I've been sorting through the many helpful reviews on this site and was looking for more opinions about which case is best to cover the back of the iPad that works with the Smart Cover?

I've heard good reviews about the Enki Genius Case, the Belkin Snap Shield and the Incipio Smart Feather.. but I can't decide which case to get. I would love to hear any recommendations. Thank you.

I have a black leather smart cover. I use a switcheasy coverbuddy. Love it. I also have the switcheasy canvas for when I travel and want a wee bit more protection. To me it was worth the investment and they both look great.

belkin snap shield for 2 reasons:

1. One of the few one out there's that's transparant (clear or smoke) and at the same time a matte finish, which is not as slippery as other transparant shells
2. Full coverage (at least the one I got from Target). Maximum protection around where the smart cover connects. A lot of other shells out there leaves way too much space where the smart cover attaches

I've posted this before. It features full coverage to the edges apart from ports and switches/buttons and a magnetic strip on the back to hold the smart cover when it's completely flipped back.

The magnet is strong enough to hold the smart cover steadily and will NOT affect the sleep function.

Downside is only blue and black color. I'm waiting patiently for other colors

I agree, the Switheasy Coverbuddy is by far the best one I have used or tested. The Belkin and Switcheasy are both good but I prefer the Switheasy due to the better quality, cheaper price, and better variety of colors.

Yet another worthless thread started for what reason?

Laziness.

The answer is readily available on the forum already.

OP is too lazy to take the time to sift through the threads on the subject and make a decision.

Sad.

I did search and do my research here and elsewhere, but I wanted opinions on those three shells against each other. You didn't have to click the link to get into this thread, but you decided to waste your time by being a bully.

Thank you to everyone else who has really helped me. I am a college student and having already dropped $500 on an ipad and $70 on a smart cover, I want to make sure that the extra $30 is dropped on a quality product that will protect my ipad. And this is the best place to get recommendations!

No man, I'm tired of newbies not searching, doing one bit of research before cluttering up the forum with duplicate threads, glad you had time to stop by!

Get some rest, come back tomorrow less tired. We'll all have a better time.

I think newbies also have the right to begin a new thread, there are different problems to different people, althought the topic are almost the same.

Can you post some pictures of this case. The ones on their site are not very good.
