    Not thrilled.

    Absolutely not a premium case. Honestly I do not feel like this case is worth $45, more like $25 and let me tell you why. Firstly the cut outs on the clear back are slightly off. Secondly the bottom of the case where the charging port and speakers are is VERY flimsy. Enough so that when the cover is on it bows outward enough for the edge of the cover to become flush with the rubber. That is not acceptable for a case of this price range. I have a cheap $5 case on my iPod that fits to the device better than this one does. And lastly the stand is quite difficult to set up. Very often does the iPad fall down while typing in the upright position. Now to think of some pros for this case - the clear plastic back. Made if quite durable plastic I can't see getting scratched easily, and being translucent you can preserve your iPad branding and inscription on the back if you have one. Also the smart lock works must better than on most cases. Overall I may buy another. I am hoping that quality control is just sub-par and I got a lemon. I will have to see.

    Product of Lasting Quality

    I have been using this product for nearly a year. In that timeframe, it has protected my iPad beautifully! The appearance is very streamlined and the quality feeling of the front cover and back reinforcement are very high. It comes in three colors so everyone has a happy choice. I highly recommend this case!

    Sturdy, compact and secure - best out there!

    I have an iPad mini 2 and needed a case that would offer total protection without adding too much weight and bulk. This case is fantastic! Reassuringly it takes effort to get it on and off, the front cover wraps completely around the back and is secured with a strong magnet and the edges - especially the corners are thick and shock proof (tested to 26 drops from 4 feet by the manufacturer). I love the clear back panel as my inscription is still visible and it means theres no way the case is going to fall off.

    The case works really well as a stand to type against or when watching something. The magnet also helps here as well.

    The only thing I feel is a little misleading is the primary blue colour advertised. It's not, it's much more of a duller blue. I wanted a case that looked cheerful rather than corporate so I wish I'd chosen the red option now instead.

    Cannot use with a screen saver

    I thought I would upgrade my perfectly adequate ipad case to an STM Dux case for added safety for my iPad. It seems to offer a well fitting, robust case. However, when fitting the new case, my screen saver completely peeled off as the case is so snug around the edge of the iPad that there is no space even for a thin film in the form of a screensaver. I've wasted a pack of savers trying to fit them under the Dux case but it's impossible - they will always be peeled off by the case. Such a pity that I have to choose between a better case (Dux) and no screen saver or an OK case with a screensaver. I may try the Apple shop and see if they can do it, as I bought it from Apple, or get a refund.

    Gorgeous Case

    Firstly, this case is stunning. It's well made with an easy grip and nice curved edges.

    Secondly my iPad mini now feels very well protected, far more than with the Apple case. With the case closed, i can't imagine the iPad getting damaged by being dropped. The tough, rubberised edges feel so solid.

    Thirdly, the case is also very functional. Like the Apple case the iPad wakes and sleeps with the opening and closing of the case. The case also works very well as a stand.

    For me though, the killer feature is the clear back. I can customise the case with stickers, badges etc so my iPad really stands out - when i want it to.

    Really recommend this product *****
