The delivery was extremely fast and the packaging was neat and secure. Overall a five star performance.
Not what you would expect from an Apple product.
Nor is the insecure feeling of the lock of the dock, with the iPad wobbling somewhat alarmingly from side to side, rather than fitting tightly as I was expecting.
That said, this is a fantastic feeling keyboard - just the right amount of resistance on the keys, sleek, industrial lines and a fabulous design. The iPad specific buttons are also bordering on genius. So much so that I really struggle to go back to using my laptop after a session with this, inevitably finding myself jabbing the non-touch screen with my finger and wondering why nothing is happening.
A glimpse of the future of computing no doubt - detachable touch screens are here to stay - but for once Apple have missed the mark a little in terms of the functionality of the design. Don't regret the purchase though, and like I said in the title, essential - especially if you are prone to break into prose while using the iPad.
Love it and worry about it in equal measure. I will be first in the queue for the next revision I imagine.
There are some useful keys on the keyboard - return to home page, lock the screen which turns the iPad off until you press it again, brightness control, volume control and keys for moving through music tracks.
You have to use the iPad in portrait mode as the docking port is at the bottom of the iPad so that does limit some of its uses and some of the keyboard short cuts you would expect like bold, underline etc, don't apply.
It has a socket for connecting powered speakers to the base but I haven't tried it yet.
As I said in my title it's nearly there and if it was £25 it would have got 5 stars but like all Apple equipment it's not cheap.
However the one that I purchased from this seller was not the English model as advertised. My girlfriend had opened it up and was using it before she realised that many of the symbol keys do not work as shown and in fact then we realised that there were some unusual keys on the keyboard. Am surprised Amazon allow a retailer to sell items that are not as advertised and hope that other people steer clear of this reseller.
4 stars as sometimes it takes a bit of wiggling to get it to register its prescense on the iPad and when connected the iPad does feel a little bit wobbly on its base.

Swedish keyboard (not English) only compatible with Ipad (not 2 and 3 as advertised).
Otherwise at least in original packaging.
Very pleased with how it works, IPad fitted in easily but would have liked the IPad to have had a landscape dock as well as a portrait dock as it can be top heavy in portrait mode.Published 23 months ago by Branna

Works ok, but it's definitely not a UK intended product. The £ # type symbols are all over the place. Bit of a lottery as to where they are. Could make a good party game.Published on 22 Feb. 2014 by Curzie
This keyboard is not the MC533 as advertised but is in fact the MC533S. What does the S stand for? Apparantly Swedish, so the keyboard layout is different and you get the Swedish... Read morePublished on 18 Jan. 2014 by maggie jones
