    Wow that actually looks pretty nice and better than the Luvvitt case since its a hard one. I emailed them to ask if it really is in stock and ready to ship out, if it is I'll get one. I don't like how sometimes you order a case and are waiting weeks before it goes out. Has anybody ordered from them before and got their order in a decent amount of time?

    I don't think this one allows you to use a Smart Cover as well. I think they have another version that does. On Amazon's UK site they advertise two different ones, one costing a bit more. The cheaper one in stock now seems like it doesn't support the Smart Cover where as the more expensive one due to be released in about a week does from what I can tell

    I got my Boxwave in today and am loving it. Very thin and lightweight while offering some decent protection. No branding at all just crystal clear see through. The cutouts are dead on with everything easily accessible. 9/10

    Mines coming today... I'm used to the air jacket, so we'll see how this turns out.

    Either way there's no way it can be worse than the Luvvitt case. :mad:

    Case is a winner...great fit, and thin and light as power support air jacket at less than half the price...

    Only thing is that top and bottom bezels are left eclosed.

    Would buy again, and am not planning to get air jacket at this point because I like case so much...

    Do you mind posting some pictures of it?

    Or anyone else for that matter, i have a gold iPad do not want to ruin the aesthetics of it.

    I wish someone created a 0.3mm clear case that is compatible with the Smart Cover.

    Is there any kind of branding on this case?
    Looking at the photos on the Amazon website, it shows "Boxwave" branding on the back of the case, I would much prefer there to be no branding at all

    And yes, photos of people who have received this case would be nice :)

    Yup. Pictures please. Especially with a smart case on - preferably a red one.

    My big concern with this case is that it's plastic and so may scratch the back of the ipad.

    I had something similar for my iPhone 4 and it did get scratched a little.

    If you want the best light case on the market get a power support air jacket... They are smart case compatible also, and about .5mm thin

    Yes, but it'll be out by the holiday. Honestly the box wave is good enough for me. I'll be skipping the air jacket this time. Never thought I'd say that :p

    Hi mate,

    Thanks for the pics. It does look like a very nice case. I'm just a little concerned about how much of a gap is on the bottom around the speakers and charger. Is the top fully covered? Or same amount uncovered?

    It's going to be a family ipad so will need maximum protection from the little brats.

    Also how did you get your case so soon? Or have they officially been released now?

    Same amount is uncovered as the bottom... This is the box wave. They are on Amazon for a great price.

    Sorry not really good regards uploading pictures. I see someone else has posted some already though. The case is open on the top and back although it's not something that will be an issue for me. My main concern was the back as I wanted to prevent it from getting scuffs and scratches. The case itself has not scratched yet but then I've not had the opportunity to place it on hard surfaces yet. That said I rather the case get scratched then the iPad.

    Thanks lads for the replies and pictures.

    Decisions decisions.... If it wasn't for having to share the ipad with my 2 brats I'd have bought the Boxwave by now.

    I saw the price of the power support air jacket for air 1-£45! Then add the smart cover at £35. That's almost a 1/4 of the price of my ipad. lol!

    Fortunately for me I still have the Smart Cover from my iPad Air which I sold when I replaced it with the iPad Air 2. In fact I have two of the red smart covers for the iPad Air, one still brand new and in it's packaging.

    When I preordered my iPad Air last year I also ordered the red Smart Cover but a week after my iPad Air showed up UK Mail hadn't delivered my Smart Cover so I called Apple to complain and they sent me another one. About three weeks later the one I ordered originally showed up too. I was going to sell it but have hung on to it as a replacement. The one I use currently is still in pretty good condition though.
