While I love my IPad 2, its flimsy, thin design also scares the daylights out of me. Dropping a cell phone is one thing, but dropping an IPad device is a totally different story ... but you know it's likely to happen at some point and the fragile nature of the IPad 2 plus the cost to replace it created a concern for me. When looking for a case, I was more focused on protection and functionality than appearance. When I stumbled upon the Griffin Survivor Case for the IPad 2, I knew I found what I was looking for as it combined the protection and functionality I wanted as well as the benefit of a rugged appearance. Why I love this particular case: 1) The case includes a heavy-duty screen protector that does not encumber the IPad's touch screen abilities or diminish graphics. 2) The screen protector snaps itself to a hardshell case creating a protective seal that should allow the IPad to survive most general mishaps including exposure to rain or dirt. 3) A rubberized "skin" snaps on to the hardshell case creating an additional protective seal. This skin is versitile in that it has the ability to seal shut exposed areas like the camera lense, speaker and charging port, if desired. The "block" texturing of the skin creates a thickness that allows for a more assured grip and provides additional overall cushion/impact resistance for the IPad's back and corners. 4) A removable stand snaps smartly into the side of the case. A plastic sliding mechanism in the stand presented the only problem I had with this case as it seems likely to break at some point. 5) The product states that it is military tested ... and if this case is designed to handle the conditions of a place like Afghanistan, it should survive my living room. 6) I found the rugged no-nonsense appearance of the case to be appealing as well. Overall, the Griffin Survivor case for the IPad gives me a stronger sense of security that my beloved IPad 2 will be safe from clumsy mishaps as well as decreasing the likelihood of slipping out of my hands.
This case is awesome. My 4 year old autistic son is very rough with his ipad and this case has saved it from breaking more the once. I am so thankful we bought this.
I bought this case for my ipad4 and absolutely love it! It provides great protection all around. The only thing I'm not crazy about is how heavy it makes the iPad. Other than that, love the built in screen display and port covers. Very good fit and has survived being dropped by my 4 year old! Highly recommend this case!
If you buy an iPad just go ahead and order one of these cases also but order it online if not you will pay double in the store. I love my case. I have a 3 year old lil boy who likes to play the games and this case keeps my iPad safe and clean and it gives me alil peace of mind while he plays. It is the best thing they could have invented. I also bought one for my iPod, I would recommend it to anyone and have on several occasions.
This case / cover is the best I have been able to find. It fits tight and has openings for all the iPads necessary openings Charge Camera Speakers etc. The touch screen shield is very sensitive and adds little effort to the operation of the screen. The included stand is very helpful and works well in all applications.
This is the best case for an iPad that you can get. I have a 2-yr old son who has dropped my iPad more than once (on tile even!), but because of this case, nothing has ever broken with my iPad itself, there are no scratches on the actual iPad screen, the screen cover/protector on the case is strong enough to protect against scratches to it and the iPad's screen, but yet has no adverse effects on the sensitivity of the screen. My only annoyance is the stand that came with it. It's pitiful. Took less than two months to break that flimsy little thing. But aside from that, I wouldn't buy any other case. I need the durability and strength of this case! In fact, I'll be buying a case just like this for my iPhone!
I purchased this case and I'm so happy with it! My sister purchased one and paid twice as much as I did! It is difficult to close the case but once you have it on your iPad your set. I used a screw driver to lift the lip to slide it in place. Great value for the price!
The only problem I have is the stand; it keeps sticking on one side when I try to open it. Have to be careful that it doesn't break. Other then that this product does its job.
Buy online and do site to store or order to your home it is double the price if you go to store and buy off the shelf don't know why but it is great product I love it
I love this case. I recommend it to anyone.
I own a pharmacy and we deliver drugs to patient’s homes. I use IPads for my delivery guys to receive patient’s signatures and credit card payment for customers. Needless to say, your average delivery guy is not a real careful individual and the IPad is a delicate and expensive unit. This is where the Griffin Survivor Case saves the day. It is tough, water resistant, and Drop Resistant. It is easy to install and completely covers the entire IPad, even the screen. All the doors or I guess you can call them ports are hinged so they will not fall off or break over time. The case adds some weight and makes the IPad thicker, less slippery, and easier to handle. Being easier to hold is a plus for my drivers and customers alike because they both love to drop computers. With the Survivor Case the IPad will simply bounce when dropped. There is a face plate or screen cover over the entire screen so no matter how abusive as the customers and drivers are the true screen is protected from scratches. For example, Sooner or later someone will use an ink pin to sign on the screen. The Survivor Case is water, coffee, and soda restart. I say this because we previously used tablet laptops and a driver killed one by dumping a BigGulp full of soda on it while driving. The Survivor Case can pass the BigGulp test. About The only thing that the Survivor Case can not protect the IPad from is being forgotten in an unlocked car (in plain sight) while the driver has lunch at McDonald’s.
In collusion this case is excellent. It is tough, water resistant, and drop resistant. It is great for Children, Delivery drivers, and Chimpanzees. It comes in a number of attractive colors and is reasonably priced compared to the price of the IPad. To me it is a no-brainer.
Great product! Had been searching for one online because at our local Walmart it was $79.88 and I just didn't want to give that much. Happened to look at walmart.com and it was $36 so I went to our Walmart thinking it must have went down, no luck. Ordered online site to store picked it up same day... They went and pulled it off the shelf ($79.88) and I picked up... Half price!!!!
I almost bought this on craigslist but had a suspicion they were counterfeit (the name on the box should say New iPad + iPad 2 with spaces between the words (exactly as shown here)!). I have had this case for about two days now. I must say that it feels durable and comfortable in your hands and I like how it covers every parts of your iPad (mine is the 4th/new version). Because of the built in screen, the colorful/rainbow spots that people have mention do appear. However, you can only see them when the screen is black, not when it is lit so that doesn't bother me so much. The responsiveness is great except for the tiny area in the corners, but the responsiveness in those areas are still good. It just takes another tap or two. The home button works perfectly. The only thing that I don't like is the stand. You can really only use it on one side because the other side has the volume buttons and if I try to use the stand on that side, it presses the bottom volume button. But I believe if you are careful enough you might be able to put it so that it doesn't touch the button. The angle of the stand is good but I wish there were more options as to the degrees the iPad can be held upright. The installation was a bit of a pain. It took me maybe 15-20 minutes. The taking off was even more of a pain. Taking off the front piece took some work and damaged my nails (I have weak nails to begin with), so this is a case you should only take apart every once in a while to clean, not every few days. I haven't truly tested the strength of it and hopefully, I never have to, but it gives me a piece of mind to have it. Overall, it is a good product and recommend it!
Great product! Well thought out design. Protects the iPad exceptionally well. Used it on cross-country trip. Would highly recommend.
I don't usually care for writing reviews, but this case really just exceeded my expectations. I feel like Batman made this case, it's just that awesome.
The best coverage. Much better than anything including OtterBox, referring this to all my family that have an iPad.
After investing in a ipad, I wanted a strong case that would protect it. This case meets military standards protecting it from wind, rain, drop damage and more. It also has a built-in screen protector that seals the unit from the enviroment. A little high priced but in this case you get what you pay for.
Ordered the Griffin Survivor Case online and had it shipped to a nearby store for pickup . . . saved quite a bit.
I never write reviews but i thought this deal was too good to not tell everyone looking about...I needed a new case for class... I am in a masters program that includes cadaver dissection. I have a case that I love but I did not want it smelling like the lab. I checked out some cases in the store but was not wanting to spend $80+ on a case. I then checked online and found this case. It is seriously like the exact same as the survivor the store is selling for $80, but half the price. Plus I was able to ship to store same day as purchase. It was great. I put the case on, it was a tad tricky, but after everything is said and done it is perfect for what I want! It protects the ipad and the screen all in one case! It isn't even that bulky, which will be great to carry around at school. I highly recommend purchasing online then picking it up in the store! Saves about $40!!
I have had this case for just a couple weeks now and it hasn't been really tested. I am glad for that and don't want it truly tested. I do have peace of mind with my kids carrying the iPad around because of this case.
Great product, with life warranty.
