This seems to be a decent case so far as long as you understand what you are getting. The smart cover function works as promised and the magnets are very strong. The cover itself is a soft plastic and it is thick enough protect the screen from impact. The back cover is a stiff thin plastic that will offer very little impact protection but it does offer good scratch protection. If you are careful with your Ipad you should not have an issue if you are looking for a case that is not bulky. The soft cover is glued to the hard back on inside and outside on a small strip. It seems to be good for now but if the adhesive is poor this will be a point of failure over time. I installed a glass screen protector and it does not interfere with the case.
