    I agree. It is nice and I liked the transparent cover as well. I just think it's a little pricey when you consider we already paid $39.99 for the smart cover :(

    I have just gotten used to the fact that the iPad is one big money pit. But I love it.
    $850 for the iPad 2
    $40 for the smart cover
    $40 for the smart cover enhancer
    $40 for the HDMI adapter
    $30 for the camera adapter
    $50 for the car mount
    Then there is the software side of things
    $20 for a data plan
    $200 worth of "must have apps"
    And I don't even want to get started listing iTunes movies, TV shows and music.
    But you know, I'm enjoying all thoroughly.

    I see a lot of problems with this case. The screen protector does not seem to want to lay completely flat and that is evident on several spots in that video. The very exposed top and bottom edges is also something I don't particularly like. It has potential but I still think that a better route is to find an "enhancer" case for the back of the iPad which works with the Apple Smart Cover which to me is the absolute perfect companion to the iPad 2.

    I just ordered Aviiq's, smart cover compatible, Smart Case for iPad 2. I liked that the colors matched the smart covers. Unfortunately, there's a wait, but they are offering free shipping and 20% off via code found on their FB page. 

    No experience with these but they look pretty good and they sure give you a lot for you money.

    Thanks for the reality jolt!

    I thought about the tons of apps I got for my iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, the HDMI adapter, iPad sleeve, iPhone and iPod Touch cases, styli and the list goes on.
    You are so right and helped me put things into perspective ;) That said . . . . I just ordered Aviiq's smart cover back (thanks to LolaAM for the FB code). Although I would have preferred letting the Apple logo shine through a transparent back but I also like the color matching with the Aviiq.

    I totally agree with everything you said and, now, have no idea why I was squabbling in the first place :p

    I really like the CEO hybrid from Marware. That case seems to be the coolest folio case out right now with all of the features you could want.

    I'm deciding between that one and this one below. Itcomes with a screen shield. it's a little thicker but keeps the iPad protected as opposed to having to unsnap with the Marware:

    I think the features are nice but I would like to see how much weight it adds. Seems kinda bulky. Its pretty cool. I can see why you are debating between the two. I am going with the Marware as I already bought it. I think it won't be so heavy or bulky. Thanks for the video link. I am going to search for one on the Marware CEO hybrid case. Let me know what you decide and how you like it. Check out my post on are you addicted to buying iPad cases.

    I just picked this Scosche foldIO P2 off of eBay, for a very decent price. It is the Carbon Fiber Texture model. It will keep me covered until I decide if I really need something with a built in keyboard or just a very good protective cover.. It has a suede interior lining, three-position landscape viewing, ultra low-profile design, open access to all connections and controls.

    I'm pre ordering otterbox off eBay for $6 off retail price. I got some coupons for paypal and eBay that need using. I'm sad that they only have black right now but I'm excited cuz it's only gonna cost me 17 bucks after my gift cards and coupons. So excited. I think it's gonna be a couple weeks before they release, but I've been waiting forever for iPad 2 already.

    The one thing I found about the folio cases is that the cut on the case to support the iPad on the stand are usually too shallow and the pad falls when touched.

    Has anyone bought the case from Zoogue? I have been seriously considering it, but would like to hear others opinions?

    It looks very promising with all the features. I wonder how much lint would get attached to all that Velcro. Very versatile.

    This is why I'm really interested in SwitchEasy Canvas... it has these plastic pieces to keep it more steady, it def adds a bit bulk though.
