    Honestly, I wouldn't get either, I've played with the Smart Case at the store, and have owned a Smart Cover. The Smart Cover I had, didn't seem to want to stay closed with the magnet, it would come open while carrying it upside down. If you're in the market for a case or something, I would honestly just recommend a sleeve. Something to slip your iPad in and out of, while you're not using it.

    Anyone know if there is really a difference between the Product (RED) smart cover sold by Apple vs the Red Smart Cover from Best Buy? Are they really the same?

    They are the same item.

    IMHO Here is how Apple should fit the Smart Case Cover together...
    With only 3 sections it's the only way it hold in place.

    I bought the Smart Cover. I really like it. I had the smart case for my iPad 4 and I didn't like it that much. Plus, the smart case is $40 more. That's a little too steep for my pockets.

    I have a Smart Cover and like it a lot more than I thought I would. I have a Belkin case on the back too and it has a perfect cut-out on the side for the Smart Cover hinge. I like the ability to take off the cover mad still have some back protection. This is something the Smart Case doesn't allow, since its cover isn't removable.

    Blue smart cover for a Space Grey iPad Air.

    I like it lots because it is barely noticeable when you use it, and lets you keep the profile of the device.

    (Finally figured out there's no reason to hide the iPad underneath a big case, as it takes away from its beauty/convenience. Got AppleCare+ for accidents.)

    I picked up a Smart Case, and I have every intention of returning it before my return date. The reason I am opting to do so is the price. It came to $85 with taxes. If they had a cheaper $39.99 version, I would be keeping the case. It does offer great protection, but I just can't justify the cost of the case. I will find something just as good for at least half the price of this case if not even cheaper than that!

    Those were my intentions as well but the more I used it the more I liked it. So instead of returning my cover, I got the matching blue Apple case for my phone as well.

    Go figure. Lol

    I was thinking of getting a keyboard case for my iPad Air, but I decided to go with the Smart Case and I was able to get an Apple keyboard to go with. I really like this set up. I just keep my keyboard at work when I really need to be productive and just use the Smart Cover everywhere else.

    I wish they had the leather cover for back only. Similar to the one for iPhone.
    That's what razor blade and straight edge are for. Turns smart case into leather back only.

    While yes that would work I am not going to spend $80 on a case and then take a razor blade to it.

    Originally did the smart cover. Blue with a space grey iPad.

    But just bought a beige smart case. Fits really well and is pretty awesome.
