Belkin Grip Vue for Apple iPad

25 Mar

The Belkin Grip Vue Case for the iPad offers maximum protection with little bulk.  The Grip Vue, a TPU-like case is impact resistant and extremely durable.  The slick feeling of the case allows it to be easily transferred in and out of backpacks and bags. It’s translucency allows the Apple logo to be seen clearly and offers the ability to add a tint to set it apart from other iPads.  The case has raised covered ports, with the exception of 30-pin connector, speaker, and microphone ports. The case provides some drop protection, but it is really designed to protect it from bumps and dings from daily use.

The case, although very thin, does thicken towards the edge of the case and making it extremely difficult to fit into third party docks, if not impossible.  The case adds minimal weight, but on such a light device, it is quite noticeable. Installing the case is similar to other TPU-cases and can be easily wiggled into place.  Once on, the case fits very snugly, and shows no signs of lifting or loosening.  The case shows minimal fingerprints and will require a thorough cleaning with soap and water every now and then.

The Belkin Grip Vue for the Apple iPad can be bought from Belkin.com for $39.99 and is available in transparent Black, Clear, and Royal Purple.

UPDATE: The original case we purchased was Clear.  The case had to be returned to Belkin due to a discoloration at the center of the case.  The case had be used for approximately six months.  Belkin was swift with their exchange and promptly sent us a Black case at our request.  The Black case seemed noticeably thinner and stronger.  *Two Thumbs Up*
