A note on magnets:
I use this with the iPad WiFi + 3G. Another reviewer mentioned problems with the magnet inside, which is used to hold the integrated stand, and recommended that this case be used only with the WiFi version of the iPad. First, a clarification: both iPads have a built-in compass, so if using the compass is extremely important to you, don't buy this case. While the magnet does interfere with the magnetometer, it does NOT interfere with the AGPS, data transmission, or cause damage to the iPad or any of its components. The iPad uses flash memory, not a traditional magnetic hard drive, so your data will be perfectly safe.
The leather is trimmed with a plastic lining that after time begins to separate, so I just cut the lining with a scissor where ever it separates.
This case is not intended to offer much protection should the ipad fall to the ground as there are slightly exposed corners. In fairness I do use my ipad every single day so it does get alot use, however I expected the case to last much longer than a couple of months before falling apart.

After checking out several different iPad cases, I purchased this one from my local Apple store. I was looking for a case that was simple, but which provided protection for the iPad. I also wanted it to have the feel of a book cover since I use my iPad mainly as a reading device.
Originally, I bought the Apple case; it was OK, but seemed a little thin. This one from Marware had what I was looking for. After using this case for a little while, I can confirm that it's made well, is nice to hold, and has a minimal design so there is not too much extra stuff around the iPad -- just enough to do what's necessary. Even the company name is tastefully placed in a subtle fashion on the cover. The stitching seems tight. I like that it has a holder inside, which I use to tuck in a screen-cleaning cloth.
The elastic band closure is simple and holds the case closed very well, and it stays out of the way when not in use.
The cost is in line with all the other cases out there.
The company appears to have updated this item some time in the recent past. The first one I purchased had a flap of stiff material above the docking port making it nearly impossible to insert the dock connector. I returned it to the store the same day. The sales associate and I looked at another one (apparently an updated model). Right away, we could see it had more clearance allowing the dock connector to insert easily. We also noticed that the newer model had a wider strap to hold the iPad in place. If you're purchasing this case, check that it's the updated model with the wider strap and more open area for the dock connector.
It holds the iPad very securely and the quality of the leather is nice, but it advertises that the "Folio cover allows the iPad to stand while in use," although in my experience this isn't true. On the box it shows the iPad in landscape mode sitting upright while the folio cover is folded back to form a tent-like structure. Perhaps if your surface is non-slip and your touch is light, it may stay in this position for a while, but I had no luck with it.
I'm sure that there are other, more functional covers available. And separate stands.
