Otterbox -- Failed to meet my previous experience.
on February 15, 2013
I've used Otterbox products before on cellular devices, and could not be more pleased in the past. With the recent purchase of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" I thought that with two adults and two kids fighting over it this would be an easy purchase. I feel as if I was wrong, and that it didn't meet my previous experience with this brand.
Pros-- Seems to be protective, though I am not about to do drop tests to see.
Sleek for the bulkiness.
Cons-- HEAVY. Like galactic super cluster of stars heavy.
Bulky. Too much to ask for form and function?
The inside of the screen protector had micro-debris that could have scratched the table and needed a good cleaning before install. Had to use patience and a q-tip.
Stand is poorly made. Wears out quickly, especially with the weight load that is upon it.
Screen protector casts a glare, impedes touch responsiveness, and makes it hard to clean on the inside should dust or particles find their way there.
Overall, Otterbox still remains as the major source of protection, but this product seems to have room for improvement and design enhancement.
