I received my cover yesterday and attached it immediately. The cover seems quite durable and a good designed. I think there could be some improvement in protection but the value is good.
The main reason I wanted to write this is that the ad copy has only one picture and does not give a good overall description. The photo in the ad looks gray on the outside to me but the outer cover really is black and the inside is gray. The device is attached with the peg system in the back similar to strap accessory and looks to be compatible with the strap accessory if you would like to have both. It does not pop on and off like the Apple Smart Cover (which is only held on by magnets) but you're not likely to loose it accidentally either. The pegs are easy enough to pull out if you feel he need but you will then run the risk of losing the little pieces that hold it together.
I give this a lower rating on protection and design because the cover, while it does use magnets to activate the iPad, does not hold the cover shut. It may be that they have changed the design of the nüüd case to include the magnets necessary to hold it shut after I ordered mine in late 2012 (I don't think this cover was considered back then), but my portfolio cover flops around freely turning my iPad on and off if I am not holding it shut. This isn't a huge deal to me as I usually keep my iPad in a bag. If I used the shoulder strap accessory, I think I would be sorely disappointed.
I do like the design and function so far. It is much easier to deal with than trying to wrestle the hard plastic cover on and off and then try to find something to do with it when I am not using it as a stand.
