    Does not work as advertised. Does not put Pad to sleep with magnetic closur

    What's wrong with this product?.....the design and quality of fit. I have tried this product twice and even tested in two Apple stores. It needs to be pulled off the shelf because it does not perform as stated on the box. The magnetic closure DOES NOT put the iPad to sleep. After "settling" for this product because I liked the feature of storing the pencil, I am returning it to the store. The fit around the iPad has become sloppy and makes it difficult to plug in the charging cord and ear pods. I'd rather have nothing than struggle with this product that no one seems to want take action to fix. I have been in touch with STM. Customer service just replies, "If it doesn't work, return it". On my last visit to Apple store, it was still being sold on the shelf.

    Needs improvement made for better function.

    While this STM Dux Shell Case certainly looks attractive, the power button is so hard to operate due to the shells' unit button which is supposed to be completely functional. However it feels unyielding and so stiff enough that I have to use enormous pressure from my index finger to forcefully press down it down in order to operate my 9.7 inch iPad Pro. This. however, hurts my finger so I usually have to turn it on using the power cable supplied, plugged in, either to a wall outlet or to a battery pack. I wish it was tested by Apple computer first before it was released to the public for purchasing.

    Great Case - does a great job

    I bought this months ago (not from Apple) it's tough (my iPad gets some real knocks) its light and the keyboard works with it a treat. My iPad is used for work 7 days a week it gets knocked and bumped a lot, I need the pencil to be held securely but easy to get to, the keyboard needs to function every couple of hours and it all works together a treat. I've tried many, but this is the best!

    Less than ideal.

    Protectsthe back and edges of the iPad OK and can store a pencil. But thee's no protection for the screen and neither the smart cover or smart keyboad work properly with it. The case lets you connect the smart keyboard or cover but prevents the cover or keyboard's magnet from connecting properly with the iPad so they don't stay shut but flap around loosely.

    It also prevents closing the smart cover/keyboard from putting the iPad automatically to sleep whn closed.
