UPDATE: One week later, it stopped charging and just died.
Goldengate
The keyboard in this unit is an excellent, full featured keyboard, with well spaced keys for comfortable typing, easy connectivity and long, rechargeable battery life.

With no clip or magnetized catch often it would just slide down flat.

Color Name: Blue
The good:
The keyboard on this case is nice, maybe not quite as nice as the Zagg cases, and has a little more clackety-clackety feel to it. The form factor is nice in that it is slim and you can quickly move the iPad between horizontal or vertical modes.

The bad:
The whole things feels very cheap and it looks like with a little use, the cheap faux leather will be peeling away from several points of the case. The little hooks designed to hold the iPad in place seem very cheap and will also start to peel with time. The fold to keep the iPad upright for typing is very flimsy so the whole thing feels very unstable. This will work fine on a desk, but forget about using it on your lap.

Color Name: Black
I give this 3 out of 5. I bought this at Marshalls (open box) $24.99

GOOD:

1. Smart cover that shuts the screen off when you close the lid over the screen
2. Faux leather nice feel and decent protection to the iPad.
3. Works with iPad 2 and 3.
4. Built in blue tooth keyboard and folding cover to give that laptop feel.

BAD:

1. This needs to be treated lightly this is NOT a rugged case nor is the keyboard.
2. Expect to get 2 to 3 years if you use the bluetooth keyboard daily 4-6 hours a day.
3. When folded out this keyboard is best suited for a solid flat service. (DO NOT BOTHER USING YOUR LAP OR IN A CAR).
4. Keep the case away from liquids and dust, this will ruin the case.
5. Bluetooth case charges pretty fast in less than 3 hours!

SUMMARY:

If you are looking for a decent folding case to protect the screen from scratches and like the use of a keyboard if you have to do a lot of emailing or typing notes on the go on a FLAT solid surface, look no further this is the case for you.

It is too early to say how durable this case is, I will need to follow up in 3 months. Stay tuned.

Color Name: Blue Verified Purchase
The good:
- Keyboard has very long-lasting charge.
- Positive "click" feel to keys for typing
- The clips hold the iPad securely in the case and still allow me to see the device in the color I bought

The bad:
- After 4 months of use the edges of the case are peeling away
- It requires very precise positioning to stand on a table for viewing while typing
- To use the camera, the outer case must be unclipped at the top to expose the shutter

This is a very slim keyboard case for the ipad. It doesn't add bulk and is very nice. The keys are high quality and the layout is similar to an apple computer layout. Great price for the product and shipping was super fast.

This iHome Keyboard Case is great, I love not having to peck away at the on screen keyboard. I just wish it worked with my phone for some of the longer messages I send.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
iHome makes good products, but I have to say right away, that this is not one of them.

Here is what I liked about the product:
* The unit charges up within 3 hours, but it had some charge when it arrived. Charging overnight or at least 6-8 hours should be plenty. The lithium battery claims to last 100 hours which is great, even if only 40 hours before the next charge. Micro-USB to USB cord enclosed.
* The design is slim, which makes for easy carrying
* The keyboard has a nice feel and even though it is not a large sized keyboard (about 65% of a typical keyboard). The keys are normal sized. The keyboard is not oddly rearranged like many
* The pairing was quick and the keys to iPad2 usage was fine

What I did not like:
* My iPad2 slides into the (6) hard clips tightly, but the (2) outside clips which would hold it in place would not clasp around my iPad2 and ended up scratching. They just wouldn't fully grasp no matter how hard I tried. They should be covered with a hard plastic and not painted metal
* There is only one angle that it sits at and the plastic covered cardboard does not feel secure when placed on a flat surface.
* The plastic veneer over the cardboard is cheap. When I tried to pull the plastic cover off the On/Off button, I almost ripped through the plastic with my fingernail.
* The cardboard also bends easily and after a few attempts at sitting the iPad2 case up, I bent the end piece permanently

For the price, I was very disappointed in the quality and the clips that didn't hold like they should have. Fix the clips, the cover material and the cheap cardboard structure and you'd have a great product. But as it is, this is a great disappointment - particularly given the price. When you spend that kind of money on an iPad2, you want good protection as well as good keyboard functionally. I really dislike giving 1-star reviews, but you spend your hard-earned money for a great product.

Color Name: Black
I sometimes need to use my iPad 2 as a laptop, and I find it difficult to do heavy typing, etc., on the touchscreen keyboard. I only use my iPad for this purpose about 25% of the time, so I didn't need one of the budget-busting $150+ bluetooth keyboard cases, since those are better suited to "road warriors" who normally use their iPads as laptop replacements. This iHome Keyboard case seemed to meet my dual need for a protective case with an integrated bluetooth keyboard, at a reasonable price point.

Unfortunately, however, this turned out to be another case of "you get what you pay for." First off, although this is supposed to be a "Slim" keyboard case, it's actually quite bulky. And the magnets that hold the front flap of the case closed are pretty weak (and lose even more strength over time), so it's too easy for the front cover of the case to flop open. Not only does that expose your iPad screen to the elements, but it also exposes the keyboard of the case, risking mistaken key-presses and broken keys. Additionally, although it is very difficult to get your iPad to snap securely into this case, it is exceedingly easy for the iPad to fall out of the case, especially when the case is in "laptop mode."

This leads me to the main failing of this iHome keyboard case: IT CANNOT BE USED ON YOUR LAP. When it's in laptop-mode, it must be sitting on a completely flat, level surface, otherwise it's virtually useless. On your lap (a naturally uneven surface), even the slightest movement will cause the iPad to slide out through the open edge of the case and onto the floor. Even on a desk or tray-table, one wrong move, and the folded "triangle" that props the iPad up, will fall flat on its back.
