    This is not a nice product

    After one month of having it the tab for the earphones broke off. After one year of having it a tab for the charging port broke off. The outer rubber keeps falling off I have to constantly push it back in with my fingernail. The only good thing about it is that I have dropped my iPad numerous times with this cover and my pad is good. Which now shows by the silicone on all four corners being torn. I am now searching for a new cover

    Griffin - Survivor protector case

    I used only otterbox protector cases for my ipad mini, but the screen always cracked!! I have 4 ipads for 4 kids. The last ipad I bought I decided to try something different. So far, I haven't had any cracks. Although, I did pair it up with a ZAGG invisible shield protector. The case is super hard to put on. I am a 33 year old mom, and I couldn't push the back of the case on. I tried a few times until I gave up. My husband had no problem. lol

    This is a very thick, heavy case. It doubles the weight of the iPad mini. (But that still isn't very heavy.) It is more masculine looking then I would've preferred but protecting my investment is why I bought it, so who cares. It has a stand that can be used vertically or horizontally. The only downside is that due to its protective nature, it partially obscures the touch button & therefore, it doesn't always read my thumbprint. Well priced for the heavy duty quality.

    Good Grip

    Tablets, unlike phones are destined to not fall so much and you need not have so much of a fear of dropping them off, But with the latest phones that are high priced, this tablet has almost similar size compared to those. Hence, for the sake of protection, I thought to get a case. And I love every aspect of it. This has a good grip and does give my tablet an authentic look with a classy feel. There is no chance of a drop now and the grip is amazing. A worthy purchase.

    Unnecessarily difficult

    This is the absolute most inconvenient and low quality case I’ve ever purchased! There is a clearance and fit issue at the charger input on my son’s. Now my daughter’s tablet will not shut off, as the case will not allow it. The worst part is, I can’t get the cases off.....patiently waiting for Griffins customer service to email me back

    Stylish protection for my kid's device

    It looks good, is easy for small hands to grip securely and has protected the iPad mini for several scary drops. The only down side is that you have to have a very narrow earphone plug or it won't properly lock into place while the case is on (earbuds are fine, some of our earphones have had too thick of a plug). But as far as I'm concerned, this is a MINOR complaint.

    Complete Protection

    This case is absolutely amazing! It affords you complete protection of your iPad Mini 4. No more worries about spills or drops! If you have to use your Mini for something that requires removal from the case, it can be done but takes a little more time than cases that provide less protection.

    Nice idea but poor quality

    The case itself is a great idea however the slide on back does not like to stay locked on and the soft button covering ripped after a short time of use. The case is on an iPad used by a lady in her 70's that is very careful with items. I will not be purchasing it for my child's ipad.

    I have always had good experiences with the Survivor brand, even though I am quick to buy Otterbox. But for the price and offering the same specs, I was delighted to go with this. Great low price for the features offered, and have not had a problem yet, even though I’ve dropped my device a couple of times already.

    Quality product. Great stand options for watching streaming videos. Rugged design. The only problem is that the fingerprint touch doesn't work all the time and sometimes tapping the screen on the device doesn't work sometimes. Might be some air pockets causing obstruction of these features.

    Case fit well on My Ipad, feels well cushioned and sturdy and should protect it if I happened to drop it. Love the 2 position kickstand feature and the fact that it is removable so I can still put the Ipad in my drone's remote control without having to remove the case.

    This is a good case if you’re worried about scratching or breaking your iPad. It is doing a great job so far. The case is also nice if you take a lot of pictures and don’t want to deal with reopening a case every time.

    Purchased this case for my 9 year old and 6 year olds iPads. Case withstands impact from drops, with no problems whatsoever. Been several months now since purchase and iPads remain like new inside the protective case.

    Came to the store looking for an Otterbox for an iPad mini, but they were sold out. I found this Griffin Survivor case instead and was impressed. Seems to be good protection. Time will tell.

    This case does what it's supposed to do. Only flaw I see is that the protective cover over the power button is difficult to press, which makes it hard to manually turn the iPad off. Other than that, it's a good case.

    This is the second survivor case I bought. I was hoping that it would hold up like my last one but after only a few days I already see deep scratches on the screen protector. I suggest buying something else

    Bought this thinking my son would like the stand on it, but i was wrong...that is fine. Main reason was to protect it if dropped and it does that just fine!

    I seems to protect my ipad as expected. I haven't taken it on a long back packing trip yet. I just need to find some rubber to glue onto the sides so it doesn't keep slipping around my car or table top.

    Very good case for people looking for something that will really protect their device. The instructions to putting it on the device can be a bit confusing but still highly recommend.
