"Nice Product but be aware of two things..."2.5 starson by gregorysreid
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.
