Do you think the smart cover is the best case for ipad 2?

I personally like the speck case: PixelSkin HD Wrap case for iPad® 2 . It is very slim protects whole iPad, minus the screen of course. If I want to put my iPad to sleep I will hit the top button, I don't need the case lid to do it for me. Heck I like the apple case for the iPad 1 better than the smart cover...

It really is a neat concept in theory, but it just doesn't seem reliable. When I get my Ipad 2, I will be getting an actual case, not the genius sheet.

I like the Smart Cover. I'm using a Speck Smartshell for the rear. Great protection, the Smart Cover seems to stay in place better, the magnet in the Smartshell keeps the Smart Cover from flopping around, and little bulk added. The Smart Cover is a rip off though. Should be a lot cheaper for what it does.

I agree that the smart cover is way overpriced (of course the same thing can be said about just about anything with the apple logo on it) but I still like it enough that I bought two of them.

I have only had one case for my iPad 2, and that is a Dodocase. I like it's looks and the way it protects the entire device. It is easy to carry and most people don't even know what it is until I open the case.

People say the Otter Box for the iPad 2 is bulky, not as bad as the one for the first iPad! Use the screen cover has holes and yes the speaker is not completely covered. But let's be real, are you really going to lug it around in your hands or in a bag of some sorts. I work in the medical field, I have an Otter Box for my iPad 2 and a Targus sling. I needed the Otter Box just for the extra protection when in the bag.

I have 3 covers, one being the smart cover a friend bought from the states together with a targus cover...

Much prefer the targus cover, more protected, stand more stable...

so.. i bought the case that the same as iPad 1st original black cover for my iPad 2 but it doesn't look very good, you know. the material is bad quality and it got scratched easily. i'm thinking of buying the smart cover, but is it really that bad? cause i kind of like the original one. and then my brother said that buy cheap is buy twice. so i'm thinking of buying the original although it's more expensive. thanks!

I use the Snugg case which is a good deal at $29.99 (Amazon). $10 less than Apple's and it's real leather which protects iPad front and back and folds for use. It turns iPad on and off like smart cover. Also has a handle that's nice when case is open. K

I didnt like the micro fiber exposed to table surface, while rolled up behind the ipad, then shut case with same side on the screen. Those magnets are really cool though! I returned mine for a real case.

You can roll the cover the other way. The magnets will hold the triangular shape as well. I have a navy blue leather one which I fold leather side out and its just as good.

That said, I only bought the Smart Cover as it was cheap £25 on ebay compared to £59.99 in the Apple Store). Brand new in a sealed box too.

I just got my iPad 2 two days ago, and I got the pink mf and red leather smart covers. So far, I like as a case, but not as a stand. I like to watch movies, so I need a stand. I'm thinking about the Joby gorilla mobile.

I recently bought an iPad and have ordered a smart cover but judging by all these negative comments requiring the back of the iPad, any suggestions on cases that work with the smart cover?
