So it's $3.00 for the back only, right? It looks good.

I just received my poetic thinshell today and I like it better than the folio case I had. The cuts on mine are centered, but the top left corner doesn't snap on all the way. No big deal (to me) for a $4 case since it is still secure.

Ha! I ordered one also and should arrive today, also to use w/ a red smart cover. Looks great! Can't wait to get mine!

----UPDATE---
The case arrived and I really like it. I was using the iPad sans back cover for a few days so it'll take a minute to get used to having something on it now. But it is pretty thin, works great w/ smart cover. I like it better than the Switcheasy CoverBuddy. I got it and it felt bulky, covered the buttons which made them hard to use. This $3 Poetic case is light, leaves the buttons open (personal preference but you should know that it is not 100% covered). Everything lines up well.

The back cover is a little "grippier" than the ipad which is good. I kept feeling like it might slip out of my hands. lol. Overall, good first impression, especially for $3!!

So that back covet is transparent ?

I have one of these on the way.

Ordered just because of the price, but based on these pictures I think i'll leave my iPad naked.

Looks a lot worse than I thought.

Oh well, only cost a couple of pound.

Ordered. Worth trying for the money.

I bought a TPU that I received before launch day and cut out the Smart Cover slot but hopefully this will be a tad nicer.

Mine arrived.

I don't know if it's faulty, but it BARELY fits the iPad Mini. It's far too tight.

I took it off, with some force, and it isn't going anywhere near my iPad again.

Mine maybe faulty, but that thing is going to cause more scratches than it prevents.

I received mine today in the mail. It very nice for the price I paid for it. Doesn't add any extra weight or anything. I really recommend it.

Update: I had to remove the cover seeing as it put a small nick on my ipad
