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.

Not worthy of the Apple logo.

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! …

Ok but needs improvement
Nice case overall. Love the red. Love the magnetize feature. The bad thing about the case is it doesn't stand up that great. When Nice case overall. Love the red. Love the magnetize feature. The bad thing about the case is it doesn't stand up that great. When you roll it back to make it stand, it falls backward a lot. So with that being the case, no pun intended, i would spend half the money on a case that allows the iPad to stand up better. …

I have the same case in red, and have never needed anything else. I hesitated to get this case initially due to the price, but it I have the same case in red, and have never needed anything else. I hesitated to get this case initially due to the price, but it has lasted me longer than I would have thought and even after about two years of use, it still looks great! I love the ability of tossing it in a backpack and not worrying about my iPad getting scuffed up, having full protection. The "hinge" issue that everyone seems to comment on has never been an issue of mine, it works fine and completely closes (effectively putting my iPad to sleep each time) just as the Smart Covers would. Very happy with this product. …

What a fail in my opinion. I was excited that they put a back on it, and it has potential, but they made a mess of it. It's SUPER What a fail in my opinion. I was excited that they put a back on it, and it has potential, but they made a mess of it. It's SUPER flimsy and bendy, and feels like it has the potential to get torn up in days. The inside is very soft, which I love, as is the outside... but then they added this 1/4" lip to the whole back, that feels SO rough on the hands it's like they forgot to finish it. The rest of the case is smooth, and then the edges feel like a hard plastic packaging that wasn't filed down. Awful to hold. I know they made the lip so that the cover would lay flush to the case, which I guess was to prevent if from flopping open, but all it does is make it difficult and annoying to get open, and the back just flops around when not in use. Terrible design. Stick with what you know, Apple. Throw this one in the dumper. …
