Targus Premium Click-In Case for 3rd & 4th Generation iPad, Black
The issues mentioned in some of the previous reviews must now be resolved...as I bought this case on 21st August and the case works as it should.
The only thing that stopped me giving a five star rating was that the front cover does not hinge right the way back and behind the unit, meaning I have to negotiate the flap hard back book style while holding the iPad...but that's just me being picky.
The iPad fits into the case perfectly, with a re-assuring click as you press the sides in, there is no movement at all and it feels well protected. The on/off feature works when I open and close the front cover.
I have easy access to all controls and ports and the cameras and sound are not impaired at all by the case.
Overall a good quality piece of protection for the iPad.

Fits really well. Nice finish, smart, and well designed. It works as described, with no problems. Compared to other more expensive covers, this is very good value.

An OK buy
The quality of the case is really nice as this is leather. However, the case is not an exact fit for ipad third generation.
Also the positioning of the when in reading tilts to one side and consequently falls back

Good case, but...
A good quality case that protects back and front, looks good, feels good and doesn't add too much bulk or weight to the new iPad.
However, Targus accept that there is a problem with the new iPad wake/sleep operation. If you are having an issue with your case for the new iPad, Targus are offering replacements/refunds on the Support section of their website (sorry, you will have to find it yourself) on production of a proof of purchase.

Frustration - lovely finish but didn't operate the wake function :-(
There must be some production issues with this case. It a great finish and it pained me deeply to have to return it but as for reviewer number one I couldn't get it to work the sleep function on my iPad 3.
In every other respect it's a smart, quality product.
I will probabl try a another from John Lewis to see if I can get one that works.

I purchased this today for my ipad 3 and it's brilliant. The sleep function works perfectly - I see that some people have had problems with this not working, or have to twist their covers to get it to work, but all I can say is that mine works perfectly!
It's a good quality product, the back cover is hard but doesn't feel plasticy and the front cover is well made with a decent lining.
I would highly recommend it

First class product - highly recommended
I nearly missed this absolute bargain due to its previous poor review. I'm really pleased that I took the chance and purchased this item as it is excellent.
The fit for the new iPad (3) is perfect. The hard 'shell' back cover is obviously tailored to the exact dimensions of the new iPad and the durable front cover is tactile, textured and durable. It's amazing, once the case is fitted, that the overall dimensions of the iPad don't appear to have increased at all - so you don't have to compromise on protection over practicality.
The front cover automatically places the new iPad in and out of 'sleep' - Targus have obviously noticed the magnetic polarity change by Apple on the new iPad - unlike some other case manufacturers.
The Targus THD006EU Premium Click-In Case for new iPad is classy, durable and will protect you investment for years to come - I highly recommend this item.

Not good for new iPad
Be warned, despite what it says on the box, this cover does not work well with the new (3rd generation) iPad. It works beautifully on the iPad 2, but on the new iPad the tablet doesn't fit properly into the case, nor does the magnetic on/off function work as indicated (whereas it does on the ipad2 in the same case). This is probably due to the new iPad being .6mm thicker than the ipad2, which in a case as snug as this will make a difference. It is really well made, with a great choice of colours and features, just doesn't work as directed with the new iPad model.
