    Great casual case

    Ok it is not a heavy duty case like for construction or children. For a casual look and functionality it is really good. It protects your ipad with a nice cushion padding; the rubberized rotating insert that holds the ipad does a 360 degree turn and works as a stand. The way it is designed it directs the speaker sound to the user. It is sturdy enough to last a good while and keep your ipad protected. My daughter had a similar targus for her ipad mini and wanted the same for my ipad. It is a nice sleek not too bulky functional folio/case for an ipad. It should fit the 6th gen ipad, the package of the one I purchased had a sticker suggesting it did and it does fit like a glove. An elastic strap can secure the folio from opening keeping it protected inside luggage or backpack. I can highly recommend it and I am very happy with it.

    We bought the newest iPad (the 5th generation, not the Pro line) directly from Apple back in May 2017 and were surprised to learn that even Apple themselves didn't have any full cases for It; Apple only had the Smart Cover. The Apple "Genuises" suggested that any cover made for the iPad Air 4 would work, but that is an inaccurate statement - the iPad Air 4 and the newest iPad are different enough (lenses placement, lightning port location) that trying to use an iPad Air case on the iPad was frustrating. Then a friend bought the same iPad as us, and, as luck would have it, they were strolling through Best Buy when they saw this case from Targus. It had a sticker on it that said it fit the latest iPad so they took a chance. And low and behold, it does! Everything lines up and it is a very sturdy case. We bought the black version and couldn't be happier. Our only gripe is the price, and think that it could be a little cheaper, but we can't fault the fit and finish. A very well made case.

    Excellent Case for my iPad Gen. 6

    I recently purchased this case for my new iPad Gen. 6. I had the older version of this case for my iPad 2, so I specifically looked for this updated version when I bought my new iPad. I like the way this case fits the iPad and provides the option of rotating it to orient the home button on the left or the right. This is important, for instance, when charging the iPad so that the cable can be closer to the electrical outlet. The case holds the iPad securely in place and protects the edges, screen, and back of the device. The case comes in several colors, but I chose the black case because it was on sale when I bought my iPad.

    Was skeptical initially when I purchased this in my local BestBuy store together with my iPad Air 2. My wife didn't like the look initially but after 2 weeks of used, we are sold. We like it because: 1) Offers great protection, including corners, with optimal weight and thickness. 2) Feels really good on the hand when reading iPad laying on bed (don't recommend you do this, but this is me) 3) Rotates and holds the iPad firmly, giving both portrait and landscape orientations. 4) Excellent grip and the multi-positions/angles are more than enough. 5) Excellent fit, with all the holes/slots nicely crafted. 6) Does not muffle the speakers! This is important to me at least. The only thing I don't like about it (minor and could be just a personal preference): I don't like the open hold at the back, which let's you see the Apple logo. I prefer to have it fully covered, but noticed that many other vendors do the same thing.

    Great protection for your iPad

    When I bought my iPad Pro, I wanted to buy a case for it, but every one I saw in Best Buy was in my opinion, too expensive, so I bought one online for a significantly lower price. When the new case arrived, the feel of it was cheap, and the stand keep collapsing every time I touched the screen, but I expected that in a sub $15 case. What concerned me was how thin it was. I quickly realized this case would not protect my iPad if it were dropped. Luckily, I had some Reward Points to redeem, as well as a coupon, so I used them to purchase this case. What a difference! This case is very sturdy and well built. I'm not as concerned as I was before about damage from impacts. I still think the case is a little overpriced, however, don't trust your expensive investment with cheap protection.

    Quality protection for your Ipad

    To sum up my review: I purchased one years ago for an earlier Ipad--found it worked and held up so well I gravitated to one for my new Ipad too. The original did finally fail to protect the device after five years--but I submit dropping the Ipad down a set of concrete stairs is an extreme test (sigh!). I looked at competing items and still found this to be one of the best--and it is improved from my older one in that the plastic holding the Ipad in is softer and appears to have a "cushion" (some air space) to better handle shocks... like, say maybe those concrete stairs... purchase with confidence!

    Good solution for iPad Pro

    The Versa Folio is a good choice. It's a little thick, but that provides good protection for the iPad Pro. It doesn't add a lot of weight. The rotating iPad holder allows you to use it in landscape or portrait orientation on a desk or on your lap. Fold the cover back and you can easily hold it in one hand. The perforated, flexible holder grips the iPad tightly with little or no chance for it to fall out. There is no magnet closure, but there is an elastic band to keep it closed. The leather-like cover feels good in my hand. The little scoops for the iPad Pro speakers to direct the sound out work very well. My favorite feature is that I can put it on my lap and the folio holds my iPad steady in a variety of viewing angles.

    Stand-by iPad Air-2 Folio

    I purchased this particular iPad folio to use in place of my Logitech keyboard case. One of my sisters had been using one for quite a while and I thought it had nice features -- two different positions/angles for your iPad, felt padding which keeps your iPad from slipping and offers cushioning for your iPad, and an elastic strap that is attached to the back of the folio keeping your iPad secure should you bump it against something or even drop it. Probably, the only thing I would change would be the color. I really wanted a purple, turquoise, or teal but purchased a red one. I don't think there were many color choices of the "Targus-Classic Versavu Folio" for the 9.7-inch Apple Air 2, at least not in the store I was in.

    A durable case for your Ipad

    My husband needed a new case for his Ipad, but the majority of the ones we were looking at were either too expensive (over $75) or not the right size (he has a new version of the Ipad) Enter the Targus classic VersaVu case. Great price (and it was on sale, making it an even better value) and fit the Ipad like a glove. We've used Targus VersaVu cases before, so we trust the name, and I've had one on mine since I bought it 3 years ago. I would recommend this case to anyone who wants good protection without paying through the nose. NOTE: This is not a waterproof case, but since I don't use my electronics near water, this fit my needs perfectly.

    As soon as my new iPad pro came to my house I ran to Best Buy to grab an affordable & GOOD case for the new toy! I was pretty familiar with Targus products in the past and decided to try this model as it his both 3 for me- 1) affordability 2) style 3) protection/functionality works great around the house and carrying with me around town! Works great while using itunes/programs that use audio etc.

    Bought one of these in black for my wife last Xmas to go with her whatever generation iPad Air or "newest version" iPad or whatever they are calling the non-Pro model now. She uses it primarily in horizontal mode, but the vertical is good for emails and Facetime. This is not a THIN case, but it is really protective. Both my wife and daughter keep their ipads at home, so the bulk is not an issue. As for the color...WOW, that is really a hot RED. This is the color that my daughter wears to her dance competitions...to really stand out. But as long as you're a fan of lipstick red, then this is a great case

    - Case is stiff and keeps iPad mini in landscape mode perfectly. I've had iPad mini cases in the past that did a bad job keeping the device in landscape mode. - Device locks into the case snugly and the screen is unobstructed. I don't like cases that use corner straps or curl over the top to keep the iPad in place. Again, Logitech scores high with me with a seamless fit. - Case has the magnet in the corner to put the device to sleep when closed and when the cover is opened, the screen lights up. - Case material looks durable and I anticipate it will last a long time - I don't have anything to report that would be a negative.

    I was looking for a rotating cover, but I was concerned about the elastic band closure. I was familiar with the magnetic closure Targus but it didn't rotate. And 2 Speck closure tabs has snapped off prior covers. I am glad that I finally settled on this one. The elastic band seems strong enough to last the life of my iPad. And the rotating feature is used more than I expected. The red color means I don't misplace it easily! All around great product.

    This Targus case fit easily around my new iPad. It is a fabulous red color, so it is both pretty and easy to find. Black was also available. The top stitching makes it look classy, and the thickness makes it sturdy. I have only had it a few months, but I venture to say it will last for many years. I also like the stand up feature which allows four possible angles. To be fair, this cover adds weight to your iPad, so if you want light weight more than you want protection, you might opt for a less sturdy, less expensive cover. I, however, am very happy with my choice.

    Good cover for Air iPad

    My previous cover fell apart so I needed a replacement. This has been an excellent cover. I was initially hesitant to purchase it as there was no hole for the speakers. Upon closer review the cover has "scoops" that direct the sound to the front so it is better than my previous cover that had holes for the speaker. The housing around the iPad is rubber providing flexibility to remove and install without fear of breaking the cover. It rotates 360 degrees and turns off the iPad when closed. I would recommend this product.

    When I got a new iPad Air i couldn't find a case like my old one. This is the closest and works really well. I wanted a case that the top flap would fold under the iPad its self to form a 3 dimension raised bed to keep the iPad at an easy to read but stable angle. (Think long triangle) the top also has the grooves most covers have but I find that the slightest bump and the iPad flattens. The iPad can be rotated so that the button is on the correct side whether your have your iPad slanted standing up high or laying slanted low. The cover also closes the iPad to to sleep mode. I love it.

    I received the new IPad for Christmas from my husband, My concerns were that I wanted a secure and well made case for it. I shopped at several stores for just the right one and this Targus case is perfect! I bought the red one, it is super durable protects the entire I Pad. I love that you can see the Apple logo through the back of the case. I definitely would recommend this case to anyone that wants a secure and great looking one

    Love this folio and how it pivots 360 for landscape or portrait position. It is pretty rugged and feels like it will last and take a beating. I fold it back alot to use it one handed and it's not too thick for me to one hand it while I'm watching TV and surfing, etc. I bought this almost half price after buying my new iPad on Black Friday sale but I would have bought it at the regular price if I would have had to. I give it a thumbs up and recommend!

    This is probably one of the better cases for the iPad as far as protection and usability. The swivel design allows for portrait view which is great for recipes or hands free browsing. The cover has magnets so the screen goes dark when it's closed, plus you have the elastic band that holds it in place. The build quality seems solid and appears to offer adequate protection for casual home use. The only con I feel is the price is a bit aggressive. I feel this is because it's priced towards the "pro" iPad although it fits the new iPad.

    Love this new cover for our new iPad just purchased. Easy to stand iPad up, completely protects it as promised. Very sturdy! Had one with the old iPad...over 5 years and knew I wanted another Targus due to its wear and tear factor. Highly suggest getting these for your iPads. Rotates, swivels, has strap to keep it closed. There is even an area on the front to hold your pen or stylus. Bought red this time, over black last time, to make it easier to spot when heading thru TSA/airports in their scan bins. Very durable!
