I decided to purchase an Incase protective grip for my Ipad Incase Protective Cover Grip iPad Black Part Number:H0969ZM/A Warranty: 1 year from date of purchase The grip makes it much easier to hold in your hands, especially over longer periods of time. It also acts as a slip resistant surface so as not to fall out of your hands. The case fits snug, though there is some give around the corners and sometimes when you take it out of the bag if you aren't careful and you pull on the grip at the edges it seems to want to come off. The good news is that covers fits around all the connections and serial port perfectly. I have no problem syncing the device or easily accessing the volume. Anybody else bought a grip or protective cover for the Ipad.
