Four stars base on price as well

Keep in mind review is based on item with free shipping costing less than $10. The color is true to the pictures and overall quality was to me above average. A very faint odor, that I noticed. A few minor blemishes along the corners and edges of the iPad holder section.
The interior grooves are fairly deep but do get small dents when in portrait mode from the edges of the unit resting on the grooves. As others said the first back groove is fairly useless in portrait mode but is useable if you are careful and realize that it will fall and be ready, lol.
The exterior faux leather is good quality and easy to keep clean. Feels good in the hand. The closure strap is nice and feels useful to last a while. The unit turns on and off with the opening and closing of the covers...I had no issues.
I find this product and I am certain this will pertain to all color variations of this product is fairly remarkable for the quality. I think it should stand up to normal usage. If you expect to treat case roughly then yes it will start to peel and come apart but otherwise it is sturdy enough for daily usage. The iPad sits well at all four corners. Folding the unit backwards unto itself is not advisable because that will cause the middle seam to wear down quickly and eventually tear. The unit is designed in my opinion to be used either flat without bending backwards onto itself or as a stand. Love it overall and mostly for the cost.
I think given the cost, quality especially with the iPad fitting into the case may be subject to hit or miss but I seem to have lucked out on a unit where it fits at all corners well.
