Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Case, and iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep.
FaceTime and movie stand.
The Smart Case folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.

Love this case, with one exception.

Had a smart cover, which magnetically attaches to the side and protects only the front, but this is a step up in terms of protection (obviously), and the ability to both hold the iPad and put it into a bag for travel without worrying about the case moving around and scratching up the iPad (the smart cover had metal-to-metal contact with the device, and would pop off at unexpected times). The suede-like interior is excellent, and the exterior manages to look both industrial and elegant at the same time.
The one problem seems to be the "hinge" side, which pulls away from the iPad and has to frequently be realigned in order for the case to close correctly.
I'd love to see Apple follow up with a similar case for the new iPhone due this fall. …

I really like this case. Fits great and protects the iPad well yet still maintains the slim profile.

The "hinge" is terrible, and it doesn't close properly most of the time (the edge of the cover pulls away from the edge of the iPad); sometimes it pulls away to the point where the magnets aren't close enough to put the iPad to sleep.
Probably the worst Apple product ever... I can't believe Apple put out something of this quality! …

The problems with the case...I have several. The case is coming apart from the seams, although I have had it for about 2years and it is a year past warranty. It doesn't fit into the stand charger I bought from apple, and so the cover has to be removed for charging on this device. In my opinion, Apple products should fit and work together. The biggest problem with the case is the following: when using the case as a stand, the iPad easily tips over. It cannot be used this way as intended, and that was happening from day one, so not a wear and tear issue. My iPad tips over at the slightest touch and this is one of the reasons I bought this smart case. …

Good Value - Works as Advertised
If you don't have a cover that protects the screen, thin sides and back of your iPad, this is for you. I had a smart cover only, d If you don't have a cover that protects the screen, thin sides and back of your iPad, this is for you. I had a smart cover only, dropped the iPad and broke the screen.
This is much better, as it cushions any fall, no matter what part of the iPad hits the hard object. As to fit, it is perfectly snug on my Third Generation - "The New iPad". When you install it, just make sure all four sides of your screen are slightly covered at the edges. That will secure it. You may have to bend the sides of the cover down a bit while you are inserting your iPad, but you will see that it "snaps" into place. There is no looseness as it is a tight fit.
There are no negatives - it is a good product. …
