      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.

      Massive disappointment

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!

      Great, but not perfect

      I didn’t know what the smart connect was when I bought my iPad Pro 10.5. I knew I wanted a keyboard and I spent a lot of time looking for 3rd party options. T I didn’t know what the smart connect was when I bought my iPad Pro 10.5. I knew I wanted a keyboard and I spent a lot of time looking for 3rd party options. There were a few I found that I liked. The Valkit Bluetooth keyboard was probably the best one I found out there. But, this Logitech was immediately a standout. I wasn’t even turned off by the price. Here’s what makes it superb (Keep in mind that the combination of these features make it what it is). 1. Smart Connect (no charging, it connects via magnet and works right away. No charging is a big plus. This one edges out the apple keyboard because it adds some protection and costs less. 2. The case allows for an adjustable screen angle with an impressive range. It even has a portrait position if you’re into that sort of thing. 3. Almost full size keys. Other keyboards have small keys. 4. Backlit keyboard (maybe seems frivolous, but it’s totally important once you know it exists. It’s also “spillproof’, but I didn’t test that. Proceed with skepticism. Better yet, don’t spill on your keyboard! 5. There’s a bar above the numbers for quick commands similar to what you’d see on your MacBook. The Valkit uses a Function button to activate. 6. The case has a firm hold on the iPad so it doesn’t slip, but even better, it interacts with the screen in a way that allows you to have a screen protector on it. Here’s what disappointed me 1. When set up, it’s not incredibly sturdy. If you pick up the iPad, the keyboard is going to fall off. I didn’t think that would be important until it happened. I was more bummed than I would have expected. Also affects using it while on your lap. 2. It’s kind of bulky. I don’t have concerns about it keeping my iPad safe, but it’s not as slick/slender as I was hoping for when bundled up.

Great Idea, terrible execution. The Ipad wont stay connected while it is set in place and only connects when I hold the Ipad up to the keyboard. Save yourself some money and go with any other case available. Very disappointed.

      Keyboard and buttons the highlight - other wise could do better...

      When it works, the keyboard is arguably the best iPad keyboard ever - the keys are well placed, nicely crafted and have just the right amount of travel and feel When it works, the keyboard is arguably the best iPad keyboard ever - the keys are well placed, nicely crafted and have just the right amount of travel and feel. However, this is all spoiled by a dodgy connection. The keyboard communicates with the iPad via the smart connector and is held in place by magnets. Unfortunately, the connector becomes misaligned very easily and then the connection is lost. I use the iPad for making notes on the go and will often move from typing on a desk to typing on my lap and just transferring from one position to another is enough to shift the connector to the point where connection is lost. Most frustrating, but it's not all Logitech's fault - Apple obviously decided a more secure docking point (like the Surface Pro for example) would upset the smooth lines of iPad, but it's those smooth lines that allow the connector to slide around. Other than the smart connector issue, while it adds considerably to the bulk of the iPad, the build quality of this case is excellent - it's solid and scratch-resistant. Also, the power button is perfectly positioned - it's even easier to find and click than when the iPad is naked. Haven't had a problem with the kick stand - it just works without complaint. While Logitech Slim Combo is not intended to turn the iPad into a 'me-too' laptop (like many other keyboard cases), I am not keen on the the way the designer relies completely on the magnetic smart connector to keep the two parts of the case together. I got used to it (having to unfold it carefully so as not to pull it apart) but i don't feel I should be adapting my usage of the product just to align with the designer's lack of vision? In all, I'll keep the case for now but I am keeping a close eye on Zagg in the hope they will adapt their slim-book concept to the iPad Pro 10.5.
