Customer Reviews

The sleep wake feature does not work.
Be loved
It appears that the magnets in the iPad 3 have been moved slightly, if you push the case cover to the upper right corner a bit on an iPad 3 the magnets will work.
Chris Tashjian
It looks very elegant, fits perfectly, has a very nice, smart and slim look to it.

I purchased the charcoal colored Targus Slim Case on a whim while visiting an electronics store in another city. I had my new iPad in hand and really wanted to protect my investment from scratches, etc. I had seen the case on Amazon but to my dismay hadn't read any of the reviews. I'm thrice sorry. First, because I didn't read the reviews, second because I didn't buy it from Amazon where I could have easily returned it, and third, I'm sorry I bought it at all.

I have all of the problems reported by previous reviewers for example: Not only doesn't the magnetic lock work properly, it causes my new iPad to continually cycle sleep/awake. It is as if the magnet is close in position/strength, but off just enough that any slight movement in the cover causes the sleep/awake state to cycle. I must turn this function off when using this case.

Additional problems I've encountered:

I've used the case for exactly three days and the cover is already becoming loose (relaxing of the 'hinge?) to the point where it doesn't always stay aligned with the display exposing corners to possible damage. This isn't extreme yet, but I can only see it increasing as I use the case.

Attempting to use the case in the low stand position simply doesn't work. Any pressure on the face of the iPad causes a shift away from my fingers which soon results in the collapse of the 'stand'.

Using the high angle stand position results in an unstable base. Apparently this is caused by flex in both the 'bottom' of the stand and the elastic 'hinge'. This flex is increasing as I use the case in the high angle position. It is already extremely annoying and I suspect it may soon become unusable for anything that requires touching the display.

I like this case for a lot of reasons -- the slim profile, the stylus storage, and the comfortable viewing and typing angles when the cover is folded. But one of the main reasons I wanted this model was the sleep/wake function of the lid...and it does not function. Either the magnets are not strong enough, they are misaligned, or simply do not exist. I suspect Targus was rushing to market to have compatible designs on shelves by the launch -- and it worked, because I was one of those customers who wanted to make sure the package said "new iPad" rather than risk an imprecise fit -- but the complete lack of this core feature is a major oversight. At first I thought I had a dud, so I exchanged it, but found the same behavior in the second one.

Since I like all the other features, I have decided to keep and use the case, and I am deactivating the sleep/wake function in my settings in the meantime. However, the price is too steep without this functionality, and I will be keeping my eye out for another case with similar features and full functionality.

Purchased this case from Best Buy on the New Ipad release date and was disappointed that like so many of the new cases the on/off feature did not work. Emailed Targus and they responded within 24 hours to advise me that they were aware of the problem with the magnets on the case. They advised me to email a copy of the receipt from Best Buy and they would replace with a corrected model, but it could take 6 to 8 weeks to receive. Also said to keep non working case so ipad would be protected. I was truly surprised when I received my replacement case within ten days.

My first impression of this case was that it was neat, well made, and does not add much bulk or weight to my ipad. The on/off feature works every time. The material is a canvas type material, easy to grip, and a few drops of milk spilled on it wiped off easily with no staining. All cutouts for the ports are perfect. Although I was initially hesitant about the cutout on the back for the Apple logo, it is well done, provides an extra place to grip, and is deep enough so the logo never touches any surface when laying down, so I don't envision any scratching. To my surprise it is the feature that I get positive comments on the most. The stand feature works great in typing mode, which I use the most. The viewing mode also works, but is a little top heavy and not stable enough to tap on the screen without holding. I used this feature for watching a few videos and had no problems. The cover does not lay perfectly flat on the screen behind the magnet area, and does not lay perfectly flat when opened on the back, which appears to be due to the seam on the cover. However, these are non issues for me, and could possibly be because the case is new and not broken in yet from extended use.

Best case out there, unfortunately Apple changed the magnet scheme to unlock/lock the ipad without telling anyone.

Targus promptly shipped me a replacement case I received a few weeks after calling their customer service. No extra cost to me. Fantastic service and fantastic case.

Verified Purchase
I really like the sleek look of this case it is elegance understated. The magnets do not work but I contacted Targus and they are shipping a new one, granted it may take 6-8wks but I do not have to return the case. I am very happy with their solution to the problem..shame on apple for not releasing their specs. It's not Targus' fault...and anyway is it really life altering to have to turn on the iPad manually?
The only other thing is that it would be great if Targus would offer a discount on the matching stylus if purchased together.

I have just received the second case in bone color and the auto open feature does work. Love the case so pretty!
