This is the case I've been waiting for!
I love my iPad 2 - it goes everywhere with me in my backpack. I'm a case freak and continually search for the "perfect" case. I th ink I found it! I have at least 5 other iPad cases in my closet, as well as the Apple smart cover. I love the smart cover function, with the wake/sleep ability. It works perfectly - I don't understand these people saying the magnet "ruined" the side of their iPad. They must be slamming it, I don't know, but I've been using the smart cover, and now the smart case since day one owing my iPad (over a year now), and I've had no damage issues. Everyone needs to remember, this is a DELICATE device and must be treated as such. You can't drop it and/or abuse it, and expect ANY case to protect it. That's just dumb.
What I really love about this case is this: LOVE the pink color. It's a gorgeous shade of pink that looks stunning against the white iPad. It has a really nice soft interior that hugs and protects the iPad - also love how they changed the interior of the front cover to pink, instead of gray, like on the smart cover. It fits the iPad 2 like a glove, so not sure why people are saying it feels big, or like it will slip out. It's a perfect fit, in my opinion. I also love the design - the white apple on the back is awesome. Every other back case I've bought to go with the smart cover has had the apple cutout because I like it to show, but I always worried it wasn't fully protected with that cutout. So this is perfect. Also love the white outlining on the controls. Nice touch.
I have one of these I bought at the store, and another that I ordered from Apple online, which is personalized - another nice touch. The ONLY downfall with the personalization is that for some reason, Apple has the personalization done in China, and mine got lost in shipping, so took way longer than it should have.
This is a fantastic case, and one that I've been waiting and hoping Apple would come out with. You won't regret this purchase. …

Great idea poorly executed
This case is really ideal for me. I like that it protects the iPad front and back and that it interacts with the sleep function.
However, it feels cheap, plasticky and poorly made. I understand that it is lightweight - that is all good. However, the edges feel sharp and unfinished and the roll back top doesn't feel as sturdy as my clip on cover.
I am going to keep it, but I am disappointed as I was expecting a better quality product - I have been used to good quality from apple. …

Is there a case/cover that exposes the menu bar at the bottom of the screen? The one I'm using from Best Buy covers it up.

Yes. It will prevent it as long as you don't drop it in a way that the back hits the floor. I have t he same cover and I dropped the iPad on a concrete sideway while walking. The cover prevented the iPad but the cover itself is a little damaged. Nothing much. The iPad fell face down on the sidewalk. But there was no damage to the iPad. :) …
