    Best Case, but Has a Flaw (Live With it Though)

    Posted
    Theboardrider

    I had this same style on my iPad original model and it held up for over 2 years. Was a fantastic case, I recommended to everyone and was just super happy with the purchase. When I got an iPad Air, I was stoked to learn that there was a model that fit my new iPad. And I'm still stoked, but the design has a flaw in the part that goes around the volume up/down buttons. On the new iPad case, it's a much slimmer design (which is great, only complaint on old one is it was heavy and thick), and it functions exactly as my old one so I was pumped. But then shortly after I got it, it broke around the volume. I returned it, and lo and behold Logitech had already remodeled the design in that regard! So I thought all was fixed....but the new design wasn't quite strong enough either, and after a few months it broke as well. They'd have to make it thicker to not have an issue i think. Overall a good case though. I temporarily replaced it with a fancy Zagg case, with the backlighting and fancy stuff. To try it out.... TOTAL JUNK! It was $140 (compared to $79.99), and it wouldn't stay connected, and after a few months the hinges on the screen mount started to wear out. For the money, get the Logitech, just be careful with that volume area. Hopefully they fix it on future models, because the overall model and class of case is superb. ***It's designed so no spills get in the keys either...can clean the whole case with a sponge! One nice feature....

    Love it, all except one small hitch

    I really do love this keyboard case, so easy to use. Typing with this keyboard is very comfortable. It is not too heavy and other than the little piece of plastic that is suppose to hold the ipad into the case, breaking off and leaving your ipad to fall out, it is a great cover/keyboard. The first one I had, lasted less than two months, but Logitech support was great about it, they had a new one out to me immediately. The second one broke right after the warranty ran out. I love this keyboard so much, I just glue dotted my ipad into the case. After two years of that, it is just finely given up and it is starting to completely fall apart. I hate to say that I wouldn't recommend it, because I love it. I don't know how you can keep it from breaking, I didn't take my ipad out of the case. It has been a litle over three years, I haven't looked at the new ones, so I don't know if they have changed the plastic piece to be sturdier or not. I don't think I would recommend it for a teenager, at all. I'd recommend to a friend, only after I told them about my problem. After two years of tape and glue dots, this time I am going to try another brand, If I hate it, I can always come back to Logitech. :)

    Fatal design flaw in the case, wonderful keyboard

    Posted
    Kasey

    My parents purchased this case from Best Buy two years ago. I had this case for two years. The keyboard on this case is fantastic. I love how it works, types, functions, everything about it. The case however is problematic. First off, due to the keyboard being against the iPad when closed, my screen has small thin scratches going across. The next issue is the mechanism that holds the iPad in the case. Like nearly every reviewer on Amazon, that part of the case broke. It’s the part of the case on the left side that is just below the lock button. This broke as it did for almost every one else. It broke just a few days ago after two years of using it. I believe that that part is too short in length, creating a fragile part. Once it breaks the iPad will no longer stay in the case. This is a problematic design flaw that needs to be addressed and corrected. In the end I had to purchase a different case. In summary, the keyboard is wonderful, the case could have been fantastic but it’s not due to a fatal design flaw

    All right. I think this is my 3rd review of a Logitech keyboard for my iPad Air. The first one lasted me a couple of years, but finally the plastic frame that holds the iPad in place broke. It worked well while it lasted. Bought a new one just last summer. The frame started cracking in exactly the same place, and eventually gave way. Lucky for me, I had the product replacement plan. This last one *seems* sturdier than previous models, but I can't really tell. The general design is the same, and I expect product failure again well before the iPad itself dies. These are not well-designed. You more rent them than own them. I'd buy another brand, but I don't like their configuration. Also - wife has iPad Mini, and we've gone through the same thing with it and Logitech keyboards. Her 2nd one is giving out as we speak. They are both used regularly but gently, and there is no reason they should break so easily.

    Functional but not sturdy

    Have had this for just over two years. In that time I've used it at least once per month but definitely not on a daily basis. I haven't had to charge the battery very often, which is good. However, I noticed recently that the iPad kept slipping out of the holder. I looked closer and found that the plastic had broken off on just one of the three pieces that hold it in place, and that was enough to prevent it from retaining the iPad when in the open position (propped up against the keyboard). Just a slight bump will cause the iPad to slip out of the remaining clips and fall out (has happened a couple of times while writing this review). I am fortunate that this didn't happen when the iPad was over a solid surface, otherwise I could have easily ended up with a cracked screen. In writing this review I have found that many others have experienced this exact same failure. The keyboard function has worked well, but it would be helpful if it were backlit.

    I bought this keyboard case to replace a very similar one that I have had for quite a while. It got so that it would not hold my iPad tightly and it kept on slipping down and out of the clips. This new one with similar clips (or friction holders) was the same arrangement, but I figured if it lasted as long as the old one it would be OK. Well, the very first time I inserted my iPad into that new keyboard case it slipped out and almost fell to the ground. Close call! I returned the case immediately and just used some adhesive tape to tighten the hold at the corner clips on the old case and that works OK. The new keyboard/case is not worth the money and could cost you much more if your iPad would slip out and fall.

    Best Mobile Keyboard I've Ever Used

    I'm typing this review on this product. The keys have a slight curvature to them which "hugs" your fingers. THe spacing is also impressive for a mobile keyboard and is almost identical to my laptop keyboard. There is almost no adjustment necessary to my typing and I am typing at the same speed I would on my laptop. For those of you who have used mobile keyboards in the past you can appreciate how amazing that is. The case itself its limited to only a single viewing angle although folding it back flat works well and still allows you to use the iPad. The design also makes it very easy to remove the iPad and since the grips are rubber rather than plastic I'm not afraid I will break it when I remove the iPad. Overall weight is average but for full protection is rather light. If you're shopping for a keyboard case this is easily the best I've used. Great kudos to the engineer at Logitech that designed this.

    I have had several Zagg keyboard covers and really liked them but always found that the keyboards were not 100% responsive. My last Zagg keyboard died and this was all that BB had in-store to fit, so I paid the extra and bought it, even though I wasn't too keen on the flip up stand. After using this keyboard cover for a couple of days, I LOVE IT! The keyboard is 100% accurate and very responsive to touch typing, the stand is strong and the angel perfect. I am really impressed with this cover and have to say, I would not go back to Zagg. It connects via bluetooth to the iPad without any delay, every single time I open it or turn it on; whereas the Zagg I repeatedly had to go into settings to connect. I like the screen shot button, so easy. The only thing I would like it to have, is back-lit keys. A brilliant piece of kit.

    Bought this last August 2014 but didn't start using it until January 2015. Now you have to understand that this case/ipad is always left on the table or counter and never tossed in a bag and taken anywhere. After 5 weeks of simply using, the bracket that holds the ipad broke off. Since there is a lack of brackets, there is nothing to hold the ipad in place. I purchased so long ago, i couldn't return it to the store so i had to call customer service. Luckily they came through for me. Logitech will be replacing the entire case by sometime next week. I just wonder if i ever do take this case and ipad out with me how will it actually hold up. After spending so much money on a case i don't think i would do it again. 5 weeks, with little use and the tab breaks off. As for the keyboard. i haven't even used it yet. I've gotten so used to the ipad keyboard i haven't found the need.

    I've purchased two of these recently. One is for my husband and one for my college graduate son. Magnets hold the cover shut and hold the iPad Air in place while typing. Very Good Magnets! This keyboard works seamlessly with the iPad Air. As the cover opens and the iPad Air is positioned for typing, the bluetooth keyboard instantly awakens and pairs with the iPad Air with no hesitation. The keyboard itself feels great while typing and this particular model has six rows of keys. The first row has the space bar, apple keys, dedicated cursor keys. The second row includes the cut, copy, and paste symbols on the letters x, c, v for those of us who can never remember our keyboard shortcuts. The remaining QWERTY keys are typical. The fifth and sixth rows are dedicated number keys (Hooray!) and music/video keys such as skip, volume up and down, pause, etc.. I love this keyboard cover!!

    This is the second Logitech keyboard cover I have bought for my iPad Air. The plastic clip broke on the first one at the upper left corner where the iPad clips into the case, and it wouldn't stay in the case after that. This one, however, has obviously stronger plastic clips - you can see that they are much thicker and sturdier. I guess that was a design flaw of the previous version. Overall, I am very impressed with the slim and sleek look of the case. I like the fact that it protects both the front and back of the iPad. The functionality of the keyboard is also impressive, as the keys are well-spaced and feel natural when typing. It's the best keyboard cover for the iPad I have found yet.

    I had first purchased a different case because the associate helping me recommended the wrong one for my iPad. I came back later and exchanged for this one. It’s lighter and I love that it magnitizes to the iPad to hold it in place. Looking at where the iPad is held in the two corners I didn’t think it would hold it securely but I haven’t had any problems. Also I’ve had the keyboard for almost a month and haven’t needed to charge it once yet. I also love the top row of option keys that let you take a screen shot, talk to siri, pause, fast forward/rewind, volume, home button, recent apps, and turn the screen on/off.

    sleek keyboard folio

    The Type+ for Ipad Air is a well designed keyboard folio that includes several usefull shortcut keys in addtion to the functionality of the Apple keyboard design. I found the key placement and travel to be natural for touch typing. The strong magnet holds the IPad firmly in the typing position making it easy to type in my lap. The keybad cover folds behind the Ipad and is light enough to hold as reader. I would have appreciated the option to purchase with an attractive design or color, but the black ballistic nylon provides a sleek, professional appearance. The Ipad is easily removed from the folio, but the Type+ strikes such an excellent compromise in function vs. weight that I am not tempted to do so. Goodbye laptop!

    great keyboard case with one flaw

    This is a really great case. The keyboard has a nice feel to it. I like that it pairs as soon as you put it in position and disconnects when you remove it. The one flaw is that the top left hinge is very weak. It is very easy to break it off when trying to remove the iPad from the case. Customer service is very responsive and will replace the case typically if this happens. To avoid the issue, when attempting to remove the iPad you need to carefully slide it out. Do not try and pry it out or it will break. This sounds ominous, but most people aren't going to be taking it in and out of this case very often, and with care its a non-issue. If you can get past this, the case itself is otherwise great.

    Having owned several iPads over the years, I quickly discovered that you can be more productive with an external keyboard than without one. Having said that, I have had 4 Logitech iPad keyboard and folios now and I'd say this probably the 2nd best one I have purchased. The one I had before this one had softer keys and was somewhat water/crumb proof. This new folio/keyboard is louder and not water/crumb proof, but it suffices. On the plus side, however, this folio/keyboard does include iPad iOS function buttons that my last one did not, so that makes this item better than before too. Either way, you can't go wrong with a functional keyboard, so get one.

    So I bought my wife the new iPad the 2017 rebranded iPad not the iPad Pro just the new 2017 rebranded iPad I looked high and low for a case with a keyboard for her as she requested one after getting the iPad I cannot find it anywhere just to find out that the old iPad Air keyboard case fits the new iPad . I hope this helps as it took me several days to figure this all out . She has had the case for several months now and I have only seen her charge it twice works great never has had a problem protects the iPad pretty well too . The keys feel good to touch and it is very durable and easy to type with .

    Needed a keyboard so I could take better advantage of my iPad Air. When in Best Buy, the clerk directed me to two different keyboards. One was $30 cheaper, and I didn't want to spend a lot, so I was leaning towards it. But another clerk barged in and recommended this $99 Logitech Type+ keyboard. I hemmed, hawed and said I'd think about it. Walked around the store for a bit, and my gut told me you get what you pay for. I went back, picked up the Logitech Type+, and never looked back. I LOVE IT! I would have preferred receiving some kind of manual with it, rather than searching at length online for instructions, but, it all ended well. I absolutely love it!

    Very good keyboard for A9 iPad

    Fits my iPad, the new model with the A9 chip that came out in April 2017, happy to say. The two upper corner clips that keep the iPad in place work flawlessly. The bluetooth connection works so well that I never have to think about it. And it powers itself on and data-connects whenever the iPad is set onto the magnetic strip along the Botton edge where it naturally rests. Have to hand it to Logitech for their nicely thought out design and functioning. Rating 4 Stars not 5 because there is no way to disable the Cap-Locks key. No app for this either. Would give this KB 4.9 Stars if I had the option. Great unit!

    What original keyboard should have been

    My review for this is essentially the same as what I wrote for my iPad mini. My first Logitech keyboard rendered itself useless after the plastic guides broke. It's now a small functional Bluetooth keyboard that is essentially useless. The guides on this one appear more sturdy, and it seems to work nicely. The keyboard layout is better, but the keys are concave as opposed to raised, which I don't like as much. I resent having to purchase this, as I paid at least $80 for my first one. At least this one was more affordable. I got the Geek Squad protection just in case. My recommendation is *only* because I had no better options.

    Great keyboard case overall. I always felt my iPad was well-secured and wouldn't pop out, as it would in the last keyboard case I tried. Keyboard is smooth to use and can go months between having to charge it, which was surprising considering I use it most of the day at work. There are two downsides to this case, though. First, it only sits at one angle. Second, the top corners that the iPad snaps into start to crack and chip off after several months of use. I spoke with customer service and was told they're aware that it happens. Again, overall great keyboard case; I'd order one again.
