    Difficult to open

    • Written by from Longmont

    Need fingernails to pry the cover open. The screen cover is smaller than the overall case, so it's very had to grab the edge to open it.

    Great Case!

    • Written by from Bronx

    This is a great case for anyone who wants protection for their ipad without covering the nice design of the ipad or the additional bulk or heaviness of most cases. When I first bought the ipad I also purchased the smart cover which I found to be a nice cover for the ipad screen but the back of the ipad felt had no protection and I often felt it might slip out of my hands and fall. The smart cover has a nice texture, good grip and soft feel. it is also light weight, does not cover the nice design layout of the ipad and very easy to clean (I accidently got makeup on it and was able to clean it off using a cool cloth wet with mild soap. It didn't leave any wet stains or smudge marks either. It looked like new!). The only reason why I gave this case four stars is because at the time of my purchase I also ordered the ipad dock and I asked the representative if the ipad will fit on the dock with the smart case on. He told me yes, which is not true. Each time I want to place my ipad on the dock I have to remove the cover. I've noticed that some people have complained about the case not fitting the ipad snuggly. No worries there, it won't fall out because it takes a bit of lifting, pushing and tugging to get it out. And because I have to go through this each time I need to place it on the dock is why I give four stars. However, this lets me know that my ipad is secure and I am very pleased with my new case. I love the color too! I would definitely recommend it to others!

    Fabulous!

    • Written by from GREENSBORO

    I think some reviewers are getting this mixed up with another case as this one does not have any pins. I am a picky person and I can't find anything wrong with this! Well, I do wish it came in more fashionable colors but I can live with the dark gray. The function of this is perfect. It is easy to handle and the cover folds back nicely for comfort when holding. It is lightweight and not bulky. And it protects well ... My iPad fell off a counter and had zero damage thanks to this case. It is easy to keep clean by just wiping with a damp microfiber cloth. I have had it for a few months and it still looks and functions like new. Love, love, love this!

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Vermilion

    I read several reviews which concerned me. One talked about a loose fit and I recall one talking about the cover not handling a drink spill. (A drink spill?) I purchased the new cover and love it. It fits fine and works great. The best part is that the new cover protects the bottom of the Ipad as well. My only complaint is that it should have been designed sooner.

    A simple case (iPad 2 owner)

    • Written by from SIKESTON

    It is what it is: A simple case. If you are looking for pen holders, paper sleeves, durable padding, or multi-adjusting stands then this case is definitely not for you.
    If you want an elegant, slim, nice feeling case that comes in a variety of colors; and you are not concerned with padded protection, because like myself, you believe that dropping this device no matter what case it is in would be BAD... Then this case might be for you!
    My iPad 2 fits nice in the case. I can see by prying the edges that the case was made for a slightly bigger device, BUT if you don't pry and fumble with it you probably wouldn't notice. The iPad 2 fits snug even when facing it upside down & shaking it.
    I like this case, with one exception. The rim of the case is seemingly sharp. I said seemingly, it wont cut you (I was weird enough to try), but sometimes it feels like it might. I am confused why Apple made it this way since they are usually looking for perfection in their products , but it is. And because of the edges it can sometimes feel uncomfortable to hold in spite of all the nice soft textures of the case.
    If the edges were not an issue I would give this case 5 stars for what it is. I feel the edges are an issue because the sharp sensation sometimes distracts me while using it. So, though I recommend this product because of paragraph 2, I still give it a 3 as a warning to those with sensitive hands.

    Bad for backpacks

    • Written by from Oak Lawn

    The problem with this cover is that it regularly causes the iPad to switch on inside my backpack. It's an auto-on switch whenever the cover lifts off the screen surface, which is something that happens easily inside a backpack. The result is battery burn and a hot iPad. Aside from that, somehow it also adjusts the brightness (I have no clue how), so that either it will be at full or minimum brightness, (minimum is a problem when out and about in the bright sun cuz it's a bit tricky to see it clearly enough to navigate into the preferences, find the brightness setting, then slide it up to useable brightness).
    Remember the Apple marketing phrase 'It just works'? Doesn't apply here -- it just doesn't work.
    My advice: don't buy this cover.

    Buy it. Keep your iPad looking like new for when you re-sell it. Nobody wants a scratched used iPad. Wish it came in black.

    Amazing case, but falls apart...

    • Written by from Powell river

    I purchased this case for my new iPad 3and loved it. Unfortunately within the first months the pins that run along the side to connect the 2 parts came undone and I lost one of the small pieced to put it back together. (that was after fixing it 5x before!)

    Wish it was made better as it really was a great case. Maybe I just got a dud. Lost my receipt so could not take it back to the store...

    Smart case - Love it

    • Written by from Niskayuna

    I bought the dark grey version and I am really pleased with mine. I wish & pray the "Design Team" at Apple come out with a BLACK Version, and I would that one too.

    Great product but room to grow

    • Written by from LONDON

    As many other people have mentioned, the case is very thin on the back portion. However, that doesn't seem to be causing issues or compromising the safety of my iPad itself. I have a new iPad and the case fits like a glove. I've never taken it off, perhaps if it is removed frequently the case would loosen. I'd love to see a Smartcase released with a slightly thicker back casing and made out of leather. It would be far more durable and visually appealing !

    GREAT COVERAGE...MORE COLORS PLEASE

    • Written by from LANDOVER

    Absolutely love the new Smart Cover for the iPad. It works so much better than other non-Apple cases that make the iPAD more bulky to fit. (Especially if you are someone who likes to carry in your purse). I would just like to see APPLE come out with more colors...PREFERABLY PURPLE NEXT...

    • Written by from Gahanna

    The smart case is a great product and a fantastic protective product that is a great for my iPad 2 and makes my iPad 2 look good too with the dark grey color. I only wish that there was a black Smart Case but dark grey is just as good :-)

    Good Case!

    • Written by from Saint-Georges

    I love this case.

    It fits perfectly my new iPad and it protects the whole thing, not just the front.

    The quality of the case is really good.

    Only draw back is that I cannot plug my iPad in the charging stand with the cover on it. But hey, you can't have everything!

    I recommend it!

    Great case

    • Written by from Brookings

    Great case fits the iPad extremely well. Only complaint is that the cover for the front seems to get in the wa. I wish there would have been magnets on the back to hold the cover so you don't need to hold on to it all the time. Very minor detail and con deal with it. Great case

    Great Idea!!

    • Written by from Wilmington

    I bought this dark gray smart case for business travel. It fits the IPad 2 like a glove. To those who have stated that it doesn't fit properly, I would say it is not applied correctly. It needs to be stretched over the corners like a tupperware lid, but snaps into place quite securely. It offers more protection than the plastic back covers. I also like that the cover is not held on by a magnet that can get bumped off easily. I own the aforementioned plastic back cover in conjunction with the magnetically attached smart cover. I can only cite 2 minor disadvantages of the smart case: 1) you cannot take the cover off and use it to wipe your screen.2) you need to use your fingernail to pry the cover open. I can live with both of those and wouldn't hesitate to buy another smart case.

    Protects but hurts

    • Written by from Orem

    I bought this thinking I wanted full protection for my iPad, it went in fairly easily and looked good. I used it for a little bit and it felt okay. I video chatted with someone, having to hold the iPad as I was not near a table or anyplace to put it down. after just 10 min of continuous holding I noticed that there are very sharp edges around the case and they were cutting into my hand. Making it almost impossible to use for long periods. I will be returning this product.

    Full coverage protection

    • Written by from Decatur

    I purchased this to go with my new iPad. I have an original iPad but never bought a case for it, so it has some scratches and dings. Since I wanted more protection than the original Smart Cover, I decided to go with this.

    The fit is very good overall -- it took a little bit of effort to get the iPad into the case, but I haven't noticed the iPad moving around at all. The exterior rubberized surface is pleasant to the touch and keeps the iPad from slipping from your hand. We'll see how well it cleans up over time. The interior soft surface is a nice contrast and protects the screen and back well.

    My only complaint is that when the cover rolls up into a stand, it could be sturdier. In horizontal orientation, it's a little wobbly. I wouldn't use it in portrait orientation at all.

    Overall, I think this is a good choice if you want to protect the entire iPad. High quality to the touch, lots of protection, and a sleek look.

    The case falls off the IPAD often, luckily I catch it all the time - it does not hold tight to the IPAD.

    Fantastic case!

    • Written by from MONTREAL

    I hated my iPad because of the case I had on it. Now that I got the Smart case I love my iPad again, it gave it a new life. I don't know what the complaints are about but this case is perfect. It keeps the thin profile of the iPad, better grip, great material and very lightweight. You have to try the smart case in person, you will love it. Apple what took so long!
