    So I finally get to join in on iPad case discussion. Here's my plan and I'm hoping to get some suggestions to make it happen:

    I'd like a very thin, light but tough snap-on back protector for continual use and a rubberier bulky case for when I let my daughter use it. Ideally, I'd love to be able to fit the iPad with hard snap-on case inside the larger case. Larger case doesn't have to be pretty... just relatively drop-proof. Any ideas?

    Also, anyone found a screen protector they actually like? I'm really picky when it comes to blurry images and color smearing, so is there anything that will convince me to not just keep it unprotected?

    Cases, I'm still on the hunt for.

    But I use an SGP Oleophobic Screen protector on my iPhone 4S. I have been using SGP screen protectors on my iPhones since the 3GS and I love them! They are virtually "not there" type of protection. It's as if once you get it on perfctly you can hardly detect its on the phone. So I figured I would get an SGP screen protector for my new iPad.

    They don't have an Oleophobic one but the Crystal is the one I get for ultimate clarity.

    The Antifingerprint ones have a coating and feel kinda weird. I didn't like the one I purchased and would never get it again.

    They also have the ones that cover the front and the back. Here is the link for that one:

    You really think you are going to switch them every time she uses it? My daughters use my iPad now and it's never been destroyed or damaged. Just saying.

    SGP Crystal was the only one I ever liked on my old V1 iPhone, so I guess I'll give them a shot with the iPad.

    Krunk, I'm not taking any chances. My daughter likes to throw things.

    You might be better off getting her something a little less expensive to throw around. :)

    I just orderd the Crystal cover for the iPad from SGP. I hope it comes before Friday or on Friday. The Ultra Matte will be available on the 27th and I'll order that then. I want to have complete coverage on the iPad. The one I just orderd is just to cover the front and I want to cover the whole thing. The Ultra Matte has a nice soft touch feeling and it's not shiny so it will cover the back great. The front cover that comes with it will be an extra.

    I am getting soo excited now. I can't wait for Friday! OMG! :ROFLMAO:

    I've been using the Griffin Intellicase on my iPad 2. I'm hoping it will still fit on the new one.

    I just got the iPad 3 and love it.... I went to best buy and got the targus slim cover! After I got home I realized it did not work, the magnetic strip did not line up, so the on off feature was not working. I love the fit of this cover hard back and soft front very thin also light! I went back to BB and searched for one that worked and luckily found one! Once they get this fixed I highly recommend it! GL guys. :)

    Before the iPad 2 came out. I was lucky enough to win an iPad case right here on the eiC. That is what I'm using on my (The) new iPad (3) now. I love it so much too!

    Besides the fact that I won it here. When people ask me where i got it, i luv to tell them i won it here. Of course they can buy themselves one from HardCandy Cases. This case holds my iPad securely and it keeps it soo safe. I only use a Dark Gray smart cover, the SGP screen protector front (on now) and back(to come next week). I want to get a Zagg Dark Gray leather back cover next month, not shipping till April 3rd. So far, that's all I need for my iPad. Smart cover and body protection will do as long as I have that HardCandy Bubble Case for my iPad, I'm good.

    Pictured below is a Black one. I won a Pink one. I have a Black one coming that I got from Amazon for $13 cheaper and free shipping. Amazon is pretty good like that.


    The Pink is a beautiful color but I don't want to use it everyday as it goes thought a lot here at work and it is going to get filthy dirty! They offer this is a Gold Green color and White! The White looks AWESOME I think I want that too for this summer. http://www.hardcandycases.com/bubble-sleeve-colors-the-new-ipad-case.html

    Very protective case. Awesome looking as well!

    Ya that sees pretty neat! I bought a smart cover to last me until I get my 10dollar case from amazon. The only problem is I'm really liking this smart over and considering going back to my original plan of smart cover/cheap back. Hopefully the new case gets here soon lol, if I'm going to spend 40 on a darn plastic flap I may as well return it and buy an otterbox online.

    Oo speaking of, was the final verdict on the defender/reflex iPad 2 case the same for iPad 3? I saw that best buy got in the "new" defenders but they cost more than the ipad2 defenders lol.
