    Functional, but definitely not slim!

    I purchased the keyboard, hoping it would be like Apple's Smart Keyboard but with coverage of the back of the device. It does cover the back of the device but boy, is it a bulky case! The keyboard itself has a nice feel but the materials are a hard plastic and not at all what I expected for such sleek tablet. Also would have liked the function keys to have the option of using as F1, F2, F3, etc. After much deliberation, I'm returning this keyboard, keeping my fingers crossed for something more sleek.

    Nothing slim about it!

    I will echo what everyone else has said: It has so much potential, love the backlit keyboard, etc., but to call this SLIM...is a joke. Nothing slim about it. How on earth this made it to production, I don't know. The original Logi Create Case seems thinner than this one. There is a huge gap between the screen and keyboard when closed that add to the massive bulk. Also that half inch lip around the back cover that turns the iPad itself into a bulky item and losses the entire point of the iPad...SLIM SIZE!

    They really missed the mark on this with the design. But functionality is great. I want to like this case, but I just can't. I'll have to return it.

    Worst iPad case in the entire history of the device

    This case takes what is a beautiful, elegant, thin tablet and surrounds it with hard plastic and makes it thicker and larger than the largest Windows laptop. What I was hoping was that this was the equivalent of the Logitech Type+ case for the iPad Air 2. The Type+ case is thin and well suited for business use of the tablet. This "Slim Combo" is anything but Slim - it now makes the Ipad 3x thicker than the iPad itself. I am returning this tablet to the Apple Store.

    Returned - Impossible to fold back without the keyboard detaching itself.

    As mentioned by others: You cannot fold the cover for the Logitech Slim Combo for 10.5 Ipad pro without the keyboard completely detaching itself EACH AND EVERY TIME. This is a design flaw that the Logitech cover for the 9.7 Ipad pro did not have. The 9.7 edition was practical and user friendly. What are you supposed to do with the keyboard on the 10.5 when you fold the cover back and it detaches itself? I totally agree with another reviewer who wrote "The execution of the whole design just left me feeling like no one on their design team must have tested this with real people."

    It’s really big

    The case is well made and looks good. My issue is that’s it’s so big and the iPad sits really far back inside the case. The design and size makes it difficult to use the iPad as a tablet. I found myself looking for a track pad while using it. The closing mechanism isn’t as strong as it should be. If you would like a strong case that provides ample protection and has a keyboard this will be fine. If you bought the iPad because it’s thin and slick then this won’t work.

    Pure garbage

    Compared to the same product for the old iPad Pro, this thing is terrible. The detachable keyboard is awful and the whole thing is cheap feeling.

    NOT SLIM

    To be fair the keyboard works fine other than falling off easily. The kickstand works well. When I get something else I hope the stand is functional like this one is. Now, this is why I rated one star and am returning the case, it is NOT SLIM at all. It should be called the Logitech bulky combo. The whole point for most people is to have a slim, light set up. This combo makes the iPad thicker than a laptop, and adds too much weight. Bottom line, it is functional, but way to bulky.

    Someone really out of touch designed this.

    Oy. I researched, but I didn't read the reviews before purchasing like I should have. My family's had so many great Logitech products over our Apple years I was just so sure that I was going to love this product. The materials seem to be high quality, making the case very sturdy and handsome. Unfortunately everything else totally misses the mark. It more than doubles the weight and thickness of the iPad. The case loaded is as at least as heavy as my 2010 Macbook Air. There's this chasm of wasted space on the interior in between the screen and the keyboard. I can't see this serving any other function other than making the unit 3 times thicker than the actual iPad and trapping all kinds of interesting debris and miscellany from purse/backpack and funky-ing up the keyboard. The real deal breaker for me though, was the fact that you cannot fold the keyboard cover back like a book AT ALL. It pops off every time. This is not conducive to the way a lot of people frequently use their mobile devices. I can imagine myself standing in line at the airport or the bank and wanting to pull it out to check something really quick. What are you supposed to do with the keyboard in frazzle-y standing on-the-go situations like that. "Here, hold this?" I wouldn't want to just throw the keyboard loose in my purse for damage reasons. So if you don't want the keyboard temporarily, you have to automatically also give up your screen protection too. The execution of the whole design just left me feeling like no one on their design team must have tested this with real people.

    The word "slim" should appear nowhere in the description of this item

    The thing is the opposite of slim. I HIGHLY recommend you take a look at one in person at the Apple Store before you pull the trigger. Mine will be going back tomorrow.

    Some good things and some not so good things

    Likes

    The keyboard is backlit and has function keys. It's easy to type on.
    The Apple Pencil holder is incorporated
    The ability to set the display angle (is flexible)
    It is robust
    Works off of the iPad connector (no extra batteries or Bluetooth connection required)

    Don't Likes

    Compared to the Apple Smart Keyboard, this is NOT slim. The entire setup (back cover and keyboard) make it thicker than my Dell Lattitude (slim) laptop. I'm not sure why Logitech decided it had to be so bulky other than for "protection"

    The darn keyboard will fall off (detach) from the iPad very easily / quickly - I have to be mindful when picking up the iPad when the keyboard is open to support both the ipad and the keyboard - picking it up by the iPad alone will almost always result in a dropped keyboard.

    If you're looking for a "slim" setup - this isn't it. If you need the items in the "Likes" (above) it should work for you.

    Great concept with box store, house brand quality/execution.

    I had high hopes for this combination. It seemed "great on paper," as other reviewers have mentioned, but the clunky execution and cheap materials simply don't reflect the price.

    I would love a case/back with an adjustable kick-stand as well as a proper backlit keyboard cover, but I just can't put an exceptional piece of hardware like the 10.5-inch iPad Pro into a case-keyboard-cover combo that feels like something one would expect from a box store house brand, not Logitech.

    I had planned to use this with a leather Smart Cover, swapping the keyboard out when I didn't need it and adding some refinement to the setup, but the back case is so chunky I can't see that scenario working.

    Unless you absolutely need the utility, I can't recommend this. If you're like me the material and build quality will only serve to remind you of the price paid and hopes dashed.

    Until someone develops a proper cover/case/keyboard (backlit) combo, I'll stick with the 10.5-inch edition of the $18 third-party TPU case I bought for the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

    Love the keyboard, hate the case

    I really wanted to love this product but I just can't. The keyboard is great. I really like the back-lighting and the key travel. I do not like the fact that it can't be tucked behind the iPad when you are just holding it.

    The back-plate / case is another story. The kickstand works fine but the case is too big and too bulky. The worse part about it is the plastic "fingers" that hold the iPad in and come up significantly over the surface of the iPad. It almost feels like it's sitting down in something. This makes it very uncomfortable to use without the keyboard.

    If you are just going to sit your iPad on your desk and type it probably great. If you want it to be light, portable, and comfortable then I can't recommend this case. I will be returning mine today.

    Beyond poor design

    How a product this poorly designed could make it from the design board, through testing and into production is truly beyond me. There is absolutely nothing positive to say about the product. I am returning mine.

    I wouldn't call it slim.

    I've used a Logitech keyboard with my iPad Air2 for a couple of years and I really like it.

    With this good experience, it seemed it would be a smart move to invest in the Logitech for my new iPad Pro 10.5.

    Big mistake, while the keyboard itself is fine, the case is really thick and makes the nice slim iPad as thick as a laptop. Since my goal is to have a slim computer for traveling, the Logitech (not so) Slim Combo is going back to the Apple Store tomorrow and I'll make do with the Apple Smart Keyboard until something better comes along.

    Bulky, but highly functional

    Just upgraded my Air 2 with Type + setup. I was tempted by the detachable keyboard and more versatile setup. Never loved Apple's smart keyboard or the price. Not sure if I love the materials on this. The hard plastic seems a little cheap. I've only had it for a day so I can't speak to durability. Love the backlit keyboard for nighttime blogging.

    Cheap Material / Snaps Apart

    I really wanted to like this case for the new iPad Pro 10.5. Key points as to my low rating are below. Maybe if this was $60 I would be more inclined to accept the flaws, but for $130, I would like something that at least compares to the quality and aesthetic I expect for Apple recommended products. Overall, very disappointing. I returned this item.

    - Terrible hand-feel. The material feels very cheap.
    - Adds significant bulk to the slim iPad Pro 10.5
    - While they market it as a plus, I did not like that the keyboard detaches when I am using the device in portrait mode. If I am reading and engrossed in a story, I could see how I could easily forget to pick the keyboard back up.
    - The one that I purchased appeared to already be scratched and like someone spilled oil on it.

    Bulky

    I purchased this today and immediately returned it after two hours of use. I use my iPad Pro for presentations and for work in this particular keypad Where is way more pokey and heavy and having the smart keyboard and silicone cover. The keyboard does not flip towards the back of the iPad like it does with the smart keyboard. To me it did not have a very sleek and elegant look. The way the case sticks out around the edges of the iPad takes away from the sleek look of the iPad 10.5. The only advantage I see with this keypad is that it has the home button function on top. Even the Apple Pencil holder, made me think that it exposed the Apple Pencil too much for breakage. What I ended up doing was purchasing the smart keypad and the leather sleeve. Way more attractive plus protection from scratches, and yes the smart keypad does fit in to the sleeve

    Slim is a matter of opinion

    This case is big. Really big. And heavy. If you're used to using Logitech's keyboard case for the 9.7 ipad pro, get ready for something that feels much bigger and heavier. It kinda sorta defeats the purpose of an ipad if it's in a case with a keyboard that makes it bigger -- or at the very least heavier -- than a Macbook Air. Make no mistake: the keyboard works flawlessly and there is merit to the multi-piece configuration, but this is by no means slim.

    Cleaver design - awful materials

    Just purchased this in anticipation of receiving the 10.5 iPad Pro next week. I love that it has an adjustable kickstand, backlit keys, and easily detaches from the keyboard. What I find sorely disappointing is the hard plastic they used. In this day of soft-touch plastics, I'm surprised they chose this hard, cheap-feeling material. I currently use a 9.7 pro with Apple's silicon case and their keyboard. I love caring that thing around - feels so good in the hand! The function of Logitech's slim-combo is a winner, so I'll be keeping it. I just wish they'd made a different choice in the material.
