baghdad Iraq. This thing has literally been through a war and it has not failed me yet. The redesigned size and feel of the latest version is very complementary to the iPad 2. Everything works and is right where they need to be. The rubber used to cover the ear phones and the USB jack does feel lose but they 100% do their job in protecting what is inside and that's the most important thing to remember. The redesign of the USB plug area is perfect. The first version left a very large gaping location for the plug to fit. When you removed it you always had to keep positive control not to forget it or lose it. This version works perfect.

This unit is quite a disappointment. Such a disappointment, that I'm taking the time to write my first ever product review to express my displeasure. I've owned Otterbox defender cases for my iPhone and first gen iPad, and they were both great. So much so, that I waited to cover my iPad 2 until the defender was released. Boy am I regretting that decision. The original iPad cover had a nice hard case that covered the entire iPad, including across the black parts of the screen. The entire exterior was well protected, especially with the hard cover case that went across the entire front of the screen. Between the perfectly sized screen protector and exterior shell, the entire ipad felt as secure as you could possibly get it

The Otterbox defender for iPad 2 does not instill confidence that it will protect your extremely expensive hardware. First, it includes no screen protector. It's true that you can purchase one separately, but it would have been much easier on the consumer to include it (especially considering how much the unit costs $50+). Second, the plastic used seems flimsy, like it will crack as easily as the screen. The exterior isn't one solid piece, because they created flaps this time to access things like the charging port and headphone plug. The flaps do not stay closed, and leave a thin piece of flimsy rubber to supposedly protect with. The plastic exterior case no longer covers the black part of the screen, and the cover has funky cuts outs in the four corners that expose the screen.

With my old Otterbox, I felt completely safe letting my 2 year old nephew tote it around. With this new unit, I'm almost afraid to carry it around myself for fear that something will definitely break if I drop it.
