Product: Apple Ipad 2 Smart Cover
Colour: Light Grey
I recently bought an Ipad 2 from the Apple store. As the Ipad is quite expensive i wanted a case/cover which would keep my Ipad safe and well protected from any dust and scratches. Whilst waiting for the sales assistant to set up my Ipad i browsed the selection of cases instore and decided that the Smart Cover would be my best option.
You can either opt for a Leather or a Polyurethane cover. The Leather cover is £59.00 and the Polyurethane cover is £35.00. I decided to go with the cheaper option and bought the Polyurethane version.
The covers come in a variety of colours, the Leather colours are; White, Tan, Black, Dark Grey and Red. The Polyurethane colours are; Pink, Orange, Green, Blue and Light Grey. I was originally going to have the Pink coloured case but changed my mind last minute and decided that the Light Grey looked that little bit more smart and classier.
I originally thought that the Smart Cover covered both the front and back of the ipad, so as you can imagine upon removing the cover from the packaging i was quite disappointed to find that it only covered one side, the screen. Therefore i found the £35.00 price tag a little steep.
Putting aside my original disappointment the cover is cleverly designed and does it's job of protecting the screen of my Ipad extremely well. It's a perfect match, a durable, thin, slim cover that magnetically aligns my ipad with a perfect fit.
The cover also converts into a stand for my ipad, so is handy for reading, watching and typing, a nice little touch i feel.
The lining inside the covers have microfiber lining which ensures that my Ipad screen stays dust free, scratch free and clean.
When closing the cover for my Ipad it automatically puts it in sleep mode and turns the screen off, when opening the case it automatically wakes my Ipad and is ready to use, a huge plus point for me.
Overall i'm really pleased with the product, it does it's job well and is a fantastic design. The only downside for me is not having protection for the back of the Ipad, personally making the cover a little high in price for me.
Summary: Cleverly designed
