1.0 out of 5 stars Great case, but heavy and button sticks 24 Feb 2014
By Andy CI
Verified Purchase
Initially i was really impressed with this case. It's very solid and i suspect it will take a lot of abuse. I volunteer as a motorsport medic so spend most weekends in the back of a 4x4 covered in mud and oil, so this case stands up well.

The case is very heavy - felt the urge to take it out the case when back home as it really became clumsy to use day to day.

After a couple of weeks the button started causing problems, it would either not work, so could not do anything that required the button, or it would randomly trigger Siri - including in the middle of the night.

Now about 3 months in, the iPad is next to useless in the case - the button is a total mare.

The charging port is also badly deigned as the catch to open it is in the middle so rests on the charger when plugged in and puts pressure on it, which i suspect after 6 months or so will start to damage the charging cable.

All in all disappointed as the case is great, but soon becomes unworkable with the button.

Hoping to return it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ideal combination of form and function! 23 Nov 2012
By Ilan - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this case to protect my iPad mini, and it's an excellent product. The case has a hard composite skeleton which snaps to the iPad mini, then gets covered by the silicone skin. The case is easy to install, although securing the silicone tabs to the composite skeleton can be a little tedious. It makes a very secure connection and is worth the extra few seconds to properly put it on.

I actually had the iPad knocked out of my hands from about 4' off the ground this Thanksgiving, and when the iPad landed it made a very soft sound and the device didn't take any damage at all. That covers the main part of the functional aspects. All the ports are easily accessible from the flaps, the volume and power buttons are very well-linked and don't feel like there's a layer of silicone between the button and your finger. The only downside is that the home button does feel squishy and it's sometimes difficult to tell when you've actually pressed it. For how well the case is made and how well it functions, I can live with that.

For looks and form, the case is awesome. The rugged design on the back is reminiscent of a tank tread and doesn't have any awkward and poorly-executed features that other cases have. The tread backing gives your fingers mechanical grip on the device aside from the higher friction compared to the bare metal iPad. The case is nice and thick, and it makes the iPad easier to hold. While some argue it defeats the purpose of having an ultra-thin electronic device, the true benefit to thinner devices is that they're not as thick with protective cases installed as they used to be. The case has a very ideal thickness which is close to how your fingers would naturally hold something like this in your hand.

I am extremely happy with this case, and it's well worth the asking price. Other cases will save you $10 or $20, but do not offer the genuinely flawless protection that HardCandy Cases engineers into their items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Candy Shockdrop Case for iPad Mini 3 Dec 2012
By A. Rothschild - Published on Amazon.com
I have a black shockdrop case for my mini ipad. I also have a shockdrop for my iPad 2, which I have not used, and a Griffin Survivor, which I do use. Both are really heavy but the Hard Candy smelled too much of tire and i couldn't get over it. I have a three-year old daughter and needed the most protective case I could find, and at that point, the Griffin and Hard Candy were it. The Otterbox got consistently bad reviews, so that was out of the running immediately. I also had (several) Otterbox defender cases for my iPod Touch4, which Otterbox replaced at no charge four times because the silicone on the outside kept stretching out. It's a rugged but a terrible design to have the silicone as the outside layer rather than as the inside layer like the Griffin and Shockdrop. The Griffin, though, has definitely serve its purpose - the thing has been dropped a hundred times. The Hard Candy iPad 2 cases looks just as sturdy, and I used it for a week, but the tire smell didn't dissipate much. Both ipad 2 cases were pretty heavy, though the Griffin is so heavy that it's hardly portable outside home, particularly if you live in NYC. This time around, as I searched for a case for my new iPad Mini I still needed the most durable case I could find, but hoped, without any great expectation, that I would find a more portable and attractive case than the iPad 2 cases. On the list were the Otterbox defender, the Griffin Survivor, and the Hard Candy Shockdrop. After a lot of research, I decided on the Shockdrop for the somewhat silly reason that it was the cutest of the three. Each case has a built-in screen protector, which for me was essential, and each was clearly rugged enough to handle the inevitable falls and spills and other mishaps that would inevitable happen. So it was also crucial that the cover be reasonably sealed, but also that the camera, speakers, and other sockets be accessible without ruining the case. The Griffin definitely failed in that respect. It has these ridiculous tabs that have to be opened and moved aside to expose the speaker or use the camera, and charge it. That was a really bad design. I ended up cutting off several of those tabs just to make it usable, and of course, the exposed speaker got wet. Ugh! The Shock Drop is a totally different beast. The case protects every part of the device without having to remove or adjust anything for the device to be fully functional. In the end, weight was less a factor than protection, but I did hope I would be able to carry my Mini around with me and hoped it wouldn't look like an embarrassing suit of armor, but that wasn't my priority. Well here's my experience: (A) It is VERY light in comparison to any of the other protective cases, and I can carry easily in my bag walking around or on the subway in NYC. (B) It's extremely protective. It has already passed the drop test several times, as well as the spagetti and apple sauce tests. For protection, in my opinion, a built-in screen protector is critical, particularly if there are children. (C) It is cute and grippy. I like the nubby checker-like design. It's attractive and very easy to hold. Oh, and there's no tire smell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shock-Drop 20 Nov 2012
By M. SAP - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent, sturdy case. Fits the iPad Mini like a glove with no loose fitting edges. The silicon padding is ample enough to protect the iPad from minor bumps scrapes. The screen or face protector is very robust but has an odd finish that causes you fingers to drag or skip across the screen. I tried cleaning the surface with window cleaner and that helped somewhat. i finally solved the issue with a RainX, AccuVision type glass treatment and that seemed to fix the problem. Except for the issue with the face protector I would have given the case 5 Stars. great case, a little bulky but works great in my bike bag and backpack. Would recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Case for Kids! 27 Nov 2012
By Chad Thibodeaux - Published on Amazon.com
I bought two of these for my boys to protect their iPad Minis. The case fits the Mini perfectly. Before installing, be sure the Mini and screen cover are free from lint. Have patience when installing the outer frame. Some of the tabs may need gentle massaging to get them inserted. Once you're done, however, you will have a perfect seal for your iPad.

The rubberized housing provides a good non-slip grip for both large and small hands. Plus the kids think the tread like texture is cool. I feel confident that my investment will be protected by this case.

A great product and I highly recommend it.

Saved a few bucks over Otterbox, but didn't give up protection. I'm an Otterbox fan, but don't regret this buy at all!
