      I have been using an Otterbox Defender Case for my iPad Air 2 and the biggest complaints I have with that case is that it is very bulky and on the heavier side. When I saw that I had a chance to review this case, I was thrilled. The life proof case is almost half as thick as the Otterbox one (when you include the stand) and only has two parts whereas the Otterbox has four parts. It is definitely lighter and you still have access to all of the ports and cameras. This case comes with a headphone adapter and a screen cleaning cloth. There are also instructions for testing the waterproof feature. Basically you insert the blue plastic piece (that functions as your iPad) into the case without the iPad in it, submerge it for 30 minutes and check to see if there is water on the inside. When I did this test, the inside was bone dry. The only drawback I can see is that this case allows you to use your screen without a protective film or anything on it. I worry that my screen will get scratched or damaged somehow and while it is a nice feature, I'll still probably purchase a screen protector film for it. Otherwise this case is definitely a step up from the Otterbox Defender.

      Great all around protection

      I don't expect to go swimming or diving with this or anything like that. Basically just looking for solid all around protection against drops and accidental water issues and so forth. This case has great form factor - much improved over previous version (I've had one for mini and one for ipad1) - this latest has much less bulk. Generally I hate cases because I love the feel of no case - but just can't risk it. Given the level of protection this seems very acceptable additional bulk and still looks cool. The one we had on an ipad1 was put to the test, dropped significantly and often and is impressively still holding up very well so if that's any indication this should be great. I saw other reviews about finger print reader as well as sound. I find both are perfectly acceptable. Finger print reader worked right away without issue and haven't added any additional fingers after putting the case on so 0 complaints. Sound is only minimally muffled but for my purposes works just fine. Bottom line - haven't it put it through the ringer, but so far loving the form factor and feel confident things are well protected.

      Diminishing Quality and Build

      I have owned several Lifeproof cases for my ipads over the years and have been very pleased with the cases and the service from lifeproof when I had a warranty issue. With that said I am completely disappointed with the new cases they are putting out. The case I just purchased for my ipad air2 is not even close to my older lifeproof cases in terms of quality and durability. It now resembles those cheap knockoff cases a third the price. Its very sad. I absolutely loved my older cases! I put them through hell! I do a lot of outdoor wok in video and film and also outdoor sports such as boating, water sports, motorcycles etc. My older lifeproof cases endured everything as I was very hard on them and they held up fantastically! This new case is nowhere near that quality of build, feels very cheap and honestly I am afraid to do half the stuff I previously was able to do. The new cases are definitely not worth the money. I will be looking for a more secure option for my ipad that will stand up to the previous lifeproof case durability.

      Trusted protection

      With the provided tool, opening the two piece case is easy. Not so much without it. Waterproof case proven in bathtub full of hot water. Just make sure the silicon seal are pressed flat against the iPad screen when closing the case. I rushed closure of the case on the iPad, the silicon tends to "roll up" or bunch up unevenly. Dropped the case several times and the rubber corner bumpers that's supposed to absorb the shock have developed cracks where it fell. Headphone adapter is difficult to disconnect after attaching and I do this atleast 5 times a day. Keep a close eye on the yellow seal around the headphone jack. It tends to roll off each time you disconnect. Mine eventually fell off. I don't know if it can be replaced. After having the iPad in the case for a while now I've noticed a significant reduction In Sound volume and quality. But since a Bluetooth speaker is often used with this tablet that issue is negligible.

      I bought the case because it's waterproof. I've Always liked the ability to directly touch the screen on my tablet. This fits the bill. I got the snap on screen protector as well to protect the screen as I put it in and out of my bag. Though expensive, save some money in the long run and buy this one. Otherwise, you will end up purchasing 1 or 2 different brands and eventually purchasing this one anyway wishing you hadn't spent the money on the other covers. Buy once, so buy the best and it will last the longest. It's cheaper in the long run.

      A MUST for tablets...

      This is a fantastic case! I have multiple ones. This was for my wife's new iPad Air 2. If you are going to spend a lot of money on a tablet, don't skimp on the case. While the color option is black only, it is really mostly a border and the front and back are clear. Don't worry about it. I also recommend a ZAGG glass cover for the screen as this does not have a screen protector. Both this case, and the ZAGG, offer life time warranty and I have invoked them previously on other platforms and both customer service departments are outstanding. Best Buy can rest assured that LifeProof (and ZAGG) are great manufacturers to sell to their customers.

      Fantastic case for the rough technology user

      I tend to be a bit hard on my technology items. I have had to replace numerous screens, keyboards, etc. so, I decided that I would attempt to find some sort of protection for my technology that may endure my misuse! This is a great case. It allows you to have your device, without a overlay on the screen which I have found are often times terrible to work with. It is waterproof, which has already save my unit once. This is definitely one of my favorite protectors. It's not too bulky, but it is definitely effective For protection. I enjoy the additional accessories, I have purchased the shoulder strap as well as the hand strap for the back. Very useful. Highly recommend this item for the heavy handed user like myself!

      The Lifeproof Nuud cases are hands down the best Of the Lifeproof line. Clean lines and no annoying film that gets scratched and moves. Very happy with my purchase and am sure you will too. The only cons are: 1. The back cover gets scratched easily, but this does not affect operation. 2. The front screen is prone to damage from keys without the protective screen. Just install a screen protector and your good to go. It's not necessary but is added assurance.
