It's a very nice case, fits very well, looks good and puts the ipad mini to sleep when I close it.
David N
Also, the cover does not fold easily and does not stay folded to support the ipad while laying flat or trying to stand it up.
Paul
I got about a month of use out of it before two of the corners started to crack from the pressure (the case, not the iPad).

I ordered two of these, one in blue and one in white. Received a black one today--close enough to blue!

In my notes below, I'm comparing it to the Apple Smart Cover. I know that's not entirely fair, since the Smart Cover costs 8x as much (at this writing, with introductory pricing) but at least it provides a baseline for comparison.

Pros:
--Looks great
--Fits perfectly, all the cutouts are in the right place etc.
--About as lightweight as seems possible for its function
--Protects the back, unlike the Smart Cover
--Paid $5 with free shipping, and it is well worth that. Actually, $5 is a great bargain.
--Magnet in cover works fine for auto on/off when opening/closing
--When the front cover is folded to a triangle, it holds the ipad mini up nicely for landscape viewing. Feels as stable as the Apple Smart Cover in this position. If you're using the folded back cover to type in landscape mode, it's about as good as the Smart Cover (which is to say, IMHO, barely useful).
--3 year warranty from Poetic (if they will be around for that long)

Cons:
--When the cover is folded back flat, it doesn't make for really comfortable holding. Smart Cover is better in this regard. Edit: Cover folds back easier already with just light use.
--The front cover is nowhere near as supple as that on the Smart Cover. A little concerned that with repeated folding it may not close firm and flat over the screen.
--I'm concerned about the durability of the hinge, which is essentially cloth covered with plastic.
--The edges of the front cover look like they might delaminate. They are not sealed in the same way as the Smart Cover.
--Not exactly a con, but I don't know how much protection this will provide for dropping.

Based on the reviews, I figured this case would be amazing. Well, it arrived with two major problems: First, the upper right-hand corner of the cover had the PVC scratched off, revealing cardboard underneath. Second, the picture on the item doesn't show the sides of the cardboard but it's super notable in person that the screen cover is just cardboard covered in PVC. Also, using the cover as a stand is useless; since it's flimsy cardboard it can't hold the minuscule weight of the iPad Mini. Returning.

This case is a great find. After visiting an Apple store to look at the Smart Case, I decided that $49 would be a bit steep, as the Apple case front cover felt flimsy and cheap. I paid $4.95 for the Poetic, assuming it would be lower in quality than the Apple case, but something to hold me over until I found just the right one. I am surprised and happy to report that I won't need to look any further. This case does exactly what I want.

I especially like the sleep/wake function, and the fact that, just like Apple's version, it converts into a stand for typing. It seems to be good protection for not only the back of the iPad, but also for the screen. It is lightweight, and doesn't change the small, light feel of the device.

The case is made well, with all the buttons, camera lens, and plug port holes, speakers, and mic lined up perfectly. The material feels leather-like, which I like better than the plastic feel of the Apple Smart Case. The lining is a soft, felt-like material, as is the inside of the front cover.

This case is a great value. I have no complaints about this purchase. I ordered a second one.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: iPad Mini Verified Purchase
I had high hopes for the Poetic Slimline iPad Mini case, and was more disappointed than I can put into words. I'm honestly fuming right now. You really get what you pay for with this. Actually, this is probably worth more like $2 than $10.

1. First Frustration - iPad Mini does not fit. At all. It will not snap into place. I was wondering if it was just me, if I was just doing something wrong. But other reviewers said the same thing happened to them. So, basically, even if I liked other features of the case (I don't), it can't properly protect it or even keep it in the case.

2. Second Frustation - The case is pretty much cardboard. Admittedly, it looks quite nice when you first remove it from the wrapping. But then it slowly disintegrates...After attempting to fold it as a stand one or two times, a permanent fold in between the different flaps appears and doesn't budge back down. In other words, looking at my iPad mini right now, there is a huge gap in a spot where the new fold is, making the iPad already extremely unprotected.

3. Third Frustration - This is something I need for work. But now, because this case is not functional, I still cannot carry the iPad around and have to be extremely careful with it.

In the end, don't bother spending ten dollars on this. Just don't do it. Even if your iPad ends up fitting properly, the case itself is horrible quality and you will undoubtedly need to replace it within anywhere from a few days to a few weeks with something more expensive and sturdy.

I honestly have no idea what all the positive reviews are about, or why this is the case that shows up first on practically every page when you search "iPad mini case" on Amazon. Don't be tempted by the positive reviews or nice photos. This is the first time I have ever been frustrated enough to write a review on Amazon, if that means anything.
