    I use a Dodocase with a Zagg shield. I like them both, but sometimes I think about removing the shield.
    The case is good and light enough to carry around. I don't have any problems with it falling out.

    I have a skin from Skin-it.com on the back and front of my ipad2. I use a soft-rubberized ipad2 case with 2 pockets on the front from Office Depot. I have the Motorola wrap-around-bluetooth earphones/headset. I use a Griffin ipad stand for reading. And my favorite accessory is my Ayl stylus.

    Cool!!! How does the stylus work?? Like the old Palm Pilot one? Does anyone remember having to learn all of those alpha symbols, squiggles, and swirls to write on it??

    I've used the SmartCover since day one. From today, though, this is customized to become a true one-of-a-kind dito. And I, most definitely, think it's absolutely marvelous!

    I use a Smart cover with front and back shields. At least I did, until today. The back shield is perfectly fine but the screen shield was starting to look tacky and peeling round the edges. So I took it off. Bearing in mind I had it on from the moment of purchase, I knew no different. But oh my gosh what a difference it makes not having it on! The screen was fine before, but is now even more responsive to touch and feels so much better than the shield. I'm going to risk it and not put one back on. It is making me worry a bit, but it feels amazing!

    Does anyone have a complaints email address for apple? I have a cover which I bought at the Apple store at the same time as my iPad 2 a few months back. I have just noticed that the metal bar which locks onto the side of the pad has developed rust spots. These have transferred to the pad itself and are impossible to remove. I am NOT happy. Having bought a product intended to protect the pad it seems to be damaging it even if only cosmetically. I have never got water on the pad. Keep it in in my briefcase or on my desk so have not abused it so am bemused as to why this should happen. Anyone else had similar problems?

    My iPad was getting fluffy spots on its screen so had to get him a front cover.

    Picked a Speck FitFolio and it's not bad for a bookcase type case. Overall profile still isn't too bulky.

    Ya know - Ive been fighting myself on whether or not to bother with a screen protector. They seem hit or miss as far as longevity, they potentially dull the screen or take some vibrancy away, and installation has caused a few people to come up with new swear words. :D The way I see it is this: The screen was made to be touched and therefore the regular act of touching it via while using it wont probably do any damage. Ive only had my ipad 2 for a couple days but wiping off fingerprints has been easy. I just use the micro cloth I use on telescope lenses. No solvents - just some "breath" or a dab or two of lukewarm water does the trick.

    I dont see how the screen can get scratched during normal use. If it takes a fall and lands the wrong way - the screen will still crack regardless if a layer of film is over it. I suppose if someone with wicked nails dug in they could scratch it but thats an "edge" test case. Otherwise, ffor now, I'll just go with being careful and doing regular, gentle cleanings.

    I have to agree here. I've never had a screen protector on my iPad (almost a year) and I don't have a single scratch. I'm just careful with it. I used to use a micro fiber cloth that came with my Vizio TV, then I found an Apple micro fiber cloth at the factory store.

    My iPhone4 on the other hand is pretty hammered.
