Review: Scosche backSTAGE iPad case

30 11 2011

Initial thoughts: When I was offered a Scosche backSTAGE car seat headrest mount for mounting my iPad in the car to review I jumped at the chance. We do lots of long car journeys and I had been considering buying a DVD player for Piran but this meant we could use my iPad instead.

We liked: The case seems sturdy and does the job it is meant to. It was easy to attach to the headrest and can be left in the car and the iPad just slid in and out. It comes with an anti-glade screen protector as well which is great for daytime watching.

We didn’t like: The ‘Ballistic nylon material’ is a bit grey and dull and the way that it is made makes it look tatty around the edges. It is strong though and I guess as long as it does the job it is meant to then all is well but I am a fan of things that look good as well.

Overall: If Piran sees the iPad he wants to play his games so he was a bit put out that he was just meant to sit and watch. That said, he soon got the idea. The iPad is far enough away for him to see but close enough for him to wear headphones so we will be purchasing some so we can listen to music when he watches a film. Suddenly the trips to and from Cornwall don’t seem too daunting.

Further information: The Scosche backSTAGE car seat headrest mount costs £27.99 and has the following features:

  • Wide velcro strap easily secures to most headrests 
  • Ballistic nylon material provides superior protection 
  • Mesh pockets provide ideal accessory storage space 
  • Open design allows access to all connection and ports 
  • Includes Anti-Glare screen protecto
Disclosure: We were sent an iPad case free of charge for the purpose of this review.
