First Look: Griffin Reveal for iPad

Updated

Macally’s oddly-named Metrolpad quickly became our very favorite iPad case due to its smart combination of semi-hard opaque black plastic edging and a clear rear panel — now it has a rival. Griffin’s new Reveal for iPad ($50) is a different take on the same concept, replacing Macally’s frosted back with a completely transparent, glossy version, using a rectangular loop rather than feet for rear stabilization, and more closely tailoring the Dock Connector port hole — a change that may make this version a little less accessory-compatible. Reveal’s button covers are more elevated than Metrolpad’s, which we liked, but the top Sleep/Wake button is also more difficult to push, at least when the case is fresh out of the package. Somewhat surprisingly, Griffin’s price is a full $20 higher than Macally’s, too.
