    It seems like alot of these cases have issues, I want something lightweight, does protect front and back, and does have a typing and viewing position....does anyone have any recommendations? I'm starting to get tempted to get a back and a smart cover, as expensive as that seems...

    See my post above regarding the CIMO thin TPU case. Inexpensive but effective, looks good and works very well in conjunction with the Smart Cover. Good combo that provides protection without adding weight or bulk. Both of my iPads have them.

    it depends on your personal preference, there are too many cases to choose from, do your have any ideal on that already? what material? what color? what brand? or what styles? most of my friend use leather cases or keyboard cases... and i bought an iPad 3 keyboard case for my new device too.

    I've been into many main stream shops looking for a decent modern and Protective case to no avail yet. Although I did have this kind of problem when searching for a case/skin for my xbox 360slim. I ended up buying from slick skins.com if I remember right. There's a huge range at decent prices compared to main stream shops that are charging upto £60 for a shabby looking screen cover or a old school leather case. I'd try slick skins if I was anyone looking for a decent case :)

    Thanks for the info on that as well! I think it sounds like a good idea...I might consider getting a BodyGuardz Carbon Fiber Skin rather than the CIMO slim TPU...still trying to make up my mind. I couldnt find any slickskins.com, but I did find slick wraps.com, which have a nice looking gun metal skin (and other colors) but slighly more expensive at ~$30 for a skin...I do like the appearance of the GumDrop Drop Tech, while it is safe, it is not very versatile when typing/viewing.

    I just bought the OBD for iPad 3 and it's the best of all their previous iPad defender cases, it's actually a little slimmer. Feels a lot nicer too. I like that the rubber grip layer stays on nice and tight, the entire case fits perfectly. Yes it's pricey at $100 a pop, but it protects the iPad extremely well.

    I'd highly recommend the Belkin Snap shield, that's what I'm using. It's very thin, soft touch acrylic snap case. It adds a lot of grip and is smart-cover compatible. Here's some pic's:

    My OBD's magnetic feature actually does work. I found the it has to be put on a certain way. It works when the snap on case is snapped on with the "Otterbox" on top end -in portrait mode, (looks upside down), where the front facing camera is. If you snap it on with the "Otterbox" on the bottom end - where the home button is, it doesn't shut it off. I tested it several times and it always shut the screen off when the "Otterbox" was on the top end of the screen.
