Beautiful and not overly bulky. Looks well made and feels secure. Above all it was easy to get on ! There is one thing that I dislike and it is fiddle things and this is NOT one of them. The instructions are crystal clear with good diagrams. The actual case had no funny smells and the packaging was in perfect condition. Item was ordered on the 11th and arrived today 14/5/2013. As for the specs, there is so far no distortion of page viewing, I have shopped online and watched film. The screen behaves the same way when I touch the protective film as it would when I touch the iPad glass. The silicone button cover causes no interference, nor does the on off. I have not made many purchases on Amazon but this is one of my best. If I had purchased this sooner I would not have caused a tiny dent in my IPad (doh!), they are a bit delicate on the back...no I did not drop it, it has not left my house I have had it only a month and noticed last week tiny ding on back. So BEWARE. Buy the case straight away, as soon as you unbox put it on!

I have had a number of different cases for previous iPads I've owned but the otterbox is the best by far. Due to its compact size I knew I'd be carrying the ipad mini around with me a fair bit, so I wanted something really protective.
It does add weight/ bulk, but in my opinion not too much. The case also doesn't feel cheap like some others do.
I'm not sure I'd actually carry the stand part around with me, but as a stand it works wonderfully and holds it in a good sturdy position.
The screen protector is brilliant - I've had problems in the past with the stick on kind (air bubbles) but as this doesn't work like that its been perfect. Everything is still very responsive and it's still easy to use in the far corners.

Got my otter box case today and have now fitted my I pad mini. Very tough construction and easy to fit, I used an anti static cleaner on I pad screen and don't have to much issue with oil marks on the screen but also don't press very hard. I have a like proof case on my I phone but prefer the look of the otterbox, didn't need my I pad to be waterproof so this is a much cheaper option for me. Now can put I pad in bag and not worry about scratching etc on my keys.
Great purchase.

The case is well built and offers excellent protection. However it has one major flaw. The built in screen protector sticks to the ipad screen and causes watermark/Newton's rings wherever you touch the screen. After tapping and swiping for a while the screen is a complete mess. The marks are distracting and distort the underlying text/image.
I contacted Otterbox and their only advice was to spray baby powder under the screen protector to stop it touching the ipad screen.
For a £50 (rrp) case I expect better. A shame really as this could be a 5 star product.
My advice - don't waste your money, look elsewhere...

Really strong, quality product. I've used Otterbox for several ipads and iphones too.
For the mini ipad we have had no problems what so ever and this is in the hands of a 3 yr old and a 8 yr old.
I had found a problem with the rubber back on the full size ipad model in the fact that the rubber lost its shape and secure fitting, but this hasn't been a problem with the smal mini ipad model.
Switched to the Lifeproof Nuud case for the bigger size ipads, this Otterbox is still working fine though.

I wanted something to protect my iPad when on my push bike or motorcycle or even out walking. I have to say that the OtterBox does do this rather well. I t does not pretend to be waterproof but it does ofer really substantial protection. The problem is that the screen constantly has those horrible air bubbles between it and the protective cover. There is no way that you can avoid them. So you have this stunningly beautifully designed piece of electronic digital bliss, the iPad turned into an inelegant visually unappealing air bubble. If I really do want to protect my iPad I will compromise and use the OtterBox but it really is a shame that they could not design a better way to protect the screen.

I bought this for my wife for her ipad Mini...it's easily the best fitting cover available that has a nice feel to it too and complements the ipad very well. Easy access to the controls and connections. it also comes with a hard cover for when you travel which also acts as a stand for the tablet. Very clever stuff.

Although pricey this item is a fantastic product if you want to offer the best protection to your ipad, especially where children are concerned!..........nothing else on the market other than a Griffin case come close!

Having bought this, for my daughters ipad mini for xmas, i was devastated to see that when i installed it on to the actual ipad, the screen sort of bubbled! Its like the screen is wet in parts and is extremely distracting. The bubbling cannot be pushed out and the case has been thrown to one side because it is useless. Having bought this early for an xmas present i have missed the window to return it. I purchased the same case from another supplier (in grey), for my son, and that one is spot on. The screen is virtually invisible on the ipad. I don't write reviews but feel i had to get my point across on this one!

Genius of all Cases for iPads. Excellent buy, you won't be disappointed. I bought this for my 6yr, iPad and she has dropped it quite a few times,in this case and the iPad was untouch, great protection for it. I highly recommend it.
