    Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio breaks

    • Written by from San Jose

    I bought the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio 9 months ago for my ipad. The clip that holds the ipad in place breaks easily with normal use, so I've been really careful with it. I mostly leave the ipad in the folio, and rarely take it out. Logitech replaces the product, but I am now on my third replacement. Some of the keys don't function (tab key is one). Two stars because at least replacement is relatively easy, but for the price buy something else.

    Great functionality but breaks easily

    I really enjoyed working with this keyboard. Using the Ultrathin Keyboard Folio with the latest iPad equipped with the full suite of Office software enabled the device to become a defacto alternative for my laptop, particularly in business meetings. Unfortunately, the fragility of the plastic clip which held the iPad in place limits the utility of the keyboard. This design and materials flaw, which apparently is quite common, renders this product unworthy of its high cost. Until such time as Logitech improves the clip, do not waste $100 on this keyboard.

    Poor usability

    As a previous owner and heavy user of the version for the normal-sized iPad (which is excellent), I bought this one for my new iPad mini.

    To solve the challenge of the smaller footprint, Logitech chose to get rid of the Tab key! You have to press "function + Q" to get this to work, and they made it so you have to use your left hand for both keys.. hence typing is slowed down considerably when you need to tab (which is more than you may think), as you have to physically move your hand from the home position to simultaneously press those keys.

    The other problem is the tilt on the iPad is pretty close to perpendicular so if you want to view the screen you almost need to put a wedge under the keyboard to get the screen a the right angle.

    I do not recommend this product until they fix these two problems. If they did, the remaining features of the product would be closer to 4 stars.

    Filthy Cover

    I love everything about this keyboard case, but the red picks up prints and dirt and does not come clean, despite everything we've tried. Hoping my local Apple will exchange it for a black one. I have searched everywhere for cleaning instructions, but as yet have found nothing. I've had it for three weeks and I'm embarrassed to carry it--and I've been careful! Also, there is only a two-week window to return it, so be aware. If I could post a photo here I would. It's a shame; lovely product otherwise.
