This is an excellent keyboard, small but has to be. Love the extra keys for copy & paste. Also special key for itunes music, lock, home button, Siri and virtual keyboard popup. Many special keys.
The downside is no device protection. Both the back side of the iPad and the keyboard are exposed. So I can see both units getting scratched easy. Also when closed together only one side has magnets so it can easily flip open and crash. No latch/magnets to keep the devices together. Logitech should have included a small slip case to protect both units.
Most of the keyboard smart covers out there add a lot of weight and bulk to the iPad mini, but this one keeps it light and attaches extremely well. I just wish it left room for a back cover to either snap on or it came with a thin one to attach. Then I would give it give stars.
