Renamed mSuitpad ($20, formerly mSuit), Macally's first silicone case for the iPad is atypically thin by comparison with competitors we've tested, and light on the iPad's front bezel, but has a distinctive wave-textured rear surface and holes for all buttons and ports. A Macally logo is in the center of a pill-shaped elevated surface on the back.

On May 13, 2010, iLounge published The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection, a multi-page comparison of over 70 different iPad cases and film protectors, sorted by genre. The following details were added to this piece by that comparison article; please click on the link above for additional comparative discussion of similar protective options.

Yes, Macally has the best of the iPad play-through cases, and also the worst. This super-thin design manages to look bad, feel bad, and constantly flip off in the front when your hands are on the screen; the only good thing we can say is that it’s as accessory-friendly as the far superior Metrolpad on the bottom, and moreso on the top thanks to a larger headphone port hole. The lack of button protection is atypical for a rubber case, however, and we’d stay clear of this one for that and other reasons.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
