Been in the market for a good portable keyboard. Finally ordered this one:

It is seems portable enough and at a great value. Any other suggestions out there for portable keyboards?

I bought the Belkin Folio keyboard case for my iPad mini, it's a dust magnet and I'm forever cleaning it, but the keyboard is nice to use. I have one complaint in that there are no rubber pieces to keep the keyboard off the screen of the mini when folded - I put a microfibre cloth over the mini screen when I close it, but will get some rubber feet to do it properly.

I have the Zagg7 - Works well except I wish it had something that kept it closed.

Yeah, the Minisuit one I ordered has the rubber pieces for the screen... that's why I ordered this one.

Not portable enough for me for the ipad mini... pretty pricey too!

I have the zagg 7 as well. Nice looking case too!!

Bought it a few days before I got my ipad mini.... now I'm not sure I need it since I find it very easy to type on the mini.

I bought one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370746883922

Very cheap at just just under 15 delivered and actually pretty good. Lots of iPad specific keys (cut, copy, paste, home, screen off, media controls etc), same width as the iPad Mini, light and a nice action on the keys.

I have an Apple Wireless keyboard but don't get on with it at all when used with the iPad. A lack of shortcut keys make it much less usable than it should be, plus compared with the iPad specific keyboards it is pretty large, albeit very comfortable to type on.

Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad (http://amzn.to/X7iriU)? Comes with a case that doubles as a stand for the iPad and it's near full-size.

The zagg 7 is really handy and I've been loving it so far and pretty comfy for a small keyboard. Except now I've come across some of the keys not working. I suspect this is a charge issue though...

How are you liking this one? How is it compared to the Apple BT Keyboard?

Thanks!

As I have a Smart Case, I have a Logitech K760 solar keyboard (http://amzn.to/VgAKmu) because I don't need the stand. It's great and a pleasure to type on.

The reviews of the Logitech with case and stand are however pretty good as well.
