This is a great example of the power of these boards. I called and a girl looked it up. Said they didn't have any. I insisted, so she sent someone to check on the sales floor and sure enough, they has 6 or 7 in stock. It's definitely for the new iPad too. Got one just now. Thanks for the info.

Thumb resize.

I also bought this case at my local Best Buy. Looks great. However, I do not think the fit is as good as it should be. The upper right hand corner is not snug at all. My husband has this case as well. The fit is not snug for him either. He had a Belkin Snap Shield on his iPad 2. The fit was outstanding. This one is not as good. Perhaps we will do an exchange and hope for a better fit next time.

I am having trouble, too. Looks great, but the fits needs to be more secure IMO.

So now I'm reading that a lot of people aren't liking the fit. Anyone else care to expand? Is it too loose?

Mine fits pretty well...all corners snap as they should. Nothing complicated here, protects the back.

Stopped by the Best Buy near me and they only had the model for iPad 2. Said the new one is coming soon.

Returned my Incase Book Jacket Select at BB and picked up a Smart Cover and the Belkin Snap Case for new iPad.

First off, definitely make sure you buy the one for new iPad. I haven't tried the iPad 2 version, but from reports I've read in different places, it's a hit or miss. So the new model has a new box design that definitely differentiates itself from the iPad 2 version.

I LOVE this combination. Upgrading from an iPad 1, for 2 years I oly used one case: the Contour Showcase. Unfortunately contour seems to have bowed out of the case game, cause they stopped updating a lot of their cases. But I loved the protection and somewhat slim profile it kept.

This smart cover + belkin snap case feels like there's nothing on the new iPad. The Belkin feels so good in the hands (got frosted version) and now I place my iPad down on any surface without cringing at all.

Amazing combo. I'll update impressions in a week!!!

It's the feel I'm not liking. The sides of ipad are kind of annoyingly sharp with case on especially if held in landscape. Feels like a giant palm pre after awhile that also had the sharp edges.

It was the Belkin ipad 3 case but I'm going to return it.

I had the ipad 2 and Belkin case but it wasn't uncomfortable at all. My palms have ridges in them after using the new ipad for an hour with this Belkin case.

Maybe i got a bad case or something..

Picked one of these up yesterday and very pleased with it. The fit and finish are perfect and I'm loving the simplicity of it with a smart cover!

I just got an email from Belkin saying the secure version will launch mid April. They didn't give me a specific date though.

I want to buy the Belkin Snap Sheild or the Incipio Smart Feather, but I can't decide. Why did you guys buy the Belkin case and not the Incipio?
Could anyone post some pics of a clear Snap Sheild?

Thank you in advance, Thomas

Mine has completely smooth edges. Maybe the one you got has some rough edges from the molding process. I'm not expert on manufacturing though

They are both nice cases, but the Incipio locks your smart cover in place, meaning you can't remove it unless you remove the back cover. The Bellkin allows you to remove and reattach the smart cover without removing it. It's a matter of preference.

I liked the Belkin better also because I got the clear one where the logo shows, and it's not a fingerprint magnet. The Incipio I tried was the black one, and I also liked the feel of it, but it was less plasticky.

Belkin Snap Case will not fit with BSE/rear skin

I think it would be a good combo since the Belkin isn't a super snug fit.

I can now confirm that with my BSE skin on the rear, my snap case (for ipad 3) will not snap on fully. I can say Snap case was a perfect fit before. Also the back has the oil look where the skin presses against the case.

I have been waiting for the Snap Shield Secure too. As a stopgap measure, I ordered a Tucano Vedo TPU case for the iPad 2 in the hope that it would fit ok (link). It turns out that it fits the new iPad really well, and I really like the way it feels. It also has the magnet on the back to hold the smart cover in place. So I canceled my Amazon pre-order for the Snap Shield Secure.

Cool. I'll check it out. Can you also send me the link for the amazon.com preorder. I can't find the belkin snap case for the 3 on there.

Did your Belkin fit absolutely perfect without any give? Mine fit like a glove and now with the BSE it doesn't snap in.
