    I took mine back today and got the Camera Connection Kit.. the kid at the Apple Store wasn't surprised in the least bit..

    no harm to my iPad, just black marks where the hinge dust got on it, but that was easy to just wipe off.. I just really didn't want to keep the smart cover now that I have two cases and a sleeve.. that would have been wasted money for me.. i'll actually use the camera connection kit though..

    I love how it turns the Ipad on and off but it is not worth the wear on my ipad. I’m sure someone will make a cover that will do the same thing.

    Smart cover wear

    Hi
    Had my iPad about 10days now minimal use a couple of hours each evening and the smart cover is wearing at the hinges. Should I bring it back?

    Mine has not been off in over 2 weeks and I see no signs of wear or anything else negative that could be attributed to the smart cover.

    This is making me think it is time to return mine to bestbuy and wait it out for a better option. I don't care about the "smart" function. I just want to protect it.

    I got the gray poly cover and see no wear on hinges or the ipad at all after two weeks of use. I got some transparent contact paper (3 bucks for 5 feet!) for the back which works perfectly.
