    Great cover and keyboard combo.

    I love this product. It holds my iPad securely. I can get to the charging port easily even when the cover is on. The magnetic strip to hold the keyboard in place is awesome. Love the Red color. The only thing I am not sure about is the little leather piece on the side. I don't know if it is meant as a tab or if it is intended to hold a stylus.

    PS I have the IPad Air so mine is larger.

    Outstanding Overall Product!

    When I initially picked up my iPad mini, I wanted to go the minimalist route, and just purchased a regular magnetic thin top cover. It didn't take long to realize that not only did that cover not do the greatest job of protecting a rather expensive and relatively fragile device, but it also did not significantly add to one's grip on a sleek (and slick) frame.

    While looking into cover options I began to discover all the things my iPad could accomplish, with the added productivity of Pages, Numbers and Adobe Acrobat, and so I decided to go for a protective keyboard cover. This cover really adds to the overall usefulness and security of the iPad mini. As mentioned before, it turns a device otherwise best suited to browsing, listening, and watching, into a productive unit, compared to which my full sized laptop can only best it in a few areas, but with the added weight, heat, and general cumbersomeness of a standard laptop.

    The cover is both padded and protective, as well as gives you a great grip on the device. The only complaints I have (and they are mild) are 1) that the mute/screen lock button is difficult to access with the way that the curvature of the lid partially obscures it, and 2) as far as I can tell, there is no way to gauge what remains of the keyboard's battery life, either via the keyboard itself or through your iPad interface, only a blue light for connectivity and a green light to show sufficient charge. Other than those two small issues, it's really a fantastic accessory!

    It really protects the ipad. It fits snugly into 2 rubber corners in the case, and stands up into reading position in landscape with a magnet holding the bottom of the iPad. Hard to explain, but it works!

    With my big hands, the keyboard is small and takes some getting used to. Much better than hunting and pecking on the on screen keyboard, though! Over time you will acclimate to the smaller keyboard.

    Pricey, but well made and very functional!

    All I can say is WOW! This product is a must for anyone who uses an iPad Mini. It turns it into a computer just whoosh, like that! Once I got used to the size of the keyboard I find I use it almost as much as I do my laptop. I especially like how you can use the keyboard and also tap the screen. Neat! How did I ever get along without this? I LOVE IT!
