    Hello, I am new to this forum, for ipad 2 is my first ipad.

    As many owners of an ipad, I was looking for a rugged and protective case for a heavy investment, and found otterbox defender series..it was very pricey but it looked very impressive in terms of ruggedness, so I was searching forums and reviews and oddly, I found many disappointed reviews (mostly comparing from the 1st gen series) that it did not have much durability or so called "ruggedness" so from the actual users of the case how is the case overall in general not comparing with the first series, is it worth the money? is it still protective? or is there any other case that is rugged as the otterbox?

    some advice please thank you

    These are the most durable cases you're going to get for the iPad.

    I like the otter case for its durability and protection. I have one on my iphone as well. The only thing I dont like is it makes the iPad 2 much bulkier than it is and you lose that whole 'sleek' look.

    Yeah I can see that, it's a great case for the iPhone 4 though.

    I really like mine. The only complaint I have, and it really doesn't even count because it's obvious why they did it, but I wish the speaker was covered as well. I plan on getting a mount soon and using the iPad as GPS navigation in the boonies in my jeep. Dust gets everywhere with an open-top jeep, and since the speaker is uncovered...

    I too was looking for the most "rugged" protective case, and my search led me to buy the Defender. It does add some weight/bulk, but it is a nice piece of mind especially when using the ipad while standing on concrete, ceramic or any other hard surface. You don't get any "do overs" when dropping an ipad...it will break.

    I once dropped mine too, thank God it didn't break, so I decide to buy a cover, but otterbox defender is not a good choice for me.

    I'm looking at investing in an iPad 2, but can't figure out where the cheapest LEGIT place to get it is. Does anyone know of any places that have good discounts or pricing
