Review of the Targus 360 Rotating Stand & Case for iPad 2

Targus 360 Rotating Stand & CaseThe Targus 360 Rotating Stand/Case (THZ045AP) is a dual function case and stand for the Apple iPad 2. What is unique about the case is how it allows your iPad 2 to be rotated into both portrait and landscape positions.  In addition, a microfiber faux suede interior protects the screen of your tablet against scratches when travelling, while an elastic band keeps the flap tight.

What I liked about the Targus case:

  • High quality build and stitching that you can expect from Targus.
  • Extremely easy to your iPad 2 into the form-fitting plastic hard shell; it remains snugly in position once installed. Clearly, Targus took great pains to make the fit just perfect.
  • Elastic band is positioned nearer to the edge than similar cases. This is an excellent design decision in my opinion, as this makes it far easier to slip the elastic band into position or out of the way.

The Targus 360 Rotating Stand & Case for iPad 2 is available in Singapore as of June 2011, at a suggested retail price of SG $99.90.
