Functional, Elegant, Inexpensive

Due to its much large size as compared to other handheld devices, iPad 2 feels much more susceptible to scratches and other damages. Keeping that in mind, it becomes absolutely essential to buy a protective case in order to fully protect your iPad 2. CaseCrown's case is one of the best such cases, and just like other higher end iPad 2 cases it doubles as a stand. This greatly improves its functionality.

One of my favorite things about CaseCrown's case is its design. It is made out of sturdy, elegant faux leather, and when fully closed it looks like a high quality personal journal. The faux leather is also very easy to clean and maintain.

The inner case that actually holds the iPad 2 is soft, yet form-fitting. It was easy to insert the iPad 2 in its proper place, and once it was inside the iPad 2 fit very snuggly and there was no unwanted jiggling. The soft padding on the back provides extra cushioning and protection, although I would not trust this case to protect the iPad 2 from a major drop.

The case is very well designed and all of the ports and controls are fully accessible. You can turn your iPad 2 on and off, adjust the volume, or charge it without ever having to remove it from this case. In fact the only occasion that I can imagine that you would want to take your iPad 2 out of this case would be for the purposes of thorough cleaning. However, if you have a docking device that you dock your iPad 2 with, you may not be able to do so while it is in this case.

As mentioned earlier, this case doubles as a stand for your iPad 2. The small clip on the back allows your iPad to be positioned in two different orientations - one for viewing content, and the other one for typing. The typing orientation is still a bit too angled for my taste, but in general it works fine. The stand unfortunately only works in the landscape mode, but that doesn't seem to be much of a problem as most of the purposes that I would want a stand for my iPad 2 require it to be in a landscape mode.

I was a bit apprehensive about adding extra bulk to my iPad 2 when I use it as a reading device. However, this stand feels incredibly good when held, and the extra thickness actually feels more comfortable as my wrists don't feel too cramped any more.

Overall, this is an incredibly stylish, functional and durable iPad 2 case and I would recommend it as one of the best-designed iPad 2 accessories out there.
