Mach 3 Composites Carbon Fiber iPad Cover - Review
I purchased the glossy cover for my iPad from Kevin at Mach 3 Composites last week. What a great cover for sure. I posted a review similar to this one in his forum, but thought it may be better served here as well.
Customer Service: Let me assure everyone what a great guy Kevin is. He answered my questions promptly, and provided more than the asked for information.
Shipping: He shipped the cover exactly when he said he would, and it arrived at my home exactly when he said it would. The packaging was perfect. There was no way the cover was going to get damaged.
Appearance: Very classy and expensive looking. It is for sure real carbon fiber, no doubt about that. The craftsmanship is above average. The are absolutely zero structural or design flaws with my cover. It is ultra, ultra thin. I can barely tell it is even on.
Fit: One of the things I love most about this cover is the coverage on the sides. The cover stops right at the edge of the angeled silver bezel on the iPad. So this way the cover does not interfere in any way with use of the iPad. Plus, you can put any screen protector you want on without any interference from the cover.
It slips right on with no hassle. No tape, no glue, no tabs to hold it on. It fits firmly to all surfaces of the iPad, and it is not going to fall off. It actually took some wiggling and prying to get it off.
Summary: I totally dig this cover, but I also understand the price is not for everyone. They are on sale right now for $70, which is $20 less than normal. I was ready to pay $90 for it, then it went on sale the day I was ready to buy. When my wife buys her iPad, I will be getting her one of these covers for sure.
