well protected,but a poor stand.
on 4 November 2011
The idea was what sold it to me. To be able to rotate Ipad and stand in both horizontal & vertical aspects. The whole thing clips together snugly and easily.I am confident that "padoo"( my nickname for it, sorry) is well protected. Camera holes and access cut outs for all the side buttons & loudspeaker are excellent.Fully loaded the case seems rather heavy but this does help to reinforce that the kit is robust and the Ipad safe.
Sadly though the "stand" aspect of the case is poor.In the horizontal mode the back is just firm enough but in vertical mode the back starts to feel unsteady. Standing on a desk this is not, perhaps, a problem but reading from an armchair or even in/on a bed its not practical. The grooves that the Ipad nestles in are not deep enough and again, and on anything less that a flat table top, the Ipad tends to slip out of them particularly when stabbing fingers are using the keyboard.
So - Safe & well protected - Yes. Strong foolproof stand - No. I paid over £44. for the case from John Lewis ! a lot of money just for protection.
