I spent considerable time researching the variety of products designed to protect my iPad 2 3G, and settled on this. I haven't been disappointed.
Some other products don't so easily facilitate mounting the iPad on Apple's own dock - this does.
Given that I have the 3G version, I really appreciate the GPS/3G antennae being fully open for clear reception. This does not detract from the protection being afforded by the case.
I also fully appreciate the added bonus of the included acetate protection for the front of the iPad (complete with soft cloth, that effectively wipes-away paw prints). Patience in offering-up the acetate to the iPad is well rewarded.
Be aware that the front-screen protector only comes in the full-retail package (so don't penny-pinch on your purchase - it's worth the extra money).
Altogether, in combination with the Apple Smart Cover, the iPad 2 3G is an awesome tablet computer
