I got my iPad 3rd gen on opening day but decided to sit back a few weeks and let the cheap knockoffs from eBay come out. I hate paying crazy prices for a case. My goal was a front/back case, borderless, thin, cheap and of course compatible with the 3rd gen iPad. I don’t care for those 360 cases on eBay, I have one and they are clumsy to use and are thick.
So one finally popped up, $16 bucks with free shipping from Hong Kong. I waited hoping to find one in the states and finally just caved and ordered it from HK. To my surprise it only took a week to arrive. I am very accustomed to HK orders taking way longer.
The case is nicely made, thin and has a suede like interior that will not scratch the iPad. The case was advertised as iPad 3 compatible yet the smart switch (magnetic) does not work. I confirmed the case does have a magnet in it but it’s located where the iPad 2 wants it. I decided to keep the case anyways, it’s not worth the hassle of returning it to HK, and overall I really like it.
