I have an iPad mini Otterbox defender series. I take my iPad everywhere and my Otterbox goes there as we'll. From dropping 4 foot to kicking out of the car on cement. This case will definitely help you keep your device fully protected. I got an iPod had it one day and cracked the screen I got my iPad put it in an Otterbox and I have had it about 2 to 3 years and it doesn't even have a scratch on it. I will defiantly recommend someone other than me to use Otterbox.

I have three otterbox cases-- one defender series for iPhone 5s and two for my kid's ipad mini. I love all of them--style, protection they offer, the feel in my hand... What I do not like is how easily scratchable the front screen for the ipad case was. Even with most gentle use. And they are very expensive to replace them as often as the need arises. And the screen cover can't be replaced with some other cheaper brand because the front cover is a solid piece with the whole thing. So, every time there is a scratch that bothers you, get ready to buy the whole case again.

Not quite happy

Comments about Apple Black iPad Mini Smart Cover:
I purchased the folio cover as well as the shell which holds the iPad. From my perspective when using the folio as a stand the folio does not have the proper grooves or enough grooves to hold the shell. The shell slides off the portfolio constantly so it seems the 2 pieces are not cohesive. I would like to know if I am setting it up correctly as I love the Otterbox products so much that I am really surprised that I would have this problem
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've been waiting for Otterbox to come out with an iPad case that had a cover I didn't have to snap on and looked professional enough to use around the office. This is certainly it. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I also appreciate that I can access all of the iPad's functions within the case. Three issues: 1. The case is big. It dramatically increases the iPad's profile. 2. It's heavy. But I expect the weight will pay off in durability. 3. No magnet to activate and deactivate the iPad. If I'm paying all this money, I think it's reasonable to stick a magnet on the inside of the cover. Overall, a very good product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Combined with the shell, this product is by far the best product on the market when it comes to iPad protection.

Cumbersome and falls off. Magnet does not hold it on.
nice but confusing
from Siesta Key, FL
I like the way the folio looks and feels. It attaches and detaches easily to the shell. It does a good job of protecting the IPad when it's being carried in a briefcase or bag. But, the use of the folio for positioning the IPad for viewing is not intuitive. A newbie user will have to fiddle with it to figure out how to use it.
amazing product genial ...

amazing product genial super awesome bravo chic I love it fantastic
I have had an Otterbox case on ALL my iPad devices, for the past 3 years. This case perfectly absorbs easily any bumps and drops protecting your iPad from damage. The silicon cover (for the iPad Mini) warped and cracked/tore at the corners after just under a year of daily use. I thought I would have to pay for an entire new case, but to my surprise Otterbox sent me a new free replacement cover. A case is a necessary investment for the protection of your device's and buying Otterbox is an investment worth every penny. So buy an Otterbox case now BEFORE you have a mishap. It is an investment you won't regret.

best investment ever
I looked at these cases for months but kept not buying because of the price. Then I dropped my ipad and have a small crack in the corner so I finally made the purchase. I love it! I just wish I hadn't waited. It is definitely worth the investment. What isn't necessarily clear online is that if you get the two pieces (shell and outer case) it entirely covers the ipad, including the screen, so it is totally protected. The stand is nice but not necessary if you want to save a little money.
Durable case but stiff buttons
It seems to be built well and very sturdy, but...it does make it a challenge to press any of the buttons. Turning it on or off or adjusting the volume requires a lot of effort. Maybe as it is used more the buttons will break in and become easier to use I don't know but right now after about a month of use it takes quite a lot of effort to press any of the buttons. The screen protection not only protects the screen but it seems to allow full functionality unlike some other brand of products that make it difficult to access the edges of the screen. Otter Box allows complete access to the edge of the screen functions. Overall I like the case with the protection it gives.
