Protects well but not so easy to hold in portrait mode.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forefront Cases Luxury Leather Case Cover/Stand with Magnetic Auto Sleep Wake Function for iPad 3/4 - Black (Accessory)
I've tried a number of different cases and find that most have some kind of annoying flaw that means they don't quite fit the bill. Unfortunately this one isn't perfect either.
Unlike most cases it neither covers up the border area around the screen nor is it too over zealous in the way it grips the edge. This means that it is both easy to type, even the characters at the edge of the keyboard, and it doesn't foul a screen protector. These are both strong plus points. It also seems to protect well and the folding back allows it to provide a great position for hands-free use.
The thing that lets this case down is when you want to view in portrait mode and hold the iPad. The front flap is quite bulky when folded back and makes the left edge very thick and awkward to hold. Using the iPad like this for any length of time is quite uncomfortable. It really needs to be hinged in a way that would let it fold back on itself without making the fold too bulky.
In conclusion, a nice case in a number of ways but the search for the ideal case goes on.

Actually,yes, but at a much higher price point. I ended up buying the Knomo folio case. It is available via Amazon now but wasn't when I bought it so I got it direct from Knomo for £49. I'm really pleased with it, despite the high price. It really is very slim, offers great protection and is very comfortable to hold as it folds back flat.
