    Works great!

    I really like this case. Fits great and protects the iPad well yet still maintains the slim profile.

    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.

    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! :)

    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.

    Owned both faith restored in Apple

    • Written by from Seattle

    Owned both case/covers and the smart case is so amazing this is my first online review. I work as a big four auditor and travel about thirty weeks a year and this case is a game changer. Does not fall off and is sleek thin and easy to use. Finally a case I can travel with and use. Thank you Apple

    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.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    • Written by from Corvallis

    The color wasn't my first choice, but after buying the light gray one and owning it for an hour I started to foresee how dirty and screwed up it'd get. However, this dark gray one is amazing and looks even better in person than in the pictures. Also, it's not going to get marked up as easilly or noticeably from normal wear and tear. The functionality is perfect, the strength and durability seem really good as well, and it's comfortable to hold in your hands. Also, I have found it very versatile, with tons of different ways to prop it up at different angles--at least more than the pictures describe. I have a 30-degree-or-so angle that I'm loving right now. All in all, I love everything about the case except for the price. But I can still see the amount of designing that went in to making this great product, so I can't get too mad (though it'd be better if made in USA). I have seen the others: my partner has a leather In-case case and it's nowhere near as stylish, comfortable to hold, or people friendly, if you ask me.

    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.

    Best Case to Buy!

    • Written by from Primghar

    I had the smart cover for my iPad and loved how it turned my iPad on and off and worked as a stand. I didn't like how it only protected the front. So I bought a hard plastic snap shield protector for the back so it wouldn't get all scratched up. Once the smart case came out I ordered one the next day. I love the fit and the colors. It still works great as a stand and it wakes up the iPad and puts it to sleep. I also got mine personalized which is a nice option. One comment is the red is a little brighter than the red for the smart cover but not bad at all. I would reccommend this case to anyone who wants full protection of their iPad.

    • Written by from Livonia

    I spent several hours researching cases for my iPad. After reading and watching reviews on the Smart Case, I decided to try it out. I can not be more impressed. Many people say that it doesn't quite fit properly, but mine fits like a glove! I couldn't be happier with my choice. And by the way, I LOVE MY IPAD!!!

    Well to be honest I was pleasantly surprised with the smart case. Fits my new 4th gen great. I had the otterbox defender on my 1st gen and it was bulky but offered great protection, but I thought how many times did I actually drop it? Prob twice in 2 years from 3 ft tops. So I decided to try this out due to the thinness of it and it has been great. I keep seeing post of unfinished edges cutting off hands and the cover ripping off finger nails while trying to open (sarcasm). People will complain about everything. Facts: if you carry your ipad around all day and you have the risk of dropping on concrete then yes this case prob isn't for you, but if you are looking for a sleek, thin, decently priced case for average use buy it.

    Very Pleased

    • Written by from Manalapan

    This case fits my iPad (4th generation) quite well and was real easy to insert. All the openings line up properly and the iPad sleeps and wakes as expected. The feel of the material is also very nice. The color is not as dark as pictured (a little more industrial looking than expected), but that's a small point. While I believe this product should probably be priced less, I'm still very pleased and glad I bought it.

    Perfect Fit - Tested on iPad 2 and iPad 4

    • Written by from Dunwoody

    Not sure what all the bad reviews are about...

    Fits my brand new iPad 4 perfectly. I tested it on my wife's iPad 2, and it also fits perfectly. You have to finesse the cover's rubber perimeter around the iPad when initially setting it in, which can take a few minutes, but once it's on it's perfect.

    Superior to the smart cover because it protects the back casing of the iPad, plus you don't have to deal with the whole magnet thing. Contrary to other reviews, the fit is tight enough and still incorporates the form and function of all the iPad's features (small perforated holes where the speaker is, camera hole, etc.

    The name says it all - it's a smart case, and it's only $10 more than the smart cover. You can't go wrong.

    Love It

    • Written by from MORRISVILLE

    I recently bought the iPad 3 and this case. I think it's fantastic, it's much better than just the Smart Cover, because it covers the back as well. The front has a nice microfiber built in, but be aware, over time it will leave the fold marks on the screen, so a separate cleaning cloth is recommended. I slide the cover across instead of opening it like a book so the cover cleans off the screen as I'm opening.

    Overall, I'd say if you like the apple brand and don't mind the cost, I can't recommend it enough. There are other cases that might suit your needs, but this is a fantastic base covering, then for me, I carry my iPad in a Targus carrying case where I keep the extra cloth, wallet, pack of gum, pens, notebook, etc...

    A pretty amazing case!

    • Written by from Chattanooga

    I love the iPad 3 smart case it works amazingly and still keeps it super thin. I got a case before this but it was horrible. The smart cover lock feature never worked properly, so I thought why not just buy one from Apple because they never mess up plus it's there product. I got one and it is one of the best cases there is. Plus not to mention the nice look of the back and the front with the apple sign and the volume control.

    • Written by from Elizabeth

    Just bought the new iPad in replacement of my first generation iPad. I received a lot of criticizing for the purchase but who cares what people think anyway right? But one thing everyone did like was my dark grey smart case. It might be the best case the new iPad could have; just like the original black iPad case for the first generation. Get the case! Go for it

    Good Quality Product/Looks Great

    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.

    Perfect iPad Case

    • Written by from Moscow

    A drastic improvement over the iPad Smartcover! This case fits snugly and provides full-body protection without sacrificing any of the natural sleekness of the device. I bought it for my New iPad (3) and could not be happier with it. Others have complained about the cover not being flush with the edge of the iPad but I have have not had any problems grasping the cover to pull it up. In fact, the edge of the cover remains new looking much longer because it is slightly recessed from the outer edge. The dark gray holds up to being stuffed in my briefcase extremely well. Big fan!
