While the Plus Motif iPad Case
is really cute and stylish and I got lots of complements when I changed from my old Brookstone case, I never felt as secure with it as I did my old case. There's a little bit of padding, but I was definitely more careful with this case. Even so, it got somewhat scratched on the front as I carry it in a bag every day. Further, I've started to notice a bit of wearing on one of the elastic bands that secures my iPad, as if it is wearing away. Also, the placement of one of the elastic bands is such that I have to move it out of the way to turn my iPad on and off or to adjust the volume, which can be a drag. Oddly enough, this is not the elastic band that is wearing through.
My last complaint is that I couldn't find a good configuration for reading a book on my iPad. I primarily play a lot of games and read on my iPad. The setting where the iPad is more upright seemed to be at a bad angle for me to play a game and the more flat setting seemed to always have a glare from the lighting above. There is no good setting for reading if you like to use your iPad portrait style, which is my preferred configuration for reading. In fact, when I just flapped the sides behind the iPad and rested it up against a large book as a prop, it slipped continuously forward, causing me to have to use my arm to keep it in place as I read.
Overall, the case is very cute and I love that you can change the look of it by snapping on and off a completely new style, but I need something a bit more sturdy for my case, and one with better versatility for its play/read configurations. If you are not hard on your iPad and donít do a lot of reading, you may love your Plus Motif iPad Case, but it just didn't fit my lifestyle as well as some others.
