    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 wondering if I should get this instead of ghost armor full body skin , they want $50 with install

    I already have a Smart Cover & I hate big cases

    How thin is this back cover ?
    Is there anyway you can post a quick video via youtube

    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
