    Brilliant keyboard, bulky protection, yet still very portable

    • Written by Nabiel J from Huddersfield

    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.

    Not perfect but good all round protection

    It was a toss up between this and the apple keyboard, after playing with the apple keyboard and deciding that it was out of the question due to having no back protection i opted for the Logitech.

    Pros:
    Hard shell case
    Backlit keyboard
    Responsive
    Kickstand
    A lot cheaper

    Cons
    Adds bulk to the iPad Pro
    Slightly more weight


    I wasn't to sure how long the Apple keyboard would last, especially if it was being put in a bag or such each day with it being made from a softer material type, the corners might start to go. Overall I'm happy i chose this as it should last longer and give more protection. The keyboard detaches and snaps back on as per the Apple type.
