Premium feel, effective sleep/wake function and sooooo much better than cheap cases!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Leather Magnetic Case for The 3rd Generation New iPad - Black (Accessory)
Pros: premium feel, excellent protection, securely held, stand actually works in use, cable/camera ports fully accessible
Cons: none, save for lack of portrait orientation but that was irrelevant to me
There's plenty of positive reviews on this item so in practice I'm just adding another 5 star. That said if you've made it this far down, this case surpassed expectations. Having spent £500 on an iPad it seems daft to then stick it in an ill fitting cheap smelling case from eBay, but that's exactly what I've done until now.
I like the premium feel and the substantial build yet that doesn't equate to bulk. The corner grips not only hold the iPad securely in place but offer protection should you drop it on a corner. The stand part is landscape only but I seldom need the portrait option, and the upside of which is that the case is much more stable - you can actually type on it without it collapsing like my old case did.
The description states that it's leather and some folk have questioned whether it is indeed genuine leather - frankly I'm not too worried what it's made of but then again have no reason to doubt that it is indeed leather. It feels lovely in your hands and doesn't stink of plastic, even when it was first unrwapped! It's also stood up to being in my work bag every day without look any worse for wear.
Top job Belkin, thirty quid well spent.
