Review: RooCase ORB Tablet System

RooCase's ORB Tablet System is a series of cases and mounts built around a shell case. All cases within the system include the shell case, which has an opening on the back to fit the ORB Button — a mechanism which allows users to snap the shell case into other parts of the system. Pinching the spring-loaded release inside the button easily releases the shell from whatever case or mount it's in. The ORB system is similar to Otterbox's Agility System in concept, but not necessarily in functionality. Although you really only need to buy one of the ORB cases, there are many different possible pieces to purchase separately — we'll be reviewing the entire system as a whole, while providing our thoughts on the individual pieces. We received shells for the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini, and we'll be concentrating on the latter two for purposes of this review.{/exp:char_limit}
