Otterbox Reflex Series for iPod Touch 4th Gen (4G) Review

Coming in either a stylish blue, black or pink, the Reflex series makes sure you get noticed. The Reflex uses a mixture of plastic and rubber on the exterior. I really like the way the Reflex feels within the hand and in use, its curves and rubber/ plastics make it feel very comfortable and thin.

To get your iPod touch into the Reflex you'll need to snap the case into two parts and slide the iPod into one of those parts and then slide the second part remaining back onto your iPod. A fabric material covers some of the interior protecting your iPod from scratches. The two part design works really well. With a lot of two parts design cases the connection in the middle wears away rather quickly which can make it fall apart in your pocket and leave a gap within the two parts leaving your device sloppy inside. So I'm happy to tell you the Reflex doesn't suffer from any of these symptoms.

CaseCrown Omni Cover Case for iPad 2 Review

Many have pointed out that the Apple Smart Cover is an awesome case/cover but doesn't protect the back of your iPad 2. The CaseCrown Omni Case appears to try and solve this problem with a Smart Cover like design as well as full rear protection.

The exterior body is all black and doesn't yet come in any other colors which is a shame considering the amount the Smart Cover comes in. But never the less the black is quite nice looking and sets it off well. The back of the case is made of polycarbonate and feels very rubbery, I suppose it's a soft touch material and lends itself well on tables and in your hands. The front is more smooth and looks and acts like the Smart Cover. All in all the Omni Case keeps that thinness of your iPad 2 and covers everything at the same time.

OtterBox Reflex Series for iPad 2 Review

We loved the OtterBox Reflex Series on the iPhone and iPod touch but the one device we really wanted it to come to was the iPad. And it has.

Despite that one thing we all really liked about the Reflex Series is the colors it comes in. This only comes in black at the moment and is a real shame, we only hope that more color options are added in the future. Having said that the case looks great in black. The case is made out of a polycarbonate shell will rubber corners. The Reflex for the iPad 2 is so thin and feels very comfortable when in use.

Speck FitFolio Case for iPad 2 Review

The variety of colours offered from Speck with the FitFolio case for iPad 2 won't disappoint. With blue, purple, red, black and grey being offered and all colours look very sharp.

A soft leather like material is used on the exterior of the case and this feels great in the hands. The case doesn't do the thin profile of the iPad 2 any harm either.

The iPad sits in a hard plastic shell that doesn't cover the bezel at all so Apps and overall use of your iPad aren't restricted in any way. The shell clips itself snuggly around the iPad and it's easily removed also. Left to the plastic shell is a felt lining which also cleans the screen and prevents it from getting scratched when the case is closed.

Lusso Cartella Luxury Business - Slim Office Case for New iPad (3/3rd Generation) and iPad 2 Review

This is undoubtedly the most expensive iPad case we have ever reviewed and after a good two weeks of it being my only iPad case, I think I'm ready to give my verdict on it.

It's called the Lusso Cartella Luxury iPad case and Lusso Cartella means luxury cases in Italian. Fitting the iPad 2 and the just released New iPad. The first thing I saw of this product like every other was the box and this comes in one which is well worth writing about. It reminded me of the box Harry Potter was presented with when he received his first wand. Once you have lifted the lid off the box you'll find the case inside a cloth bag, everything's presented in a plush, luxurious manner.

The case itself is handmade and that translates into the best build quality and materials used on a case that I have ever seen. Stitching is ridiculously precise and every element is precisely square and perfect. You just know a great deal of time has been used to make these. Real leather the sole material used and is found on the exterior and on the interior and you can choose from a variety of textures and colours. With over two weeks of regular daily usage no sign of wear or tear has arisen.

Pong Research Anti Radiation Case for iPhone 4 and 4S Review

The Pong Soft Touch iPhone 4 & 4S Case is made out of soft to touch Lexan. Lexan is the same material NASA has used to make helmets and if you laminate sheets of Lexan together it can with stain a bullet. So the material is pretty strong. It feels comfortable in the hand which is also partly down to the nicely designed case.

I whole skew of vibrant colours are available with black, red, green, blue, purple, and pink being offered. I have the green which definitely stands out. Getting the iPhone into the case is quite simple, you have to snap it into place which when done the first time makes the case creak & crack a bit, which I was a little worried about but it doesn't seem to of mattered after a few weeks of use. The iPhone is kept very tightly within the case which is good but if you have any dirt trapped between the rear of your iPhone and the case, your iPhone could get scratched due to the hard coating of the cases interior.
