    Cool

    When handling while case is shut, feels really firm and compact ... Doesn't seem like one is transporting a tablet ... When open, it adds some bulk, but good bulk, meaning the folds provide a "handle" ( I didn't like holding super thin naked iPad because I'm clumsy and could easily slip out of grip) ... Currently typing this review using the multiple angle feature on my lap, which I have to say is extremely convenient ... Case looks cool and professional when closed ... Inside of case flap is extremely smooth and soft, like having a cloud resting between screen and cover .... It was a head scratcher between this and otter box defender, but defender is super bulky ( this fits in glove compartment ) ... I'm glad I chose this folio case ... Defineately worth it ... F

    Difficult to remove from case.

    I bought this case for my iPad mini 4. It provides some protection and I am able to rotate my device 360 degrees which is useful in some situations. What I don't like is that it is difficult to remove from its hard rubber mount on the inside. Mind you, this is a case for all iPad mini models. The only reason I chose this product was because you can rotate the iPad 360 degrees. If you're the type of person who regularly removes the device for cleaning and other stuff, then this product is not for you. And also, be extra careful when putting your device inside the mount, especially if your device has a screen protector, for there is a good chance of damaging the screen protector upon installation because of the very tight fit. So, a good case, but don't recommend it. My advise would be to buy a case that caters to one device, not multiple devices.

    Good Fit for ipad mini4

    This is our first ipad mini and thus our first cover. The cover has a flap that helps to make a complete wrap of the mini. We were looking for something that would allow the mini to stand up and not have to be held. This one has slots for the mini to stand in and also has a swivel option where you can have it in portrait or landscape mode. We have to fold the flap back under the cover to keep it out of the line of site for the screen. Not a big deal for us, but not sure if that will make it wear out faster or anything. We like to run it to portrait mode to facetime, but the angle of the screen in that mode isn't a straight-up enough angle and we end up having to hold it for that anyway. It does work great for reading and viewing. The cover does seem to do a good job of securely holding the mini. Now, we haven't tried to throw it on the floor or anything to test the protection it offers.

    I have a 2 & 3 yr old that occasionally get a hold of my iPad and after making the mistake of not having a protective cover on it and having my little one grab and fall with it (shattering screen to pieces, kiddo okay) decided to try this. First off easy to install iPad, however if you have a screen protector on your iPad, may not fit well. It caused mine to come up from the edges, which I ended up having to take off completely. The good thing is that it is raised a bit from the screen so if it falls, the screen doesn't touch the ground if flat surface. They have dropped my iPad since installing cover and it protects it very well. Love that it has a built in stand so that it can be propped up to watch something while doing other things. Easy to clean. Loved it so much got another open in (Blue) for my other iPad. Would reccomend!

    A bit bulky but very solid and dependable

    This cover is a bit heavy and bulky but I recommend it and would buy another if needed. The cover stays closed and the iPad mini has never fallen out of the case. I've dropped it from multiple elevations (probably all five feet or less) and the iPad mini has always survived intact. This case isn't the best for propping on your chest to read at night, especially if you want it to sit in portrait mode. Also the flap gets in the way when in the stand mode as shown in the attached photo. Other than those two minor complaints, it's well designed and built. I highly recommend it.

    Best sturdy and versatile iPad cover ever!

    I LOVE this iPad case because, as a student, I need to be able to prop up my iPad Mini to use it in portrait mode more than landscape mode. This case does both with ease. With the grip on the inside of the case, my iPad never slips or falls down and when I need to snap a pic of my Educator's board I can do so in a sec regardless of the iPad's position in the case. It takes a beating in my backpack yet looks flawless at all times. It's folding nature makes it look and feel sturdy like a book and I'm never worried about accidentally dropping my iPad. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me is due to its limited color availability; otherwise it's a 5 start case. I will buy this case again as I upgrade iPads. Thank you Targus and Thank you Best Buy for carrying this. (P.S. Please make it in Pink!)

    Good Protection and Versatile but Heavy

    I like this case for my iPad 2 very much and it shines in several ways. It provides excellent protection for my iPad and is very handy in the way you can twist the iPad around to stand it up either vertically or horizontally. I find myself using in one of those configurations quite a bit. The only thing I don't particularly like about it is that when I'm just sitting and reading my iPad it gets rather heavy to hold compared to the Apple Smart Cover I had previously. It's a little awkward in that you have to twist the flap around so you don't have a nice smooth surface to hold. Another minor irritation is that it doesn't shut off when I close the cover so I have to wait until the shutdown time expires or remember to shut it down manually.

    This case replaced a Speck case for my iPad mini 2. I like the less rigid, more forgiving material that encases the tablet. While my old Speck case did a commendable job of preventing damage to the tablet during drops, the case itself didn't fare as well. The hard shell of plastic cracked, split, or otherwise completely broke off because of drops. This Targus case has a somewhat more malleable rubber material which has a better survivability factor. Also, this case allows the tablet to rotate 360 degrees for vertical or horizontal viewing. In addition, it has a thicker, more padded over wrap which completely surrounds the entire case. While this does add a bit of extra weight and thickness, I feel it's acceptable for the extra protection it provides.

    Clasp Breaks

    I bought this case for my son’s iPad mini. After about 4 months the plastic clasp that holds the iPad to the surrounding case broke. The plastic connector is round and let’s you set the iPad down and spin it to sit in portrait mode. That plastic piece broke and now the iPad isn’t connected to the case rendering the case useless. My son would pick up the iPad and let the case hang, but he didn’t roughhouse with it. I bought a second identical case thinking the first had to be defective. Same thing. It lasted about 3 months. Extremely poor design. They need to remove that swivel and firmly attach the iPad.

    Generally Good iPad Case

    Good general use iPad case. Sturdy and it covers the edges of the iPad well for added drop protection. Button are not covered, which is something I liked in my previous case but that did make the buttons hard to push. My main complaint with this case is the flap that wraps around to hold it closed. I like the protection that the flap offers, but when in use the flap gets in the way. The case does not sit flat in your lap or on a table because of the way that the flap is positioned when the case is folded open. The flap also sticks up in the way when you use the case to have the iPad propped upright.

    When i searched for the appropriate iPad that i need, this suggestive case keeps popping up, so i got curious and investigate what this case is all about and what it can do. i wanted to look for other alternative case, but this particular red-colored case keeps popping up alongside with the iPad that i have decided to purchase. So i have no choice but to buy it also because i would need a case to protect my iPad when it arrives. When i received the package, i say Wow! this case makes sense. Besides its bright red color, it is durable and of good material, rotates 360 degrees, the manufacturer really understands what an iPad user really needs. Great product!

    I bought this case for my wife. Basically all she cared about was a nice color :-) and ease of use. Bingo, this has all that and more. It protects the mini with a magnetic cover which flips closed easily and stays closed, although opening it is also easy. It won't flip open on it's own, no worries. The mini, once snapped into the rubber support frame, swivels, so the case will also serve as a prop to support it standing up on a desk, for example. This case was a home run for her. If we buy another mini, this will be the case we buy.

    I bought get this after my old case started to fall apart, as it was a little flimsy. This case fits my iPad Mini 4 perfectly, allowing access to all of the ports and buttons. It is very sturdy. The material is very stylish and durable feeling, unlike my last case which had a cheap plastic feel to it. The case feels like it is made of suade leather (it's not leather, but feels premium like it does). The magnetic clasp is strong. The price was a little high for my liking, but I wanted something that would last through my constant harsh use, I'm glad I purchased this case. I have had it for about a month now, and it has done its job well.

    I have been using the VersaVu case for my iPad mini 2 for about a month now. I have it in blue, which distinguishes it from everybody else's black ones! I am very happy with the ease of changing from a portrait to a landscape viewing format. The magnetic closure, which also puts the mini in an auto-sleep mode, works very well and is secure. The case works as a stand pretty well, but doesn't really lock into place and sometimes slips. The case was reasonably priced for all the features it has. There are definitely more sturdy cases out there--for about 3 times the price!--but this one is sturdy enough for me.

    I'm a fan of Targus products, but I feel they got it wrong with this iPad case. Let me start by saying the color was great. The case protected the iPad completely. And that's all I have to say good about it. The case was too bulky. It was a little slippery and not as easy to grip as I imagined and it opened from the back of the iPad. That's correct where you see the opening in the picture above the hole at the top is for the back camera so when you open this device you literally have to turn the iPad over to work with it. Not good. I saw the UAG iPad case, purchased it and returned this case immediately.

    As I was purchasing my iPad mini 4 this cover popped up at checkout. I usually read up on this kind of thing but purchased it due to the red color. Impulse buying paid off! I love the color, thickness of of the cover. I like the capability to rotate the iPad. The cover fits snugly around my iPad mini. I feel it's safe if it falls on the floor. When you close it it turns the mini off. The only problem with this one is the flap, when you fold it over to watch a show the flap can actually hinder your view. I've been resting the mini on the flap just to see the whole screen. Overall great cover, sturdy, colorful.

    I bought this case in the immediacy of buying my iPad mini. My overall rate of the case is its doable, as far as protection is involved. After inserting the iPad into place, the cover feels quite good in the hand. The texture gives a comforting and secure feel that you cannot miss. Unfortunately, the rubber inside lining that covers the iPad, leaves an unpleasant smug marking on the screen. It almost deserves to be cleaned after every the pad is closed up.

    NOT slim!!

    Loved the idea of the multitude of viewing and stand options this case offers. That being said "Slim" is in the products name and there couldn't be anything further from the truth. The bulk of this case negates the design of the iPad itself making it as large as and heavier than a hardcover book. If you're planning on only using the device on a table top it would work well, I use the device in my hands and it's just too heavy to hold for any length of time. I would feel safe traveling with the iPad in this case, even just tossing it into a backpack, it seems quite sturdy and protective.

    Wish it is sturdier. Kids love the case as they can position their ipad minis however they want. I love it as it gives the protection I look for in a case. However, this is the 3rd time (2 cases each time) that I purchased this. It always break where the swivel is. The swivel is held by 3 thin plastic eaves. This could be improved on, unless this is by design to get more consumers to buy when it breaks. I would recommend to a friend but with extreme caution/warning to come with it.

    This case works well so far, allowing me to use the iPad Mini hands-free in both landscape and portrait formats. I think it will protect the device well. It is obviously bulkier than the Apple cover, but also both more protective and more versatile (I really like being able to use it as a stand while using the iPad in a portrait orientation). There are a couple of features I would like to have that aren't present: 1) a handle of some sort to allow me to hold it more securely, and 2) a couple of card slots where I could keep a credit card and a business card.
