    Very cool looking, but really, really hard to get on! Once on, it fits like a glove giving a good grip and adds almost no extra thickness. Thanks CIMO!:)
    Two things, and I know that CIMO had no real ipad to make the mold from, the alignment of the applelogo/wifi in the back is "slightly off" and the headphone port could use a millimeter extra space to allow the headphones to be plugged in without force. But that might just be me being a little OCD! lol!

    Nice!

    Regarding the headphone jack. I have the same thing on the Apple cover. The hole needs to be just a tiny bit larger or aligned better.

    I ordered the Silicon version of their case so I'll be able to do a review soon too :)

    Thanks Max for the review and pics.

    I have the TPU cases and would not buy another one based on fit (my original post was edited now that I have tried other cases with a perfect fit). I had to make some minor adjustments because the openings did not match up properly. I also have the screen protector which works very well. Highly recommend the protector. It just takes more patience to skillfully work out the bubbles on a device of this size.

    I'll check out other accessories as they become available. A girl can never have too many accessories, ya know!

    Has anybody come across a nice silicon/rubber case that fits snug and aligns perfectly with all the buttons and headphone jack?

    Just got my contest case from cimo too. Very nice-I got the same one as Max, so nothing new to report, but I do recommend the case... Also, it fits nicely in my belkin vie case with the cimo on, so that is a big plus.

    Got the exact one as well. It is a pain to get on, and I cannot plug in my dock connector through the cut-out, I end up pulling the case partially off to plug in. Solid feel, and it keeps the iPad nice and compact. Not so worried about it slipping out of my hands. I may order the silicone one next, for the price, you can't beat it.

    Just got today my black flip case from CIMO and it looks great and the fit is snug and still can get to all the buttons.

    Thanks CIMO,

    I ordered this case on Saturday and it arrived today. Quick shipping!

    I like the feel of the case so far, definitely a lot better for handling than the naked iPad case.

    The only complaints I have so far are with the alignment of some of the hole placements, they seem to be off. The case fits REALLY tight and will definitely not fall off which is a good thing.

    you have sold me with your pictures. I am just waiting to hear Cimo corrects the hole alignment issue.
