The Perfect Cover/Case for the iPad 2,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Snugg iPad 2 Leather Case in Black - Flip Stand Cover with Elastic Hand Strap and Premium Nubuck Fibre Interior - Automatically Wakes and Puts the Apple iPad 2 to Sleep (Personal Computers)
Beautifully crafted top quality leather case which fits the functionality of the iPad 2 perfectly. Everything is fully accessible and the iPad is completely protected. This is the top-of-the-line iPad 2 case for business use or the busy student. The iPad 2 is fully functional in every case position and there are no problems with operation in any case position. To me, the Amazon product description is quite modest as this product has more going for it as it is designed perfectly, I'll just add that I was amazed and happy to see it is exactly what I wanted: An exceptionally crafted leather case for the iPad 2 that doesn't get in the way of the great iPad 2 features. I easily give full five stars to this excellent product. It also puts the Apple magnetic cover to shame. (PS: If your cover turns off the iPad as the video indicates, just go to settings and turn off the auto-on/off feature.)

Thanks for the review! How long did it take for yours to arrive? Just ordered mine and the delivery date is estimated at the end of April or beginning of May. Hoping I get it before my iPad 2 arrives.

I got mine within two weeks. I also stood in line for 6 hours to get one of the first iPad 2's out on March 11th. I think the injured supply line (Japan earthquake) to iPad 2 LCD's might delay the actual availability of the iPad 2 as the Apple site says up to 4 weeks delivery. I don't think they would tell us what was going on really unless their arms were twisted. Hope you get yours soon. You'll love the Snugg case. It's a perfect fit!:- )

it took me until a week or two after it came out to talk myself into ordering one, so my estimated delivery date isn't until april 26th. :( but it's my own fault, haha. it should give me plenty of time to get the case though. thanks again!

The gentleman who replied to the magnetic strip turning off the iPad when the cover is folded completely back is right, but first, the case was not designed to be folded completely back and has a 'cover catch' on the back to keep the cover from lining up to turn the iPad off when folded back. Also, there is a setting on the iPad 2 under general settings that allow you to disable auto on/off from a magnetic cover. I just leave mine set to off as it is easy enough to turn it on and off the normal way with front home button and off with top button. Too bad, he kinda does have a point, but it is easy enough to avoid. thought I would post this after trying to duplicate the problem from the video and seeing that he was right by his own test.

David Howson says:
The iPad cover settings does not appear until AFTER you first attach some kind of cover which has magnets in it.
That is why you don't see it until after you use a SmartCover or other cover with magnets.

Thanks David, I didn't realize that, so appreciate your answer. When that option does appear in general settings it comes up right after 'Passcode Lock' as 'iPad Cover Lock / Unlock.'
Since the description of the product does not mention the magnetic feature, or I missed it in my reading, it wasn't even a feature I was looking for in a cover so I am fine to leave the feature off anyway.

I'm the guy that posted the video review. I feel that there is no reason you should have to do without the feature of the iPad shutting off automatically when shutting the cover. It's inexcusable. This is poorly designed.

I just got my Snugg case today 4-13-2011 and they have fixed the issue it seems.
I have the magnet turn on/off feature enabled and the screen stays on as I type this with the cover folded back flat.
I agree this feature should work right since it makes using the device better.
