Product Description

Belkin Instinct Premium Ultimate Keyboard Hard Case

The thin and lightweight Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad reinvents the tablet as an enhanced productivity tool. The large, well-spaced keyboard allows for laptop-style typing, while the thin, 6.4-mm profile offers comfortable use with a desk or on your lap.

The keyboard is easy to use and features 3 neodymium magnets that keep the iPad securely in place. You can make the most of the battery life with the automatic on and off function, which saves the battery when the keyboard is not in use and reappears automatically on screen when it is.

With its 160-hour battery life and wireless Bluetooth connection, the Ultimate Keyboard Case gives you the utility of a laptop without sacrificing mobility.

Thin, Lightweight Aluminum Design

With a base made of specially machined aluminum alloy, the Ultimate Keyboard Case offers outstanding durability while maintaining a slim profile. The 6.4mm keyboard case weighs 17oz, making it thin and lightweight for easy transportation.

Large Well-Spaced Keys for Faster Typing

The wireless keyboard for iPad features large, well-spaced TruType keys, helping you minimize errors and increase typing speed. The keyboard also has built-in shortcut keys that allow for easy media control.

Folds Flat for Comfortable Handheld Use

The Ultimate Keyboard Case snaps securely to your tablet, giving you a protective cover with iPad keyboard in one thin package. The case has AutoWake magnets that turn on your iPad when you open the cover and put it to sleep when you close it.

The keyboard case also has innovative precision-hold magnets that secure your iPad in three different positions, so you can find the optimal angles for viewing and typing. When you don't need the keyboard, simply fold the cover back.

Use for Longer with 160-Hour Battery

The wireless keyboard pairs with your iPad via Bluetooth 2.0, so you don't have to worry about plugging it in. It also turns on as soon as you place your iPad in one of three viewing positions and turns off when you've finished using it.

The built-in rechargeable battery runs for up to 160 hours between charges and up to 1,900 hours (or 6 months) when in standby mode. When you do need to charge it, the included USB-to-micro-USB cable makes charging easy.

SoundFlow Design Enhances Sound Quality

The keyboard's SoundFlow design directs your iPad's sound toward you, making the audio of music and movies more powerful and clear.

So, it's a beautiful case, well designed, good quality, durable (so far), light, easy to use.

Keyboard feel is pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. It loses half a star.

Let's talk about QWERTY for a moment, shall we? The QWERTY layout is the standard layout of a keyboard, and is the one we're all familiar with. If you want to type fast, you don't want to have to look for a key or get used to a different layout. Belkin DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS.

The Silver and White version of this product has the bottom row off-set by one key. That means that if you touch-type an X, you get a Z. Blindly hitting the N will result in a B coming up. Etc. They've added one key where the Z usually goes, and that means the whole bottom row is useless. Fools!!!!

The Black and Silver version of this product has a different layout (why??!!??!?). The bottom row of letters are, thankfully, back where they should be. But all is not well: they have added the Tilda key in place of where the comma usually sits, shifting the comma to where the period (full stop) usually sits. This means that it takes a while to get used to touch-typing commas and periods, and results in fiddly stops-and-starts trying to find the right key. It is very irritating. Lose another 1.5 stars for this.

This could easily be a 5-star product. But, if your keyboard doesn't make it easy to type and easy to use, it fundamentally fails.

Belkin - sort it out. Don't f*** with QWERTY. And release a hot fix that makes the comma key the comma key again, and the period key the period key.

I love the basic design of this product but there is ob HUGE FLAW!!! It has a weird key layout where the bottom row of keys are offset by one key when compared to a normal UK spec keyboard, So the Z key sits below the middle of the S and D keys etc, so you have to adjust your typing style and that really sucks, It is so annoying that I am seriously going through all the hassle of sending it back or simply throwing it away!!! DO NOT BUY THIS unless you are sure you get the right model of keyboard layout.

BEWARE! The keyboard supplied to me has a non-standard keyboard layout meaning the bottom row is offset. This makes the keyboard virtually unuseable as I get a constant stream of spelling errors. The Z key is located mid-way between S and D rather than being between A and S as it should be. I've been told that this is because I have the UK specific model whereas the pictures on Amazon and Belkin websites are of the US version.

I've never come across a keyboard in the UK or any other country where the bottom row is offset - this is clearly a huge mistake by Belkin and I have contacted them for some clarity.

I have seen a Logitech keyboard that has the correct layout so recommend that product rather than wasting £90 on something that you can't use.

I was very disappointed with the overall build quality - plastic surround was of cheap quality, and had various pits / dents around it. even before I inserted the Ipad. Not worth the money, when there are considerably cheaper alternatives around. Decided to return to Amazon within minutes.

Did some research on ipad keyboards and this one had great reviews
I ordered this and think its excellent.........had it for two weeks and still using the keyboard off its original first battery charge

It is one of the most expensive keyboards but its well worth it.

About 1 week ago, i bought this product after making sure the information on the net a lot.

But there was "Wrong information", and the product described another Keyboard arrangement.
And just after some another guys and i complained about that, they have changed their information 2 days ago.

They do not want to make the refund and also change the product to "Right one."

Obviously it is a kind of evil FRAUDS.
I will get the REFUND as soon as possible by 'LAW'

Anyone giving this a positive review has probably never done any serious amount of typing on it.

I didn't receive mine via Amazon (ordered, misplaced, refunded) but tried it in a local shop and I'm glad I had the opportunity to not pay for it. The keys are in my opinion good, responsive, and easy to type on. But as soon as you want to punctuate something (a skill which, I must admit, looking at facebook seems to be on the decline) then you are out of luck.

The bottom row of keys has a tilde key inserted between the M key and where the comma should be. So you go for a comma, and you get a backwards-apostrophe. You go for a full-stop, you get a comma.

Infuriating enough if it weren't for the fact that if you go for a forward-slash (like in https://) you have to hold the function key to get to it, and it's nowhere near where you think it is.

Belkin -- listen up! There's a STANDARD UK KEYBOARD LAYOUT for a reason! Don't mess with it!

Other notes: case looks good, not bendy, takes the weight of an iPad well, looks smart. Just don't buy it if you want to actually *type* on it.

Very good keyboard. Had no trouble connecting it to my ipad. It stays in place very securely with the magnetic ridges - only slight problem (as mentioned before) is that the fullstop is in a slightly different place which is a bit annoying as i touch-type and therefore press the wrong button every time. Otherwise, excellent keyboard.
