Case received and installed. Here are my thoughts after about 24 hours of having it:
- It looks good (I can see the iPad without obstruction).
- it feels good (though I’d prefer a powder-satin finish; it’s a little smooth).
- The edges are a little rough (could use a sanding).
- It’s less durable than I’d like. In just a day, it already has swirls on it from putting it down on various surfaces. Not sure if the aluminum iPad would fare any better; I suppose the argument is it’s cheaper to replace the plastic cover than buy a new iPad.
I’m keeping an eye out for a power-satin finish cases, though.
