    I like it :)

    Do you have a picture of the removable screen protector? Also, how thick does the iPad get when this is installed? 1.5x? Double?

    The iPad is only a little thicker then it is without a case, the cover is very thin, you can see thru it. It's designed to hook tot he corners of the case and sits flush with the case when installed

    Here's the case with the cover next to it, you can see thru the cover because it's very thin

    I just received the Mareware Eco-View case yesterday. I wanted something that worked like the Apple case but not as flimsy. So far I like it a lot. My iPad fits well and the case appears sturdy and sound. The typing stand is very good with no issues.

    The only concern I have is that the flap that tucks the unit into the case looks like it could come out if you turn the unit upside down and shake - although I haven't tested. I might put some very thin velcro on the back of the tab for support.

    When I first bought my iPad I thought I would only want to carry / hold it without any major case - perhaps just a skin. But I think I'm re-thinking that preference as I actually like the extra book-like bulk of this case. It does appear to do a good job protecting the screen - which is good since I've decided against a screen protector.

    That one looks pretty good, David. I guess you can prop it up in your lap using the flap?

    My 3G came out of the box and immediately into the apple case on 4/30 launch day and hasn't been taken out since. Absolutely no heating issues at all. I don't know how apple did it but it runs for hours in the case and it doesn't even feel warm.

    I'll have to second everything David said about the Eco Vue from Marware. I've had mine for a week or two, and couldn't be happier with it.

    Btw I just did the shake test....and yeah the little leather flap won't hold your iPad in if shaken. The Velcro idea is a good idea. I'll have to pick some up tomorrow.

    I think I have a solution. I tried the velcro - slide both sides of a velcro connection behind the top of the unit - it made it stick out too far - I'm afraid it might cause some damage. So I thought about putting some Velcro at the bottom - cut thin 1/4" strips. Then it hit me - I pulled out a roll of Scotch double sided tape - drew a 1 1/2 inch strip and attached it to the side of the strap that sits against the back of my iPad. Passes the upside down shake test and feels quite firm.

    The way I figure it - I took my iPad out of my Apple case about once every 3 days to do a complete screen cleaning - when I do the same for the Mareware case, if I need a new piece of tape I'll get one.

    If anyone figures out a better solution let us know [​IMG]
