    This cover is exactly as described, I chose the leather cover primarly for looks, it's clean and does everything that Apple claimed. At [$] the price is a little steep, but I still bought it. It definately protects the screen from getting scratched. My only complaint is that it will leave some marks or smudges where the horizontal mats lay on the screen. They are easily wiped off so it's not a big deal. Overall, it's a fantastic product and accessory for my 64 GB Ipad 2 (3G).

    Apple should have done something similar to the original fold over case instead of this glorified magnet cover. Slides off in key board mode, when flipped so it stands up, the inside is what is on the surface you place the unit on and when closing it may transfer debris to the screen. Does not protect the back at all, like the original either. If you have the need for a stylus, better get a pocket protector as there is no place to put the stylus. (On the original, you could clip it to the hole or fold over). I kept my old case, which holds the magnetic cover and the unit very nicely, but a pain when needing to use it quickly.

          Comments about Apple iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad 3 (Leather ,Navy):

          After much researching, decided the company that can design the incredible iPad 3 can also be relied on to design the best screen protection for it. Why go for a third party solution? I would have bought Apple's back cover, too, if it had been released when I made this purchase, but this protects the screen perfectly without bulk or weight. Extremely well made, sophisticated color, good support when opened. As Steve Jobs so simply said, "It just works."

                        This cover is exactly as described, I chose the leather cover primarly for looks, it's clean and does everything that Apple claimed. At [$] the price is a little steep, but I still bought it. It definately protects the screen from getting scratched. My only complaint is that it will leave some marks or smudges where the horizontal mats lay on the screen. They are easily wiped off so it's not a big deal. Overall, it's a fantastic product and accessory for my 64 GB Ipad 2 (3G).

                        Comments about iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad 3 (Leather ,Navy):

                        The magnets are a nice addition to the cover but I prefer the case made for the original iPad. That case protected the entire device. This cover only protects the front of the iPad 2.
