Reviews of the iPad 1 version were mixed, some loved it and some hated it. I decided to go ahead and order one of the iPad 2 versions anyway.
At first I was a little disappointed with the fact that it had a strong chemical smell (though others said they didn't smell anything). I was advised to air it out for a few days and to my delight, the smell did go away.
Marware obviously read the few complaints about the iPad 1 version because they redesigned the iPad 2 version. There were complaints that the iPad 1 version required inserting the iPad from the top of the case and it was only held in with a one inch wide strip of leather (that was tucked behind the iPad). Some said that this made it very easy to slip out if you held the case upside down. But now with the iPad 2 version you insert the iPad from the left side. So there is no way for it to slip out when the case is shut, and minimal possibilities when it is open since it has a wide strip of leather holding it in place.
Another complaint was that over time the leather starts pealing away at the edges. The iPad 2 case has an extra set of stitching around the outer edge - preventing it from pealing away.
I only have one negative and one wish. First the negative: The magnet that keeps the "Fold away display stand" closed when not in use interferes with the iPad's compass. When I have the front cover folded to the back I keep getting alerts to move the iPad away from the interference.Read more ›
Another solution is to return it.
What a pity - looked really promising. Here's hoping the Marware C.E.O. Hybrid for iPad 2 Black (602956007722) is better engineered.
Upon opening, there is a soft suede like finish on all of the interior items. The ipad slides in from the spine side and there is a tab that tucks in around it to help hold it secure. The cutout for the front facing camera and the home button are wide enough to allow you to slide your finger across the button and not just press down through a small opening in the case. On the inside facing cover there is a fold out tab and a wide elastic band. When the cover is opened and folded around the back, the tab can be used to stand the Ipad up at a slight angle. The elastic band can be used to insert your hand and help with holding it with one hand while you use your other hand freely. The elastic strap that is on the back cover can be used to secure the folded front cover so it becomes a single, open faced case and you can use the wide band to insert either hand (palm up or down) to hold it and manuever. Very useful if you were using an instruction manual or diagram.
It doesn't add significant weight or thickness to the Ipad 2. I waited quite a while to get my ipad and had looked at many cases - this is by far the best case and a great value. Construction seems very solid.
Great product. I have had this for about two months now and no real complaints, very happy with the Eco-vue. This is the second cover I have tried. The first was a thin faux-leather cover with the sleep/wake feature that was purchased at a retail store, and promptly returned. The case is stylish and professional looking. Nice soft real leather, smooth grain and quality stitching. Other reviews on the Eco-vue complained about it not having the sleep/wake feature, not a problem here. The sleep/wake button on the top of the Ipad 2 is right there, and is just as easy to push as is closing or opening the cover. The split second of extra time it takes has not impacted my life. The fold-away kickstand props the Ipad up at the right angle for typing or viewing on your lap or desk. The hand strap is sturdy and another useful feature. It didn't get 5 stars for several reasons: The upright display configuration does not stand on smooth surfaces unless it has something to prop up against, even then still not sturdy unless on a towel. We hardly use it in that configuration anyway. Also the problem with this and most covers is there no place for a stylus if you use one. Great product and great price.
