Great Cover Purchased at Amazon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Snugg Apple iPad 3 & iPad 4 Case - Leather Smart Cover (Black) with Kick Stand (Personal Computers)
I recently purchased my first iPad from an Apple store in my local area. It is a "New" iPad, or as sometimes refered to as the iPad 3. The Apple store only offered one cover for the iPad and that cover gave very little physical protection to the product. So I searched the internet for a more acceptable cover. I eventually came accross the Snugg case on Amazon. The picture of the case looked good, the price was good and the header listing it as a "Leather" case caught my eye. I was initially surprised that a leather case would be priced as low as this Snugg case. As I read the details further on the case I quickly saw that the case was not actually real leather but a look alike. The price now made more sense. I read some of the reviews of the case and two negative issues were brought out.
First, a couple reviewers lambasted Snugg for "falsely" advertising it as a "Leather" cover when in fact it really is only a leather look alike. Using the term "Leather" in the header of the product was just a marketing ploy to get people, like me, to look further at their product. The detailed write up made it very clear that the cover was not real leather but a synthetic look alike.
Also, several reviewers said that the magnets in the edge of the cover would not put their iPad to sleep when the cover was closed as it was advertised to do.
My outcome: I decided after reviewing all the details and reviews on the cover to go ahead and order it from Amazon and give it a try. Let me say that I could not be more pleased with all aspects of this cover. The leather look alike has to be examined very closely to be able to tell that it is not real leather. It looks great and has a very nice feel. My "New" iPad fit perfectly in the cover and the built in magnets work beautifully to put the unit to sleep and to wake it up just as they should.
All in all, I love this cover. I would recommend it to everyone unless you just have to have a true leather cover at a far more expensive price.

Could you tell me if this case also covers the screen of the iPad or do you get the clear screen protectors for that purpose?

This Snugg case does not provide any screen protection to the iPad screen when the case is open.
