There isn't much that hasn't been said about Pelican cases already, so I'll relate my own experience. My wife bought me an Ellipsis 8 tablet, and I wanted a case to protect inside my backpack during my commute on public transit. Most cases for tablets are flimsy, so I wanted something tough that would also withstand a leaking lunch or rain-soaked dash. The Pelican case is it. I also took my tablet on a weekend campout with my scout troop, and one of the lads left my table out in the rain. Luckily, it was in the case, so it emerged with nary a drop of water on it.

The only issue I have is that thickness-wise, my tablet is a little thin for the case, but since it's not custom made for this tablet, I don't consider that an issue. I glued a thin piece of foam inside the lid to keep it steady inside, and that has worked perfectly. Very satisfied with this case.

Pelican advertises the new iPad Mini fits this case. The Zenpad S 8.0 a fraction of a millimeter wider than the iPad Mini but does not fit.

Even if it did fit, the tablet would rattle up and down and bounce between the halves of the case because there is no cushioning inside that fills the void of a thin tablet. You would have to fit two tablets to fill the the void and have a snug fit. Pelican is known for offering padded insides to prevent movement of contents.

I own many Pelican products and this one disappointed. Not because I couldn't use it, but because there is no internal padding for a snug fit (there is a thin, padded liner).

            As usual- Completely satisfied with my purchase from here and Pelican products. The great thing about this case is you probably will NEVER need to purchase another case, as long as your tablets keep within size. Even if they do get larger you can use the case for small items for camping - hair pins, batteries, memory cards, whatever. So it's not a useless purchase that you have to keep doing every couple years! :D Very happy!

            Great protection for the cost

            Comments about Pelican 1055CC Hardback Case for Tablets (Black):

            This case is very protective, but not overly bulky. It fits my iPad Mini with a TPU case; it's not a perfect fit, but it's still got a little room.

            I'll put it in my work bag and not worry about anything crushing it. But, I wish it had a
            strap or hidden handle for carrying it on it's own.

                Having owned a few Pelican cases for various products from Cameras to Electronics I needed a sturdy case for my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. This is a perfect case that holds it along with the Samsung Case. No issues or problems with fit or anyting.

                  I use this to protect my Kindle (3) Keyboard while traveling after learning the hard way that those jobbies are SUPER FRAGILE. Haven't had any problems since, and this case is basically built for war. There's not enough internal space for a Kindle with a cover, though.

                      Twelve year old son with a Kindle Fire---do I really need to say more? Pelican is the perfect match. Pelican provides protection beyond any other case.
