Ipad2 case - turquoise
on January 8, 2013
I've had this case for six months now and used it daily. The iPad has had a few minor drops and with this case on it has survived just fine. The color and texture of the case are very nice. Functionality of the 'holder' is why I gave this three stars... In portrait mode I can only use the last ridge and in landscape mode only the first/closest ridge - otherwise the iPad slips out toward me or falls over backwards. In the last month or so I have noticed significant cracking and weakening in the bend, which is not surprising given how much this is opened and closed each day. There are also cracks forming in the coating on the part that actually holds the ipad in the case, which right now is only cosmetic but when it worsens may affect the ability to keep holding the iPad in the case. The swivel feature is very nice, and all buttons and features are easily accessed. The band to keep it closed works great! Overall a good case for the money (<$12). I may buy one again when this one fails.
UPDATE: It's now July, so I've been using this case for about a year! Yep, it's still cracking, and the rubberized part that holds the iPad in the case is peeling, but the iPad still stays safely inside. Overall the outside still looks fine front and back, it's only the side/bend that is showing significant wear. If you like things pristine, this is not the case for you. If you want an inexpensive case that will help protect your iPad, this is a good choice. I get compliments on the color and texture all the time.
