4.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I have the original iPad + similar black Gumdrop protection case so I pretty much knew what to expect. The big iPad has separate protective plastic screen which helps the assembly (total 3 parts) but the iPad mini version there is only one hard plastic part (total 2 parts).
There are no instructions how to install the hard plastic part so it took me 3-5 times to try it on; anyway do not rush to put the silicon part on until the hard plastic part is neatly seated. I haven't had any usability problems with the protective case.

The actual protection works as it should so nothing to complain, the kids has been using iPad mini with Gumdrop case one month now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some problems 3 Nov 2012
By Jon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Got my new iPad Mini yesterday and wanted to get it into a case as quickly as possible so ordered this Gumdrop Drop Tech series case with overnight shipping. Arrived by 10 am so was excited to get it installed. It is rugged and I have no doubt that it will provide some serious additional protection to the iPad. Case fits well on the device although you should take good care to ensure your screen and the back side of the screen protector are cleaned well before installing.

Biggest problem for me is with the buttons. The volume up and down buttons tend to stick and then either take volume to full off or full on. So it's extremely difficult to set a volume in between the two extremes. I also find it completely impossible to push the power off/on button so have to basically leave the device sit so it can go to sleep on it's own. I am not lacking in strength and have exerted significant force attempting to power down the device but as far as I can tell the power button on the case is pretty much useless. It is my belief that this case needs some serious refinement to address the problems with the buttons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 27 Feb 2013
By tap595 - Published on Amazon.com

I had a gumdrop case for my IPAD2 and loved it. When I got my iPad mini, I thought about getting a gumdrop case but, the reviews were fairly negative so I didn't. Instead, I got an otter box case. I didn't like it as it was very bulky so I returned it. I contacted the gumdrop case company and asked them if they were aware of the issues with the iPad mini product. I got a fast response and they said they did and had addressed the issues with the manufacturer. So, I decided to buy one to try. I am so glad that I did. It fits great, protects the device, and I have had NO problems with buttons sticking or anything. I carry my mini in my purse to it gets tossed around quite a bit. It's protected it very well! I can not recommend this product highly enough!

1.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Fit - HOME Button Gets Stuck Immediately 8 Nov 2012
By Ryan Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Does Not Fit Properly - As other reviews indicate.

The case simply does not fit properly unless you augment the home button by cutting out an additional 0.5cm to the lower aspect of the plastic-cover button. Anytime the case if fully covering the home button it will get stuck nearly immediately after placement. The home button repeatedly gets stuck and siri pops up - and the only way to fix the problem is to remove the rubber area surrounding the button and push rigorously to remove the plastic area from compressing the button. This error occurs nearly every single use, so my case bottom area is nearly 100% of the time uncovered... I am not going to cut out the extra necessary area, but will rather return the product for an otterbox case.

----- Follow-up 11-12-12 -----

I recently received an otterbox case for my Ipad Mini and there is a night a day difference between the two cases. First and foremost, with the otterbox case on my mini, instead of looking adolescent and feeling awkward in the hand (the wavelike pattern on the back feels very unusual and looks very unprofessional) it both looks far more professional and substantial and feels like a real-sized Ipad.

It is hard to explain the difference exactly, but there remains no question in my mind the otterbox case is much more what one would expect from a case; protection, look, and feel on par with price payed. I am very glad I decided to return the gum drop case rather than augment it to fit my ipad mini properly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broke after 7 months with gentle use 12 Jan 2014
By Michelle Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have been in negotiations with the company for months and had a lack of response from them, so not only is the product not great, the customer service is mediocre as well. This broke in four different spots randomly one day after seven months of gentle use. I use my iPad at home and treat it very kindly. It shouldn't t have broken. I am much happier with another well known brand for iPad cases that only cost me $30. Would not recommend this case - plastic is much cheaper and flimsier than you would expect for paying $70. Unfortunately, as I really like the colors and wanted to enjoy this product for much longer.

I guess the only pro is the button covers are better and I enjoy the tactile feel more than my new case. I'm willing to sacrifice that for a product that lasts though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable and cute 6 Feb 2013
By mmlm81 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a perfect case for a young person. It is heavy duty but also stylish. I was a little surprised that there were no instructions of how to open up the case (even if it is common sense, it wasn't that obvious, at least to me). I am happy with this product.

Update 25 August 2013 (about 6 months of use): The pink plastic portion has cracked in two places, but the case is still usable. Also, after a lot of use by dirty little hands, the plastic clear cover seems like it could be replaced- even with cleaning, it is not completely clear. Not sure if they sell replacements for the plastic cover. Still happy with it but wish it had kept up a little better.
