    Scratches

    • Written by from Galveston

    I loved this key board when I first purchased it. However, after about 2 months of use, I've started noticing scratches on the screen of my iPad. There's a rubber strip inside the groove that holds the iPad in place while using the keyboard, this has started slipping out and collects particles and that's what is scratching my screen (primarily). The scratches are in a line right where that groove contacts the screen when used as a cover. I've noticed other scratches too, I just don't think this is adequate for screen protection.

    I do love the way the keyboard feels and functions, I would have no problem recommending this product if not for the scratches.

    TL;DR- Great keyboard, inadequate screen protection, actually caused scratches.

    This thing is not my kind of bag, baby!

    • Written by from Tustin

    I am sad to say that the glimmer I had in my eye upon beholding this product online was extinguished by the stark reality of its form, fit, and function upon my supple hands.

    The bad:
    1. Magnets are weak! I put this on the iPad and while opening and closing it, almost dropped the iPad when the magnet dislodged itself. I about freaked out and almost did a comical juggle to make sure it didn't fall. (In stark contrast--I can hold the Smart Cover between my thumb and forefinger without the iPad ever dislodging from its mighty hold.)

    2. The iPad doesn't fit if it has a back cover. I learned the hard way that the iPad will not sit properly in the groove as I placed it there with the back cover on. After a few seconds of typing, the iPad squirted out of the groove and fell flat on my desk. I REALLY like having a back cover on my iPad and will never take it off as it makes it easier to grip as well.

    3. The aluminum was already getting dirty and can see how much it would scratch with regular use just by sitting on my desk for an hour.

    4. You have to take it off if you plan on using the iPad while sitting or lying down.

    The good:
    1. It LOOKS nice.

    In conclusion, just use the Apple Keyboard and buy the Incase Origami keyboard cover/stand if you want to have a better typing experience.

    Good but Bad at the same time

    • Written by from Rocky Mount

    This keyboard is so very convenient and easy! But, the "groove" that the ipad sits in is entirely too shallow. The ipad flips right out of it. Believe me, it has caused me to have to ship the ipad back for replacement, after it hit the floor. Modifications are needed to make the a wonderful accessory!

    iPad falls out of groove

    • Written by from Daufuskie Island

    I love the idea of this keyboard, and find it 1000 times easier to type on that the iPad's virtual keyboard. But the adhesive strip came out almost immediately, and the iPad regularly drops out of the groove, falling back on the table or countertop I'm using. This is especially a problem when I have the iPad in a vertical position. In fact, my screen how has a long crack, and I'm sure it's from the tipping over. Isn't there something better out there??

    ipad constantly falls out of the keyboard

    • Written by from Laytonville

    I loved this at first but my ipad always falls out of the keyboard. I am sure I will end up damaging my ipad. I tried to contact logitech to tell them about this issue and they would not return my messages. This is ALMOST a perfect design if they could solve this issue but for $100, they should make a product that works better.

    Power off sometimes doesn't

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I like this keyboard in the sense of how it works as a stand and in typing. Recently, I've noticed how the iPad is still powered on when closed. I was wondering why its battery was not lasting as long as it used to. I found this to be an occasional thing, but annoying nevertheless.

    I hope this is only unique to the one I have. I've had it now for a few months so I don't know for sure if it always did this or only started to.

    Broken bracket

    • Written by from OAK RIDGE

    I really like this product and used all the time. My complaint came when the bracket on the top left which holds the Ipad in the case broke. I tried gluing it back, but it still would not work. Now I am out of $100 and I only had it for a short time. This is a design flaw and I feel Logitech should replace this case to all consumers. You would expect something much more durable for $100. I am very displeased and will probably not purchase any more Logitech products. I just got screwed!!!

    Weak Magnet

    • Written by from Norwalk

    This keyboard works well but the magnet is too weak. The cover constantly slides off the iPad when any sliding force is placed on it. I've also had it come apart when sliding it into a snug bag space.

    Expensive and broke after 5 months

    • Written by from Gleneden Beach

    The plastic groove broke off leaving the case/keyboard unusable. $100 waste. I'll look for an alternative.

    Excellent keyboard, shoddy customer service

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Loved this keyboard… until the shift button on the left side magically stopped working eight months in (capitalizing some letters, making some letters just not register at all)-- and need to switch the keyboard off and on every single time it's used in order for the iPad to detect it.. after only very light use during that time. Their website is confusing about how to go about accessing the warranty and their customer service was absolutely terrible.

    Poorly Designed Plastic Breaks at Home Button Location

    • Written by from Diamond Bar

    I have used two of these, and both broke in exactly the same fashion. The rigid plastic frame that the ipad secures into has a weak breaking point around the sleep button. After routine pressing of the sleep button, it seems the plastic flexes, causing it to weaken. The result is a crack right where the home button is. Both keyboards broke in exactly the same spot, and both broke after approximately 2 months of use. The keyboard itself works as promised with no problems other than the weak plastic issue.

    Great for a year, then.... borked my screen

    • Written by from Halifax

    This was great for a year or so, loved it. I had the same issue as others where the keyboard is too heavy and if you hold the ipad by the keyboard you WILL drop your iPad. But once you get used to it it's not too bad.

    However. After a year or so of storing the iPad with this cover on it.... my screen started to go all purple and wavy. Stops when the keyboard is nowhere around (after a reboot).

    Disappointing! Magnets in the cradle portion impacting the display, perhaps?

    Constantly disconnects from iPad 2 Air

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought the ultrathin keyboard for the iPad 2 air. Typing on it is a pleasure. I like how thin and compact it is. The extra function button are useful for the iPad. However, there is one near-fatal flaw. They keyboard will often disconnect from the iPad even as I am typing or leave it for a few seconds. Then I will have to hit a key to get it to reconnect. It isn't fatal because sometimes I can type for awhile without disconnecting and it does reconnect. But it takes greatly from the experience because the iPad keyboard pops up everytime the Logitech keyboard disconnects. This appears to be a common problem based on what I've seen in forums. Unfortunately, this keyboard is not firmware upgradeable, so I don't think there'll be a fix.

    Other minor annoyances are that you do need to slide the iPad at a particular angle to engage the magnetic strip. The other thing is that the magnetic strip is really sharp to the touch when it should instead be smooth to the touch. So there you go. I'm keeping it because the keyboard is really useful and lightweight.
