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. …

Good fit but terrible material.

However, that's about as far as my satisfaction goes with this case. Unlike the previous smart cases, the new ones are made of a leathery material and not the same rubbery silicone material as the older cases. These new cases absorb smells very easily, so stay far far far away from any kind of smoke. Also, do not get this case wet at all! I once picked up the case after washing my hands and the moisture soaks into the leather and deforms the case (it gets bumpy and never returns to normal).
Overall, this case is a joke for the price. …

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