I spent my first few weeks with the iPad 2 using only the Apple Smart Cover and screen protectors on front and back. Initially there was a major lack of third party cases for the iPad 2 – in Apple and other retail stores and even online. Over the last few weeks this situation has improved a great deal and I’ve found a number of promising iPad 2 cases online.
The Mivizu Sense iPad 2 Leather Case is one of those. I had never heard of Mivizu before until a reader mentioned this case and it looked interesting enough to try out. Honestly, I had low expectations with such an unknown name. Well, I’ve been using this unknown darkhorse of a case for a couple weeks now and I have been very pleasantly surprised at how much I like it.
I should start here by admitting that until reader Joanne mentioned them in a comment on a post about another case, I had never heard of Mivizu at all. She mentioned this Mivizu Sense iPad 2 Leather Case, and I went and took a look at the web page for it.
The case offers smart cover tech support (for the automatic sleep/wake function for the iPad 2). Honestly the case didn’t excite me much and it was from an unknown (to me at least) company – but it was attractively priced and seemed worth a look, so I ordered one.
And boy am I glad I did! I just got the Mivizu Sense a couple days ago but I am very pleasantly surprised at a what a good case this is. I love its light shade of gray, its leather feels ultra-soft and padded and just very nice to touch and hold. The smart cover sleep/wake function works well and the case is a pleasure to use so far.
I had low expectations for an unknown name and a $40 iPad 2 case – so far this case has far exceeded them, and really looks great. I’ll do a review when I’ve spent more time with the case, but it’s safe to say first impressions are very positive.
