The concept for this case is wonderful. iPad really needs the ability to sit at an angle in both portrait and landscape mode. I wanted a case that was as thin as possible, looked professional and allowed me to place the iPad at the proper writing and typing angle in either orientation. On the first point, the case is much thicker than necessary and they then add a ridiculous logo emblem that only increases bulk and gets caught on things. Notwithstanding the emblem, the case is attractive and the iPad can easily be removed when you want just the iPad. HOWEVER, the main feature of this case, the ability to rotate and display on an angle in either orientation, DOES NOT WORK. Yes, it rotates. But, once you establish the orientation and attempt to lock it into a given angle, the locking mechanism (a series of little curbs against which the lower edge of the case is supposed to catch) cannot withstand normal use of the iPad. If all you want is to "display" your iPad at varying angles, this case will do that. But, if you expect to actually touch the upper part of the screen, any normal pressure dislodges the bottom edge from the chosen curb and the case collapses to the flat position. Great concept. Pathetic execution. Do not buy this case. JAVOedge needs to re-engineer and try again.

I've been living day-to-day with this case since last October, and am very impressed overall with the design and the construction. This is a very versatile portfolio-style case that also functions as a stand in either portrait or landscape orientation -- which not many other cases can claim to do. The pivot feature is a very innovative approach, and it's easy to swivel the iPad back and forth from portrait to landscape mode. I like that the whole front of the iPad remains uncovered. It seems to be well-constructed of good materials. After having tried a number of other cases from Marware and Griffin, and returned them, I ended up keeping this one for the long run, and have been extremely happy with it. But I would agree with the other reviewer who said that the only down side of this is case is the tab which holds the case closed flops over the screen when you use the stand, which is easily worked around by tucking it in behind the case when you're using it. Highly recommended.

I bought the Apple iPad case to protect my new iPad while I shopped for a better one. CNET recommended this case as an early favorite, so I pre-ordered.

The Fiber Axis case is better in every way than the Apple case, except one. It is:

1. More attractive: I like the magnetic closure and the textured design. The Apple case material shows EVERY smudge, and they aren't easily removed.

2. More protective: This case is padded (unlike the Apple case). And while more of the edges of the iPad are unprotected with this case, the corner guards seem to do a decent job of keeping them from contacting the outside world).

3. Easier to use: The iPad essentially snaps into this case, and it seems to be held snugly. It is difficult to insert and extract the iPad from the Apple case (lots of pulling and shoving involved).

4. More versatile: I LOVE the ability to prop the iPad up in both portrait and landscape mode. The Apple case only props in landscape mode, and the mechanism for this seems flimsy and childish in comparison with the Fiber Axis system - it's like folding in the top of a cereal box to close it.

So where does the Apple case beat the Fiber Axis case? Propping the iPad is nice, but how do I (and I assume most iPad users) typically use their new toy? With the case cover folded back behind the iPad and held in the hands (or cradled in one arm). The Apple case easily and neatly folds behind the iPad in this mode. The same brilliant mechanism that lets you prop the Fiber Axis case in two directions also makes the front cover want to rotate when flipped behind the iPad, and it doesn't fold neatly.

I purchased this after reading several reviews. I believe they are generally correct. It is anexcellent, durable product. One of my primary concerns when picking up this product was safet for the ipad. When closed, my feeling i that it would be very safe (though i do not like that there are exposed sections of metal around the case). If open, it would be another story. There are a few ways that this could be remedied easily by the manufacturer. The easiest would to be to raise the cases lip in which the ipad sits. This would help insure that should the ipad drop that that the actual device would be damaged upon impact. This is how my Speck case used to work - and believe me, I have dropped the ipad too many times. I am more careful now. :). The advantages this product has over items like the Speck Candyshell are many. 1. The professional look/feel. 2. Functionality in being able to rotate the product and watch in both lanscape and portrait mode. OK...that is not many, it is 'two' but they are big ones. :). Don't get me wrong - Products like the Speck really do have safety advantages that should materialize when examining what you want in a case. This ALMOST does it for me. If they could incorporate some of Speck's safety components, I think it would be just perfect.

Sorry for the typos. I hate typing on the pad without my bluetooth keyboard.
