- Not great for watching iPad- April 5, 2022
This is a bullet proof case for travel and has a screen protector. From a protection standpoint it is probably the best. The problem it is it not only allows only 2 viewing positions, but the base and the case are fully separate items. It is impossible to carry the iPad at viewing angle without dropping the iPad. Impossible. There are so many instances for me that I want to carry the iPad from one location to another while being able to view the screen that in the end I replaced this case with another one-piece with multiple viewing anglesNo, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Case is decent stand case awful- March 16, 2022
I have purchased otterbox defender series for my entire families Apple devices dating back to long before the iPhone 6 series (that’s many years & a long ago). Have always been extremely happy with the products. I bought this defender series for iPad Pro 12.9” 4th Gen (2020) and case itself has worked okay. The stand is garbage. Functionality is terrible and best and mine broke within a few months - and barely used at all. Cannot purchase replacement stand and iPad otterbox case isn’t compatible with other standsNo, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- You get what you pay for- April 9, 2022
Tried the rest, ended up with the best. I bought 2 other cases from companies that claimed everything but delivered on nothing before I broke down and bought an Otterbox. I also have an Otterbox on my iPhone 13. The junk I bought before even caused my screen to crack while trying to get the quickly broken pieces back on. My only wish was that the Otterbox kickstand was on the outside of the hard case. It’s annoying to have to take the outer case off to use the stand.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good but not great- September 6, 2021
I bought the otterbox defender immediately after buying my new iPad. I’m happy with the case on the iPad, but the lid is frustrating. It fits maybe *too* tightly, and is a pain to take off every single time. The clip on the inside that holds the pencil, though, is the opposite - it barely holds the pencil, and the pencil falls out every time I remove the lid. So I’m super ambivalent about the lid, even tho the quality of the case overall seems quite high.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Much better than the earlier design!- September 13, 2021
I bought the earlier designed case. It was a bad design. I had to configure a special kickstand for it because the way it was molded made for an intense straight up holding of the tablet. Way too vertical. It was uncomfortable to use, and one of the corners of the guard/kickstand base literally broke off when I opened it one day. After that it wouldn't latch correctly. So, I am delighted that the case has been re-designed. Thanks
