    Is the bottom lip flimsy?

    Do they make one that completely covers the back? I don't plan on using a smart cover, and would like more protection.

    There are two versions. I got the one with the anchors, it's a hard shell and I'm loving it ( http://amzn.to/1aHXRge )

    This is the soft (flimsy) version http://amzn.to/1giMdOH

    I have the soft one and its pretty good. Great when you consider the price. My ipad already took a 4 ft drop and survived.

    Ill probably grab a hard one considering its cheap too.

    Just got mine today. Cheap packaging for a great case. Much preferred over the Belkin. Love it. Snap case with Smart Cover lock.

    I was swapping it out with my DOLCE case last night to snap some photos of it for a review, and I noticed just a few odd black specks in the top right of the case. I shot i-BLASON an email and they sent me a replacement with tracking number this morning. That company is A-OK in my book!

    Just got mine.

    The back is floppy and loose. There is a gap between the case and iPad back that sags.

    Also a small rough spot on the side for the smart over cutout.

    Clarity is beautiful. Fit is otherwise good. Good button tactile feedback.

    Slight movement on edges in normal use. Could be a problem down the line if dust and debris gets between the case and the iPad. Might eventually cause scratches.

    Going to exchange once to see if it is just a lemon. Otherwise i love this case.

    My soft case covers 4 holes on the speaker grill -- two on each side. Anyone else see this? What bugs me most is that the support is non-existent.

    He didn't post any, hence the sarcastic "nice pics" post.

    I don't have holes in the case. On mine, the case is covering 2 speakers holes on each side. Didn't even notice until you pointed it out.

    Since the gel case is clear, it magnifies the holes so it could be mistaken for holes in the case itself.

    It's the 2 holes on each side of the lightening port.

    Ah, so it's the same for you. I'll probably return mine for a refund because I'm miffed at i-Blason support -- they can't be bothered to respond to emails or inquiries after sales.

    Hope this shows the gap in the back. The blue painters tape is to protect my ipad from the sharp nub on the case.
