Having had an original iPad and an iPad 2 I was very satisfied with the Smart Cover. However, this one does not work well as a stand, the slightest pressure on the face of the iPad and down it goes.

The magnet needs to be stronger. It keeps coming off too easy. I've had mine for about 2 months and I take my ipad mini every where I go. It protects the screen very well when closed. But opening and closing it 50% of the time it falls off when opening it. Basically my only complaints are the magnet isn't strong enough and the price. I love all of Apples products but everything they have is over priced. …

It keeps my screen well protected. (which was my main concern) It also keeps me from over using the lock button, therefore preventing the button from breaking like some other apple products I've seen. The magnet is plenty strong and has never fallen off in over a year. Even after all that time the edges are still crisp. As long as you take care of it at least a little bit it will stay as good as new. I highly recommend it. …

I have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from because I have this and it works 100%. Does not disconnect easily, stand work I have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from because I have this and it works 100%. Does not disconnect easily, stand works great, and it hasn't fallen apart at all. Also, I have not come close to dropping the iPad with this attached.......not sure what that's all about.
If you're thinking about purchasing this cover, do it. …
