The original Snugg iPad cover with flip stand was a huge success, so it comes as no surprise to find the Snugg Mark II for the Apple iPad 2nd generation.
This is a pretty chunky and solid looking folio style cover with flip stand. Made of genuine leather with a soft nubuck interior that will protect the tablet’s display, this is tough, rugged and good quality at a price you can afford.
The tablet is held in place with Velcro and of course you get access to all controls, including a neat cut out for the camera on the tablet’s back. Inside is a wide elasticated hand-strap which could be great when walking with your tablet. Open up the cover completely and the hand-strap will be a comfortable way to keep a steady hold on your expensive Apple gadget.
This cover probably isn’t going to win any awards. It is not trying to be clever or adventurous. Instead Snugg are sticking with a tried and tested design that buyers love for its tough and practical approach to tablet protection. We give it a thumbs up as the leather is good quality and the overall design will keep anyone that wants a simple yet protective iPad 2 case very happy indeed.
The Targus VuScape (along with the Targus 360) has been one of very few iPad 2 Cases released in time for the initial iPad 2 introduction. A more simple design, but still offering a unique look to your tablet, this is functional and good looking.
With its robust dark exterior, contrasted beautifully by a sky blue interior it offers great protection from knocks and bumps. The microfiber lining keeps your display scratch free of course. You get all the usual cut outs for accessing controls and ports as you would expect with any good quality iPad case.
The design fits well and doesn’t cover the front of the tablet, giving a great stream lined look to the whole thing. This hard sided cover offers three viewing angles to prop up your tablet (all in landscape mode).
For the price you get a lot of protection, but all in a slim light-weight design that complements the clean lines of the Apple tablet itself.
Targus VuScape Ipad 2 Cover Reviews
So soon after the release of the Targus VuScape iPad 2 cover with stand it might be a surprise to find so many customer reviews already written. You can view them all by clicking the image at the top of the page. The overall impression from customers is extremely positive, with an average 4 our of 5 stars. The key points mentioned so far include:
slim, lightweight design,
good hard shell protection for the whole device
worth the price
great access to controls, camera and ports
The look is fabulous with the contrast stitch detail, but this is not a leather iPad case, so look elsewhere if you are after genuine leather. This means that like most synthetic products it can have a plastic odour when first opened. Don’t worry though that is gone in no time so you can get on with enjoying your latest Apple gadget.
The Targus 360 Degrees Case offers a unique viewing experience for iPad 2 owners. Rotate your tablet computer through a full 360 degrees allowing simple variation between viewing in portrait and landscape mode.
With its unique (and patent pending) swivel action mechanism that frames the Apple logo you have a unique way to move from portrait to landscape view whilst leaving your tablet safely protected inside its sturdy case with built in stand.
The black exterior is smart and solid enough that you get some good protection for the iPad. There are all the usual cut outs so that everything you need is accessible, and of course, since this is a Targus case those cut outs fit perfectly.
The pale blue microfiber lining offers good scratch protection for the display, but also adds a little bit of contrast and style to the whole thing, as to does the contrast stitching on the outside. This may be a super practical case with stand but it is also a rather good looking cover in its own right too.
Targus 360 iPad 2 Case Reviews
Well so far of course there aren’t hundreds of reviews of any iPad 2 cases yet. But the Targus 360 case had a great start, with a 4.5 average star rating out of a possible 5.
Overall the comments focus on the following areas:
rich, elegant look
great smooth swivel action
practical with great protection
high quality finish
On the down side there is an elastic strap to hold it closed. Some customers are concerned about the durability of such a closure. We can understand that you might wonder how stretchy the elastic might remain. But check out the best sellling Kindle covers with their elastic straps that last for years and we don’t think this should be a concern. The only other real negative response concerns the smell. As with many electronics accessories this one is supplied with quite a strong plast
This is an ingenious cover that is likely to become one of the more popular choices for those needing a hard shell cover with built in stand, and ultimate flexibility.
The fact that Targus managed to get the 360 case on store shelves in time for the launch of the 2nd generation iPad has probably helped too. Whilst many accessories are released for pre-order only when the iPad 2 arrives, the Targus 360 is shipping immediately.
Beautiful, practical and great quality, the Targus 260 Degrees iPad 2 case is most definitely a winner as far as great iPad cases are concerned.
