    If its the rainbow look your seeing thats actually just lighting reflecting off the protective screen. Fluorescent lighting will cause the swirly effect. As for heat issues, mines never gotten hot in my case and I use it non stop. I do think though having a zagg on while in the griffin case is a bit much.

    Have you dropped yours yet? My buddy asked how strong the case really was the other day and for some unknown reason i got brave enough to toss it to the ground. I immediately took my pad out to examine it and thank god there wasnt a single scratch or issue what so ever. Im really impressed with the survivor case thus far.

    Edit: wow i just realized i quoted an almost 7 month old post lol

    My Grove case with a bamboo back and a black leather cover with the Nebula design arrived about a week ago. Technically, it's my third Grove case.

    The first I bought over a year ago and I loved to death. When a stain on the front cover bothered me, I bought a new one but I hated the color of the London Tan leather and I was unenthusiastic about the new design, so I returned it for a complete refund. But when I dropped it and chipped and cracked the bamboo back cover a few months later, I decided to replace it with the only case I've ever liked.

    Aesthetically, I'm completely satisfied with the case, and the new design introduced for the iPad 3 that also fits the iPad 2 has won me over, but there are two problems related to its functionality that may disturb others:

    1. When the front cover is folded back so that it rests at on a slight incline on a surface, the Home button is on the left and that's slightly awkward for right-handed people like me. Since I rarely use a front cover as a stand, this is only a minor complaint.

    2. The magnet's not strong enough to shut the front cover completely, so the iPad lock/unlock feature is useless. I've adapted by switching to manual and set the iPad to automatically lock after 2 minutes for times I forget.

    The company is great and I'm sure I could return it for another given the nature of the second problem, but I've adapted to both functionality issues.

    Anyone suggest a nice authentic leather case/stand? I like the angles of zoogue, but I'm not liking that the Velcro is on the front which doesn't look good. I may have to settle for that one and seems like the best choice. I like my incipio, but quality is this cheap fabric material and gets dirty and won't last long. I'm not looking for a sleeve as I c there are plenty of nice leather ones. Thanks!

    I'm looking for a new case for my iPad2. I would wast a keyboard but also be able to fold that back and hold the pad in my hand. The closest I have found is the Kensington KeyFolio Pro2. I'm currently using a iFrogz; it's very nice but no built in keyboard.

    It's not just you. They really don't fit right. Think about it - they're meant to cover the entire iPad and are compatible with the iPad 2 and the iPad 3. But, the two versions are not equally thick. So of course the fit is going to be off for one of them.

    I gave up on the whole smart case idea and just go with a smart cover plus a Caudabe Shell hard clear cover on the back. Looks a heckuva lot better (in my opinion) since you can see the back of the iPad through the cover. And it's more protective since it's an actual hard back rather than the flimsy material used in the smart case.
