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.
Marware Apple iPad 2 / 3 / 4 Microshell Back Protector in Purple
With its basic black polycarbonate shell, the Marware Microshell tablet protector may not be much to look at, but in terms of inexpensive defense against everyday accidents, it’s a real eye-opener. And the compatibility with Smart Covers will make the Microshell back protector even more appealing the New iPad (and iPad 2) owners.
- Sturdy polycarbonate shell
- Compatible with Smart Cover
- Extremely lightweight
- Unexciting design
- No extra features
Owners of the New iPad (and Apple iPad 2) seeking basic yet inexpensive protection for their handy new tablet will certainly be pleased that Marware has available a nice, sturdy no-frills product in the $25 range. The Microshell back protector for the New iPad is yet another quality tablet case from Marware – and another quality accessory for iPad users.
Of course, tablet back protectors are about defense of the device first and aesthetics last, so the minimalistic, basic-black look won’t be the most impressive feature in the Microshell. But with the incredibly lightweight yet super-durable polycarbonate material used, who cares?
- Allows access to all controls and ports for charging and syncing while still in the case
- Compatible with Apple Smart Cover
- Ultra-thin, lightweight polycarbonate back shell measures only 1.7mm thin
- Protects device speaker without sound interference
- Reinforced snap-in corners for added security and protection
- Camera hole on back of case
The Marware Microshell case fulfills its purpose to defend against everyday problems quite well and its compatibility with Smart Covers will certainly be a huge plus for some New iPad users. The cutouts are all aligned perfectly and the Microshell only loses out on its lack of extra features.
The back of the New iPad is well protected by the Microshell with tough, durable polycarbonate, which boasts truly incredible tensile strength for such a low-weight material.
Right down to the clips holding in the New iPad, the Marware Microshell case is constructed from high-quality polycarbonate that should last the user the lifetime of his/her tablet.
At a retail price of around $35, the New iPad owner would be hard-pressed to find this much protection in a simple back protector. We imagine this product will be a popular choice as a first tablet case for iPad users – and it might end up being the last as well....
What more positives can we accentuate about the Marware Microshell New iPad back protector? As long as basic colors don’t bother you, this light and tough back protector is an excellent choice for iPad fans – particularly those into the Smart Cover. Quality plus price equals one great solution from Marware.
