I just received the Marware MicroShell and I have to say that I think it's great. We're a bit limited for choice in the UK at the moment, but this is definitely the best case that works with the Smart Cover that I've found so far. It looks like it's been redesigned since its original incarnation. There are no ridges on the back like the original version. The cover is very thin and barely adds any bulk. I understand from reading a few reviews on the original version that it was quite difficult to get on and off. This problem has definitely been resolved with this version. It snaps on easily & is also easy to remove. The cut-outs are great and don't leave too much of the aluminium back on show. The Smart Cover fits nicely and you can still remove it easily. The sleep/wake function works without a problem. All in all, it's a very good case that works well with the Smart Cover. My only criticism is that, although the black case claims to be black, it's actually a dark grey. I'd call it graphite. Sorry the photos aren't that great, they were taken in a bit of a rush.
