Case wise. I am very disapointed. First the case is loose, there is no latch or anything to hold it together when it's closed. So the top and bottom can slip as far as a quarter of an inch which doesn't give a positive feel. There is only a magnet to keep it closed There is no hinge. The part between the keyboard and cover is just a thin peice of material.
I expect my device to be portable, therefore useable at more places than a desktop. This case is for desktop use only, and landscape mode only. The way you see it pictured is the only option that is usable. The iPad slides out easy enough, but when I am out standing in line answering emails, or on a bus, or using a landscape app, the case becomes clumsy. Unlike other cases you can't really fold the keyboard behind the device, doing so causes stress on the back "Hinge" and you can see the glue coming off. I would suspect that extended use like this would not be good and cause further problems with the keyboard / iPad slipping mentioned above.
Final thoughts are that this keyboard / case costs $120. iMountek 3-in-1 case $35. While I like the keyboard of the Zagg, the keyboard on the iMountek isn't terrible. The case of the iMountek is leaps and bounds better than the Zagg. My advice is that if you're going to be using this case at a desk 80% of the time, this is the case for you. If you're going to use this case and be more portable with your ipad, buy the less expensive iMountek.
The reason for the two-star rating is the stand part. I got a Zagg product because I expected quality. The part where the back and bottom meet is flimsy. The groove the pad sits in for viewing needs to be better...deeper? magnetized? If you set it on a desk or table and you don't type too hard it will work for you.
I use it to take notes sometimes with it sitting on my lap and sometimes I type with quite a bit of force. It falls out of the groove constantly. Even when it is sitting on a desk it does it occasionally. It has gotten so bad I'm going back to my old keyboard till my replacement keyboard case comes in. I am very disappointed that can't do what I need it to do which is just hold the ipad steady while I type.
1. Rich-looking leather cover. Looks really nice and very well made.
2. Backlit keys in a variety of colors (such as red, blue, aqua, green, pink, white) and 3 brightness levels. This is my favorite feature of this case because I like to sit in the living room late at night and type in the dark while watching tv.
3. It's very easy to type on this keyboard. It is very well spaced; not cramped or too small. Just right.
1. There is only one viewing position and it is not always optimal (especially when the iPad is on my lap). This is the biggest "con" for this keyboard case in my opinion. There should be at least two viewing positions because a person is not always sitting at a table or desk while using their iPad.
2. The magnet which holds the iPad in place for viewing is strong. But, if you tilt the iPad and case too far back, the iPad will come out of the magnet slot and flip backwards. I have dropped my iPad (and case) more than once because of this.
3. The aluminum just above the keyboard already has several black scratches on it from adjusting the iPad in and out of the magnet slot.
To sum up, this keyboard case is really nice-looking, well made, and has some great features. The best features, bar none, are the backlit keys and nicely-spaced keyboard. The biggest con is the single viewing position and the single magnetic viewing slot which is not the optimal position for lap viewing. Still, this is an excellent keyboard, one of the best you'll find on the market. They really do need to add another viewing position though. Then it will be perfect!
The excellence of the keyboard easily makes up for some minor issues with the case design. Getting the iPad into/out of the case is a bit of a chore, which is unfortunate since it's clumsy to fold the case to use the iPad in vertical/horizontal "swipe mode". The case also doesn't stay shut as tightly as I might like, which gives the case a probably-undeserved "cheap feeling". Neither of these issues have been dealbreakers as far as usability is concerned, again especially in light of the great typing experience.
