Accessory review update: Don’t buy the IPEVO Origami Folio iPad case
About three weeks ago, I reviewed the IPEVO Origami Folio iPad case. I originally gave it four-and-a-half out of five stars because it’s a thin, light, and fairly functional case. However, as I pointed out, it’s rather flimsy – and that fact has come to bite the case in its thin, suede butt.
I took the picture you see above today. After using it for another three weeks after my review (which took me two) I discovered that this case is shoddily built. The threads keeping the case together have been falling out one by one. Thankfully, the case is also glued, but the case definitely feels less solid – yes, even less solid than flimsy.
For $39.00, this product’s level of craftsmanship and quality should be exponentially more than it is. It’s truly unfortunate that this case is starting to fall apart, as, before it broke, it was my favorite case to use. Of course, now that I have a case that is disintegrating further every time I pick it up, I’ll have to switch back to IPEVO’s 360 Degrees case – or possibly ZooGue’s Leather Case Genius, since the other IPEVO case is made out of the same material as this one, though it is a tad thicker.
I’ve updated the review’s score to reflect how poorly this $39.00 case has held up.
It just goes to show you how, regardless of price, any product can turn out to be a flop.
