    Good protection...functionality fades quickly

    The case is good for protection, but if you generally keep it closed or use it in a fashion that you are not utilizing the "stand" function, the cover eventually loses it's ability to support the iPad in an upright condition. By eventually, I mean in less than 3 months. Lousy design in that respect.

    Awesome case, awesome price

    This case is excellent, way better than some more expensive cases I've handled. It's also unique in that it has the clear back, so far I have not found other cases with a clear back window -- a nice touch for iPad owners who like to see their silver/grey/gold back as well those who personalized their device with laser engraving. I like that you can stick a picture or business card behind the window for better identification. I bought this originally for my son's iPad mini and then I obsessed for longer than I care to mention about which case I should get for my Air 2. I went to multiple gadget stores and considered the $100+ Griffin Survivor and the Otter cases but did not like them because they make the incredibly thin and light Air 2 big and bulky -- I did not see the point of sliding my sleek new iPad into a giant coffin, although I am sure the people who droptest tablets for a living really love those cases. The STM Dux is very rugged and strong but also maintains a reasonably thin profile. I even looked for hand-crafted cases on Etsy but found nothing. If you want a case that is strong, has coverage of all surfaces and sides and does not hide the engraving/colour on the iPads backside then this one fits the bill perfectly.

    Best case for the price

    This case is the best balance between quality, design, and price. The back is clear so it shows the iPad's nice back finish and it protects the device very well. Have not yet experienced any falls or hits but the feel of it can assure decent protection yet it's quite sleek. The only other thing worth mentioning is that this case wont allow any screen protector installation. Since it is designed to fit exactly the thickness of iPad it does not allow any extra body that even thinnest screen protector adds - it will just push the corners off and it will be peeled on corners - tried both wet and dry application screen protector types. This wont reduce stars though because it still offers more than adequate protection for the screen because the cover locks with extended latch and at the same time it is not super tight to cause scratches when locked (in case some sand particles get inside, for example). All buttons work ok through the case. Regarding some having issues with housing for headsets - tried my 7 or 8 year old sehnheisers and it fits just perfectly. In case one runs into issue the housing can be enlarged by cutting the obstructing material with a small utility knife, for instance.

    Best case ever

    This case is durable yet light, protective but not bulky. This case offers surround protection and is not bulky like I originally thought. This case isn't masculine in the way that my teenage daughter wouldn't want to use it. It also offers a lot of personalization by the clear back.

    Nice sturdy case

    Offers a lot of protection and looks great. My only real complaint is the stand doesn't work very well at all but I don't use the feature that much so Im still giving it 5 stars because it does everything else perfectly.
