I'm on my second iPad. When carrying it I'm over cautious. I haven't dropped either-yet. Now my 4S is a different story, thank goodness for OtterBox.

Though the thought of an electronic device so strong that it would dent the concrete is pretty appealing :p

Mine fell yesterday onto the floor, I now have a small crack in the glass in the top left of the bezel. It was in a targus viewscape but was open.

Dropped mine two days ago in the bathroom, while waiting for my Joy Factory case to arrive :( Corners were bent slightly.

yep we all have dropped ours. Now all three are in cases.
No complaints about cases.

I have never dropped my iPad 2 or 3 but like they say anything can happen and it did with my iPad 2. Regardless how careful you are the unexpected can occur !

I was walking to my front door in which I have a screen glass door and the wooden door with the lock. I was attempting to get into my house when a gust of wind come out of nowhere and slammed the screen door into my iPad. It hit the corner of the device and sure enough there was a nice dent and a small crack in the glass.

I dropped it about 3 weeks ago. Not far, just onto the countertop. Actually the smart cover came loose, which is what caused me to drop it.

Fortunately, I have insurance and purchase protection from my American Express Card. I was able to have the screen replaced for no charge.

Sadly, a similar thing happened within my first month of iPad 2 ownership as well. I guess the first month is cursed for me. :mad:

Mine has dropped once from the bathroom sink counter onto the tile floor. It was in a cheap $5 case from ebay and the impact actually sliced through the case and left a scratch on the top left corner of the aluminum. Luckily there is no big dent and you can't even tell from the front/screen view. Lesson learned, though.. waiting for my speck case in the mail.

Biggest FEAR ever. Seriously.

Nothing like paying $800 for a 64gb iPad only to have it destroyed in a swift second.

I am definitely buying a case when it gets here tomorrow. (Can't wait!)

I am very careful with my iPad with no glass protection and case cover. I don't trust kids or adult use my iPad. I also cared my iPhone 4s with case. so far both have have not dropped on the floor. I recommend carpet. :)
