    There are so many to choose from, I can't decide! I review a fair amount of cases for TiPb, but I am curious as to what the TiPb community is using?

    I love my Speck SeeThru. It has a rubber ring on the back that keeps the iPad sitting flat and doesn't allow it to slide around to much. Plus when you are holding it, the rubber ring acts like a finger support to give you more grip.

    The Apple case by a long-shot. It is the leanest, multi-function case available for the iPad. However, it is a PIA to keep clean (that's why I have huggies baby wipes handy ).

    I have also owned:

    Yoobao portfolio case R2 : Nice leather case - only downside is the leather around the bezel, I found it to be a little too intrusive.

    EDIT: Yoobao now has several different revisions out now. If you are interested in a tri-function (Flip case, portrait stand, and typing angle) case, take a look Here

    Cyberacoustics IC-1000BK - Leather iPad case - A real nice case with minimal bezel interference. It uses 4 hard plastic clips to hold the iPad in place. Leather is a bit thick but feels nice.

    Marware SportShell Convertible - Meh

    I have the Incase Convertible Book Jacket. What I liked is it has good protection not only in the front but also in the back. There's about a half inch of material each side. I managed to get it for 10% off so it was a no-brained at the time I purchased the iPad.

    The Speck Candyshell is my favorite. Very sturdy, yet lightweight, and the ability to use the apple iPad dock with it still on is a huge plus.

    Dodocase is by far my favorite. It took awhile to get here, but it is unlike anything else.

    Just ordered a blue iLuv silicone skin. Currently have a leather book-type case, but find it too bulky.

    I currently only have the Apple case and I like it a lot. I do wish it would stand up on uneven surfaces better (like a bed), any recommendations for that?

    Apple Case it still best for me. Simple and sleek but serves the purpose.

    The Apple case is THE case. I plan to get an Otterbox for protection while biking.

    I just got the Incase Convertible Book Jacket and like it. Great for traveling. Probably will take it off while Im at home tho. Much more durable than the Apple one. I guess it depends on how you use your ipad. I personally only use it at home, or while im on an airplane (or vacation).

    I bought a $5 TPU case from Amazon, smokey black in color. It will protect against small drops and scratches, it light weight, and looks good.

    I like it because it is much less bulky than my previous case.

    It's sort of like this one - Amazon.com: CTCstore Black Wave Premium Crystal TPU Silicone Skin Case for Apple iPad 3G ...: Electronics

    Dodocase rocks! Custom made by hand (thats why it takes so long). Durable, everything fits tight with play through openings. It resembles a Moleskin Binder of some type and looks professional. When closed so it has that "doesn't look like an iPad in a case" feeling so thieves might pass it by on first look.

    Secondarily, the Apple iPad case is very good, if not as attractive as the DodoCase.

    I had the apple case from day one but it didn't offer great protection, was a dust magnet, & looked cheap. Not to mention a little expensive too. I just recently purchased a Marware Eco-Vue from amazon.com & love it. It looks great, offers good protection, has three great options to raise the ipad so it's not lying flat. I highly recommend.

    I also have had the Apple case from day one. It is nice but does not offer great protection and it scuffs up way too much. It is really hard to keep clean.

    I have had the Apple case longer than I have had the iPad. Have never used it.

    I have converted a lot of old cases for use with my iPad by using Velcro. I prefer these for aesthetics as well as for protection.

    I'm in the same boat Chad.

    So many cases but can't seem to make up my mind of what I want/is the best option.
