  1. PF Cinema iPad Case

    Posted by Sideslip on 13th Feb 2013

    I needed a case for a trip and the PF Cinema in black was unavailable at the time, so I bought a less expensive (ca. $60) leather iPad case. A few weeks later it began to split at 2 of the hinges and I was reminded that PFs may be more expensive but they are well made. I've had several cases for iPods, a Kindle, and an iTouch and each is still going strong, and each has developed a nice, worn patina.

    Finally, happily, I received my PF Cinema case. It came in the usually lovely cinnamon colored box, wrapped in pale yellow paper. I wouldn't buy anything on the strength of its packaging, but it does speak to the care and pride PF seems to have about what they make.

    The iPad fits precisely. All seams are well sewn and finished; the leather is luxurious to the touch. It feels nice just to pick up the iPad in its new home. The front and back covers are slightly padded and while this adds a little volume, I will be grateful to have the protection if/when I drop the iPad. The covers are held together by magnets, which don't seem to be strong enough to interfere with any GPS functionality, but hold the covers together securely. When closed, the edges of the font and back covers meet exactly - a miracle to me considering all the joints and hinges and other variables.

    But the ledges designed to secure the iPad in a cinema mode angle do not work. The leather is too slippery and the inserts too low to be able to grab and stop the edge of the iPad from sliding forward. The ledges can't be too thick - they could obtrude on the screen when the case is closed, but as such don't provide enough of an edge. iCase offers a case that hinges the back cover like PF's Cinema case, and solves this problem by creating grooves that catch the edge of the front cover.

    I thought a couple of discrete spots of Velcro might resolve this problem. But I was loath to muck up the leather by sticking male (hooks) and female (loops) strips onto the case.

    The solution came in the kitchen section of K-Mart Con-Tact's Shelf/Drawer Gripper Liner. A small patch on the floor formed by the inside of the front cover is "grippy" enough to hold iPad at a variety of angles without having to be stuck onto either surface with adhesives; it doesn't seem to impact the leather or screen (Con-tact claims it resists mold and mildew - after all it's designed to be used in proximity with food utensils but I'm not yet comfortable enough that it won't react with the screen or leather, so I haven't been folding it up in place; anyone have any thoughts about this?).

    A roll 12' x 5' is about $3 (and you'll have enough left over to line a shelf/drawer or two); it comes in a lot of colors (the orange plays off well against the PF's black leather) and in a lot of textures. PF redeemed by shelf liner.

    4 stars (5 if the ledge had worked); but this design oversight doesn't undermine the other outstanding qualities of this case. For me this is the best iPad case.

    All of my PFs have come from Cases.com. Questions are answered promptly and problems dealt with fairly and cheerfully. They are PF's equal in service and support, and their prices competitive.

  2. Cinema mode does not work!

    Posted by jlw5505 on 7th Feb 2013

    overall, this is a very high quality, great looking, great feel case. however, one of the key reasons i bought this version was for the cinema mode. unfortunately, this mode really does not work. the tabs intended to keep the ipad in position simply do not work! this would be a 5 star product if this aspect was corrected.
