Monster iPad Case Test: Skins and Hard Cases
Product Round-up Rubber skins and plastic hard cases may not provide your iPad with the all-encompasing protection of a folio or slipcase, but they'll certainly take the knocks - and bring some colour and individuality to your tablet.
Belkin Grip Vue Case
Belkin's skin sits somewhere between the hard clip-on-the-back cases and the floppy ones. Like the latter, it wraps around the tablet's sides and onto the front, but is rigid. In place, it offers a good fit with buttons and gaps well aligned with the iPad's own, though its stiffness makes it a git to get on - bear this in mind if you plan to swap cases regularly. Otherwise, a nice product.

More Info Belkin
Classic silicone skin, but one which doesn't cover the iPad's power and volume buttons. Two bone-shaped pads on the back lift the iPad up off the deck when it's laid flat, but give it a slightly odd feel when you're holding it. The thin lips that folds over the edge of the iPad's front are a little too easy to dislodge.

It'd be a better article
if you took photos of YOUR iPad in the case, rather than using their promotional ones.
If you're reviewing a BK Whopper, I'd much rather see the one YOU got and the box it came in compared to the one they'd love to sell you (aka the marketing material).
Real photos next time please!
