Size: For Apple iPad MiniColor: Clear Verified Purchase
This is a very good case, and an excellent value for the price. It fits well. One corner was a tiny bit funky, but I found that inserting that corner first works just fine. All the cutouts are spot on and there are no gaps anywhere. Really, it does fit perfectly, just a little tricky to snap on (and off). As someone else noted, it's hard plastic, but not brittle. It's somewhat flexible and does have a grippier feel than the aluminum back. I'm only taking one point off because there were a few very small sharp edges (from the mold), but I scraped/filed them off in a few minutes and now it's completely smooth.

Also, one concern I had was whether the corners would extend above the screen. They don't. They're perfectly flush with the screen (it grips on the chamfered sides), making it easy to wipe off the screen and doesn't interfere with the Smart Cover.

Wow! Here's some welcome pain relief for your wallet after taking a $40 beating on the purchase of Apple's official iPad Mini Smart Cover. (Funny how the "mini" part never translated to the price.) It's Poetic's high quality clear hardshell back cover that delivers tight tolerance perfection that even Steve Jobs would approve... and costs less than six bucks, with shipping included! Here are the reasons you want this case:

1) Absolutely perfect, glove-like fit as the four corners snap snugly but easily into place. Flawless alignment of various slots and holes with iPad Mini functions.

2) Adds no bulk and near zero weight to the iPad Mini while still providing superior scratch protection.

3) Totally seamless integration with the Smart Cover, which functions as well and exactly the same as it does without the Poetic back cover. And neither cover interferes with removal or attachment of the other.

4) High quality plastic with superb clarity, so the iPad still looks "naked," plus this case haa a good feel in the hand.

Bottom line: if you're a Smart Cover user looking for perfect back case protection that adds almost nothing to your Mini, then your search ends here and for far less money than you might have imagined.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review and I hope you found it helpful in making a buying decision.

I wasn't expecting much when I ordered this due to the price. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for, but I can tell you that in this case (pun intended) you get more than your money's worth. Fits perfect and allows my Smart Cover to be on as well. Only negative is that the Smart Cover no longer magnets to the back when you open it.

This is the ipad mini case I've always been looking for. The fitting fits perfectly the material is what I expected to be. I love it and will be ordering some more. The surface of the ipad mini and the back case cover' corner is perfectly level, there is no overlapping on the screen. By far #1 back case cover for ipad mini. Take my words for it, coming from a guy that is very anal and picky with products. Click here to view the video: [...]

I wanted something that would add some protection for my iPad Mini without adding bulk, and this case is perfect. It snaps on, fits tightly, and all the bits you need to get to are accessible. I have a smart cover and it doesn't interfere at all with that. It is so unobtrusive that I actually forget the iPad has it on. It is not something that's designed to provide protection from drops, spills, etc -- it protects the back cover from scuffs and scratches-- although I imagine it provides a little protection from minor bumps as well since it's very hard and sturdy.

There are so many cases for the iPad Mini now, many of them fairly cheap. I've purchased a few. Some have beek too heavy, too bulky, not protective enough, didn't work with the smart cover, etc.

But this ThinShell is perfect and for the price, really can't be beat if you own a smart cover. It's thinner than the Switcheasy Coverbuddy and feels less bulky. The Coverbuddy covers all the buttons, making them hard to press a little bit. Some people like this feature so it's subjective. The ThinShell leaves the buttons exposed for easy access and works perfectly with my SmartCover. It's a hard cover so I doubt it offers much in terms of drop protection but it does make the Mini a little "grippier" making it easier to hold IMO. It's exactly what I wanted.

By far, the Poetic ThinShell's are the best iPad Mini covers on the market. The price is insanely reasonable for a product that is extremely durable and very attractive. The best of the ThinShell's is the Frost White because you don't ever have to worry about cosmetic damages (the Clear ones are very strong and attractive but they scratch very easily). These look fabulous with the mini smart covers. This and the Poetic Atmosphere case are the best cases for the Mini's in my opinion. Get it and get the Griffin Technology GB36186 TotalGuard AntiGlare Screen Protector. Protect your iPad like a baby!

The Smart Cover alone for the iPad mini was, frankly, quite disappointing. Alone, it fell off too easily, shifted too much and just didn't feel safe. This partner shell for the back saves the iPad mini Smart Cover. It fits snug and snapped on easily.

I tried several other cover combos, but this is my favorite for several reasons:

First, it goes on over the Smart Cover magnetic strip, actually securing it much better than the magnet strip alone (you actually have to remove the shell to remove the Smart Cover).

Second, since it secures the Smart Cover so well, it allows it to function much more like the full sized ipad Smart Cover. Note that he shell, though, is thick enough that the magnetic Smart Cover will no longer stick to the back.

Third, this shell has a great feel, kind of rubbery, but very soft and smooth. I combined the red with the grey Smart Cover and, being in OSU Buckeye territory, have gotten rave reviews.

This is the thinnest and lightest way to fully protect the iPad mini and I love it.
