Product Description

This folio is designed to complement the streamlined profile of the new, slimmer iPad 2. Outside, a textured black polyurethane outer cover lends protection; inside, a soft micro suede lining pampers your iPad. A narrow frame surrounds and sets off the MultiTouch display. Strategically-placed openings allow access to dock connector, headphone jack, control buttons, and rear camera. Élan Folio Slim also works for you when you're putting your iPad to work. The front cover wraps around back and tucks in to create a work stand, ideal for viewing video and typing in landscape orientation.

UPDATE 2: This case is starting to get very loose as it stretches under use. Threads around the case are beginning to come loose, and the iPad is now slipping out the left side of the case. Does not stand as well as it once did as the material loosens up.

----

This Griffin case works exactly the same as the Apple case for the original iPad. It slips in, has the same flap that holds the iPad in, and has a tab on the back for propping up the iPad for typing or for portrait viewing (which is much more stable and doesn't rock precariously like the Apple case). The material is not as dense as the original Apple case. As a result, the front cover does not close as securely as the heavier Apple front cover, but it does stay closed well-enough and works fine. The good thing about the thinner material is that it matches the thinner look of the iPad 2. It also doesn't catch dirt like the original case. The inside is more of a felt micro-clothe material. All ports and cameras are perfectly accessible. If you're looking for a case that acts like the old Apple case, this one fits the bill very well. All-in-all, a very good case.

Update: After several days of use, my iPad is still pristine. This case is holding up very well. Some observations:
> It's a sleek and thin, so it is a great complement to the iP2's profile, and it looks very professional for an office setting
> The cover does tend to give just a little, since it is thinner material, so you will need to adjust your holding position once in a while.
> The case is rather slippery, so be careful. It does get a shine form greasy fingers, but it wipes right off. No signs of wear or stress yet.
> Sits ver well in the upright portrait position. Stable and solid for slideshows or movies.

If you're looking for protection for your iPad 2, look no further than the Griffin Elan Folio Slim for iPad 2.

Unlike the Apple covers, the Folio Slip covers both the front and back of the iPad. It costs the same as the polyurethane covers, but $30 less than the leather cover.
With its slim form factor, it keeps the thinness intact.

Only two drawbacks with the Folio Slim: (1) Cover looks like leather, but is only a synthetic material. (2) When sitting in typing mode, the elevation is not high enough.

Overall, the Elan Folio Slim is an inexpensive way to protect both the front and back of the iPad 2 at minimum cost.

This case works essentially like the Apple case for the original iPad. It doesn't fit quite as well, though, and the materials aren't as nice.

If I had gotten this case for a decent discount then maybe it would've gotten more stars, but I paid full price at a brick-and-mortar store. I didn't feel like the case was worth it at full price, so I returned it.

I bought this because it was inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. After only 1 month with my iPad 2 this case is starting to fray big time with threads popping out all around the edges. Very bad quality. I came here to look for another case to replace this already and wanted to make sure others knew the danger. Aside from quality, however, the case is very slim and would otherwise be okay.

UPDATE: I wound up buying the $20 "CaseCrown Apple iPad 2 Bold Standby case" and while its construction and quality are MUCH superior to the Griffin (and it's magnetic so that it powers the iPad on and off like the Apple "smart cover"), it's a little bit bulkier and now some of the controls around the outside edge (volume, power) are harder to access. It does use velcro to keep the iPad in its pocket, which is nice in some ways, but this also prevents you from being able to slide your hand behind the ipad while holding it while reading, which I liked to do better than "grabbing" the case. Just FYI. Pros and cons to both, but the quality of the Griffin was definitely my deciding factor to switch.

I was looking for a slim, nice looking case for the Ipad 2. I wanted something that would protect all sides of the Ipad. After playing with a friend's Smart Cover, I decided the smart cover wasn't that big of a deal to me. I was going to get the Yoobao case but I was put off by the reviews saying there was a strong chemical smell. Although apparently there were revisions to improve the smell, I looked elsewhere.

I saw this one at BestBuy and saw that it was very thin, so exactly what I was looking for, so purchased it here on Amazon. All the reviews so far are pretty accurate. The case looks quite nice, but when you pick it up you can tell it's synthetic. The top cover is a bit flimsy (definitely less sturdy than the ipad 1 cover by Apple) but it does the job, both standing it up to watch movies and on your lap top type. I don't have any problems with frayed threads like the ilounge review stated, but as ilounge review stated some of the cutouts aren't perfectly aligned--but you all buttons are accessible. Going into the purchase I was well aware of the other reviews here about it's lasting quality, so I'll be watching out for that.

Still, this was exactly what I was looking for. A very thin case that looks nice and will protect my ipad from scratches. I'm definitely happy with my purchase, especially because it was 50% cheaper than the other cases I was looking at. Just make sure you know what you're looking for and what to expect!

UPDATE: been using this for 2 months, still liking the case. It's slim and provides protection from scratches. It hasn't loosened up much at all. I would still recommend this case with all the qualifications above.
