    Good at first; a disappointment later

    • Written by Flavia A from Northampton

    The case is sleek and lightweight, as I wanted. It felt like solid protection for my iPad without taking over in design. One of the first difficulties I experienced with this case had to do with the hard surface covering the bottoms for volume and for powering the device off. The surface is so hard that I had to remove the device from the case just to be able to power it off. So that's definitely a flaw in design. Despite that, I decided to keep it and give it a try. One of the things I really appreciated was the built-in holder for Apple Pencil. Even though the pencil stays a bit loose within the holder, it's secure enough for transportation and allowed me to keep my pencil with the device at all times...well, until it broke on me for no reason...Yes, the built-in holder simply got detached from the case without any bumps or falls. One day, recently, I was grabbing my device from my bag when I noticed the pencil was not there. I looked inside the bag and saw that the holder was there with the pencil. And it's broken just like that. Big time flaw in design and durability. So if that feature attracts you about this case, know now that it won't last. For me, it didn't even last for an entire month (and I am a super careful person with my devices!).

    Great ipad protection, but you may loose pencil.

    The quality was better than I expected. I particularly purchased this case to keep my Apple Pencil attached. 2 months after I had it I realized the holder can unattach, eventually knocking off and becoming looser over time. Sadly I lost my Apple Pencil at a convention this weekend because of this. Still deavastated it’s gone. I always check and stay cautious of it, but this case failed to actually keep the pen holder attached. I understand use over time but I have only had it for 4 months and do not use it daily. I don’t think I should have had to worry about that. My pencil was used for sketching designs for my small business. I will be searching for a better product that does not have a detachment when I can get a replacement.

    Design faults

    • Written by Jasper S from Newcastle Upon Tyne

    The case looks nice and fits the device well, however I had a couple of issues. The first was that the buttons on the device became unresponsive with the case on, so every time I wanted to use the volume or on/off switch I had to push down hard which doesn't seem right somehow, this should have been picked up in testing and a solution found to make the areas around the buttons more tactile. Secondly, the pencil holder attachment became loose and eventually just started slipping off by itself.

    6 months after purchasing it I had to return it to the Apple store for a refund mainly due to the pencil holder problem.

    Pencil Holder is Rubbish

    • Written by Stacey K from Baulkham Hills

    When I bought this case initially I was very happy with it. Nice protective case, functions well with the keyboard, somewhere to hold the pencil. The problem is the pencil holder is a removable attachment, the problem is that to remove the pencil holder attachment that you push down on it and it will unclip from the case, which means eventually every time you are putting the pencil away with the holder attachment is disconnecting itself from the case which has unfortunately resulted in a pencil going missing.
    If you're after a functional AND practical case I'd highly recommend the Otterbox case, very very similar but doesn't have this problem.

    Wish I could return it

    I started hating it as soon as the pen holder attachment started coming off with the slightest touch. That is extremely annoying and irritating for the price this is being sold for. Not worth it, don’t spend your money on this.

    It needs optimisation

    • Written by Davide Dom S from Oxford

    For a £60 plastic case I would have expected perfection instead with this case all the 3 buttons of my iPad are unsefull. The only way to use them are with a really unnatural super pression. Really disappointed.
