    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.
