    got this in the post today, after a 2 week wait. search eBay for MPT3. $13 delivered.

    Pros: nice leather feel, mimics the apple case for propping, screen edge not covered. Sturdy when in standy mode. slightly thicker than i expected. stitching good

    Cons: iPad not snug (but tight), open on top - it could fall out if held 'upside down' (relative to Home button). holes aren't *perfectly* aligned but very use-able

    Its what the Apple case should be made out of in the first place

    I've ordered one of these as a place-holder until the Yoobao frameless case or something similar comes along, so it's nice to know that it fits reasonably well.

    I fail to see how this is an "Apple iPad case knock-off" :confused:

    not real leather, agreed. It's 'leather effect', forgive my lack of textile knowledge.

    I haven't got the apple official one to compare, i'll probably end up with that one in the end. But this one fills the job until then. It's just a shame it took so long to get here

    Well all folio style cases are Apple knock offs if they're slanty and black.

    That's no knock off. THIS is a knockoff, and cheaper too.

    can't see how it isn't. looks near identical to me. except the material of course. and the 'clip' thing at back is different

    Have you actually seen the Apple case? It looks like yours like a motorcycle looks like a mountain bike...yes they both have 2 wheels, handle bars and a seat.

    You agree with what? And what makes it so horrible? It looks basically like the Apple case. I'm starting to think you have no idea what knock off even means.

    Honestly? you're picking bones about my use of the word knock-off? does 'inspired' meet your grammatical expectations?

    changed title to reflect your irritation
