    Ok I know I'm going to get shot for this but the best case I've used and the only one out of the half a dozen I have that I would give close to a ten to is the apple case. I give it a 10

    It's the thinest case out there. All the others make the iPad bulky. It does everything you need from a case. Yes it gets a little dirty but a damp cloth cleans it up nice.

    $20 and I rate it 8/10. I wouldn't trade it for one that cost 3x as much.

    I've got the Marware ecoview, and I'd rate it an 7/10.
    The only drawbacks are added bulk and it shows wear rather quickly.

    I must have researched a ton of leatherwork vendors when I was looking for a case, and Oberon are the only studio I've seen anywhere (and they have been doing this for over twenty years) which produces their kind of made-to-order, hand-tooled designs over drum-dyed aniline leather.

    I have seen maybe one or two vendors on etsy.com which do something similar with the design, but they don't work with the quality of material that Oberon uses. Even right down to the pewter clasp on the cover, which is cast by Oberon in their own production studio.

    An Oberon iPad cover costs a cool $130 - but the quailty of the workmanship and design is absolutely worth the cost.

    Oberon Design don't keep inventory, so whatever you order from them (through their website or phone order) is handmade only when you place your order. They have streamlined their production process so that they can fulfill each order and ship within two to three working days, unlike other vendors who have backlogs which incurs weeks of delay.

    They don't normally "customize" although they will try to help with orders as much as they can. For example, some customers who are allergic to wool have managed to request for their covers to be wool-free.

    I have one, but sadly after a couple of months of use it is falling apart :( A pity because in principle it looks good and works well. Just let down by build quality.

    I'm using an Apple case, and I'd rate it 9/10. It's really sleek, and like another person said, it doesn't make my iPad bulky. Plus, it also acts as a stand as well, making it extremely easy to type too. And it also comes with a cloth wipe as well, so my screen doesn't get dirty.

    Only thing I don't like is that it scratches and dirties very easily, and I found it a bit too expensive for my taste.

    I've had the Apple case since it was avaible in May or June. Its slim, works well for typing (and I insert it into Propup stand for handsfree reading and typing when home) and sticks into my handbag with no bulk. It does gets marked but using one of those "eraser" cleaners moistened and it looks almost like new again.

    I also have a quilted, padded small case from Targus which has small handles (which can be tucked in), a zip pocket and two other pockets so sometimes I'll use it because it has camera connectors and I can stick comb, lipgloss and small wallet and just tuck it under my car seat. I don't think it would appeal to men LOL. I bought it because BB had it and I wanted something occasionally so I could carry ipad and a few personal things. Works fine for that though there might be others. I'd say 7/10 for it and 9/10 for Apple case

    I also have a Tenba Mini Messenger that holds my camera and maybe 4 lenses and has a slip for the Ipad. Wonderful for a photograper who wants to carry the Ipad also.

    Vaja Agenda 2 for me and original Apple case.

    The apple case was first and was difficult to keep clean with the baby.

    No complaints on the Vaja case except that the Apple cleaning cloth I keep on the IPad screen has been turning the inside of the flap purple.

    I will say that I was concerned about the "build quality" of the ZaggMate at first, but it hasn't been an issue for me. I was worried that the foam going around the inside of the case would come off or end up tearing, but I have not had a single issue.

    It sure does sound like there a quite a few defective units from the factory, but it you manage to get a good one, it does work great. It is by far my most-used iPad accessory and it has held up well (again, other than the little rubber feet, which almost appear to be an after-thought).

    I'd be interested to hear what the poster meant by "literally falling apart"...

    I absolutely agree. I hate the new cover for iPad 2 as the original Apple case has kept this thing in pristine condition even after I have dropped it on to concrete from four feet up. all I see is those new overpriced front covers doing is faking off and letting the iPad 2 getting scratched.

    I also like the fact the original Apple case is so much like a folio in your hands. I can stuff papers, magazines etc. In there too.
