    Good screen protector but .....

    • Written by from Aliso Viejo

    I love the simplicity and ease of attachment. It provides good protection of the screen from accidental scratches, etc. It also provides you with something comfortable to hold when using it. BUT, it leaves the screen with dirt, dust, or grimy marks. It just bugs me to see those smudges. It goes against what Apple says (i.e. "its microfiber lining keeps your iPad screen clean" LOL!!!).

    Excellent Color & Case

    • Written by from GREAT NECK

    I agree with Christopher S from Burlington, this is a great cover, it is not a case. I have not had any mechanical problems whatsoever; it works as promised. As added protection you can purchase from Incase a neoprene sleeve - it goes hand in hand.

    Good idea but not up to Apple usablilty expectations

    • Written by from Los Altos Hills

    Hard to read with cover on, falls over easily when standing.

    Magnet attachment let's go too easily.

    I am taking mine back and getting a cover that is usable.

    Very disappointed

    • Written by from Fredonia

    We bought this with the ipad and it has shown some wear as expected on the poly part. However, the magnetic part has worn through the plastic creating a sharp edge and scratching the ipad itself. We've never had such a bad apple product before.

    More useful than I thought

    • Written by from Everett

    I just upgraded from the original iPad to the new one, and I always thought the Smart Cover was kinda goofy.

    But now that I have one, I realize just how useful it is. Sure, it wakes the iPad up and puts it to sleep, and it serves as a multi-position stand.

    But the thing I love most is that when you flip it open, it protects the back of the iPad -- and makes it easier to grip! It's truly one of the more clever iPad accessories.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Burlington

    Personally, I think this is a great cover. If you have half a brain, you realize by the name this is a *cover*, not a *case*, which seems to be a reason for a lot of these poor ratings. If you want a case to fully protect your iPad, this is not what you're looking for. It's excellent for a quick glass protector, simple stand, and even a screen cleaner.

    I'm rough on electronics, but this cover works great for my needs. When I store it I have the cover on, in my laptop bag, with the aluminum side against a soft wall (so not to scratch the iPad with other loose items).

    I've never had any mechanical issue with the cover. It's stayed magnetized and haven't had any problem with the hinges. I only replaced it because I wanted the new dark gray over the blue which I purchased with the iPad 2 when it was first released.

    iPad Smart Cover

    • Written by from Perryopolis

    Very disappointed. It did work well for several months. Then it began to fall off frequently. Then the hinge broke. Not to mention it started to look dingy. I replaced it with a cheaper version which never seemed to turn it off. Any ideas for a cover that protects better and turns it off?

    Polyurethane pink cover

    • Written by from Rochester

    This is a great cover for your iPad2. It goes on easily and folds back for a good grip to hold the iPad on your thighs when sitting in a chair. Also it rolls back easily to use on a table for typing. It cleans up clean as new with a wet soapy rag. No color has come off mine and I've washed it several times. I would not hesitate to recommend this cover. I do think they are over priced and never on sale. But no alternative cover will put the iPad to sleep.

    Leather - red

    • Written by from Salisbury

    Whilst I appreciate this is a really clever idea I have to say I am disappointed with mine. The first one arrived and was grubby and scratched and I went through the long phone call to have it returned (the queue was long but the lady was really helpful that I spoke to when I did get through). They sent a replacement over night and have arranged to collect the old one. The second one arrived and it has two damage marks in it - without me even getting it out of the box. I can't even be bothered to send it back. I don't think the leather will be very durable and I am sure it marks really easily. Can't comment on the polyurethane but I think I might have been better with the cheaper version - maybe it would be a bit more durable.

    Smart Cover not So Smart

    • Written by from Georgetown

    Since it looks like Apple is committed to this cover for a third generation, I should tell you they are not really worth the money or very useful. The cover stays closed as long as you don't move the IPad too much, put it flat in an attache, the cover is not a longtime solution to being used as a stand, the back is unprotected, and maybe if you usednitnprimarily for gaming it would be suitable. However, in an academic or school environment it is in adequate.

    Also, your portfolio with keyboard is not for real typing, typing letters, papers, reports, etc they keyboard does not lay flat and it bounces every time you use it. Very disappointing.

    Nice Product!!!

    • Written by from Primghar

    I purchased the smart cover when I got my iPad and was disappointed to find that I needed to purchase a back cover along with the smart cover. The smart cover is great, all though I think that Apple shoud make a hard-snap-cover for the back. The smart cover, I found, picks up alot of small dust particles and puts them on the iPad display area. The cover works well with the iPad and looks nice and is well made. I have found the dark grey polyurethane, shows scratches. I would recommend that if you do get the smart cover you should go with the leather model, even though it is more expensive, but worth it. Over all it is an average product.

    Smart cover

    • Written by from dearborn

    First of all it's not a case it's a cover. It does what it's suppose to, protects the screen and looks good while doing. Is it worth $40.00 dollars? No,but if you buy a cheap imatation it does not last at all. I think it's an awesome cover!

    Great magnetic hinges; easy to use

    • Written by from Rancho Palos Verdes

    I've had this cover for nearly a year and love it. The magnetic hinges are fool proof and click into place cleanly. The cover is robust and the flip panels create a wide variety of stands and ways to hold onto the i-Pad. I would miss this cover now that I've gotten so used to it. I recommend this cover without reservation.

    Not so smart cover

    • Written by from tonopah

    I bought the orange smart cover for my ipad 2. It worked and looked nice for about a month. Then I could see areas of orange rubbing off. If you use a damp cloth to wipe it clean, the color comes off too. I always have this cover on my ipad and when I travel or put it up for the day, it is inside of a super soft and protective envelope style cover. The cover gets weak and is harder to fold it up to use as a stand. It falls a lot. I would research other covers out there before buying this one. Mine looks horrible after 5 months.

    Perfection in design

    • Written by from Lewisville

    The iPad 2 Smart Cover does everything it is advertised to do and it does it FLAWLESSLY. And contrary to what another user states on their review, this cover has never, ever put one single scratch on my iPad, so do not worry about that at all. In my experience, that claim is totally unfounded. And I pull off and put back on my smart cover often because I use the iPad charging dock. The cover goes on and comes off so pleasantly easy. It realigns perfectly and harmlessly every time.
    I bought this cover 6 months ago, thinking I'd probably eventually "upgrade" to the leather smart cover when this one began to wear. 6 months later and my smart cover still looks and performs like new. And the polyurethane feels so good to the touch ... kind of like soft, brushed suede leather. The leather version sounds nice, but now I would never part with my polyurethane version (I have the light grey color which blends beautifully with the silver back metal of the iPad).

    doesn't work; will be returned

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Simply put, this is misleadingly described, overpriced and will be returned. If it worked the way it is described, I would have been happy to pay the high cost because it looks nice and is a good idea . The side magnetic bar is supposed to snap right onto the side (one would think in much the same way the magnetized power cords do) but it does not. I tested it on other metals objects around the home, and it does have a magnetic pull against those surfaces, but it does not cling AT ALL to the ipad or to the surface of my MacBook (also an aluminum covered body). Thanks for wasting me another trip to the store (so as to obtain a refund) Apple!

    Amazing Cover

    • Written by from Ithaca

    I love the "multi-use" screen cover. It's so helpful to have to have a fingerprint cleaner and a stand, all the magnet hasn't worn out and i've had it for 6 months. great product and worth the money.
