After a couple days of use, I decided I'm going to return my black leather smart cover. I think the concept itself is very cool, it's just not well delivered in many areas. The obvious being no backside protection. But also, I liked the way I could prop up the original ipad and black Apple case on my stomach when laying down (like an inverted V). Can't do that at all with a SmartCover, nor do I feel it's stable enough when in "TV View" mode or whatever it's called. I also don't like that when I'm holding it, I can't slide my fingers underneath the smartcover when it's folded back, like I could with the original iPad and case. I loved holding my old iPad that way. I also don't feel the SmartCover is "stiff" enough - it just sort of flops around when it's not closed. Finally, at $70, I feel it's way overpriced and for the above reasons, definitely not worth that cost for me. I know, many of my gripes are the result of being an original iPad owner, but I like what I like. My search for a similar case continues.
