    Great Idea

    • Written by from Lansdale

    I bought this keyboard stand when it came out. It's an excellent idea and really works well. The smart clip feature and the magnetic attraction of the stand to the iPad is fantastic. I have had it come loose a few times, but you get to used to how to open it without that happening. Another drawback, and I've noticed this and all Bluetooth keyboards (except the Apple one) is that occassionally, it types two letters instead of one. If it wasn't for that, I'd have given this five stars. The price is a bit high, but its about what the previous models from Zagg and Logitech have been.

    Great product

    • Written by from Queen Creek

    I purchased this keyboard because I work at the courthouse a lot, and I needed something to hold the iPad up while holding this in my lap. I was nervous about a few of the others, because they did not have a magnetized section to hold in the iPad. This one exceeds all of my expectations. It is super slim, and holds the iPad in place while on my lap. The setup was extremely easy, and the bluetooth works great. I have had this keyboard for over two months now, and it still has the same charge as when I first got it.

    The only thing I would say may be bad, is that you can't have a hard case on the back of the iPad. The keyboard doesn't have as strong as a hold while it is in the magnetized cradle, and I got nervous it would fall out.

    Fantastic Product!!!

    • Written by from Arlington

    Easy to set up, learn and use. It is by far the best keyboard that I have used for my Ipad. My coworkers surprised me with this as a gift and I can't thank them enough. Great product!!! AAA+++

    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.

    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.

    love it

    • Written by from Dallas

    This 3-in-1 product (keyboard, cover, stand) works beautifully. It is superthin and allows the ipad to still fit into cases made soley for ipad (cases that generally don't allow for a cover). The keyboard is perfectly designed, very responsive and doesn't feel compact, even though it is. As a stand, the angle is perfect for viewing, reading. composing, etc. This is exactly what I was looking for and after a month of use, I love it even more.

    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.

    Great, convenient keyboard

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I purchased this keyboard case so that I could avoid taking my laptop on quick trips and ensure I travel light. The Logitech keyboard fulfills that need easily and elegantly. Pairs with no issues, keyboard performance is solid - though as it is obviously not a full size keyboard, it will take a little time to get used to the smaller form factor. It is also great to have a 'home' button right on the keyboard.

    The case itself offers protection for the screen when closed but note that the case does not latch closed. If handling your iPad, the cover will swing open. With frequent use, the grooves that hold your iPad in place during use do seem to have material applied via an adhesive that will pry loose with time. However, it can be easily re-glued. Otherwise, this is the best keyboard solution I've found for the iPad.

    "THE" keyboard for the iPad

    • Written by from Sudbury

    I have tried them all, and without a doubt, the Logitech Ultrathin is the best. I wanted light, slim and functional and I got it all with this keyboard. I have very wide hands and rather thick fingers, and I have no problems typing on this keyboard. It works, period. It works every time and it works beautifully. The other cases and keyboards take away from the light feeling of the iPad. This one is designed to be in harmony with the sense of lightness of using the iPad without a folio or other cover. I tried the folios, but they still felt like I was carrying a book, not an iPad. Get it. You won't be disappointed.

    Nice idea and look - scratched my iPad

    • Written by from Toledo

    I really like the look of the keyboard and it attaches nicely to my iPad. The problem is that it scratched the protective overlay on my iPad. For as good as Logitech products have been, this one is a huge disappointment.

    Rubber Strip ripped off

    • Written by from Inuvik

    I bought this keyboard and it types well and holds it's charge.But and this is a Big But!!!
    3 days after I bought the keyboard the rubber strip that holds it in place and keeps your IPad from getting scratched. Peeled off and all the sticky backing got all over my I Pad screen.
    Very poor design. They should have an extra in the package.

    Best iPad Keyboard

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I have looked at several keyboard/case options for my 3rd generation iPad. This is the one I chose, and I'm very happy with it, though I'd like it better if it protected the back of my iPad. I am a 100 wpm touch typist, and the whole point for me is being able to type at speed when I'm writing something. As with all the choices I've seen, the keys are a tad smaller than standard and the layout is somewhat modified; nevertheless, this works fine for me. If you must have a full-size keyboard with absolutely standard layout, get the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the Incase Origami Workstation. (My own Plan B.) But if you'd prefer something that travels more easily than that and fits nearly anywhere your iPad could go by itself, this is it.

    could not be any better

    • Written by from citrus heights

    first, to address the user that said the magnets were not strong enough: i suggest you return yours. I can hold my "the new" iPad by the sides and the keyboard will dangle sufficiently securely that I am never worried it will fall off. i don't particularly have occasion to hold it like this...but, the point is the magnets are fine. yours may be misaligned, or otherwise damaged.

    if there are any nitpicks, I'd say that using the iPad in portrait mode with the device is an afterthought. ok, clearly there is no magnet in the iPad in this orientation. no, no marks against for the fact that it cannot be secured as it is in landscape. but, there is a little strip of rubber in the slot of the keyboard which is apparently there to hold the iPad in place when in portrait. I come to this conclusion because mine fell out. the adhesive is not very good and the rubber strip began to slide almost from day one. now, some months later the strip of rubber is simply gone--and now the iPad will not stay in the keyboard in portrait mode...the iPad is too top-heavy and it just falls rearward.

    again, that's just a nitpick because when in portrait mode, i prefer to just hold the iPad alone, and I put the keyboard away in a 3rd party neoprene case (that just happens to hold both the keyboard and iPad together very nicely). even when the rubber strip was still in the keyboard, the whole keyboard/iPad in portraid combo was very top-heavy and did not inspire confidence that the whole thing would crumble in my hands at any moment. again, just a nitpick and doesnt even warrant losing a star.

    as to the rest of the device, it i just perfect. there is not one thing i would change. the aluminum back matches the iPad's aluminum color perfectly. when used in "cover mode" the two pieces are essentially one, with great protection for the screen of the iPad. the keyboard and its shortcuts are very mac-like and become second nature almost immediately.

    i've tried the first logitech keyboard (920-003402) and one by newtrent IMP48S. Neither of these can hold a candle to this unit. I would not hesitate to buy this again.

    Awesome but with some flaws

    • Written by from New York

    Good.
    1. As one mentioned before, yes, the keyboard makes it comfortable for long-time input in the view from a programmer. I think the reason is the rub feeling on the keys surface, which makes my fingures connected to the keys.
    2. The genius design makes my iPad works like a laptop. I don't need to take my thinkpad x20 around anymore. Instead, the new "laptop" is light, touch-screen and deattachable.

    Bad.
    0. I hate apple products, except my iPad. Even the iPad crashes once a day.
    1. Shortcuts are not well supported. The most crazy one is you're not able to swich apps with the keyboard. But it seems not to be the problem of logitech but Apple.
    2. The poor funcational key design. No one wants to waste a keyboard position for paste/copy/cut.
    3. As reported by other users, the keyboard does have some issues. For example, duplicated input by a single press, it happens occasionally.

    Although there're some issues with the keyboard, it's the best one I've ever used. That's why I give it 5-star.

    Tis is a poor design. The attachment is similar to the smart cover but the keyboard is heavy. If you drop it, and you will, it will break off the keys and they will not assist in replacing keys.

    great keyboard, but poses a danger to the ipad!

    • Written by from oakland

    I'm on my second logitech keyboard, after the first was stolen along with my first iPad a few months back. I do a lot of my work on the iPad, and have found this keyboard indispensable to note-taking, along with AudioNote, which I use for interviews as a part of my job several times a week. However, the stand feature of the keyboard has worn out after only a few months of use, now twice in a row, meaning that i can put it in the groove, and it will stay standing... until it falls over. I thought the original time was a fluke, but now it's happened a second time. My iPad hasn't been damaged by this--yet. But it can't be good for it to be falling all the time, and so I can no longer trust the keyboard. What this means is that I'm now going to start carrying around the keyboard , while keeping the iPad in an actual case that will actually protect it. This defeats the purpose. It would be one thing if this happened after a year or two, but I've had this product three or four months... and it's not cheap.

    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.
