I know there are going to be as differing opinions on this as there are stars in the sky.
However, thought I would share what works for my taste and thought others can post what works for them with their iPad or iPad2.
Thought it could be a good tool to sift through for anyone interested.
Rules for this thread:
No one is right.
No one is wrong.
No insults because it is not what you like.
If you can't say something nice, don't.
No selling yours over mine or someone else's.
In other words, play nice in sandboxes.
I have now purchased 5 cases for my iPad2, looking constantly to find what would make ME happy.
I got the Leather folios and three different backs to go along with my Smart Cover.
I also bought the Zagg film for the back.
Lastly, I bought a leather Smart Cover.
Call it wasted money, call it whatever you want (but remember the rules so don't type it). For me, it's been fun.
Here is what I found I love.
1) Zagg film on back so I can place it on anything and not worry.
2) Leather Smart Cover as looks neat, very functional, and always easily remove it when using my iPad and hence enjoy the thin, light experience as it was meant to be.
3) Marware EcoEnvi. It houses my iPad, Smart Cover and all, in a very neat, professional looking folio for taking my iPad on the road with me as I travel for business, or even around the house when done using it.
4) Lastly, I travel carefree with protective insurance that is all risk.
