Don't Complain, You Get What You Pay For Jun 16, 2010
By Daniel Ladd
"B.S Computer Engineering"
"I recently put a $9 dent in my wallet.."ouch" to buy what I thought would be the the best Ipad case in the world"
Well if you said something of that sort when purchasing this item, you will be rather upset with the outcome due to your ridiculous standards, although If you are like the rest of the world and can afford to lose some quality for a great price then this is the case for you.
Lets break this down...
1) Case fits Ipad ..nice start!
2) Case protects Ipad
3) Case performs well as stand..(as long as you live a consistent landscape lifestyle you will be happy.)
4) Crazy cheap! I am pretty sure I bought this with money I got from returning the beer cans from my "I can't believe I got an Ipad" party.
1) Cost was cheap, so obviously the materials that go into it are...you guessed it, cheap. Fake leather (I guess the price of raising, killing, skinning, and tanning animals isn't what it used to be), stitching is pulling out already (two days owned, but they never said you can't chew on it in the fine print!!).
2) Cutout for screen is off by a smidge, probably one of those measure once, cut twice deals, just needs to be a bit bigger next time.
3) Pockets? It seems the pockets on the inner cover are for some sort of memory card...can someone tell me where to buy an Ipad with expandable memory so that I can fill these pockets? Although there is a pocket for my credit card which I always seem to need when I am in the app store so good call on that one. Next time give me a stylus and screen wipe pocket.
Final thoughts- Buy it! If you just need a case to keep your Ipad in one piece then this is right for you. If you stand 10 feet from people at all times you may even be able to make them believe your case cost as much as $12.

Good value and does the job May 01, 2010
For starters, this case cost $15 so set your expectations accordingly.
If you have an iPad realize that the screen is like the iPhone and very sensitive to external light from the sun, windows, or light bulbs. Adjusting the angle slightly takes care of the problem, but the iPad surface is metal that is virtually frictionless (i.e. it slides all over the place if you try to prop it up for better viewing). In my opinion you want a case that allows you to use the device while still in the case.
If you are going to use this in an airplane, breakfast table, etc. you need a cover that allows you to adjust the viewing angle. This case allows you to stand the device upright vertically and horizontally. The fit of the case is OK, but not quite snug enough. The edges of the case are a little too big and cover a VERY small part of the screen. All the buttons/charging port are available when in the case.
I didn't notice any strange smells as mentioned by other reviewers.
The case looks nice, but it's the thinnest leather (or faux leather) you have ever seen in your life. However, I didn't spend $50 so I am satisfied.
If you plan to watch a lot of video, this is a good case for the $.
If you are fine spending $50 for a case then buy something that is better quality and fit.

The case is not leather, it obscures the display and light sensor, magnets interfere with compass and iPad can slip out May 03, 2010
By Van Smith
This folio style carrying case obscures a significant portion of the iPad's display around all four edges of the screen (except directly above the primary button). We tried to trim the case material back so that the full display could be properly accessed, but the results were completely unsatisfactory. The case material is not leather; the part covering the iPad's bezel is a semi-rigid, plastic film sandwiched between two, thin outer layers of synthetic fabric that resembles the cheap vinyl found in inexpensive beach toys. Attempting to trim the case back to properly expose the iPad's screen reveals this three-ply synthetic construction in a very unsightly manner. The thin, leather grained, synthetic fabric composes the covering for the entire case.
Additionally, the case blocks the iPad's ambient light sensor located in the center bezel above the iPad's display (the sensor is on top when the primary iPad button is on bottom). Consequently, the iPad's display will be perpetually dim despite external lighting conditions. Cutting a hole in the case to expose the light sensor will result in another unsightly modification.
Despite reviews for this case claiming otherwise, there is no snap to secure the iPad within the case when the folio is open. Consequently, the iPad easily slips out of the case in this condition if care is not exercised. Even when the folio is closed, the iPad will slip out of the case if the snap strap is not secured well, so do not forget to refasten it every time you close the folio. Oddly, the case has a magnetic clasp to hold the folio shut, so the snap strap would have been put to better use holding the iPad in place rather than holding the folio closed.
Speaking of magnets, the case has at least two: one to hold the folio shut and another to hold the stand in the closed position. These magnets interfere with the iPad's digital compass when the iPad is in the case. For instance, our tests show that simply opening and closing the stand will change the direction of the iPad's internal compass.
If these design errors are corrected, the case would be a good, relatively inexpensive, protective solution for the iPad. The adjustable stand works as advertised and the case is padded well and looks pretty good. However, the case material used is not leather, but a cheap, synthetic substitute that almost certainly will not hold up well over time, so even if the case design is corrected it should sell for significantly less than the current price.
As it is now, the case is very disappointing and a waste of money. It is made of cheap synthetic materials -- not leather as is claimed in the numerous Amazon product descriptions for it. Because of its cheap construction, the wholesale cost is probably around $5, so the current Amazon selling prices of around $20 (including shipping) are very high. The case fits the iPad poorly and obscures a significant portion of the display. The iPad's ambient light sensor is completely covered by this case resulting in a perpetually dim display. Case modifications are out of the question due to the cheap, three-ply synthetic construction: mods are very unsightly and will invalidate the buyer's option of seeking a refund. The iPad's internal compass is thrown off by the case's magnets. And perhaps worst, the iPad will easily slip out of the case unless the folio is closed and the strap is snapped securely.
EDIT: I have uploaded photographs showing the synthetic construction of the case.

Bad product - Bad seller. May 17, 2010
By J. Santos
I'm normally a pretty patient person but when I receive the item 17 days after I placed the order I think that's unacceptable. Granted it is USPS' fault but when you go through the seller's reviews it seems as though they have a recurring problem with USPS. And when I emailed them 15 days after placing the order the only response I get is to wait longer. No shipping credit offer to appease the situation much less an apology. Needless to say, if they get your order right then all is good, but if not then good luck dealing with CTCStore's crappy customer service. And I wouldn't normally lump in the product with the seller in the review but this is a CTCStore product. Believe me when I say I'm not the type of customer who typically complains but I just had to speak my mind here. Whew, now that that's out of the way on to the product itself.
Now, the item itself was not what I expected. Its changed now but when I first ordered it the list price for the item was around $60 which lead me to believe that, hey, this could actually be real leather. And getting it for the sales price $15 (plus $5 shipping) is actually a steal! No. It's just a trick to get people to think they're actually getting a good deal. This thing really is worth $15 - if not less. This case is that fake leather plastic material similar to the pants I wore for Halloween when I dressed up as David Lee Roth. Also - F***in Magnets (how do they work?). The magnets mess up the compass, not really a big deal for me but thought I'd mention it. There also isn't a hole for the ambient light sensor. The thing that doesn't make sense to me is that when it's open there isn't anything holding the iPad in. The little button strap only works when the cover is closed.
If you ask me, I'd avoid this case AND the seller. I'm going to be shopping around for a better one and just chalk this up as a loss.

13 positions for about 13 degrees of adjustability May 05, 2010
By Daniel Lemut
This iPad case holds the device for viewing in landscape mode from about 50 - 60 degrees relative to the surface it's sitting on. Moving the stand from one position to the next changes the angle less than one degree, so realistically the average user will likely use the two "extremes" (reminiscent of reclining a coach-class airline seat). The case is not suited well for holding the iPad upright in its portrait orientation.
The iPad display is covered slightly by the case along all four edges, but, by covering the two shorter edges by fully a sixteenth of an inch, the case can get in the way of viewing and touching the iPad. It should be pointed out that the case covers the ambient light sensor, so if the user relies on the automatic brightness adjustment this case is out of the question. This case does not fit the iPad snugly and only holds the device on the top edge when the cover is closed over the display and the strap is snapped shut.
I personally find this case to be acceptable for my limited needs, but many of the above details are contrary to the details listed on Amazon. I recommend Apple's $39 iPad Case to users who want a case that fits well.
