    Hi guy's got my iPad2 and red leather case, my wife took over from me in queue so I never actually saw cover till I got home from work, the thing is it was all hyped up by the manager this was cover to have and to be honest I'm taking back today as I'm not a lover think £60 is a lot for so little protection.

    Using the smart cover is not about protection.

    Then what is it about? A semi-usable stand and off switch?

    Its main purpose is definitely a screen protector but protects little else.

    It certainly is for me. I can lay it face down when not in use with no worries, and when it's sitting on a table face up I don't have to be concerned about my cat walking and sitting on the bare glass.

    The stand feature is a very practical option.

    I am with you. Your description matches how I use my red leather cover. For traveling I put my iPad with sleeve attached into a 'Kroo' brown leather envelope case that was made for a 10" netbook. Works perfect.

    Love my red smart cover

    and my iPad2 with smart cover attached slips neatly into the Saddleback Leather iPad sleeve if you want to protect both front and back.

    Hey Ive got questions for the red cover owners:

    Do you own the white ipad2? If so, does the red leather bleed or leave a red residue onto the white housing?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I have a red smart cover and a white iPad 2. No bleeding and no issues with the cover. It adds a richness to the already unique white iPad IMHO.

    I have a black leather smart case on a black iPad 2 (both colors have the same glass on top) and there is no bleeding and no issues. Of course the leather side never touches the face of the iPad anyway.

    Yea I know they both have the same screen and yes the leather side never touches the screen, however on the red cover both sides are red. Some has said that this red material has rubbed off onto their white devices. So I was just wondering from the acutal owners who had both red covers with white devices how there's looked. In your case black on black, of course its a non- issues.

    The 6th review was one of the ones that had me concerned, plus I read it somewhere else too.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    It is impossible for the iPad bezel to get stained, because it is covered by glass. This is true for both the black and white version.

    What can happen and apparently did happen for the six reviewer is, that the cover itself looses it's color.

    Only the bezel is black, most of the display is not. I have no black stains anywhere. And I can assure you that I have no black residue or oil stains on my fingers after hauling the iPad around in the black leather smart case for the last couple of weeks.

    Maybe the red cases are different.

    I picked up a black leather one from Griffen at Best Buy made like the one you linked to. Quite happy with it. I wanted more protection than the smart cover offered.

    I want the red one but it's 2-3 week wait unless you want to buy from eBay and those losers who are overcharging to make a fast buck...I picked up a cream leather and it feels sooo much nicer than my grey poly cover!
