    Decent but overpriced

    I've had my trusty belkin folio for 4 years but it was showing its age and when I replaced my ipad air for a new ipad I found out the old folio would not link with the new ipad. Looking for a new folio, belkins was seriously back ordered. I tried a few and settled on the logitech folio. The Good: Exterior includes a rough fabric which helps ensure a firm grasp of the folio. Includes a loop to attach ipad pencils. Keyboard is spacious and well-laid out with numerous extra special keys - I really like typing with this. Keyboard activates quickly once the ipad contacts the magnet - much better than my old one. I like the concept of replacing batteries occasionally (as opposed to carrying yet another cable to recharge my keyboard). The Bad: unlit keys - but then I rarely type in the dark. Case is entirely plastic - I miss the aluminum of my belkin. There is only one angle (think it is 58 degrees) that this can work with the keyboard. My belkin had 3 angles though any pressure on the top of the ipad tended to collapse the folio - not so with this logitech as it is solidly emplaced. The keyboard always comes on when I prop the ipad up - I would prefer to activate the keyboard with a button (there is one to turn it on/off but default is on) to save battery life. Finally the price - should be $50. I got it "on sale" for $84 but given I paid $75 for an aluminum case that lasted 4 years (and still works)...time will tell how long this plastic case works. Other than price and a couple of nits, however, it works and works well.

    Wish I would have spent my money on something else

    I bought my iPad and Slim Folio less then a year ago and have been very satisfied with my iPad but have not felt the same for my Slim Folio. I choose to get the Slim Folio because the Best Buy salesmen said it was the only keyboard compatible with my iPad. I use my iPad and keyboard for school and everyday use but is very difficult to write essays when my keyboard is in need of new batteries all the time. I have to change the batteries every other month($50 so far spent on batteries) and now the plastic part protecting the magnets on the top ridge above the screen has fallen off. I am not a fan of this keyboard and will recommend my fellow students and peers to not purchase this product.

    This Folio makes a nice companion to my new iPad Gen 6. It fits in snugly and is a great protective case for it. It is configured to the iPad via Bluetooth. Great for desktop work. However, if you intend to use the iPad in bed, the case is awkward unless you are sitting up perfectly (and who of us does that?). For this, you might consider removing the iPad from the Folio. Consider getting a second charging cable/charger so that you can keep one near bedside and one in another section of the house. It has an earphone jack (haven't tried that yet) and a Lightning connector for interface and charging. There is no manual for this, but one is not really needed. I did notice that when I went on to the YouTube site, there was no volume control. I'm not certain if that is a fault of the iPad technology or if I need to download something first. I have only had this for a short while. All in all, a worthwhile investment though you may have to get used to the smaller keyboard. That goes with the territory.

    Great keyboard, good case

    I’ve only had this case for a few days but I’m really liking the keyboard. Of course it’s narrower than a standard keyboard because it’s the length of the iPad, but the keys feel exactly as a laptop keyboard does. The functionality provided within the space is wonderful, as there are even media control keys such as volume. There is a key to bring up different keyboards (for different languages or emojis) and a button to bring up the on-screen keyboard. The case itself is good, but nothing spectacular. It seems to be magnetic and shuts securely, so it won’t open without effort. And when I shut the cover the iPad automatically goes to sleep, which is a BIG plus. But I suspect that the case wouldn’t provide much protection. I’m a bit clumsy and won’t use anything less than total protection phone cases, so I worry that this case may not protect the iPad should it fall from a few feet or anything of the sort (but I haven’t tested that theory and hopefully never will!) But the case is just a shell. As long as you keep your device in a safe place and transport it with care, it should do its job, though!

    OK Keyboard - Just Not What I Ended Up Wanting

    I've seen reviews of this keyboard where keys stop working. I also know others who have this keyboard with keys that popped off. This isn't my experience. I throw the iPad with the keyboard attached in a backpack and bring it to music jobs. I've got to pop out the iPad to place it on a stand since the keyboard cannot be disconnected from the case and would get in the way when using this for sheet music display. Logitech makes a newer model where the keyboard can disconnect (popularized by the MS Surface). This is more of what I want and imagine the keyboard will hold up just as well. Which, for me, has been fine. Constantly moving this device and removing/replacing the iPad - the keyboard still is fine and everything works. Knock on wood. Keep in mind my rating and assessment is in the light that it doesn't do what I want. If I always needed the keyboard attached - it would be rated higher.

    Seems pretty solid, does make the iPad somewhat large to carry around. Works well on the lap for me, I can prop the iPad up on the keyboard and easily comfortable sit for a long time, works very well with the terminal ssh client I use (Blink) and is comfortable enough for typing for. Quite a while once you get used to it, I will say this is a good tool and I use it when I want a keyboard and want to sit somewhere that comfortable with my iPad for a while where I’m typing a lot, I did purchase a different apple like cover that tri-folds and is very slim that I use most of them time, it is easy to switch out of htat cover and into this case however so I am glad I have this keyboard for when I want a physical keyboard but I don’t feel burdened by its size when I don’t want a keyboard. Glad I have this and at the special price when bundled with the iPad it is worth every penny. If you think you will have extended typing periods on your iPad get this when you get the iPad, I am glad I did.

    I like this little keyboard cover. It allows me to use the ipad instead of having to carry around a laptop. Already had a logitech keyboard for an apple desk computer, so I knew logitech makes good keyboards for Apple products. Tried another cover without a keyboard for a few days that allows multiple angles for the screen and that one may come in handy for watching youtube or movies, but for everyday work and especially traveling, I really missed this one and am happy to have it back on the ipad. It’s nicely made, functions great, key touch is very good, has long battery life (4 years didn’t know this till after purchase) sturdy, protective, I like the feel and grip. It has a little holder built in for the logitech Crayon, which I also have and the holder works well. Overall it is a great cover and keyboard. Love it.

    Instructions are pathetic. You have to go to you tube in order to get information on how this product works. I bought the extended warranty this time because they claim 4 months of battery life. You will never even get one. I’ll take it back each month and get another when they die. Logitech ipad keyboard products are great when new, but don’t last. Their customer service is a joke, you’ll talk to “Fred” or “Bobby” from India who will totally butcher your description of the problem and ask if you tried taking it out of the box. I have about 3 of these in a drawer with dead unchargable batteries that they will not warranty without jumping through a bunch of stupid hoops. I wish there was a better product out there other than the over priced Apple keyboard

    For those searching for a functional yet sleek keyboard for iPad, the Logitech Slim Folio is the way to go, Using precise keyboard macros, a sleek but protective canvas like cover, and iOS functional buttons in the top row, this keyboard is an easy steal. While the keyboard may be close to $100 dollars, its 4 year battery life with replaceable watch batteries makes up for it. This keyboard also rocks a nice holster for your Apple pencil or their affiliate product, the Logitech Crayon. The keyboard has a great 110 degree stand and a wonderful connection feature using magets to connect to the iPad using low energy blietooth4.1 technology. All of these feautres makes this keyboard great for students, teachers, and artists. Those with exxtensive carerrs, please use a MacBook this keyboard shouldn't be used to replace your entire computer as should the iPad.

    The best folio in my opinion!

    I always liked having a folio case as a cover for my iPad to use the attached keyboard when necessary. I started out with a really cute and neat (color purple) folio, but the hinge just wasn’t strong enough and kept breaking after a couple months. I finally replaced that type with a Nomad folio but that was a dust collector. Next replacement was a Rugged messenger which didn’t synch up with my shut off button. I finally saw the Logitech slim folio on sale at Best Buy. Got it right away and LOVE it! All openings synced up with the volume and shutoff buttons. Light weight, sturdy and no dust collection. Also love the additional pen holder. GO LOGITECH.! Keep up the good workmanship of your products. I give this 10 **********.

    Certain keys only work intermittently

    I've had this keyboard less than a month and several keys, including E, L, P, and a few others often don't work. Restarting the iPad, turning blue tooth on and off, and other "fixes" don't work. Besides, who wants to have to reset constantly? I use my iPad mostly for work and it's incredibly frustrating when I can't take notes during a meeting because of this keyboard flaw. Also, it's very difficult to get the iPad out of the case for those that like to remove it occasionally. Finally, Logitech customer service is a pain to deal with. No surprise here, but it would be nice if they could respond more quickly.

    I had an original for my older ipad that you recharge. Still works great and my husband uses all the time, probably 6 years old at least. I got a newer ipad and had to get this keyboard (don't get me wrong I love it - when it works). It does not recharge but is supposed to last 4 years. After less about 18 months it died. Good news Best Buy replaced it immediately. Bad news I got this one in March, 2019 it is dead (today is 06/13/19)! Going back to Best Buy to exchange again only in as much that I love the functionality but sure wish they would go back to the rechargeable one. Plus I still want to get the use out of my $100.00.

    Bought this keyboard at a 50% bundle discount to go along with an iPad 9.7". Case fits well. Pairing was straight-forward (easy). Be aware that you can't replace the battery on this unit. If you're trying to decide whether you'll be using the iPad + keyboard to replace a laptop, keep in mind the the keyboard is fit to match the dimensions of the iPad - in other words, don't fool yourself and believe you're going to be typing out long documents (if that's one of your main uses of the device) and expect comfort. The keyboard is excellent for short periods of time. Get yourself a full-size bluetooth keyboard to compliment the portability of this Logitech.

    I bought this Late December, and it broke end of January. I had purchased the Geek Squad insurance on top of the Manufacturer insurance, when I went it to get a new I was shook by Nick’s unprofessionalism. He explained in a rude manner that I would get a new case, only when I payed for the insurance again (even though I had purchased geek squad insurance). That didn’t make sense to me so I decided to go through Logitech. Take away points- 1- Don’t buy insurance for it because it won’t cover. 2- I wouldn’t recommend this keyboard as it broke after only one month of use.

    I initially came into your store because my Logitech keyboard had a bulge in the upper left hand corner and I wanted to find out what was causing it. I was told that the battery had reached the end of its life and that it could have exploded (!!) Thus I purchased another Logitech keyboard and turned in the old keyboard to your recycling department. I later contacted Logitech about the issue and they said to send them a picture of the keyboard (too late) and that they would reimburse me for the cost of the keyboard. Why didn’t your sales rep suggest this solution to me??????????? I’m now out almost $100!!

    Disclaimer here - I'm a big fan of Logitech keyboards and mice, using them at both home and work. This keyboard has lived up to their usual quality and ease of use. The cover nicely protects the iPad and has a pleasing canvas like texture that is soft to the touch on the outside. The keyboard itself is nicely spaced and attaches nearly instantly when it snaps into location (it's still Bluetooth, but the speed with which it works is amazing). And the battery seems to last and last. The cover is also comfortable to hold in portrait mode folded back (in what Logitech calls the view mode). A great purchase if you want a keyboard case for your iPad.

    The keyboard is GREAT. Comfortable to type on, good spacing, and the keys have good travel. The shortcuts up top are really useful, and the pairing process is super nice. Now the design portion. Garbage. When you want to use your iPad without the keyboard, the whole package is about TWO WHOLE INCHES thick. TWO WHOLE INCHES! The thing is so uncomfortable to hold. If it’s so thick, you’d think that they would make the keyboard easy to remove, right? WRONG. The keyboard grips onto the iPad so tightly that when I removed it, I thought I had broken the case at first. If they would have made the keyboard easy to remove, I would have enjoyed it more.

    Excellent product design! This case has magnets that allow the iPad to snap into position at an angle without needing something to support it from the bottom like most cases — unique and super efficient. Also, the keyboard isn’t chargeable, but package claims battery will last about four years. This can be a positive or negative, but if the claim holds up, then it’s definitely a positive because not having to worry about charging it has been really convenient. Keyboard layout itself is very comfortable for typing. When closed the case looks sleek and thin. Again, super impressed with the product design! Highly recommend.

    Ordered an iPad during the Black Friday sale along with the Logitech Slim Folio. It was something I was going to get for the iPad to use as a simple laptop alternative anyway and a special bundle price made it a no-brainer. The keyboard pairs quickly and typing is comfortable considering the compact size. As expected, it does add some bulk and weight to the iPad but the case seems sturdy and should provide good protection. Glad it has a holder for the Apple Pencil which I'll eventually be getting.

    Sturdy case with a very useful design. Works as a carrying case, holder when using the iPad alone, or in the keyboard set up mode. Set up was easy and connection to the iPad is a one time thing, just enter the code and hit ENTER (instructions fail to mention ENTER). The set-up documentation is a small piece of paper with pictures. I opted for the website version for the set up. The battery is supposed to last 4 years which is a plus. Buy this with an iPad purchase and save 50%.
