View Full Version : [iPad Mini] Switcheasy vs Speck vs Macally Case

Apr 5, 2013, 06:04 AM
I am in the market looking for a back case for the Mini, and was curious if anyone has tried any of the following three cases?

Speck Smartshell
Macally Protective Case
Switcheasy Coverbuddy

I like the idea of the Speck case having the metal along the backside of hte case, which is the main attraction for me. The Macally is the case I can find no reviews on; but love how the sound is ported to the front, as well as the smart cover is secured by the case. Switcheasy has always been a great maker of cases, but seem rather generic in regards to no magnetic strip or sound modification. My default is switcheasy, but if anyone has or has tried the Speck or Macally I would appreciate your input. Thanks.

I did have an issue with the CoverBuddy and the plastic being very thin and fragile. I'm ready for my fourth CoverBuddy, but I'm really not interested.

Consider the Moshi concerti.

Coverbuddy, IMO. You can find some similar cheaper options on Amazon though...
