Well, looks like the company that makes/sells these is catching on and just bumped the price up six bucks.

$16 is still a steal. I just purchased it with Amazon Prime so it's $16 shipped.

Having experience with factories in China and how production is made, I am sure this is 100% equivalent in quality from the brand name version by Marware. Most likely the same factories are producing the same mold just branded differently. They just made cosmetic changes on the front but production and construction as seen by the same materials of the inside are identical. Functionality/design is identical except closing latch. This also does look slimmer from the pictures.

I am returning my Marware CEO Hybrid for iPad 3 for a refund. $45 vs $16 is too good to pass up.

Thanks OP for sharing!

LOL... Hadn't placed my order yet, but it was in my "cart" and still priced at $10! Just hit confirm now.

Signed up for Amazon Prime also to get the faster shipping, but I'm positive I'll cancel within the month. Has anyone had a problem doing that?

So $9.99 out the door! Can't beat that anywhere. Thanks again for the heads up on this.

$10 is a ridiculous steal! They are probably making a dollar or so in profits.

I would keep Prime. I order almost everything from Amazon now.

For what it's worth, a similar case that I was considering, is the Scosche folio P2. It's on sale on their site for $30. It lacks the sleep/wake feature so that's why I passed on it. But it also has more slots in which to angle the iPad for viewing. That might be something others would find valuable. The white carbon fiber I bet looks good with the white iPad. Here is a link to it and a pic.

Really? No wonder it was $10. Is this confirmed?

Assume you're referencing the Scosche. The function works fine on the Moko.

Wrong comment regarding wrong case. The Moko works fine.

Ordered mine today, thanks for the heads up. Even at 26 shipped two day it's cheaper than anything else I could find at that quality level.

Close, but not identical. The Poetic doesn't appear to have the extra strap to keep the flap flat against the back when fully opened. You really need something like that to take advantage of the hand strap. Without it, it, it's going to swing open and closed in your hand.

It depends. Its about 80 bucks a year, and keep in mind Amazon might be charging sales tax in CA (damn you tax mongols, can't you leave Amazon alone!!], i think. I know i read it somewhere, but currently the only articles i can find says that Amazon has until the end of July to lobby Congress for a federal solution... otherwise starting september this year it's taxes for CA.

@OP, great find, i have a lovely $20 Amazon giftcard AND Amazon prime! i was debating between this and this one: http://www.amazon.com/splash-SAFARI-...lp_edpp_ttl_in

by the looks of it, the second does seem quite good looking and only about $16, but it will be released on the 29th...anyway I am waiting form y local bestbuy to get some more white iPads!!

[would a white iPad and black case look any good, or should i go for black and black?]

Why they raised the price when I am ordering it?

Macrumors must bring them tons of customers, so Amazon raised the price from $10 to $15.99 when I am typing.

Got mine today.
It's a great buy for $10. But unlike others on this post I cannot get the on/off function to work. It appears that the corner clamps prevent the lid from fully closing. I also tried taking the the iPad out of the case and pressing it against the magnet area but that also did not work.
Iam also wandering if over time the clip on the cover will leave a mark.
I am going to try it for a few days and see how it goes. I figure I am only out 1 beer at a blackhawks game
