    Fantastic kit, turns your iPad into a notebook - LOVE IT!

    • Written by from London

    I bought this cover/keyboard last October for my new iPad and it has been an invaluable asset:
    1. The battery life on the keyboard (bluetooth) is amazing. I have charged it once in 10 months.
    2. It takes a little getting use to, touching a screen as well as touching the keyboard. It's the best of both worlds.
    3. The keyboard is robust and it has made me move away from the MacBook Pro for mobile word processing and most documents.
    4. Your iPad just clips in as there is a magnetic strip alongside one side of the iPad.
    5. Can't recommend it highly enough.

    4th iPad keyboard...finally found it !

    • Written by from Columbus

    Ok, I have tried three other keyboards rated high in the Apple store and on other sites. I have had this model now for a few months and it is the best. It is extremely light, the keys are spaced out well and responsive, and it looks like it was made for the iPad. I have the white model and it looks perfect with my white iPad. Many have complained about the magnets...I have never had an issue. I suppose if you shake and shake the attached unit, it will come apart, but again, the magnets have been very reliable for me throughout my work travels. 5-stars.

    It scratches the screen!!!

    • Written by from Durham

    It works well as a keyboard and all. But instead of protecting the screen, the keyboard scratches the screen when used as a cover. The main problem is where the iPad stand on the keyboard. If you feel that edge of the groove with your finger, it almost cuts your skin. It may just be my keyboard, but caution if you are considering buying.

    Overall it fails to deliver

    • Written by from Highlands Ranch

    When I first saw this in the store, it seemed as though it would be an awesome product. A keyboard that easily separates from the iPad, so that you didn't have to have the bulk and weight of the keyboard with you at all time.

    The biggest problem is that it separates from the iPad *way* to easily. As a matter of fact, it barely holds on at all. The magnets are terrible and don't come close to providing proper support for the iPad. I was amazed at how easily it separates, when you least want it to. It will likely end up breaking your heart when your shiny new iPad, takes an unexpected tumble when the two pieces separate.

    Other problems with it. Even when attached, it only protects the class front. It offers no protection of any kind for the back, so a film or other form of protection still needs to be purchased.

    The bumpers protecting the keys from the class surface are thin and inadequate. Carry the two pieces together, per instructions, I found every time I opened it, my iPad screen had keyboard marks. I believe eventually that this will have a toll on the screen.

    Bluetooth battery life is good, but the screen is compact, far more compact than the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard, and key travel not nearly as good. I found this made it difficult to type on.

    I returned this product the following morning. I felt it to be a very sub-par product, with only one great feature. The ability to separate the iPad from the cover and dock it in the slot. Everything else about it I found to range from fair to poor. If you are going to leave your iPad docked at all times, you may find it to be an excellent product, otherwise I would suggest looking at alternatives. There are plenty of them out there.

    Best Keyboard and Cover EVER!

    • Written by from DETROIT

    Yes, I said it. I am so happy with this keyboard. I've tried them all; I had the smart cover, other covers and the regular bluetooth keyboard, etc. This just works. The magnetic click-on holds exactly as promised, and the iPad fits nicely in the slot (best in landscape). It IS thin and lightweight; I can close it with one hand. You've already spent $100s on diff't solutions. Spend your last $100 on this keyboard case--you won't be sorry.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    • Written by from Leeds

    I found this to be great. Perfect for making the ipad a bit more like a laptop - much easier for emailing on the train etc. Makes it slightly heavier, but worthwhile. Clicks securely into place, and very stable. Definitely worth the money. Needs an ipad mini version!

    Faultless - and slick

    • Written by from Houston

    A perfect product - not something one runs into very often anymore. Exactly as advertised. Very high quality, looks great, excellent keyboard (I can type several times faster on this than on the virtual keyboard), syncs instantly - and automatically - every time, and takes up no room at all. I've now bought several for my relatives as gifts.

    For those like me who use their iPad as if it was their laptop

    • Written by from Boston

    This is a great product. I type, surf the web, and watch Netflix on my iPad on a daily basis and I needed something that would make it feel like I had a laptop on my lap, or in front of me on a table- this Logitech keyboard fulfills all my needs. I was a bit hesitant at first because of the price tag but I decided to just go for it and I have not been disappointed. If you use and rely on your iPad as if it was your own personal MacBook I recommend that you pick this product up ASAP.

    Does not work

    • Written by from Sao Paulo

    I bought my keyboard two weeks ago, but it does not work when not connected to the USB port of my computer. Do not know if battery is not charging or what is happening. The think is that I brought it back to Brazil, and do not know how to fix it here... Very disappointing... Very good design, and must be very useful, but has not yet been able to use it...

    Made my iPad into a laptop!

    • Written by from Chigwell

    Since the introduction of the iPad, I have seen a dramatic change in its functionality. With a plethora of productivity apps, it has now become more than a mere tablet and can easily be used for simple content creation. For me, this includes extensive use of dropbox, pages, emails and calendar schedules (and others). As the iPad had increased in functionality, I had been searching for a keyboard for my iPad for a long time, to create a commutable tablet/laptop hybrid.

    I was sceptical about this keyboard for a few reasons. 1) The high price, 2) Concerns about the keyboard toppling over(!), 3) The lack of protection on the back of the iPad (the keyboard only covers the screen area). However, the high number of positive reviews encouraged me to finally go ahead with the purchase. My worries were in vain.

    I am very satisfied with the keyboard. The product looks very nice in person, clips onto the iPad (3rd gen) fine, and even wakes/sleeps the screen when opening and closing, respectively. There is a fairly strong magnetic groove in which the iPad slots; remarkably, the iPad is held very sturdily. Typing is also comfortable of the chiclet style keyboard, although it is a tad smaller. I cannot recommend this for long essays, but for on the go work (emails, messages, short blogs, etc), it is very convenient, indeed!

    I cannot comment on battery life, but Logitech does claim 6 months, with 2 hours of daily usage. Charging is achieved through a mini-usb to usb cable (included), however, I have been using my Kindle charger with this just fine. A cleaning cloth is also included.

    There are a few negative points I can mention. The price is very high (I paid almost £90) and construction of the device does feel very slightly sub-par. Don't get me wrong, the device feels and looks fantastic, but for the price, I would expect more. But the keyboard is very thin, displaying a nice feat of engineering.

    In conclusion, with it attached to my iPad, I have created a convenient and fully functional, mini mobile laptop. I am very satisfied indeed and can whole-heartedly recommend this device, provided you are prepared to pay the premium.

    Not if you plan on using VI or VIM

    • Written by from Dallas

    This keyboard is fine, I had a little trouble with it repeating keys too often, and I had to learn to type lighter. I seriously can't imagine why they replaced the ESC key with another home button. I mean, there's a home button right on the iPad, why would I need another on the keyboard at the expense of the single most useful key during text editing with VI / VIM?

    Sure you can work around by learning to hit Ctrl-C instead to leave insert mode, but some habits aren't worth breaking for $99. Plus, I need to enter backticks and tilde's on a regular basis since I'm a Linux systems adminstrator. These keys also also require several key presses. This keyboard might work great for a PM or BA, but not the actual Techie.

    Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover

    • Written by from Sun Prairie

    This is a real nice keyboard and worth the price. Easy to connect, and the Ipad sits in the magnetic slot at the right angle to view the screen. Solid design. The Ipad doesn't shake or anything when typing. Can still use the touch features when the keyboard is connected.

    Great product, well worth the price

    • Written by from Caterham

    The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard is a great product. I am really pleased with the purchase that I made. Admittedly the price at first was a bit of a put-off but I went ahead anyway and bought it and very pleased that I did. I would recommend it to anyone because the keyboard feels comfortable and doubles as a very sturdy case. One thing I was unsure of was whether it would be compatible with my iPad with Retina Display but it works just as well. With a six month battery when fully charged what could be better??! The only downside some might feel is the thickness of the case as it does add a lot to the iPad. Overall, you should buy it!

    Love it.

    • Written by from New Westminster

    I purchased the keyboard after seeing one of the IT guys in my office using it with his IPAD. I like the fact that with the keyboard I can use the IPAD moreso like a Notebook computer. The keyboard is easy to type on and is comparable in touch to my Notebook in that the keys are not too crowded together. I type a lot during the day on a desktop PC and I have no complaints about the Logitech keyboard.

    When the keyboard is closed up on the IPAD it looks sleek. I'm not sure how protective it actually is though.

    The only downfall I can have noticed is that when using the camera feature it was difficult to hold the keyboard cover in one hand while holding the IPAD in the other hand. Taking photos would be an instance where the more popular neoprene IPAD cover would be better than this one.

    Great but Bluetooth annoying

    • Written by from Toronto

    I am very happy with this keyboard/case - has arrows which I miss on the virtual keyboard. But one has to reconnect it with Bluetooth after a short break - why isn't there an auto-detect? It takes very little time to reconnect but it's annoying. It took me a while to figure out how to open it up, the method in the illustration does not work for me, I still am not sure I'm prying it open correctly. Otherwise, it looks, types and protects beautifully. Just fix the Bluetooth connection please.
