    What is the best thin folio case for Ipad 2?

    I got the patch a couple days ago. It appears to have fixed the sleep issue but pushes the case out a little bit at the bottom. Not very much though. Overall the patch is an improvement as I can handle a little bump a lot better than messing with the ipad going to sleep while I'm using it...

    What is the best thin folio case for Ipad 2?

    Just received the skinny. It's nice but is anyone else having the issue of it going to sleep when you put pressure on it with the lid folded behind it? I'm beginning to think the magnets are more of a headache than they're worth.

    What is the best thin folio case for Ipad 2?

    thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up ordering the skinny and cancelling my order for the marware case.

    What is the best thin folio case for Ipad 2?

    the release date on the proporta is about the same as the expected ship date of the marware i have preordered. Plus, it's too expensive for my taste. I've ordered some items from proporta in the past that were listed as available and it still took them over a month to ship it to me so I avoid...

    What is the best thin folio case for Ipad 2?

    I have the Marware Microshell Folio preordered but it's going to be another couple weeks at the earliest before it gets shipped. I noticed belkin had a nice option but it has said "coming soon" for over a month. Are there any other (possibly better) folio options that are lightweight and...

    Marware Microshell for iPad 2

    what makes it so hard to take off? wouldn't you just remove it the same way you put it on?

    Really?

    There are tons of ipad compatible apps. I haven't had any issue with them for the most part and they definitely don't look like iphone apps (other than the ones that were actually labeled as iphone only apps). I can't get friendly to load at the moment either but it used to work. Probably...

    Need help deciding what to buy

    Ipad 1 is obviously the better bargain. Getting last gen tech is already the better bargain. On the flip side, buying newer tech should make it last longer before you feel the need to replace it. The decision likely comes down to how long you plan on using it before getting it replaced. If...

    Is it safe to exchange my iPad 2 now?

    My ipad 2 didn't have any light bleed (even checked in a completely dark room) so might just be luck of the draw or some people are seeing something I am unable to see. Possibly just a bad batch where certain stores got all bad ipads and that is the reason that exchanging it hasn't helped them...

    Engraving

    if it's engraved, then you lose the 14 day return period for full refund. Other than that, the only issue would be resale value depending on what the engraving said. If it's something generic then probably wouldn't be too bad but if it's a name or something personal then it would probably...

    Is it safe to exchange my iPad 2 now?

    Agree. what's the problem if it doesn't happen under normal use? I went to a dark room and watched part of a movie to check mine and no noticeable light bleed. That's good enough for me. If seeing light bleed requires a specific test that would never happen under normal use then this is just...

    Pixelskin HD Wrap for Ipad 2

    I guess I'm confused. Why would you want the volume control covered? Anything left uncovered for ease of access is still protected due to it being recessed from the case. It seems to me that there are very few situations where there would be issue with the controls staying uncovered.

    Ipad 2 Cases

    They offer a 6 month warranty on the product. The 50% replacement is if you are the one responsible for breaking it or after the 6th months is over. It's not the most consumer friendly policy but I think it's good enough as people can probably find a defect in the first 6 months.

    FREE video converters

    Ended up being an AnyDvd issue. Combination of dvd43 and handbrake seems to be the best and simplest way to get dvds onto the ipad.

    Ipad 2 Cases

    if you drop something and it breaks, then does the manufacturer have any blame? Should there be an expectation of a free replacement? I'm not sure what's normal with other case's replacement plans but if I'm responsible for breaking something, I think a company offering any discount on...

    Ipad 2 Cases

    I'm guessing companies probably think the smart cover would be redundant in a book-like case since it protects the screen already.

    juzmel, how do you have the slim folio stand from belkin? the website says it's "coming soon". I didn't think it was available yet.

    Ipad 2 Cases

    The only issue with adding pictures is it would double the amount of scrolling to get through the list. I tried to use the html feature to put it in a table but it didn't work. not sure what I was doing wrong but that would have allowed me to put the pictures on the right and not effect...

    Wary about the Ipad 2

    I've had my ipad 2 for about 10 days and like it. I haven't noticed any backlight bleed or any other issues and I tend to be pretty picky about stuff. I went into a pitch black room and watched a widescreen movie for a few minutes and I couldn't see any light bleeding from the edges. The...

    Quest for the perfect...

    I doubt any accessory is perfect...at least not for everyone. I think the important thing is to get the item that fits your needs at a price you can afford. I haven't bought any accessories yet but I have pre-ordered a marware microshell folio slim case that retails at $70 but can be found...

    Should I keep my smart cover?

    I'm waiting for the marware microshell folio ipad 2 case. It's only $34.99 at adorama. It protects the back and still has the smart cover feature that auto-sleeps and auto-wakes the ipad. Supposedly it will start shipping Apr 15th....hopefully I'm not too far down the wait list. 602956008569...

    think about buy case for ipad 2?

    I would think if it had smart cover capability then they'd be bragging about it on the feature list. Only way to know for sure is to ask speck directly or wait til people start receiving them. It's not of the utmost importance for me so it won't effect my decision unless it is a tiebreaker...

    think about buy case for ipad 2?

    I like the pixelskin hd as well. I don't think the cover part of it works like a smart cover though. There are no magnets in it and I don't think it can auto-wake or auto-sleep the ipad. Still looks like a pretty nice case. Hopefully gets released soon.

    Pixelskin HD Wrap for Ipad 2

    I wonder if this pixelskin cover, the belkin covers, etc would have had much effect on smart cover sales if they had all been available at launch. I'm sure smart covers would be the bestseller regardless being the official apple cover but I'd guess some are buying it due to lack of many options...

    Pixelskin HD Wrap for Ipad 2

    I like that one as well. Just wish there was a release date so I could know if I can wait for it to be available. I wonder if the flap has the same function as the smart cover where it auto wakes the ipad when opening and auto-sleeps when closing. Kinda doubt it since it's not a bullet point...

    Best ipad 2 protective case?

    My top choices at this point are either the Speck Pixelskin HD wrap case or Belkin Slim Folio Stand. Anyone have any clue as to when they'll be available? Seems a pretty big blunder for these companies to not have their cases ready for the launch of Ipad 2. Makes me wonder if Apple waited...
