I want to say good things about this, but its hard. Otterbox generally has really great products. I purchased an Ipad and it went into this case immediately. It hadnt been taken out save for maybe 2x for cleaning the first 6 months of owning, and had been dropped 1x, from a very short distance. (Which is almsot irrelevant since the point of the case was for that purpose). It was never stepped on and nothing heavy was ever placed on top of it. On the removal of the ipad for cleaning i discovered 2 large cracks in my screen that i didnt have any idea how they had gotten there, and hadnt noticed while using. Any time the ipad was transported, the hard cover was placed over it as well. I emailed otterbox 2x and received no answer. $80 case for an ipad less than a year old and it didnt do what it was advertised to do.
