Customer Reviews

fairly well pleased. So far so good. It shipped quickly, in fact arriving a day early. Very well packaged.I bought this one because I've had good experience with Logitech products before, and this folio/keyboard meets expectations. For being so thin, it has a pretty sturdy feel to it. The magnets do hold it shut very well, and the one that holds the ipad in the propped up position is impressively strong, too. I do question the ability to put your ipad mini to sleep just by shutting the cover. I tried it, and I can still see a blue glow around the edges. You will want to play it safe and use the sleep button. Also, the sleep/wake button is completely covered and requires a definite effort to engage. You have to press just a bit harder than you think. I was surprised that the side buttons on the ipad are not covered when the folio is closed. This isn't a deal breaker, but surprising considering how thoroughly the sleep button is covered, and it might leave your device vulnerable to being accidentally muted, or the volume adjusted, if you just have it tossed into a tote bag or something.The keys are of a surprisingly decent size. Of course they are a whole lot closer together than the average typist is used to, a given considering the keyboard can be no wider than the device, and that requires that you give it some real attention, double checking the 'home' position of your fingers and practicing with the half sized side keys. But I really think that you can get used to the positioning in time. And they feel like real keys, which I consider a strong point.The surprisingly low price makes up for the few drawbacks. Maybe if I were completely dependent on my mini for all my typing/computing, I might want something a bit more; but for how I use it, just emails and browsing, I think this will work well. 4Great case, essentially perfect except for a few keyboard layout choices that make it awkward for experienced touch-typists. I was really on the fence as to whether to award this product 4 or 5 stars. I eventually settled on 4 stars because while it is a really high-quality case and keyboard and works very well, making my iPad Mini 2 a much better device overall with it than without it; there are a few seemingly minor design choices related to the keyboard layout that could have been easily changed to make it much better when used for two-handed touch typing.The case protects the iPad thoroughly when closed and the magnets hold the case closed securely. I wouldn't want to drop it on concrete from a second-floor window but I feel good having it in my briefcase, on the passenger seat of the car, or in my hand as I walk around my home or office. When open the iPad is exposed, in the same way that the screen of a laptop is exposed when a laptop is open. In "laptop mode" the magnets hold everything together well enough that the assembly can be carried from the case's top edge or supported underneath. I'm not worried about the lack of coverage when opened, but be aware that if you are accident-prone or are otherwise looking for total coverage for your iPad, this case might not be your best choice.(By the way, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio will fit both the original iPad Mini as well as the iPad Mini 2/iPad Mini Retina. Both are held very securely once snapped in yet are easy to remove (READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!!) when desired. So far, after the first day when I was putting it in and taking it out frequently as I was deciding if I liked the case, I haven't felt the need to remove it from the case a single time.)The power button which covers/protects the iPad's power button is a little hard to push and can be awkward to get your finger onto but this should be an issue only if you take a lot of screenshots. You should almost never have to put the iPad to sleep using the power button since just closing up the case puts the iPad to sleep with its magnets, just as do Apple's own covers and cases.This keyboard makes me feel as if I have an ultraportable laptop with me. It's great for notes at meetings, writing at the dining-room table, or tapping away on email and Twitter while slouched on the couch with the case and iPad propped between my abdomen and thighs.Due to changes in iOS 7, the keyboard shortcut to invoke the "Slideshow" doesn't work. However, although the instruction booklet said that the keyboard shortcut to invoke Spotlight search also wouldn't work in iOS 7, it does work for my iPad Mini 2 currently running iOS 7.0.4. This is nothing to me since I don't think I have ever nor will ever want to run a "Slideshow" and if I did I'd do it from within an app. In any case, it's not Logitech's fault that Apple changed things in iOS that the command sent from the keyboard accessory can no longer invoke that specific function.I have been using my iPad as my bedside clock radio, and the "laptop mode" positions it perfectly for this use. The iPad will wobble a little if you tap on the screen, but it's surprisingly stable and there's no chance of it falling over or tipping even if you tap the screen firmly. I like how the keyboard can be folded under the iPad so that it can be held in one hand in portrait or landscape mode. It's also easy to open the folio and hold it like a book with the keyboard on the left side and the iPad on the right in portrait mode and I use it like this often when I'm on a bus or train.I've only had the case for a few weeks but haven't needed to charge it yet. It arrived charged and supposedly will last 3 months between charges. A mini-USB cable is provided for charging but not a power supply. The mini-USB cable can be plugged into any 5watt or better power supply (such as those provided by Apple with their various i-devices) and should be able to charge from any computer's powered USB port. The keyboard can be used while charging but this would be awkward. Charging shouldn't take more than a few hours so just do it overnight whenever the red "charge me now" light comes on.edit 2014-03-17: More than three months and only tonight has the red light begun to blink. That's a darn long time to hold a charge and I've used the keypad every day and never turned it off with the switch on the side. When I recharge it tonight it will be the first time I've had to do so since I bought it.Pairing with my iPad was very quick and required no special effort on my part. The keyboard puts itself to sleep after it's not been used for a while but wakes up very quickly, reconnecting with the iPad within seconds. About the only time I've even noticed the keyboard waking up and reconnecting is the first time I tap it in the morning or if I've otherwise left it alone for several hours. I've never turned it off but I suppose if you're really concerned about battery life you could turn it off with the side switch when you know you won't be using the keyboard functions for a while.The keyboard itself is, for the most part, a brilliant accomplishment in compromise. Yes, it's small. Well, duh! The iPad Mini is small so the keyboard can't be any larger, or at least not much larger. The keys are surprisingly well-sized and the arrangement is mostly logical and natural for a touch-typist. However, the size of the A key and the choice to combine that with the caps lock instead of tab is the main reason for my deduction of one star from this review. The size of the A key throws off my deeply-learned touch-typing and this one big key being used for caps lock (a function I can't remember using, ever, for many years) instead of tab (which I use every day, all day, nearly every time I write something and often as frequently as any other key when creating spreadsheets or doing data entry in spreadsheet fields) just kills me every time I have to touch it. I can, and have already, gotten used to every other variation of this keyboard, but this one seemingly small design decision is a major pain. I can work around it, but it takes concentration or I make a lot of mistakes. This will probably improve over time but it would have been possible to avoid nearly all of this with just one little design change. Even so, I prefer this keyboard folio over carrying a full-size keyboard, even a folding keyboard, as a separate device.If you're not a deeply-trained touch-typist and you want a keyboard and decent carry-around protection for your iPad Mini, this thing is 5 stars and then some. If you are an experienced touch-typist like me, well, you'll feel that it compromises your typing and it will never be perfect although you'll improve your accuracy over time. 4Keyboard adds value and enjoyment to Ipad use The Keyboard Folio has added to my enjoyment of my Ipad Mini. I'm an excellent touch typist with small hands. There's only one place on the keyboard that I hit accidentally, and with practice, that's not an issue anymore. My first attempt to synch with the Ipad was frustrating. I'm not sure what was happening, but the words showing on the screen were not the words I was typing. It's possible that the keyboard was set to the wrong language. After going online and making sure all the settings were for English, I was able to successfully synch. I agree that it would be better if the on/off switch wasn't covered by the keyboard corner; however, since the Ipad goes to sleep when I close the cover, that hasn't been a problem. I unhook it once a week to turn it off completely and that isn't a big issue for me.The pictures of the Ipad laying flat are somewhat misleading. At this point, I haven't found a comfortable way to use the Ipad sitting on the keyboard in that way. It's too easy to accidentally hit the keys on the keyboard. I'm still at a 5 rating because the Ipad and keyboard together meet my needs in retirement beautifully--for a Kindle and Nook reader, Web browser, using either Gdocs or other document apps for journaling, and synching with my Iphone. 5Perfect. Even if I tried, I wouldn't be able to find a flaw with this case. What I love most about it is, the keyboard turns off automatically during inactivity, even if you haven't locked your iPad or have resorted to the touchscreen for a while, so I rarely ever have to charge it. Actually, I think I've only had to charge it once so far, and that was when it first arrived with a powered-down battery, and it's been nearly 3 months. The keyboard responds immediately whenever you switch it on, too, and you never have to re-pair it with the bluetooth. If you forgot to turn off the power switch, it still shuts off on its own as soon as the iPad is locked and automatically activates *only* if you've unlocked the iPad *and* pressed on a textbox that would prompt a QWERTY screen. As soon as that happens, the QWERTY on the screen automatically disappears to allow the keyboard use, and if you happen to prefer screen-touch typing at that moment, the conversion is extremely fast and easy when you flip off the keyboard's power switch. Brilliant! And the icing on top is, the case is extremely thin and light, with a weight and width comparable to some of the regular heavy duty portfolio cases they have out there for iPads, and with a keyboard that types with ease with great traction on the plastic keys. And what's more, I find the magnetic prop-up stand very useful when watching videos and the curved, concave edge of the case along the right side of the iPad a wonderful grip to hold onto when viewing vertically (I spend much time on Kindle) and best of all, the iPad folds naturally over the keyboard with cushioning so it doesn't hit the keys, when you hold it vertically to read off the screen. I cannot for the life of me criticize this case. It's perfect! 5Awesome case with 1 design flaw (Logitech Please Fix) Totally loved this case for ~4 months until the plastic frame, which secures the ipad to the case cracked. Logitech pushed the proverbial design envelope on this keyboard case. Other than the crack, the case is outstanding - great form factor, battery life, usability. I hope the logitech engineers read this review and correct the problem. To be specific, this case uses two clips (right top and right bottom) to secure the ipad to the case unlike others that use four (eg 4 corners). The right top clip is extra thin (maybe a few mm thick) to accommodate for the on/off power button, which is somewhat of a cut-out. This is where it broke. I want to give this 5 stars, but I can't. Even with the broke clip one can still type due to the magnet that hold the ipad in place when in typing mode. However, it disconnects from the case often while in my backpack. As a result, the ipad turns itself on because of the sleep/wake feature built into the case. 3Wonderful case that could be a bit better I think I have tried at least half the ipad keyboard cases that Amazon carries. I wanted a full case and not just a keyboard that covers the front of the ipad. I had settled on the Sharkk clam case, but I really wanted a case that was more like a "regular" ipad case that just happened to have a keyboard with it. I went through almost all of the cases with removable keyboards and found that none were lap friendly, even the more expensive brands. I finally went beyond my spending limit and tried this case, among several others. It is almost perfect for my needs. It is definitely ultrathin. I've compared the thickness to my previous folio style (without keyboard) case and they were the same! The keyboard is very comfortable and the bluetooth pairing was super easy. The case is not much heavier than a case lacking a keyboard, and it has a stylus holder, which is a nice little extra. I gave it just 4 stars for a couple of reasons. I wish the keyboard was backlit. I tested much less expensive cases that were backlit and that is a very nice touch. Also the colors of this case are limited on Amazon. It would be nice if they offered a variety of colors. I have the black and it's not too bad, just boring. Other than those two wishes, I find this case very perfect for my needs. It's slim, light weight, and fits easily into my purse. That's the purpose of having a mini, isn't it? 4Not bad, but has a design flaw... Keys are a tad to close, but considering this is for an iPad mini, there's not much real estate to work with. My biggest complaint is that there is a design flaw. The iPad is held in the case by two plastic clips at the top of the keyboard folio. the one on the left has a cutout for the power button. Net effect is that there is a 2 or 3 mm thick piece of plastic that holds the iPad in place. As you can imagine, over time this little bit of plastic breaks. When that happens the folio keypad is essentially useless because the iPad will no longer stay in place. 1The phrase concerning not fitting mini. iPad. 4 was. Not present in Amazon description. The intro here did not appear in the sales on Amazon...nothing about not mini iPad 4. Not. Letter I sent to Logitech April 17, 2019Dear representative:About 6 weeks ago, I bought a new mini iPad which I am presently using to write this complaint. I include two photos: 1. Info on my mini iPad, 2. Picture of the broken corner of your case, a view that shows that the case corners is smaller than the mini iPad. I bought the iPad case through AMAZON.S/N 1710CE228E08 for LOGITECH ULTRATHINKEYBOARDI followed directions and in so doing I broke the corner piece as shown in the picture. My fault for forcing the iPad to fit in the smaller space.I am not asking for a replacement as such...I did cause the break.But I have been convinced that I should complain, in that it was through following directions for the wrong case that I broke it. This was advertised in AMAZON as for a mini iPad. Got to have happened to others!By the way, this is the third case and keyboard that I have bought. This is the first problem I have had.William M Shea11028 E Nichols AveMesa AZ 85209480 202 6326Bills08@msn.comCc AmazonPhotos only picture the breakage. 2Not as expected from Logitech The keyboard is a better quality keyboard however because it is so small it's easy to type the wrong letters as the spacing between the keys isn't as roomy as a regular keyboard. I think even though the form factor is nice because it is small it doesn't work for us since it is much smaller than a regular keyboard. It's a shame as I was looking forward to using this on business trips but when I actually used it I ended up making so many typos (which I never do). I can type easily 90 wpm but with the keyboard you aren't typing as naturally as you would so you will slow your typing speed down or make a bunch of errors. It's too bad. 3Don't BUY has serious design flaw. WARNING DON'T BUY LOGITECH ULTRATHIN KEYBOARD FOLIO!!!!!!!!Everything about this product is wonderful you will love it until...............A few months maybe, after using it and loving how well it works it brakes because it has a serious design flaw. See picture. The upper left corner has an (Achilles heel) regular use will break this weak spot and then it's just money down the drain because most likely you will not be able to return it. And if you use it while broken your iPad will fall out.I hope they fix this problem because everything else is perfect. 1

I've compared the thickness to my previous folio style (without keyboard) case and they were the same! The keyboard is very comfortable and the bluetooth pairing was super easy. The case is not much heavier than a case lacking a keyboard, and it has a stylus holder, which is a nice little extra. I gave it just 4 stars for a couple of reasons. I wish the keyboard was backlit. I tested much less expensive cases that were backlit and that is a very nice touch. Also the colors of this case are limited on Amazon. It would be nice if they offered a variety of colors. I have the black and it's not too bad, just boring. Other than those two wishes, I find this case very perfect for my needs. It's slim, light weight, and fits easily into my purse. That's the purpose of having a mini, isn't it? 4Not bad, but has a design flaw... Keys are a tad to close, but considering this is for an iPad mini, there's not much real estate to work with. My biggest complaint is that there is a design flaw. The iPad is held in the case by two plastic clips at the top of the keyboard folio. the one on the left has a cutout for the power button. Net effect is that there is a 2 or 3 mm thick piece of plastic that holds the iPad in place. As you can imagine, over time this little bit of plastic breaks. When that happens the folio keypad is essentially useless because the iPad will no longer stay in place. 1The phrase concerning not fitting mini. iPad. 4 was. Not present in Amazon description. The intro here did not appear in the sales on Amazon...nothing about not mini iPad 4. Not. Letter I sent to Logitech April 17, 2019Dear representative:About 6 weeks ago, I bought a new mini iPad which I am presently using to write this complaint. I include two photos: 1. Info on my mini iPad, 2. Picture of the broken corner of your case, a view that shows that the case corners is smaller than the mini iPad. I bought the iPad case through AMAZON.S/N 1710CE228E08 for LOGITECH ULTRATHINKEYBOARDI followed directions and in so doing I broke the corner piece as shown in the picture. My fault for forcing the iPad to fit in the smaller space.I am not asking for a replacement as such...I did cause the break.But I have been convinced that I should complain, in that it was through following directions for the wrong case that I broke it. This was advertised in AMAZON as for a mini iPad. Got to have happened to others!By the way, this is the third case and keyboard that I have bought. This is the first problem I have had.William M Shea11028 E Nichols AveMesa AZ 85209480 202 6326Bills08@msn.comCc AmazonPhotos only picture the breakage. 2Not as expected from Logitech The keyboard is a better quality keyboard however because it is so small it's easy to type the wrong letters as the spacing between the keys isn't as roomy as a regular keyboard. I think even though the form factor is nice because it is small it doesn't work for us since it is much smaller than a regular keyboard. It's a shame as I was looking forward to using this on business trips but when I actually used it I ended up making so many typos (which I never do). I can type easily 90 wpm but with the keyboard you aren't typing as naturally as you would so you will slow your typing speed down or make a bunch of errors. It's too bad. 3Don't BUY has serious design flaw. WARNING DON'T BUY LOGITECH ULTRATHIN KEYBOARD FOLIO!!!!!!!!Everything about this product is wonderful you will love it until...............A few months maybe, after using it and loving how well it works it brakes because it has a serious design flaw. See picture. The upper left corner has an (Achilles heel) regular use will break this weak spot and then it's just money down the drain because most likely you will not be able to return it. And if you use it while broken your iPad will fall out.I hope they fix this problem because everything else is perfect. 1
