    Breakable material

    • Written by from Chicago

    Liked the smart cover but after only 18 months two corners of the underside have broken off. The cover has been used only in my home and not mishandled. For the price I would have expected it to wear better.

    Good cover, horrible stand

    • Written by from Seattle

    Basically this case is not worth buying, as it doesn't serve any other purpose than to cover your iPad. When you attempt to fold up the screen cover to use as a stand, it only raises the ipad a half inch, not suitable for almost any viewing scenarion except if you are literally standing above the Ipad hovering over a desk. But lying down, sitting in a chair or bed, the Ipad is not facing you, its facing the ceiling, forcing you to hold it in your hands, and making the case meaningless.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Calgary

    This is a great product.
    I only wish that it came in a dark blue or black (Available in leather).
    Covers the entire device. Only 2 problems. The case can be difficult to open sometimes because it sits so flush, and if you are carrying your iPad around the cover slips off a little and exposes a little bit of the screen.

    Other than that highly recommended.

    Nice case, terrible stand

    • Written by from Chicago

    I surprised my sister with an iPad for her birthday and purchased this case to go along with it. Yesterday I had my first opportunity to test it out surfing the web and playing a game. The case is nice. The soft material on the inside of the cover functions well to protect the glass from scratches. The auto on/off works flawlessly too. I didn't have any problems with scratching while holding it. The one issue I did have was with the cover folding into a stand. It seemed to be a little too heavy and it fell repeatedly. One other benefit was the free engraving on the case. Personalized the case and not the iPad so not to impact the iPad resell value.

    Well Done

    • Written by from Davie

    Skeptical to initially purchase because of all the bad reviews. However, this is an excellent case for the iPad. Comfortable to hold, easy to use, and I am able to stick it in any bag knowing it will be protected. I would definitely recommend it.

    Need this for iPad Mini!

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I just got my iPad Mini and there is no was to protect it like it should be. This cover protects an iPad like it should. Why would you want a cover that only protects the screen and not the back? Does Apple think that people don't care about the entire thing and not just the screen?

    Make one for iPad Mini soon!

    Just ok.

    • Written by from Garden Grove

    I originally liked this case a lot when I first purchased it. After awhile, it doesn't really hold the iPad as firmly as I like and plus the edges are very sharp. When you are reading a book, it tends to dig into the palms of your hands which is quite painful. The stand isn't very stable as well. If I could, I would replace this case with the smart cover.

    Apple is constantly looking to improve the quality of their products. The Smart Case is the perfect place to begin! This thing cost $50....If the price was $25, I'd give it 4 stars. Does nothing other than hold and cover your iPad.

    Simple, Functional Case

    • Written by from SANTA FE

    I just bought this case a couple of days ago and thus far have been happy with it. It's nice having a simple one piece case which protects the iPad without adding a lot of bulk. Good for carrying an iPad in a back pack or other bag. I like the dark gray color and the texture for gripping the iPad. Unlike other reviews, I find the fit reasonable and have no trouble opening the magnetic lid (note: I have iPad gen 3). I have not yet tried to remove the case and put it back on since the iPad is very functional staying in the case at all times. The only drawback I have found thus far are the slightly "sharp" edges (similar to original iPad case from Apple) but I understand that part of the functionality of the edge is to add stiffness without requiring that the entire case be stiff.

    Good protection, but uncomfortable to hold.

    • Written by from St. Albert

    The case fits well and provides good protection, but the edges are actually quite sharp and make the case uncomfortable to hold.

    Bought it with the iPad, thinking it'd be a good match to protect the tablet. It's cheap, flimsy, especially for the price, doesn't fit snug around the tablet. What's worse, the back of it is larger than the cover, both made out of the same cheap rubber material, meaning the two get stuck together and it's simply impossible to open the cover with a single motion. I should have stuck with my instincts, thinking that a molded piece of rubber shouldn't cost 10% of the price of a hyped up tablet... returned it.

    Its great if you never take it off and try it again.

    • Written by from San Antonio

    love the case brand new. it fit the ipad well and snugly. however i removed it once and when i tried it again it had stretched to the point that the spine would allow the side of the ipad to come out of the case whenever the flap was folded back and i was holding it in my left hand portrait-wise it was in no danger of coming out but this was annoying as a case should fit better and retain its shape. after a bit of use the flap stared becoming crooked. do love the magnet but not happy overall.

    Good color and protective

    • Written by from Aurora

    I bought the dark grey colored smart case and it very nice. The color looks really good and even if it gets some dirt or anything like that on it, it is barely noticeable and can be wiped off easily.
    I was once holding my iPad with this case and suddenly it fell out of my hands and hit the tile floor screen faced. When I picked it up, there was not crack or anything on it. This is a really nice case and is worth the money! :)

    Waste of Money

    Case is fine. Just doesn't work as a stand. My Ipad keeps falling down.

    Best case available

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    This case is sturdy enough to protect against shock or scratching, but not overly bulky. The material of the case gives it a good grip, but surprisingly, doesn't get dirty easily or absorb dirt and other substances. The smart cover makes it convenient to stand up vertically or prop up horizontally. It does its job--it protects the iPad without adding to much bulk or heft. One thing to be careful of--the felt underside of the cover can get dirty easily, so be aware of the surface you set it on when the cover is open.

    Good case, great iPad protection

    • Written by from Little Rock

    I like this case. It fits my iPad (3rd gen) snuggly and offers ample protection. The magnetic closure putting the iPad to sleep/wake works great. The cover looks fantastic (I got the dark gray). The Apple logo on the back is a nice touch. The case was "stiff" at first, making the stand aspect awkward, but that has worked out as I've used it. In full upright positiion, there is not a lot of slant to the position - which can make viewing difficult. There are several ways to fold the cover/stand though, for differing viewing angles. The only reason this doesn't get a "5" is because you can't rotate the iPad - so the only viewing orientation with the stand is landscape/horizontal. For $10 more dollars, I would get the case over the cover. I rate this a definite "buy".

    I was very impressed with the Smart Cover that I had before, but this is just brilliant. Fit is excellent, it's hard wearing and of a slimline design that complements the iPad 2 perfectly.

    This case is the type I wanted from the very beginning. Ipad 2 and 3.
    I would get every color if they were a little less expensive. But for one of them the price is okay but I really wish Apple would lower the price.
    Perfect fit! Great texture! Protection is excellent with this case.
    Over all excited!!

    This is the Smart Case...not the Smart Cover.

    • Written by from Ashburn

    First, to the reviewer that complained that this only protects the screen - you bought the wrong product. That is the Smart Cover. This is the Smart Case and it covers the screen, sides and back of your iPad.

    With that said, I have been using a combination of the Smart Cover and a third party snap case for the back. That left much of my sides exposed and did not cover the corners very well. This case has a better fit and feel. It has better coverage. And, although it is not important, it displays the Apple logo on the back. Again, not important...but I do like that look a little better than a plain back. I wish they offered this Smart Case in the leather finishes (I do like the feel of my black leather Smart Cover), or a few more masculine colors (distressed brown, royal or navy blue, deeper red/maroon).
