    Serves its purpose

    • Written by from Garden Grove

    I have had 3 different cases and one Smart Cover for my iPad 2. This is my favorite so far. While it doesn't have the stand capabilities as many of the 3rd party cases available, it is sleek, slim, and protects my iPad. I dislike the bulkiness of the cases out there and the Smart Cover, while it was neat, just didn't assure me that my iPad was protected.

    The Smart Case as a stand still has some opportunities for improvement, but I have found that it works just fine on a flat, smooth surface when the cover is folded in the tightest triangle possible. When folding the cover, because of the magnetic capabilities of the Case, sometimes if one is not paying close attention, the cover is capable of folding into a loose triangle which does not allow the proper angle and may cause the iPad to fall over.

    Front is ok just like smartcase but the back smells like model airplane glue. Maybe it will fade away, maybe it wont. In my case I am returning it cuz I'm sensitive to these things. YMMV.

    Perfect for Ipad

    • Written by from Tayga

    I have tried many chineese folios but this case is the best.
    This case fits perfect for my ipad 3. It is light and material is realy durable.
    It is much more comfortable that folios and other hard cases. But it depends how you prefer to use your ipad. If you like to use it withot a case at all, it is better to buy a small bag.

    Protects, useful, and thin

    • Written by from Cary

    I'm using the 3rd gen iPad and it fits perfectly; ports and buttons are spot on. Works just like the Smart Cover, but also adds protection for the back. Excellent protection of the edges, and covers them to hide any damage you already have. The iPad does not move around in the case....it's a nice tight it.

    The one thing they could improve is that the front cover doesn't stay closed if you hold the iPad face down toward the floor. Possibility due to the raised lip around the edges of the iPad...prevents the cover from contacting the screen. Screen still goes to sleep if you close the cover.

    One last thing...would be nice if they had black...

    Ouch! Sharp edges

    • Written by from Mendota Heights

    This form fitting case is really quite well designed except for one aspect - sharp , hard rubber/polyurethane edges all around. By sharp I mean that when you are lying down and you balance it on your body, the edges really dig in and it's uncomfortable. The same when you are holding it firmly in your hands - unnecessarily sharp. Please round these with the next model.

    Simply wonderful. I just find it funny that the charger port hole is still big for the 30 pin charger.

    Good Quality Product/Looks Great

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    Just received this smart cover case for my IPad which is replacing a smart cover. The case fits well and is good quality. I like this case due to its quality and protection of the back of the iPad.

    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.
