    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.

    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.

    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??

    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.

    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.
