    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 was just told by someone at Navitech that they have reason to believe that these covers do not support the sleep/wake function and they are thus recalling them. They have two other covers which they claim work but these are not smart covers (please let me be known that I have NO connection with this company, I'm just a guy who ordered from 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.
