    Ok i just got my Otter Box for ipad today. I like it alot. I got the $65 version (lite)

    Included:
    Hard Case
    Rubber Case
    Screen Protector Film
    Cloth
    Squeegee

    I couldnt tell from the website how it came, i thought it was one snap in piece, but it was a weird rubber piece with another hard shell on the outside. the rubber part has little rubber buttons for the volume and lock button, both work great. Also has a rubber part to plug the headphone jack. the hard case contains openings for the mic, speaker grill, and rotate lock switch. it also has a removable piece for a docking station from apple.

    Good:
    Very well made, will protect it very well. they thought about all of the features needed.

    Bad:

    not that great of a screen film (didnt fully cover edges, but the case does)

    hard to remove piece to connect usb cable. should have made an opening

    over all a great choice, google for discounts codes, i found one

    Horrible looking case, but I suppose it's the protection not the style !

    whats so bad looking about it?
    Looks nice to me (besides the fact that it leaves that open space for the apple to show which is kinda stupid)

    Well various reasons, for example you've stated one already, the Apples showing, it's to thick and bulky, the price is to high and the designs just rubbish !.. But I'm glad you like it !

    well you got to like the otterbox design to get a case like this. its bulky for a reason, they dont call it a box for nothing.

    i will try to get non stock photos tonight, the apple logo showing through the case is a trademark of otterbox i believe.

    Well I don't, look this is my opinion I just don't like bulky cases it takes the beauty away from the iPad, people are just different !

    I bought the Defender case and love it as I take my iPad every where. The opening has got a little easier to remove with use but I like Protection better than beauty. I paid a lot for my 64 3G iPad and I want the best protection against accidental drops.
    The Defender weights more but it also comes with a stand as part of the screen cover.
    I use the invisible shield instead of the included shield.
