    Great post! Very informative and useful. I have always used Otterbox brand cases, would ou recommend those as well?

    • February 18, 2018 at 4:38 pm

      Yes, Otterbox is a very quality brand for cases. We do recommend a lot of their products.

    I’ve been eyeing an iPad for quite some time now…just never took the plunge to buy it! Your post is giving me some great ideas on how to keep my new accessory in a safe and scratch proof case! All the different options you’ve described makes me want them all lol!

    The idea of having a keyboard seems really nice. However, I was wondering does it come with any money back guarantee or warranty?

    Thanks again, for such an informative post! Gotta start shopping soon!

    • February 19, 2018 at 2:19 pm

      Typically, they are 30-day money back guarantees. Also, some have a year to a lifetime warranty.

    I now have an iPhone for work and am looking at buying an iPad. You have helped me with this great post on the many covers/cases out there that can protect my investment. I will be shopping and buying soon.

    I really like the case by ProCase. I have owned their cases before and I am happy with their products.

    • February 19, 2018 at 2:21 pm

      We really do like cases by ProCase. They are a solid brand and do an excellent job of protecting our gadgets.

    That is really neat that you can turn your iPad into a MacBook. Well, not actually, but having a keyboard for it is an awesome idea. I am certainly going to purchase one of those keyboards for my iPad 5th Generation. Is there any way to get a mouse for the iPad, too?

    • February 19, 2018 at 2:23 pm

      Yeah, we know it’s pretty cool right? Sorry, unfortunately, Apple doesn’t make a mouse that you can use with the iPad. Maybe in a couple years, they will.

    Great post! Funnily enough, I have just sold my iPad and now I miss it haha! I had a defender case which blocks out EMF’s which was great.

    Looking at your selection here there are some great covers around these days. I do like the finite you mentioned first. I will check it out once I have a new iPad 5th gen haha! Enjoyed reading, thank you.

    Decisions, decisions, decisions. I really like that case with the built-in backlit keyboard. Once I get my iPad, that’s the one I’m going to purchase. Who needs a MacBook with that case. Nice post!

    • February 24, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      Exactly, and this is the much cheaper route.

  • February 20, 2018 at 6:38 pm

    I especially liked the Ztotop Premium Leather iPad cover. Leather has a very nice feel in my hands. When I work on my iPad, I have usually gone without a cover and it feels alright, but leather is something I could get into.

    I do have a question though. What have other people’s experiences been with this iPad cover? Did it live up to their expectations? Before I make any purchase, I always like to know what other’s experiences with it have been. I look forward to hearing your answer.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

    • February 20, 2018 at 10:20 pm

      We can relate to that. Something is very sophisticated and classy about a leather case. And, yes you are right it does feel great!

      From the customers that bought the Ztotop case on Amazon, it nearly gets a perfect 5 out 5 rating. It’s even considered an “Amazon Choice” which means it’s one of the most popular ones on Amazon.

      I am very confident that if you purchase it you will be happy with your purchase.

    Great and thorough review of each case! Well, I still have an old Generation 5 and no planning to upgrade to 9.7 inches just yet. Nonetheless, I definitely love tri-fold! DTTO Ultra slim looks really great, especially I like light weight as I carry it around. I also like the flexibility of the cover. I was concerned if it is durable enough but it looks like it has great air cushion and grid to absorb and disperse shock wave. Sounds like a great item! (and a lot of colors to choose from!)
    Thank you for all information!
