Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect accessory for an iPad Pro I bought the Slim Book 2 months ago after reading a lot of positive reviews about it online. Firstly thank you to everyone who recommended this awesome product, secondly thank you to Zagg for making an awesome keyboard for my iPad Pro & thirdly thank you to Zagg's great customer service rep Bobby, who helped me when I was frantically trying to order the Slim Book only to find it sold out. He informed me that the Slim Book was sold out but more was to be in stock soon & that I could place a pre-order. I'm so happy with this product that I don't think I can use my iPad without it. I've been bragging about it to my friends & family from the day it arrived in the post. Not only is it functional but it is comfortable & oh so easy to use. Great for searching for recipes & have the instructions easily visible & ideal for watching movies. Best partner in crime an iPad could ever have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving IT! I recently upgraded my iPad 3 with an iPad Pro, My iPad 3 folio keyboard had worked flawlessly and is still working. I briefly tried Apple's Keyboard, but returned it after a day's use. Turing back to a trusted friend I invested in the ZAGG Slimbook, With Slimbook and my Glass Invisible Shield my iPad Pro investment is well protected and yet still has that light-weight feel of just the iPad. The four mode feature is proving a real benefit, that was my gripe about the origin folio for iPad3's case. Problem solved. Being a perfectionist, I have a few suggestions that are worth mentioning. 1. It wouldn't be that difficult to change the case to support both orientations of the iPad (vertical & horizontal). 2. Now I've got this nifty smart connector that's unused - it would be neat, but not really significant. It would present significant design challenges with the four modes. 3. Apple Pencil holder would be great, but would but so would a coffee mug warmer. Setting aside my constructive suggestions, I can without hestation recommend this case/keyboard. IMHO: It's the best out there. However, if you're riding your mountain bike across the Rocky Mountains or in a harsh outdoor environment you might spend the extra $20 for the ZAGG Rugged Book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keyboard/Case for iPad pro meets expecations Just received my SlimBook and it is as advertised. The Pro's: 1. I like the way the lid detaches from the keyboard allowing you to use it for reading but also use it for video watching by attaching it to the keyboard in reverse order, which makes the keyboard a stand. Detaching the lid also allows you to charge the keyboard while taking the lid and iPad with you. 2. The keyboard is very easy to type on. The pairing was almost immediate and the backlight keys are a great plus. The typing is not so loud (as it was on my previous keyboard that was advertised as "smart") as to disturb anyone around me. 3. The entire product has a stable feel and the protection of the iPad is excellent. The Con: My one disappointment is the Slim Book lid does not have the cut-outs for the iPad Pro's four speakers which does mute the sound some. However, it does not mute them so badly as they cannot be heard. Plus, I do not use my iPad pro for a lot of music so that is not a deal breaker for me. All in all I'm a very satisfied customer. This is my second Zagg Keyboard and have been very happy with each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BAR HAS BEEN SET Ridiculously versatile, this thing has everything I needed/wanted PLUS MORE! Durable/portable design, seamless attachment and ultra responsive. Underrated detail to rave about; seven different color options and three brightness settings for the backlit keyboard, making this keyboard even more aesthetically appealing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Keyboard case solution for iPad Pro I have gone through 4 different keyboard cases for my iPad pro. None were any good. 3 stars at best. The new Zagg is the best keyboard case available. Backlit keys, great protection for the iPad pro, easy to handle and cary, multiple viewing angles (same as a laptop). This is well worth the money and is the best keyboard case solution available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works better then others i have had I purchased this one because of a friend recommendation. It takes a couple of seconds to link up and respond but it does work 99% of the time. Others that I have had worked very inconsistent. You have to press the keys harder on this one then on previous ones i have used so that takes getting used to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit clumsy but sturdy The keyboard and cover seem sturdy but a magnesium alloy keyboard portion would have been much nicer. I like the flip tab in the back. I had a slim book key board that I had to warranty replace three tims because the hinge kept breaking from opening and closing. This is a much better design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything except keybrd "touch" - too hard This is my second Slim Book Case as result of warranty of first Book Case (magnets holding IPad into grove of keyboard kept falling out). I am a very fast typist, and the touch on this replacement keyboard requires a heavier action, especially the space bar. I have had to go back and fill in space between words several times during this short paragraph as well as fill in letters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So many great Features!!! Love this as it does make my ipad more like a MacBook with the protective hard cover and I love all of the different ways this can be a laptop, an ipad, you can turn the screen back and make it like a tv screen, or fold it flat opened or closed. This really is versitile. Mine unfortunately started to break down and crack at the seam where it attaches to the keyboard little pieces would break off unfortunately so I've lost some of the ways it can be used :(. But previous to this it was truly a wonderful and multi functional keyboard and case for my ipad II

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Like the way it fits, it’s easy to use. It’s a little heavy in the 12.9” size, but this isn’t an iPad you’d tote around its you every day. When attached it opens/closes like a laptop. However, the hinge on it stopped being flexible. Zagg is amazing. They have a replacement on its way. Really like the Zagg product, so will continue using this one until they come out with a newer, better version for the 12.9 iPad.
Date published: 2017-11-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it from all prospectives but one: The texture on the outside surface of the Slim Book Case is fine. To the point where it is slippery if the your fingers aren’t clean, or you fail to grasp it firmly. Compared this to Zagg Folio which has a well defined texture on the outside promoting a much better grip. After all watching your Slim Book fly through the air could be expensive. Could a design change could be considered?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design I bought my iPad cover with keyboard nine months ago. It works flawlessly . Unfortunately the hinge cracked which ruined my use. Thankfully ZAGG staffing readily replaced it for me without hassle. I sure hope the new cover will not repeat the same problem
Date published: 2017-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this cover/keyboard combo. Bought my first one 11 mos. ago. I use it so much that the little tab slots on the case portion wore out. But I couldn't ask for more from a case. Good protection, slim, light, backlit keyboard with an looooooong battery life. Easy connectivity and unique controls just for my iPads features. My favorite iPad accessory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keyboard This is a replacement since my other one broke. I really do like it, but the keys seems to be "tighter " than the first one. Hopefully they will getting a little looser as time goes on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far very good. Hinge better than the last generation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much improved product than its previous model This is a warranty replacement keyboard folio case for iPad Air 2 that was broken at the hinges which buckled up preventing to remain in upright standing position. Hopefully, because of separated pieces and only connected through through a magnetic clip will last long without any problem associated with previous model. I just got few days ago and it too early to make any assessement for durability and quality in long term usage. However, we like the new folio with multipurpose usages positions and have the ability to separate from keyboard and use in four different positions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great case, holds its charge, all the whizz-bang! I loved this case until the hinge froze up and broke after about 10 months. I have sent it back and am requesting to upgrade to the one with the magnetic hinge so it doesn't happen again. I had to give it 4 stars instead of 5 for the hinge issue.
Date published: 2017-07-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Better Better I have only had for a few weeks te hinge is improved and the backlight is a nice touch. I hope it out performs the last keyboard from Zagg that had a poor keyboard hinge design. There customer service is real customer service.
Date published: 2017-07-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality for price I have been using the Zagg for about 2 months now and I am quite please with the product. The keys have the perfect touch and my I pad pro fits perfectly. My 29 year old son, who is a computer guru, was very impressed. I saved ALOT of $$ by not buying the Microsoft keyboard which was not "backlite".
Date published: 2017-05-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for using your iPad as a laptop this was a warranty purchase as the hinge of my previous slim book got broken. Nevertheless I consider is the best of the cases in the market to use your iPad as a laptop, it is light and very convenient for traveling. Also Zagg customer service team are really helpful and expedite to find a solution or provide support when needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Keyboard Case with fragile hinge Very happy with the day to day operation of the keyboard, works great. However, had the case for about 4 months and the hinge failed. Zagg replaced very quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love its versatality! This is my third keyboard case because the magnets get out of position and the cover will not open or stay in position. I'm hoping this newest design solves this problem! ZAGG has been very supportive in its replacement process. I love how it increases the function of my Air iPad!
Date published: 2017-04-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick change from video to keyboard It's been very useful to switch between watching videos or using the attached keyboard. The user still has the ability to use the touchscreen keyboard. The two attachment guides broke off, but Zagg immediately sent me another case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost everything I wanted It's protected, slim and sleek, versatile. I've already convinced two friends to buy one
