My main complaint is that I don't believe this case is leather. The cover has a matte-type finish, with a very tiny pattern that is stamped into the surface. The inside cover is gray and feels like suede. I suspect this is man made too, like the clothing or sports jackets you see made of Ultra-suede...pretty good for an imitation. That being said, the stitching seems of good quality, the overall fit is good, and all the ports and controls are accessible, but the iPad slips out too easy and has to be put back in place frequently. The clasp is attached nicely, the Velcro is very strong and the unit will definitely feel tight and protected when closed, and looks good. By the way, the clasp has a metal tag/ logo on it that is stamped "iLuv" because they obviously couldn't use "iPad". Not the masculine touch I would prefer if it had to say something, but a very minor thing. As for the case configurations, the clasp will fold under the opposite side to give you about an inch or an inch and a half incline to read or type horizontally. It is supposed to be able to open like a book or a frame so that you can view the screen vertically, perhaps to watch pictures in a scrolling mode. However, the spine is not sturdy enough to simply stand the iPad upright at any angle, you have to play with it till it balances. It simply can't do what a pair of metal hinges would do. Finally, there are no pockets on the inside cover for papers, note pads, or business cards, pens, etc. But that is my fault as I don't think there was any such claim. A friend had purchased a similar case, perhaps a true Apple product, and I thought this product would be the same. So, overall, I would probably tend to spend the extra money if it were just another $10-12 or so to get real leather and a better quality product with pockets for holding small notes and documents. Hope this helps!
