Cool Coverbuddy for iPad Mini

Anyone pre-ordering this? Looks slick.

Looks very nice, and would go well with the Smart Cover. My only issue would be that 1) The Smart Cover is kind of lame, and 2) the combo is expensive ($60+). But the case itself looks very nicely protective - as most switcheasy products are...

Will show scratches, and scuffs in a hot second. They should have used TPU.

I like the harder polycarb than TPU - I take scratches out bi monthly in 5 min with a car buffer and compound....

I have it in ultra clear. Good back shell but a bit difficult to take off and I don't like that the volume and sleep/awake buttons are now covered - makes them a little hard to press. Still it's a great value and works well so I gave it a 4.5 out of 5 in my most recent review.

Can someone confirm if the bezel is luckily to be scratched by putting on or taking off .. I have a black mini and I hear the bezel is prone to chipping like the iPhone 5 ..... Thanks

TPU better absorbs impacts.
