Speck's PixelSkin HD Wrap offers all-around protection for the iPad, but with some quirks

Albert Filice | April 24, 2013
The PixelSkin HD Wrap has a eye-catching look, but the functionality isn't as intuitive as you might think.

The inside of the cover is segmented to help it fold better (it actually reminds me of a chocolate bar), yet there's no microfiber to help keep your screen free of smudges--it's just the same material the rest of the case is made of. Also found along the inside edge of the cover is the painfully obvious cutout for the cover's Sleep/Wake magnet. It isn't exactly pretty, but it works like it should.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a case with a cover that won't ever open by accident, or enjoy the case's "new improved viewing stand," then the PixelSkin HD should be up for your consideration. However, I wouldn't advise you to purchase this case on a whim--see if you can try it out before you buy. It's functionality isn't for everyone.
