    I won an iPad from a work contest (yeah, I work at a pretty cool place). So now I need a case for it. I have read so many case posts on this forum that my eyes are crossed. I wanted to toss out some uses and hopefully you experts with the experience can help me narroe things down.

    I will be using the iPad at work and home. So it means it will be tossed into a laptop backpack with my laptop on my way to and from the office. At the office I will be taking it to meetings and want it to incorporate a stand to keep it on my desk. At home, I have a 4 year old who likes to use it, so some drop protection would be awesome.

    I can expense up to $50 for it, so i'd be looking for cases under that amount.

    My first thought was the Otterbox Defender, but that may be a bit much protection/bulk. Still trying to decide and am open to your suggestions.

    I use the defender everyday for work. I think it's one of the best protected cases with a stand built in. But might be a bit clunky/rugged for suit & tie presentations....

    A four year old, equals Otter Box Defender, of course nothing is completely safe around a child, but at least the iPad has a chance with the Defender.

    They can be gotten for ~$50 and free shipping.

    There are 3 I am considering to the Otterbox - The Zoogue, Targus Truss or Cyber Accoustics' case.

    Anyone have thoughts on these? I like the Cyber Accoustics case because it seems easy to get the iPad out and the Zoogue I like the various mouting angles, but it seems much less attractive.

    For those who fly, there is a new Ipad case that straps to your leg. Search "ipad kneeboards"

    I was in the exact same dilema between the Cyber Acoustics and the ZooGue case. I watched a review of the Cyber Acoustics on youtube and I ended up asking the reviewer, Larry Greenberg which case he thought was of nicer quality. I figured since he has had nearly every case out there pass through his hands, he would have a good opinion. He said that the Cyber Acoustic case was of nicer quality and that he would suggest that case over the ZooGue however he said that the ZooGue was a very nice case if you could get past the looks. I'm thinking he must have only seen the older ZooGue case because the video review above of the version 2, looks great in my opinion. I ended up ordering the Cyber Acoustics case but after seeing that video above, I will be ordering a ZooGue case as well in the near future.
