In search for the perfect ipad2 Case...

I've been looking for AGES! Below is a list of different ones that i've been looking at along with why I haven't bought them yet. I'm sure you can see the similarities in the cases and what I'm after exactly in a case.

If you know of any more like the cases below please add to these from 10)
Would be great!

- Full Protection
- Smart on/off Feature
-Triangle Fold like Apple smart cover
- Nice leather or material- not cheap TPU
- Slim as possible
- Back case and apple smart cover (NOT AN OPTION....the Apple smart cover leather scratches way to easy and looks crap when it does)
- Black or white case
- Speaker Grill if available
- No open bottom or open top - Full Protection means the case has to wrap around the back completley and have cut outs to all ports etc.


1) ION FACTORY CARBON COVER CASE
http://www.ion-factory.com/carboncover.php
Almost THE PERFECT CASE for me. Ordered it...had it....returned it...
The Triangle fold just collapses under the weight of the ipad2. Not stable at all and the viewing angle is really far back in portrait mode....if you can ever get it to stay and not fall down.

2) JOY FACTORY - SMARSUIT2 CASE

Again another near perfect case.......but the massive cut out at the bottom is a deal breaker for me. Why have 90% protection and then have 10% fully open at the bottom!?

3) MAREWARE MICROSHELL FOLIO

Bottom is left open and I hate the two spine things sticking out of the back.

4) BELKIN TRI FOLD CASE
http://www.belkin.com/uk/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=544116
Case looks like a bad fit and the viewing angle is too far back. Also reports the case collapses under the weight of the ipad2.

5) GROVE IPAD 2 CASE

AMAZING looking case but ads way to much bulk! Back orders are massive as well...

6) PREMIUM K IPAD 2 CASE by VERUS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7iUn_A0ZLQ
Looks kind of good....full protection...not sure about the red lining...also not sure about how stable the case is when in portrait mode. No website on it either- Asian brand I think. Considering buy this just to see what its like....$50 off ebay!

7) SPECK PIXEL HD WRAP - IPAD 2
http://www.speckproducts.com/tablet-ipad-cases/pixelskin-hd-wrap-ipad-case-black.html
Looks great! However...apparently heavy and not very stable in portrait mode. Also the adhesive strip to keep cover closed loses it's stick over time and wont hold. Also NO ON/OFF feature.

8) MODULR IPAD 2 CASE & COVER
CASE: http://www.modulrcase.com/store/ipad-2-case-with-hand-strap.html
COVER: http://www.modulrcase.com/store/ipad-2-cover-stand.html
Have to buy these separate. Looks cool but why would I want those round bubble things sticking out on the back. Yes the cover clips into them to make it more stable but still I'm after a smooth back not stuff sticking out. Also there is a hole where the apple logo is that can be removed or put back in and customized. .......WHY?

9) MIVIZU SENSE CASE- IPAD2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIo8ELzbK_o
Not sure about the quality. Looks really thick. Sleep awake feature isnt perfected on this one. Also the stand sucks...

10) MELKCO LEATHER SMART CASE
http://www.melkco.com/scripts/main/viewitem-APIPA2LCSC1BKLC-IPA2.html
Looks awesome.....really pricey though....also the top is open which sucks.

Feel free to add on....I'm sure there are people looking for similar cases like these ones.

PLEASE NO CHEAP EBAY VERSIONS FROM ASIA.

Thanks

I would love to see a review on the spider cover.. Looks like the material on the back could pull away easily.

Not my auctions, but some pics here...
