    Logitech has made some great products. This is not one of them. My rating is based on the following problems:
    1. The keyboard connection is very buggy. The keyboard worked the first time I set it up on my iPad Pro 10.5 inch, but after that it wouldn’t type at all. I had to disconnect the keyboard from the case, turn the ipad off, restart it, re-attach the keyboard and then it started working.
    2. It is not lap-friendly. It can be used on the lap in a manner of speaking, but it is precarious at best
    3. The delete key and the lock-down key are way too close to each other. I’m typing away, have to delete something and off goes the ipad.

    I like the feel of the keyboard, but the bugginess is going to have me looking elsewhere unless Logitech comes up with a better solution. Sorry, I cannot recommend this product.

    Don’t do it!

    Definitely not worth the money and very disappointing. So disappointing that I feel the need to write my first review ever. There are way better options out there! The idea behind this is a great one, but the failure is in the execution. Like others have said, it’s not “slim” by any definition. That I can live with, and the keyboard itself really is great. The big issue is the connection between the two parts - it’s highly inadequate! The keyboard comes disconnected all the time, and I’ve lost track of how many times it has fallen off and clattered on the floor. I should know by now, but one forgets you can’t move the device from one place to another without closing it up or holding both parts. It also comes disconnected when just in your bag - which leaves the screen exposed to whatever can get at it. In short, the two parts NEED to much more strongly connected, and it needs to close better.

    Best of the Worst

    Unfortunately there are only 2 keyboards being offered so far for the 10.5" Ipad Pro. In my opinion the Logitech Slim Combo is the better of the two but still not great. The pluses are it provides excellent protection for the Ipad including the corners, has a back lit keyboard and a storage sleeve for the Apple Pencil The minuses are the keyboard connection is quite floppy and I'm concerned it wont last long, plus you cannot use it on your lap. The keyboard slants one way and the Ipad another. It works on a solid surface only. It will suffice for now but hopefully a better design comes along soon.

    Works but stops iPad from charging

    Good sturdy/bulky case. Keyboard works well; only problem now is that with the latest updates the iPad stops charging when the keyboard is connected. Updates needed and Apple and/or Logitech needs to actually address this issue.

    REALLY, REALLY Disappointed

    I bought this keyboard because of the backlight on the keys and the easy touch keypad and haven't been disappointed on that front. HOWEVER, I chose to go against all the reviews regarding the cheap plastic case and large size. I could overcome that for the backlighting except for the fact the my iPad has fallen off a TV tray and table 2 times because it takes up so much space and slides easily on hard services with the plastic. When it fell, the top easily detached from the keyboard and down it went. At $800 a crack, the last thing I want is to break the face of my new iPad. Also, there is literally no stability between the keyboard and the iPad. When on an uneven surface, you have to position it just right to work with it.

    Returning it tomorrow for the Apple keyboard (without the backlight). Dang

    Worst case ever.

    This is a great case if you don't care about the keyboard working all the time and want to carry an ipad in a case that makes it more thick than a Macbook Pro. This thing is the most awkward, least well designed case ever. I've had logitec keyboard cases before and they've been great. This one is a loser.

    This should be withdrawn then made properly!

    I’ve always been a fan of Logitech iPad cases/keyboards so I assumed for £109.95 this would be the usual high standard so did not bother looking at reviews, however, I wish I did. I feel like I have spent premium money on a cheap ebay £9 grade case/keyboard.

    The case as reported by others is not slim, but i think this is in part to the keyboard section being thicker towards the rear to elevate the keyboard when typing, thickness isn’t a real issue for me, I want something that protects the iPad. The plastic on this case does not feel premium and the addition of some nice feel rubber in places would probably make it feel more nice to hold.

    This case feels very much rushed from design to manufacture.

    Some issues I have:

    - The keyboard comes away from the case easily, too easily so it’s always coming apart with the least amount of movement.
    - It has intermittant connection issues, I have to keep detaching and re-attaching when I want to use it
    - The case cannot be folded back on itself as the smart connector isnt long enough and the magnet power isnt strong enough anyway, so you have to detach the keyboard if you want to use the ipad as a tablet, this means you have a loose keyboard hanging about which if your on a busy train or other public transport this isnt ideal.

    I rated this 1 star mainly for the back lit keys.

    The keys themselves are nice to type on but sadly, the overal design is very poor for a high priced suppose premium keyboard

    Terrible Case

    The case (along with the iPad) was suppose to replace my laptop.... yes a laptop starts with the word lap - and this case does not allow me to use it on my lap. It only works on solid surfaces and that is incredibly inconvient. I would have given zero stars if I could have. I don't normally write reviews but this was probably the worst purchase I have ever made - and I am incredibly disappointed in apple because they normally support great products. And at this price point you should be supporting great products! Beyond dissatisfied!

    Good Try, but issues

    - Keyboard is convenient on flat, supported surfaces
    - Case protects the back of iPad Pro
    - Slot for Apple Pencil (material may perform differently as it expands/contracts slightly in various weather)

    - Caps lock key does not function properly. Instead, it cycles through my available keyboard settings (English/Mandarin/Emoji). There is already a button for that.
    - Lage gap between screen and keyboard when close... Why not make the keyboard sit flush in side the case rim or leave just a few millimeters?
    - Fabric on opposite side of the keyboard is far from ideal. A rubberized material would be better for grip and easier to clean.

    I would not need this if Apple keyboard offered pencil holder and some combination of protection for the back of iPad.

    Brilliant keyboard, bulky protection, yet still very portable

    The combined weight of this keyboard with the case and the ipad is around 1.2kg. The average weight of common mid-range windows laptop on the market is around 2kg. And this is my all important prelude.

    Characteristics of the case: It looks simple and professional, as well as practical. I believe bottom of the keyboard is waterproof to some extent. It definitely bulks up the bare ipad a lot.

    Protection: A huge lip for the front of the screen around 1cm is the consummate faculty of this case imho (with the exception of the keyboard itself). So you can drop your ipad face down from the top of the Emley Moor Mast onto a concrete floor with no besmirch to the screen, I am confident to say.

    Keyboard: Plastic, tactile, individual keys and brilliant features (function keys and backlight) make it better than most ordinary windows-laptop keybaords on the market right now. I have above average sized hands and stumpy finger tips yet the keys are large enough for precise typing.

    Any gripes? Yes - my case came a little marked on the outside (underneath the keyboard). I think it is a manufacture or factory error, as it was brand new anyway. But I cant be bothered to return it so ill just use it regardless. Also the kick-stand is quite wobbly and has some extra headroom, which I think is deliberate but still piques my unreasonable self. Also, unless you are Shaquille O'neal, you'll find it hard to fit the entirety of the edifice on your lap to type with what with the kickstand out and all.

    Happy with the function so far

    I've seen mixed reviews and was not sure what to think. I do like the keyboard and find the smart connection to work great. The magnet could be stronger but in practice it doesn't seem to be an issue. I really bought this keyboard to get more "laptop" type use out of my iPad investment. I also really like the full protection it offers the iPad compared to the apple option-which is also nice. The increased size is not an issue for me because I drop things and they break! My phone has been in a case for years and it has save me many times over. I just did not want to take a risk with a new iPad Pro and the $$ invested.

    I like that I can leave the keyboard at home if I want and just have the basic iPad protection as well. No -I can use it on my lap-but that is not a need for me. I'm almost always at a table for typing work and if I'm just reading I detach the keyboard. It appears top be durable. I hope to get two plus years out of the case and keyboard-anything beyond that and I'll be very happy.

    I don't use a pencil so I can't say how the holder works. I use it as a tab to open the case.

    Surprised by how much I like the IPad Pro and this keyboard/case make it more useful for me and so I'd recommend people give it a try. You can always return in in two weeks if not satisfied.

    Sorry back to the drawing board

    Having already got a Logitech Create for my 9.7" iPad Pro, when I bought my 10.5" i went straight for the latest product from Logitech, the Slim Combo. However after 2 days of use it went straight back to Apple as it's just not fit for purpose. The case now comes in 2 parts (not 1 like the create) which means the 2 pieces are easily separated and therefore doesn't robustly protect your iPad and doesn't feel secure. Additionally, the images on the website are different to the actual product, there's a much longer support area in from of the keyboard with the Slim Combo which mean that you then have to pull out an extra leg to support the screen when typing in a landscape position. Would love a Logitech Create for a 10.5" but not this slim combo.

    a miss

    Order the slim combo but had not had a chance to play with it, its the only backlit available with smart connectors.
    Its bulky, its very clumsy to set up with the kick stand (no need to mimic Surface).. just to turn it into a workhorse is a chore...
    i have gone back to using the UAG cover with the smart key board (from 9.7") until another solution comes.
    just wasted over a hundred bucks..

    Sloppy workmanship

    The keyboard stops communicating properly with the iPad randomly. I will be typing along and then nothing, if I disconnect the keyboard and reconnect it it will start typing again.

    I'd like to know if any other users are experiancing this intermittent connectivity issues.

    This is NOT a slim keyboard and when it is closed it is kind of sloppy how it closes. Logitech could have come up with something better than this.

    Excellent Case

    After reading the reviews i thought i would be sending this case back. But no i really like it, its plastic sure not leather but offers good protection. Its not slim but its a case and keyboard so! Love how the ipad with stand can be seperated easily from the keyboard and it works great. Keyboard is excellent with the back light and functions, and pencil holder too.
    So glad i tried it, also found it cheaper on a Apple re seller store and Apple refunded me $60.
    Dont hesitate if you after a case like this.

    I really like this case

    I personally love this case. I bought the apple keyboard, but returned it because I hated typing on it. I wanted a case that included a keyboard and would protect the iPad itself so I ordered the Logitech. I read some reviews about it being too bulky, but I feel that it's thick enough to actually protect the iPad if I drop it. I like that it has the Apple Pencil/ stylus sleeve. I also like the adjustable kickstand. I haven't used the keyboard much yet but I can already tell that I like it much more than the apple keyboard. I would recommand trying this case to others.

    Serious step back.

    I ordered the Slim Combo 10.5 and before it shipped I got to play with a friend's device he already received. Long story short: The "Slim Combo" is massive and a serious step back from the Create. I immediately cancelled my order and picked a $30 case with BT keyboard instead. "Why?" you might ask. Well, glad you asked ...

    Let's start with the obvious: "Slim" may be a matter of opinion but when you look at "predecessors" it hard to follow the "slim" beyond the name. The iPad Air 2, Pro 9.7 and Pro 10.5 are all about the same thickness. However, the Type+ is 0.7" (for Air 2) and the Create (for Pro 9.7) is 0.9" thick. The "Slim Combo" is a comparatively massive 1.06" thick. That's even by laptop standards not thin or slim anymore. Numbers can be deceiving, but this even feels massive (and heavy).

    The Pencil holder is now on the outside. Probably was meant to be a good idea, but the exposure does make the glossy Pencil prone to scratches and especially to losing the cap for the connector, which is only held on by a relatively weak magnet.

    The removable keyboard sounds good, and I personally don't need it to be removable. In fact, it comes off so easily that I wish it wasn't, and the perceived value of being able to remove the keyboard is overshadowed by the flimsy design.

    Last but not least, the materials feel plain cheap (which is unusual for Logitech) and the stand is a lot like a Surface tablet from Microsoft. While I don't care for that design, it simply tries too hard to be something it's not, and the footprint does NOT work for Economy tray tables. Overall a big miss.

    There are positive sides to the (not-so-) Slim Combo. Namely the use of the Smart Connector and especially the backlit keyboard. In that regard it's much better than Apple Smart Keyboard, but the other issues simply were too strong for me to accept at the $130 price level.

    poor when compared to Create

    It Is very poor when compared to Create.It may work for some But it is not friendly for Using in the lap And the overall I think it is inferior to Create. Top or keyboard keeps falling of and getting detached.When you release a Create model for 10.5 inch iPad I can throw this one away.

    Nice but...

    The case certainly does what it's advertised to do - it protects the iPad from most knocks and bumps, has a nice keyboard, and a loop to hold the Pencil. But the darned thing weighs a ton. It more than doubles the weight of the iPad. It feels like one of those old IBM rectangular ThinkPads. Popping off the keyboard is simple and easy, but the case around the iPad itself is what's heavy and bulky. It's NOT comfortable to hold for reading in bed. I'm still in the 14 day return period, so I'm not sure...

    Not worth the price

    Functional but poor material not worth $199, it'd better to buy one from ebxx.
