One of the best cases on the market for the Ellipsis 7
By the individual ratings I gave, one would think my overall would be a 2 maybe a 3. I gave this case a 4 overall. I'll get to that in a few.
For starters the East of Use is great. The case is very simple to install and very easy to take apart, if you should need to. I purchased the 7 tablet for my 7-year-old son. He really needs Fort Knox around the tablet, but this will do just fine.
I gave low numbers in the design aspect of this case. The headphone jack fits several different plugs fine. I

used Skulls, Beats, Apple and some generic ones I got from my HTC One. All fit great. That said, the rubber dust cover for the headphone jack doesn't like to stay closed. It lays flat, but there is no tension on it. I don't know if that is a design flaw, or a fluke with my case. The charging port has a very light amount of tension on it too. Volume rocker and power button are very responsive. All corners have shock guards on them that provide a ton of support. I was very impressed by this. The rear of the case has rubber grips for holding the case. This will come in handy with greasy 7-year-old fingers. The camera (rear and front) cut outs looks great. Not what you would expect from a Verizon branded case. The cut outs look as or even better than some higher priced cases. The biggest set back, which really disappointed me, was the lack of a Micro SD card cut out on the case. One of the great aspects of the Ellipsis 7 was the SD card slot. To get to this, you have to take the case apart completely. Same goes for the SIM card, but honestly who pulls the SIM card out of their device anyway? If another company comes out with a case such as this one, I will switch out for a case with an SD card cut out. Its that important to me.
Above I went over some of the features of this case in the design areas. I'll just leave the features at that. I can say that for the price of the case, you are getting way more than your paying for. I do want to add, that the top layer of the case has a very nice thick quality screen protector on it. So far I have not seen the common mirage or orange peel effect that comes with cases such as these.
Performance will be an on going thing for me. I have had this now for a week with hard core 7 year old use. The case has performed better than I expected and so far, I am very pleased with what it is.
Over all, I recommend this case if you want great protection. I have no use for flip leather foo foo cases with pretty designs on them. I am a guy, outdoorsman, hunt, fish and prefer a rugged flat case for my gear. The case does come in two colors, black and grey or blue and red. I am a Kansas Jayhawk nut, so the red/blue fit very well into my life.
Now to hit on what I said about the overall rating at the start of this review, I gave the overall rating much higher marks that one would expect. Reason being, this is a Verizon branded case for a Verizon branded tablet. The chances of a mid-major to major company running a line of cases for this tablet are slim to none in my opinion. Verizon has put two cases out there for the people who want ruggedness and protection for their tablets. Not much else can be had for this tablet. For that reason alone, I give this an overall rating of 4 out of 5. If say a mid-major company had several cases as rugged as this case, on the market, I would probably drop it to a solid 3.
