    Best Overall iPad Case We've Had.

    Yes, this case will envelop your iPad to keep it safe, but it looks sharp too! While there is not any protector on the screen itself (like with some Otterbox phone cases), this doesn't appear to be a problem as there's the "folio" portion that we usually close over it when we move around. The "folio" portion and the said otter's box can pop apart and back together again, has we found when our 2-year-old accidentally kicked it. But everything is fine, because we had it protected. The one wish we have that is not met is that the case would have a way for the iPad to stand at or near 90 degrees, but that is not quite attainable with this design. Our old case could because it had a metal hinge, but it was a keyboard case whose plastic connector broke when this same 2-year-old threw it on the ground. Or maybe that was me on accident.

    The IPAD AIR is very light in weight, which seemed very nice, but gave me a feeling that it might be fragile. The Otter Box Case seemed heavy, a feeling, to which I became accustomed. Opening the lid gives one the option of laying the lid all the way to the back and holding IPAD flat or opening the lid and pulling the IPAD forward and the back becomes a built-in triangle stand, which is convenient for holding on one's knee while sitting or reclining. Then unopened box that it came in does not make clear whether the case will put the IPAD to sleep when it is closed, some others I looked at did not, but the OTTER BOX does. I would buy it again.

    Even My Mom Loves This Case

    I recently upgraded my mom's iPad to the latest model, but I forgot to get her a case for it. Her biggest complaint about the new iPad was that it felt too light, and she was scared of dropping it. I took her to the local Best Buy and showed her this case. I've always had great luck with OtterBox products over the years, so I was hoping she would like this one. After looking it over, she said she would give it a try. A few weeks later, I've only heard great things from her regarding the case. She loves how it feels in her hands, and it makes her feel the iPad is really protected. This is a win!

    The cover fit very tightly onto my iPad Air 2. I charged it up in the cover. I used it at work over night. The next day the iPad was dead so I plugged it in. It did not do anything. It did not even show the notification that it was plugged in. I let it set for hours and still nothing. I switched plug ins and let it set for more hours, still nothing. I took the cover off and let it charge over night. It came on. I have not put the cover back on. I do not know if it was a contributing factor to this but I have not had the problem sense. Nor did I have it before.

    This folio case fits excellent with my iPad Air 2. I love the versatility of it. Some complain that it makes the iPad Air 2 too heavy and this was sort of true in the beginning for me. I have gotten use to it though and now it feels like a part of me. I wouldn't change it at all and I feel secure with the protection it provides. This is my 2nd folio though. The first one, I had to return because it was missing the magnets. It's too bad that the quality control in assembling is lacking but it is a great product.

    Good and Heavy

    Bought this case to protect an iPad Air used by a kid. I’m confident the case will do its job but the added weight was almost a reason to return it. If it were my iPad, I would choose something else. Otherwise, case is good because it props up the screen at usable angles and the part of the case that’s makes contact with the screen when closed doesn’t make contact with the surface being used.

    Good until you drop it

    I expected this case to be quite heavy, as most of reviewers warn you of this factor. It was a terrible pain to get on the first time, but after that it's easier. I would not recommend removing it until you're done using it because onc it loosens up the protection is comprised. I dropped it in exactly the wrong way, I suppose, because the folding cover popped off the back and now it's useless because it won't stay attached to the shell cover. Here I am shopping for another case only a month later. At least the iPad is still okay, which is why I gave it as many stars as I did.

    Solid case and stand for the iPad Air 2

    The Otterbox Symmetry Series provides great protection for the tablet. The cover and stand are excellent. I just wish there was a way to use the case when the iPad is upright. Also, the flap is a little cumbersome at times. The Best Buy employee was extremely helpful in picking this case. I needed the protection and wanted the face covered when not in use. My iPad is also shared with my children. I wanted something durable and it's fairly easy to install and remove. Would have given a 5-star rating if the flap wasn't so cumbersome.
