Plastic corners are very fragile 02/06/2012
This review is from: SwitchEasy SW-CANP2-BK iPad 2 Canvas Folio - Black
This is a great looking case, and does a nice job of protecting the iPad and uses the smartcover technology. It has lots of nice viewing and typing positions.
First and foremost, if you buy the case from anywhere but directly from SwitchEasy, YOU HAVE NO WARRANTY!
This case is difficult to close, despite months of "break-in" time.
However, the biggest issue with the case is that after using it (gently) for about a month or two you'll start to see hairline cracks (or worse) on the corners of the plastic part of the case.
This is exacerbated if you take the iPad out of the case (even once). After three cracked cases, I just gave up and asked for a refund, I didn't want to deal with constantly getting replacements (under warranty).
I didn't want to live in fear each time I take my iPad out for a game with the iCade, that it may crack the case on thw way back in.
So now I'm sporting the cracked case while looking for a suitable replacement. It's a shame, because other than the cracking I REALLY loved this case. Given how thick the plastic is, I'm surprised they are having so many issues.
