MoKo 360 Degree Rotating Case
I bought this case and another one from Amazon to try for my new iPad. After trying it out on a trip, I am keeping just this one. Although it isn't real leather, it is decent quality, relatively sturdy, and works very well. It's easy to change from landscape to portrait because the iPad snaps in and swivels, rather than having to pull it off from a Velcro attachment and reposition it, such as some other dual-angle cases. The iPad sits securely in the sleeve and the magnetic sleep/wake function works well; you just have to be sure that you hear the click when the corners line up. The stylus loop is convenient and a feature missing on most cases.
The three viewing angles are perfect for my needs, whether typing, reading, or watching movies. With stitched-on strips rather than grooves, my iPad stays at the desired angle. Another plus is the folio design. The case opens like a book and the iPad sleeve "folds" so the stand portion is inside the case, not formed by the case itself. Other folios flip around so that the part that sits on the surface is what covers the iPad screen and can get dust or dirt on it.
Why only four stars? I wish it had an elastic band or magnetic flap to close it more securely and that it came in more colors (like blue!). The purple is OK and different, just not my favorite.
That said, I've now been using it for almost three months and have not had any issues with it opening in a tote bag.
rooCase Convertible Premium Leather (red) Case with 24 Angle Adjustable Stand
This is a nice case, but not right for me. I ordered this case, along with the MoKo 360 reviewed above, to try on my new iPad after using the InCase folio for my original iPad. On the plus side, I liked the quality and sturdiness of the case, as well as the magnetic strap that closed it. The multiple viewing angles were nice, although I didn't find them necessary. Both the InCase and the case I kept only have three, and they work just fine for me.
The negatives for me: I didn't like the way the folio was designed; the cover folds back so that the inside of the case is what sits on the desk or other surface. I was concerned about scratches from dirt and such sticking to the microfiber lining. Others don't seem to mind this, so it may not be an issue. My preference is the folio style that folds the other way so that the stand's grooves are on the inside of the cover and the outside of the folio sits on the desk. (My other case and the RooCase Dual-Angle are this style) Also, the "spine" of the folio doesn't go all the way to the corners, leaving more of the iPad exposed.
Also, while the case was red leather, the lining was deep pink, and I disliked the discrepancy of pink on red. ;)http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/image...192250344_.gif
