    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...

    Great product

    • 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.

    I love this case it performs just like the Smart Cover but it protects the back. Many people have complained about this case but I have no problems whatsoever. This is a good case for your ��������. I definatly would recommend this case to everyone!!!!

    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!

    Bad Choice

    • Written by from New Windsor

    The case was badly designed because it was made in two pieces and when they were combined you were left with a uncomfortable edge of the case. Ive had mine for a few weeks and the cover part is already starting to wrinkle and brake. Its had to take off to put in docks as well.

    Nice Case but how about BLACK?

    • Written by from Martinsville

    Great case. Slim and protects ipad well all around. VERY disappointed in color selection. How about a BLACK case. Black would make me very happy... Dark gray... not so much. Hey Apple... did I mention that a BLACK case would be nice?

    Good Case - Still Room for Improvement

    • Written by from Castle Rock

    This is a good one-piece case that does a very good job protecting both the front and back of the iPad and it is aesthetically pleasing like all other Apple products. It also does a good job of keeping dust and other particulates from getting to the back surface of the iPad. So far it is a five star product...

    However, I have two complaints worth one rating star apiece.

    (Before I provide details regarding my complaints, I would like to suggest to Apple designers that any future iPad Smart Case product should include more rigid construction for the part of the case that protects that back side of the iPad.)

    Due to the flimsiness of the back side protection part of the case, two problems are introduced: the iPad fits inside of the case too loosely which in turn causes problems with the use of the headphone jack on top and with connections to the dock/cable connector on the bottom. Those two problems make plugging the iPad in to charge it, manage media or back it up a challenge when the iPad is left in the case as the opening for the connector does not line up very well with the connector (I do not sync nor back up my iPad using WiFi) - I usually have to move the case around to get a solid connection. Additionally, unless you are using the Apple ear buds, a secure connection for your headphones is not guaranteed because the case gets in the way of the headphone jack at the bottom of the opening for it. I use Bose QC15 headphones and their connection in the headphone jack is not complete. The audio quality and using the mic on my headphone cord with such an incomplete connection are still fine.

    Regardless of the fact that I can manipulate the case to get the power/data cable connection to work, and the headphone connection works while not being complete, Apple should have made the back cover of the case more rigid so as to make sure that the openings for the connector and headphone jack are always properly aligned and so that more than just the Apple ear buds can connect completely to the headphone jack.

    In the end, I ended up giving this case to my dad as a random gift and went with a Moshi iGlaze XT, Moshi iVisor AT and Apple iPad Smart Cover combination for my own iPad to make sure it was protected all around and still looked good.

    Coming apart

    • Written by from Trois-Ruisseaux

    Bought this for my wife in March. Material started coming away from hard cover in May, now the clips don't hold the iPad in place......making it fall out. Exactly the opposite of what I wanted. Really liked it at first, wonder if I just got a bad one. Haven't tried for any recourse yet (bought from an apple vending machine in the Ottawa airport), hoping for the best! Hard to recommend at this point.

    Don't be fooled...

    • Written by from Tremonton

    This case is amazing. I read so many reviews prior to, and even AFTER, purchasing this case. Most of them were the most nit picky things I'd ever come across. The case fits perfectly with an iPad 3. The rubber feel to the back is awesome to hold in your hands, it makes you feel like it will never fall out. The smart cover, as a stand, works flawlessly. I read on one review that the edges were too sharp… please. The magnetic cover part is very easy to open. The only good thing that I read about this case was the lining. And they nailed that. The lining of the case is very soft and will keep your iPad scratch free on the top and the bottom.

    VERY SATISFIED, don't be fooled by "Reviewers" trying to gain some web traffic or youtube plays by calling an Apple product sub-par.

    Excellent Choice. Can't understand bad reviews

    • Written by from Englewood

    I had mixed feelings about buying this case based upon some of the previous negative reviews. I have a 3rd gen iPad, so I don't know if it makes any difference in how the device fits in the case. I had a smart cover, but found it was always opening accidentally. I have experienced NONE of the problems aforementioned by others. The case is slim fitting, so it doesn't detract from the sleekness of the iPad. The cover stays closed tightly and folds in the same way the smart cover does. Just be mindful that the case is not shock absorbent. So if you drop it on a hard surface, you're likely to incur damage.

    Nice Protection!

    • Written by from Mishawaka

    I actually like this case and I've tried many. It protects the back unlike the Smart Cover alone. I purchased the dark gray or charcoal and it is really just gray. Apple, please make a black Smart Case and I'll give you the extra star!

    Works great for protecting the iPad, fits nice and snug, maybe just a little too snug it's somewhat difficult to put on. Looks great though.
