5.0 out of 5 stars It's made me love my iPad more, 25 July 2012
This review is from: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad (4th Generation) - Black (Personal Computers)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I bought my iPad2 I found it hard to justify as I already had an iPhone, a laptop and a kindle. I finally bought an iPad2 when my laptop was in for repair - and fell in love. Since then I've used it every day and used the apple smart cover all the time and a Belkin case Belkin Pleated Sleeve for iPad - Plum (Compatible with New Apple iPad 3rd Generation HD) for when it's in my bag.

To my surprise this new cover with built in keyboard has made me love my iPad more. It means that I can type emails far more easily and it should be fine for travel, rather than having to take my laptop as well. Obviously, it adds a bit of weight - but it's worth it for the benefits of the stand and the keyboard. I have been asked where I got it every time I've been using it when out and about...with people remarking that it gives the look of a netbook

Pros

- weighs 325g so with the iPad2 (600g) it come in under a kilo
- very slim and well designed - aluminium with logitech log and black keyboard. It looks good with the iPad
- keyboard has good typing function and has a home button
- makes great use of the magnets and attached to the iPad securely in both modes
- installation is a breeze - bluetooth and a charge and an on button
- battery life is long - 6 months apparently
- like the apple smart cover, it sleeps your iPad when you close it and wakes it when you open it
- slim enough to still fit in my Belkin case

Cons
- has only one angle when you clip it in to use the keyboard...however it's perfect for me
- obviously has a bit more heft than the apple smart cover but, for me, 325g is worth it for the function
- doesn't protect the back of the iPad- but then nor does the apple smart cover

Highly recommended

EDIT 22/2/2013 just an update to say I have only had to recharge this once and it gets long use daily. It still draws attention whenever I use it in public and i am still delighted with it.

Good point about the protection aspect. What Belkin case have you been able to fit it into? Thanks.
