5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd bought it before I bought the apple one...
This is an excellent case, well worth the money. It has now replaced my £60 apple one as it does a much better job of protecting the iPad from bumps and scratches on the front, back and sides, while enabling access to all the buttons. I ordered one in black and one in purple and really like both colours. Arrived the day after it was ordered. Very happy customer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only one problem
The TeckNet iPad2 cover is well made and protects the iPad while maintaining it's portability and usefulness. The only issue is with the auto off feature. Unfortunately it also turns the iPad2 off if the cover is folded back on itself and held by the lower edges. This must just push the magnet (or whatever is used) close enough to activate the off function. We initially...

5.0 out of 5 stars Total no brainer - just buy it,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TeckNet® New iPad 4, iPad 3 Premium Folio Case / Cover and Flip Stand & Magnetic Auto-Sleep Included Screen Protector and stylus pen - Black (Electronics)I was in 2 minds whether to get the smart cover (price sort of put me off) or the official case. But I read the reviews of the case and for a £30+ product I was very wary. I saw the Tecknet case and the reviews and thought that under a tenner it was worth a try. I needn't have worried as it is a great case with full front/back protection, neatly aligned slots and a nice flag to allow the ipad to stand high or low in landscape mode (not sure of the techy terms!). I bought 2 of these as my son really liked the look and feel of it. I would say it has a luxury leather look to it, it definitely does not look cheap.
A friend has the smart cover and was showing off how it turns the ipad on and off if you open/close it. Don't worry as this is an ipad function not the case so the Tecknet case also does this!
All in all the perfect case for what is a pretty amazing gadget. You really don't need to look anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value -highly recommended,
This review is from: TeckNet® New iPad 4, iPad 3 Premium Folio Case / Cover and Flip Stand & Magnetic Auto-Sleep Included Screen Protector and stylus pen - Black (Electronics)There is an element of 'you get what you pay for', in that the "leather" is fake, but you knew that didn't you... Having said that, the finish is excellent, it's well made, and it's robust.
The case works by lifting a Velcro-fastened flap on the hinge side of the iPad holder, sliding in the iPad and then re-fixing the flap by the vecro around that side of the iPad. Once in, the iPad is held securely, with the back and face well protected, whilst all the ports and controls are still accessible - even with the case shut.
The magnetic 'catch' that doubles as the auto sleep/wake feature also holds the flap easily firmly enough in place, so it's simple to slip the iPad and case into a bag knowing that it will remain well protected inside.
The little tongue on the back of the case that lets you have a gentle or steep slant landscape mode works very well - and so far it hasn't shown any signs of wanting to stick out from the back when the case is closed. When in the slant position, the case holds nice and firmly, so no issues there. I've used mine both in gentle slope using the on-screen keyboard and in steep mode with a Bluetooth keyboard (when I want more screen real-estate available) and it's great for both.
So overall, a very impressive, incredibly good value accessory for your precious new iPad. What's more the delivery was super-quick, so you aren't left for weeks with an unprotected iPad.
Would I buy again if needed? Without a second thought!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price,
This is an excellent case for anyone looking for a quality, functional, attractive leather case for an ipad 2.
QUALITY: This case is well made with quality PU materials. My impression is that it will be very durable. Time will tell.
PRICE: This is a substantially better case than a similar leather case I paid £40 for.
SLEEP MODE: The cover works great at putting the ipad 2 in and out of sleep mode.
COVER FOLDS BACK: The cover also folds all the way back and lays flat. A feature sometimes lacking in other cases.
PROTECTED CORNERS: The manufacturer did a nice job of protecting the corners by slightly extending the edges out.
NO FUSS DESIGN: The case has an elegate, simple design. Case is quick to adjust.
SNUG FIT: Case fits well. The ipad 2 doesn't move. Leather stretches so I'm hoping it stays snug
SECURE: The ipad 2 appears to be very secure in the case. A fold of leather and velcro keep it secured.
BUTTON ACCESS: The case allows easy access to all of the buttons and features of the ipad2.
BORDER OF SCREEN: The case is cut back away from the screen slightly to allow easier access to the edge of the screen.
SMELL: My case arrived in great condition but did have a slight chemical odor that went away in a short period of time.
ANGLE OF ADJUSTMENTS: The angles on this case are a little too steep for my taste. The steepest angle makes the case tend to fall forward in some situations. This is a minor criticism and really just a matter of preference.
APPEARANCE: Professional, streamline, quality look. Nice enough for the board room.
Overall, a great ipad2 case.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome, finally a good case,
I've gone through several cases. I started with some Belkins from Carphone Warehouse because I needed something quick before a trip. First, I bought a zip up slip case that left way too much play and seemed baggy (20£), thats all they had that day. I traded that one in a few days later and bought the Belkin Slim Folio Flip Case (35£). This one had a fantastic outside look and a snug fit - but there was no velcro on the inner flap that secured the ipad!! So whenever in stand position, the iPad would slide down and the buttons would be out of line, headphone jack out of line, home button behind material.. pathetic, it required constant reseating. Additionally the build quality on the inside was poor; the face of the case outlining the iPad screen wasn't even straight, not even flush with the pad, leaving lots of room for stuff to get stuck under the flaps. The stitching was some rubbery material that was uneven and inconsistent and it looked terrible while trying to frame the iPad. for 35£!! I traded that one in for a Griffin Elan Sleve case - although it was for iPad 1, it fits the IPad 2 pretty snugly and offers full protection on all corners and a securing strap at the top (30£.) I had to keep that one because carphone warehouse doesn't allow refunds - I like it, it looks great, but it doesnt offer the stand capability which I missed from the Belkin case. Good for securing for travel, at least my ipad now was secured in some sort of case.
So I still wanted a flip folio. I went online with the benefit of time now and browsed available cases offering the flip functionality.. ordered the BMCdigital Advanced Pro PU leather case for 20£. After recieving it, and seeing how cheap it looked with a piece of grooved plastic on the top of it (??) and frankly it looked like it was made for the iPad 1.. i sent it back for a refund. By now having spent all this money on cases and getting poor quality I realized that money doesn't necessarily translate into quality cases. Up till now none of the cases i tried even offered the auto on/off function.
I saw this case and saw that it had 5 star reviews with a super low price, and after seeing how pleased people were I pulled the trigger, tired of gambling 30£ at a time for a case. Just received it today and I need to tell you, this is a great case
- The lines are straight, tight, it fits flush with the iPad 2, the iPad 2 looks high value and high quality sitting in there
- Grip is good, no movement of the top lid
- The stitching is good, doesnt look cheap
- Front and back have cutouts in the right place, fake leather looks good, case is simple but elegant.
- VELCRO STRAP keeps this thing securely held in
- Auto on / off works great
- Sturdy stand position, really looks good in stand position, and not too much material.
- The right sides of the ipad are especially exposed to bumps and scuffs- actually all 4 corners are explosed to some degree from debris that can come in from the sides, only the front and back planes are protected so you should still be careful with this.
- You can get dust and debris coming on on the sides
- Might want to get a sleeve to go around this whole thing for traveling or putting in a bag to be sure
All in all - fantastic folio case, unbeatable price, actually would have paid 20£ for this and been happy, considering its better than many 35£ cases out there.
