    Got my el-cheapo leather iPad case....

    About 2 weeks ago I took a gamble with some excess paypal bucks and ordered this case **Brand New Apple iPad Leather Case with stand + Screen Protector** FREE SHIPPING !! . That's right $17.99 total, free shipping........

    I expected with free shipping for it to take a while to get. I was right, two weeks.

    I expected a cheap leather case. I was right!

    If I would have paid $60 plus $10 shipping my "review" would be that is is a POS and stay away....

    But did I say yet that it was $17.99 TOTAL including shipping?

    What you see in the picture on the site is not what you get. I have no idea what that case is... what I got was pretty nice LEATHER iPad case. No I am not going to upload a pic.... do what I did and order blind... for this kind of money you will smile at what you get....

    Fit is a little loose, but the holes are where they should be (always a good thing in life and love) and the magnetic closure is flawless. The pic at least implies a clasp... there is none. They at least imply in the blurb on the site that it folds for an ideal typing position.... not so much.

    What it does do is look really professional on the Pad. I would walk into a meeting with Obama and friends and hold my head high with this wrapped around my iPad. I think it looks more "business professional" than the Apple case (my day to day case).... The leather also feels nice. Of course it is leather from some milk cow from who knows where.... did I say yet that this little jewel is $17.99 INCLUDING shipping?

    THE BOTTOM LINE - If you are looking for a well made leather case, this is not the one for you. If you are looking for something professional looking to drag into a quick meeting at the office, this will work and ..... I have saved the best for last.... it is only $17.99!!!! oh, and that includes shipping!!!!

    Well I forgot to say that I never intended to use the 'Free" screen protector anyway, but it was so bent from shipping it would have been useless anyway....

    I also see that the free shipping is not available anymore.... not surprising really.... still a good value if you understand what you are getting, and the shipping is not too extreme to where you hang out....

    Really, it's a good deal.... But only if you understand what you are getting. I am very happy with it....it is actually beyond what I expected it to be.....

    Yep thatís a reasonable price, but of course as you say is blind buy witch can also be a bad surprise

    Pity you donít publish picís Ö

    Here in China you can find many type of case at really cheap price in wholesale market, most of the e-bayer buy from there Ö but the quality is what i will call so-so Ö but for the price you paid most of the buyer can be satisfied

    Personally i use a TPU case (kind of strong silicone) with one of my small stand witch is just perfect, and i need to go in meeting i just slide it my business cover without take out the skin Ö

    But i believe my needing is more complicated than the common people donít use the iPad for : private, working, and business tool Ö

    but yet have one things i miss is a stand for read e-book in the bed in full sleeping position Ö yet i didnít got the idea ( but that will come :-) soon )
