    This case fits my wife's 6th generation iPad perfectly. Thankfully, we haven't yet put its level of protection to the test. Ultimately, that would be my single most important criterion to evaluate, but I hope we never find out. One thing I really do like is that it has numerous sets of indentations with which to prop up the iPad when it's folded over into a stand. This is far superior to what I've seen in other cases of this style, which usually have only one or two indentations, so you can never get the angle just right.

    Usually specks makes OK Products how they had bought this together with an iPad for Christmas gifts unfortunate we have a very destructive child but this protective casing has proven to go above and beyond its purpose. The child question manage to get Ahold of the iPad attached to this front it and performed his own dropped test from a 3rd floor Balcony. To my surprise the only damage done was cosmetic to the front of the case which is no longer pink but green I recommend this product to anyone that has little grinches at their house

    Outstanding Ipad Protective Case

    My wife bought this Ipad Protective Case for her new Ipad. She is really pleased with the protective service it has provided. Besides using it for herself, she uses the Ipad to entertain our granddaughter (she's two), and this protective case comes in extremely handy. The protective case has prevented many possible breakages due to our granddaughter's handling of the Ipad itself. We recommend this product very highly as the price is also very reasonably for the service it provides.

    Not a good fit

    I bought this with the iPad (6th generation 9.7") hoping to protect my purchase. It did that however the fit wasn't good. One corner kept popping up so I didn't feel secure with the case. It was the only available case at the time that said it fit my iPad. Since I also purchased the pencil, I found another case that was a better fit and had space for my pencil. This was a well built case and I loved the lock when it was closed. Just seemed a bit off for me.

    I absolutely love the Speck line of iPad covers. Out of any covers that I have used over the years with my iPads, these have been the absolute best! I am incredibly hard on my electronics and am guilty of dropping them on more than one occasion. I honestly first bought the Speck cover for the aesthetic appeal; the colors and style options are sleek, but still have a cute appeal to them. However, the quality of the cases have made me a customer for life!

    Apple alternative

    I needed to buy a case for an iPad I purchased for my wife. Apple had many color choices as long as it was black. So I went to Best Buy and was pleased with the colors that was available. It fits very well and protects the screen. My only complaint would be that the angles you can use to prop up the iPad on your lap are to vertical for sitting it on your lap. Does well for laying down on the couch. Still a good investment for protecting your iPad.

    Searched high and low for a good case for my mom, 86 years old. This cover is durable and really attractive, soft to the touch, and holds the iPad upright with minimal positioning - and keeps it in place. We tried it out in the store after looking at many options online. Super happy with this purchase!

    This iPad case is serving its purpose for me. I have a 9.7” pad, I’m a light user and wanted something to protect it. I like that it doesn’t add much bulk to the iPad. I like the plastic snap that keeps it securely shut. I don’t use the stand function much but when I have used it it worked out just fine. So far so good with this one.

    Outstanding Protective IPad Air 2 case

    I have had many cases in the past, nothing compares to this case. Others broke quickly. This protective case really does protect. It’s been dropped, younger kids used it, no problem. Easy to put on. Also can be set up and doesn’t have to be held all the time. So happy with it ...I bought another one! Also have told others about it and get it at Best Buy. Great price!

    I was a little hesitant to buy a cover with no keyboard as I have a keyboard folio case on my 'work' Ipad but I found this case to be all I need for what I am using this Ipad for which is for personal use, reading books, researching, etc. Love the color (you may not!) but I love the whole case.

    All good except the clasp

    The cover is nice and sturdy. Very pretty color. My only complaint is the clasp. It is a thin plastic oval that clips over another small piece. No way is it going to last very long. My son took one look at it and predicted it would be gone by the end of the year. I don't use the ipad that much, so it's still good, but I don't have high hopes.

    I had a Speck cover for my IPad that I really loved but the clasp on it broke and it wouldn't stay closed. I really loved the floral design but Speck discontinued it. I ended up with a solid rose colored one which works great but I wish there were more options to choose from.

    I bought this hoping it would do what it says...my daughter is somewhat clumsy but not intentional. She has accidentally dropped her IPad twice and the screen is cracked and a section of the edge is seperating. I am going to have to send it in to Apple. Btw she has only had it since Christmas!

    There were several types of cases, a few with heft prices. This one was within the price range that we wanted, and I absolutely loved the color. The case enables you to "sit" the pad in place or fold flat while in use. Has a nice "clasp" clousure. This cover protects my new iPad well.

    My husband bought my new Balance following Protective Case for Apple 9.7" iPad , for my new iPad as a birthday gift for me. I had a protective case for my iPad , but it could not hold up my iPad , so I could read. My new iPad case not only allows me to hold the device upright, but also protects it as well.

    I have Speck products protecting all of my Apple devices. My past experience with this company and its products is very positive. Never had one let me down, they always deliver on what they advertise. Well made, functional, reasonable price. Not the cheapest, but you can count on this to perform well.

    I bought this to go with a new iPad for my wife. I had bought one for myself a few years back. It is light and protects the iPad very well. She loved the color and it is different than mine. It also converts into a great stand for FaceTime with the grand kids v

    This is a cute IPAD cover that can used to prop up the screen easily. The only thing I don't like is that when you fold the case over, the IPAD is completely open unprotected and vulnerable to being dropped. You have to be careful when you open the case completely to flip is around.

    Sufficient to protect iPad and can stand up at different angles. Do wish I could rotate the iPad on it, but guess I knew that wasn’t possible when I bought it! Difficult to pop the iPad out of it to put screensaver on it, and a bit of the plastic even broke off of it the first time I needed to do that. Grr!

    The case is pretty good. Once you put it on it's a little hard to take off. Overall I like it, it does what it needs to do which is to protect my tablet and it's screen. Speck is a great company. I've been using their products for years, especially my cell phones.
