Every mobile device for a kid should use one12/24/2012
3 and 8 year old tested and enthusiastically approved. Have had one for two years on an iPad 1 and it has survived everything from 10 foot drops to hot soup spills. Bought another simply because the I accidentally stepped on the stand and broke it. So clumsy parent beware. But this is a great cover to really protect you technology.
Good protection, cumbersome to charge.9/21/2012
The back has to be taken off to charge the iPad. No easy access to plug in. The screen protector was difficult to put on without bubbles or trapped dust due to the static build up. Very good protection. Stand features are also a bit cumbersome.
Keep your older iPad looking like new8/17/2012
Though it does add some bulk, this case is perfect to protect your iPad
NOT FOR IPAD 2 ~title a little misleading6/29/2012
Product is great, but not comparable with Ipad 2, I will have to make a few holes here and there.
This is one of the best cases for the iPad It protects it very well.
This is a great case to really protect your investment. It does add a good amount of weight when the stand is attached, but if that is removed the weight add is negligible. The case looks pretty cool too!
Bought this as a gift for my brother who works construction. Great stuff -- definitely provides a great deal of protection for his ipad on the job site.
Headphone Slot is Not in the Right Place7/27/2011
It is a really good and sturdy box. You cannot plug in our headphones because the slot on the Otterbox is not aligned to the slot on the iPad2. Going to have to cut a new hole/modify the Otterbox to make it functional with headphones. C'mon Otterbox, this is a big mistake on your part.
Best home for an IPAD12/11/2010
This is an incredible case, protects it very very well......the only down side I see is the screen protector........the slightest piece of dust will leave a bubble you cannot get out.....I cleaned mine real well before hand and even used the cloth provided........still got a couple bubbles in the protector
If you are looking for something to relly protect your iPad. Look no further, and the screen cover turns into a pretty good stand too. It is heavy but it certainly will protect the iPad from scuff scratches and small drops. Only complaint is the lock switch that is now a mute switch is kind of hard to get to. I don't use it much so not a big deal
Kids Proof and Protection for Ipad11/13/2010
We had used both of our iPads for a few days without a case and reallize that we needed a case to protected our purchase from scratches, drops, stuffing it in our laptop bags with other things and accidental bumps. We have two kids and we knew that we also needed extra protection from any accidental bumping and abuse from our absent mind kids. This is the absolutely the case to get for not only for adult usage, regular abuse and also for kids. With out the case, I had to be gentle and grip the Ipad tight to ensure that I do not drop it. After we have the cases on, we never have to worry about our Ipads. Mind free is very important to us. We have good hand grip on the Ipad thanks to the texture of the case. Our kids uses the Ipads without us worry about it. Moving the Ipad around, stuffing it in our laptop bags, kids using it in the gym while waiting for class, pretty much any environment, we do not have to worry. Headset plug was not ever an issue for us for some reason. Our head phone cable has a straight end and not 90 degree. There is a bit of weight added with the case, but the protection for our expensive Ipads more out weigh anything in my opinion. Want mind free protection, get this case.
Protection = weight9/7/2010
The otter box does the job of protecting iPad for sure. It adds at least a pound, so prepare to develop your muscles! One issue, the area around the headphone Jack is tight, so if you have anything bigger than your apple headphones, if won't fit. I'll be filing the hole a smidge bigger
