The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Plaide iPad 2 Back Protector
For complimenting your Burberry plaid scarf or tie, this more cost-efficient generic brand accessory is a nice solution for providing the iPad 2 simple protection while its pattern design can further project your sense of style.
- Access to all external ports and camera
- Lightweight and trim design
- Vinyl exterior can repel liquid spills
- iPad2 easily pops out if shaken or rattled
- Low-grade materials and quality
- Questionable use of the camera port
Made of polycarbonate material, this tablet protector case can shield the iPad 2 against bumps and scratches while its vinyl-like exterior skin can also repel liquid spills. The lightweight and trim shape will easily fit inside a large tablet bag, which should serve useful considering that its hard case style loosely fits the iPad 2. Then again, stowing it in an alternative carrying solution will prevent any dedicated follower of fashion from showing off their device when dressed with some trendy fashion.
- Designed for iPad / iPad 2
- Lightweight protector
- Stylish plaid pattern
- All ports and buttons accessible
The form design only snap-fits two sides, leaving the iPad 2 feeling a bit loose inside the casing. For some, the pattern design may be considered cool and a nice compliment to their particular sense of style.
You may find its slick exterior is less than ideal for confident portability. While it allows access to all ports, the camera hole is too small for proper alignment and easy use.
Separate from its awkward fit, there is already a slight appearance of bubbles and creases on the vinyl skin cover.
Parts of the iPad 2 remain exposed to potential damage and the poor fit causes it to pop out when slightly shaken. It was unharmed by the coffee and water I poured onto its surface, as both were easily wiped off.
I may question its overall value due to the issues that surround the loose form-fit and low-grade materials, but it still only costs $11.75
Although not an outstanding choice, its unique pattern design alone may be enough to suit those who want to accessorize their iPad 2 with some style.
