    It's probably very unlikely but has anyone heard of a tight ipad case causing harm to the ipad itself?

    I just ordered this lovely case online(not a brand name kind) and the case fits incredibly tight on the ipad.

    Let me know.

    You're probably more likely to damage the case than the iPad...

    Yes I have a dented corner on an iPad 2 because of a tight fitting case. Thats why I refuse to put a iPad 2 case on my iPad 3.

    I think what you define as a tight fitting case will have an impact. It would have to be EXTREMELY bad for it to actually bend the aluminium.

    Mine is very tight itself being for an iPad 2, but not too tight, but snug to protect it.

    I'm using the marware iPad 2 case on my new iPad with no issues. It is a little tight but to me it seems perfect. If the case was looser I wouldn't feel safe so I'll gladly take the slightly tight fit over the alternative.

    My iPad 2 Speck SmartShell cases scuffed the aluminum on my new iPad. That's not Speck's fault, that's my fault for not waiting. Just a word of warning. They fit but were just too tight and caused the plastic to bow and flex scuffing the aluminum.

    That must have been a hard shell. I don't think an iPad 2 soft case that's somewhat tight for iPad 3 could dent the iPad. If an iPad 2 hard case, I wouldn't recommend an attempt to fit iPad 3.

    Correct silcone should be fine.
