Pros o Very nice keyboard
o Nice 'key' feel
o Sleek deisgn
o ipad is solidly held when inserted into keyboard
Cons o The underside of the keyboard scuffs very easily
o The magnetic clasp that holds the keyboard to the iPad when both are closed is terribly weak.
Summary I'll keep it short and sweet.
It is a great keyboard and I am using it now. However, after two days (yes, only two days...) of use, the aluminum-like facing on the underside of the keyboard is already scuffed. It's faced nothing worse than a tray table on a jet and my briefcase.
The most annoying part of the product is that the magetic clasp that holds the keyboard on as a cover is far, far weaker than the regular iPad covers. It is so weak that when carrying the two closed against each other in a hand that the iPad and the keyboard cover will separate. It happeens, as well, when putting the two into a briefcase or a seat pocket on the airline. The result is that the movement of the two against each other turns on the iPad and kills battery life. Also, you have to reposition it, etc. Painful and not well executed.
I have fixed this by using a binder clip to keep the iPad and the keyboard from separating.
Would I buy it again? Probably not.
Pros The best looking Logitech's ipad keyboard out of 4 designs, looks more pro than other tablets keyboards
Cons i can't find, even a back cover would make it bulky
Summary i may buy an ipad to have one, CNet review is fair
Cons -COSTS 100$
-No Usb attachment
-Doesn't have a battery to charge the ipad
-Doesn't have have an SD card slot
Summary Honestly CNET, you complain about the Asus Transformer keyboard being "unnecessary", "too small", and "too expensive"...And yet you give this plastic keyboard a editors choice award?!? It costs only 50 dollars less...and doesn't have ANY features...
Just one question: Is it Logitech, or Apple that pads your pocket?
Pros I really didn't see any except for it being easy to use...
Cons Doesn't protect the iPad. Why whould I want a case if it doesn't protect my investment?
Summary Wow CNET, I go to you for all of my tech news and reviews but this has got to be the biggest piece of crap I have ever read. I don't even see any pro's mentioned about this keyboard. You do mention that it has to be used on a flat surface or it will tip over, that to me sounds like a con. At least the Asus Transformers' keyboard adds battery life to the tablet, this thing brings nothing to the table except for being a case/keyboard combo. As much as I like my iPhone 4 I am not even remotely in love with Apple as much as you people are. Whoopdy doooo!! How about instead of sharing pointless articles with your readers you share some of that money that Apple gives you to mention their products in any way shape or form.
