    It sounds like you have a ClamCase so I'll put it to you. I've been struggling to decide on a case/keyboard for my iPad Air 2. I've even posted a couple of threads soliciting advice but no one ever replies.

    I love the look and design of the ClamCase Pro but I've also read quite a few reports of cracking and poor durability even with light use. If you have one of these please give me your opinion.

    If not the ClamCase Pro, then which one should I consider? I've seen a few that look decent but they all have bad reviews on Amazon. Any input you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, I do have a ClamCase Pro. I know a few others around here do too. Have you looked at the Keys To Go? I've heard a lot of good things about that one. That and the QODE Ultimate.

    If I had to buy another iPad and a new keyboard, I'd go with another one of these. I did have issues with my first one (and it was replaced for free), but it was user error, and I have to think that all the complaints in general are also just people not taking care of it.

    My first one's hinge started squeaking, and the aluminum started separating. But I didn't crack the plastic like some others reported to have done. I'm seven months into this second one and I'm not having the same issues, but I'm also making sure I'm not kicking it around like I did the first one.

    The keys are pretty solid. Even with me mashing them really hard constantly, they haven't developed anything that would make me think there was going to be a problem in the future. In comparison, I'm sure my Apple wireless keyboard will be dead by the end of the year.

    They SHOULD be in some stores now...

    Thanks for the reply. After reading several professional reviews, it seems that the ClamCase Pro has the very best keyboard but scores lower in durability. The next 2 are ALMOST as highly rated with regards to the keyboard feel but edge past the ClamCase in other aspects. They are the QUODE and the Zagg Slim Book Revised.

    For its hinged design, backlit keyboard with near ClamCase performance, I went with the Zagg Slim Book. Thanks for your reply, no one else bothered to help in the thread I posted.

    No problem. :) I forgot about the ZAGG keyboards.

    Post a review after you've had a chance to use the Zagg. I was following this thread out of interest in a keyboard myself. I have an Asus TF700T with a clamshell keyboard and really like the setup (the tablet itself is problematic and why I got an Air 2).
