This stand is great. It is a true purple leather and suede. Outside is smooth to the touch with a bit of a grain and the inside suede is smooth to the touch. The stitching inside and out is precise and not botched. Case swivels in all directions and works well horizontally or vertically. Close and shut off feature works well and being able to further close with the elastic strap is great for carrying in an enclosed space, do not have to worry about accidentally coming open. I had this case before in cloth and I loved it, but the leather is better.
Nice color selection of cases to choose from. I chose the vibrant red one. Easy flip to stand positioning to a few angles. Nice product and price. Don't forget to purchase separately the Insten clear anti glare matte screen protector! See my review on that item as well.
This is equally as durable as the more expensive versions being sold for a lot more. I've actually purchased several of these to go along with the mini iPads I gave as gifts. Love the 360 rotating and the ability to use the stand in either direction (landscape or portrait). I used this on Mini iPad 2s and they fit perfect.
The stand operates as described, sometimes, and is made well, but the stand frequently collapses flat when I touch the iPad screen, even very lightly. And it gets in the way when I'm otherwise using my device in my hands. Given that I paid so little for it, (less than $$) it's not a total loss. Just wish the stand would stay upright as designed.
