A #1 Service!Date published: 2017-06-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Anjali from I bought this a month ago but then had to get a replacement but the customer service was great and they were very understandingDate published: 2017-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Tanker from Asbsolutely love the Slim Book Case After receiving the Slim Book & taking it out on it's first test drive I gotta say I'm extremely impressed. I had read reviews about the hinge problems in the past but seems to have been upgraded nicely. Love being able to switch the case into a tablet mode, or using it without the keyboard attached. I have to mention that Zaggs customer service is second to none! Will definitely keep purchasing from Zagg in the future! ✌️Date published: 2017-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by TomBoo from Finally, a Zagg Homerun!!! Got this to replace the original Zagg folio for the Mini 3. While the folio was good, this Slim Book Case is da' bomb!!! I use a rugged case for my iPad Air, and love the ability to take the screen part off and use it separately. Now, the Mini has the same feature. Better hinge system, incredible battery life, really good backlit keys.... You simply can't find a better solution. Well done, Zagg. And, no, Zagg didn't pay me to write a good review.Date published: 2016-12-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Dewman68 from Turned iPad mini into mini laptop I looked at many different keyboards for my iPad mini but kept coming back to this one. With its versatility of different modes and a backlit keyboard added to the list, it was a no-brained. I debated over whether I should pay the money for it and I'm glad I made the plung and purchased it. If you are having doubts about this keyboard, don't, it is well worth the money.Date published: 2016-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Middlax from Great Service The spine which holds the iPad broke after 10 months of use.

Thank you!Date published: 2016-11-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Captain Lou from Zagg iPAD Mini2 Slim Case I purchased the iPAD Slim case for 2 reasons. 1 To protect my iPAD with as small a case as possible. 2.

I have owned many keyboards for iPads, and bought this one for my very elderly (92yo) mum who is also very agile. This keyboard is just beautiful to operate. The keys have the same tactile feel as quality Mac laptop computer keys and the keyboard itself is slick, stylish and very functional.Date published: 2016-06-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Topperhill from I just paired the Zagg keyboard with my IPad and am looking forward to using it. I loved the other one I had, so easy to operate, great instructions.Date published: 2016-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by rockermom23 from awesome case I purchased this case two months ago.

I like the thin keyboard and easy to feel keys,makes typos unlikely. I would buy another if needed.Date published: 2016-05-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyauras from Awesome I bought this a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. The keyboard connects everytime without issues. Love the back lite keyboard. I also love that you can separate the ipad from the keyboard without having to remove it from the case. It does add some weight to the mini. I would highly recommend this product if you are looking for the tablet laptop experienceDate published: 2016-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Dori77 from Love it! I upgraded from a previous version and this one is So much better! Sturdier, love the back lit keyboard, connects via BlueTooth much easier and faster. I am very pleased with it. Also, the Customer Service has been excellent as I had to replace a faulty keyboard.Date published: 2016-04-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharona from Many Special Features I have had this keyboard case for about two weeks and I am very happy with it. The keyboard works every time and I don't have to worry about battery life. It easily comes apart for use as a tablet when not needing a keyboard, and turning into a stand when watching a movie. I fly a lot and the backlit keyboard makes a big difference in a dark plane. Thanks to Zagg for making such a versatile product for my IPad Mini.Date published: 2016-04-05Rated 5 out of 5 by wurbelle from Slim, protective -- so far so good My son (8 years old) loves his new slim book cover for his iPad mini2.

I'm having difficulty keeping the connection with the blue tooth. When it works it works great, to reconnect takes a lot of time and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Should I be turning the keyboard off everytime I close the lid?
Can you change the color of the back light keys when using the back light keyboard?
I bought a Zagg Slim Book cover iPad mini/2/3 and the access area which allows me to charge my iPad has snapped in the center after only 2 days use. Either its to thin or poor quailty. Has this been an issue?
Is this case durable protection like the Rugged Book is for the iPad Air? I know it is multi functioning the same as the Rugged model, but I'm wondering specifically about the durability and protection of the iPad.
I really want to leave a review but find no button to press on the reviews and question page, so I am leaving it here. The slimbook keyboard case for my iPad mini cracked (first one). Replacement arrived. Within a month all kinds of cracks again. Why?
How do I pair with ipad
I really want to like this for my iPad mini. However, with all the negative reviews about the hinge cracking, and other quality problems, who can make me feel more confident that I won't spend more time dealing with warranty repairs than I will using it?
I bought the slimbook for ipad mini 3. Everything works great but the world symbol key when pressed open up the search panel instead of allowing to switch between different languages. Is there something that I need to do?
If you remove the back case from the keyboard side, can it be paired with a Smart Cover? Ideally I would like to buy this and a separate smart cover and switch out when it's attached to the keyboard and when it's attached to the Smart Cover.
When the case is closed, does the iPad Mini completely/perfectly cover the keyboard?
