Le système pour retenir le ipad pour une utilisation à 45degrés est très mal fait. Sortir le ipad par le bas pour le mettre debout est mal fait et c'est un problème à chaque fois.
Si c'était à refaire je chercherais une meilleure solution.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
On first glance it is exactly as advertised and looks good... then you stick an iPad in.
First off, I put in a brand new iPad 3 (I know it's the "New iPad" but I'm going to call the iPad 3 anyway, so there...) It's a little tight to fit in the corner brackets, but not overly. Overall a good fit... But isn't that what you want with an iPad case? Sure, but you'll notice that this particular case can also be used as a stand. In fact that is one of its key selling points. Unfortunately, in order to use the stand feature, one has to unhook the two inner corners in order for the iPad and case to be put into the stand configuration. Remember what I said earlier? This tight fit makes putting it into stand mode a major pain in the butt and the fact that in stand mode there are only two corners attaching it to the case means there is a real possibility of the iPad falling out of the case completely should you pick it up wrong or fumble it while in stand mode.
But Wait! There's more!
How about the nice elastic strap to keep it closed. Works as it should, but they attached it to the wrong side. By that I mean the elastic strap is only usable when the case is closed meaning you can't use it to hold it in position if you fold the cover behind the iPad during use. That means you've got to have it open like a book or flopping lose whenever you're using your iPad. You could still use the elastic to hold it secure when folded over, but it kind of obstructs that nice retina display. Super!
But surely that's not enough to warrant a two star rating?
Maybe, but I've yet to mention that this is suppose to be a smart case with the magnetic shut off feature. You probably already knew that from the product description, but what they don't tell you is that it doesn't work. With the credit card pockets, notebook, and screen cleaner on the inside of the cover it won't close tight enough to the iPad top (even with elastic) to trigger the magnetic shutoff feature on the iPad. I had to pinch the edge of the cover over the top of the magnet just to get it to make contact with the iPad top. Pressure must be maintained to keep it in contact with the iPad. Even that isn't enough to activate the magnetic shutoff though since the natural alignment of the case places the magnet about a quarter of an inch to far toward the edge to catch the right spot on the iPad.
I bought this specific case for 5 reasons.
1.)Smart magnetic cover (Bust!)
2.)Built in stand ability (PITA Bust!)
3.)Stylus Holder (this works fine)
4.)Elastic strap that would work similar to my kindle cover (Bust! Only usable to keep closed and won't close tight enough to make the magnets reach the iPad)
5.)Card/Storage pockets (works fine too, but only makes the other problems more obvious.)
Anyway... 2 out of 5. There you go. Save your money.
The other features, (note pad, credit cards holder,) does not make up for the overall functional expectation of this product. Will look at other products. And to think, I was going to wait 4 weeks for the black case.
Don't waste your time or money.
First: I worry that if I were to put anything in the nifty internal pockets, I could wind up marking or otherwise damaging the screen. There should have been some indentation and/or a raised screen protector.
Second: the magnets do not, in fact, work to put the iPad to sleep or wake it.
Third: if there is a way to use the case with the iPad propped up that does not, at the same time, pose a significant risk of having the iPad slide out, I haven't figured out what it is.
The case is not altogether useless: I interpolated a thin, soft cloth between the pockets and the iPad screen; I don't count on the case to wake or sleep the iPad, and I don't use the case when I need to be able to work on a propped up iPad. But I will have to get another, safer, more functional case. (And really: who wants or needs TWO cases, a good one and an also-ran?)
The cover is well made from a cloth material that is both attractive and durable. The inside has a soft feel to it. I like the looks of the case even though it is somewhat thicker than several other covers on the market. That could be a problem for some.
The magnetic turn off feature in the cover flap works most of the time, but when the folio is loaded up with a paper note pad, some business cards and a stylus--not so well.
I don't particularly like the way the stand feature functions. The iPad must be unfastened from the bottom mounting corners to make it work. However, when the cover is in that position it is just the ticket for using my Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad2.
The little CleanVu cleaning pad included with the cover is cute and works OK, but it is a gimmick that I wouldn't miss if it were not there. There is a cloth loop in the crease of the cover for a stylus and that is welcome, but the loop is so large a stylus without a clip will slip right out.
The Targus cover/folio does a good job of protecting my iPad from bumps and scrapes even though some of the edges are exposed. I will be using it while traveling and feel confident that my iPad will be secure. However, I have some reservations about this folio that require me to rate it with only three stars.
