The iPad snaps perfectly in the back shell covering most of the devices rear metal end. The top and bottom edges have provisions for the iPads buttons and ports. The sleep/wake, headphone and microphone ports are accessible from the top edge whereas access to the speaker as well as dock connection port is from the bottom edge. The front cover of the Joy Factory SmartSuit2 for iPad 2 has magnets that can activate the iPads locking mechanism. The front cover can conveniently fold into a stand for typing or viewing. The back shell holds the tablet securely. When using the Joy Factory SmartSuit2 for iPad 2 as a stand, the lid simply folds back and relies upon the weight of the assembly rather than magnets to maintain its position. The Joy Factory SmartSuit2 for iPad 2 is definitely better looking, less expensive and easier to use than most Smartcases. Overall, it provides good value for money and gets a good recommendation.
