This is a quality product at a reasonable price. The case is hard and offers adequate protection to front back and sides (unlike apple's own smart case). Should protect the precious contents from accidental drops, bangs & scratches. Yet it remains slim and portable, which is one of the key advantanges of the Ipad in the first place. Access to all the buttons and interfaces remains in cut-out areas. Also, like Apples smart case, it has integrated magnets that sleeps\wakes the ipad when closed and opens - which is a really usefull and neet feature. Fit is snug and it offers various stand positions. Look and finish is professional. I spent a while looking at various different cases, and selected this one, and I am glad I did. All in all an excellent choice, and one you wont regret.
