Well first I just want to say, that basically all keyboard reviews for ipads are less than 5 stars, for the nice ones anyway. People have to keep in mind that when a 30$ keyboard gets 5 star reviews, the price is usually a huge factor in that. Now that being said, because of these low scores on all the higher end keyboards (ie. this, logitech ultrathin, zagg folio / slimbook) I felt like no matter what I bought I would be unhappy with it. Well I had seen this at best buy and decided to bite the bullet and go for it, seeing as it was the only one I had physically typed on already. I have to admit, this surpassed every one of my expectations. I have only two real problems with it:
1.) No backlight. I know that a lot of covers aren't backlit, but a lot of them do. For the price, it would be nice even if we just had one color and brightness to choose from. This isn't a huge problem, considering how close the iPad sits to the keys anyways, but for people who "hunt and peck" this could be an issue.
2.) The viewing angles. In all honesty, this really sn't the biggest deal in the world but living in the digital/social age one would expect the ability to change angle at which the device sits. The only time I really notice this is when I'm laying down and would like to tilt it more towards me. Again, not a big problem but a slight design flaw nonetheless.
That pretty much covers the only two problems I've found so far, neither of which are dealbreakers. The screen sits close enough to the keys where backlighting isn't a necessity, and the viewing angle is very obtuse (ha, see what I did there?). But I've had this keyboard for a few short days and already I love it. The good FAR outweighs the bad:
1.) The keyboard: the keys are VERY satisfying and comfortable to type on. They are very close to, if not exactly, full-sized island keys that are ever-so-slightly concaved to help minimizing slipping and minimizing fatigue during long typing sessions. Flat keys tend to irritate pressure points on the tips of your fingers when used too long. They keys are weighted like a real keyboard, if even a little more so than usual. The actuation force required to press each key is 60g, which is 10 more than average desktop computer keyboards. This may seem like a problem at first glance, but having a keyboard being so thin, higher actuation force gives the illusion of being on a full-sized keyboard. Travel time is good as well, nothing feels cramped on this keyboard, and I never have to look at the keys to see if i'm in the right position to hit a punctuation mark or number.
2.) Portability: At first the biggest issue I had when searching for a keyboard was finding something that a.) was also a protective case, and b.) didn't weigh TOO much. I was very afraid that the keyboard would weigh down my "light as a feather" iPad Air 2. After actually putting this on my iPad, I was shocked with just how little weight it actually added to it. This is actually one of the lighter keyboard cases on the market, weighing in at 14 oz, only .88 of a pound! Most cases are far heavier than that. Also not to mention the iPad it self seems very easy to remove from the case in the event I want to leave the keyboard at home, but being as light as it is I don't see that happening.
3.) Special functions: This really does have quite a few special touches to this keyboard. For one, there is a row of special keys above the number keys that are specifically for controlling the functions of the iPad. There's a key for displaying all open apps, to use spotlight search, to bring up the touch keyboard, changing volume, skipping songs, etc. Another thing that's really nice, is when you prop up the iPad and it makes contact with the magnetic strip, it automatically turns on the keyboard. Finally, the case folds over itself. So the iPad's bottom is touching the face of the keyboard, so that you can still use the iPad as a tablet. It sounds like it would be really bulky, having the keyboard AND the fold beneath the tablet. However, I have to admit it does fold VERY thin. I would actually prefer this to something akin to the Zagg Slimbook, where the keyboard actually detaches from the tablet. This way the tablet stays in the case, but you can still hold it flat. This was one of the best, most overlooked feature this keyboard case has to offer.
All in all, this keyboard is an amazing choice. I gave it 4/5 because of the backlight and the viewing angle issues, but to me neither was worth a whole star each. I wrote this entire review on the keyboard and haven't experienced any key repetitions (pressing a key once and having it register twice), and when backspacing you don't have to repeatedly tap the delete key to avoid over deleting. All in all, this is the best case i've ever had. I've owned the ZaggFolio for Galaxy Note 8.0 and while at the time felt amazing, after using the Logitech Type+ I've found that the Zaggfolio cannot even begin to hold a candle to this keyboard. If you have the money and want a solid keyboard with excellent keyboard functionality and interface navigation, this is the keyboard for you. While backlighting and multiple viewing angles are not an option, those downfalls are VERY easily overlooked. Pick this up if you can, you will love it!
1. Solid keyboard, with keys that are evocative of the lovely sleek Mac keyboard keys.
2. Cutouts in all the right places
3. Easy enough (but not too easy) to get the iPad in and out.
4. The closed case has a reasonably nice aesthetic, to my mind... my favorite of the three cases. To me, it's the best suited to the aesthetic of the iPad itself... I would really love to find a case that's Apple-like and very sleek; the iPad Air 2 itself is so lovely and any keyboard case I've seen just stomps all over that. Le sigh.
5. Has nice F and J bumps to find homerow without looking.
1. No escape key. When I looked at this online, I was just checking for cases that have six full rows of keys and didn't check carefully enough about particular keys. Very few users will care about this.
2. Can't adjust the angle of the screen relative to the keyboard, as you can with some cases.
3. This is rather awkward to fold back the keyboard and just read from the tablet. It doesn't comfortably
4. I prefer a case that has velcro or something to hold the cover when you're not using the keyboard and just reading on it as a tablet.
The other cases I've tried are:
1. The Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 (White)
This has only four rows of keys, so I was definitely disappointed
2. The Kensington KeyFolio Thin X2 Plus Backlit iPad Air 2 Bluetooth Keyboard Case (K97391US)
The keyboard layout is similar for these two cases (including no escape key; maybe I am SOL)
The Kensington is overall a smaller case, and hard plastic, but seems to have a weak spot at the hinge between the two halves
But is really rather similar in functionality to the Kensington here.
I am going to look into keyboard remapping, and contact both manufacturers, but my guess is that I don't get to have an escape key. I'll also continue to try out both keyboards, and will update this review if I learn more or my opinion changes.
Update: I was just googling the escape key iPad issue and found some helpful suggestions that I will note here and try out later:
1. "If you have a keyboard with the "keyboard key" the fourth from the left On the top row of keys. This functions like the escape key on other keyboards." So this might work.
2. Give Ctrl and [ a try that should send the same as Esc (ASCII 27).
This might mean this case works fine for me... when I'm in a position to connect to the servers, I'll try it and report back.
1. This did not work for me, as well it should not. The keyboard key is there to allow you to have the regular iPad keypad show up on the screen itself.
2. Ctrl-[ did work for me
3. Fn-<home> also worked for me (function key + the square button, on the upper left)
I'll mention as well that I'm using the app Prompt to get to the servers, which does provide an escape button on the touch screen... but I wanted it on the keyboard.
So I will keep trying out this case and might end up deciding this is my preferred case.
