      Not perfect, but better than Apple Keyboard

      Biggest complaint is the overall thickness of the keyboard and case. There is a 3-4 mm gap from the iPad screen to the top of the case. This is to accommodate t Biggest complaint is the overall thickness of the keyboard and case. There is a 3-4 mm gap from the iPad screen to the top of the case. This is to accommodate the "hump" on the keyboard when you close it. The keys are in no danger of touching the screen, as the keyboard rests on the outside rim of the case. It works perfectly if you usually cram your iPad into a cramped backpack, and the iPad Pro is protected really well. In a nutshell its designed to close by pulling the iPad down onto the keyboard, then closing the kickstand (like closing the screen on a MacBook etc.) The stand uses spring hinges, so its fully adjustable from roughly 20 degrees to 110 degrees. This is really nice when using the keyboard on varied surfaces as you can angle it perfectly (i.e. Your lap, a bar table, etc.) The pencil holder works fine too--no risk of it falling out. The real standout however, is the keyboard itself. The fact that its backlit, uses the smart connector and has iPad specific keys (Home, search, screen lock) plus the usual--brightness, play/pause, volume, keyboard brightness is awesome. The keyboard starts to dim after not touching it for 5 seconds, then totally fades out after 8-10. Touching any key again and it's back on (not instant on, it just brightens back up very quickly, like maybe a full second, looks nice). I think once iOS 11 rolls out this keyboard case will be perfect for someone who is looking to replace the functionality of a MacBook. When I traveled in the past I would need to take my MacBook Air and my iPad Air 2...Then for short trips I was able to just use my iPad Pro 9.7...It was great in a pinch but still couldn't replace my MacBook because the keys are cramped, its not backlit etc, not to mention the lack of functionality in iOS. If I needed to work for more than an hour at a time I would borrow my wife's MacBook Air. Not the case for this keyboard--it is very comfortable to work with for long periods of time. Once iOS 11 goes live this case, along with my LTE iPad Pro should allow me to finally mothball the MacBook Air.

A little background to start...I'm coming from an iPad Air 2 where I used a Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro keyboard case that I absolutely loved. It added protection as well as a great keyboard with little bulk. Plus the iPad itself was fully detachable in a very slim case. I thought I'd get the same from Logitech but calling this case "slip" is a cruel joke. For some reason it's designed to have about 3mm of open space between the keyboard and iPad when closed--it's thicker than my macbook pro. Add to that the keyboard and case itself are very bulky and cheap feeling and this thing is really unacceptable. When detached the separate case on the iPad itself has a huge lip around all sides which makes it very uncomfortable to use and the kickstand feels like it will break. I wish there was a better option like my old Belkin that offered a lighted keyboard with function keys and little bulk. The apple keyboard cover is too flimsy for my use (and there's no pencil holder or back cover!) but it may be my temporary solution until something better comes along.

It's made out of a hard plastic material that feels absolutely cheap considering how much you pay for the case. Perhaps worst of all though, the case sticks out a couple inches from the top of the iPad, it fits horribly! Plus, the keyboard has this weird black protrusion it the top of it, not sure if it's a battery or what. Weighs way too much and adds way too much bulk, the kickstand feels like it may break any second. I hope they make an effort to re-engineer it but until then, I won't be keeping it. Don't buy this case!

      Expectations too high

      I’ve had iPads since they were introduced and upgraded from iPad Air 2 with very high expectations of using a keyboard and the Pro and new iOS 11 for more “real I’ve had iPads since they were introduced and upgraded from iPad Air 2 with very high expectations of using a keyboard and the Pro and new iOS 11 for more “real work”. The only disappointment has been this keyboard / combo but I think it’s mostly due to my own inflated expectations. I’d been listening for some time to podcasts extolling the virtues of Logitech keyboards and I’d heard some of the issues with the Apple keyboard. So seeing the name for this one when ordering the 10.5 pro, I thought it’d be perfect. Backlight, full-stroke feel, etc. Here are my opinions/experience, some of which differ from many reviewers: Pros: + Keyboard “feel” when typing - pretty good. Better than other Apple keyboards I’ve had. + Backlighting - nice! + Full protection when both back and keyboard are closed around the iPad + I actually like the “lip” around the back case, because when you don’t have the keyboard connected, the screen is exposed and the lip gives me a bit more of a secure grasp when carrying the ipad. I’ve also dropped the iPad once (gasp) and the lip protected the screen. + Love, love, love the stand in the back that everyone keeps complaining about. Maybe it will get looser over time, that’s a worry, but it’s extremely sturdy now and very adjustable to a range of angles. I do not type on my iPads on my lap though. I always hated doing so with laptops as well and won’t do it. So yes, if you really like to type on your lap, this isn’t for you. But if you like to put it on a flat surface in front of you and adjust it to that “just right” angle for the viewing you prefer at that particular moment (table, countertop, airline tray table, on the bed beside you) it’s great! Other ipad stands I’ve had over the years force you to pick from just a few fixed elevation angles. And those sometimes wear out over time too. + I like having a secure place for the pencil. I’m really afraid of losing the darn thing. I can’t seem to hang on to any pencil or pen I use. I love the pencil too by the way — you gotta get one if you have a Pro. Cons: - Biggest frustration — by far — to me is the darn “lock screen” key in the upper right. I just can’t get used to it. Many’s the time I go to hit the delete key with my right pinkie and hit the lock screen key which is just above the delete. Extremely frustrating to be in mid-thought while typing and had the iPad go black and lock on you! Maybe over time I can retrain my fingers enough so that it isn’t much of a problem (I’ve had to get used to many keyboards over time including Apple’s own so I know I’m trainable). I currently cycle between 4 different keyboards between work, laptops, and ipad. None of the other 3 shut down on me if I hit the wrong key though... Right now I’d be much happier if I could disable it or change the functionality or triggering somehow. Maybe a double-tap to cause it to lock or something. - It is bulkier when closed than I thought it would be. My interpretation of “slim” is much slimmer anyway. - Ditto for weight. Heavier than I expected. - The plastic keyboard does feel a little cheap but not as bad as some imply. - No escape key. Now I’m not entirely sure that’s so bad with the iPad. I use it all the time with laptops and desktops, but the OS and applications tend to encourage it to get out of something. On the iPad you simply touch somewhere else. I’m still getting used to the keyboard/touch-the-screen sort of interaction needed with an iPad+keyboard so maybe with time that feeling of missing the escape key will go away. So, again, I think my own expectations led to my middling review. Over time I may come to love it as I get used to it. However the pro, OS 11, pencil along with the functionality of keyboard have me pretty happy right now!

No form of resets, or updates to the iPad could get it to work. I tried to get it replaced by Logitech, and 2 weeks into it, I'm still going round and round through their generic email responses. Worst Logitech product I have ever owned, wish I had waited for something better to come along.

First off, I'm a huge fan of Logitech's create keyboard case. I loved it on my ipad pro 9.7". The slim combo for the ipad pro 10.5" was a terrible case. I like what Logitech was going for, but they didn't quiet get there. First off the thing is huge! it's not slim in any way. it easily quadrupled the thickness of the ipad, making it bigger than a mac book. it's very well protected, but looks terrible and is heavy. they put a rounded back on the piece that the ipad sits in. WHY? When using the ipad by itself and you go to set it down, it sits there and rocks. Granted you can set it face down...It has a huge lip that protects the screen, but if you're trying to write with apple pencil, forget it. the keyboard was good, but detached very easily. Overall, i was shocked that Logitech put that case out.
