    I really like it better than the one for the first iPad, March 19, 2012

    I just got a new iPad (3rd Gen) to replace my original iPad and I wanted a very protective case for it. I had an OtterBox Defender case on my original iPad and loved it. My original iPad still looked groundbreaking new thanks to the OtterBox (and a screen bodyguard) and I wanted the same protection for my new one. I read the reviews of the OtterBox Defender case for the iPad 2 and wasn’t too optimistic. It seemed to be hit or miss whether you got a excellent one or one that would fall apart on you. I’m pleased to say that either they improved the quality in the new one or I just got lucky.

    When I first opened it, I was a bit confused as to how to get it apart so I could place it on my iPad. There are picture directions on the box (no written instructions), but they are vague so I had to work a bit get it taken apart. The silicone part is more firm (not as pliable or flexible) than the one for the original iPad and I reckon I prefer it. The hard case snaps together at a few points where the original one just slid together. It feels more steady and protective. I also like the built-in screen bodyguard rather than relying on having a stick-on screen bodyguard (those are a pain to place on and I always end up with a small speck of something stuck under the bodyguard).

    Once I got it all place together, I really like the feel of it; it’s pretty solid. The cover for this case snaps on more securely than the original one did so I like that as well. The cover would pop off my original iPad way too easily.

    Another thing I like on the new one is the cover for the dock connector. On the original one, there was a piece that would really slide off (as in a completely separate piece that you then had to keep track of) that revealed enough of the back and bottom of the iPad so you could place it in a dock if you wanted to. I don’t use an iPad dock, so wasn’t of any use to me and just irritated me that I had to keep track of this extra piece. After using the case for a while, that piece didn’t stay place nearly as securely as when it was new, so I had to be precise how I held my iPad while caring it so I didn’t accidentally grab just that piece and have it slide out and drop my iPad on the ground.

    The only complaint, and that’s pushing it a bit, is that the silicone covering the home button is a bit stiff so pressing the home button, or double-clicking it, is a small bit tougher. By no earnings is it a deal breaker and I really reckon it will come undone up with a small bit of use (obviously I haven’t used it much since I just got it a couple days ago).

    By and large, I’m very pleased with my buy (though I bought it from Best Buy, not Amazon) and would recommend this case t any person that wants full protection (not water-proof) for their new iPad.

    Better than the case for the iPad 2 because of some improvements!, April 9, 2012

    I ordered one of these suitcases when I first ordered my New iPad but I had to wait for over 3 weeks to hear it. I have to tell you I was nervous holding the iPad without a case. I have large, dry and calloused hands and to hold an iPad without a silicone case for me is like trying to hold a slippery sliver of ice. I was so worried I was going to drop it and the iPad is designed like a piece of art and I didn’t want to scratch or hurt it.

    This new case has numerous improvements and they are noticeable because we own an iPad 2 and the older stylishness Otterbox Defender case. The improvements in my opinion are:
    * The lid of the new case has four robust hard plastic corners that firmly lock around and onto the corners of the Defender case itself. This provides better protection from dropping the iPad on a fragile corner and the lid is snapped onto the case more securely than the last model.
    * The lid contains two magnets so that when you snap it onto the case for carrying it puts the iPad into sleep mode and when you remove the lid the iPad is instantly turned on. The ancient case did not have this feature.
    * The new case has a built in screen bodyguard and the original had a separate screen bodyguard. The new screen bodyguard has a pixilation effect when compared to using the New iPad retina spectacle without a screen cover. Without the cover the picture is unquestionably perfect and with the cover you can see the micro granulation of the plastic material. It is ever so slight but it is there and this aspect of the screen bodyguard needs improvement. I like the fact that the screen bodyguard is built in but I despise bringing up the rear spectacle quality because the incorrect material was selected for the bodyguard. Let’s face it, the retina spectacle is the main reason why many of us bought the new iPad.
    * On the new case the flaps that cover the docking area, the earphone jack and the switch for the Silent/Screen rotation lock, snap into place tightly and do not at random come open. The silicon seems thicker and tighter on the case and the areas where these flaps fit are much better designed and close tighter.
    * The edge of the silicon on the top bezel of the case that goes around the iPad spectacle has a nice wide extrusion that fits into a larger channel seal area in the hard plastic case than the last model defender case. The seal and fit is much tighter than the last model case and it simply feels more secure. The silicon was really a small harder to get off to install the iPad as it is so tight fitting.
    * The silicon by and large feels thicker and fits tighter than the last Defender model and it just feels better made.
    * The large flip up flap that was on the back of the case for the iPad 2 docking area is no longer there and I like that they removed it. It was useless and was hard to seal and keep in place some era.

    Things that are the same and are still excellent:
    * The removable lid still has the flip up means inside that allows you to install the iPad into it in a typing angle or in a higher tilt for video viewing. I do like the larger snap on corners again as the tilt holding area is larger and seems safer in the video viewing position. For video viewing you can stand the iPad up into the portrait or landscape modes.
    * The lid still snaps onto the bottom of the case for storage while using the iPad.
    * The case has two hard plastic polycarbonate shells that firmly snap together to enclose the iPad. The bottom case bombard is lined with memory foam to cradle the iPad and provide additional shock absorption.

    Over all the consequence of the New iPad in the case does increase. My iPad 64 GIG is specified to weigh in at 652 grams and when installed in the case with cover the consequence goes to 1172 grams or 2 pounds and 9 ¼ ounces. I know it is heavier by nearly 80% but I can tell you it feels 10 era more protected than a bare iPad. The silicon cover has an alligator stylishness tread pattern on the long sides of the iPad case and I can securely hold it in one hand where without the case I was worried to drop the slick surfaced iPad.

    Two negative observations about the spectacle cover built in as part of the case top bombard.
    * I cleaned my iPad with a very slightly damp microfiber cloth and made sure that the case screen was sterile. I still got a few minor pieces of dust under the screen once I closed it. I don’t like that but I have to tell you that is was cleaner than when I installed the stick on screen cover on the last model of the Defender case. You just can’t get rid of all the dust no matter what you do. This is not Otterbox’s fault but just a statement about screen protectors in general and their installation.
    * The screen bodyguard that is built into the top of the polycarbonate case needs to be improved. I may leave mine on for a while but I am likely to take the screen bodyguard out of the case as I do not like the degradation…

    Fantastic Case For The New Ipad, March 26, 2012

    Verified Buy(What’s this?)
    Received this case and installed it pretty simple watching the video from Otterbox’s website. First thing I cleaned the Ipad screen and the screen bodyguard and looked at them both in the light making sure there was no prints or lint on either. I just used windex and a paper rub down. Then assembled it. The screen looks gorgeous. Games, video’s and everything else looks wonderful. I can’t tell I’m even looking thru a screen bodyguard. I can’t be with you why so many other reviewers are unimpressed with the screen bodyguard. By and large protection seems pretty excellent. My nine year ancient son can grab this anytime he wants now without me worrying. I would recommend this case highly to anyone looking to buy protection for their new Ipad. Also try maintenance this in your cart with Amazon as the seller and watch for a price drop. Amazon last week for a small time dropped the price to $30.99 which is when I bought it. If they did it before maybe they will do it again.
