Wrap your New iPad (aka iPad 3) or iPad With Retina Display (aka iPad 4) in style with this Ergo Cover and Stand for iPad 3 from Monoprice!
This case provides double duty, protecting your new iPad from the wear and tear of daily use, and providing a hands-free viewing platform for your multimedia content. The polycarbonate shell gives an extra layer of shock protection, while the blue leatherette exterior provides comfort and style.
The case/stand can prop up your iPad into a near vertical landscape orientation for multimedia content viewing or into a slightly angled, ergonomic typing position. The cover is lined with a soft felt material, which provides a soft cushion of protection for the finish of your new iPad. The cover also features a magnetic latch, which both keeps the cover shut and automatically turns your iPad on when it is opened and off when it is closed.
Note that the iPad Cover Lock / Unlock option is not enabled by default. The option is located by pressing the Home button, then choosing Settings > General. However, the option will not be visible until you actually attach the magnetic cover to the iPad. Alternatively, you can use a small refrigerator magnet to simulate a magnetic cover, thereby allowing the option to become visible.
The cover has cutouts for the connectors, camera lens, and controls. Additionally, the cover is slotted at the top to allow clear access to the 4G antenna area, ensuring that it will not interfere with 4G reception.

The stand performs very well in the various positions. The fit is very good and putting the iPad into the case is very easy. On my "new" iPad the clips that hold it in place are very snug and it takes some effort to fully remove it from the case, but I think that is a good thing. It holds it very securely and everything lines up just right.
The only minor downside is that when you open the front cover up fully and wrap it around the back, it does not fold completely around to the back so it's not as comfortable to hold as it could be. You would not be able to open the front, wrap it around the back and lay it flat on the table. I never do that anyway as I gererally use the tri food cover and make a low angle stand.
Overall I very much like this case. Oh and it also fits nicely into the geometric neoprene case (8852) with this case on.
PROS: Fits very well
All openings (camera etc.) line up just right
Inexpensive but not cheap
CONS: The tri fold front cover does not fold back flush with the back when fully open (180 degrees).
I bought it. I like it, I love it, I'm happy and satisfied.
Ditto on all the pros above. I don't agree with the Con about the missing stitching – to me, they look like lateral creases which normally don't have stitches. Fine to me.
I like the blue, it's slightly darker than pictured, looks like a light royal blue. A posh, understated, executive look.
No outgassing from the synthetic material. A big plus.
Mono price even embossed their name on a lower right corner. To me, that shows they are willing to stand behind it, use it as a marketing item to draw more traffic to their site, and makes me wonder if this is the beginning of a long line of Monoprice inexpensive, good looking and durable products I hope so.
Monoprice is now on my radar for more than just cables.
PROS: Ditto the aboves.
CONS: Zip zero zilch nada.
The smart cover works! I know that some products were having an issue, but Monoprice has manufactured this cover with the correct magnet polarity. The quality and price are just what I have come to expect from Monoprice. I am another satisfied customer.
PROS: Inexpensive, but high quality, fits 3rd ten iPad perfectly, magnetic cover works
PROS: durable, non-bulky, and has convenient stand positions. I would highly recommend it, low cost
PROS: Low price compared to "name brand". Good protection.
CONS: It didn't come with a cookie.
PROS: This cover is exactly what I wanted. I can carry my iPad around without worrying if it will get scratched. This cover is almost a steal! The (insert name brand here) covers are $39 and I think they are just on the top of the iPad. This one covers the top and the bottom, and uses the same magnetic on/off that the name brand ones do. I am so pleased!
PROS: Great quality
Blue color is actually really nice (I originally wanted black)
Cover works well with turning screen on/off when opened
PROS: Great price. Works perfectly.
PROS: Very good quality for a very good price. Excellent value. I purchased over 40 for an iPad rollout. It's not the fanciest, but it protects well, looks good, holds up well over time and has several positions that it will hold the unit.
CONS: Not that I can think of. Some people wanted a slicker, more fashionable case, or maybe one with a keyboard. We gave them something that would protect our investment, and they could shop around for a fancy one if they wanted to.
