    Nice Keyboard/case except for the hinge.

    I would have given this ZAGG a 5-star except for the weak hinge. I have had 3 previous Zagg keyboards--2 folio and 1 slim book and now have tried this one. Within a year the hinge breaks or the holes break out which holds the iPad. Sometimes when I open this Rugged Book the iPad part of the case comes out of the hinge. It is definitely something Zagg should look into. Other than that I would recommend it fully!! Battery life is great and I love the feel of the keys! Backlit feature is nice as well but the hinge needs attention. Don't know if it is too stiff or just not heavy enough to handle the opening and closing of the unit in which it is supposed to do. iPad will go to sleep when the unit is closed. I would recommend it as long as the buyer is willing to replace it within a year.

    I received the IPad mini 2 as a gift and I wanted to love it, but I found the size was too large to hold and type at the same time, and it just felt awkward to use. So it ended up in a drawer, and I went back to using my Samsung Galaxy when I needed a portable device. Then I happened upon the Zagg Rugged Book Keyboard, what a life changer, it turned my clumsy tablet into a multi-functional device for typing, surfing the net, videos, and for following a recipe in the kitchen. As for the hinge, no problem yet ,but I do recommend opening it slow and gentle. Now if they could make one that looks more feminine- it would be perfect.

    I bought the Zagg iPad mini case to replace a Brookstone case for which the keyboard had failed. The Zagg case was one of the few with a built-in keyboard. While it is probably overkill for home use, I'm not concerned about protection of my iPad with this case. As in other reviews, I do have some concerns about the hinge. Be sure to grab the case and iPad firmly and open the case slowly. I sometimes use a stylus, and it would be nice if the Zagg case had a place to store it.

    This is my second one. I purchased one and could never get the keyboard to BT with my Ipad Mini 3. I charged the keyboard for hours. I would power it up and the light would go green and then red. From that point, the keyboard would not work. I returned it and they shipped me another. I am having the same problems. I have been on some forums to see if I am missing some type of direction. I am giving it another week before I take this back to Best Buy and fins another one.

    This was the only case they had with a keyboard. I tried it for a short time but it was too bulky to fit in my purse plus it kept snapping apart. I returned it because t was too expensive. Still looking for one to fit my old mini IPad.

    I've had this iPad case for a little more than three months and so far it has worked great. Charge the keyboard up when I received it and haven't charged it since. Haven't had any problems with the hinge as suggested in other reviews, so far so good. A little expensive but worth it.

    I love the case. It is well built and fits perfect. However, the keyboard has already malfunctioned. The alpha keys still work but, the function keys (delete, space, enter....) just stopped working. Very disappointed

    these keyboards work GREAT, but if you use it allot, you may not be happy with the hinge, they seem to last around a year before replacing, I would suggest the warranty for a couple dollars more!
