0.8mm with scratch resistance coating.
i don't know from what material and when they will release it, but looks like a good incipio feather alternative.

overall, although i did not like their old collection (rebel/neos) i really liked the latest products from them (capsulerebel m / vulcan / torrent / reptile (http://www.switcheasy.com/products/Reptile/Reptile.php)).

I saw an up and close video on youtube of this case and it looks exactly like the Incipio Feather except the nude has two layer of a scratch resistant high gloss finish and the colors look pretty cool. Its a little more expensive than the feather at $25 instead of $20 or cheaper for the feather. I'll be passing as I already have a feather that I got from Incipio for $10 and really dont need a more expensive version of the same case.

It would be cool if Switcheasy would drop their prices a bit. With all the cases they have been coming out with the last 2 months, I hope they don't expect everyone to be spending $30 each on multiple cases. Its a good thing they come out with quality product.

V4705
Jan 14, 2010, 04:02 PM
i hope the 2 layers design will do the job, the exterior mat coating of the feather peeled after several weeks and the internal built quality of the slimshield can scratch the back of the iphone.

maybe it's just another snap case, but if it's a good one it can be the best choice in this popular category.

I wasn't looking for a case but this one has grabbed my attention. The bottom is still open is appears. I was looking for a clear case, but honestly how scratch "resistant" could these really be? Clear cases look good for about an hour.

Can you please post some pics when you get it? I emailed Switcheasy about the clear Nude and they never emailed me back. I want to know if the clear version is totally clear or if it has any kind of frost to it. I like to use my Apple logo as a mirror (I have a Seidio Innocase) and if the clear Nude is totally clear, I would still be able to do that if I used the clear Nude. Thx.

So I just got the Ultra Black Nude in the mail today and just had the chance to open it and put it on. The Apple logo can only be seen in certain light conditions or else it looks completely black. I also noticed some watermarks in the middle of the case that can only be seen directly in light. It does feel a bit slick in the hand, similar to that of the naked iphone itself. I will try to post pics later on.

Edit: Just a little extra note. After using it for a few hours I have two words for this case, Fingerprint Magnet. Big time. I took the phone out to clean the case and it also seems like there are some hairline scratches on the inside of the case but I can't really tell if they are scratches or not.

I got my clear Nude yesterday and have already decided to send it back for a refund. It's too slippery, attracts way too many fingerprints and is not nearly as scratch-resistant as I thought it would be. I guess I knew going in that the chrome would be somewhat exposed but it was a bit too exposed for me. There was also some watermarking on the back although I have to admit that it didn't really bother me at all (just thought I'd mention it because I know that it bothers some people). I do love the thinness of the case and the fact that it's clear but that's about it.

It's back to my trusty Innocase II Surface for me. No matter how many cases I order to try to replace that thing, nothing measures up. I don't even know why I bother - there's nothing wrong with the case at all. I think I'm just kind of sick of it because I've had it for so long. For what I'm looking for in a case, it's damn near perfect.

@sepab3 thanks for the google translate link, even if its translation effort is weak hope this will help you understand my experience with the NUDE :)

@psywzrd agreed, that case looks fragile and it collected a bad scratch a few minutes after fitting the iphone :| Moreover I've noticed a very tight fit and I'm a bit concerned about the chrome bezel. As reported in my review if you look the instructions included you may find a warning "do not bend" in English and "do no assemble and disassemble too many times" in other languages as it may break. What? :eek:

I've been wanting to purchase a switcheasy case. I've heard great things seen youtube reviews still can't make up my mind. Found a site that has most of the desighns except for the reptile and nude sure they will carry those to sice they have all the other cases. I really like the Switcheasy rebel M and the RebelSerpent? Has anyone purchased any of these cases which would you reccomend? They look almost similar except the M looks a bit Bulky?

This site has alot of accessories for the iphone. Incipio,Switcheasy,Belkin etc.. that i couldn't find on other sites.

Bought and sold this case the same day after making a SwitchEasy NUDE review (http://next.iepa.net/2010/02/custodia-switcheasy-nude-per-iphone-3gs.html) for my blog. The material looks good, I agree its a fingerprint magnet and collected a bad scratch on the back after during the test :eek: Very tight fit thus making me concerned about the chrome bezel status. IMHO mixed results, should be seen before buying.

I have the rebel M on my phone, and loving it. It is a little bigger, but my phone as taken some pretty tough tumbles since then and is still mint. The size makes no difference to me in a trouser pocket and the quality is top notch.

I got the Ultra Clear as well. No scratches so far, but does have several watermarks which I can't get rid off. Other than that, it does feel like you are not using a case at all.

Feb 6, 2010, 04:26 PM
I'll be getting a 3GS in black in a couple of weeks, so I'm shopping around for a case. I want a clear case which won't add too much bulk, would prefer to use it without a case personally but a friend who already has a black 3GS said they're scratch magnets and recommended I invest in one. I know a thin case like this wouldn't offer much in the way of preventing internal breakages in the event of a big drop but would it be okay for just minor drops like off a table?

Feb 6, 2010, 11:31 PM
I have been using the black nude for a few days and I love this case. It is seriously so thin, it doesn't feel like anything is on the phone. I was using the griffin reveal for the past few months and that case was scratched up within days. I still don't have any scratches. It feels good in hand, just as the iPhone would without any case on it.

Has anybody tried SwitchEasy's new "NUDE" case? I had the rebel and I really liked the way it looked and how it had plastic and silicon to provide the best of both worlds. But when it came down to it, it was just to bulky, so I switched to an Incase slider. I like it but am thinking about switching, any thoughts?

Yes I did test the SwitchEasy NUDE Clear (http://melapolis.com/custodia-switcheasy-nude-per-iphone-3gs-126) but immediately sold it. It's very thin and stylish but has a very tight fit that made me concerned for the chrome bezel. Moreover the case got a bad scratch within minutes despite of its double AV antiscratch coating. Mixed experience in my opinion :)

i'm so disappointed... i didn't expect to see watermarks (newton's rings) on a clear case from a big manufacturer like switcheasy.

but i think the colored versions won't show that, so i don't think you should worry if you're planning to get them.

I've had the nude on my phone for 2 weeks now. The thing is impressive feeling, adds no bulk, practically invisible. Finally just setting my phone down on a table won't mean a new scratch on the back. Thats all I wanted with this case. I'm careful, I don't drop it or carry it in a pocket with keys. Just scuff protection and I'd be a happy customer. But son of a bitch...

THE F$@#ING THING HAS CAUSED MORE SCRATCHES THAN ITS PREVENTED!!!

The front surface edge of the case is practically flush with the glass screen. It doesn't curl around and lip over it, so there is an 1/8-1/16 of an inch of the chrome bezel exposed. What this causes is a perfect little scraping edge that pulls in perfectly sized debris. Everyone knows what happens when debris gets in between the case and the phone. The bezel is scuffed to hell. Seriously, I would have been better off without the case.

Also, I have regularly taken the case off and cleaned it out with a lint-free, microfiber cloth, as I can watch as the crap builds up. Its impossible to keep up with it though. As soon as you put the case back on its back to pulling more debris in. Maybe if I had cleaned it out every couple hours and never put it into my pocket I could have prevented this, but wtf. This shouldn't be necessary. It doesn't give any peace of mind what-so-ever and only forces you to be more vigilant! The exact opposite of what a case is supposed to achieve.

The only offering cases like this can provide is scuff and scratch protection. Not only has it flat out failed at this, but it expeditiously CAUSED exactly what it is supposed to prevent!

I guess to get the kind of protection I want I'll have to go to a zagg shield.. Otherwise add bulk, cover up the prettiness, but seal the gaps as it appears the speck candyshell does.

I recently bought a clear "Nude" and unfortunately, there are tons of watermarks on the back. It almost seems lose fitting. I contacted them and after several emails back and forth, they are agreeing to send me a new one, just have to decide on a color. I have to say that I am [B]very[B] disappointed with their customer service, especially after dealing with Incase's great customer service a couple of times. Anyway, I love the way it felt, almost as if there was nothing on it. So I recommend the case, but maybe choose a color as opposed to the clear.

Maybe you should read the thread right by this one about MyGearStore.com and see what poor customer service really is.

I see what your saying about having to argue, but I think your being overly critical. Maybe they don't have top tier (top 1% of all companies) customer service, but I don't think its fair to say that they have VERY poor customer service.

You're kidding, right? I have about 8 or 9 cases for my 3Gs and the Rebel is nowhere near as bad as you say. Sure, it's not like like a AirJacket or Innocase Preforated Snap, but it isn't like a Speck Candyshell either. Which, btw, isn't that bad either.

I bought the black one and shortly after went back to the Incipio Feather. I didn't like the slick back and prefer Feather's matt. Also the Nude didn't feel any thinner than the Feather for this class of case.

For all around protection and carrying solution I still prefer the Seidio Innocase II Surface and hoster.

Actually customer service for me from SwitchEasy was really good! I purchased the ultrablack and upon opening it was long hairline scratch right in the middle of the case. I told them I bought it on eBay (and yes it's real no doubt) and all i had to do was see them pics, receipt and my address and today, they are sending me another NUDE free of charge. Simple and quick.

I just ordered the ultra clear one this morning once it became available on their site. Ships from San Francisco via USPS first class so shouldn't take too long to get! I will do my best to post my impression if I spare from free time during reading week/finals :) I like how it comes with all those extra goodies for comparatively a reasonable price.

I've really liked switcheasy cases for my iPod Touch. I'm really considering this since i'm not completely satisfied with the options of multi-positional folios and i've tried the Apple Case, Marware Eco-Vue, and the Macally BookStand. One thing I can't find the answer on is whether or not this case will work in the iPad keyboard dock. I got one for free from Apple due to multiple iPad screen issues. I guess if it doesn't fit I could sell it and get a Bluetooth one.

Just ordered the clear. Almost got the black. Not a bad price for all that you get with it. I wonder if the screen protector is any good. Ordered it Sat. about 12 noon and got an e-mail about 1pm saying that it's in the mail with a tracking number. Pretty fast.

Now I'm trying to figure out what bag or sleeve to get for transport. I like the Fossil leather sleeve but I hear it's a tight fit even for a naked iPad. Maybe I can break it in. The Nude is only 1mm thick.

I may have found a replacement to my Belkin Grip Vue and I love that case. This thing is ultra light, comes packed with extras, easy to get on and looks awesome! I'm processing the videos now.

I'll be interested to see how it fairs after a week of use. I want to see if it shows scratches, etc... note it does not cover the bezel so don't expect that with this case.

I just tested the camera connection kit with it and it fits. No idea on the dock as I do not own it nor plan to get it.


Right now I am very tempted to get another color to compare.

Hey everyone,

I ordered the SwitchEasy NUDE Ultra Clear case and to my surprise it arrived today. I am VERY impressed with this case and all the extras it comes with. I am very tempted to buy another one in one of the many colors they offer.

The case works with the iPad Camera Kit. I can not comment on if it works with the dock as I do not own it nor do I plan to.

I quickly shot two videos to share. PLEASE NOTE: These videos are still processing on YouTube so the HD feed may not yet be available and the quality might look bad. If it does try again later and try the HD feed when its done processing.

Video #1 is the video where I show you the contents that it comes with and it can be found here:

Great videos, thanks. Showed me what I needed to know to buy it. For the money it's a great deal. Hopefully it will hold up.

I'm looking for the thinnest case out there to fit into the Fossil sleeve. Which I'm told is tight even for a naked iPad. But leather breaks in so I might get away with it. Love that leather.

For the money I might buy a black one also to switch off. Can't hurt to have a couple of extra stands lying around. That way I can leave one in another room and at work.

I wonder if the stand will also work in a low position for typing?

psychonaut
May 1, 2010, 10:56 PM
Unless I am totally missing something I think the stand only works in one position and thats the one I showed in the video.

For the $29 that SwitchEasy is asking for this case it's an absolute steal. I really did not think I would prefer this over the Belkin Grip Vue that I had been using but once I got it on I can tell you it's not coming off unless I buy a colored version of it (which I am very tempted to do).

The case only adds 1mm to the iPad and it is definitely smaller than the belkin grip vue. My Belkin would not fit in the Waterfield Ultimate Sleeve but the SwitchEasy does. Its also worth noting that my belkin would not fit the iPad camera kit but the SwitchEasy does.

Like I have mentioned elsewhere, this will rival the incipio feather due to it's quality and cost. For those of you wanting the closest thing to nothing on your iPad but still a level of protection this is the way to go, just don't expect bezel protection.

A quick question for you owners out there.

Does the cover snap on securely? Is there any play or does it feel like a snug fit? It's obviously too early to tell, but my biggest concern is that'll it loosen and lose its tightness around the corners over time. I'd hate to have a clicking noise every time I pick up and set down the iPad.

Thanks! :apple:

I am a novice to protectors, but can someone explain to me exactly what level of protection a 1mm piece of plastic offers?

People complain that bezels are uncovered, etc... but what is this plastic protecting from? I guess scratches?

alamperti
May 2, 2010, 10:06 AM
@zub3qin hard cases with a thickness of 1mm or less (even 0,5mm) offer some basic protection against scratches or small bumps. If you're looking for some serious protection you should investigate hybrid products like the Speck CandyShell (http://melapolis.com/custodia-speck-candyshell-per-iphone-3gs-111) or the OtterBox Commuter (http://melapolis.com/custodia-otterbox-commuter-series-case-per-iphone-3gs-1362) series. Those cases are made by a mix of hard (outside) and soft (inside) plastic. A few of them offer protection caps for the headphone jack and dock connector, too :)

It's a snug fit with no rattle thus far. I guess only time will tell how it holds up but thus far I am really enjoying it.

psychonaut,

Could you describe what you'd expect in terms of short-drop protection between the nude and the grip vue? Looking at the materials used it would appear the the belkin might afford more protection? Your thoughts? Also could you describe/compare the general feel of the two? (e.g. Are they comparable in grip? Is one harder/softer/noticeably different in some capacity?)

Thanks! Great videos!

I ordered a white one as well. I also ordered a Waterfield Suede Jacket w/pocket to go with it. I'm hoping the slight added bulk still works with the jacket and plan carry the stand in the pocket. Based on your video, I'm pretty confident that it will work, but we'll see. I also have a keyboard dock and will comment on whether or not the case is compatible with it.

I've used their screen protectors before (they include them is most if not all their cases), and they are pretty good. Just keep in mind that their screen protector is the clear kind, not anti-glare.

I would not expect this case to protect against drops, I think it's more for basic protection against scratches etc... Also remember that this case does not cover the bezel so if it drops I doubt its going to protect the face of your iPad very well.

Grip wise because the SwitchEasy is a hard plastic it is harder to the touch unlike the somewhat tactile feel of the Belkin. Between the two I prefer the SwitchEasy because after prolonged usage it's does not sweat as I have found the Belkin to do somewhat.

Don't get me wrong I love the belkin but the SwitchEasy makes my ipad feel even smaller than my belkin did.

For me I don't need much protection since I baby my iPad and when it's not in use I place it in the hard candy cases bubble sleeve but for those of you looking for more protection the belkin is probably a better choice.

My order was cancelled because I apparently placed the order through the US store and not the international store (you would think Paypal would've given me an error, but oh well). So instead of paying $3 for shipping through the US store, I have to pay $15 for Fedex shipping through the international store, so I decided not to replace my order.

This may not be for everyone... But It looks like it's just as good as some of the other similar cases mentioned (i.e. Speck Candyshell, Belkin Grip Vue, etc.). In addition, it's aggressively priced (compared to competitors) and comes with the standard Switcheasy "kitchen sink".

To be honest, I don't see how this is being hyped up anymore than other cases on this forum. With that said, I think the people that are interested are so for a good reason.

What's all the hype about? I really don't think this case is any good.

I dont think it is hyped any more than the other cases here. I am curious as to why you do not like it?

I have tried multiple cases thus far and filmed many for those on these forums to help in their decision making process and I really think that iPad cases are built around specific needs. One style does not fit all.

IMO based on all the cases I own and have tried:

SwitchEasy NUDE: My #1 choice for those looking for a high quality case at minimal cost. This should be the choice case for those who do not need moderate to maximum protection. Make no mistake about it, this case is just about at minimal as you can get. While it protects against scratches and some bumps, its not going to cover your bezel or protect against drops (IMO) Comes with the case, screen protector, micro fiber cloth, 2 stands and 4 port plugs. Cost = $29

Belkin Grip Vue: Great for those wanting some level of protection for the bezel and minor drops and scratches while not adding much bulk Cost = $49

Macally Metrolpad: Very similar to the Belkin in protection qualities but at a lower cost = $29 Some design differences make the belkin stand out over the Macally (IMO)

Incase Convert Book Jacket: Adds the most bulk out of the cases I have tried but also adds some of the most protection with padding, etc... This is a good case for those wanting an integrated stand, cover, etc... The most expensive at $59

Hard Candy Cases Bubble Sleeve: Best used (IMO) as a transport case when not using the iPad. Outstanding level of protection for when your iPad is in travel/not being used although you can use the iPad in it if you really want to. $49

Waterfield Ultimate Sleeve Case: Very High quality bag used for storing your iPad when it is in travel or not in use. Only the slimmest cases for the iPad will fit in the Waterfield bag (SwitchEasy) so unless your iPad is going naked it may not fit and you should wait for the new Waterfield "Exo" case coming this month (May). Price varies on how you configure the bag = $49 - $70ish

So as you can see, each case serves its own purpose for different needs. For me the combo of either the SwitchEasy, Belkin and Hard Candy Bubble sleeve works very well for me. Others, it all depends.

I think the reson why people are excited about the SwitchEasy is because its a clean minimal design that serves its purpose well while including a number of accessories while keeping cost down.

Hey All,

Received my clear nude today, very fast delivery (Saturday - Monday). Upon receiving the package i went ahead and removed the Belkin Vue and started to apply the screen cover. Fits well, but i have some small air bubbles that refuse to move, i'll work on it as the days go by.

After that, i applied the case. Very easy to put on, but as I was putting it on, I noticed a bump on the left side. I thought it was supposed to be there but after seeing the thing fully on, I realized it was buckled on the left side. It's a small bump but it's still a bump.

I e-mailed switcheasy for an exchange and i'm awaiting their response. Hopefully they have some clears in stock for exchanges.

As far as the comparison to the Belkin, its different. Different feel, on my hand it slips more than the Belkin, but I figured as much going from a rubbery type case to a plastic clear one. If switcheasy exchanges this case before the end of the week when my 14 day return period on the Belkin runs out, i will keep the nude. It's the better bargain for $30, everything works very well, the cover, case, cloth and stands are very simple yet useful. But I can honestly use either case, they both cover the iPad well. Can't go wrong with either one.

No i'll bet I got the last one. I went to the site and it said "Out of stock", but when I looked in my cart there was a black one I had but in there the day before, so I took it.

This was later that night long after you bought yours.

I'll do what I can to see if I can get the video up sooner than Thursday but I can tell you that all the colors look wonderful in person. My wife loves the pink one, it's more like a fuchsia color and looks really cool. The white is really nice too, high gloss and gives that nice Apple feel. Black from what I can tell ( did not remove it from the package yet) looks semi transparent which should look cool on. The turquoise is a perfect match to the colors of my San Jose Sharks who are currently up 3 games to 0 against Detroit ;) The Orange reminds me of those orange ice cream bars and the clear as stated in my original video is beautiful for showing off your iPad in all it's natural beauty.

I'll shoot the video so you can see each case on the iPad. Hope this helps you guys.

This doesn't sound good, O and A. I'm sorry that SwitchEasy hasn't made this an awesome experience for you. I guess I'm going to hold off and stick to a Wrappers UK sleeve for now... Does anyone else have any experience with the NUDE case and iPad 3G? I'd really like to know if O and A might have had a defective NUDE case... It seems like SwitchEasy has had some quality control issues with NUDE cases for iPad arriving scratched, cracked or ill-manufactured (and poorly fitting).

I dont know if you guys have seen this other video on YouTube showing the SwitchEasy in a iPad that has 3G but it looks like it fits. So I wonder if its a defect?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InifadDuGA8

I did another search on YouTube and found another user who had issues with the fit but he had a skin applied to the back of his iPad which would explain that situation.

Mine has not had issues but then again I only have the WiFi model of the iPad.

This is odd, I also have a defective case, mine has a slight warp on the side switcheasy has offered to replace it without having to return anything. I also have a 3G iPad and the case fits fine. It is tight around all edges. I have yet to receive the shipment email so I'm guessing they're out of the nude, but I have no doubt they'll send it as soon as it becomes available.

I got my switcheasy nude (clear) today. It does not fit the 3G iPad properly at the top near the black plastic strip. As another member reported, it does not sit flush and it creeks when you touch the cover in that area. A bit of a disappointment because the thickness, look, and feel are perfect.

Recommended for non-3G'rs... But I'm sorry 3G users... For now look elsewhere...

I'm very surprised with the two stands this case comes with, they work extremely well. And I can fit one nicely in my incase netbook sleeve with my iPad. Also, mine fits perfect...no weird dips in the plastic like some others here reported.

Just got my black Nude case. The fit seems a little loose if anything? I thought it would have fitted a bit more snug.

The 2 stands are cool. I like the minimalist feel and size of the case. Just hoped that the fit was a little tighter.

The cheap tup case I bought cast week was much more snug fit and did not move at all.

Going to live with this for s few days and see how I feel by this weekend.

It's loose around the corners. The sides feel solid but the corners feel like it's going to slip off. The edges near the soaker also feel sharp while the edges near the headphone Jack are smoother. There is also visible mold cut off marks near the sleep button.

I think I may return it. Not real happy about the fit and overall uneven feeling of the edges.

im sorry i didn't take any pictures. I put everything back into the original packaging once I decided that I was going to return.

the black does show fingerprints. Its a transparent black, almost smoky in color. You can see the Apple logo. Its a high gloss finish and eventually will start to show scratches i would think.

i'm really considering the speck hard candy case. But hesistant as I have heard that this case also scracthes easily.

Thanks for the videos! Did accumulated fingerprints show more on the UltraBlack than the UltraClear case? Also, what did you think about the included screen protector: is it antiglare, accumulate fingerprints, make touch-responsiveness/scrolling worse, reduce the quality/crispness of text, produce a rainbow color when iPad is viewed at an angle, etc.?

Mine arrived today. Clear.

It's not perfect...a few small blemishes....which I can live with.

A very little bit frustrated that it doesn't appear to fit with the camera connection kit. This seems like a silly oversight on Switcheasy's part.

I contemplated getting the Exacto knife out and making it fit....but I'm not the patient type and would probably hose it up.

All in all I think it's a nice case for $30. It probably won't be my last case....but it's pretty nice.

I received my Switcheasy Nude case today in black. I have the clear Nude for my iPhone, and I am equally impressed with this case. Feels nice in the hand, and just the amount of protection I was looking for. Not so worried about it scratching; it's there to protect, and in the end it wouldn't be the end of the world for me to have to replace it at some point.

Very pleased, came with lots of extras, good quality case. Mine has a small blemish on one edge, but nothing worth returning it over.

I think I've settled on my case for the foreseeable future, barring some sort of leather folio purchase.

I received my SwitchEasy Nude in Fuchsia today. I figured I'd go for a bright color.

The fit seems fine on my 3G iPad -- mine doesn't seem to have the flaws that others have mentioned.

It definitely fits in the Apple Dock, and it also fits in the WaterField Slip Case. I'm very happy about the latter, as that's the way I want to carry it around in my backpack. This way, I won't have to take off the cover just to put it in the slip case. Snug, but that's not a bad thing.

I did succeed in putting on the included screen protector without any bubbles.

I've been using my white nude for the last couple hours and had a couple comments.

- The case only snaps on the sides, so there is a very slight give on the top and bottom. I can see how if the case is even slightly off (i.e. not cut properly), this could cause the squeaking problem some people are reporting. My case fits really well, but I also don't have a 3G.

- My only CON so far (and this is really nit picking) is that the case slides (side to side) when on the stand really easily. This is due to the case being really smooth and the stand.

Like I said it's a really silly CON, but it was something I noticed. Overall the case is really nice and I like how the white goes with the Apple Keyboard Dock.

I really like the case but the movement on the top and bottom bother me. I wonder if I exchange it can they check the fit to make sure it doesn't moves much?

When it's in landscape mode and I'm holding it the right and left sides that my hands grip i can feel the movement. I just feel that this case should fit snug and there should be no movement. Am I being too picky?
The area near the sleep button and the volume buttons is the worse. It moves a lot.

The company has been great to work with so far.

What to do?:confused:

So as i promised to some others I finally got around to trying the Screen Protector that comes with this case.

Clarity is really good, I looked at all angles and could not see a rainbow effect. Finger printing is not as bad as the unprotected iPad screen but it does still show (they are pretty easy to wipe off).

The cut on the screen protector is really good, I installed it from the top down and it lined up great. You can see the outline of the screen protector against the glass surface (where it ends) but that is true with all protectors.

I did not take a ton of time putting it on so I got a ton of bubbles in the install but was able to work most of them out. I think if you really take care you can install it with minimal to no bubbles.

To me it seemed like my finger ran across the iPad screen more smoothly without the protector on.

In the end I removed it because I did not want to deal with the bubbles that I still had plus I had a few specks of dust or lint I would have had to work out. I may go back when I have a lot of time to install it and try again but I think (as crazy as it sounds) I may keep a screen protector off my iPad just to retain its natural screen look and feel.

I did not shoot a video for this as I did not think it would be all that interesting watching some guy (me) putting a screen protector on. LOL. :D

So as i promised to some others I finally got around to trying the Screen Protector that comes with this case.

Clarity is really good, I looked at all angles and could not see a rainbow effect. Finger printing is not as bad as the unprotected iPad screen but it does still show (they are pretty easy to wipe off).

The cut on the screen protector is really good, I installed it from the top down and it lined up great. You can see the outline of the screen protector against the glass surface (where it ends) but that is true with all protectors.

I did not take a ton of time putting it on so I got a ton of bubbles in the install but was able to work most of them out. I think if you really take care you can install it with minimal to no bubbles.

To me it seemed like my finger ran across the iPad screen more smoothly without the protector on.

In the end I removed it because I did not want to deal with the bubbles that I still had plus I had a few specks of dust or lint I would have had to work out. I may go back when I have a lot of time to install it and try again but I think (as crazy as it sounds) I may keep a screen protector off my iPad just to retain its natural screen look and feel.

You're probably right about not needing a vid for that haha, but very useful information all the same, I'm sure all of use here appreciate the lengths you have gone to with all of this. In fact it was your videos that convinced me to buy one (finally on the european store). I ordered the clear one.
So many thanks to you psychonaut.

Psychonaut, thank you so much for your very good impressions of the case. I'm already subscribed to you on YouTube and hope to hear from you (Twitter?) if you end up finding any other iPad accessories that you find worthy of your review--you're reviews are really awesome!

Thanks again. I have some other reviews/impressions i'll hopefully be posting between today and the end of the weekend on some other iPad accessories. :)

Mine arrived today. Clear.

It's not perfect...a few small blemishes....which I can live with.

A very little bit frustrated that it doesn't appear to fit with the camera connection kit. This seems like a silly oversight on Switcheasy's part.

I contemplated getting the Exacto knife out and making it fit....but I'm not the patient type and would probably hose it up.

All in all I think it's a nice case for $30. It probably won't be my last case....but it's pretty nice.

Are you sure about the camera connection kit not fitting because in the video's posted he shows that the kit does work... :confused:

Omg that guy has done some serious drugs. I stopped watching after listening to him talk for aprox 20 seconds. Couldn't take anymore.

You caved to soon! It's funny at the end lol

In all honesty I just stuck it in there. I really didn't want to use brute force. I will try it this weekend in a real world scenario.

Bummer. That's all I can say.

It doesn't fit the 3G correctly and is sharp all around the edges where you hold the device. It is very uncomfortable if you're a thumb typer.

Great potential but needs some tweaking.

After a full day, I like, but don't love it.

I'm not sure if it's exactly what I am looking for, but it's in the right direction. I really think the thing I like most about it is the travel stand. If I could find one similar that collapses flat like the switcheasy one then it would be an easier decision for me to look for a different case.

Thanks! I thought it would be more sheer, but it's definitely opaque. I thought that gives it a little more character! :apple:

Liking the sticker on the back! I placed my order for a clear one yesterday and am hoping it gets here by Thursday ( my birthday ), will probably go out and I want to show everyone the SwitchEasy case.

I have the Apple case...like it, I have the Belkin Grip Vue ( the original clear with the lip over the aluminum )....like it too, and now waiting on the SE Nude...hoping I love it!

I have to STOP buying cases and apps for this thing, but I am having so much fun:D

Thanks! I have the vue also, I loved it but found it a little bland and thick. I also had the :apple: case, but I returned that one because I didn't like the flap and how dirty it got. I think I'll stick with the NUDE for now! :D

I just got me nude.

A few have mentioned that the edges are rough in some spots, and mine is also like this.

This is minor issue, and can be buffed down with a fine emory stick or whatever.

Overall, it's sort of cheap but WTF :D

My 2 issues were the sharp edges and the fit especially around the corners.

Turquoise looks awesome!

I'm still torn between this, the Belkin Grip Vue, and the Hard Candy Sleek Skin. The rough edges on the NUDE would be a big problem for me, and I'm afraid that filing them down (apart from the fact that we shouldn't have to do that) will make the case uneven, or would rub marks would be visible.

I ordered my ultra clear on the third and it hasn't shipped. I emailed swith easy about my order and they said it was out of stock at the time and they are hoping to ship it soon. That all happened Friday. :confused:

Are you in the US or UK? I ordered mine on Wednesday (5th) and it is apparently being delivered tomorrow (10th).
I'm a little bit worried about how good it will be now, since there are quite a few complaints on this thread.
I've ordered the clear version and I'll add to this thread once I get it (if people want me to), although I obviously don't have an iPad yet.

I've decided to go with the Belkin Grip Vue. The Switcheasy looks nice but it seems too much of a lottery as to whether you'll get a defective or damaged unit or not - there are a few videos on YouTube which show the case with hairline cracks on arrival.

Plus, the rigid plastic form may protective the back of the iPad from getting scratched, but the case itself looks like it would show scratches on it, and there is probably further risk of it cracking or getting damaged in some way. The Belkin, being more like tupperware I think, can probably absorb more damage and not show it.

Any opinions or reports of the nude scratching the back of the actual iPad? I've read a few reports of this for the iPhone and was wondering if anyone had experiences with the iPad or is this an abnormal phenomenon?

Thanks...
