    Sturdy, durable case; strange design

    The good things first. This is a very durable case and it holds the iPad very securely. The magnetic cover latch is very strong and keeps the cover from flapping open when it is closed. All the cutouts line up perfectly and the volume and power buttons, which the case covers up, are comfortable to press.

    From here things get weird. Because of the wrap around cover latch the case designers have forgone the ubiquitous trifold method of propping/standing up the iPad. Instead the edge of the cover is meant to be slotted into two tiny hooks on the back side of the cover. This is awkward to accomplish and the cover edge tends not to stay in contact with the hooks, especially in the low angle position. The magnetic latch does help to keep the cover in position and propped up though.

    The addition of the hooks has also made it necessary for the case designer to add two ridges to the back side of the case that gives the case something to sit flat on when the cover is closed, rather than rocking back and forth on the hooks. This increases the profile of the case by a small amount. There is also a raised ridge around the front face of the iPad. The cover sits flush with this ridge, but it can make accessing the Touch ID/home button slightly awkward.

    Disappoint that Apple sell This to customers

    Very poor design. The design of the back cover is just about OK, but the front cover does not act a a secure stand. The front cover is not functional in any sense what so ever.

    Fantastic case

    I bought this case for my 5 year olds iPad that she is taking to kindergarten next year. Works perfectly, she was able to use it with no troubles and I am confident it has the protection and durability it needs to withstand the treatment that kids give to products. The case is easy to fold over, it creates a stand when they want to watch shows the the magnetic strap is easy for them to secure it all together.

    I had the iPad inscribed with my childs name as to not misplace it as easily in any form of "friend swap". The clear back is great to being able to still see the style of the iPad as well as the inscription which was a good bonus.

    Good case but..

    This is a good protecting case for fall damage but the iPads break so easily in a bag with schoolbooks in it.
    i wonder if this product is tested with weight on the iPads in this case, because we have a lot student that got there screen cracked because they had there iPad in the bag with there books (Sorry if i misspelled, english is not my native tongue)

    Instant on/off cover does not work

    Although I love the desing of this cover, the instant on/off cover does not allow my brand new iPad to auto shut off when I close it or wake it up when I open the lid. I do enjoy it anyways but just disapointed that the useful auto shut off option does not work.

    Sturdy case that I know how to use

    Just got the STM Dux Case for my ipad and am disappointed in reviwers whodon't know how to use this case as a stand for an iPad. The case is OK when put in lower position, but when arranged in the more upright position as shown in the photograph the case falls over as the plastic cover is too inflexible and the catches for holding the cover in place were inadequate - but then I realised that the image on the website is for illustration and not actually being shown 'standing', much like the pictures of iPhones and iPads stood upright unsupported aren't being held there by magic. Though this is a very sturdy case, I am very disappointed with its users lack of intelligence. In view of the price that is being asked for this product can I only give it 5 stars because I'm not clueless.

    Sturdy case but there's a problem with using it as a stand.

    Just got the STM Dux Case for my ipad and am disappointed about to serve as a stand for my iPad. The case is OK when put in lower position, but when arranged in the more upright position as shown in the photograph the case falls over as the plastic cover is too inflexible and the catches for holding the cover in place were inadequate. Though this is a very sturdy case, I am very disappointed with its usefulness as a stand. In view of the price that is being asked for this product can I only give it one star.

    Due case for iPad

    I purchased this case in the hopes that it would be what I needed but was afraid it wouldn't work. I even called several times to speak to different reps to find out what they had to say about it. That didn't even ease my mind but I ordered it anyway thinking I could send it back if I didn't like it. It ended up being the smartest thing I've ever done. This case is wonderful! I am so pleased with it I could bust open. The iPad fit into it like a glove. Easy to install, stays where you put it when working on the iPad, well made and such a beautiful case. Well worth the money. I just got it yesterday so I don't know how it will hold up but if it wears out before the iPad does I will order another one just like it again. I highly recommend it and am thrilled with it.

    Great, durable iPad case.

    I received this case as a gift and I absolutely love it! I really like how when the cover is closed, there is a magnet which keeps it from flying back open. It feels extremely well built and I would trust that the case would do its job if I ever dropped my iPad. Accessibility is great. The case allows all buttons to work flawlessly and still gives me access to all ports and speakers. Overall, this is a great case and I highly recommend it!

    Very pleased

    My wife has an iPad mini in a griffon case which has served her well. I bought her an iPad 5 and since it will really never go out of the house, we decided on this case, which arrived today. The fit is great and I am impressed with the product and price. Delivery was fast!! I think it will be just the ticket for her!! Nice design and quality manufacture.
