The red definitely (IMO) looks great as it gets the inevitable wear marks and scratches. A little (very little) Meltonian clear polish will keep it fresh and happy.

In all honesty though, smart cover is a preference. None are better than the next. It's simply a color and some material. Leather or Polycarbonate(I think) . The only gripe with the smart cover I have is that it leaves black marks on the aluminum of the iPad and give NO protection what so ever to the back.

I've an orange one and think it compliments the white rather nicely. A bit Creamsicle looking, but I like it.

This would be my next choice after red. I still may pick it up. What do you guys use to protect the back if your only using the smart cover?

I have a black leather smart cover with the black iPad. I really wanted the red leather but there was a shortage for a while. For the back protection I have the Belkin case I got from Best Buy. Other cases that are compatible with the smart cover are coming out. I think I might be purchasing the Zero Chroma case at the end of June.

There aren't many which is a surprise considering apple knew there wasn't any back protection. And a complaint I have is where the magnetic cover connects to the iPad it leaves like black residue on there and I dislike this. Yes it wipes off but I fear it will eventually scratch it.

I bought an orange Switcheasy Coverbuddy to protect the back. It fits perfectly (was designed to work w the Smart Cover and has all the necessary cut outs) and the color matches exactly. I'm quite happy with it.

You should get the polyesters instead. Any poly color! Leather ain't good because color wears out in a few days. I got gray which looks good to match the aluminum back of my iPad 2 :)

I got the Red Leather smart cover on a black iPad and have sent for a clear back cover so the Apple can be seen. Sad I know ! But who cares ! It's beautiful..."
