      Terrible hinge design. A step backwards.

      I have been a huge fan of the older version of this Logitech Ultra Thin Keyboard cover (the one for the iPad 2) for years now. Honestly, that is a 5-star produc I have been a huge fan of the older version of this Logitech Ultra Thin Keyboard cover (the one for the iPad 2) for years now. Honestly, that is a 5-star product and I cannot recommend it highly enough. However, this version of the keyboard for the iPad Air 2 is absolutely terrible. I got a new iPad recently and wanted to get the newer version of the case that would work with the thinner iPad Air 2. But Logitech has ruined an amazing product with an inferior hinge design and weaker magnets. The hinge on the older version of the keyboard was smooth edged and very sturdy. When you clipped it to your iPad and closed it, it was flush with the edge. It stuck out about the same amount as the Smart Cover did. However, the new hinge is bigger, has a sharp edge and sticks out from the back of the iPad by a considerable amount when closed. So not only is it uncomfortable to hold (sharp edge), but when I tried to slide it into the neoprene case I use when I travel, it caught on the case. No matter which direction you put it in the case, it's going to get caught either going into the case or coming out of it. And it's not like it was a new case. The iPad Air 2 is thinner than my old iPad, so there should theoretically be more room, since I used the same case. But it didn't make a difference. Still gets caught. I understand what they were trying to do when they added that sharp edge to the hinge. They wanted it to lie flat and flush when the keyboard is in use. But that is kind of a useless consideration in my opinion because when your iPad is in the slot, and you're using the keyboard, the hinge is behind the iPad. You can't see it. And you're not going to be moving it around a lot, so it's not like it can get in the way of anything. I'd rather have the hinge be flush when the case is closed rather than flush when it's open. I also feel that the magnets on this case are weaker. The iPad did not feel as secure in its slot when the keyboard is in use. And when the case is closed, the weaker hinge magnet combined with the fact that the sharp edge keeps getting caught on things makes me think this case is more likely to be dislodged. My boyfriend was thoughtful enough to get me this case to go with my new iPad Air 2, but sadly, I have had to return the keyboard since I am so unhappy with the new design. If Logitech were to make a version of their iPad 2 case with a thinner slot that works for the iPad Air 2, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. But this particular design is a no go.

      Disconnects and Errors - Widespread Issue

      This keyboard is a significant step down for Logitech. My Ultrathin keyboard for my old iPad 2 worked perfectly, but this new version is unbelievably useless. This keyboard is a significant step down for Logitech. My Ultrathin keyboard for my old iPad 2 worked perfectly, but this new version is unbelievably useless. The bluetooth signal constantly disconnects from the iPad Air 2 and takes a few seconds to reconnect, which severely impacts productivity. It also generally errors when it's about to disconnect by repeating the last button you hit about 15-20 times in a row. For example if I type "Apple," when the keyboard decides to disconnect it may instead type Applllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll and then cut out. The worst is when the last key I hit before it disconnects is 'delete' and it erases up to an entire sentence before disconnecting. At times it gets bad enough that I opt for using the on-screen keyboard rather than the Logitech keyboard since at least I know it will not suddenly stop working or delete/error in my work. This issue isn't isolated. Logitech's forums are filled with complaints about this exact same problem on this device and there's been no official response from Logitech. Just google "logitech ultrathin keyboard ipad air 2 disconnects" and the first result shows just how many people are dissatisfied with this keyboard. Apple has said that they're aware this product is flawed and that the source of the error lies on Logitech's end. Basically, avoid this keyboard at all costs. I'm actually shocked that Apple is still offering this keyboard in their store when they know it's a lemon.

      Almost as good as the previous version

      I like the keyboard and it really changes how I use my iPad day to day. I find I'm using it for my tasks when I have the keyboard. I was surprised to find out i I like the keyboard and it really changes how I use my iPad day to day. I find I'm using it for my tasks when I have the keyboard. I was surprised to find out it has a built in non-rechargable battery with an estimated 2 year life span when used 2 hours a day. I suspect it will last at least as long as it takes for another iPad form factor to come out and I'll need a new keyboard anyway. The previous version required occasionally plugging it into a USB port for re-charging worked well and I was able to go months between charges. I did note Logitech says the battery can be replaced as well. The only negative is the sharp edge of the magnetic clip when it is attached to the iPad. It is noticeably sharper than the previous version and makes it uncomfortable to hold on that edge. The previous version had a softer edge that felt better to me.

      Disappointing

      I should have read the reviews first. The thing that is really annoying is that only a few of the shortcut keys work. I hope this does not mean that my purchase I should have read the reviews first. The thing that is really annoying is that only a few of the shortcut keys work. I hope this does not mean that my purchase becomes a complete lemon. It is also a pity that Logitech does not seem to stand by its products. (I.e., respond to complaints in these forums). I will try to return this keyboard and see it I can get my money back.

      Disappointing Keyboard

      This is my second Logitech keyboard for iPad and wish I had read the reviews for this iteration before purchasing. My first keyboard actually outlasted my iPad This is my second Logitech keyboard for iPad and wish I had read the reviews for this iteration before purchasing. My first keyboard actually outlasted my iPad. This one lasted barely a month. I started having problems with the Bluetooth connection immediately. The keyboard went haywire sometimes as well. I would type one period, and thirty would appear on the screen. Then the battery, that is supposed to last for two years, died altogether after less than a month. With no way to recharge it, the keyboard is now useless. Very disappointing from Logitech.

      Do NOT buy this keyboard.

      I've gone through two of these keyboards in the past 12 months and it's been the most frustrating experience! Constant bluetooth dropouts to the point where it I've gone through two of these keyboards in the past 12 months and it's been the most frustrating experience! Constant bluetooth dropouts to the point where it stopped connecting altogether for a few days/weeks. I've tried replacing batteries, trying on different iPad's and the same problem persists - on two separate, complete new Ultrathin keyboards. Very disappointing given the success and reliability of Logitech's older keyboards. Also incredibly disappointing that Apple hasn't pulled this product off their website. An experience like this should not be associated with the Apple brand.
