Untested so far.........UPDATE: GARBAGE
on February 21, 2012
I wanted something to protect my Ipad2, not just a cutesy cover. Very happy so far with the Otterbox Reflex. However no one has dropped my IPad yet, so it has not been given the full test. The Ipad2 fits snugly inside the Reflex case, the top folds neatly into a stand when not in use as a shield for the front of the pad. Very easy to assemble and very easy to remove the top protector and convert to the mutipositional stand. The Reflex gives the IPad2 a good weight, making it easier to grip, although some people might say that it makes the IPad heavy, I prefer this, as i found the Ipad2 a little to light weight. Now I don't have to worry when the grandchildren grab my I pad2 and my children are in the process of ordering or have purchased recently for their own IPad2s. I believe that the Reflex is only available to fit the Ipad2, which is too bad. A must have, and highly recommend.
UPDATE. This product did not last a year , split around the edges and fell apart, purchased one for my daughter and the same thing happened to hers, cannot be a coincidence. (I am a grandmother, so it was gently used). Contacted Otter Box as they were under warranty, ran into major issues with their customer service, who requested photo's of the broken pieces, as well as all the other purchase information (which is understandable) but would reply with the same generic letter requesting the same information over and over again. Finally after a month of submitting the requested information, 7 times for each item, plus having to be quite rude, i eventually got a supervisor who replaced them. Now I must add that the replacements are totally different from the originals, so it's possible that a lot more people had problems with them, and they had to make a major design change. The item does feel a lot sturdier than before, but won't know how it holds up, until owned for a while, I am hesitant to recommend, after my experience, but I believe there is not a lot of choice for a "good" protector on the market. Only time will tell, how this new one will hold up, but have dropped the once five stars to one for the time being,
