      Very poor quality for the price

I'm not alone there are hundreds of people experiencing the same fault on Apples support communities site. £169 for something that can barely last a year is very poor indeed.

      Expensive but worth it for some

While I didn't want a case per say because I wanted to remove it when I was say using the iPad as a tablet. The Logitech keyboard for the Pro I had heard some issues with scratching the screen, so avoided that and splashed out on this keyboard. It does take some time to get used to typing but hey, was able to code up a website with no trouble. Pros: It feels like quality materials, looks beautiful and doesn't add as much weight. Cons: It is clunky, because it folds back in on itself so the keys don't touch or damage the screen there is a flap that may annoy.

      Good laptop alternative

I must say I am impressed with the overall des I purchased this keyboard as I'm about to start university and it was an alternative to a new lightweight laptop. I must say I am impressed with the overall design, whist the iPad is stood there is no question of it's stability if you're tapping the screen. The keys have a nice feel when you're typing, just like a laptop and they're covered in a fabric that seems pretty hard wearing. The fact that it's connected via the Smart Connector means it saves time that you would use connecting to Bluetooth keyboards. The one extra this item might benefit from is a backlight however the light from the iPad screen keeps it lit pretty well. Considering everything I would be more than happy to recommend this keyboard to any of my friends or family.

      Good while it lasted.. two failed now, C'mon apple...do the right thing

      These keyboards are very good when they work albeit with an eye-watering price tag that could buy you a shiny new laptop elsewhere... the problem starts when yo These keyboards are very good when they work albeit with an eye-watering price tag that could buy you a shiny new laptop elsewhere... the problem starts when you use them everyday... two consecutive keyboard failures now and radio silence when suggesting that for £170 they should cope with daily use and they just can't .... the suggestion that my failures are unusual is a little patronising given that number of them failing.... Apple, I have more than one of just about everything product your sell and love you but please please come clean on this, fix this problem proactively, and look after your presently loyal clientele! I'm off to buy my third one as the second one consecutively failed just out of warranty.. iPad 2yrs and a few months old....three smart keyboards so far.... and counting!

      Fine and reliable keyboard

      A little expensive but I've found it worth it. Used for work almost every day for nearly two years. Starting to show a little wear but no where near as much as A little expensive but I've found it worth it. Used for work almost every day for nearly two years. Starting to show a little wear but no where near as much as I expected by now. Mine is first generation US layout but no worries. Easy to type with and adds little to no weight to the iPad. I've been well happy with it.
