    Surprisingly good

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    Not perfect, but very good. It fits the new iPad Mini Retina well, shuts off the screen when the cover is closed, protects the device well and still leaves the iPad Mini small and light. There are only two small nits to pick. With the cover folded to hold the device up in landscape position, there is not quite enough friction to hold up to aggressive tying on the virtual keyboard. I may add a small piece of friction tape or Velcro. The other minor complaint is price. On the other hand, It is genuine leather. Maybe I'm just cheap : ) I'm still happy to have it, though.

    I don't understand the other reviewer's complaint about favoring left-handers. When the iPad Mini is installed in the case correctly, the home button is on the right side. OK with me (a right- hander).

    Great, but...

    • Written by from Årslev

    It's really nice imo, but there's one thing about it that annoys me to the bone... The hole to the mini jack plug is simply not wide enough. I have two different, but absolutely standard headphones and none of them can be plugged for proper connection. The result is wooly or monophonic sound if any sound at all and/or a plug dropping out occasionally, just because I'm not holding the iPad completely still.

    I'm amazed that Apple approved this.

    Excellent case that fits old and new iPad Mini's

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I bought this case and it arrived before my new iPad mini so I put my old one it the case and it first perfectly. It feels excellent in the hands and feels very durable, as you could possibly drop it and not damage it (which I have no proof of).

    I bought black and it look excellent. The main thing is this a) feels great in my hands b) fits the old mini perfect (guess there most not be much size change due to the new Retina screen).

    I don't give it 5 stars due to price. I have bought a lot of Apple products in the last 5 years. While they make excellent products, the prices for their accessories are always more than they are worth in my opinion. You can argue about their products but cases, cables etc - this is hard to argue.
