    Meh

    The build quality is EXCELLENT, but ... .

    The design of the cover -- the change from four panels of the old Smart Cover to three panels -- is awful. It's not sturdy, won't stay in place and easily collapses when any pressure is put on the iPad.

    C'mon, Apple. Release a Smart Cover with a four-panel cover ... Admit your mistake. I'll plunk down 69 bucks for a redesigned case.

    Not "The Case"

    • Written by from Milton

    The manufacturing quality is extremely good! The engineering is NOT! The Case is very light weight, doesn't add much bulk and fits very well. However, the buttons are very hard to use thru the case, the screen cover itself is very thin and not sturdy feeling in the slightest. The magnet on the edge barely holds it but together when as a stand or down when it is a screen cover. The leather hinge is very rigid and doesn't allow the cover to touch the screen fully (this may break-in over time). The speaker holes were not a problem, actually this cover may enhance the low range sounds. Over all, I'm returning the cover and purchasing the Smart COVER instead. For the $79.00 this should be better Apple, no excuses!

    So-So Case

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I expected more of this case for $80. Build quality of my case is very good. I love the feel of the leather over the polyurethane. My iPad Air fits securely and provides excellent protection for the back. However, the front cover pops up by the hinge which annoys me to no end. Also, the stand is flimsier than I would like. You have to carefully fold the cover to ensure it does not collapse. In my opinion, it is worth half the money I paid for it.

    Looks great but doesn't function well

    • Written by from Bridgeport

    I love the color and this is clearly a well made product. However, it will not stay when folded over for typing or watching. It falls flat. The useless panels also cause the cover not to lay flat against the top of the iPad when closed. If you want a case that is just a case, not to be used as a stand or prop, look no further. If you want a case that also functions as a stand, look elsewhere.

    Great for Protection but Flimsy as a Stand

    • Written by from Wilmington

    I love everything about the iPad Air Smart Case EXCEPT THE THREE SECTION STAND IS AWFUL!!! No matter how I prop up the trifold cover, it falls over once I start using the touchscreen. I have to hold the top of the iPad with one hand while I maneuver the screen with the other NO MATTER WHERE I USE IT!

    It's a smart cover but not stand.

    • Written by from Bangkok

    The cover is very nice. It can be a smart cover but it doesn't work as a stand.

    Love the design but color bleeds

    • Written by from Alexandria

    Bought a red case with the white iPad. Very disappointed to see that the dye from the inside cover is bleeding onto the white borders of the iPad.
