Got this in today as I had one on my ipad3 and in the 9 months I used it everyday - it held up great - polycarb, completely clear and a few neat features for about $13. It has a "scoop" around the speaker that send the sound straight at you if you are watching a movie without earplugs and it works. It also locks the smartcover on, so it cant come loose. Sits below face so the smartcover lays flat. I recommend this back. icarbons titanium CF underneath for a nice underglass look.
