    Great case; gives me confidence protection

    Adds some thickness (but not much weight) to the iPad Pro, but it has a good feel/good grip, and I like the military drop protection. I haven't dropped my iPad Pro (and I will always do my best not to but it's nice to have this in the back of my mind that it wouldn't shatter!) I like the wake/sleep of the closing of the lid (similar to the Apple magnetic covers but theirs don't offer the all around protection like this.) My only complaint is that it can be awkward sometimes to get it to sit correctly in a stand - I have a Lamicall stand for it which is great - and I also have the tempered glass on this from Zagg with absolutely nothing impeded from the case. It might be a little over-kill to have both but I feel better with both. This reminds me of the feel of the bumper case I have for my iPhone (added thickness and drop protection confidence). One thing that doesn't stand up to their claim is that I have not found it easy to "prop up" like they say it can by just turning the lid around and positioning it a certain way. There are no "notches" in the lid so it seems to slip easily out of how it's positioned. But as a protection for such an expensive and valuable device, this is highly recommend!!!!

    Nice, Solid Case

    I recently had a case made by Logitech for my iPad Air 2 that I was really pleased with, but it finally broke (I dropped it...) and I was really looking for something that was similar. Unfortunately, it wasn't available. This case is well made and sturdy. It does feel like it adds a bit of extra width and weight to it, but that's kind of what I was looking for. The fact that it comes with cover that can be flipped over to use as a stand was just like the case that I had previously and great for using your iPad to watch videos/Netflix and unlike the other one, this one has a magnetic "latch" tab which prevents it from easily falling open. The only real Cons are that it is slightly too thick to fit perfectly into the book/tablet holders on Ellipticals, etc. and that some of the extra padding makes the distance from the case to the volume, power buttons, and headphone jack seem pretty big. Good buy, especially for the price.

    I like the fact that all edges of the ipad are covered with this case, but I’m not sure about the flared edges around the speakers. It allows dust to get in. The case it self is sturdy when closed, but since the case is held in the center of the back instead of along the edge (like apple’s case), it wiggles a lot when u have it flipped open on your lap. This is not a problem if u have it placed on a non angled surface, but since I usually have it on my lap, it gets a little annoying. However, given the choices out there, it’s the best that I can get for protecting all corners of my ipad so I’m keeping it. If however they change the design so that the flap attaches along the edge instead of the back, I’d swap it out.

    Great Rubberized Case

    Have had 3 iPads over the years, and like the protection that rubberized cases give. The Targus 3D case is supposed to fit the 2018 iPad. It does fit, but sometimes slips out of the case along the sides, and requires very slight readjustment at times, It has NEVER popped off of the corners, which is terrific. Really protects all sides and corners well. Magnetic closure is EXCELLENT...sleep/ wake function works well. Buttons are a little too recessed for my liking, as compared to cases I have previously had.,...Very sleek , trim case...folds back flat, unlike most cases. Returned Targus Versa Vue for that reason. Versa Vue was too floppy for me.

    Flawed Design

    This case looks great and the version made for the iPad Air 2 looks very similar but they are very different. Unfortunately for this case when you fold the top cover flap back it has nothing to attach to, the magnet just flops and hangs around and becomes uncomfortable to hold onto. Also because the case and breaks into a standing design the back flap is not attached at the edge of the iPad but rather the middle. Overall for me it just made for a sloppy design which wasn't useful enough even with the added protection and I ended up returning it. If you're only concern is protection then I think you'll be fine but if you're looking for form and function look elsewhere.

    This is an inexpensive cover for the iPad Air 2. It is full coverage with front cover flap. The edges and corners have a little bit of extra padding too. It probably wouldn't survive a fall from the 2nd floor, but from the top of the desk it should help. The cover stays in place when shut with the help of a bit that wraps around to the back of the case. The texture is nice and keeps the device from being slick. I have not had too many issues with the inside of the cover leaving dirt/grease on the cover like I have had with older covers in the past. Propping up the iPad using the case is a little limited. I think there are only two positions really. Good enough for use on a desk mainly. For the price, this is a great cover to get!

    A few months ago I purchased the Targus 3D case for my teenage son who has a mini iPad. His case is holding up well compared to other cases he had previously for his mini iPad. He told me he really liked the case. As my older case also was starting to wear out I purchased the Targus 3D case for my iPad Air. This case also fits with the 2017 iPad as I checked as my wife has the new iPad. The case is light weight and seems to be durable. I did notice that when I have the iPad in landscape mode propped up on the case cover the iPad will slide down when angled to stay up in the case. Even so I can fold the case so the cover is behind the iPad as I stand it on a table or a bed and it will stay up.

    This replaced a Targas case that has been on my iPad Air for a couple of years. I broke it dropping the iPad down a 15 step flight of stairs. The pad was unharmed. I was a bit disappointed that i could not find the same Targas case but this one seemed close. It fits even better, the on-off magnetic function is improved and the locking tab on the bottom that was not on my first case keeps it from opening while in my carry bag. The protection level seems even better without any additional bulk or weight. It has the same adjustable angle scheme for propping the pad when desired. Very happy with this purchase

    I got this case right when I got my iPad Pro 9.7 because if I didn't get it when I got the iPad I would have just put it off at a later date and then it would turn into I just don't want to spend the money but I'm glad I did it's slim and form fitting which I love and it's not bulky I wanted to get the apple cases but I thought it was a rip off paying like $70 to cover the back of the iPad and then if you want to front covered you have to spend another $50 or $60 so I was like no I will get something else and so I got this it's a great case you need to buy you won't regret it!!!

    Tragus -3D folio case for Apple iPad

    I love this protective case. My grandson left my iPad on top of my car and we drove away. Something like that usually ends in disaster, right. Not with this case. The 3D Folio case did not slide an inch. Now I don’t recommend driving around with your products on top of your car, but in my case, it saved my ipads life. This is a very sturdy case and I would recommend it to anyone who buys an iPad.

    Good fit, needs flat surface to stand well

    Happy to give my money to Best Buy, especially since they match Amazon's pricing. Purchased a different model and returned it after the case did not quite grip/hold the iPad as well as I wanted on the sides. This model holds well. The exterior feel is not as premium as others, but for the money it was worth it. Only complaint is that when I set it up on my lap to view, it slides forward. Basically it needs a hard flat surface for the friction to hold it up well.

    I’ve had this for a few months now and the quality is above average. I’ve had two other covers and one started peeling apart and the other cracked when I dropped it. The only issue I have so far is when folding back the cover behind iPad there doesn’t appear to be a great way to do that without exposing the part that touches the screen to dirt that could potentially scratch the screen. I also like the magnetic feature of the “clasp.”

    Great on iPad Pro, not so good on iPad 2017

    When I purchased this I had the iPad 2017. It fit good, but I had issues plugging in the charging cord. I found other users had the same issue after the fact. I contacted Targus, but they were not helpful, at all. I was able to upgrade from the iPad 2017 to the iPad Pro 9.7, so I did, The case fit perfect on the iPad Pro 9.7. The only issue I had was that to make the iPad stand upright isn't as great as other cases. Since I usually fold the cover back and have it in my lap, this isn't a big issue for me.

    Sturdy Folio

    Good protection. I like the space-age triangle design on the front cover. The added thickness of the back makes the iPad easier to hold. However, the thickness of the backing near the headphone port prevents the use of some headphone jacks with large barrels. I have not had any issues with the iPad sliding down when using the stand as some reviewers have mentioned. Also, the "sound scoops" do an OK job of not blocking the sound from the speakers, but I rarely use the built-in speakers anyway.

    Bought this case for my niece and she loves it. It feels sturdy. The material feels like a combination of plastic and rubber, allowing it to somewhat flex but sturdy enough to endure being dropped and decrease risk of being bent. I haven't used it much but I really like how it doubles as a self-supporting stand so it's hands free if you need to set it down.

    I tried a variety of cases and keyboards including Logitech, Brydge, Zagg. This is the least expensive of the lot but works the best for me. It holds the ipad securely, has a nice texture inside and holds the ipad at several viewing positions, has a protective look and feel, is light and compact...it does not have a key board, but I think you can use any external bluetooth keyboard when you need it. This is the case I chose, after several trials with other cases, and I like it very much!

    other cases have hard plastic grip for ipad that crack or break. this one has a semi-soft material that flexed and grips the ipad. cover has magnetic latch. design is appealing and quality is good. a little heavy but that just means its protective. function to view table top variable angle seems good due to grip surface, recommended to my wife who akso bought

    Went in to my local Best Buy needing an iPad case. After looking around at all the options, I settled on this one by Targus. It's a nice sturdy case that slips on easy around the iPad and won't come off during use. Gave 4 stars because it's functional and seems like it offers good protection and could handle a few drops. Not amazing, but most likely the best bang for your buck if you don't want to break the bank getting a case named after an aquatic sea animal.

    Having once dropped an iPad two from a kitchen table, shattering the screen and ending its usefulness, a protective case was a must. This one is reasonably priced and will protect from most drops and substances. Unfolds into convenient stand for the device and has built in screen to protect from scratches and dirt/smudges. Only complaint is the way it and others are designed, the volume button on iPad is on top and one has to remember that the left side of button is volume increase.

    I really like this cover. It gives sturdiness to my iPad as I travel and I feel confident in keeping my iPad safe. 2 minor disappointments: 1. It’s a little heavy. Not bad, but it has minimal extra weight. In a backpack with a lot of other stuff, it adds up. 2. It doesn’t stay propped up very well. It’s ok but it does slip a little and falls down once in a while. Overall, I’m very happy with it and would buy it again.
