IPEVO PV-01 Apple iPad 2/3/4 Rotating Folio review

 

Loftily called in full the “IPEVO PV-01 360 Degrees Rotating Folio Case for the new iPad 3 and iPad 2: Portrait & Landscape Stand with Multiple View Angles with Strap,” the name tells you basically everything this case brings in a nice combination of tablet styles.

Editor's Rating 

The IPEVO 360 Degrees Rotating Folio Case seeks to combine features from a number of different popular styles, including folio cases, swiveling tablet stands and cases with handstraps . Happily, the PV-01 succeeds well in most of these areas.

Beyond the extras, first and foremost the PV-01 is a folio – in fact, the inner casing may be detached from the outer folio portion altogether for even more lightweight carrying. Purely as a folio, this case would be considered a bit lacking, with only one penholder and no pockets. The inside cover has three trenches to prop the iPad in portrait or landscape mode.

Though most touted for its 360° rotation on the currently trendy central pivot, it’s a bit difficult to imagine the practical applications of placing the tablet at, say, a 58° angle in landscape mode. No matter: What the pivot does provide is easy and convenient rotation to the more traditional 90° and 180° angles. In terms of material, the IPEVO Rotating Case is stitched together firmly and the fabric-lined interior does the job of protecting the screen well enough. The genuine leather is a bit of a disappointment and is clearly not high-grade stuff; also a bit worrisome is the small magnet controlling the on/off function , which doesn’t seem strong enough to last in the long term.
