This case is well made and the the finish is quite good. The material doesn't seem to be genuine leather, but I didn't really mind.
The customer service from Poetic is quite good as they responded to my email questions in a couple of hours.
Like I mentioned above, the case is very bulky. See the couple of pictures I've uploaded above comparing with my macbook air. To start with, the touch pad is about twice as thick as iPad 2, and then you double its thickness further with this cover and defeat the whole purpose of portability.
Also, I do not like the snapping cover flap. I had to fuss with it to get it open every time I had to use it.
I don't find the design elegant and sleek. It holds the touchpad using a few curved flaps, but do not provide complete protection (see the stock pictures above).
I returned this case and got the one made by HP and find it much better designed (though it seems to be a replica of iPad 1 case by Apple). This one is made of a rubberish material, but covers the touchpad completely and doesn't have many of the issues mentioned above. So far I like it way better than the Poetic one.
HP TouchPad Custom Fit Case
Then just from being opened and closed a handful of times a day, and not even every day, the "leather" split open completely on the snap that holds the case shut. The "leather" this case is made of is so thin it may as well have been textured paint printed on, and the underlying material is some kind of grey powdery cardboard or recycled paper-like substance. Something like what recycled paper egg cartons are made of. I thought it might just be the snap at first but then I noticed that little scuffs, the kind you get from just pulling something out of your bag, that wouldn't even mark leather were snagging the material. Shortly after the thin layer of plastic pretending to be leather covering snap split open completely one of those scuffs just fell open and you can see that the entire case is nothing more than grey lint painted over with leather textured rubber or plastic that's no thicker than saran wrap.
There's advertising, playing up your product, and then there's selling plastic coated cardboard as "leather". Amazon should ban sellers that pull this kind of bait and switch scam on people.
