Within 6-months the corners of the casing had split and fallen apart. It is almost as if the case is slightly too small for the iPad and the pressure on the corners caused them to crack.
The device has never been dropped and is stored inside another Belkin carry case when not in use so I can't even blame it on wear and tear, it just fell apart.
The only reason I've awarded it two stars instead of one is because I like the design of the case; the leather material doesn't look cheap and the buckle tab prevents the cover from falling open.
It's just a shame the quality isn't what it should be.
