    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 timesaver

    • Written by from Dorchester

    Contrary to the pictures in the preview, you can set your iPad up vertically. Judging by the pictures I was worried I'd have to my iPad 4 in landscape mode (horizontal) so it would stay in place. My iPad sits at a perfect angle (especially vertically) when sitting in the logitech's placeholder. The bluetooth was immediately recognized and paired immediately. No having to type in numbers. Just be sure to turn on bluetooth in your settings and charge your keyboard beforehand. It says one charge will last about 6 months if you use the keyboard a few hours a day, so I have no idea if it's true or not. Though not a typical "full size" keyboard, it has arrow keys!!! Why Apple doesn't have arrow keys on it's on-screen keyboard is beyond me. If there is a way to add arrow keys, I haven't figured it out. Why is that important? Try sticking a finger in the exact spot of a paragraph to add a missing apostrophe or delete an extra letter.

    This alone, at least to me, makes it worth the price. It's also well-made, sturdy, and makes a great case when you're done using it. As I said before, I have the iPad 4, and while this keyboard like some others does not allow you to charge your iPad, you'll have to look elsewhere. There is no slot for the new dock connector or the old 30-pin one. But what it lacks there, it more than makes up for in speeding up your typing. If you are used to typing 55 words per minutes, you'll be in luck. With Apple's built-in spell checker, you'll never misspell a word again. The keyboard also has function keys, a home button (which behaves just like the iPad's), caps locks, delete key, numbers at the top, and more. Alas, no command+tabbing to switch between open apps (if you're reading this Logitech, please fix that!). All your shortcut keys work just like on a Mac (select all, copy, paste, etc...), and again, it has arrow keys. This is worth every penny and with free shipping from Apple it's cheaper than most stores.

    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.

    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.

    Greatest Keyboard around

    • Written by from Albertville

    I have had this keyboard for about 5 months now and I absolutely love it. My iPad stays in place without a problem. I have a jack russell who jumps all over me and it never has fallen out of the magnetic track while I am using it. The battery lasts forever. I have only had to charge mine 3 times in 5 months and I am on this iPad almost every evening. It magnetically attaches to closing clip with no effort at all and closes very snug. I never had used any other keyboard other than this one and I never will. Great Quality and worth every penny I paid for it. I would tell anyone looking for a high quality keyboard to go for this one. It has never failed me and you really get what you pay for. Great product!!!!

    A Fragile Hinge

    • Written by from LEWISBURG

    Good keyboard. But the hinge for use as an iPad cover is too frail. I, for one, would be willing to pay more for a keyboard/cover with a magnetic hinge made of aircraft aluminum.

    We love this...

    • Written by from Riverside

    We would highly recommend this. The keyboard is very nice and sits well at a table or meeting. The angle of the ipad while in the upright position is perfect for viewing while typing or listening. This is a functional, well made, good looking product, that works great. It is sturdy, protective, and sleek. The magnets are strong, but we may purchase a neoprene cover to keep it solid during transport.

    I have been using this keyboard for over a month now, and have no regrets. The keys feel excellent, the additional functions are great, it's light and it looks like it belongs on the ipad. A fantastic keyboard that I would definitely recommend to friends!

    Really Ultrathin

    • Written by from san francisco

    Loving my new keyboard for iPad 2. It looks super sleek and shiny. Keys are comfortable to feel under your fingers and type, in addition, there are several shortcuts so you don't miss the mouse....

    The case is really ultra thin and light and it attaches the same way than the smart cover but the back is even better: it protects, goes in sleep mode and it looks just like the back of the iPad..... sweet!!!

    Great positioning to watch movie and read too..... Definitely an iPad PLUS !

    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.

    well made yet annoyigly exposed

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I really like this product on a whole, it connects well, types nicely and works with the app pages. However for such an expensive product you'd think it would be compatible with a back cover. So every time you use this the back side f your ipad is unprotected. All I can say is I'm glad i have geek squad insurance.

    Works like a charm

    • Written by from Naugatuck

    Took all of 5 seconds to get set up. Integration with the iPad is fantastic and it actually (finally) starts to make working in non email/text/photo apps (e.g. spreadsheets) 10x easier. One downside, you can't flip it over if you just want to use the screen interface, but (at least for me) it's a minor change in habit more than anything.

    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.

    COOL GADGET, BUT...

    • Written by from West Palm Beach

    I LIKE THIS KEYBOARD AS A STURDY STAND WHILE TYPING. THE ONLY THINGS I'M DISAPPOINTED BY IS IT DOESN'T HAVE SKIP OR FAST FOWARD FOR MUSIC, ONLY PLAY OR PAUSE, AND NO BRIGHTNESS CONTROLS. HOWEVER, IT IS GREAT FOR USING AS A STAND WHILE TYPING, AND WATCHING VIDEOS. IT ASLO HAS SPECIAL COMMAND KEYS THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DELETE WHOLE WORDS AT A TIME, AND DOES CONTROL VOLUME. IT HAS SOME UNIQUE FEATURES. BUT I PERSONALLY WOULDN'T USE IT ALONE AS A COVER FOR THE IPAD. I USE MINE TOGETHER WITH ANOTHER CASE TO KEEP EVERYTHING NEATLY TOGETHER.

    Best iPad Keyboard Out There

    • Written by from Centennial

    I've had this keyboard for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. It works perfectly every time I go to use it. Just flip the switch and in about 2 seconds you can start typing. So great.

    My one qualm with the keyboard is the glossy finish on the top. I'd rather it be a matte finish because the glossy finish gathers fingerprints incredibly quick. They are easy to wipe off, it's just a pain. But, really, that's the worst thing about this product and it's pretty nit-picky.

    Overall, it's better than even using the basic Apple bluetooth keyboard because of its design, ability to double as a cover, and fantastic battery life.
