I bought this case hoping it would be better than the previous one I had tried (the SAMRICK 'S' Wave Hydro Gel Protective Case
) and was not disappointed. This case fits well, with no hanging gaps at the top or bottom edges. The material gives a nice firm grip on the hand without feeling tacky, and can still be slid across a desk without having to pick it up. It is untextured, so that might be an issue if you suffer from sweaty hands.
Some of the images give the impression it is completed clear, but it is actually a 'frosted' look. On the black/slate iPad Mini, the engraving will show through but the Apple logo and iPad markings on the back are all but invisible. If this bothers you, look elsewhere.
