Great Case for Autistic Child - Waterproof, Drop Proof, Locks
on September 23, 2012
My husband and I have gone through many iPads and many iPad cases. The ratings on the reviews depends on what you are looking for in a product and I think this is a great product. We were looking for something that would sustain a drop from our second level floor (15 feet high)to the first floor and not cause damage to our iPad. We have 4 boys 9 years and under and our 7 year old son is autistic and nonverbal so he loves the iPad. We had the Otterbox for 1 week and our son performed the drop test on the iPad from the second story. We were shocked by the damage that was caused to our iPad. It literally bowed the iPad and shattered the screen. Another issue we had was that every case we bought, our son was able to take off, leaving the iPad prone to drops with no protection. We paid $99 for the Otterbox and decided to get the LifeProof case. My son performed another "drop test" and when we ran to see what the damage was we were pleasantly surprised. NO DAMAGE. He also cannot get this case off because of the locking device in the headphone port (which by the way we have had not issue with). I can't say I've used the stand, but I also don't like the fact that it doesn't come with a protective cover, hence the reason I am giving this product 4 stars. I get the reason behind that, but I too want my screen to remain free of scratches (for the time that we do have it in good shape). If you want a product that is waterproof, lockable and will sustain a drop from at least 15 feet high, this is your case.
