I've just got one of these and it's perfect for my needs. I have one concern though, I bought the nylon black/red version which is a very hard feeling material, which is great for protecting my iPad. My worry is that this material on the inside of the flap feels quite hard and a little coarse, and could possible scratch the iPad screen. Has anyone here been using this case longterm? Have you experienced any scratching of your screen?

I know the iPad glass is pretty hard, but I think the coating on top can scratch, as I do have a small quite shallow scratch on the black border (from before the case).

Any help much appreciated =]

I've popped a screen protector on for now, I guess I can guage over time by the condition of the screen protector, the only problem is it's an anti-glare matte version, which probably won't show those tiny scratches that only show on high gloss surfaces.

I'm suprised at how few people seem to be using this case, I personally love it!

I have had mine on for 2 months with no scratching.

Is yours the harder black with the red nylon interior? I know they make some more expensive ones with include leather and what looks like a softer interior.
