      I wish they would come out with more colors for the OtterBox for the iPads but I’m sure they’ll be you know coming out with hopefully soon different colors but until then this Otterbox is great it protects my iPad great the only thing I don’t like about it is that the plastic built in screen get dirty a lot but that’s OK I clean it anyway LOL and what’s really awesome about it is that you can have a temper glass on your iPad Pro and still use the built-in screen protector on it instead of taking it out so I really love that part that’s awesome.

      I have used Otterbox cases for my iPhones and iPads. I have had several over the years and keep going back. They are always dependable and durable. They have always kept my devices secure with no harm. I do try to take really good care of my devices, but occasionally I will drop one and the otter box has kept them safe so far. My only complaint is the plastic screen protector. I much prefer glass and as far as I am aware, you can't use a glass screen protector with this case. It seems that I always get some sort of bacterial or fungal growth underneath the plastic and I have to take it off periodically to clean it.

      I got this case because it would protect the iPad, my ultimate investment. I can draw with the case, but I think I will cut the screen out because the reason why I got the iPad Pro was to be able to digitally draw. The screen hinders the pressure Sensitivity feature of the iPad . One other negative factor is that the otterbox power button didn’t align with the button on the ipad, so screenshots and turning off the iPad is difficult. I think I might have a faulty otterbox case. It all it’s a great case, but I should of tested it before I got it, because it was expensive

        Hi Rockstar,

        We're honored that you chose us to protect your "ultimate investment!" Our apologies that you're experiencing some touch sensitivity and alignment issues. Our expert Otters would love to help troubleshoot the fit of the case, so please feel welcome to call them at 1-855-688-7269, and they'll help align the case perfectly. As for the screen protector, we would not necessarily recommend cutting it out, as this can decrease the maximum protective qualities of the unit. However, we do engineer other styles of case for this specific device. Designs such as the Symmetry series, which does not have a built-in screen protector, might be more up your alley! If you're interested, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions!

        Best,

      I have used Otter Box protective gear for cell phones for years. When purchasing an expensive item such as an iPad Pro 12.9, I would not have chosen any other type of protection. There are many keyboards which have sleeves or flip style cases, but none of them provides this level of pure full device protection, including hard case protection of all four corners and the large screen. The case provides a flip up clip which holds the iPad for viewing or typing with ease. Highly recommend this.

      Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase. After having this otterbox defender case for 2 months, I have a better feel for the product. The greatest advantage is that the plastic cover feels sturdy and has a built in space for your pencil. However, you won't be able to put a silicone pencil cap if you choose to store your pencil in your case. A small disadvantage is that the iPad will need to be separated from its hard shell cover in order to charge the device.

      I purchased 2 of these and found that the screen sensitivity wasn’t comparable to other versions that otter box sold. We returned the product and even the new product the screen sensitivity was poor. I had to purchase glass screens and replace the screens that came with the Otterbox product. Until they fix sensitivity of the screen included with this product I wouldn’t recommend the version as it is out of the box.

        Hi Bubba055,

        We're sorry to hear that you've had some rotten luck with the screen protector on this Defender series! Had you contacted us, we would have been more than happy to set you up with some troubleshooting tips, or even a warranty replacement. Removing any part of the case can jeopardize the protective integrity of the unit, as well as void the warranty; however, our friendly Otters would still love to see you to use the product as originally intended. Please feel welcome to call them at 1-855-688-7269, and they'll get you into a smooth new replacement case as soon as possible!

        Sincerely,

      Pros looks VERY durable, holds iPen Cons touch screen won’t work well if you have a tempered glass screen cover, it’s pretty heavy and won’t work with my iPad holder (Octa spider-monkey) because of the extra weight, also I couldn’t find a keyboard made for the case either If I could keep the tempered glass screen protector on I would keep this but it’s just not functional with it and that’s a must for me

        Hey there Rmm350z,

        We're sorry to see that the Defender series case just didn't work out for you! Unfortunately, we are unable to test our products with third-party accessories, so we cannot guarantee 100% compatibility with any items made from different companies, including iPad holders and tempered glass screen protectors. If you have any additional OtterBox questions, please don't hesitate to give our cheerful Otters a quick call at 1-855-688-7269. They'll always be happy to help!

        Regards,

      As with all otterbox products especially the defender series again otterbox has made a functioning product that does what they say which is totally protects your device from damage. I’ve used otterbox defender for my phone and now for my iPad and I feel 100% confident with the protection it provides. If you want to insure your iPad is protected from dust and accidental drops, then otterbox defender is the only way to go even at the higher price.
