Customer Questions & Answers

Easy pairing with Ipad or other tablet with Bluetooth capability.
T. C.
The problem is that after a few word/sentences the spacebar, backspace and two of the arrow keys stop working.
Amazon Customer
The keys are the same size and shape as on the Apple keyboard, and have a very good "feel" to them.

Pros: Light weight, compact, full sized keys, iPad specific functions, easy setup, black color, mechanical sliding power button, great value.

Cons: Flexes in center, power switch on top (instead of bottom).

As "magical" as the iPad is, to be really productive with it you are going to need a keyboard. You'll probably gravitate to one of three solutions: Apple's iPad Dock with Keyboard, Apple's Bluetooth Keyboard, or this Targus bluetooth iPad keyboard. I have extensive experience with the former and will address them briefly before reviewing the Targus.

Apple's iPad Keyboard Dock: This works well enough for the 1st generation iPad, but it suffers from two serious deficiencies. First, it has a stand built into it, making it less portable, and allowing only portrait mode (which is lame for email), while not allowing for an iPad case (not even the thin Apple case). Second, though it works well with the 1st gen iPad, it is extremely difficult to get a 2nd gen iPad mounted on the stand; the curved back makes inserting the dock connector into the iPad 2 frustrating, at best.

Apple's Bluetooth keyboard: It was made for their desktop computers and lacks iPad specific function keys (while not a deal breaker, I miss them). Also, although there is a power button on the unit, it is ambiguous whether it is on or off. Turning it off requires a three-second button press and careful observation of the indicator LED. This is a real issue because, being portable, the iPad often wanders away from the keyboard but stays connected to it wirelessly which disables iPad's virtual keyboard - requiring either a trip back to the keyboard to power-off; or a virtual trip to the iPad's configuration menus: GeneralSetting/Bluetooth/Off.

First, the technicals on my side : I tested this keyboard with a first generation iPad, 32gb, WiFi/3g model. I used it on the notepad and playing a NYT crossword puzzle. I also used it to navigate around my device.

Stated plainly, this is a great product and really enhanced the iPad's usability. I highly recommend this iPad accessory.

The Set-up / Pairing the Keyboard to the iPad - It was VERY simple to set up and the four step directions were clear and easy to follow. Using the directions, the keyboard was quickly paired via BlueTooth to the iPad in, literally, just a few minutes - and that's from opening the packaging to actually using the keyboard. Nice!

Pro's :
1. Super easy and fast set-up. All you need is a pen to depress the pairing button on the back of the keyboard ( onetime, on initial discovery only ).
2. The keyboard really does have a great feel to it. The keys are good sized and have a genuine tactile feedback. Typing is easy and hand/finger placement feels natural.
3. The keyboard has a quality feel without being too heavy. It's lightweight but not cheap feeling!
4. No fold-out feet that typically end up breaking off. The keyboard "slant" is lightly weighted and contains the battery compartment.
5. There are multiple, very helpful SmartKeys, including a "Return To Home" button.
6. Multi-tasking is supported by double clicking the HOME button. Nice touch here.
7. Very long battery life - box states up to 7 months... there's a low battery warning indicator as well, so you won't get caught unawares.
8. Batteries are INCLUDED ( two AAA batteries ).

Con's : Really I can't complain, but if I had to find some, they're very minor ...
1. The Keyboard doesn't have a sleep button.

While the screen keyboard of the iPad is certainly easier to use than that of an iPhone, it isn't the best if you are typing a lot, such as taking notes or writing an article. For that, nothing beats a real keyboard, and the Targus Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard is a quite decent one.

The keyboard itself is compact and lightweight, with large "chiclet" style plastic keys that are similar in appearance to what you'd find on a MacBook. As this keyboard is specialized for iPad and Mac, it has the Apple-specific option and command keys, plus a row of dedicated function keys that are mapped to Home, Search, start slideshow, audio controls and lock. It paired easily with both my iPad 2 and iPhone 3GS, but it can pair with only one device at a time. The feel of the keys is decent with good travel, again much like on a MacBook, and the layout and even the legend fonts match that of a MacBook.

The only negative I found was that the center front of the keyboard was a bit bouncy - there is a small plastic tab that sticks out from the underside of the keyboard but it doesn't quite reach the surface it is resting on. There are four rubber bumpers on the corners. If you press down on the space bar you can feel it flex and perhaps hear a small tap as the tab hits the table.

The downside of using a keyboard with an iDevice is that you'll still have to touch the screen for many functions. For example, while I could do a search, I could not select any of the found items with the keyboard. I had hoped I could use the arrow keys for that. This is not a knock on the Targus keyboard - it's just the way the iDevices are designed - and in normal use it is not likely to be a hindrance.
