    Something you should know

    • Written by from HOMER GLEN

    Basically this is a great keyboard, I am glad I bought it. One exception is the auto capitalization and correct do not work. I emailed Logitech support the suggestions they gave me to correct this problem did not solve it. So I did an internet search and found a string pertaining to auto cap & correct not working. According to the Logitech support person responding in the string they said the problem is because Apple will not allow the auto functions to work. Something in their system. I tried the keyboard on my iPad and iPhone the auto functions do not work. I am still going to use this keyboard because it fulfills my needs but I am very disappointed. I gave this a 3 star because of the Apple system failure the keyboard is a 5. Bummer.

    Unstable keyboard

    • Written by from Macarthur

    Lovely functional keyboard but found the ipad kept falling off the keyboard (this was from my desk). The area that holds the ipad also became tacky after about 7 months and kept sticking to the ipad screen cover and pulling it off. Quite disappointing for $100!

    Unstable

    • Written by from Valencia

    After using the logitech keyboard for several weeks, I found it to be unstable when using it on my lap. The ipad was too heavy and I was afraid it would tip over. I returned the ultra thin keyboard for another product.

    Disables Spell Check

    • Written by from Rolling Meadows

    Nice keyboard...smaller than other external kbs, but that's because it fits on iPad...for some strange reason, it somehow disables auto correct, auto capitalization and spell check in iPad's Mail application...disappointing.

    Great keyboard but disappointing as a case cover

    • Written by from CAMARILLO

    The good:
    - The keys are good size and respond well to touch.
    - There are some shortcuts that you can use with this keyboard that are common with regular computers (copy, paste),
    - I like there is a home button (upper left corner) and it works similarly to the iPad's home button.
    - I don't get a delay between entering text and seeing it appear on the screen.
    - Landscape and portrait view capable

    The bad:
    - The magnet isn't strong and like another reviewer, this cover separates too easily from the iPad when you are handling it, so you have to consciously open the cover carefully to avoid dropping it.
    - No protection for the back or corners of your iPad so if you tend to drops it (I've dinged a corner when it wasn't in a full case), this won't protect anything but the screen.
    - The Logitech cover is the same metal as the back of the iPad so easily scratched if you don't have something protecting it, which is hard to find.
    - Every time you want to prop the screen up to type, you have to detach the iPad from the magnetic strip and the entire cover. The first time I did this, it caused the corner of my screen protector to lift up so if you're not careful, your screen cover lifespan will be compromised.
    - I've had it less than 48 hours and the rubber liner that sits in the groove to prop up the iPad is already lifting up; another reader mentioned the liner has a short life span and someone else mentioned scratches on the iPad that result from this groove.
    - Only one angle is available for use.

    I'll be trying the folding keyboard next.

    it has scrambled my ipad screen

    • Written by from Huntsville

    I have had this keyboard for about 4 months and yesterday, when I clipped my iPad 3 into it, it scrambled the screen and continues to do so. its looks like a tube TV on a bad channel. I have to trick the iPad into 'forgetting' the keyboard by cutting the keyboard on and off and cutting the iPad off and waiting. Then clip it in, and take it out again. Why is it doing this??

    Poor quality control!

    • Written by from Grand Bend

    I want to like this product, and I'm sure I eventually will, but I am in the process of sending the second unit just received back due to faulty construction. The first one did not charge, and would only work with my iPad when connected to my MacBook Pro. Apple quickly sent a replacement as I was returning the first one, and it arrived today... with the keyboard warped up on the right front corner, separated from the aluminum backing by 2mm. Come on Logitech, can you check these units before you fire them out the door? These returns take time, and are annoying.
    I just want to receive the product I expect, that works as advertised and looks just like the ones in the pictures. And I'm not willing to compromise on that, whether the unit works or not.

    A Fragile Hinge

    • Written by from LEWISBURG

    Good keyboard. But the hinge for use as an iPad cover is too frail. I, for one, would be willing to pay more for a keyboard/cover with a magnetic hinge made of aircraft aluminum.

    COOL GADGET, BUT...

    • Written by from West Palm Beach

    I LIKE THIS KEYBOARD AS A STURDY STAND WHILE TYPING. THE ONLY THINGS I'M DISAPPOINTED BY IS IT DOESN'T HAVE SKIP OR FAST FOWARD FOR MUSIC, ONLY PLAY OR PAUSE, AND NO BRIGHTNESS CONTROLS. HOWEVER, IT IS GREAT FOR USING AS A STAND WHILE TYPING, AND WATCHING VIDEOS. IT ASLO HAS SPECIAL COMMAND KEYS THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DELETE WHOLE WORDS AT A TIME, AND DOES CONTROL VOLUME. IT HAS SOME UNIQUE FEATURES. BUT I PERSONALLY WOULDN'T USE IT ALONE AS A COVER FOR THE IPAD. I USE MINE TOGETHER WITH ANOTHER CASE TO KEEP EVERYTHING NEATLY TOGETHER.

    Works well as a keyboard but not made well for cover

    • Written by from Horsham

    Keyboard works extremely well but the magnet does not hold onto the ipad securely enough. It keeps on falling off the ipad. So what is the point of having a magnet? just buy a cheaper bluetooth keyboard and carry it with you.
