Overall, it is a very good value. When the iPad is in "standing" position, the base is a little flimsy and it falls flat easily. The outside leather had several spots of sticky residue...as if there were stickers removed. I had to buy GooGone to remove the "goo". I do, however, love the lime green leather!

This cover got my husband to toss the old Apple magnetic cover. He can now have the device on his lap in an upright position which frees both his hands. He was getting sun glare when used at the kitchen table and now he can easily angle it to prevent this problem. He is picky and doesn't like inferior products. Great product for a great price!!

For what it is, and what I paid I can't really complain. The purple color is not the color that is pictured. I was expecting a royal purple and this is a pink purple, which is lighter than expected. It does put my iPad to sleep, I thought it was magnetic (which is what I was expecting) and thought it would work better with my Bluetooth keyboard. It's not magnetic, so my keyboard doesn't "stick" to it. I wouldn't trust carrying it with my keyboard in this case. It would slide right out the bottom. The color of the inside is the royal purple I was expecting the outside to be, not the pictured tan and the elastic strap is black. I do like that the back is the plastic cover material with the same grain as the front. I don't believe this is actually leather, but leather like. I guess I would recommend to a friend, just not this color....
This was an anniversary present my husband had requested. After looking at several cases both online and in our local stores, I was a bit dismayed by the expense and impracticality of many of them. Then I saw this one on Overstock.com and showed it to him for his opinion. We had never shopped through O.co before and he was a bit leery, but at a great price and with free shipping we decided we had little to lose. Delivery was prompt and the product is great! He has thanked me repeatedly for it. It's attractive, versatile, lightweight and perfect for his needs. Best anniversary present in recent memory. (After 36 years, it gets a little hazy).
I bought this for my Ipad2, this is not my first case purchase and I have done quite a bit of online 'window shopping' for cases, this is by far the best one I have bought/seen so far - sturdy, good looking and functional. I recommend this strongly.
All I can say is that it was my fault for not double checking the size of the iPad case that I was ordering. The product itself is nice. I ordered a pretty pink case, but this was for a standard iPad, not a mini. So I went back online to Overstock's site to start my return process. Much to my dismay, Overstock does not offer free returns. They gave me two options: One, to pay their set return rate of around $X.XX. The product itself cost $X.XX. Or to take my chances with the post office and hope for a much lower shipping rate. I have not mailed the parcel yet, but regardless, I'll expect to pay about half the cost of the item in returns. I can't lay blame to anyone but myself. I will reconsider ordering from Overstock in the future. There are plenty of online retailers that offer a better return system. I would caution anyone who orders inexpensive items from Overstock that they may have to cut their losses.
I didn't pay much so I didn't expect anything special. It keeps the iPad from getting messed up, but I know I'll be purchasing another case to replace this one within a year's time. If you want a case that will last you longer than that, you'll have to shell out much more than what you'll pay for this case.
