The review of covers of Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series for new iPad. Very narrow polycarbonate
SGP — is one of few manufacturing companies of accessories for portable equipment which constantly updates the range and quite often offers very unusual decisions. And at present to modernization underwent besides a brand. At present the company is called as Spigen SGP, but at present we will speak not about rebranding, well and what here to discuss, without considering places of the amusing name for the Russian person? Now it will be a question about very, no, not so, VERY thin protective overlays for new iPad — Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series.
I densely got acquainted with SGP production even in the spring of 2010 when pasted over the 1st iPad with a set of films from this company. Already the rich set and high quality of production then was evident. After iPad 2 underwent similar procedure of protection, and the SGP Dresden Klaus9i Messenger Bag bag still serves me faithfully. For always operation of accessories of the company the incident was only one, with a film, but I did not think in what discrepancy: in curve hands of the founder or after all in features of a silicone layer. Anyway, but I can tell one — in overwhelming majority of cases SGP production, Spigen SGP is more exact already, differs very interesting features, whether it be materials from which the accessory, a design or design is made.
The American producer and this time did not bring. Seeming at the 1st look simple overlays of Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series in fact really simple, but in it also are their main counter added with pair of pleasant features.
Packing as protection against fakes

I always pay attention to packing of the new goods, after all meet, usually, on clothes. At Spigen SGP positive configurations in this area are certainly observed. Earlier many products of the company not especially dazzled with any stylish boxes: ordinary PET plastic or an ordinary cardboard with color polygraphy. In this case is both that and another, but in a little improved look.
Cardboard smooth, qualitative, rather rigid, the plastic window also surprised with the good rigidity. But that was pleasant most of all, so this glossy stamping — own sort protection against a fake. Packing rather expensive also will forge such in handicraft aspects of the Chinese basement offices hardly. Not including that, in the top part there is a small hologram and each product of the company has unique serial number.
Designers of Spigen SGP carried out quite good work and even in so ordinary accessories as an overlay for the back panel of new iPad, packing impresses and it is functional.
Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series have two trivial features. Covers in this ruler very thin, about 1 mm, and even it is less, and they very much lungs — mass of an overlay of only 80 g.
As a material polycarbonate is chosen — it is quite technological and strong plastic. For example, flagman Nokia Lumia 800/900 and HTC One X phones are made of the such. Also, in a past I a long time actively used a polycarbonate cover of Marware MicroShell Folio and any claims in respect of an iznosoustoychivost did not appear.
To me two Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series options got to hands: the glossy transparent and glossy milky-white. In the range of the company there is an opaque black and opaque transparent.
Both slips are executed accurately though in transparent option of an opening for the loudspeaker are as though allocated that appears on a look. It already features of production of an accessory a punching method, but is quite good to guys in Spigen SGP somehow to clean this unusual fringing. On a photo difference of a white and transparent slip in the described area below is visually visible:
Everything is for the rest excellent. There are neither agnails, nor keen edges, creaks does not crack nothing, all openings are where to them a place, and are made accurately and with smooth thinning of a side. Besides at slips thin hooks not being allocated on the general background, but about them I will tell a bit later.
Memoirs from a design of slips positive, from a material — ecstasy. Polycarbonate strong, rather flexible and besides ukhvatisty. From a reverse side of accessories there is a steel plate which does not only decorative function.
It is very useful to owners of Smart Cover. Yes, the cover is compatible to a firm plaid, and even improves its operating experience, strong holding a plaid on the back panel at the expense of an iron plate of the magnet built in Smart Cover.
The slip is simply put on a tablet and even it seemed to me that it more simply from it will fly at active use, but it not so. The cunning design and hardness of polycarbonate provide reliable contact if it is so possible to be expressed
Practically all right side — is one continuous hook. First the tablet is put under it, and later easy movement two small hooks on turnaround corners nestle. For removal of a slip the return operations procedure is used.
On a tablet it does not move, does not crawl and does not dangle, sits as poured in. In spite of the fact that both panels which have fallen to me into hands glossy, they do not slide at all under fingers, unlike an aluminum back of iPad. The successful fellow improves very much considerably.
To press buttons an accessory does not disturb, access to sockets does not block, openings for loudspeakers are made precisely and the sound is not made heavier.
A little grown weight of a tablet, naturally, is felt, but is not critical. After all 80 superfluous гр — it not 130-150 g as some other slips weigh, including options from Spigen SGP.
In respect of an iznosoustoychivost as I already mentioned earlier, polycarbonate — is a strong material. Scratches, naturally, will appear over time, but on a white slip they should not be appreciable at all, and for that time that I used it, it was not rubbed and not scratched. Opaque models in principle are heavy for scratching or rubbing somehow if not to try it to make specially.
With a glossy transparent slip it is slightly more difficult meaning that before than it to put on, it is necessary to wipe perfectly a tablet and a cover too. Not essentially what got between the device and transparent polycarbonate the dust is very visible. For the rest claims are not present.
Naturally, from Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series falling not protection and, practically, not for such purpose the accessory also was created. It is quite good option for protection of the back panel of a tablet against scratches and attritions. The cover very narrow, easy also is absolutely capable to represent itself as the candidate to a protective film, besides its price not so differs from such technological accessories (polymeric films, vinyl or stickers under skin and to it similar) — $33 on an official site. Though, it is necessary to consider and cost of delivery which is capable to develop significantly the product price.
At present for new iPad of thinner and easy slips, than Spigen SGP Case Ultra Thin Series I did not meet. I can safely recommend them to fans of such covers. The white and black options corresponding on color to a frame of a tablet in particular were pleasant.
