Looks functional BUT....
on 7 April 2011
There are two sides to this review, the positive aspects of it are the protection it offers and the practicality of the positions (for writing and viewing). The downfall is the bulkiness effect. You buy an extremely thin iPad2 and then with the cover it goes up to 1cm thick.
Update: After 5 months of daily usage, the thing in the back that holds the iPad straight slips the plastic where you set the desired tilt. I can only use it laid down (typing position). The plastic finishing around the edges started to peal around the entire case... and also on the piece that hold the iPad stright... that's the reason will it slips! I still think the overall protection is fine (good for heavy travelers!), but once the thing starts to crack you will feel it was a waste of money.
The bulkiness effect I've mentioned few months ago also lead me to stop using it completely. I will change my review from 4 start, to 1 (the single star it's for the overall protection).
