Just wanted to post my thoughts as I just got one from eBay. I got a generic smart cover from eBay a few days ago in red. Works FANTASTIC. Be careful, some of the ones on eBay don't work on the new iPad. I had a friend who ordered from a different eBay seller and got one that doesn't sleep or wake her new iPad. She's ok with it but saw mine and is thinking about ordering a new one from the person I ordered from.
Hope that helps!

I have the black leather and looks great - 6 months of use. Leather ages, and it's on par with other leather items. I love the thinness, but I do a lot of reading and watching in bed, and the smart cover is horrible for that. I have several cases and switch back and forth depending my needs.

Leather is great, I used to own the plastic when I was with ipad2 but I decided to go with the light brown leather one. It looks great on the ipad. Leather is supposed to look good as it wears off, I hope this is the case.
By the way I cannot stand any other case for the ipad except the smart cover.
I have many cases and three smart covers.. Love them

Amazon mate. Although its quite pricey at £30 I feel it's the best one for the job. I don't expect it to save my iPad when dropped but I can slide it around on a table without the worry of scratching it.Originally Posted by dhevans_6
