* Inexpensive protection for the wallet you just emptied in acquiring this latest iToy.
* Protects all around the frame of the iPad, and leaves the connection slot, speaker, and switches functional. The microphone is partly covered, however. See cons.
* Included screen protector is adequate, but I'm not sure if it's really necessary. Haven't tried the key test yet. ;)
* Because of the natural friction properties of rubber, the skin allows the iPad to lean on objects without sliding off; this is, by far, my favorite side-effect of this skin, as it allows me to lean the device at any angle on other objects.
* Skin is easily removed and installed for cleaning.
* Screen protector can be easily removed and replaced if you don't like it.
* Rubber surface provides a very effective gripping surface for the slippery, and sharp, iPad.
* Allows the Apple USB cable to connect without having to remove the skin.
* The screen protector doesn't seem to interfere with the touch responsiveness.
* The thickness (~1/8") of the skin makes it difficult to reach the rotate-lock switch, the headphone jack (if your headphone jack is not small enough to fit), and apparently it makes it impossible to dock with the Apple iPad keyboard dock.
* As noted by another reviewer, the product is great for its price, but the shipping leaves a great deal to be desired; case in point, the screen protector that came with it came with a crease in the middle of the screen, probably due to mishandling during shipping, and leaves a nice air bubble after installation. A hard paper sleeve/cardboard sleeve may help with shipping woes--take note, Vizu.
* The skin does not fit perfectly, as some other reviewers have noted, but this isn't a big deal because I'm not that anal. The bottom of the skin wraps, but leaves a small gap where dirt can accumulate. The flip-side of this is that the skin can be easily removed for cleaning.
* Because of the frictional properties of rubber, this new skin attracts dirt and lint like the floor of my house. Hopefully, it'll break-in over time, but I like my devices looking like cr*p anyway, because it discourages people from stealing them. I believe Apple's iPad case has the same problem.
* The openings for the speaker, microphone, and rotate lock switch aren't perfectly aligned with the device, again, making the rotate lock switch difficult to reach and flip. The speaker opening is purely an aesthetic issue. I have not tested the microphone, but since I can see the mic opening, it shouldn't be an issue in real world practice. Reading the other reviews, it seems like this product is made inconsistently (or the iPad is, one or the other), and with fairly loose tolerances. Mind you, at this price range, you can't expect to have tight tolerances.
* The volume and power switches are covered by a thicker pad of rubber; this helps with the switch functionality, because the skin is ~1/8" thick.
* Shipping took longer than most Amazon shipments (more than a week), perhaps because it was on a ground USPS truck from NY. I live in California.
* The skin covers the WiFi antenna (the Apple logo), but I have had no issues with the connection so far. Will update as required.
* I wish the skin covered the bezel, because the current design makes it seem really flimsy at the bottom's edge. However, a thicker bezel might mean a more difficult installation.
* The screen protector has specific instructions for installation; FOLLOW THEM. I found using my thumbs works really well to push the air bubbles from the center of the screen towards the edges.
* It adds weight to the iPad, but for the added security in my hands and scratch protection, it's a fair tradeoff.
* It adds very little overall thickness to the device, as I have no trouble placing the whole thing in my Timbuk2 laptop bag (without a laptop).
* For the price, ~$13 shipped, I can't complain too much. I was hoping for a hard plastic case with rubberized exterior, but I think I prefer this all-rubber design because I can lean the iPad with it. In fact, it earns an extra star because of the value this thing holds. J
* The manufacturer offers an entry to a contest if an honest review is submitted to both Amazon and emailed back to them. Be sure to read the attached Thank You note.
* This must be the longest review anyone has ever written about a $13 piece of rubber.
* WiFi doesn't seem to be affected by the extra layer of rubber.
* The seller has sent me a replacement screen protector after I emailed them. They even took my suggestion to use a cardboard sleeve for shipping. Mint condition! 5 STARS for the seller.
So, in conclusion, I gave it 5 stars.
I bought the clear case, so that I could still see the Apple logo and such on the back and keep the Apple aesthetic when viewed from the back. The case didn't overly smell like cheap plastic, so that was a plus right out of the gate. It covers the sharp edges on the iPad and makes it a lot more comfortable to hold. It does add just a little bit more heft and weight to the iPad, and the iPad is already heavy enough, but it's not so much that it makes it uncomfortable. My only problem with the case is that it doesn't seem to completely fit all the way around the edges. It ripples out just a tiny bit on the edges, for some reason. I'm guessing it's just a tiny bit too small. I realize you can't make it too small, because then it won't fit, and you can't make it too big, because then it would be too loose. After tugging on it and stretching it, I've got it to where it fits pretty well, but it still ripples up just a tad on the sides every once in a while. Also, I don't understand why all the gel cases for the iPad all try to avoid covering the home button on the bottom. It makes for a pretty flimsy fit at the bottom. I wish it was like my iPod Touch case and just covered the home button with a little cutout or depression where the button is to make it accessible. Seems like that would have been better than just having it fit around the home button. The case is already pretty flimsy around the home button because there has to be a space cutout for the charging/sync cable to go in the port at the bottom. When you leave a cutout around the home button as well, it feels really flimsy right there and it ripples around the home button. I guess in the end, those are smaller gripes, but they are irritations. It seems like it could have fit a bit better.
Regarding the included screen protector, I didn't really have trouble following the instructions, but because the iPad has a big screen, it was much harder to put on than putting a screen protector on a phone or iPod because the protector was so much bigger. That's not really a flaw in the design or a problem with the protector, but I had a much harder time putting it on than I thought I would. The protector itself is not near as cheap as some other reviews made it out to be. I think it's just that it is so unwieldy to put on because you're trying to place a roughly 10 inch protector on a square product and maneuver the home button cutout on it just right and line it all up correctly. MUCH harder than any other protector I've every put on. I had to redo it several times, and by that time it was lint city. I had lint, dust and hairs underneath the protector. That made it tougher to smooth out and such. I've got it acceptable looking now, but it's not what I was hoping for. But, again, that's not due to the screen protector, in my opinion. It's due the increased degree of difficulty in putting a screen protector on just right on such a large screen.
I know that was a lot of detail, but overall, I'm pretty satisfied. It may not be the nicest protector I've ever purchased, but you can't beat what you get for $13. I might find something better down the road, but until that happens, this makes for a pretty good solution for protecting my iPad.
