Background:
I bought this case for my iPad with retina display (4th generation with lightning connector). I'd been waiting for something like this as the Smart Cover never really made sense to me; it could be tugged off and didn't protect the back of the device at all. I decided to buy the Smart Case in spite of many seemingly negative reviews since the images and videos I'd seen appeared to contradict many of them and also ran contrary to my experience with Apple's accessories. In fairness, finding the right case for oneself is a personal choice and this case is not without some design features that some people will not prefer. As proof of this, I was able to purchase a "like-new" model form Amazon Warehouse deals and so it only cost me $37 rather than the retail $49 and when it came it was indeed like new; not a single flaw except that the original packaging had been taped shut again. I wanted the dark gray version for the same reason I wanted a black iPad: so that the colors wouldn't detract from watching movies, reading, etc. and while this case is not black it is the darkest color available and does "fade away" in that sense.

Performance:
I read a lot of reviews and they all seemed to mention the same set of perceived flaws so I will try to address them in turn.
Many reviews said the product quality was very unlike Apple; in other words, sub par. As far as quality of material, I have to disagree with these reviews, especially at a $12 discount. While I've only had the case for several weeks, the microfiber lining is very soft and nice and the polyurethane body is smooth and matte. It has a rubberized feel to it and grips well.

Many of these reviewers also disliked the fit, saying it was not snug enough. I have to disagree on this point as well.

Simply can't understand the negative reviews for this case. It is light as a feather, fits very well (have had it on for well over a month and it has never come loose). I agree this case could be a little cheaper but honestly after spending so much on my iPad I really didn't mind forking out some extra cash for a cover that i'm happy with.

Here's why it deserves 5 stars:

*Extremely light - Adds virtually nothing to the iPad (i've tried the Speck Pixel Skin HD which is similar and it is really heavy). I read a lot on my iPad so I really find weight to be an important factor.

*Good looking - Nice colors available and the back and front both look really cool.

*Easy to clean - i've spilled on the case, held it with oily hands, and so forth and always has been extremely easy to just wipe it clean with a damp cloth.

*Feels good in the hand. I like the texture, its nice and grippy without feeling tacky.

*Durable - I am a heavy user and very few of my accessories look like brand new a month after I've had them, this case does.

... and Apple's warranty term is one year. This one is my wife's, my own iPad cover was bought for $10 on eBay, looked better, and has not given me any problems. Thanks, Apple!

While we like the style and functionality of this cover, the seams have separated after only 4 months of normal use. With the seams split, the case no longer safely contains the iPad. This isn't an inexpensive off brand, as it is an Apple branded product. We have used a couple of these in the past with no problems, but this one was a dud. Disappointed, to say the least.

This is a good one-piece case that does a very good job protecting both the front and back of the iPad and it is aesthetically pleasing like all other Apple products. It also does a good job of keeping dust and other particulates from getting to the back surface of the iPad. So far it could be a five star product.

However, I have two complaints worth one rating star apiece...

Due to the flimsiness of the back side protection part of the case, two problems are introduced: the iPad fits inside of the case too loosely causing problems with the use of the headphone jack on top and with connections to the dock/cable connector on the bottom. Those two problems make plugging the iPad in to charge it, manage media on it or back it up a challenge when the iPad is left in the case as the opening for the connector does not line up very well with the connector (I do not sync nor back up my iPad using WiFi) - I usually have to move the case around to get a solid connection. Additionally, unless you are using the Apple ear buds, a secure connection for your headphones is not guaranteed because the case gets in the way of the headphone jack at the bottom of the opening for it. I use Bose QC15 headphones and their connection in the headphone jack is not complete. The audio quality and using the mic on my headphone cord with such an incomplete connection are still fine.
