very good BUT NOT for ipad mini 2 retina
on 29 November 2013
this keyboard has clearly been thought out very well. it's light, well laid-out, nice action and "feel" under the fingers.
it's back-lit which is unbelievable for such a small item
BUT it's just clearly not thought for the mini retina. the clamp that holds it onto the ipad mini is just too tight. you can eventually make it work, but I noticed that the portion of the screen near the clamp becomes slightly warped (you can notice it but holding the screen towards a light), which surely cannot do it any good in the long terms. also you can notice this by opening or closing the keyboard onto the ipad, that the screen shows some signs of extra pressure in that area (small black shapes, similar to what you would see in those watches or calculators if you push a finger on the LCD screen)./
that's why I will return it. it's a shame but they need to release a 2.0 version. the IPAD mini 2 retina is (fact) thicker than the IPAD mini so beware when acquiring accessories. a number of times it's just not clear
