zCover gloveOne Shield Set for Apple iPad review
zCover is well known amongst the Macworld team for its silicon covers that protect, and change the appearance of, a wide range of devices, now including the Apple iPad.
The zCover gloveOne Shield Set for Apple iPad surrounds the corners of the iPad with a rubberised grip, while a see-through hard shield clips over either the screen, when not being used, or clipped around the rear of the device when you're using it.
In terms of styling, the zCover case does lose out to some of the more executive and stylish cases we've seen lately. Having said that there is a certain practicality to the device; the rubberised silicon stoutly protects the edges, while the bulletproof (according to zCover) plastic shield will firmly keep the screen from scratches.
The screen can also be used underneath the device to slightly tilt the iPad up, making it slightly easier to type on.
There are some gaps, especially around the dock connector socket, although it's worth noting that this enables the device to plug in to Apple's Dock Connector. It has also been designed to enable full access to all of the buttons, headphone jack, speaker, and the ambient light sensor.
While the zCover gloveOne Shield Set for Apple iPad case isn't the most gainly accessory, it is one of the most practical. It firmly protects the iPad corners, and screen, while providing full access to all the ports (including the Dock connector).
