Best Skins Ever for iPad mini

Folks– BestSkinsEver BSE just sent me an update for my L 1324 AB iPad mini WiFi + 4G Total Body Skin. They expect to ship by 23 November 2012. I'll try to post photos once I receive it.

+1 for BSE!

I put my back shield on yesterday and it looks great. Nice fit and covers the whole back.

Bummer to hear that there was a bad customer service experience with someone here. I've had nothing but good interactions with 'em.

Here you go. Hope they show enough detail. It's always hard to get good pics of stuff like this.

See, I don't like that glossy back. I prefer matte back covers

I agree with you but haven't been able to find a matte finish back. There was a company that made a matte back for the iPhone and it looked awesome but eventually just didn't hold up as well as these glossy ones do.

I can deal with the gloss back to keep the iPad from getting scratched without having to put it in a case though

Good thread. I thought I'd prefer matte as well (phantomskinz has them) but the shipping to Canada was astronomical compared to BSE. BSE puts the skins in an envelope without a lot of unnecessary fancy packaging for much more reasonable shipping. Could have saved a couple or 3 more bucks if I'd stop comparing skins and just ordered as their price did just go up overnight lol. Still a deal and a half.

Phantomskinz. Hands down. I have them for my MacBooks.

It's a bit OT, but I'm wondering how would it look like on iP 5 black

However, if I would have iPad mini black, this is definitely the first thing I would buy for it

If you want a matte finish for the back, get a Wrapsol. I have it on my mini and its really sharp! Hides fingerprints awesome and it looks so much better than the glossy finish.

Wrapsol...that's what the skin I used on my iPhone! It was great on my iPhone but started to peel away when I was on a trip. Didn't seem to hold well on the back of the phone.

Are you using one on your iPad? Is it holding up well?

The glossy look is something that bugs me as well, but itīs a trade-off I am willing to make. Ordered a BSE for my iPad mini a few days ago since I only heard good things about them.
