I will vouch for what AG is saying. I have had these on a few devices and they are certainly more than a sticker. That's why I really like the carbon fiber skins. It's an actual weave to it, so it in my opinion adds some grip to the ipad and feels really nice in your hand. Also no fingerprints.

Also not all companies, but most all of them are using 3M (skinomi included) so it's a high quality product that will last.
In my next post I'll throw up a few pics of the phantomskinz.com version.
Also as mentioned, the smart cover still works with these skins. You lose a little bit of magnet strength, but nothing truly noticeable.
Also forgot to ever tell you Anon_Guy, that looks really nice on your ipad.
Here's just a few pics of the phantomskinz version. Looking at all of them, I've come to the conclusion I think they're all almost identical in quality and feel. I think it really comes down to what kind of design you want on the edge coverage. That's where each company seems to be a little different, but other than that I really think they're all pretty much identical in quality (I'm not talking about no name companies, I'm talking about Skinomi, icarbons, Phantomskinz etc.)
Here they are:
Has anyone used the slick wraps version?
At first glance it looked like a formed shell, but on closer look it seems to be a thin, self adhesive film. I wonder if it protects the corners also? I checked out their website via Google and for $34 you also get a display thin film. Cost wise this is the best deal I've seen so far. It also has all the cutouts to work with the Smart Cover that provides magnetic on/off and a triangular stand ... one position of typing, the other for hands free viewing.
