    Default Just got an ipad 2 and I hate the case...

    My ipad 1 was stolen, so I just bought an ipad 2. The ipad is great, however, Apple's magnet case is a joke! I had the OEM black Apple case for the ipad 1, and it was great.
    However, this new one is clumsy it moves around too much, and it doesn't protect the back of the ipad, which is something that Apple doesn't comprehend very well. Not everyone treats their devices like a newborn baby. (Same for iphone4 with glass back) It would be nice to have a case that not only protected the screen, but also protected the whole device.

    I know there are a zillion cases out there. I am looking for a recommendation for a similar low profile style case to Apple's ipad 1 case.
    Any suggestions?

    The Speck PixelSkin HD Wrap case for iPad 2 is a nice case. It offers great protection for a low profile type case. Right now it's available in 4 colors. http://forums.imore.com/e?link=http%...token=u4DX2n4c

    I'm using the Belkin Folio case on my iPad 2. Belkin makes some really nice cases that hold up well over time.

    +1 on this case. I Ordered it from Amazon $24 & absolutely love it! It offers great protection for entire iPad including the screen. It slim enough that it's not cumbersome & works similar to the smart cover so it offers the keyboard stand & video viewing stand.

    Does anyone have a link to the Belkin Folio case?

    I am going to be getting an iPad 2 very soon and would like a easy, protective carrying case so I can take the thing with me in the car while I am traveling.

    You can always pick one up and use as a back up case.

    I bought a Marware CEO and love it. It's not cheap but I have been very happy with it. So far the durability has been good and save the tablet from a nasty fall on a strip of gravel.

    Why don't they make those cases for the regular iPhone? Hmmm

    IMHO, the screen on the iPhone is too small to even make something like that for it.

    One of my favorite cases is definitely the targus 360 rotating case. It's great, stands in portrait and landscape, plus the circle in the back shows off the nice apple. Which was what apple wanted to show off with the smart cover

    Definitely the tarsus 360 rotating case. It stands in both portrait and landscape, protects front and back, and also shows off the apple through a circular window. Which was what apple had in mind with the smart cover.

    I just purchased the smart cover + the Belkin snap shield to protect the back. It has a very nice feel and seems to do the trick. I think the two are a very nice combo.

    I just got the Speck PixelSkin HD case and it's great, thin, feels good in your hands. The only downside is that it lacks the ability to put my IPad to sleep or wake it back up but other than that is very nice and quite functional. I bought mine off of Amazon for 27$

    I have the Cyber Acoustics IC-1002BK and absolutely love it. It has a simple portfolio look and feel. The quality is amazing and the price is not bad either. Do a search and watch some of the videos out for it on YouTube or go to their website.
