What's the texture like - similar to the iPad smart covers?
I want to pull the trigger on this but its so effin expensive in Canada, nearly 20 bucks more with shipping.
I've only had it on the unit for a few hours but I've noticed no differences in the ability to write. It seems like the digitilzer is holding up just fine. It also folds back all the way so the magnets do end up behind the case, but it's really thick on the backside so it doesn't turn off. I've never felt the ipad cases actually but its a smooth plasticy fake leather sort of feeling (I guess the PU shell). The back is sturdy. (Like I said - because of that it's a bit heavier than I expected) The inside is a soft material that won't scratch the screen.
I'd say go for it. I'm curious how this case would hold up if I dropped the tablet but I don't really want to try that to find out..

From just using it today there are some crease/wear marks where the folds are, but I think that will just make folding easier. The other parts of the case are pretty thick and solid feeling. I don't see those breaking down.
I'm not sure about it feeling loose. I wish the case came up a bit and wrapped around the front of the unit, I'd then feel like it was more secure. It's not 'easy' to take the tablet out of the case but it does pop out easily when you want it to.
