Tech21 Impact Mesh iPad mini Case Review

How do you make a really slim case really protective? With an orange colored material called D3O. And Tech21 is a company known for incorporating this material into its protective cases, more notably the Impact Band for the iPhone, as an impact-protection agent which hardens on impact in order to absorb and disperse shock away from the encased device. One of these cases is the new Impact Mesh case for the iPad mini, a seemingly simplistic slim TPU case that's more drop protective than any ordinary slim TPU style case. And as you can tell straight away, the Impact Mesh case is also Smart Cover-compatible. As cool as Tech21's D3O might sound, is it really worth spending $40 on? Let's find out.

LifeProof Fre iPad mini Case Review

We managed to cover every iPhone case LifeProof has made over the years except for one, LifeProof's iPad case. Introduced in June, LifeProof's Fre case for the iPad mini is an unseemingly ultra-protective case that as you'd expect, is designed to be waterproof down to depths of 6.6ft, drop and impact proof from up to 4ft, snow proof, dirt and sand proof. Despite our underwhelming experience with the Fre case for the iPhone 5, LifeProof has ironed out some of the more infamous kinks with the iPad mini variant. But such a ruggedly slim tablet case doesn't come cheap, the Fre will set you back $100. Arguably a small price to pay in exchange for peace of mind. But is it good enough? Let's find out!

Urban Armor Gear UAG Composite iPad mini Case Review

Poetic Atmosphere Case for iPhone 5 & iPad mini Review

There is just something about a clean cut, well designed case that keeps your iOS devices looking streamlined straight across the board. What helps that cause even more is the extremely reasonable prices for these cases. We were extremely happy to receive the Poetic Atmosphere series for the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini. I'm actually a little disappointed that we couldn’t get you this review sooner. So let me make it up to you by taking a closer look at both cases together. Hit the jump to see if the clean look and price point is worth your time, or whether the Atmosphere is just another dust collector of a case.
