    I saw the Griffin Elan Folio Slim today which has the look I want, but the reviews I've seen indicate that it has poor build quality and loosens/frays quickly. Anyone know of cases that are similar to the Griffin Elan Folio Slim and have good reviews?

    Thanks

    I've found that the magnets are not strong enough to turn off the New iPad.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I went ahead and ordered the Yoobao Executive Leather. There is a new revision for the iPad 3 and people have mentioned in other threads that the auto sleep/wake works properly.

    EDIT: MacRumors is censoring the domain in my link for some reason. Replace the asterisks with "kevikev"

    Been using the Yoobao for about a week now and it's great. Thanks again everyone for the suggestions.

    If you decide to get it, make sure you get the iPad 3 version as there are quite a few different revisions that look similar.

    I have the belkin, its not that thin because it's one of those folios with an adjustable stand built in, which is good if you want that feature.
    but returning mines because automatic on/off is not working despite advertising as such.

    I really like the Poetic Strapback. It is solid, doesn't add much bulk, looks good, and I love the different viewing angles. I had the Poetic hard back, but didn't like the way the cover slid too much activating the screen.
