I ordered this case a week ago before they sold out. My iPad 3G arrived yesterday and this case fits like a glove. I originally ordered the official apple case 1 month ago BUT I noticed that the back of the case was made of cloth and would not provide enough protection if I accidentally dropped it. I found this case at the hard candy case website and was surprised that amazon actually had some in stock.

This case is made out of flexible thick plastic that provides excellent protection. The screen protector is made out of the same material and provides maximum protection for your screen. The grooves in the case gives you extra grip so the iPad cannot easily slip out of your hand.

The main reason I choose this case is because the screen protector is removable and easily stores on the back of the case. My original apple case opened like a book but the flap of the case interfered with my ability to get a good grip while using the iPad.

UPDATE!!...............I still like this case BUT it makes my iPad feel a bit heavy(bulky) AND the detachable cover seemed like a good idea but I eventually stopped using the cover because I didn't want to carry it around with me. I now use a "Casecrown Canvas Flip Stand Case", my new case is a BETTER version of the official apple iPad case. You can find them on amazon, they have a vertical and horizontal version of the same case and they are available in black, gray or purple.

I set my iPad and my wallet on the roof of my truck (Tacoma 4X4) while I was in the parking lot being informed by my sister that my mother in Texas was in the hospital a believed to have had a stoke(second admission this week). I live in Seattle. It was dark and I was clearly distracted as I left to drive down the street to get gas. When I got to the gas station I turned to grab my wallet and suddenly had a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach because I realized what I had done. I immediately returned to the route I had taken to the gas station (approx. 1 mile), and as I came to the first corner with a stop sign where I had turned right I could see the black pad lying in the middle of the turn lane, just a a car was pulling in to turn left in front of me. I was fortunate that they drove over the pad but didn't hit it with any of the tires. I got out and picked it up and it appeared to be intact. I searched for my wallet but it was nowhere to be found (I had just gotten $300 out of the ATM). Took the screen cover off of the iPad and pushed the home button and the pad fired up and worked perfectly. On closer examination, I can barely find on one corner of the "Hard Candy Street Skin" a asphalt abrasion. My pad is the 64 gig 3G and i spent a little over $900 for it. I don't usually write reviews but feel compelled to do so in this instance. I didn't find my wallet and i was miffed about that but if i have to take a loss for my own careless oversight, I prefer it be the wallet with $300 cash and cards than the pad. Quite frankly i'm surprised it wasn't a total loss. Today after the MRI I find out more about my moms situation. Thank you Hard Candy for minimizing my losses. I have had struggles internally about the inconvenience of having to snap the screen cover on and off during everyday use. I was sure glad it was there when I needed it most. It's not everyday someone saves you from a $900 dollar loss. I am a grateful believer in this case/cover!!!!!

I bought one of these based on the reviews.

Likes: the fit and the materials are great. The Hard Candy Street case fits the iPad tighter than OJ's glove. And the grip makes you feel like the iPad is secure. It is very good looking and if you are carrying it around with the screen cover on it does not look like you are carrrying an iPad. The openings for the iPad's few ports and switches are perfect. The corner tabs for attaching the screen cover work fine and easy. I like the fact that the screen cover can attach to the back of the iPad and clip perfectly on the corner tabs to secure it while in use. Oh the material - it is soft but feels hard once installed on the iPad.

My son bought one of those fancy leather portfolio cases for his iPad. When he saw my Hard Candy street case he said he would return his and get the Hard Candy case.

Cons: They were out of Black! I had to get the Clear one. The Hot Pink was not a consideration. I wish they made them in more colors - like bright Yellow!

Shipped from Amazon in just 2 days despite the fact that Amazon said it would take 5-7 days! Comes in a fancy box too.

This case does an awesome job of protecting my new iPad, and I love how the textured cover makes it easy to grip the iPad when I am holding it or carrying it. It is not stretchy like the silicone cases can be, but is more like hardened rubber. My only complaint is that the removable screen cover is a pain to attach to the case. The cover is secured via tabs on the corners of the case. It is somewhat difficult to get the openings in the cover to actually pop into place on the tabs. That said, I would still buy this case again.

I received this case for Christmas and have been very pleasantly surprised by it. Here's the rundown:

What works:

- This thing is solid. It feels like my iPad could fall onto a hard floor and escape without damage.

- It provides extra grip. I'm sure anyone who has used an iPad can relate to to the feeling of needing a bit more grip when holding the tablet. This case makes it feel less likely that it is going to slip out of your hands.

- It doesn't add a lot of bulk. Don't get me wrong, this will make your svelte iPad a little larger, but the tradeoff is a good one. You will get solid protection and feel more secure when holding the iPad itself. Overall, it's a nice balance between protection and size.

- Related to the above point, the case still allows me to put the iPad into my netbook slipcase. This provides an extra layer of protection and weather proofing when carrying my iPad around. So if you have a netbook slipcase that you've been carrying your iPad around in, this case should still allow you to use that case if you want (as long as the fit isn't already pretty snug).

What needs work:

- This thing is a literal pain to put on. It can be tough getting the strong black plastic around all the corners on the iPad.

-The screen protector is nice to have, but because of the way it is designed it can become cumbersome when removed. It would have been nice if they could have designed something like other cases where the screen cover can be used as a kickstand or something like that.


It's a great case. The positives far outweigh the negatives and it will provide solid and stylish protection for your expensive gadget.
