    At first I wasn't sure about it but after a few days I've grown to really like mine!

    I think it's pretty darn ingenious myself. Here's the quick pros and cos, but I'm switching it up:

    Cons:
    Sometimes the pad slips around on it's hinges when I'm holding it fully opened "pinned" to the back.
    Pros:
    It's thin and unobtrusive!

    It uses it's own physical make-up/attributes (the 4 folding panels) to make two separate and autonomous stands (flat for typing and upright for movie panel mode)!!

    It turns the Ipad ON automatically and instantaneously when you open it!!! How cool is that?!

    I bought the leather variety; it's totally worth what I paid for it. :)

    But I do have to ask. When I DO have it on (I'll call it) "standby" instead of turned completely off -- and BTW, I CAN even hear Yahoo email messages coming in -- does it eat up more batter power than from a complete turn off/shutdown? I figure it must. If so, to what extent?

    I can't complain. It does the job. Now I just need a skin for the rear.

    I'm interested in one, but I'm not looking to drop 40 bucks on one. :-/

    Yes, the price was the first negative impression I had of the case, too.

    Man this appears to be a hot topic. I'm very happy with my leather smart cover.

    It is true - accessories are highly personal decisions, far more than most people realize.

    I enjoy using the brown leather cover and am glad to have spend the extra money for a more neutral colored case.

    The main problem is when putting the cover on quickly, the cover clings to the top of the screen bezel, rather than the side.
