    Shows promise… except it doesn’t quite fit and the magnetic catch doesn’t work :(, March 16, 2012

    This review is from: Targus Versavu for the New iPad (3rd Gen), Wi-Fi / 4G  Model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB THZ156US (Black) (Personal Computers)

    The case arrived last night, and the iPad 3rd gen about an hour ago. I loved the iPad 2 case, so I was thrilled to find that Targus were making a version for the 3rd gen. VI bought an iPad 2 and the Versavu 360 on the day the iPad 2 was released, and didn’t have any problems, so I had no problem doing the same thing again. I considered keeping the iPad 2 case, but since the devices are slightly different in size, I figured it may not fit the 3, and the new case also included some features I wanted:

    – stylus holder (mine was clipped to the ‘spine’ of the old case, and kept getting dislodged
    – magnetic cover
    – it has 3 notches instead of 2 upon which to rest the iPad at an angle. I frequently found the angles offered by the previous version to be slightly too high or too low, and a ‘between’ setting would have been perfect. The notches are also more angular – I frequently propped the iPad up at an angle, only to have it slide out of the notch a few seconds later because the edges of the notch were fairly soft and rounded.

    The interior feels about the same as the last one, although it doesn’t look nearly as nice – it was previously a blue/turquoise velvety material. The material may be the same, but it’s now gray, and has an odd look – as if the fibers coming off the dark gray background have been lightened by wear – it actually looks like it would be abrasive to the touch. I noticed this on the Targus site before ordering, and hoped it would look better in person, but alas no. At least it feels as smooth as the previous one, so it will do the same job of not scuffing up the screen.

    The first thing I did, before I even plugged the iPad in to sync, was to put it in the case. You can imagine the eyebrow-furrowing that went on when I realized that it doesn’t snap right in, as the iPad 2 used to. It actually seemed a little small – I had to apply some force to get the lip of the black plastic backing to clip over the edge of the iPad and hold it in place. Oh well, I thought, it’s not as though I remove it very often. So, I plugged it in to sync, went about other tasks, then noticed some minutes later that it had silently extricated itself from the case. Further attempts to remove and re-fit it yielded the same results – it won’t stay in.

    I trundled back to the Amazon site to see if anyone had mentioned this in a review – nobody else had, thus far, however all the reviews mentioned that the magnetic catch doesn’t lock the screen. I tried it, just for giggles, and sure enough, it didn’t work.

    The good news is that Targus appear to be aware of these problems and are working on a solution. I contacted their support team via live chat from their website, and they confirmed that both were known issues, and that I could either return it, or wait, and I’d be contacted by email when they fix it (since I provided my email address when contacting support – I don’t think they’ll automatically contact all customers who bought one). I opted for the latter, within the confines of the 30 day return period. Hopefully it’ll all be sorted out within the month…

    [UPDATED March 16th] A friend with the same iPad 2 case also got an iPad 3 today, and brought in both iPads (I already sold mine before the 3 arrived, so I wasn’t able to try the iPad 2 case with the 3). We tried her iPad 3 in the case for the iPad 2, and it was identical to the iPad 3 case – almost fits, but not quite. As another reviewer noted, however, the iPad 2 fits perfectly in the iPad 3 case – the magnet feature is a bit hit-or-miss, but I did actually see it work, which hasn’t been the case with the 3. Given that lots of other reviewers are mentioning that it does fit properly, I wonder if Targus shipped a batch with the plastic fitment sized for the iPad 2, rather than the iPad 3, and I just happen to be amongst the unlucky bunch of recipients.

    [UPDATED March 19th] Targus contacted me this morning to offer me a refund, an alternate model, or if I want to wait 6-8 weeks, a replacement Versavu which will actually fit (my words, not theirs!). I opted for the latter, and don’t even have to return this case when the new one arrives! Thus far, their customer service has proven excellent (I got connected to a live chat on their website fairly quickly on day the iPad was released – sounds like some others were not so lucky). I’ve bumped the rating to 3 stars, as the case is still usable – with care, as the iPad can still “pop out” – and their offer to replace the case without requiring me to go through the hassle of returning the one I have is very generous. I haven’t had any problems with battery life due to the cover turning the iPad on by mistake – the first thing I did when I read another review mentioning this problem was to disable the magnetic on/off feature in the iPad’s settings (Settings > General > iPad Cover Lock/Unlock. Hopefully the replacement…

    *UPDATE* (05-03-2012) – Love the case but one important feature does not work… =<, March 17, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I love this case, I have been waiting weeks for this case to come out. The two tone colors caught my eye right away and I thought that it would be a perfect match with my new ipad 3. I received the case today and after weeks of anticipation and excitement, I was sadly disappointed. Not because the case didn’t meet my expectations, it did. But one of the most valued features that a case has to offer did not work. The magnetic on/off feature that turns on the iPad when the case is open and vica versa. I thought it was the ipad at first, so I looked through the settings and everything seemed to be on. I decided to place my iPad 2 in this case and the on/off feature worked perfectly fine with the iPad 2. So to confirm my suspicion, I placed the new iPad 3 into the case that I use for my iPad 2 and the iPad 3 worked perfectly fine with the older iPad 2 case. I do not know what it is, maybe its the thickness but this was definitely a disappointment.


    *UPDATE* (05-03-2012)

    As promised Targus kept their word and today as I walked to my front door, I see a package laying near the door sealed with Targus branded tape. The replacement case is perfect, everything works and I could not be more happy from the prompt service and commitment that the Targus brand has for their customers on a personal level. This is why I am giving them 5 stars, because of their loyalty I will be a returning customer for their future products, Apple and all. Thank you Targus =>

    Stay Away Does Not Work, March 16, 2012
    Christopher E. Bosworth (Miami, Florida United States) –

    This review is from: Targus Versavu for the New iPad (3rd Gen), Wi-Fi / 4G  Model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB THZ156US (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I was very excited to purchase this alongside my new Ipad. Unfortunately, as noted in the other reviews, the magnets are incorrectly placed and therefore don’t activate the sleep function. Incredible. There must have been a point where they realized this was the case. They shipped anyway. Now I have to waste my time going back to the store to return it.
