Firstly, for £7 I don't imagine it'd be fair to expect a very high quality case. Postage was really quick. The case itself fits well. It grips the iPad, just enough to keep it in place. As another post mentioned, it could've been that bit better fitting. The edges are sharp too. However, for the price it does serve a purpose and I wouldn't pay £65 for a case just because it has an apple on the back. My main gripe with the case is it hardly ever stands up in landscape view, it's very difficult to get it to do that, in fact, I've only managed to get through one episode of Postman Pat before it slipped and landed flat (My daughter was watching it.) I did email the seller and received a fairly bizarre reply. He asked if I could take pictures to show it can't stand? I'm not entirely sure how I'd go about that, this is it flat and here we are, flat again? I don't know. I would imagine a video would be better or better still, he could test his stock with an iPad Air so he can see.
Anyway, I'm giving 1 star for fast postage.
1 star as it does protect it, although I doubt it would survive a drop, I imagine the slightly mid-designed fit would cause the iPad to pop out - perish the thought.
The other star is for it being cheap, it'll do for now until somebody makes a better cheap one.
I'm not awarding stars for it being as described as it doesn't stand up properly, had I of not wanted that kind of case, I'd of used a sleeve for when it's not in use.
I'm not awarding a star for customer service as taking a picture of the iPad when it's slipped was the most ridiculous answer I have ever had.
Overall, it serves a purpose, it looks fairly good and if you can't wait for a decent cheaper version of the original, this will do until you find one.
