    Pro: solid construction, backlit keys, super adjustable hinge, extra function keys Con: HEAVY, clumsy to insert/remove iPad, battery life surprisingly short, need to be manually recharged I started with Apple’s folio. Lightweight, convenient, but no backlight. I then went to the Brydge but the weight and clumsiness of inserting/removing the iPad were deal breakers for me. Ultimately I paid the price for Apple’s “Magic” keyboard. (It IS magic - it made $350 disappear from my wallet!) Unless price is the overwhelming metric, the Magic keyboard is the best choice. No muss, no fuss, It just works.

    I love this tablet, but I could not find a case that fit my needs. I needed a case with a keyboard that was detachable, slim and had multiple viewing angles. This fits all my needs. The keyboard feels nice and types nicely. It does not say it, but It also comes with a back cover. This keyboard heavily reminds me of a laptop. I think the main other option right now is the Logitech - Slim Folio Pro. I originally had that one and hated it; if you are considering between the two, I would 100% recommend getting this one!

    If you want/need to use your iPad that more closely resembles a MacBook then this is the keyboard for you. Know before you go! It does add weight and thickness to your iPad. While this shouldn’t be a surprise, people seem to rant negatively about it. There seems to have been a lot of chatter about the hinges on this keyboard and how it attaches. In case you haven’t figured it out, you slide the iPad into two rubber coated slots which hold the iPad in place. The iPad then sits snuggly and isn’t going to move unless you give it some forceful tugs to remove it. The hinge is very solid and I would say maybe even a bit too solid. At least with my unit, you aren’t opening this with one hand. Compared to my MacBook Pro which can lift the lid with one finger, this requires both hands. Not a con in my book but some might not like it. And finally the keyboard, I will say that I did get a dud at first that had a very annoying squeaking space bar which also seemed to not register all my inputs. I took it back and got another one and have no experienced that issue. The keyboard is close to my 2019 MacBook Pro but they are raised slightly more (Brydge). It’s not that noticeable though and you’ll be off and running before you know it. I have not experienced any lag or connections issues and the keyboard fires up immediately.

    Like the keyboard for the ipad pro 12.9. Wish it could fold all the way back back to use ipad but have to take the ipad off and flip it.

    Prefer This One Over Apple’s

    I purchased a Brydge keyboard for my original 2015 12.9-inch iPad Pro after using Apple’s keyboard. I have to say I really do prefer this one over the Apple keyboards. The typing on it feels very natural and it matches my Space Gray iPad perfectly. It’s easy to put it the iPad into the Brydge iPad holders. The only knock I have against this device is that it does not hold the iPad very strongly. Once side or another has slipped out once or twice with this new one and my new iPad. The device is incredibly over priced. But, overall I would certainly recommend it.

    The keyboard itself connects and works well but the mechanical parts not so hot. The Ipad never really fit well in the two hinges and the rubber guards began to fall off immediately. Closing the keyboard was always a fight with stiff hinges so I pretty much left it open. Still, with minimal use, one hinge snapped off just a little over a year from getting this.

    The Brydge keyboard is the best way to get your iPad to feel like a traditional clam-shell laptop. I love typing on it, but taking the iPad out to use in tablet mode and put back is a little bit cumbersome. Overall, the device made the iPad heavy to the point that it no longer was the uber-portable device that Apple loves to espouse.

    I like the backlit keyboard. You can’t scroll around on the pad so I don’t know why there’s such a large space with nothing in it. It’s heavy and expensive. I probably should of just spent a few more dollars and bought the Apple brand. I’m j

    I originally bought the Zagg keyboard folio and it was too clunky. While this keyboard is only slightly less weight, it doesn’t feel that way. It transitions nicely with the iPad for aesthetics close to a MacBook Pro, all while conveniently and seamlessly being able to detach the iPad at a moments notice. Good job brydge. It also comes with a bonus cover for the back of the iPad

    As a keyboard no problem, but not a fan of the weight or the way the tablet fits in the holder. It seems like a lot of pressure on the screen and even if its fine I honestly wasn't comfortable with it.

    I followed the directions to put my brand new iPad in. The rubber on the clasps came off completely and the iPad will not stay in place.
