Incipio Silicrylic Case for iPad- accessory review

This week I am looking at the Incipio Silicrylic Case for iPad. This is a two-part case not unlike the Case-Mate Hybrid Touch Case where you have a silicone inside layer and a hard outside layer. The goal being to provide extra durable shock protection.

As you would expect you have the typical openings in the case for the 30-pin connector, speaker, headphone jack and rotation lock. The power and volume controls are covered by silicone, but still function. I found putting on the case was a little easier than other models of this case type offering the same style and function. However, it also has the same weakness; the top and bottom portions of the silicone layer are not very secure and can easily be moved or nudged with little effort. Of course this is because it is difficult to add any rigidity to the silicone case covering the connecting port and speaker, but there has to be a way...

I did find the case to be quite protective and even covered the edges onto the screen to protect any accidental iPad face-plants. As a side bonus, the Incipio Silicrylic Case does come with a screen protector for iPad and a wipe cloth. These are nice additions that you don't receive with other cases and in my mind sets them above the competition in this regard. The Incipio Silicrylic Case for iPad is available in four color combinations: Black/Black, White/Grey, Confetti/Charcoal, Lime/Charcoal for $47.95 in the TiPb iPad accessory store.

Incipio Silicrylic Case for iPad- accessory review

4 Comments

Is the screen protector like an Invisible Shield from Zagg? I just ordered the case and am wondering if I need to by an Invisible Shield also.

I did check out the Incipio ipad case at Amazon, but after comparing Otterbox, Incase, and Mivizu, I felt that the Mivizu ipad cases are superior in quality, value and price. I managed to buy this case from Mivizu at Amazon. I did like the Incipio honeycomb impact resistant design, but I wanted something a little more style and clean minimalism and smoothness around the edges. I bought the Mivizu EPI shield. It offered a better value. There is so many styles and options it almost over whelming. my suggestion is to read reviews and look for the best all around value.
Here is what I have,http://www.amazon.com/Mivizu-iPad-Eclipse-Coral-Reef/dp/B0043GWDU2/ref=sr17?ie=UTF8&qid=1293995985&sr=8-7
