Don't listen to the people who are careless...
This is the absolute best case for iPad. That 1 star review? Well they are just careless, romping around throwing an iPad around. This is absolutely worth every penny for the looks, and function. The leather ones have a smooth, gorgeous texture, and beautiful colors. It cleans and protects the screen with ease. …

Love the way it works
As a cover for the screen and as a stand, I find it works quite well. It does have a few cons though. Each fold area leave marks on the screen. Easy to wipe off, but there after most uses.
The tam version being light in color stains from the oil in your hands wherever you grip it when the cover is closed over the screen. i.e. top and bottom edge where you would carry the ipad with the cover closed. …

Exactly what I'd hoped for
I have the tan leather Smart Cover on my iPad with retina display (4th generation).
It feels great to the touch. Makes my iPad a pleasure to pick up.
It gives a personal touch to a glass & metal mechanical device, due to the uniquely individual way in which leather ages and wears.
The more it wears, the more I appreciate it ... like a well-used leather jacket that your Dad left to you.
As others have said here, if you want your smart cover to remain flawless, unmarked, sanitized-looking, then get the man-made material version and get it in a darker color. You will spend less money for it and it will suit your style better. But if you're the type of person who can appreciate and value a well-used antique, leather-bound book, then this is the Smart Cover for you. …
