I returned my Smart Cover yesterday. What a piece of crud. Sure, it adds protection for the screen but that's about it. For $40 I can get a nice book style case that protects the entire iPad 2. I guess the Smart Cover is neat for those who like their iPad's somewhat naked but I need to always keep mine in a full cover to keep it protected for every day use. For me, the Smart Cover is a novelty more than anything else.
