I've had mine since the the first day they came out and only used the smart cover. I only recently added a clear back cover as more or less a just in case factor. But, the back of my iPad still looked perfect as the day I bought it. I picked mine up off ebay. Works with the smart cover.

Depends on where the itch is.
It does help on areas of the back that I would have difficulty reaching with hand alone.

Well, I suspect that scratches are always a possibility w/ an unprotected back of the iPad - just not sure about there frequency?

However, I bought a clear plastic back cover made by Cimo Technologies - snaps (and stays) on leaving access to all of the controls - compatible w/ the smart cover; adds little thickness to the iPad, and feels a little more sturdier to hold at least in my hands.

Just my opinion - good luck in your choice - :)

thanks all,my main worry was when it was lying around the house or taking it out,my smart cover covers the back when using it except when its a stand,i went in the apple shop this afternoon and the lad in there said they dont scratch all that easy,in the end i bought a nice Griffin slip case that has a pull up tab that lifts the ipad partly out,if i come across a transparent film(like the screen protector stuff)i will add one for good measure.

No scratches on the back of my ipad2 after 1 month. Now I have a leather case for it, just in case!

My iPad2 went straight into a folio case the moment it came out of the box - again 'just in case'

I scratched mine the day I got it :( I slid it across the table as it was bit out of reach and got a big scratch on it from something that I couldn't see on the table, still don't know what it was.bought a skin for the back since and recently got a back cover that works with my smart cover, I would defiantly put something on the back to protect it as I was gutted to have damaged it first day with my carelessness

 can understand how you would be gutted. I would be too.never mind in years to come you will only have one scratch 
