3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but with an irritating flaw, 25 Dec. 2012
This review is from: InventCase Apple iPad mini Tablet (1st Generation - 7.9-Inch) 2012 Smart Multi-Functional 3-Fold Case Cover with Sleep Wake Function - Black (Personal Computers)
Initial impressions were good. The case fits snugly and doesn't bulk out the iPad Mini too much. Build quality was reasonable for the price. However, I soon realised there was an irritating flaw such that I have now bitten the bullet and purchase and official Apple Smartcover. The flaw is the magnetic catch which locks the iPad. It is too powerful such that even if you fold the front cover around the back of the iPad it is strong enough to lock the iPad. Worse it was a little random so in the middle of a game the iPad would suddenly lock.

This is true - with case on -the iPad turns itself off unexpectedly all the time - sadly as such the case cannot be used.

The magnet on my case wasn't very strong. This did not deter me from using the item as I just switched off the auto screen lock in the general settings section.

Thanks for your findings. I wondered why the screen locked up. Just tested this and it does lock with the cover wrapped around the back. Turning auto-lock off solves the problem. However, like you suggest, a slightly weaker magnet is needed or a different case. I intially thought I had an ipad problem.

I found the same problem was happening to me the screen would go off with a `click' and then click back on. I thought it was a problem with my pad until I took the cover off, it was Ok after that. I thought it was the cover gipping the pad too tight causing pressure on the casing, I know otherwise now.

This happened to me on a different ipad case but I turned off the thing that turns on the ipad when u take the cover off. It is now fixed and I don't mind switching it on.
