Pros The aluminum looks great, and the iPad fits snugly and perfectly into the keyboard feels sturdy and the iPad never feels like it will slip out. Was easy to set up and got it working in 30 seconds. Keyboard is the right size for my hands (I am a woman with
Cons The plastic part that the iPad leans against when the keyboard is open (the easel mechanism) feels very flimsy compared to the rest of the product. Would like to have seen this made out of a heavier material.
No back protection, but then again, that's no
Summary Would buy this again - looks great, feels great, works well - just need to be careful with that easel mechanism. And make sure you read the instructions on how to put it in and take it out.
Pros Case is very streamlined and elegant, adds minimal bulk & weight to ipad 2. The action on the keyboard feels really nice, I enjoy typing on it even though it is a small netbook sized keyboard
Cons It is difficult to unseat the ipad from the case. I have to use a fair amount of force to remove the ipad 2 from it's ZAGGmate keyboard case, enough that it hurts my fingertips.
Sometimes the ipad seems to loose the connection with the keyboard even
Summary The Zaggmate logitech keyboard is the most physically appealing, slimmest, most portable keyboard option for the ipad, and its flaws are such that I still think it is the best option out there, but I do not think it is perfect.
Pros Works great, as described. I sell iPads, and they had these for the 1st Gen under the original Zagg name.
Cons I have big mitts for hands. I know I will have trouble with any netbook type keyboard. But what got me about this one is that I find part of my palms/wrist wresting on the aluminum edge. I know how SS feels. The finished, but could use a little more round
Summary Great for what it does. Cant Man handle it. Not your average netbook keyboard. Not for the big guys. Kick stand feels like I'm going to snap it off someday. Ruff around the physical edges. But its sexy and well made for how it is now.
Pros Very protective. Easy sync. Great keyboard. Great design.
Cons It is so cheaply constructed that, unless you baby it, it will need to be replaced several times a year. This really defeats the purpose of having a rugged LOOKING case.
Summary I have had to return three of these now. The first just stopped working. It was replaced under warranty by a second whose flimsy charge components came out of the device still attached to the charge cord within the first week. The third did the same thing. I am willing to accept one bad product as an honest mistake. The second really turns me off of a product. The THIRD makes me come to sites like this and warn potential customers that despite the high price, the quality on this case is too low for it be be taken seriously.
Pros Nice keyboard layout. Solid construction. Logical design.
Cons Doesn't hold a charge. Logitech refuses to support product.
Summary I bought this case and fell in love. Best keyboard layout I've used so far. However shortly after purchasing it, I noticed that it wasn't getting anywhere near the usage time promised in the official specs. I contacted logitech which said the unit was defective. After about a month of back-and-forth with Logitech, they agreed to replace the faulty product. However, when I sent a copy of my receipt, their customer support rep said that I had purchased the case from a "non official" vendor and therefore my warranty was invalid. Buy.com has been around forever. How was I supposed to know whether they were "official" or not? I will not buy another Logitech product and I suggest you don't either because there's no telling if they'll actually stand behind it if it is defective.
