    Here are pictures and thoughts of the incase convertible book jacket knockoff I got off eBay for about $15. I purchased it April 30 and got it May 17. I wish I had the actual incase product to set it side by side but the knockoff fares alright from what I've seen on youtube and other reviews of the incase.

    After using it for a few days I can say that the case isn't as sturdy as it was the day I got it and only locks into one position now, leaving the other two pretty much useless. I have to say that it does hold up really well in the first position for typing and browsing. I also like to fold the cover back so the iPad is at a slight incline for typing much like the official Apple case. Also, the iPad shifts around so it doesn't line up with the port cutouts but I'm able to charge it just fine after adjusting the iPad. I've read similar observations from a few reviews of the actual incase book jacket (sturdiness, cutouts) so I'm glad I didn't pay the $60 for the logo. For the money, I'm definitely satisfied with this eBay purchase but it won't be my last case!

    .....looks exactly like the Incase minus the logos and pattern in the grey padding.

    Yeah I bought one of these off ebay too but havent received it yet
    After looking at your pics, im glad I didnt pay more than $6 for it lol
    Actually the shipping was more than the item itself :p

    The stitching doesnt look that great, the crease in the cover isnt uniform, cutouts not centered, frame around the screen not flat, etc, etc

    Thank you very much for the pics and review
