The case is an excellent fit and holds the new iPad securely, it is shaped perfectly to allow access to all buttons and controls. The material offers good protection when using and carrying my device, the material has a nice suede like feel. I've been using the case for two weeks now and it hasn't marked or scuffed. The integral magnet closure also puts the screen to sleep when you close it and means the cover remains securely in place. The tri-fold cover supports the iPad well for landscape viewing. I have seen several far more expensive covers on friends iPads but have to say the quality of the product, effectiveness of the design and function and the excellent service ( it arrived within 2 days of ordering) coupled with a very competitive price of only £9.99 mean it is a great all round package if you are looking for an everyday case for your new iPad and like practical items which do precisely what they are designed for and are inexpensive to purchase.
