Ipad case reviews

I did a search and could not find this posted. A good link to some iPad cases.

http://www.macworld.com/article/1471...sepreview.html

Does anyone have any reviews of their cases yet? I have the Apple case and it works great for standing it up but i would prefer a different case for just having it in my lap.

Thanks

I have to say, I am really loving the Apple case. The ability to fold it into a great position for typing in landscape mode is it's greatest feature, with that nice Apple logo coming in a close second

I am planning to do some reading later on, without the case, just to have that tactile experience.

Talking about cases or accessories in general. Did anyone see if they had a decent amount of 3rd party accessories at the apple store? I bought my iPad at best buy and they didn't have much. Wanted to stop by the apple store to check out what they had. Thanks

I got the Belkin clear grippy case thing.. Provides some nice grip and protectection to the back side. I'm sure there will be 50 or so other products that come up but for now the whole sexiness of the ipad is holding it in it's slim factor..

I got the apple case as well .. And I got to say I really like it. Works great and has a nice feel as well as good protection

I can't fit my iPad right into the apple case. The ports and the holes on the case don't line up. It's so bad the speaker is completely covered. Did I get a bad case?

It's definitely a tight fit. You just need to press it into the sleeve more. Yes, the speaker is partially covered, but doesn't seem to affect the sound much.

I made a sleeve for mine, today. I was going to make it out of denim and then I discovered that it fits right in a piece of pant leg. Ha. All I did was sew one end shut. I left the other end open (the hemmed part.)

It works for now.

They carry several sleeves by belkin and incase. That was the extent of the 3rd party accessories at my local apple store. Everything else was the apple branded accessories.

Sound is noticeably flatter for me. Hmm the case position flap is so nice though!!

Thumbs up iPad cases review site

You can find many iPad cases reviews at ipadcaseden.com. It's good idea to visit before buying anything.

Amazing Case

I have just recently purchased an OtterBox Defender case for my new iPad. I got mine from http://bensbazaar.com. It was only $54.03+$7.00 shipping. The shipping was really fast.

Snugg get really good reviews for their cases, certainly the UK reviews are all positive. They look good and are decent quality for a very decent price.

Good list! There's a ton of ipad accessories. So far, I like the Soul Sleeve the best. It's pretty cheap and I prefer soft fabrics. I was thinking about getting the DoDo Case but I dunno, it seems like there's a ton of those types of cases now. Anyone like it?
