Dux Case by STM for iPad mini (Review)

STM has an array of products, but the one I’m focused on for this review is for my wife’s iPad mini. The dux protective cover for the iPad mini is a hard plastic full cover that features a smart cover, a magnetic clasp, and a see-through back cover area. The case covers the entire iPad mini, but isn’t bulky or heavy. It’s surprisingly unobtrusive for a full cover case.

The dux case gives you full access to all of your iPad controls, but also protects them from drops from heights of six feet or so.

dux case notable features:

  • Tested to meet or exceed US Dept. of Defense Standard 810F/G protocols
  • Survives extreme drop test at 6.6 feet or 200 cm
  • Super protective polycarbonate and rubberized TPU bracket for even the most accident prone among us
  • Clear back to customize your device with personal images, scan a tagging barcode or allow your pristine device to shine through
  • Durable and water resistant polyurethane cover to ward off an occasional drip or spill
  • Patent pending magnetic closure for an easy fold into the perfect typing or viewing position
  • Instant on/off cover wakes and turns the device off saving battery life
  • Will fit and protect all generations of the mini (iPad mini, iPad mini Retina, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3)
  • Designed in Australia

Why it’s Frugal: The STM dux case for the iPad mini is frugal because it protects your device from accidental drops, spills, and other random acts that might damage it. Part of frugality is taking care of your devices, especially the expensive ones. $40 to fully protect your (my) $350 investment is a very wise and frugal choice.

The dux case really impressed my wife who had used the Apple smart cover ($30) that I purchased for her with the iPad mini. The back protector is a silicone rubber case which also cost $30. And both together didn’t protect it as well as the single $40 case by STM.

So, she actually gets credit for rating this one. As you can see in the video, she told me to give it a 10/10. She loves it and will probably never use anything else on her mini. And if she’s happy with it, I’m happy with it.

Rating: 10/10

Recommendation: Buy it and love it for the life of your device.
