Product Description

The Marware MicroShell Folio is an ultra sleek iPad 2 shell case that improves upon traditional shell cases by including a smooth rubberized shell for the back and a versatile, protective lid for the display. By covering both the front and the back of the iPad, the entire device is protected against scratches and dings. When you're ready to use the iPad, simply fold the lid back, the light magnets wake your display and you're good to go. When you're done, close the lid to protect the glass screen, and a soft magnet inside the lid helps secure the lid closed and puts the iPad display back to sleep. Plus, as an added bonus, the protective lid double as a foldable stand, ideal for multiple viewing angles or Face Time usage. The MicroShell Folio offers total, versatile protection front and back without sacrifice.

I bought this for my iPad 2 immediately after purchasing it, but after an exhaustive search through all of my options. I am very happy with my purchase. There are a few caveats:

The smartcover magnets are weak, but work as advertised. It needs a little push down after sitting on my desk as a holder all day, but will snap into place and put the iPad into sleep mode.

The material is very sturdy, and has already saved the iPad from a few tumbles. The method it takes to snapping it in place to protect the back cover is great, because it does not cover anything more than a small part of the metal surface visible from the front. Very unobtrusive. However, the material at the three joints of the front cover cover is already wrinkling after a month through my constant use of it as a stand during work hours, and I worry about the long term effects. I'll add more as things develop. Also, the material is nice and feels like rubber, which makes it easy to grip, but oily hands lead to stains. Be aware.

Finally, a caveat for those (like me) who are doubly-obsessed with the safety of the iPad, and have added invisibleShield to the product. I put it on the front and back, and the result is that the already tight fit of this product made it impossible to snap all four corners into the case. I have it snapped into three, and it's partially snapped into the fourth. It has never come off of the iPad, and it does not affect the magnets latching. Just be aware that it is a VERY tight fit, and is hampered from snapping all four corner into it by the invisibleShield.

Here is a video review of the Marware Microshell case for the Ipad 2. The case material is suprisingly thin(as I point out in the video) but in the months that I have been using the Marware, I have come to better appreciate the the way the shell becomes almost like a second skin for the Ipad. It feels nice to the touch and provides a fair amount of protection. Of all the Ipad cases I own, the Marware gets the most use and is easily my favorite. The price has also substantially dropped since I uploaded the video review, making the Marware a great value for the price.

I had 4 key criteria for the cover I wanted and meeting them proved to be more difficult than I thought. In order, I wanted:
1) Protection - from drops, scratches, etc
2) Thin and Light - the whole purpose of the iPad is portability. I didn't want something heavy or bulky
3) Functionality - Has Smart Cover functionality and has the ability to act as a stand for viewing and a pad for typing
4) Appearance - mainly color and texture

After spending hours searching through Amazon, reading reviews and going to brick & mortar stores, I finally landed on this case. I ended up returning up and purchasing the Colorspill2. I also considered the Apple Smart Cover with a separate piece to protect that back, but that was going to run at least $55, so I figured I'd give this cover a shot first. Here's what I think for each of my criteria points:

1. Protection - this is where the MarWare felt to me like it fell short. As the video reviewer stated, it just doesn't feel like it would offer the protection necessary if I dropped my iPad, even from a foot or two. Now, it might be well engineered and would offer the protection, but without some proven claims by the company, I just didn't feel comfortable with this cover. Plus, the cover didn't stay closed AT ALL. The Apple Smart Cover (ASC) stays closed when you move the iPad around. The Marware cover just flopped off, reducing protection.
2. Thin and light - Here is where all the leather (and pleather) cases that would fit the other three criteria didn't seem to measure up - by definition leather is pretty thick if it is going to protect well. This seemed to be one of the hardest criteria to fulfill and still be protective. This case is SUPER thin and light.

I can't say enough good about this case. If you don't care about the apple logo visible in the back then get this! First, it's meticulously constructed to fit the pad (i have an ipad 2) perfectly, i cant emphasize enough - it fit like a glove! it is all plastic but has a nice smooth feel that is a pleasure to touch. One of the best things is it does not add any bulk, the hold thing is still paper thin like it should (or better say, i prefer it that way). Look, the thing fit so perfect i have to look twice before i know which side to open, it's that seamless. The ipad sits inside it perfectly and when you snap the corners, there is no doubt it's in there securely. All holes and openings are these and in perfect alignment.

It props up a couple different way and don't fall. It also has the feature to turn off the pad when its closed.

Highly recommended. The manufacturer who made this put some though into it.

I ordered this for a friend (who never keeps his cases on his gadgets) and lo and behold he actually liked it. it actually makes it easier to hold the device. The only downside is the lack of felt/microfiber liner on the front cover. But that's negligible.

For the price, i think this is the best one like it for the Ipad2.
