I wasn't all that impressed with this case. I was intrigued by the idea of having a case with built-in speakers, but after using it for a month or so, I've gone back to my old case, the AYL Folio iPad case). This one does make a nice stand for watching movies, but so does my other case. My main issue with this one is how much bulk and weight it adds, it's quite noticeable versus the other case. More annoying, the charger cables are inside at the hinge and I could not get them folded away enough for the case to lay flat when shut, you have to use the elastic band to get it fully shut. It's really annoying. So really the only reason to use this is if you intend to use the sound features a LOT. The sound is just so-so. It definitely is better than the iPad, particularly to produce any amount of volume. But it quickly gets tinny, lacks bass, and is very directional (fades at angles quickly). If you want sound that projects any distance at all, you will want to look elsewhere. I compare it to any of a number of small plugin speakers you can get for an iPhone/iPad and the sounds is pretty much the same, without having to carry the bulk and weight of this case. I tend to need to use headphones as usually I am not someplace where I am able to turn the sound up; in situations where I did want sound, I needed much more than it would produce, so for me, this was a fail compared to other options.
