Review: SGP illuzion Leather Sleeve Case for iPad 2 / iPad 3

SGP illuzion Sleeve Case for iPad 3

The SGP illuzion Leather Sleeve Case for the the iPad / iPad 3 is another in the range of Spigen-SGP cases for the new iPad that I’ve been looking at recently. You may recall that I did a review of their Spigen SGP Sleeve for the New iPad back in June, and was quite impressed with it.

This is a similar sleeve case and I’ve now spent enough time with it to offer a quick review.


The SGP illuzion Leather Sleeve is compatible with both the iPad 2 and the new iPad 3.  It’s made of genuine leather that SGP describes as ‘soft and luxurious’ and has a soft micro fiber interior. The sleeve can hold the iPad comfortably even with an Apple Smart Cover or a thin back skin on it.

It has an embedded magnetic closure and is available in 8 colors: white, black, lime, Dante red, Solaris orange, Sherbet pink, Tender blue, and Vintage brown. My review unit is a black one.

The price for the SGP illuzion Sleeve is $59.99

Review: Spigen SGP Sleeve for the New iPad

Spigen SGP iPad 3 Sleeve

The Spigen SGP Sleeve for the New iPad is a simple sleeve case for the new iPad 3. I’m not generally a big fan of sleeve cases for the iPad (though I do love the Flowfold) – but this one looked quite nice when SGP offered it among a handful of review units they recently sent me. So I decided to try this one out first and after a few weeks of use, I’m quite fond of it.


The SGP Sleeve for the new iPad has ‘floater style leather’ on its exterior and a soft suede Chamaude interior. It uses embedded magnetic buttons for secure closure. Here’s the list of its key features:

  • Premium genuine leather. 100% Handmade
  • Soft microfiber chamude interior
  • Embedded magnetic closure
  • Compatible with The new iPad and iPad 2
  • Compatible with Apple Smart Cover, SGP Skin Guards, and Incredible Shields

The case is priced at $47.99.

Review: CaseCrown Bold Standby Case for New iPad / iPad 2

CaseCrown Bold Standby Case for New iPad

The CaseCrown Bold Standby Case for the New iPad / iPad 2 was one of the first cases I saw available for the new 2012 iPad, and one of the first ones I ordered. It’s one of a number of new iPad cases I’ve had around and been using for a while and I’m going to try to crank out reviews for a number of them soon – starting with this one.


The CaseCrown Bold Standby comes in three colors – black, purple, and red. I got a black one. It’s made of genuine leather and has an interior lining made of soft, non-scratch material. Here’s its feature list via the CaseCrown page for it:

-Built-in magnetic strip provides sleep/wake feature
-Cover has flip capability to transform the case into a horizontal viewing stand
-Open interior pocket for easy insertion of new iPad / iPad 2 and velcro flap to secure it in place
-Made from genuine leather
-Colors shown in pictures may slightly differ from actual product due to lighting and color settings

I bought this case on Amazon back in March for $25. It’s listed at the CaseCrown site today at $41.95. See below the end of the review for purchasing links.

Review: Marware C.E.O. Hybrid Case for the new 2012 iPad

C.E.O. Hybrid Case for New iPad

I’ve had a Marware C.E.O. Hybrid case for both the original iPad and the iPad 2. They are quite good, versatile cases. They’ve never been my favorites, but I’ve kept them around as solid options and my daughter still uses one on the original iPad.

So naturally when the C.E.O. Hybrid Case for the New (2012) iPad came out, I ordered one without hesitation. I’ve had it for a good number of days now and have been putting it to good use, and also comparing it with another case for the new iPad that is awfully similar to the CEO Hybrid but priced at less than half the price of Marware’s case – the Moko Slim Fit Folio Stand Case.
