      Don't listen to the haters....This is a fantastic "keyboard"

      Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, the Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, there may be some functionality glitches, but again, so what. This Smart "KEYBOARD" for iPad Pro rocks. Apple only promised us a keyboard, and that's what this is. The whiners probably shake their birthday cards for money before they read them, so sad. This is by far the best peripheral keyboard I've ever used in terms of feel and accuracy. Oh, and the feel/look of the materials/design is far from cheap, as mentioned in some other reviews. They nailed it, AGAIN!! Thanks Apple. Bottom Line - Drop the coin and don't look back. This keyboard will transform your iPad Pro into a monster of mayhem.(in a good way). Cheers!!

      After 35 years of computing, my favorite keyboard of all time.

I make virtually no typing errors on it, and it's proximity to the display makes the combination of a keyboard and the touch screen really work. With my other iPads, I used several aftermarket keyboards and typically abandoned them in a short time. I love this one, and hope that the shortcomings will be resolved soon in software.

      Best keyboard experience

      The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboard The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboards, I was a bit sceptical in using a keyboard at first but so far have not been disappointed. The quality is excellent, the keyboard works and integrates well with the iPadPro. Some people might want a trackpad - but given it is an iPad, you really do not need any. I recommend to get an Apple Pencil as well.

      weak magnets, stiff keys

      So many have said the same thing below. I loved the idea of it as an effortless connecting device with a sturdy cover, but the keyboard just falls off my iPad P So many have said the same thing below. I loved the idea of it as an effortless connecting device with a sturdy cover, but the keyboard just falls off my iPad Pro the second I lift it up to close the cover. It slides off when I'm carrying it, it won't stay up if I put it on my lap (you have to use the keyboard with a table), and it doesn't close tightly enough to prevent the device from turning on. The keyboard would be quiet if I didn't have to push the keys so hard (and so accurately). A colleague commented on it in a department meeting--"Are you mad at your email, or something?"--and someone else commented that they had the same problem, too. Also, I've never been keen on the fact that this thing lacks a screen typing angle, even just for reading or gaming or whatever. Since the keyboard is so flimsy, I can't use it to prop up the screen: either I hold the thing flat, or it falls off the cover. Once these issues are resolved--and they are relatively easy to fix--it will be fantastic. I think that other brands, like Logitech, were unreliable enough on my previous generation iPad that I won't replace the Apple keyboard, but it is a huge disappointment because I trust Apple to design better products. Would I buy it again? Yup, because other brands just don't connect as well, and I haven't had the software issue that others have had. If I do get those issues, though, I'll probably bail.
