I received my replacement as well, and I'm keeping both in case the original gets damaged somehow.

I have the Gray/light Gray and a family member has the Black/Black one. We think they are both very nice. The Gray is a darker gray, very sedate and professional looking. The black as you know has the same visual feel. I would honestly say, either one of those colors are a good choice. For me, where I had black on my first generation it's a nice change, while still being professional looking. I haven't seen the dark blue one, so no comment on that one. Hope this helps.

I should say.....as you know, the Black case is all black, plastic and all......The Gray case is two-toned. Plastic parts are lighter than the vegan leather but compliments nicely......so if that would bother you it's something to consider.

I received my replacement on Friday April 20th. The problem is that it still doesn't work. I don't think there is a magnet in it. I'm not sure if I want to go through getting another one. I didn't have to send the first one back which is cool because I'm in Canada. I'll give them a call and see I guess. It's a nice case as it is, but I paid for one that worked with the magnet.

that sucks...I haven't opened my replacement case yet as I was debating to sell it as BNIB. I think I'll open it to make sure the ON/OFF is working before selling it. I'm in Canada too, so also don't know if I'd want to go through the hassle of shipping back/waiting for yet another shipment.

The replacement case arrived this morning. And the sleep/wake function finally works! I love the click sound when covered.

An update. Incipio customer service has been great. They are going to ship me a working case.

Update: finally got around to opening my replacement case. Guess what?! No magnets. They're sending me another replacement. I will now have 3 cases. Might be able to open my own retail store at this rate!

Seriously? That is a buzz kill. At this point, you should just get the case for free.

Yup. I plan to sell off 2 of them to recoup my money! Provided I can actually sell them.

So I bought my second case off of Amazon and this one doesn't have a working sleep/wake function either. It was Navy Blue and I thought the Navy Blue cases had a working sleep/wake function. I'm going straight to Incipio this time, I just hope they replace my case.

Just FYI incipio has removed mention of auto on/off feature for the Lexington on their website.

I just received my Gray Lexington from Amazon. The smart feature doesn't work, as there are no magnets. Pretty unbelievable really. Especially, since it took over a month to ship and they should have had enough time to solve the problem.

I'll probably return it to Amazon, because I am also not pleased with the strap when using the case in book mode. It just gets in the way. The front doesn't always lay flat when closed either. Other than that it's not too bad and the typing and viewing modes work well. It's also slim and has a nice feel to it.

I'm thinking about going with the Devicewear Bridgeway. Either that, or the RooCASE Dual-View, which is only $19 at Amazon.

Fastmax, I had the same problem. I was really angry with amazon. What made it worse was that I bought another incipio Lexington from amazon, hoping that the wake/sleep would work. The new one had no magnets either. I finally decided to just contact incipio instead and they said that they would replace it.

Purchased mine off Incipio like a month ago. It eventually reached the UK a week ago and was stuck in customs. So I've just picked my black one up.

First impressions: Quality is sublime and I was very impressed. The strap will take some getting used to. Then I opened and closed the thing and guess what? Goign to contact Incipio tonight. I am definately not going through with the hellhole of returning this thing after ordering it a month ago.

By contrast my 20 Invision cheapo case from Amazon UK offers equal protection compared to the Incipio and has a working magnetic lined lid.

Edit:
So I got in touch with Incipio last night and stated that I was somewhat dissappointed that they still had not sorted their production issues out regarding the auto-wake feature.

They immediately replied stating they were sorry and would send me a new Lexington with a working auto-wake function free of charge. They also told me to hold onto my existing one in the meantime

Support was top notch as I expected tbh. It's just a shame the excitement out of getting one was killed off due to the length of time it took to arrive, and the fact that my 20 Invision case from Amazon does the job perfectly.

I ended up returning the Lexington and ordering a Bridgeway to replace it. I have to say the new case is just what I was looking for.

It's lightweight, very slim, no strap and a rear magnet for a terrific book mode, auto sleep/wake, nice styling in blue, convenient typing and landscape positions, and appears well-made.

I've been looking everywhere for just the right case under $40 and I really think the Bridgeway is it. If you're not too keen on the Lexington strap, or want something even slimmer, definitely check it out. It's no coincidence that this case is one of the highest rated on Amazon.
