    Great case if you don't use the Apple Pencil much

    Ok, so the reason I gave this case 3 stars is because of the longevity of the Apple Pencil slot in the back. It's one of the main selling points of the case because the iPad Pro doesnt have a slot for you to carry your pencil. So I got this for my girlfriend and she really loves the case! It's kinda like an otter box. You have your silicone protector in the outer side and the hard body protector towards inner part of the case. It's perfect if you need that extra protection and the case even has a stand so you can watch videos without a problem! The only problem that occurred was that the slot for the Apple Pencil would wear down fast if you take out the Apple Pencil a lot. My girlfriend used the Apple Pencil a lot so she would constantly pull it out of the slot to start drawing on her new tablet. This is were the 2 stars are taken off from a 5 star product. After about 2 months of use; the silicone that supports the Apple Pencil slot started to wear off fast so it wouldn't store your Pencil fully secured. This is a big deal because if you have the Apple Pencil but can't store it anymore than that $40 case just became a $20 case. What upsets me is that fixing it yourself is troublesome. We've tried crazy glue and now my girlfriends using rubber cement... I'd recommend this product only if it was on sale or if you don't use your Apple Pencil much.

    Good protection, bad execution

    This case is great fitting and protects the i-pad pro 9.7 from everyday drops and wear. The screen protector is horrible, however, and severely blurs the beautiful screen of the pro while also badly reducing the accuracy of the i-pencil. I do also have a zagg glass screen protector so that may have been part of it. Luckily the plastic sheet of the screen protector is easily removed as the adhesive is a gummy type and peels off the main case frame. There is a clip for the i-pencil but it is on the back and gets in the way while holding the ipad or digs in while it sits on your lap. The clip broke after a couple weeks because of its intrusive nature, luckily it is also removeable. The built-in stand works perfectly and the overall fit of the case is great, plus the price would have me recommend this with caveats.

    Decent protection but you get what you pay for

    Got this when I bought my new iPad and Apple Pencil because I didn't want to drop another $100 on an otter box case. This held up alright for a while but it broke after falling only 3 feet or so onto tile. I believe the advertised protection was for 6ft of drop protection. I seem to remember the Apple Pencil holder breaking as well? Long story short, I ended up with an otter box case that wasn't quite as beefy but is good quality and I would look at one of their higher protection models if I was planning on having this outdoors with me or at the work site a lot.

    I purchased this product after reading so many reviews about other products. Several of deciding factors. #1. Protection for my I pad #2. Something to hold on to my I pencil . #3 Works with keyboard. I like the case and it seems to protect my I pad. It fits well and I did not have any problems with it working with my keyboard. BUT: the plactic pencil holder broke off causing me to loose my $99.00 pencil. I am not happy about that

    All is great with my new ipad cover. I love the color! I do wish it was water proof so I could use it while soaking in the hot tub, but the bottom of this cover is open and it is not protected from water like my last update. I also have to agree with other reviews that the pencil holder on the back broke within a few weeks. I don't use it so it is not an issue but they do need to address the issue.

    I bought this case for my new iPad and really liked it at first. But then the "bumper" pieces on the Apple Pencil holder started coming off. I exchanged it, but the other one in store was having the same problem before I even got it home. The case itself is great but the Apple Pencil holder is a lost cause for sure. Especially for a feature that supposed to hold something that costs $100.

    The pencil holder broke within a couple of days. I finally used a screwdriver and took it off because it was a pain. There is an open side which lets all the dust and dirt in. There is also no cover on the front to put it to sleep and block the screen light when notifications come in. Not what I expected at all. Thankfully I did get it on sale so the blow was not as hard.

    I first got this case because it's super cute and not BLACK! plus it's compatible with my apple keyboard for the Ipad pro. When I first got it in the mail the pencil holder on the back was broken, so I called and had another one sent it. In less than a week is had broken again. This just may be my luck but then case isn't built very well, and the pencil holder is quite flimsy.

    An iPad was mandatory for my daughter's new school. All the parents said to be sure to get a protective case. This one was recommended by a sales associate and my daughter loved the fun color. My daughter isn't delicate and the protector has helped save the iPad from multiple throws to back of our SUV and survive the many bumps of her 6th grade backpack.

    I like the cover itself but within 24 hours of receiving ,the pencil holder broke off . This is a concern because this was one of the reasons I purchased. I needed a product to attach my pencil to so I would not lose my $99.00 investment. I really don't see that The hard plastic stamd on the back cover looks to be easily broken also.

    The case itself is sturdy and I liked the stand to prop it up. The reason I returned it was a huge gap at the bottom where the Apple keyboard is supposed to attach. I don't plan on using the keyboard so this feature is useless for me. They could have included an optional tpe filler to cover the gap and I probably would have kept it.

    The only thing I like about this case is the built in screen protector. One whole side is open to let dust and whatever else in to your iPad. The pencil holder broke within days (I popped it off because I wasn't using it anyway). I think I would recommend it if the side was not open.

    Pencil holder doesn't last

    Dominique

    I bought this for $77 (with tax) for the pencil holder case design. The pencil holder has rubber edges that fell of after two days making the case unable to hold a pencil. Also the case gets real dirty. I had high hopes for this product and threw away the packaging so now I can't return it.

    I read all the reviews and it seemed comparable to an Otterbox. I haven't had any issues, but with small children, even with the case I am super protective. I like that the keyboard can be attached, however, that does leave one side open so the case doesn't cover the entire Ipad

    Everything is fine except for the left side, the part where you connect the official apple keyboard, the part where Is he magnet receptor... the case is open. That means that the iPad is Not 100% protected. Not even the screen is protected 100% from the dust.

    I sure made the right choice here. I put this new survivor on my new iPad pro just in time. Five minutes after it was on, I knocked it off my kitchen counter onto my hard tile floor. It actually bounced .highly recommend this griffin survivor protective cover

    I purchased this case to protect the iPad from my kids. So far, it has done an excellent job. I haven't had a cracked screen yet and it has been dropped a few times. I would recommend purchasing this case if you want excellent protection for your iPad.

    Its seem that protecting your hand held device can be as costly as the device itself. This product is no exception..Given its cost I found it to be very poorly constructed. Within a week the stylus holder on rear of unit broke off with minimal use

    Perfect case if it was waterproof

    This case would be perfect if it were only waterproof as well. That being said, it's a minor thing and this case is fantastic. Taking the pen holder off was a bit of a pain though as that is in the way and useless if you have no use for the pen.
