    My first impressions with the Logitech keyboard was the sturdiness and attractiveness of the case. This is an excellent accessory to the iPad Air 2 for the following reasons: - The iPad Air 2 fits snuggly inside the case and is held in two corners. I initially didn't think it would as the brackets are very small, but so far it is doing a great job and has not loosened - It was easy to pair the bluetooth keyboard to the iPad Air 2, just like you would pair any bluetooth device - When closed, the iPad Air 2 is automatically locked and turned off I am overall pleased with this Logitech Type+ Protective case after being a privileged user of multiple brands of Bluetooth keyboards for my iPad Air 2 I got for Christmas. The product arrived in a nicely packaged box. Gave it a few hours to get it fully charged. Here're my findings: - The case is light weight yet made of durable material that does not show finger prints - The magnetic grooves that hold the iPad Air 2 securely upright when typing is the strongest that I have come across; the iPad does not wobble when resting on my lap - The viewing angle was appropriate, wished it had a couple of notches to offer 2-3 viewing angles - Nice added functions on the keyboard like the Home key, voice activation key, volume controls and video controls - The key clicks are quiet and don't feel like cheap plastic unlike previous keyboards that I have had - The layout of the keys and size of the keys make it very comfortable when typing. The "F" and "J" key bumps for key placement is perfect. - When closed, the case looks slick and elegant. The magnet that keeps it close does a great job. - I immediately took to typing on it; no learning curve or the need to get adjusted to it unlike a previous keyboard that I used Minor areas of improvement: - I really struggled with finding any faults with it. The on/off button on the iPad is not easily accessible, but then I rarely need to since there is a key for that on the keyboard. - A backlit keyboard would be a nice added touch After going through a few weeks of testing several Bluetooth keyboards brands for the iPad Air 2, this is definitely one of my favorites.

    Best iPad Keyboard for the Air 2

    I tried the Belkin and the Zagg keyboards. The Zagg one I tried has lots of plastic, and did not have a tablet mode, other than the bulky model with detachable clam shell. The Belkin is a mess. The magnet is not strong enough to keep the tablet at the 135 degree angle under moderate movement (picking up with one hand to move from table to couch, for example). The bluetooth kept dropping, sometimes to the point where you had to forget and rediscover the device. Also, something about the screen position has you accidentally tapping the bottom of the screen in mid-type, sending your cursor to a completely different part of the email//note/message. The Logitech keyboard is everything the Belkin is not: reliable Bluetooth, solid keyboard, smart about when to turn the keyboard on/off depending on keyboard vs. tablet mode, strong magnet for holding screen in position, etc. One note; the shortcut key that is the globe-looking icon is not a shortcut to the web browser. Instead it is to switch to Emoji or other languages optioned in iPad settings' languages. There is no owners manual available in the box or online, but a call to Logitech customer support was helpful in getting me straight on the shortcut key.

    Thin, Light, and Great Performance

    I've had my fair share of bluetooth keyboards for iPads, and when I was able to outfit my iPad Air 2 with this keyboard I instantly fell in love. * Placing the iPad into the keyboard was one of the easiest tasks when compared to sliding in older iPads into other cases. * The case itself feels solid, so when I place this in my bag as I go to work I'm confident that this will provide a good level of protection while in my bad. * All the shortcut keys are incredible useful and a delight to have available * The keys themselves when typing react well and are spaced out as good as can be for this type of keyboard. I'm a computer programmer and have had issues adapting at times to these, but I can actually type pretty quickly on them! * Battery life has been incredible. At one point I thought it would never run out, it really lasted a LONG time * As it was a problem with other keyboards I've used, flipping this keyboard around to use the iPad in pure tablet mode worked well. I didn't accidentally hit keys and it folds over nicely. This combined with the thinness and sturdiness make it nice to keep on while relaxing on the couch or when I'm on the train commuting * Bluetooth connected without issues and I haven't had any issues reconnecting from sleep mode Again, overall this is one of the most positive experiences I've had yet with a product in this class. I definitely recommend it to anyone trying to find a keyboard that doesn't compromise the beauty in the iPad Air 2's light weight and thinness.

    Not a good support for iPad

    Posted
    Techgirl215

    I bought this wanting a good keyboard for my iPad and a thin case so that it doesn't add much weight to the iPad Air. The keyboard isn't bad, the chiclet keys are pretty comfortable, I only had to get used to the letter A key. It's wider, substituting the cap lock, though the function is there. You just have to activate it with the function or command key, I forget which. But my biggest gripe isn't the keyboard at all! It's the support that holds the iPad Air. It's held by two thin rounded plastic pieces that only hold the two right corners of the pad. The design flaw is the upper plastic support piece which has a tab so that you can press the wake/lock button on the iPad. The piece is thin already adding the tab weakens the support. After two to three weeks of use it started to break apart, and my iPad fell out. I was not happy with this. I called the manufacturer and they sent me a new one. I wasn't surprised when the same thing happened AGAIN. I gave up, having regretted spending the 99.00 on this case. I do not recommend this product if you want to protect your 499.00 iPad (as we all now that's the base price). Do not buy this case. I'm only giving it two stars because the keyboard is decent at best.

    Comfortable to type but no backlight

    This is a very good keyboard - it is easy to type on I love the magnetic hold . It is very solid. Some of the features like toggling in between using the keyboard and the ipad keyboard is nice. This keyboard would be perfect if it had a backlight. I like to surf the web at night and I couldn't see a think using the keyboard. Also it would be nice if the keyboard allowed for you to rotate it or be able to prop up the Ipad to view a movie. I am waiting for a few more keyboards to come out but I think I might take it back just because I like the backlight. It doesn't scratch my ipad - which is wonderful but it really needs a backlight and way to prop up the ipad in portrait view. It is nice that it shuts off the ipad when you close it and wakes up the keyboard when you attach the ipad and deactivates the keyboard when you detach. I like the lock key which allows you to lock you ipad while it is open. just trying to figure out how to scroll when I am typing so I can keep my hands on the keyboard. It is nice I am just looking for something with a backlight.

    Great Magnets that hold the keyboard in place

    I tried the Belkin keyboard for the ipad air 2 and hated it. It was bulky, heavy and the magnets and case slid around so it wasn't very sturdy. This case seems almost perfect. The keyboard turns on and off by its self. The keys feel nice but I wish they were a little bit softer texture. The keys are a hard plastic so that is a little cold to the touch. Also i wish the keyboard had a back light display but for 100 dollars you can't go wrong. Other than those two issues I would say this keyboard is amazing. Its half the weight of the other keyboard cases out right now and it feels really nice and sturdy to hold. It's only been a day but I can say hands down this is better than the current belkin case. My first day with this case and I am writing this review using it. I'll let you know if I notice anything else , but as of now I would highly recommend it. I give it 4.5 stars. 5 stars if they give a backlight and soften the texture of the keys. Keep it up Logitec.

    This case was bought as a way for me to be able to maximize my productivity levels on my iPad since there was only a smart connector keyboard back then for the iPad Pro. I read the mized reviews but decided to give it a shot anyway. The case by no means subpar. it looked, felt, and even performed like a top model keyboard case. The problem, however, came with protection. This case does not cover the enclose the iPad as i prefer when purchasing a case. It only protects the back and front of the iPad and even with that, the keyboard (the keys) directly touch the iPad screen so its necessary to make sure you have screen protector in order to prevent an potential scratches. The body of the iPad is left exposed to the world for damage to have its way. The best way to think of this product is as a portfolio and not an actual case. I ended up returning within two weeks due to me being scared of my iPad becoming damaged. Great idea but poor execution. Would not recommend if you care about your iPad's appearance as much as I do but if you sent mind, then I would definitely recommend this case otherwise. Like I said its great functionality wise but poor in terms of protection and micro scratches

    I originally purchased the LG 49 LF5500. Excellent television and a great value for the price but I couldn't resist upgrading to the 50 LF6100. The main reason was the refresh rate. The 49 LF5500 has a 60hZ rate while the LF6100 has a 120hZ rate. The 49 inch television is very sleek and looks great and gives an excellent picture for the price point but the availability of the Smart TV feature plus the doubled refresh rate I'm truly happy that I upgraded. BestBuy was excellent with their no-hassle return policy since it was only 2 1/2 days later that I made the return. Of course they will pull the return out of the box & turn it on and that is expected. You really can't go wrong. I have been a plasma person since the first one came out in 2003 but since they are really no longer being support/produced by major manufacturers it was time to upgrade. The plasma would become a bit warm and I'm sure the electric bill can now take a breather with the LG 50LF6100. It provides the realist hues but not to the point where it's "too real" to where it almost looks fake & bright. Again, the Smart Tv function is so much easier than having to turn on another device or two for a specific service. Excellent Tv at a great price point.

    I bought an iPad Air 2 and was debating whether I should get a keyboard or not.. was planning on same as my old ipad and iphone, use the screen to type, but at the same time I was researching on keyboards that are not bulky, smooth to type, user friendly. I looked on amazon and other websites and read the reviews carefully. I saw this (on black) but I didn't see enough buyers thus not enough reviews so I went to bestbuy and boy oh boy the moment I saw this violet keyboard I couldn't put it back to the shelf. it is lightweight, color is very pretty and all the people who have seen it love it, very handy, provides protection to my ipad, bluetooth/wireless, typing is super smooth keypads are very soft, the magnet that makes/supports the ipad is so far working great (it's been a month). this would've been perfect if it has backlight, but doesn't matter I can use the screen when it's dark. I'm telling everyone, I was never jn love with my iPad Air 2 until I got this logitech keyboard type+. LOVEEEE! this is not going back to bestbuy!:)

    Poor restraint design

    The keyboard is functional and generally protects the iPad. The magnetic strip that activates the keyboard is a nice touch. I had no problem pairing with the keyboard. However the iPad is only held in place at two corners where it snaps in. As others have noted this is a significant weakness. I have also had an issue when I remove the iPad from the 2 corner mount. I'm not sure if the iPad flexes but it appears the cause a problem with the SIM card connection. Every time I am required to reactivate my iPad. I have had to restart the the iPad to connect back to the cellular network. I'm sure the repeated removal will only weaken the attachment points. It is also cumbersome to use while in the case unless you are using the keyboard. It does not fold back well to use in the tablet mode. It also adds a good deal of weight which is disappointing since the Air 2 is so light weight and handles so nicely without case. I will be returning the keyboard / case.

    Very Best Keyboard & Value for My iPad Air 2!

    Posted
    StrefoDude

    This keyboard exceeded my expectations. It attaches perfectly to my iPad Air 2 and, together with its Apple keyboard button layout, it is clearly far and away superior than keyboards I have purchased from Zagg which would duplicate keystrokes, break. The Type+ turns my iPad Air 2 into a more effective and powerful production tool, my version of a Macbook Air. I like the way I can easily put it onto my iPad or remove it without fear of breaking the keyboard. It looks good, too: very stylish and clean. Logitech just became my go to company for iPad keyboards and accessories. And, it really is a great value for the price. I am genuinely satisfied even now as I use my Type+ to write this review. Cons? No illuminated keyboard and the position of my iPad in relation to the keyboard is fixed: both small caveats, indeed. I'm having a more complete and satisfying user experience with my iPad Air 2 thanks to the Type+. I recommend it to all for consideration in purchasing a serious accompaniment to your iPad. Can't say enough about it!

    Amazingly Perfect Case

    Where do I start? I received an iPad Air 2 for Christmas prior to traveling to the east coast. This replaces an iPad 4th Ed. Due in part to use of an app, I decided I wanted a keyboard case. I had an expensive, heavy, white ZAG case that got dirty in a second so I was reluctant in buying another case for the Air 2. Why have a new, thin, lightweight iPad when the case is only going to defeat such traits? This case is lightweight. It holds the iPad securely. When opening the case for use, the magnet attaches to the iPad and immediately turns on the Bluetooth for use. The keyboard "feels" good & is very responsive. Backlit keys are not a necessity. While a black case was unavailable, I was skeptical in purchasing a violet case. I choose to have my iPad and iPhone cases compliment each other :-) As it turned out, I found a beautiful floral Speck case for the phone with the same violet color. Now I'm set. I don't often write reviews but after trying many cases and keyboards, I thought I'd let the crowds know, this one is indeed a gem.

    I decided to purchase this case after I got my new iPad Air 2. I previously had a normal iPad and used an Anker keyboard case for it. The Anker is similar in design and function to this one, but I immediately noticed a few major differences. This keyboard is much smoother to type on. The keys push effortlessly and are not loud when typing. That being said, the other keyboard routinely had key covers popping off - one (on the shift key, grr) broke permanently. Let me mention, it's not a bunch of kids playing with my iPad either. This was with light, adult use. This keyboard feels MUCH sturdier. It connects quickly and doesn't require me to reset the iPad, which I had to do occasionally with the other keyboard. I like that it has the dual view option for when I am on the couch and don't necessarily need a keyboard. So far, thumbs up. The only criticism I have is all the extra space on the side of the tablet. I feel like they could have made it smaller... which is one of the main draws of the iPad Air...

    Not Bad, Could be Better

    For the last few years, I had used Zagg keyboards but I decided to go with a different brand this time around. One thing I liked about the new keyboard is that I could see my iPad Air instead of just the screen and bezels. Also, the typing is pretty smooth overall - haven’t had any hiccups or stuck keys. It’s a softer typing experience that doesn’t feel laborious. Not many negatives on this one but if you buy it, take note that the keyboard does not illuminate. That didn’t matter to me because I’ve really never used that option in the past anyway. If you have the Air 2, it’s not a bad accessory at all. It’s compact, easy to travel with, and is said to carry its charge for three months. I’m not there yet but I’m watching!

    I had a keyboard cover with my previous iPad, and found it to be very helpful (like writing this review). This new cover is lighter than my old one. I like the feel of the keys, with good firmness for feedback and soft key click responses. The cover has really only one position when open, held into position with a strong magnet. Of course, it folds over so that you can use the iPad in its more native state. For me, this has not been a problem at all. The bluetooth connection occurs quickly, and the automatic iPad shutoff when the cover is closed is welcome. The battery has lasted a long time on one charge. Advertised is up to three months, and I'm working on one+ months so far. If you do a lot of typing, this keyboard is a welcome aid to working with your iPad. One thing that wasn't obvious is that once the bluetooth connection is made, the indicator light goes out. A bit disconcerting until I read the instructions online.

    This Logitech for iPad Air 2 is my third keyboard in around 3 months. The Logitech was my original one when I bought my iPad a few years ago. It eventually died and I replaced kit with a Zagg backlit heavy duty one which failed and was way too heavy to be practical. It advertised being able to change the color of the backlighting. That part never worked. Best Buy took it back and I went with an order-out Targus, which I ended up hating. Backlighting failed on that one too. Best Buy took that one back as well. I decided to go back to the Logitech and it works well, except the groove that the iPad rests in is too shallow and the device will fold when you don't expect it to, especially when changing volume. That is admittedly annoying. But the keyboard is easy to use (w/o backlighting) and the keys are spaced much better than the previous two I had.

    The keyboard is a great investment to be used with the iPad air investment to be used with the iPad air too. D keyboard and closes the iPad at the top and allows for the bottom to be magnetically attached to the keyboar and allows for the bottom to be magnetically attached to the keyboard. Easily pairs with the iPad and is very comfortable on the lap or on a table and is comfortable for the hands to type. The drawback is the rubber backing has bent at a different angle than originally when it was out of the box but otherwise it has stayed strong and the case is a nice grippy feel so that it doesn't slide out of the hands. The case wraps around the iPad providing 360 degree protection.

    I saw the positive reviews here and didn't check the reviews on Amazon. I purchased this case with a new IPad Air2 and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. I was going to write a review but then thought Id wait a few months. Well its been less than 3 months and the case doesnt work anymore. It's not the keyboard but the plastic corners will not hold the IPad secure. The IPad will slip slightly, even when in an upright position. It's slips down to where the on/off button is being hit by the lower secure tabs. So now it basically turns my IPad off any time I try to type on the keyboard. Then when I try to just use it as a case, the whole ipad will skip out because the secure tabs aren't holding it in place anymore. Ive contacted Logitech since its under warranty so well see how good the company is about dealing with this.

    Logitech Keyboard Case iPad Air2

    I wanted a case with a keyboard so the Logitech Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 was a perfect solution. The keyboard works great and the flexibility of being able to use the iPad with the keyboard or folded like a tablet is fantastic.The keyboard holds it's charge great, I have had the case since Christmas (2 months ago) and have not had to charge it yet. Before I purchased the case I read reviews stating the keyboard falls out easily, I have not found this to be completely relevant. It will fall out but only if you are not carrying the case correctly, or in my case my three year old is bringing the iPad to me and not carrying it safely. The only reason I did not give this case 5 stars is that the iPad has the potential to fall out if not treated properly, making the case not kid friendly. Over all it is the perfect case for me. *Note: This is the Wife's case, so she wrote the review.*

    This was exactly what I was looking for! I wanted a smart case because I don't always remember to put my iPad to sleep when I'm done and that can make a big difference in battery life. My second requirement was a keyboard so it would be easy to type and the keyboard in this case is great! Easy to install and they keys are soft- sometimes I think the keys on this type of item are too stiff and you have to hit them just right- not so with this one! The keyboard is also easily shut off if I don't want to use it. Last, I love that the case is all one piece and folds in half! I looked at others that split apart and that would probably result in me losing the keyboard piece at some point. Fairly light weight and easy to use. I've had it for almost three months with tons of use and no visible signs of wear, so far it's perfect for what I needed!
