Speck iPad Cases Review

Speck was nice enough to send out a couple of their latest iPad cases for review. In this review we take an in-depth look at the Speck Candyshell and Pixelshield for iPad.

Both cases are iPhone cases transformed into larger iPad counterparts. The Candyshell is a very nice looking case and comes in a few colors. The Candyshell offers a soft rubber interior and a hard exterior on the back. The upside to this is instant and easy usability, and the downside is no frontal protection. The iPad is very easy to get in and out of the case because of the inclusion of a docking hinge. The bottom of the case folds up so the iPad can be easily docked into the Apple standard or keyboard dock. Not many other cases have this. You can get the case on Amazon for about $25.


The Speck PixelShield for iPad is a pouch type, carrying case. Obviously, you can’t use the iPad while it is secured into this case. Its main purpose is to carry your iPad around so you can take it out on the fly and it does this very well. You can easily slip your iPad in and out of the case, and there is a pull over to protect the top of the device. The case has a one soft side and one much stronger side. It is recommended you place the iPad’s screen on the harder side to sustain damage. The case is very secure and is an excellent way to protect your iPad. The handle is also a nice addition.  You can get the case on Amazon for about $40.
