      Comments about Apple iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad (Polyurethane, Light Gray):

      The only downside to this cover is that now I hate all other tablet covers. So easy to remove, wakes up the screen, doubles as a stand in two positions and I use mine to clean the finger prints off the screen. Wish I could get a smart cover for the Nexus 7.

      Comments about Apple iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad (Polyurethane, Light Gray):

      Works as advertized, nice cover and folded provides support for iPad. Magnetic hinges fit nicely. I like the way it wakes up iPad when it is lifted.
      It seems it collects dust and it makes finger grease marks on iPad screen along its folds, but that's not visible when iPad screen is on.

      Comments about Apple iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad (Polyurethane, Light Gray):

      The smart cover is made by Apple and is designed to attach magnetically to the left side of the ipad and the front flap covers the screen. It is extremely handy because it can fold into a triangle that allow you to set it in different positions: for typing, viewing, or as a photoframe.

      Here comes the flaw I found with this cover. The microfiber side directly touches the screen, and when you fold it into a triangle, the microfiber side is now external. This causes a few issues. When you lay it on any surface, it will eventually get dirty and transfer it to your screen. My advice would be to lay it on a clean surface that is not full of dust or particles. Or you can try cleaning the microfiber side with a vacuum with a hose attach or give the microfiber side a good slap with your hand to release the trapped dirt.

        Comments about Apple iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad (Polyurethane, Light Gray):

        This is a wonderful cover. I like the simplicity of it and the way it does not detract from the "sleekness" of the iPad. And yet it is *very* functional. Even though I got the black facing iPad, I went with light gray as it matches perfectly with the steel-gray of the iPad itself. Love the continuity of it!
