Reviews & Questions

Slim Book Case with Backlit Keyboard for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro (English US) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 189.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant simplicity I had an iPad 2 until recently (yes, Dorothy, if you take care of things they will last almost indefinitely!) but it died and I moved up to the iPad Pro 9.7 inch model. With my old iPad 2 I had become quite used to my Zagg keyboard cover giving me the near-laptop functionality AND protecting the auld tablet. I like the idea of keeping my electronics properly protected (see comment to Dorothy above), so I began my search for the PERFECT case/keyboard combination for my new tablet. The Apple cover was nice and uses the integral connection, but doesn’t cover the back of the iPad; numberless other case/keyboards that covered the back of the iPad were available for unbelievably low prices and promised everything, but “too-good-to-be-true” is generally correct (and the reviews corroborated that perspective). Enter the Slim Book Case with Backlit Keyboard. The actual iPad case fullly protects the back of the iPad proper without restricting access to all the ports / switches, camera, etc., and cleverly channels all the sound output right towards the user without exposing the speaker openings. The keyboard offers a near-laptop typing experience (don’t caress the keys - tap them!), and when folded together, the iPad/case and keyboard look more like the afore-mentioned laptop than anything else. The fit and finish are top quality (as expected given the brand and the price) and the entire combination places a pleasant but not onerous heft in your hand. When desired, the iPad/case portion of the ensemble can be removed from the keyboard portion to use in a stand-alone mode. I’m still discovering some of the capabilities of the keyboard, but I’ve already found that it augments the iPad’s many functionalities. The attention that Zagg paid to the design cues on the iPad is obvious - this whole ensemble looks like a single, unified unit. Honestly, what’s not to like? Yes, it costs more than some of the other case/keyboard combinations, but you get what you pay for, and I would rather pay a few extra dolllars and get quality. Get it; you’ll be delighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer service was fantastic! I bought this about a year ago. I noticed it had broken about 6 months ago. I happened to be talking to someone and they said that zagg would replace it for free. I thought no way, but when I called they were very helpful and really amazed me!! Great product, great company, great customer service!

Does the slimbook have 4 cut outs for the 4 speakers?

Asked by: Trees
There are channels on either side of the iPad that guide the sound toward the user. This is actually a better solution that simple cutouts for the speakers.

I just ordered one and received an email that says the estimated ship date is May 24th. Is this accurate or are your still scheduled to begin shipping this week?

Asked by: Rich1
This answer and all other answers related to shipping are false.. Per customer service the emails are correct saying they will ship at the end of the month.. Very disappointed...

Why are there no cut outs for the speakers on the slim book for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro? Will there be a new batch with the speaker cutouts? The case for the 12.9 iPad Pro has them. Thank you. 

Asked by: Lara11
This is by design. In order to create the speaker openings without sacrificing quality, we made it so that there are small sound channels built into the plastic that channel the sound to the front of your iPad. The sound is no different than if there were speaker holes. If you look, there are small cutouts in the plastic where the speakers are located. Please contact customer service with any additional questions. Thanks!

Has the hinge issue been upgraded yet?  I don' wan to buy this based on the many reviews of the hinge issue but may consider if a new model has been released. 

Asked by: Margaret12345678
No... hinge can still be a problem if the unit is manufactured incorrectly. I suggest you look at the Slim Book Pro for the iPad which uses a better hinge design.
