Here is a little pad care roundup I've done. I searched out a lot of information of everyone can have it at their fingertips when choosing a case for your ipad. Hope it's useful to someone.

And the format of each entry is like this:

Name of case or company that makes the case - url of the website that makes the case or something close
Best price range of the cases in US dollars.
And lastly are links of reviews of each ipad or just other useful links. That's if there is any.

I have the "overpriced Apple" case. Its not bad considering I got it day one when there weren't many options available in store at the time. I would be interested to see what others are getting and their impressions are.

A word of warning to spammers - if you're thinking about promoting your product here, think again. Any spam post will be dealt with quickly and harshly.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I know you said not to promote, but I know that iPad Case finder has the price, the links and the pictures. Would make for much better case finding.

Your link does not have all the different brands my original post has. It's a nice site but does not even come close to replacing what I have posted.

And here is another case I found:

Otter Box - iPad Cases // OtterBox.com
$65-$90
(special mention because the defender case for ipod/iphone are known in many reviews to be the toughest case ever. So tough soldiers use them on tours of duty. And I would assume the defender ipad case here would be the same.)
