    Doesn't help much

    • Written by from Montreal

    I don't feel my iPad is in "good hands" with this case. Sad thing it cost (I paid) so much.

    iPad 2 Cover is Good for 1-2 Years

    • Written by from Orangeville

    I have had this cover for 1-2 years now and I loved it until recently, when the rubber part of the cover started to fold in on the hinge. It's too bad that they didn't design that part to be hard rubber or light plastic, instead of the soft bendable rubber that it is.

    It's a major disappointment and I would advise you to look for an after-market cover instead. They don't seem to have this problem.

    Cover is great for mini but they need to get a case for the mini so we don't have to go elsewhere.

    Pros and Cons

    • Written by from Kayenta

    The smart cover (regardless of color) is nice. Props iPad up to watch movies or to type, but the magnet touches the side of the iPad and scratches it. Should be like the iPad mini where the material covers the magnets to prevent this

    It's a cover -- NOT a handle

    • Written by from Dresher

    I'm seeing in these reviews people saying they dropped the iPad and were left holding the cover. Folks--it's not a handle, it's a cover. And--it's a cover that's held on with a magnet--NOT an industrial magnet, just a regular one. Don't carry the iPad around by the cover...

    Mine works great--puts the iPad in sleep mode (check your settings if it's not doing it?). I wish there was a black one in the polyurethane, but gray was fine. Good investment...

    I didn't know customers were dumb til I read reviews for this

    • Written by from Tacoma

    This is quite obviously not a case to protect your iPad. That should be obvious right? I mean shoot. It's just a cover! How could that be anymore obvious? Over and over again people will drop their iPads blaming this cover for not protecting them and writing horrible reviews when really, it's meant as a nice little cover/ kickstand/ iPad waker upper.

    This case has worked perfectly for me and well...it's hard to be really disappointed when you know what to expect. If you think you can put this cover on and throw it all over the place, yep. You'll be disappointed. In other news, iPads and lots of other things break when you drop them. So be careful and stop relying on cases to save your iPad from being destroyed

    Smart Cover is not so Smart

    • Written by from Charlotte

    The cover frequently fails to put my third generation iPad to sleep, resulting in a dead battery and in worst cases lost data due to apps continuing to run on line. Often when I close the cover, I hear the electronic click indicating it has gone to sleep, but later find that it woke back up. Very disappointed with this purchase.

    Not enough protection, too expensive. Comes off too easily.

    • Written by from New Berlin

    Look elsewhere for a cover for your iPad. This does not have enough protection and is too expensive compared to 3rd party cases. It comes off too easily. It was my only choice when I purchased the iPad mini, but wished I had waited. Now I can't return it.

    Good cover

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    I really like it for what it is!! I'm not worried about the back (ipad)because I really don't abuse my ipad. If you just have your ipad at home for reading or web surfing get this cove, but, if you are going to be taking your ipad to work or school than, yes, maybe invest in the case.

    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from glenview

    I bought a new iPad on Saturday and accepted the salesperson's suggestion to buy this cover. I take responsibility for not asking more questions, but I wish the salesperson had told me about other options. I was using my iPad the next day to take video. I don't know WHAT happened, but before I knew it, I was holding the cover and the iPad was on the ground. Glass smashed. Fortunately I bought AppleCare, so I'm hoping this will be covered under ADH. We've had iPods, iPhones, iPads and laptops in our home for years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I obviously screwed up, but the cover did not help!

    Skeptical at first, but totally satisfied in the end

    • Written by from Toronto

    I was skeptical of how well this would work after reading so many negative reviews. I bought the DARK GREY Smart Cover because I noticed that the other colours start to look dirty after a few months of use. Four months later, I am totally happy with this product. When closed it also somehow manages to clean the screen of fingerprints somewhat. The only exception to that is where the hinges in the cover don't quite touch the screen. I've had zero problems and would highly recommend it to anyone that isn't careless and constantly dropping their gear and then blaming others for it.

    Terrible product that is not worth the price at all

    • Written by from Watsonville

    Don't waste your money on this cover. It falls off too easily which is very frustrating. I wish I could get a refund so I can purchase a much better made cover.

    Dont pay for the smart cover-defective

    • Written by from anaheim

    Wouldnt give this any stars if site would allow it.This cover is very misleading,it is not a "perfect fit"as it advertises in the description. The magnetic strip is very weak and flimsy. While using my camera function with the cover still on, folded over, the magnet broke free and I tried to grab the iPad and the cover slipped and my iPad hit the ground. Cost me 249.00 to replay the shattered front glass. So far no response from apple in regards to my complaint so use caution with this product.

    It is Perfect.

    • Written by from BERLIN

    Don't bother reading the low stars like I did before I bought this. It is meant to COVER the iPAD. Not protect it. that is why there is back smart cover compatible covers. BUt this is a perfect stand, cover, and personality for the iPads. I love it because its not bulky but it is really useful. It's not really an accessory either. It's actually like "need" for the iPad. It really makes an iPad, an iPad and since it's made by Apple, it won't look like a third party product. I love this because it doest protect the screen from tables or clunks. I consider this product. Its really helpful.

    It's a cover, not a handle!

    • Written by from Portland

    If you are looking for a cover that doubles as a stand, this cover is excellent! If you are hoping for a full-body protective suit with a carrying handle, buy something else, but don't complain about this item! Who really thinks that they can carry around their iPad by this little cover attached by little magnets? You purchased an expensive tablet, treat it with care. Don't worry about the dust lines, they come off when you clean off all your typical finger smudges.

    Only four stars however because when it's in the taller stand position, I find that the cover needs to be fuzzy side out or it won't stay in its triangular shape. I'd rather keep the fuzzy side enclosed to stay cleaner. also, four stars for the ridiculous price gouging from Apple for 75 cents of plastic.

    Doesn't work as advertised

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    I had my first iPad for 3 months and had problems with the cover almost from day one. The magnetic hinges were always coming unattached and scratching my ipad. I also didn't like the angles it would prop it up, it never seemed a very good angle for me, plus once I would get it to a good angle it would proceed to fall out of that position quickly. The last straw was when I was folding the cover over, the hinges came off the iPad and I somehow managed to drop my iPad smashing the screen to bits (but the cover was still safe in my hands). I went back to Apple and got a replacement, for a fee, but that same day I also went on-line and found the most sturdy case I could find. It's been over a year now and I've had no problems with my non-Apple case.
