    This cover has the quality feel of Apple. The iPad fits snugly into the case making it easy to handle. As others have pointed out, it is pricey, but it is made of leather and even may be kid skin, because it feels very soft and light. After paying over $400 for my iPad mini, I think it would be an insult to put this device into anything less than a quality cover.

    The design of the cover makes it easy to use your iPad mini without ever having to take it out of the cover. The on/off is easy to depress and the charging slot is easily accessible. Also, the cover when closed automatically puts the device into sleep mode. The only thing I can't comment on is how well this product will stand up to use as I have only had it a short while.

    You won't go wrong with this product.

    I still cannot understand why the Smart Case for IPad mini is significantly more expensive than the one for "classical" IPad. Apple is really not fair on this. But overall, this is good product, great touch feeling and nice color.
    But I would not buy it again, at this price.

      Great protection for our iPad mini. Great looking too and it shuts the iPad off. Would recommend over other,cheaper cases.

          Fits my iPad mini Retina perfectly. Nice Flourescent Yellow color that won't get lost easily. Does everything it is supposed to do. I have had another leather Apple iPad cover. It has worn in nicely.

            Experience and Value at B&H Store

            By John Prince DreamFire

            from Manhattan, NYC

            Comments about iPad mini Retina Smart Case (Black):

            I dropped in B&H only for window shopping but I was impressed by the width and depth of their inventory, professionalism of their employees and the aggressively discounted pricing. I brought the much needed iPad mini leather case from B&H and enjoy using it. This beautifully crafted product from Apple improves the overall iPad experience. It helps you to enjoy your kindle books or the wall st journal while your hands are busy stabilizing yourself in a subway. A must buy for an iPad user. John Prince DreamFire

            This case gives good protection for the front and back and the folding top cover gives useful propping at an angle.

            I think this is over priced but seems to be the best of the available cases and it looks great!

            light and attractive cover

                  I already have the Logitech cover with keyboard, which is perfect for holding the iPad at an angle.
                  Since it adds to the weight, I wanted the lightweight Smartcase as an alternative when traveling.
                  My only gripe is that the Smartcase does not hold well when the back is folded to allow working on the iPad.

                  Beautiful smart case. Fits my iPad mini and protects it both front and back. Very good choice to protect your device. Nice selection of colors. I chose the black case to match my space grey iPad. It's thin and lightweight so it does not add bulk to the iPad.

                  Comments about iPad mini Retina Smart Case (Black):

                  The case is very thin, which I like. It looks great and seems fairly durable for being leather. If I had one complaint about it, it is that the cover when it folds into a triangular shape to act as a low stand for the iPad is not that stable and only holds the iPad at a very low angle.
