    This case has a lot of noteworthy positives with one major--and in my case fatal--flaw. The actual "protective" part of the case is slightly better than the average single-layer plastic case in that it has a slight lip, meaning if you drop your iPad face-down the screen will not take as direct an impact. It's slightly thicker than the Zagg case I previously tried, too. What the overall case lacks versus the Zagg is protective power "at rest." The keyboard part of the case only attaches to the main part via a magnet, and the magnetic connect is to the IPAD and not the case itself, meaning it simply will not stay closed securely. The keyboard itself is the best part of the entire ensemble. Even for a gaming keyboard aficionado like myself, the full-sized Logitech keyboard was pretty solid for portable typing needs. I recognize this is the major reason one would look at this case in the first place and that my own desire for hardcore protection is not the norm. But the keyboard has a "feature" that ends up being a huge drawback: the Smart Connector power supply. It sounds nice not to have to charge the keyboard separately as it runs off the iPad. But this keyboard eats battery like crazy even at rest. I put the iPad in my backpack at 100% charge at 9 A.M. the first morning I had it. By the time I got to court at 10:30 my iPad battery was at 55%. That's nearly half the battery drained in an hour and a half of doing nothing, when the Pro by itself will handle a full day of HD video watching, gaming, or other intensive use on a single charge. By the time my work day was over at 2:30 the iPad was down to 12%. Not only is this pitiful in terms of efficiency, it significantly decreases the utility of the case AND the device. If for some reason you can keep your iPad separate from the keyboard all day except during times of use, AND you have zero concerns about drop damage, this may be a case for you. I simply cannot recommend it.

    Better than Smart Keyboard

    I really wanted to like Apple Smart Keyboard. However, the clacking of the keys when I typed really bugged me. I could just imagine what it would sound like if I was typing notes at a meeting when everything else was silent! The Logitech keyboard has many positives: quiet keys, protection for the back as well as IPAD screen, Apple Pencil storage, backlit keys, magnetic on/off with closure, multilevel tilt options. As for negatives,.the lock key is very close to ‘delete’ key, so it’s easy to turn off the screen. However, it comes back on with touch of any key! so I’ve since changed my opinion of it as a positive. Kind of a nice way to save battery when you are in between notes. I wish it was a bit lighter, but the all round protection it provides for the IPAD is worth the little extra weight. The 1/2” ‘gusset’ that connects the keyboard with the magnet on the IPAD make the connection floppy. However, it also makes it easy to simply remove the keyboard and hold the IPAD only using the back cover. The cost includes items I would have had to purchase additionally with the Smart Keyboard, i.e. a cover for the back and pencil holder. So, for me, the Logitech Slim Keyboard Case is a keeper and will complement my IPAD PRO 10.5” functionality, since I am not a fan of typing on the screen keyboard.

    Great idea, horrible build quality

    I purchased this 16 days ago, mostly because I liked the protection it offered versus the Apple keyboard and because it has the extra row of function keys that seem very useful. I'm doing some consulting, so I started taking my iPad Pro 10.5" instead of my laptop to take notes and create documentation in MS Word. The keyboard and iPad combo worked perfectly for the first week, and I was excited about the potential it had for my lifestyle and work requirements. I did not have an opportunity to use the keyboard portion for most of the second week, but when I did need it on day 15 of ownership (which happens to be the end of the return window) I found it to be completely unusable! The under-workings of the keyboard now appear to be bowed up in the middle, specifically under the space bar. It is so bad that the center of the space bar has no range of movement, only the left and right edges do. When I opened up Word to try typing, I either got continuous random spaces, or more often got ONLY spaces as it was stuck producing the space character until I removed the keyboard from the connector. It also killed my battery in about 6 hours despite no iPad use today, presumable because it was continuously sending the iPad a space character and not allowing it to sleep. I have initiated a warranty request, but the cheap build quality has me worried that even if they replace it for me something similar will happen again in the future. If this had happened before the 15 day return window, I would have returned it and purchased the Apple Keyboard. To leave this on a positive note, the adjustable leg and the case that covers the iPad are solid, offer excellent viewing options, and are extremely functional.

    Nice Keyboard Case for the 10.5

    I almost avoided this case because of all the negative reviews, but decided to take a chance because of BB's return policy. I found the keyboard to be outstanding to type on (using it now), nice backlit keys, and an overall nice feel. I have no problem using this case on my lap unlike others. The smart connection is flawless and although somewhat wobbly doesn't create any issues for me. The ability to remove the iPad from the keyboard is another nice feature. One reviewer complained about the lip around the iPad not being flush. Personally I find this a plus because it protects the screen better. I previously tried the Zagg keyboard case and really wanted to like it but kept getting double keystrokes and returned it for the Logitech. I’m very satisfied with this case. Although I wouldn’t call it a “slim case” I don’t find the thickness as a negative because of the quality of the keyboard in general. I gave it 4 stars because I feel that the connection platform should have been a more solid foundation. It’s not really a flaw, just could have been a little more stable. All in all, the great quality one would expect from Logitech.

    Better options than the Apple version

    I'm not sure how people are having this "disconnect" and "pop off" of the ipad while they're typing. Unless they have this on some really soft surface, in which case that may happen with any magnetically connected keyboard. On a desk, it's solid. Just like a laptop. Much like the MIcrosoft Surface, this isn't lappable though, and for the exact same reasons. But I wasn't looking for something to make my iPad into a laptop - just something to make my iPad pro more usable in situations where I may be traveling and don't feel like dragging my laptop and accessories with. And for that, this nails it pretty well. Keyboard is surprisingly responsive and comfortable to use. I am a very fast touch typist so that's critical to me. I like all the quick feature keys on top, which was one of the biggest reasons I picked this over the Apple version. Not having to deal with keeping a bluetooth keyboard charged was another factor I liked about this. Nothing is worse than needing the keyboard and realizing it wasn't charged recently. Unlike the Apple keyboard, this has a case for full all around protection from scratches, but this isn't a Pelican case, so don't drop it... It adds bulk, but this isn't my daily case so I don't care. I have a slim leather case and cover that I use when i don't need a keyboard and want portability, but this thicker case will still be less than I deal with lugging around my laptop. I have to return mine though, bought new but apparently Best Buy thinks someone's returned items that aren't even resealed should count as "new" but other than Best Buy failing, I don't really have any complaint about this keyboard.

    The BEST!

    This is my 3rd or 4th keyboard for an iPad. Definitely worth the money if you want to type a lot. I use my iPad Pro 10.5" more now that I have this! LOVE the magnetic connection. LOVE the NO batteries, no need to charge! LOVE the light up keyboard. LOVE the keys. I can type pretty fast on this. I was thinking if you had big hand and fingers- maybe you wouldn't love it as much- go for the bigger one? I LOVE that you just pull it apart. I LOVE the stand/hinge- I use it on the couch all the time and I can adjust it to be in a perfect position. It is pretty much everything I have ever wanted in an iPad keyboard. -I would prefer the iPad pencil holder to be a rubber clip in type- like a different cover I've seen. But I like all the other things better. -Some shortcut buttons would be nice- open safari, mail, messaging. But that's okay. I never thought I'd want the bigger iPad Pro- but this keyboard almost makes me wish I had that- (If they made this keyboard for that size).

    Nice attempt, failed execution

    I purchased this keyboard case as soon as it was available for the Ipad pro 10.5". I like the concept that logitech was going for, but they produced a very flawed product. First off, there is nothing slim about this case...it's bulky and heavy. It easily adds about 4 to 5 times the size of the ipad without a case. They designed it with a rounded back to the part that hold the ipad....so it wobbles if you are just using that part of the case and set it down. It has a huge lip to protect the screen, which is both good and bad. The keyboard types very nice, but becomes unattached very easily. I loved the logitech create case. The slim combo doesn't even come close to being as nice of a case. There are starting to be other options out there that are much better. They may not use the smart connector, but they are far superior cases.

    Not great

    I commend Logitech for being one of the few companies to support the smart connector standard from Apple. Being able to connect the keyboard directly to the ipad without charging and cable is exceptional. However, the rest of this case leaves a lot to be desired. Using "slim" is very misleading for this case. Although no heavy, it is very bulky and feels like cheap plastic. The kickstand, which was the standout feature for me on this case, feels cheap and fragile. The pencil loop, which awkwardly hangs out on the top, feels like a total afterthought. The keyboard portion connects easily enough but does not have enough strength to keep the keyboard connected. I would have much rather seen Logitech make a 10.5 inch compatible version of the create case that was made for the 9.7 inch/12.9 inch ipad pro models. This "slim" combo makes the sleek ipad pro bulky, utilitarian and cheap looking.
