      Comments about SmartSuit Mini Ultra-Slim Snap-on Case/Stand for iPad mini (Black):

      I bought this case based on the good reviews on the B&H website. While I can't disagree with any of the reviews, I now see my personal preference would have been for a case that provides a little more edge support so that when I'm holding it like a book, I don't smear the glass with fingerprints. Furthermore, when the cover is folded behind the iPad for reading like a book, the cover is floppy in that position and gets in the way of holding it.

      Comments about SmartSuit Mini Ultra-Slim Snap-on Case/Stand for iPad mini (Black):

      This is my 3rd one of these. I have one on my mini as well as my wife's and love them. I dropped my first one on the concrete from about 4 feet on accident and it barely chipped the corner of the case so I got a new one. My mini is still flawless after the drop. The fit is perfect and slim. The front cover works great as a stand both ways. When it's more flat I just prop it up with the first fold and it stays great. I definately recomend this.

          I love it because it not only protects the screen like a smart cover would, but it also has a nice sturdy, protective case around the backside of the ipap. I really wish they'd make the same thing for the iphone 5.

              Nice light weight protective case

              Comments about SmartSuit Mini Ultra-Slim Snap-on Case/Stand for iPad mini (Black):

              Fits the ipad mini very well. Very thin and light compared to other highly regarded cases like the SwitchEasy Canvas. Only limitations are a lack of magnet to hold the front cover to the back of the case when open in a book fashion. Also no magnet to hold cover in triangle shape when folded into stand for typing/viewing. Relies on weight of ipad mini, although this does work well. Limitation is likely due to the cover having only 3 panels as compared to the full size ipad covers having 4 panels. Overall an excellent case. Highly recommended. Hard to find I'm Canada at a reasonable price. I ordered from B&H because of their service and excellent Purolator shipping to Canada option.

                Comments about SmartSuit Mini Ultra-Slim Snap-on Case/Stand for iPad mini (Black):

                I looked high and low and finally found this case. It has exactly what I was looking for - reasonably slim profile hard case back with an attached sleep cover that folds to provide a stand feature. The unit is good quality and the interior that touches the iPad is soft felt throughout. I've also purchased a neoprene case (still to arrive) - I'm hoping that the mini (with this case one) will fit within the neoprene travel case to provide the complete protection solution for travelling (ie throwing the mini into a suitcase, carry on) - this case is great for everyday use but want more "transport" protection (when potentially joostling around inside luggage, etc given that the sleep cover could open, screen could get scratched, etc). I did a ton of research before buying this specific unit (plus I tried some cheaper options ). Overall - very pleased with this product - no complaints whatsoever (unless I find out that it doesn't fit inside the travel neoprene case).

                  Quite possibly the best iPad Mini case on the market. Shame Apple didn't make the exact same case as the larger iPad, but at least there's this one. I've tried another, but this is better.

                  Microfiber lining prevents scratches to both back and screen.
                  Fits iPad mini perfectly.
                  Not bulky at all, yet protects the device on all sides.
                  Great grip and feel.
                  Magnetic cover activates wake/sleep (like Apple Smart cover)

                  This item does what it is supposed to do. Wished the cover would fit snugly like it does on the iPad3. As there is still potential for screen damage if dropped. Otherwise it would be 5/5 product.

                    For more than a month, I struggled to find a satisfactory cover for my iPad mini, until I found the SmartSuit Mini. I originally had the Apple smart cover, which is overpriced, feels a bit cheap (no leather option), only protects the front, and could result in an inadvertent iPad drop if you're mainly holding onto the cover (a bit far-fetched, but not out of the realm of possibility).

                    The SmartSuit mini is a full body protection solution. It's not leather, but still feels very durable without feeling cheap. It has magnetic power on and off with the cover (so many cases don't have this, which baffles me), and it actually fits the mini very well (many others feel like the dimensions were roughed in, which really takes away from the user experience IMHO).

                    Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a case for their new mini. Actually, I'd probably recommend the larger versions for full size ipad users. Only drawback in my opinion is they don't offer enough color options, but I probably would have gotten the black anyway.

                      This is by far my favorite iPad mini case, and I've tried quite a few! It has the oh so useful wake/sleep cover (like the Apple cover) but protects the iPad all the way around.
                      The cover itself is very thin, so your iPad still can fit in small bags, and even pockets.
                      It's style and make is very modern and well built. I bought the black one, but have see all the other colors and there's something for everyone.
                      It's so great, I actually bought two just in case something happens to the other one.
                      Highly Recommended!
