    Speck case. Form fitting, protects good and has many settings for holding it in video mode.

    I have the ifrogz breeze case in silver and black. Makes the black mini look really nice. Also protects the back very nicely.

    I have an otterbox defender and think the fit is perfect.

    Has anyone had it since launch? I am curious if there is any scuffing caused by the case over time.
    Thanks ahead of time.

    Slim-Fit Multi-angle Case:

    ROOCASE Slim-Fit Vegan Leather Case Cover for Apple iPad Mini - Black



    So I've been using these cases for about a week now and I really LOVE them!



    The Ultra-Slim folio case is very similar to the original apple ipad case where the ipad slips into place and the flap is "tucked" into place behind the ipad. The front cover folds back and tucks under to create the *stand* for two viewing angles like the original apple case. There is also a stylus holder on the back. Decent protection from drops and the bezel and sides are completely covered to guard against scratches and accidental "face down" predicaments. Sleep/wake function works well. The only minor issue I have with this case is that the part that covers the bezel sometimes makes it a little difficult to access the very edge of the screen to type or click on something. But overall, a good case.



    The Slim-FIt Multi-Angle case has three great (and sturdy) viewing angles and is different from the Ultra-Slim because the bezel is completely uncovered except in two places where the ipad is popped in and held in place which allows you to see the ipad and appreciate it's beauty! Cover has a little clip type closure that keeps the ipad from opening in your bag or in case of a drop which is a good thing because the sides and bezel are exposed when the case is open. Clip also doubles as a sort of grip for your right hand. Decent protection from drops (when the case is closed). There is an elastic "handle" on the inside of the cover where you can slip in your left hand and easily hang on to the case single-handed.There is a stylus holder on the side. Sleep/wake function works well. (Seems even slimmer than the "ultra-slim" folio case, mainly because the part that covers the bezel on the ultra-slim adds a few millimeters.) Fantastic case!



    (FYI: The first cases sent to me had issues with the sleep/wake function. But customer service at rooCASE is BEYOND amazing and they sent out replacement cases to me the day after I contacted them along with a prepaid return label for the defective ones.)



    I highly recommend these cases!

    Otterbox Defender. Literally never touched the screen without it. Fantastic case, very unintrusive, and the built in screen protector is much better than I expected.

    I don't care for the keyboard cases. You lose the ability to hold your iPad and use it in portrait mode.

    I agree with Alli ^ and you need super small hands to operate the keyboard.

    I just go with a smart cover and a Caudabe Mini Shell for the back. Perfect setup in my opinion because it still keeps the mini thin and light, and you can see through the Caudabe to the back of the mini.

    I only use a Smart Cover when traveling. Otherwise the mini is naked. It's too beautiful and feels too good not to.

    I just got my Speck FitFolio today and love it. I always love Speck products though. Protects well though it was a tight squeeze getting it in there. Like you said, many angles for video viewing and typing. I had been using a SmartCover and a POS clear case from X-Doria. Everyone do yourselves a favor and avoid that X-Doria clear shell. It cracked from simply being ON the iPad. No drops, nothing. You could watch the cracks creep their way down from the corners day by day. Just poor testing or quality control.

    I'm actually really liking the new Apple smart case for the mini. Seems to be holding up well and it's somewhat fashionable. I bought the black one. It does it's job.

    I just got a Moshi Versacover for my rMini and am loving it so far. A bit pricey ($50 USD), but it seems well-made, feels very nice in your hand, and does a good job of balancing size/weight and protection.

    I got the official leather case for the iPad mini because I also have one for the Air and my 5S. It is an awesome case. I got it in red.

    Most cases I saw and tested were just ugly or made the iPad Mini too fat

    The best case I found and use is the DodoCase, which is really awesome, trust me 😱
