I just received the Macally Slim Folio from Amazon today, and here's a quick review and several pics. My first impression is that I really like this folio case. I also have the STM Grip which I also like, but I thought I would order this Macally case and try it. Here are the pros of this case: 1) It's very light and slim. I don't think it weighs any more than the STM Grip. 2) The plastic clips hold the iPad in place very well. It's easy to insert and remove the iPad, but I don't think there's much chance of it coming out in a drop. This case has very good fit. 3) I like the look and feel of this case. I ordered the blue/gray color. It has a brushed finish on the outside that feels nice but has pretty good grip when carrying. The inside lining is finished with a soft material that is very grippy, which I like when holding it book-style for reading. The STM Grip's inside lining is soft but not very grippy, and it's harder to hold for longer periods book-style. 4) I really like the way this case cover folds underneath. It folds flat against the back, but it has a small spine like a real book that is very comfortable to hold. 5) The latch on the cover is very secure. There's not much danger of it coming open in a drop. This case has very good edge protection all around, as you can tell from the pics. 6) The viewing position works OK. There's just one crease inside the cover for the iPad to rest in, but it will also stay put at some other angles. I think with use that it will loosen up and go lower into more of a typing position. The clips to release the iPad edge work easily, but are secure when holding it. The only minor cons as of now: 1) The plastic latch or catch on the cover fits tightly enough that I'm going to watch and see if there is any scratching of the iPad edge. I think it will probably loosen a little with use and hopefully be just about right in tightness. 2) There's not enough clearance beside the bottom clip for the camera connector kit to fit, but many other cases have this issue as well. That can be solved with a dock extender cable or adapter. I think this case may replace the STM Grip for me. I like the look and light weight of the Grip, but I'm not crazy about the all-plastic case, and the hinge for the viewing/typing props on the back causes it to rock and not set totally flat on a table when closed. The Macally Slim Folio has a better/satisfying feel when picking it up and laying it down. There are more pics in the next two posts.
