    Decent Case with Versatility

    I picked this up during Best Buy's 2017 Black Friday preview sale for $25 instead of the regular $50. I had just picked up a steal on an open box iPad Pro so I was looking for a decent case. First off, Apple decided to not make cases for iPad Pros and instead went the dumb route of spending $40 for a back cover and $40 for a front cover - that aren't connected. I've had good luck with Targus products in the past, so when I saw this on sale for 50% I thought, sure, why not? The outside of the case has a soft, plus leather feel to it. The case also comes with a magnetic clip to keep it closed. This case also supports the Smart Wake function in the iPad as well. The real beauty in this case is that you can rotate the iPad from landscape to portrait while using the case as a stand. This is really helpful for video conferences and FaceTime calls. The case also has a little holder on the rear for your Apple Pencil, which is nice since there's a lot of other cases out there that don't have the feature to cart along what is basically a necessary accessory for any iPad Pro. The only reason I rated it 4 starts is that it adds significant bulk to the iPad Pro. Going from an Apple Smart Case for an iPad Air to this is like going from a coupe to an SUV. There's times where I feel it ruins the aesthetic of the slim iPad Pro, but then again, it offers more protection than the regular Smart Case - so there's a compromise you'll make somewhere. I'm happy with my purchase and I would recommend the Targus VersaView to anyone.

    Sturdy, Great Looking Case

    This was easily the best-looking case available in store. I love the design, the finish, the quality of materials, the level of protection it offers, the magnetic clasp is solid, when watching media the stand offers several viewing angles. One thing that does make this case a bit odd to handle is the location of the stylus strap. Its on the back of the case, along the bound edge, off to one side. The case fits perfectly in bags/sleeves/backpacks if you don't have a stylus attached, but with the stylus and because of its strap location, it doesn't sit flush on surfaces, and you have to be careful trying to fit it into tight pockets. I much prefer the stylus to be on the inside or along the open edge between the top and bottom covers. Its a bit of a personal grievance on an otherwise great case.

    I had the UAG case for the iPad Pro 10.5, and loved every thing about it except, it would never stay up when I would watch a movie. It would always slide down eventually. So I found this case and saw deeper grooves to hold the iPad up. Must say, I can hold this in my lap watching a movie, and my cat will rub her head on the iPad and it won’t fall. The other feature I like , is that you can turn the iPad vertically to read magazines newspaper etc. I took one star off, because the Apple Pencil holder didn’t protect my Apple Pencil and it fell, causing damage to the tip. I bought an extra Apple Pencil holder that protects and buckles the Apple Pencil in, and wraps around my case. Other then that I love this case.

    Pretty nice and durable case...

    It's a pretty durable and nice case for the price. Has a cushioning feel to secure of any drops and protection but one thing Targus forgot to do was make opening for the speakers. It still sounds great but I don't see why they would have them covered by the shell. The biggest complaint I have is it does not go into wake/sleep mode automatically with the cover. I had another case and it was a nice feature to have but not really necessary. Overall, a good cover. I'd check out the other brands if you're looking just for the small things this one lacks. Loving this new ipad 10.5"!!!

    Great protection for new iPad pro

    The iPad fits nicely into the case, and the case has a quality feel to it. Has many possible adjustments including the ability to rotate the tablet and various tilt viewing angles. It's well padded, although due to this feature, the increased weight of holding the tablet can be a bit much over time. This possible downside is easily corrected though if you keep the tablet on your lap or a table. Finally, the case does have slots that allow for the speakers to play well. In fact, I think the sound is improved since the slots project the sound forward.

    Nice cover, but not an improvement

    So I bought the iPad Pro and needed a cover. My Air2 has had a Targus cover since I got it and it's been great so I figured I'd try another. This one is not as great. First off all, it's thicker overall, but doesn't feel as protective. The wrap around still allows for decent sound from the speakers, but it rolls off the edges pretty easily making it feel like the pad is going to pop out. Also, the ridges that hold the ipad in place aren't very deep. I had no issues with the old one holding the device steady, but there's just not as much to dig into with the new one so the pad tips over a lot more easily. It still does the job, just not as well as past revisions of the product.

    This case fits my iPad Pro 10.5 perfectly! It feels and looks premium, has a slot on the rear for the Apple Pencil, and rotates the iPad from landscape to portrait with a simple twist. However, if your the kind of person who is either clumsy, or has small children around, spend the money and get a solid case that offers drop proof protection, this is not that case! This works for me as I have a laptop bag for my Macbook Pro 13" and my iPad (inside this case) goes into a slot in the bag next to my Mac. I would not carry the iPad around in this case by itself. It comes out my bag and onto whatever workstation I'm using, and then back in the bag when I travel to my next destination.

    I had a similar case on my previous I pad, I thought, but this one was different. The material was lightweight but it was made with some material that made it have an odor that I did not like. It got a little better after a few days but it was still there and it bothered me. I also decided that I wanted something thinner and more lightweight and that had a holder for the pencil which this does not have. The great part of this case is the protection it gives and the rotation. As for recommending it, I say give it a try and see if you like it personally.

    I waited for Targus to come out with a case for the new iPad Pro 10.5 and it was worth the wait. Well thought out and feels good to the hand. I have not had the problem of the stylus holder stretching out. One thing to note, while other reviewers are correct that there are no "holes" in the case for the new quad speakers, there are channels formed into the case which open to the front of the iPad. These channels do their job and sound is perfectly okay using this case.

    I've been a fan Targus cases for several years now. The functionality of this case for my 10.5" iPad is great. I especially like that I can turn it to both landscape and portrait mode easily. The feel of this one is different than my last few though and is more slippery in my hands. Not a deal breaker, but worth noting for sure. Having something your can grip that won't slide out of your hand would make this 5 stars.

    I have always gotten targus cases for my iPads but this is the one targus case I haven't loved. For one the case does not have a sleep/wake feature which is a huge oversight on targus's part. Also the pencil holder stretches and I have found my pencil sliding slightly. The case does have four speaker ports for nice sound when watching videos and I love the 360 feature. I hope targus comes out with a new case that has the sleep/wake feature.

    I know people were disappointed by the fact that this case doesn't have the sleep/wake feature, but that doesn't bother me too much; I don't have a problem with pressing a button to turn on my device on and off. The case seems to offer decent protection from short drops, as long as the device doesn't land on one of its corners. If that happens, I hope you purchased the AppleCare, because you'll more than likely be dealing with a cracked screen. Targus makes a lot of high quality cases that offers good protection from drops, but this is not one of them. Keep looking.

    I purchased this case with my 10.5” iPad Pro, and it has served me very well. It took a bit to figure out how to prop the iPad up at all the angles I want (e.g. low for typing, high for viewing) but it does everything I need. The magnetic closure activates the iPad’s auto-wake feature, which is nice, and the magnetic tab folds back and sticks to the back of the case to keep it out of the way when I’m using the iPad. There’s even a spot on the back to store the Apple Pencil, which I look forward to getting soon. Recommended.

    I like this case. It's sturdy and holds my iPad 10.5 well. I haven't dropped it but it looks and feels like you could and not suffer any damage. It has a grippy texture to it so it's not slippery when using it. A lot of reviews say that it doesn't shut down your iPad when you close it. That is wrong. Mine shuts down just fine when it closes. You need to turn on the lock/unlock feature in settings tho. You can find it in:Settings-Display&Brightness-Lock/Unlock. I'm running IOS 11.2.1. Overall I'm happy with this purchase.

    At first I was intimidated by this case because it is VERY purple-y. The case itself is awesome. The external leather is padded and durable, the clasp is magnetic in both front and back, and it has the built-in ability to rotate the device. The harder case that the iPad sits in is also a quality rubberized plastic. I am impressed at the case durability. My ONLY complaint is that I wish there was a place INSIDE the case to store the Apple Pen. The only spot is a loop on the outside of the case.

    Nice product. Does what it's suppost too, but there are a few things yet that I feel could be better. Better vertical and horizontal support. The hole in the back is a bit too small for your hand like the old one. Some play in the rubber/plastic backing that holds the iPad I the case. The band that holds it closed should be positioned elsewhere so it doesn't get in the way of the camera. Other than that, it really is a good product. Good quality.

    First, this is my 4th Targus Versavu case because i buy them for all my iPads. I haven’t found a better case that provides the 360 swivel as well as the shock absorbent protection. I don’t even shop around. I will say the outer material is different. On my past cases, the outer part was made of cushioned leather. It’s now a softer material, but very cushioned and protective. The inner tray is now flexible which is fine...the past cases had hard trays that eventually cracked. All around, this is a great case!!

    I received a new iPad Pro for Christmas and I needed to find a case for it. I was disappointed that Apple did not make the folio case for the 10.5” iPad, they only make the cover. I was pleased to find this Targa case which is very close to the folio case that apple makes. It is very stylish and sturdy. It has all of the features I wanted like magnetic close and notches to prop the screen up with. Very pleased with this purchase.

    I really like the look, feel, and quality of this case. The soft touch material it's made from is very nice. The base has slots that keep it in place. I originally purchased a different brand and the bottom of it was flimsy and unsuitable for use on top of a pillow. The Targus case is perfect because the base is very sturdy, perfect for putting on a pillow on your lap, and the slots are deep enough to keep it from moving around.

    I purchased this case when I purchased my iPad so I could have some protection for it. This case does its job exactly as it should. I use my iPad everyday for school and I have no worries of it being damaged with this case on it. The only thing I would change is the apple pen holder. I wish it was on the inside instead of the back of the case, because it is on the back the case does not sit flat when closed. Not a big issue though.
