WHATEVER YOU DO - READ THIS REVIEW!!! Don't buy this case whatever you do. Here's why...At first you're going to love it. You're going to think, "finally...the perfect case for my ipad". You'll throw away the packaging and the honeymoon will continue for about 2 months. At the 2 month mark, you'll start to have a little difficulty opening and closing the case. You will try various things to remedy the situation, but none will work. As time marches on, opening and closing the case will become harder and more difficult with each passing day. Eventually, the device that holds your ipad in place (which is a cheap plastic hinge) will fail and your ipad will flop backwards like a little baby. At this point you'll try to investigate why this is happening, only to discover that the hinge is a cheap piece of plastic that has cracked. You will get angry as well you should after spending $$$ on a device that's now useless. You'll check Amazon to see if anyone else had a similar problem - and discover that many have. This discovery will make you feel both comforted and annoyed - and you will quickly see that you were SOL the day the thing arrived. You will then go searching on Amazon for the other device you were going to buy in he first place (the less expensive Snugg) and purchase said device reluctantly. Your last step while waiting for your new device will be to write a scathing review of the Zagg on Amazon in the hopes that some poor soul reads it, chuckles and decides against purchasing this device.I rest my case (no pun intended). 1Plastic breaks with minimal use After using this for three months it becomes useless as a case. The tabs which connect the rear case to the keyboard have broken and now the iPad disconnects from the keyboard easily. It is no longer safe to carry the iPad connected to the keyboard because it will now fall off. While it worked it was great but paying this much for three months of use is just dumb.UPDATE: I replaced the case via warentee (had to pay ~$30.00 shipping) and the case broke again!. This time the rear hinge split and the back case cracked. There is no reliable way to remove the back case without it cracking if you want to use another case for a bit - for instance a folio type case when there is no need for the keyboard but you want to just take notes but still have some protection. The product is not worth the price. 1BUYER BEWARE!! I am now on my third case since July, when I purchased the first one. Buyer beware! The keyboard itself is great but the "case" obviously must be made out of inferior product. My first case cracked at the hinges. I contacted Zagg and they sent me a new case, with my agreement that I would ship back the defective one within 30 days. I HAD TO PAY THE SHIPPING (almost $11), which I don't think is very good customer service. Well, the second case lasted about one month before the case started falling apart. Two places on the frame around the iPad literally fell off. I have never abused the cases nor dropped them. After I called Zagg this time, they told me I had to call Amazon since that is where I had purchased the first one. Amazon told me that their replacement guarantee was only for 30-days so they couldn't help me. I called Zagg back and they then said they would mail me my third one. At this point I really just wanted a refund but they positively refused. So, I am now on my third case. After a long discussion, they finally agreed to pay the shipping this time. I hope that the third time is a charm. If not, and this happens again, I guess I will have to take steps that I am not really wanting to take. But honestly, folks. Until Zagg gets their at together, I wouldn't buy from them! 1Hinge defective I liked the ZAGG slimbook detachable Bluetooth keyboard in general, and had high hopes for it, but it started coming apart at one of the hinge points...the upper and lower plastic pieces holding the hinge rod started coming apart (unglued?). See attached photo. I am returning it to Amazon as defective. Not sure what product I will try next...this seemed to be just what I wanted until it came apart. I have read other people s complaints about ZAGG workmanship not being very good...products fall apart...and I have to agree now. Disappointed and not able to recommend this product. 2Functional with a great warranty, yet heavy and fragile Disclaimer: I use stars the way they are intended to be used: 1 star = "Hated it". 2 star = "Disliked it". 3 star = "Neither liked nor disliked." 4 star = "Liked it". 5 start = "Loved it".I bought the 12.9" version from another retailer.First: the bad.1. I bought this case in May 2016, and had it replaced twice under warranty due to cracking plastic despite gentle treatment.2. At a replacement rate of 1 per every 6 weeks, I anticipate having it replaced due to cracks 8 or 9 times by the time my 1-year warranty is up.3. The aluminum-colored paint scrapes off easily.4. This case transforms the iPad from an amazingly light, thin device to one that is heavier and thicker than a MacBook Pro.5. I paid full price when this was new. For over $100, I expected better durability from the product.6. No way to do portrait orientation except to remove the iPad from the keyboard case and prop it up against something.Now, to the good!I knew going into it that this case was a heavy sucker. But there is a lot to love about it:1. Backlit keyboard in 7 different colors and four brightness levels (including "off").2. Bind up to three Bluetooth devices: iPad, MacBook, and iPhone all get the same keyboard.3. Switch Bluetooth devices at the press of a single button.4. Amazing battery life (this explains the weight...).5. Very responsive keyboard that keeps up with my 130wpm ham-fisted typing.6. Sensible function keys.7. Excellent protection for the iPad Pro.8. Fits easily into any 13" laptop bag.9. Reversibility is awesome for presentations, watching movies, etc.With all those pros, I'd probably rate it "5" and "Love it". In the first few weeks of ownership, I would have. But I cannot rate it 5 stars because it's simply far too fragile. I use my iPad heavily for work and home, and even transport in a padded bag doesn't prevent cracking of the case near the volume rocker and the weight-bearing part near the hinge. Repeated removal and insertion of the iPad Pro results in steady degradation of the hinge slot, until eventually rather than "open" with a gentle tug as designed using the small slot at the front, the iPad will tend to simply pop out of the case instead. Every time. Very frustrating.With a little better quality control and durability testing, this product could have been stellar. Unfortunately, it earns a "I didn't like it"; I'll keep ordering replacements under warranty until I either get a unit that doesn't crack up under normal use, or I reach the end of the warranty period. 2They came so close to greatness but couldn't go the distance :( UPDATE (April 7): Well this case went from 5 stars to 3 in just over 3 months. The phrase "so close, yet so far away" totally describes this case. While the keyboard is the best on the market and the back case for the tablet has held up great....the hinge on the keyboard has not done nearly as well. I will admit upfront - I'm a VERY heavy user when it comes to my tablet so I'm frequently opening and closing the case and changing screen positions. For a more average user (which is why this case still has 3 stars), I think it would hold up better but for me the hinge couldn't go the distance. Along the back edge of the slot where the tablet is inserted, it has cracked on both ends. I have never dropped the case, nor do I abuse my electronics. I can't really afford to replace them so I do everything I can to take care of them. With these 2 cracks, the tablet can no longer stay in the slot to operate the hinge. I have to take the tablet out, manually adjust the angle of the hinge then stick the tablet back in. The tablet is no longer able to set securely in the slot and now frequently seperates from the keyboard in both the open and closed positions. So diappointing. Becasue of this issue I am now looking at other keyboard options since this problem is a design flaw and getting a replacement from Zagg would be pointless.I purchased my case in December 2015 from a different site (wasn't available on Amazon yet). My observations are based on daily use of this case including frequently opening/closing the case, changing screen positions for my tasks, and carrying this with me pretty much everywhere I go.By George, I think they finally got it. The back cover for the tablet is MUCH thicker than it was on the previous generations of this case - at least twice as thick as before. The area where the hinge connects to has been properly reinforced this time. The hinge works very smoothly when opening and closing the case and shows no signs of weakening or cracking after nearly 2 months of daily use. Previous generations of this case (iPad Air and Air 2, etc.) suffered from a fatal design flaw that resulted in dismal performance. The case also works well with a screen protector on your tablet (I have a ballistic glass screen protector on mine).As always, the keyboard is very well made and offers excellent functionality including dedicated keys for the tablet and backlit keys with 7 color choices and 3 levels of brightness. The keyboard has auto on/off and there is a power button so that you can turn it off manually if needed. It also wakes/sleeps the iPad. The keyboard base provides excellent stability for the tablet and it has been very comfortable to use in my lap while on the couch or on a bus on my way to work.Battery life and connectivity have been excellent so far. The keyboard is simple to pair with the tablet and can also be paired with up to 2 other devices in addition to the iPad Pro. I have never had the keyboard connection drop off while in use. There is a keyboard function that allows you to keep track of the the battery life and I have not had to charge the keyboard since I charged it when I initially received it in December.Finally, the weight. The tablet and keyboard together weigh about the same as my MacBook Air (mid-2013 model). It definitely adds some weight but I think it is worth the trade off to get the flexibility that this case offers for my iPad Pro. I can position the screen to use the keyboard (like a laptop) with multiple screen angles (just like you can do with your laptop). I have no difficulty floating between using the keyboard and touching the tablet screen as needed. I can flip the screen around for game playing and video watching or lay it flat over the keyboard to use as a tablet. Lastly, when I really want to lighten it up I can just detach the keyboard completly though this position does have one draw back. The back of the tablet is protected no matter what but without the keyboard the screen of the iPad is left uncovered and the case covering the back of the iPad tablet is not smart cover compatible.I considered both the Apple Smart Keyboard and the Logitech Create keyboard before buying the Zagg (was able to see the Logitech and Apple keyboards first had before making my decision). The Apple keyboard, while light and smart connector compatible, lacks the backlit keys that I prefer and with only 2 screen positions feels much too limited. I did not feel that it would be as stable in my lap as i like. The Logitech keyboard also has a limited screen position range, is heavy, and does not allow you to detach the keyboard without having to completly remove the tablet from the keyboard case. 3Nearly Perfect iPad Pro Keyboard Case! I debated long and hard over which iPad Pro keyboard case to buy. I purchased the Logitech Create case and returned it because it's was heavy and uncomfortable. I didn't really want the Apple keyboard case because I was looking for something a bit more substantial and with backlit keys and then I found this. I had to wait a few months for the Zagg kiosk at my mall to get one in, but once they did I wasted no time in buying it.All I can say is that I LOVE this case! The feel of my iPad Pro in it is like I have a touch screen Mac. It's not light. It actually weighs about 4 pounds after the case is installed, but it's a comfortable weight and doesn't feel much different than carrying around a Macbook.The keyboard case is in two pieces. There's a back plastic piece that snaps on to the iPad Pro, and then the keyboard which is aluminum. When the back piece is on you can connect the iPad Pro to the keyboard forwards and backwards which gives lots of flexibility in how you use the case.In normal front facing installation you turn the iPad Pro into a laptop. The keyboard is backlit and you can choose from several different colors for the lighting (see attached images). The keyboard is responsive and smart enough that if you start typing before it's reconnected it remembers what you typed and fills it in so you don't miss a beat. You also have the added benefit of a hinged connection, this allows use of the iPad Pro screen at many angles verses the 1 fixed angle you typically get with other keyboards. The sleep/wake function is also built in so your iPad goes to sleep when you close the case and wakes up upon opening.In back facing installation you can use your keyboard as a stand so that you can watch movies or whatever without the keyboard being in sight. You can also fold the iPad down so that it's laying on top of the keyboard but the screen is still accessible for use.You can also easily pop off the iPad Pro and leave the keyboard behind which makes this keyboard/case combo absolutely perfect for my uses.The quality of the build of this case is outstanding. I often take my iPad Pro with me to work, and most of my co-workers are Mac users. They all comment on this case as they wonder why I'm touching the display of my "Mac". It's a real show stopper when they realize it's actually my iPad Pro. The aluminum keyboard is so well built and so similar to my Mac that my brain often sends my hand searching for the non-existant trackpad.Battery life is amazing. It's rated for a year of use on one charge and as I've only had it a month it will be a while before I have to charge it up.I'm glad I waited to buy this keyboard for my iPad Pro. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a keyboard that is substantial and gives the iPad Pro just a little more of a laptop feel while retaining the flexibility an iPad demands. 5Design flaw = really unhappy customer Super keyboard, super battery, super easy to set up and use, TERRIBLE hinge design. Didn't Zagg do any endurance testing???After 3 months of use, sadly the hinge on my slim book has cracked. The lid won't open without the iPad popping out of the hinge. The iPad is also loose and wobbles when open.I deeply, deeply apologize to all the other reviewers that I doubted. I am so careful, never drop my iPad, always open it gently and baby it like a newborn, so I was sure I wouldn't have any issues. But, here I am, trying to get them to replace my slim book under warranty. Sadly, I also bought one for my husband's iPad mini in February. It worked so well I had to have one for the iPad Pro. Yep...the iPad Mini slim book hinge has also cracked, although I got 7 months out of that one. Design flaw....aarrgghh.UPDATE: 11/26/2016 Zagg replaced the iPad Pro Slim Book immediately. REPLACEMENT HINGE BROKE AFTER TWO WEEKS!UPDATE: 1/1/17 and on my third replacement Slim Book, shell cracked after one month. Hinge still holding up so I'll wait for the hinge to go before ordering another replacement. I wish I could just get my money back.Save your $100 bucks and pass on this product. 1This case has a great potential but unfortunately unlike the keyboard section (which looks ... This case has a great potential but unfortunately unlike the keyboard section (which looks to be well made) the screen cover has been made from a cheap plastic.Add to that the fact mentioned by other reviewers about the hinge being hard to close (which is definitely true) and you end up with the problem we have experienced after gently using the case for just over a week. See the attached photo.ZAGG fix this design flaw and I would love to give this case/keyboard another try. 1Just want i wanted to replace my Brydge 10.5 (kinda) Edited down to 3 stars after a couple months; The hinge receiver (the little holes in the case) started going to pieces.and stretching after a few months. It now wants to pop out of the keyboard when trying to open the clamshell.Original review:I decided i can t keep using my Brydge as the keys on the far left are very unresponsive. I wanted something that was a clamshell style so I can use it on my lap (no kickstands or Apple style folios).What I like:-Looks nice-Good key travel; feels good to type on-Offers some protection for iPad-Easy removal of the iPad from the keyboard-Full size Shift keysWhat I don t like:-Pretty expensive; fit and finish and build quality/feel doesn t quite meet the price-Pencil holder is kind of annoying to me as a non pencil user.-Keyboard a little underweighted; Would trade a little extra weight in my bag for better balance-Would prefer the Home key to be top left and the Bluetooth keys be moved or used with FN 3

You also have the added benefit of a hinged connection, this allows use of the iPad Pro screen at many angles verses the 1 fixed angle you typically get with other keyboards. The sleep/wake function is also built in so your iPad goes to sleep when you close the case and wakes up upon opening.In back facing installation you can use your keyboard as a stand so that you can watch movies or whatever without the keyboard being in sight. You can also fold the iPad down so that it's laying on top of the keyboard but the screen is still accessible for use.You can also easily pop off the iPad Pro and leave the keyboard behind which makes this keyboard/case combo absolutely perfect for my uses.The quality of the build of this case is outstanding. I often take my iPad Pro with me to work, and most of my co-workers are Mac users. They all comment on this case as they wonder why I'm touching the display of my "Mac". It's a real show stopper when they realize it's actually my iPad Pro. The aluminum keyboard is so well built and so similar to my Mac that my brain often sends my hand searching for the non-existant trackpad.Battery life is amazing. It's rated for a year of use on one charge and as I've only had it a month it will be a while before I have to charge it up.I'm glad I waited to buy this keyboard for my iPad Pro. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a keyboard that is substantial and gives the iPad Pro just a little more of a laptop feel while retaining the flexibility an iPad demands. 5Design flaw = really unhappy customer Super keyboard, super battery, super easy to set up and use, TERRIBLE hinge design. Didn't Zagg do any endurance testing???After 3 months of use, sadly the hinge on my slim book has cracked. The lid won't open without the iPad popping out of the hinge. The iPad is also loose and wobbles when open.I deeply, deeply apologize to all the other reviewers that I doubted. I am so careful, never drop my iPad, always open it gently and baby it like a newborn, so I was sure I wouldn't have any issues. But, here I am, trying to get them to replace my slim book under warranty. Sadly, I also bought one for my husband's iPad mini in February. It worked so well I had to have one for the iPad Pro. Yep...the iPad Mini slim book hinge has also cracked, although I got 7 months out of that one. Design flaw....aarrgghh.UPDATE: 11/26/2016 Zagg replaced the iPad Pro Slim Book immediately. REPLACEMENT HINGE BROKE AFTER TWO WEEKS!UPDATE: 1/1/17 and on my third replacement Slim Book, shell cracked after one month. Hinge still holding up so I'll wait for the hinge to go before ordering another replacement. I wish I could just get my money back.Save your $100 bucks and pass on this product. 1This case has a great potential but unfortunately unlike the keyboard section (which looks ... This case has a great potential but unfortunately unlike the keyboard section (which looks to be well made) the screen cover has been made from a cheap plastic.Add to that the fact mentioned by other reviewers about the hinge being hard to close (which is definitely true) and you end up with the problem we have experienced after gently using the case for just over a week. See the attached photo.ZAGG fix this design flaw and I would love to give this case/keyboard another try. 1Just want i wanted to replace my Brydge 10.5 (kinda) Edited down to 3 stars after a couple months; The hinge receiver (the little holes in the case) started going to pieces.and stretching after a few months. It now wants to pop out of the keyboard when trying to open the clamshell.Original review:I decided i can t keep using my Brydge as the keys on the far left are very unresponsive. I wanted something that was a clamshell style so I can use it on my lap (no kickstands or Apple style folios).What I like:-Looks nice-Good key travel; feels good to type on-Offers some protection for iPad-Easy removal of the iPad from the keyboard-Full size Shift keysWhat I don t like:-Pretty expensive; fit and finish and build quality/feel doesn t quite meet the price-Pencil holder is kind of annoying to me as a non pencil user.-Keyboard a little underweighted; Would trade a little extra weight in my bag for better balance-Would prefer the Home key to be top left and the Bluetooth keys be moved or used with FN 3
