iPad 2 Case Review: Targus Versavu Cover and Stand for iPad 2
Reviewed by Tong Zhang

Editor's Ratings (1-5): 4.5

What's Hot: Ultra protective, smooth 360-degree rotation, steady stand.

What's Not: Adds considerable weight to the tablet.

The Targus Versavu Cover and Stand for iPad 2 case is designed for those who need something in between the Smart Cover and the OtterBox Defender Series case. It has some of the toughness features from OtterBox style cases yet is very easily accessible. You can carry your iPad 2 in the office or use it at home as it has an elegant faux leather exterior. The Targus Versavu Cover and Stand comes not only with a built-in stand but it allows you to rotate the iPad 2 in 360-degress while in the case and prop it up on the stand in either landscape or portrait orientation. Nice! As with most cases that provide heavy protections, the Targus Versavu for iPad 2 adds quite bit of weight to your tablet.



Design

The Targus Versavu Cover & Stand for iPad 2 case really comes in two parts that are sewn together: a hard shell case and a screen cover. The hard shell case feels very sturdy and is molded to fit the iPad 2 perfectly. It?s easy to put the iPad 2 into the shell, just slide in on one side and lightly push the other side for the shell?s edge to latch onto the side of the iPad 2. Your tablet sits in the shell comfortably and securely. There is a cutout hole on the back of the shell to show off the Apple logo on the back of your iPad 2. Another piece of the case is the screen cover that wraps around the back and cover the front of the iPad 2. The cover has a thick and molded insert, and a layer of faux leather on the exterior and a soft microsuede lining on the inside. The cover feels very sturdy yet has some soft padding on the inside and it will not only protect the iPad 2?s screen from scratches but can also absorb a good amount of bump and shock thanks to the thick and soft padding.





The two pieces of the case come together on the back, held by a hard plastic clip and reinforced by double-lined stitching. Both the hard shell and the cover have matching faux leather exterior and to make it even more secure, the cover has an elastic band that can hold the hard shell case shut when you are not using the tablet.

Features

The hard shell case that holds your iPad 2 not only fits perfectly but also has perfect cutouts for all buttons, ports and the rear camera. The shell case contours the curve of the iPad 2 on the back, and has cutout wherever the case meets a button or a port. Everything lines up perfectly and you can access everything easily on your iPad 2. There is a cutout for the speaker grill as well, so you don?t lose any volume or clarity from the iPad 2?s speaker. Since the hard shell case leaves the entire front display of the iPad 2 open, the Home button and the front camera are free for access.





The magic however of the Targus Versavu case comes from the hard plastic clip that holds the hard shell case and the cover together. Thanks to a unique design, the strong plastic clip can also rotate the shell case 360-degrees. This means you can rotate your iPad 2 while it?s in the hard shell case as well. Combine this and the two deep stand grooves on the inside of the cover, you?ve got a built-in stand that can sit your iPad 2 in either landscape or portrait orientation. And you change the orientation by just rotating the shell without taking your iPad 2 out of the case. Very few cases can do this currently on the market. The deep grooves hold the iPad 2 securely in two positions for each orientation.





Conclusion

If you need a steady stand that can prop up your iPad 2 in either landscape or portrait mode and a very protective case, the Targus Versavu Cover & Stand for iPad 2 should definitely be on your shortlist. The case feels like a fortress guarding your iPad 2 and the stand works perfectly. The material and workmanship are top notch, and for a super protective case, the Targus actually looks pretty slim. It?s not a light case however, weighing in at 11.2 oz. The Targus Versavu Cover and Stand case for the iPad 2 comes in black exterior with blue interior.
