I tested all the top reviewed cases with medium protection and closing covers. The SwitchEasy Cases for iPad is top-rated so that's what I went with. I like the Switcheasy the more I use it, however there are no clear winners in the category. I suggest going with the case that suits your usage.

1. Polycarbonate. The cases with extreme protection like gumdrop or otterbox lack a solid adjustable stand and magnetic closures, which we now use ALOT and find very important. So, we are going with the Canvas even though my kids may drop the iPad. I guess if you dumb enough to bring this to the gumdrop paintball field (see their website), you might need this, but that is ridiculous. We are risking it and going with a case that helps us use our device better in the house. We put the ipad up as a TV on outdoor tables, etc. We need the stand. Magnetic auto shutoff helps every time we used it.

2. Leather. If you want an office look, I suppose the Targus or a leather knock-off would work, but don't expect it to protect your $500 device very well. I think the Canvas with its magnets and better protection give it a leg up on the Targus Versavu even though the Canvas lacks the cool rotating feature.

3. Super Plastic. Pixelwrap for iphone/itouch is the very best for durability, usability, and protection. I had high hopes for the Speck Pixelwrap HD for ipad 3 which fits the ipad 2 according to Speck and has magnetic closures. However, I don't think pixelwrap for ipad3 is better than Canvas or even speck's other cases. The fit is tight- which is good even though very hard to put on. The problem it that the folding cover stand does not stay in place and instead springs open with force.

This case works perfectly with my iPad 3. I did some research and noticed that others have issues with the higher angle viewing options with this case. For me, the iPad holds up in every angle. I'm using it right now to write this review at about 140 degrees for the right keyboard angle, and it does not fall or slide out of position. When I need to type faster for writing notes or something I use a Bluetooth keyboard and when the iPad is upright the keyboard sits on the remaining case surface which works nicely. The case closes nicely with magnets and effectively puts the iPad to sleep. There is a minor organic odor that is evident when immediately opening the box and that is due to the case being sealed for some time. It's kind of like a new car smell... Some people love it some hate it but either way it goes away within a few days. Probably faster if you leave it outside but it did not bother me enough to do that. My favorite part about the case is that it sits in a tough plastic shell that is surrounded by the softer canvas cushion, making it protected and comfortable to hold. It does make the iPad slightly bulky so if you enjoy the sleekness of the iPad this case is not for you; however, I quite like the added volume because it makes it easier to hold.

I spent a fair amount of time looking for ipad covers/cases for my 3rd Gen Ipad. So many of them seem overpriced. I bought this one because it was in the 30-50$ range and it had good reviews on several gadget sites. Overall, the construction on the pad is good and the material seems sturdy. So far no problems (after 2 months). Fits perfectly to the ipad with the slots lining up for the charger, headphones, and buttons. The ipad fits in snugly and has never fallen out.

The things I really like about it.

1) magnetic cover that puts the ipad to sleep when shut. There's a nice little plastic strip that sticks out and is useful for opening the cover (there's a many of these design additions that make it seem like someone cared about making a good cover).
2) I got the green: nice color with artful variations in the pattern and color in different spots.
3) you can partially detach the ipad from the bottom cover flap (attached firmly with velcro) and with some unfolding it forms a nice little stand that puts your ipad at about 20° angle. Useful for reading
4) everything is one piece so there's no pieces to lose
5) My order came with complimentary transparent screen cover (these things are also frakkin expensive 20-30$ bucks for some. Are you kidding me?)

Could be better

1) The ipad can be set to stand up at a steeper angle but it tends to collapse down to the 20° angle. The way the ipad is supposed to stand up is due to friction. The edge of the ipad sits on the inside of the outer cover, which has some texture to help hold the ipad up but it's insufficient. It'd be better if there were some plastic ledges to make a more secure hold.

There isn't anything that I think is bad about the cover. I don't smell anything bad that some other reviews have mentioned.

After reading a ton of articles on different cases and a ton of Amazon reviews, I initially purchased the Joy Factory Smart Suit 3 described in this Ars Technica article:[...]
Having children, I did not feel confident the Smart Suit 3 would protect the iPad from drops and general use (no screen protector). The form factor was sleek, and not bulky, so if you want a case that you can slide into a laptop bag or carry-on, it may interest you. I needed something a bit more hefty, but not as bulky as the more rugged/military-grade cases like the Griffin Survivor.
So, despite some negative reviews about chemical smell, I went with the SwitchEasy Canvas, which is the only A-rated iPad case from iLounge: [...]
Here's why this case stands above the rest:
- No chemical smell
- Sturdy front cover with magnetic locking (like the Apple smart-cover)
- Clear screen protector (and plastic inserts for headphone and charging ports)
- Just the right amount of bulk to give you a sense that it will survive a fall or two, but not overly bulky
- Great price for all that's included (read the iLounge review linked above)
- Solid build quality with good feel/texture
- Sturdy in stand mode (works great in your lap, unlike the Joy Factory Smart Suit, which was too wobbly in upright stand [picture frame] position).

I got the Charcoal cover, which looks great. It's not a dark charcoal, and looks really sharp on the black iPad. Very happy with this purchase.
