Otterbox For Ipad 2 -How To Protect Your Ipad From Almost Anything
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you find yourself in places that will almost certainly damage your Ipad? You know that that expensive tablet will be destroyed unless it is protected with more than a cloth or leather cover over the screen or even an average portfolio wrapped around the whole Ipad. You need extreme protection!

There is only one Ipad case to consider -- The Otterbox for Ipad 2.

How does this case protect the Ipad so well?

The case is not in one or two pieces, but four separate pieces, each designed to mitigate damage to the Ipad.

The back is designed of three pieces. The first is the frame the fits around the ipad screen. This is snapped into the polycarbonate back. This back gives a hard shell layer of protection to the Ipad. Once the hardshell is snapped in place the Otterbox for Ipad 2 case's sliicone skin is placed over the back. The silicone skin provides shock resistance along with the memory foam included in the hard shell.

The front cover is a hard plastic and clips in place around the silicone skin.

The Otterbox for Ipad 2 includes a two-level viewing stand that is on the inside of the front cover. It allows for a 20 degree typing angle and a 60 degree viewing angle. Because the solid plastic stand provides a very stable holder for the Ipad.

Cons to the Oterbox for Ipad 2

With any case one can find specific problems or just desires for better design or more features. The latter is true of the Otterbox.

While some concern has been mentioned that the case is not as durable or protective as the one for the original Ipad, I do not personally see this to be a problem.

Also, Otterbox does mention that while it is designed for the Ipad 2 and allows access to all the functions of the Ipad, it is not compatible with the optional docking station.

The biggest cons to the Otterbox for Ipad 2 is the price - listed at $90, and the weight - 2 lb 5 oz with the Ipad 2 included.

You can not expect a quality product at generic prices. For a company to make a similar ipad 2 case at a lower price, they would have to cut the quality of the materials used or the amount of the material used. This would just create an inferior product which could cause disaster to you Ipad 2.

Secondly, the weight of the Otterbox for Ipad 2 is needed for the protection of the Ipad case. Sure you can get a Smart Cover that weighs only ounces, but it provides no protection to the Ipad only the screen. You can also get lightweight pu Leather case, but don't expect it to protect your Ipad from a serious fall or blow to the screen.

If you need serious protection for your Ipad 2, The Otterbox for Ipad 2 is the one you need.
