Logitech Ultra Thin Keyboard Damages Ipad screen

I love the keyboard, but I noticed after cleaning the screen really well, the keyboard left a permanent line/partial line on the screen.

I would recommend that anyone with this keyboard, be very careful. Pics will be coming later if I can get it to show up on camera.

Approx 5 months of usage.

I hate screen protectors. They change the feel, the clarity, and they look crappy after just a little use. I like to keep my products simple. Usually put them in a sleve when not being used.

I have since moved away from the ipad 3 and the logitech keyboard since the Mini is out. But the screen protector idea would work for others.

Interestingly enough... My wife and I both have this keyboard. Hers was bought new and min refurbished a month or 2 later.

Hers had a rubber strip under the lip where the iPad edge goes like it was to protect the edge of the iPad during use. Mine came with that same rubber strip affixes to the top of that edge which prevents contact between screen and keyboard in the exact spot you have your line...

Wondering if it was designed to have the rubber where my refurb was originally, but manufacturing messed up placement. Out on travel, will upload a pic once I'm back at home.

Angry Keyboard Permanently Damaged My Screen Protector

Didn't see this forum before purchasing a Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover (920-004013).

Love the keyboard design. However....after 3 days of use, I noticed a deep horizontal line across my Zagg screen protector. The iPad 3 sits in a slot on the keyboard with sides slightly raised above the keyboard surface. My screen protector now has a permanent impression of the slot

Terrible news...!! I'm extremely touchy with scratches and such so that's one of the reasons I went for this setup:
