The built-in stand will come in handy while trying to watch a movie or video, and creates a comfortable browsing experience. When using your iPad on a flat surface, the silicone grip pads on the bottom will hold your device securely in place. We also designed this case to accommodate the optional iPad dock accessory!

I got the Otterbox for $60, which after shopping around is a great price for this product. It did take a little work to put it on my ipad - but I expected that. Not that I have intentionally dropped it on the ground, I do feel more comfortable that my ipad is reasonably safe (since this is my 2nd ipad - my husband tried to kill the first one when he left it on top of my car). So I think this is a good investment in a house with my husband and a toddler.
Strong, sturdy case. Makes me feel my iPad is really protected.
This is far better than the silicone junk cases. It can be difficult to install but not bad. It adds some heft but IMO is worth the added protection to your very expensive tablet. It fits perfect and works like it should. The face plate is kinda hit and miss and you might not ever use it but its there. For $20 its a no brainer. Theres plenty of colors to choose from.
This is a great case. This is the second one i have ordered (just like the yellow accent). Very rugged. You can rest easy handling your investment as long as it's in this thing. I have dropped mine onto asphalt too many times to count, and no problems with the phone at all. I must admit, when I first got the iphone into the case,novi
Cumbersome to install5/2/2012
The unit arrive and it is very bulky, the part that concerns me most is the port where the Ipad is charged has a cover that is har to get off and this makes the overall design poor. Also the screen protector took a bit of work to get the screen perfectly clean and all air bubble out. This is asturdy unit and will help in case of a fall but the cover design over the charging port is so poor you will leave it off and that negates any water protection you may have gained.
