Premium TPU Case for iPad® 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 - White
(the New iPad)
|iPad Air™||iPad Air 2|
The TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) case is a nice compromise between the flexibility of the soft silicone skin, and the stronger form factor of the harder crystal and polycarbonate cases. The TPU material is highly resistant to scratches and fingermarks. It is pliable, yet resistant to tearing, making it good-looking and long-lasting alternative to other materials.
While the case has cutouts for the connectors and camera lens, the controls are covered, preventing dust and other material from entering the iPad 2, New iPad (aka iPad 3), or iPad With Retina Display (aka iPad 4), yet still allowing the controls to be easily manipulated through special button molds in the case. Although the case covers the cellular antenna area, it will not interfere with cellular reception.

A very nice simple quality case.
Great all around protection.
I (expectedly) had to modify my cases to fit the smart cover hinge.
Surprisingly, only the hinge area needed to be trimmed away.
The lip around the other 3 edges does NOT interfere with the cover or the "smarts" :)
The modification for the smart cover also help mitigate the issues with the lip around the front cause the freshly applied (ipad-1) screen shield.
PROS: Awesome case, cutouts are oversized so no alignment issues.
White is actually clear :)
Provides great all around protection :)
CONS: A little difficult to put the case on the iPad, but once on feels very solid so that is only a 1/2 con.
The very thight fit means you must be very careful if you have a screen protector as the lip around the front will likely cause the screen shield to peal up. I solved this with the modification I made to fit the smart cover.
PROS: Good value.
CONS: no quite right for iPad 3
PROS: This case gives some grip to the slippery iPad for the best price you will find around. It fits the iPad snuggly and the clear material allows the iPad to be shown.
CONS: No spot for the smart cover to attach. A small problem for a great case and amazing price!
PROS: Excellent protection
Fits the iPad 2 and leaves ports accessible
Material feels durable and has grip to it
Price is very reasonable
CONS: Hard to get on
Sometimes bottom flap comes off (but case is still secure)
Makes the iPad somewhat bulky and ugly
Another great product from Monoprice.
Ease of use
Protects back of iPad 2
It can be a little difficult to install it (pulling it over the corners) on my iPad2, but once it's on it's a nice snug fit and I would never worry about it falling off. It's a great material (TPU) that doesn't get stuck when rubbing against fabrics (like in a bag) or allow lint to stick to it. It is comfortable to hold and doesn't noticeably add to the heft or size of the iPad. It also allows perfect access to all of the ports and buttons. The only thing I'd change if I could is offering some nice colors that wouldn't yellow or fade over time.
PROS: price, quality
CONS: none, but vie only had it a day. only thing i might be worried about is it changing color from clear to yellow or something like that. but nothing out of the box wrong with it.
PROS: Excellent fit. Good quality. Works as advertised.
CONS: The only real con is that it has to be modified for a smart cover. A bit hard to install due to tight fit, just be patient.
