    Have you ever dropped your iPad?

    I just did! It is in a case but of course it landed on the end. On hardwood floor no less.

    It was extremely loud. It kicked right on and appears to be ok. I have been so careful ~ inevitable, I guess. I think I have had it two months tomorrow.

    Have you dropped yours? My friend's sister in law, dropped hers in the tub when she was getting a pedicure.

    I have not heard the status but I'm thinking it's toast!

    Been lucky... so far! (knock wood)

    But I did almost leave mine at work yesterday! It was a really long day and I just wanted to get out to my car and get home when one of my co-workers comes running down the hall waving my iPad in the air and yelling, "Hey Scott, what's your screen unlock password?"

    Mine took a tumble early in our vacation back in July. I was walking down the stairs, the corner of the iPad hit the wall and knocked the iPad out of my hands. It went cartwheeling down a full flight of wooden stairs and then took a couple cartwheels on the wood floors before it stopped.

    Luckily, the iPad sustained zero damage. It was in its Hard Candy Sleek skin case.

    And that was after my husband stepped on it and his shoe scuffed the InvisibleShield screen protector so hard that he made a ridge and left 6 huge air bubbles. Luckily, I manged to get most of the bubbles fixed and then time finished the rest...it self healed after a couple days.

    Needless to say, the iPad had a rough vacation. So did my heart when those incidents happened!

    Glad yours is okay!

    My little sister once dropped it from the second floor(landed on the back), I ran fast to check it out. I was amazed how it didn't get effected at all! But then again after thinking I realized that it's didn't get effected because it was covered with the silicon case. I wonder if it would of been the same if it was covered with the Eco Vue case.

    She's 9 years old, I didn't yell at her, I just didn't let her play with it anymore. And that basically made her sad anyway.

    I cringe every-time I see someone mentioned they dropped their iPad. The worse fall mine has seen was about 2 feet, and it landed on my Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard. Fortunately, neither the iPad or the keyboard suffered.

    I would recommend that everyone get a case for their iPad. I have a Street Skin which makes it easier to hold and will protect it somewhat. Better yet might be one of those Otterboxes, but they are really expensive.
