    First thing I got was a cheap $9 microsoft netbook case to use until I could find a decent iPad case (all stores were sold out). Within a day of getting the Microsoft case I also got a full body Ghost Armor applied so that it would be protected and scratch proof both in and out of what ever case I put it in.

    I ended up getting the: Incase - Book Jacket for Apple® iPad™ - Black
    From bestbuy(with $20 off coupon).


    The case is exactly what I wanted as far as design. Leather with a flap that you can just flip over and use the ipad while inside the case. The ipad is pretty well protected while inside the case. The back side has a nice cousion and the front has a good size gab between the cover and the actual screen. I also like the elastic band to keep the case closed.


    However, the slots on the case dont line up well to the actual ipad slots and the entire headphone jack is covered without any way to access it. Its almost like the case was manufactured before they even knew the ipad dementions and where all the ports/headphone jacks were located. For this reason alone I would tell anyone thinking about buying this case to get something similar to it but dont buy this one.

    I have a CaseMate Gelli skin for my iPad and a Booq Taipan XS carrying case, both of which work very well for me. The Booq is a messenger bag with a velour-lined zipper compartment which encases my skinned iPad plus it has lots of extra slots for cords, stylus, folding keyboard, etc, without being at all bulky. The Casemate Gelli skin fits very well. I am patiently waiting out delayed production on a pre-ordered Quirky Cloak case which will have a cover and built-in stand for it's skin-style case. If I don't like it, I will return the Cloak and begin looking for a separate stand.

    There is some reporting of the magnets messing with the onboard compass. Have you seen any of that?

    Rats!!! It does mess up the compass. Now I know what is messing up Beat the Traffic. If I keep the flap away if I am using anything that need the compass. It seem to be ok so far...

    Wondering how to modify the eco-vuw to drop the magnets in the stand.

    I to am wondering about screen protection. As far a a case I bought the HardCandy bubble sleeve, I saw a review on you tube of the Belkin Vue Grip and he was able to use the bubble sleeve with the belkin case on the iPad. This is what I'm going to do. I travel a lot and am very pleased with HardCandy case.

    I was never really worried too much over screen protection for multiple iPod Touches, Moto Droids, etc. The Screen is glass....it's really not going to scratch unless you take a diamond ring or other extremely hard item to it that would also tear threw any thin layer of plastic.

    The main benefit I see is glare reduction, if the high gloss screen bothers you......
