I only had this case for about a month and all parts are falling apart.

The Back Gap - There is a gap between the back of the iPad and the plastic of the case.
The bookstand is very functional and appears to be durable and well constructed.

I have revised my rating from a Four Star rating because of durability issues.

After only a few weeks this case has started to fall apart after normal use (by normal use, I mean that I baby the iPad)! The glue that holds the microfiber cover onto the plastic shell started to come loose. At first it looked like little bubbles under the microfiber but now nearly the whole back cover is separated from the shell. This makes me worried that it will slip and cause me to drop the iPad. Suspecting that I may just have a defective product, I searched online and to my surprise there are others with this problem. Amazon doesn't allow links but it's easy to find the discussion boards I found.

I will once again revisit this review if I receive a replacement BOOKSTAND case that doesn't exhibit these same problems. Otherwise, check my reviews to see if I have found decent a folio case for my iPad.

This is the second problem I have had with Macally in purchasing this case. I originally ordered it from the Macally website because it was "In Stock" only to find out a week later that it wasn't in stock and my order was automatically canceled. It was frustrating at the time but it would have saved me a lot of trouble if I had moved on to another case!

- Previous Four Star Review -

I originally purchased Apple's cover but was very dissatisfied with it. Unfortunately, there haven't been many other covers that replace the utilitarian functionality of that case. Then, I spotted the Bookstand case on Macally's website. The only problem was that it wasn't in production yet. Well, the wait is finally over and this case is wonderful. The typing angle is better and sharper than the Apple case.

A flurry of iPad stands and cases have been hastily released following the debut of the iPad. Some are okay others are just disappointing. I don't like plastic, silicone or leather "framing" my iPad (nor do I like it on my iPhone). By this, I refer to any material overhanging onto the glass screen in order to hold the device in the case. Macally got this BookCase right - there is a plastic back the size of the iPad with small rounded corners that are made to just clip onto the SIDES of the iPad, not wrapped around the face. The plastic is covered with a suede-like material resulting in a nice soft touch. The interior of the case is another nice, soft material. The whole thing is pleasant to touch and hold.
When closed, it's like a notebook, the case covers the iPad except for the aluminum edges. You can open it and fold the cover back on itself so that it's flat. The little leathetette flap sticks out but I haven't found this to be in the way. You can also fold the cover in the middle where it is scored and tuck the flap into it's matching holder. That way, you have a secure, slanted stand that it is comfortable for typing. Folded that way also allows you to stand it up on edge for displaying slideshows.
I bought the gray version as the black one was not yet available at the time. Since it is fabric (or similar), it looks like it might get dirty over time as the iPad is something that is in very frequent use, but so far, I really, really like this case/stand.

This is one of those items where you read the reviews and think it can't be that bad. Well, it's actually not 'that' bad. It does what it's supposed to do.

However you can't really see what garbage the materials are until you actually have it in your hands. It's made out of practically the same materials as a cat toy - felt (actually microfiber) on flimsy cheap plastic - which I guarantee will crack and the spine will break after being open and closed often.

The cover is actually microfiber covered cardboard.

Since I work in manufacturing and deal with Chinese merchandise everyday, this didn't cost more than $3 to make. So if you're paying more than $15 for this, then you should feel ripped off every time you handle your iPad.

Fortunately I bought this at Fry's and I can return it when I get a decent folio.

I feel ripped off for the price that I had paid for this case, as it began falling apart after 2 weeks. Now, with 3 weeks of use, the hinge fabric is completely unattached as shown in two photos that I'm posting here. One shot shows the iPad in the case with the cover folded back, a normal position for holding in any orientation. In another photo you can see that a thin piece of microfiber fabric that is stitched on the cover side, is simply glued, rather than stitched on the iPad side. The glue fails and you're left with this sticky piece of fabric (and sticky hinge).

Until this happened, I'd been reasonably happy with the case. The fabric feels like suede, and so grips well in the hand for carrying, and the case protects the iPad well.

The other problem with this case is the brown plastic closure strap. It fits in the closure loop (see photo) fine for the closed-book position. But, it it began bubbling after a week and is too wide to fit into the loop for the angled viewing position without using two hands and a lot of forcing (see photo).

This could be a great product, but I feel it was rushed to market.

A caution about all of the various cases with this style (mimicking the Apple case) is that when open, you place the surface that protects the screen onto the table, grass, or whatever you are resting the iPad on .. and so any dirt or liquids on that surface will be transferred to the screen when you close the case. So, brush it off before closing. ;-)
