I purchased this case for my husband when he bought his iPad mini. He did not care for it so he passed it back to me to use on mine. I can see why he wasn't thrilled with the purchase. This isn't a terrible case, by any means. I like the way it snaps the iPad into place and it doesn't cover the screen. However, this is also sort of a disadvantage because it doesn't offer very much protection. I like that it swivels so that I can stand it up while watching a movie or reading a recipe. I use this feature often. However, being that I swivel it back and forth quite a bit, I feel like it isn't going to hold up very long. The swivel on it is plastic and feels like it might give out soon. Also, the fabric is beginning to unravel at the seams. I haven't had the case very long and I do not travel much with it so I am not putting it in and out of a bag or anything so I can't understand why it is wearing so quickly. If you are looking for an average case and you use your iPad minimally, I guess this would be an OK case for you. However, I think I will be shopping for a new one soon.
