    Hi there.

    I'm planning on getting an iPad Air for my wife for creating documents and uploading photos to her Facebook.

    I'm looking for a good bluetooth keyboard that is backlit, long battery life, has all ports & cutouts and has good well-placed (not tight) buttons.

    Any suggestions please?

    Heard great things about the zagg keyboard.

    Dad uses a basic non-backlit from anker. He loves it and it's very cheap

    I have the bt keyboard from Lenovo, mainly because it's the exact same keyboard that my w530 has

    Heard also great reviews for those Zagg ones. But it looks like it has cutouts/ports open for the speakers underneath.

    How about Belkin? Anker any good?

    What models shall i look out for?

    Dad has the non backlit keyboard from anker. Loves it, and has 4000+ positive reviews on amazon

    I really liked the Zaggkeys cover which has the backlit keys but I had problems with double keystrokes. I typed, slower, faster, more carefully and still had the issue. I ended up returning it. I really liked most things about that keyboard but ended up liking the Logitech even better - much easier to just remove the iPad for pick up and go.

    I totally suggest having your wife bring her new iPad to a store like Best Buy and actually pair up and try out the keyboards. I didn't do that the first time and regretted the purchase of the Zaggkeys cover due to the double keystroke issues. I would have seen this problem right at the store, if I had tried it out right then and there.

    Lot's of folks love the Zaggkeys products but I've also read multiple forums suggesting the double keystroke issues - so it's not just a solitary issue.
