I bought this product for my ipad mini two weeks ago, and now it already broken into two parts. Although I used my ipad mini not extensively, still the hinges was easly broken. The hinge itself was made from rubber which deteriorated very easy. The product itself is very good in terms of protecting the ipad mini, as long as it's in closed position (once you open it several times, the hinge will be broken.). Actually I like this product, but the hinges really make this product downgraded.
