In case you missed the great news, I got an iPad a few weeks ago. I am loving it! As a person who values the things I get, I knew I wanted to protect it to the best of my ability. I went to searching for the best case around and I believe I found it with an Otterbox!
I was sent an Otterbox Defender Series iPad case for review. When it arrived, I was so excited. I opened the box immediately and took out the case. I was so pleased with the case from the moment I saw the black and pink design… it is so stylish!
With each Defender Series case, you receive a screen protector and the case itself. What makes the Otterbox so unique is that it has 3 layers or protection. You have a clear protective membrane for the touch screen, a hard polycarbonate shell (including a shell cover) and a silicone skin. If you put the cover over the front, your screen is protected. You can also turn the cover into a stand… which I just love!
You have access to all buttons and ports but they are protected with a silicone plug. The Apple logo can be seen through the back but it has a clear membrane over it to protect it. The battery dock is also protected with a removable dock door. Simply remove the door and you can charge your iPad easily. Put the door back on and your port is protected from anything getting to it.
I watched the video on the Otterbox website before the case arrived. It is very simple to put on. You may wonder how well the silicone layer stays in place. I have had no problems with the silicone pulling away from the polycarbonate layer. It fits together perfectly. There are small grooves that the silicone fits into to make a nice, tight fit.
When I am not using my iPad, I have the shell over the screen. When I am using it, I always use the shell as a stand. I absolutely adore the Otterbox Defender Series case. I literally have no complaints about this case at all. If you have an iPad (or any other electronic that you really treasure), I would highly recommend an Otterbox case. The Defender Series for iPad can be purchased for $89.95 from Otterbox.com and it is worth every penny. There are other series available as well so be sure to check them out to see what fits your needs.
Otterbox sells cases for Amazon Kindle, Apple products, Barnes and Noble products, Blackberry, Dell, Google, HP, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Palm, Samsung, Sony, Trimble, and even have waterproof cases.
