    Silicon or Hard Case

    I think either way, should be accompanied with the screen protector. But what you yall think about the type of case? Most people I know that have iphones prefer hard cases, but with IPAD, seems like the Silicon case will be easier to handle.

    What you think?

    Hard Case:

    NuGuard Hard Shell Clear Polycarbonate Case... (PADNUGSCLR) at OWC

    Silicon:

    NuGuard Soft Silicone Case for iPad - Blac... (PADNUGSILBK) at OWC

    i went with the hard clear plastic case for the body of the unit along with a Cimo anti glare matte screen protector unit with flip pocket case for stowage in the sling bag for travel

    i figure i got the best of all three words for protecting the ipad when traveling and inuse.

    Hmm.. I haven't decided yet but I'm leaning more towards a silicon style case.

    I clearly don't recommend you the Polycarbonate .. as in no time lot of scratch will appear, silicone is better, or even a decoration film

    I bought the oem case and I think it's very nice. One can cut the cover off if desired to make it an open design. The material is rubber like and smooth. I am very impress with the material and quality.

    Btw,I agree with silicon is a better option when compare to polycarbonate.

    When you’ve seen beyond yourself -
    Then you may find peace of mind, is waiting there -
    And the time will come when you see we’re all one,
    And life flows on within you and without you.

    there's a God shaped hole in all of us...
