    edit (2): SCROLL DOWN FOR REHOSTED IMAGES.

    edit: I purposely linked the photos since they were too big. don't feel like resizing them. maybe i'll do it if i have time tonight after work.

    I personally love this case. I got it off Amazon for $37 new with free shipping. I took plenty of pictures for you guys. Enjoy!

    Here it is: (edit: the bumpiness is the reflection of my stucco ceiling)

    Placed next to naked iPad for thickness comparison. Keep in mind that a good portion of the thickness is due to the screen overlap:

    Another angle:

    Screen overlap:

    Plastic casing inside:

    Plastic casing outside:

    Rear cover outside:

    Rear cover inside:

    Rubber casing inside:

    Rubber casing outside:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1239.jpg

    Case altogether:

    Installation...

    Rubber casing first. Top first:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1245.jpg

    Then bottom:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1246.jpg

    Plastic casing next. Bottom first:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1247.jpg

    Sides next:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1248.jpg

    Top last. This part is the toughest part. There's a little nub from the rubber casing that has to go through a hole in the plastic casing:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1249.jpg

    Put through:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1250.jpg

    This is the lock button:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1251.jpg

    Speakers on bottom:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1230.jpg

    Volume rockers and orientation lock switch:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1257.jpg

    Headphone input and mic closed:
    http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f318/ivanmarkchang/IMG_1258.jpg

    Headphone input and mic open:

    Is that screen protector really as un-smooth as it appears in your first photo?

    Why not use the "insert image" feature instead of making us click on individual links???

    I threw away my screen protector...

    maybe I'm doing it wrong but that wouldn't work for me. I'll try to fix it later today. it's just (img)imglink(/img) in brackets, correct?

    Great photos

    Stop complaining, folks. Ivanmarkchang went to a lot of trouble to share these shots, so show some appreciation. I'll be the first to say thank you, and suggest that you do the same, thehatman.

    Looks like a VERY sturdy case indeed.

    Yeah stop complaining though. Despite the HORRIBLE Photobucket service he is doing us a favor.

    I will upload them to a better server and post them here for him.
