    I really liked my Joy Factory case, but it did leave large areas of the sides exposed, and I got tired of co-workers teasing me over the giant "JOY" logo on the back corner. Fortunately I can sell it to a friend and buy this...

    CANVAS for iPad 2 - SwitchEasy

    The CoverBuddy covers the whole back accept for slits for the speaker and access points, it has better corner coverage, comes in clear or colors, and has no giant logo in the corner. And $3 S&H! Looks like the perfect clear, thin cover.

    The CoverBuddy came in today. This is the most impressive clear back cover I've seen. It feels more substantial without adding more weight since it wraps around and covers the entire back and sides of the ipad (except for access points, camera and speaker of course.)

    It offers much better coverage than my clear Joy cover did. The corners wrap around completely and the ends of the iPad 2 is no longer left exposed with no protection. The CoverBuddy is also more comfortable to hold while reading as it doesn't have those sharp edges where the corner protection ends abruptly on the Joy cover.

    And, no more giant white JOY logo on the back! :)

    The best back protection for iPad 2 is the Invisible SHIELD back coverage. No Doubt!

    IS gives nowhere near the protection that these clear covers give.

    i like the canvas for the ipad 2 a lot. I just bought a joyfactory before i realized this came out. I am still happy with the joy one i got, its very thing and i actually like the logo.

    Not sure why everyone is against logos on clear cases, thats like asking apple not to put their logo on their product. Its just what companies do. The only way i would not like it is if it covered up apples logo.

    Logos on clear cases are fine as far as I'm concerned. The logo on the back of the CoverBuddy is etched (no paint), small and tasteful. I just don't think a large white "JOY" on the iPad 2 was part of Jonathan Ive's planned esthetic. :)

    The joy logo doesn't really bother me, who looks at the back anyway??

    Thanks Tarkio, just ordered one. They are out of a few of the colors but I got a grey one which is the same color as my smart cover so it worked out :D I like this design because it actually protects the speaker area, a lot of the other ones I looked at had that whole area open.

    Oohhh...me like...

    Especially the clear one! I have a black TPU case that's similar (I got it for $15 shipped via eBay), though I really like clear for the back to show off the iPad's beautiful body. I have a navy blue leather Smart Cover.

    Back covers are must for ipads, recently i had came across the colored ones, dey were really attractive and were transparent, which i had bought was Targus polyurethane so bit more rigidity than silicon....anyways works great and solving the desired purpose..:)

    I've been waiting on my Enki case, but they are taking forever. If they don't ship by tomorrow I am cancelling it.

    That cover is similar to the Joy cover in that it leaves the entire end of the iPad and the speaker area exposed to dings. On 3G models that's the end that has the 3G antenna which is covered in plastic. Not a great place to leave unprotected from scratches. The CoverBuddy covers the whole area except for a tiny hole for the mic.
