    How is everyone feeling about the Logitech keyboard with the iPad Pro ?

    I've got mine and I like typing on it - however, it is so tight fitting on the iPad it is almost impossible to release so difficult to just unhook the iPad and go..

    Also, I'm finding the weight of the keyboard to be significant...

    I'm thinking I may have to return and get the Apple Keyboard instead - though I wish it has backlight..

    Same boat here. A pain in the butt to put on/take off, and it's so darn bulky/heavy. Going to get the Apple one when it becomes available.

    I bought this case and I like it, but I have had a number of keyboard disconnects in my first day of use. It is connected (physically) properly, but the connection seems to drop and needs to be separated and reconnected to wake the link back up.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    The case is not designed to be easily attached and removed from the iPad Pro. It is designed to be semi-permanently attached to the iPP. That is a deficiency of many keyboard cases. Ideally, an iPP version of something like an ultra-thin version of the Logi Blok or Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro would be ideal.

    I had that problem last night. I just ended up taking the iPad out of the case and putting it back in. I'm not sure if that actually solved the problem or not but it hasn't happened since. Maybe it just needed to be reseated.

    As far as typing goes it is awesome, but I don't like the exterior build at all - it feels cheap. Also, as others have said it is very bulky. I wish there were some sort of quick release that allowed the iPad to be easily removed.

    I'm not really sure what to do though as it does feel really nice to type on, much better than the apple version. Hopefully more manufacturers come along that can find a better middle ground.

    The truth IMHO is Apple needs to license the MS Surface Pro 4 Keyboard.... What an awesome keyboard with a track pad. Flame suit on since I have lost my way and said MS did something right

    I do miss a trackpad but I type on my lap a lot when I'm sitting in a chair or in bed and I don't know what is a decent alternative. I do not like that you can't flip the iPad around so that the charging cord can be on the left side and not just the right.

    The Surface Pro 4 keyboard is better than prior ones but not up to my liking versus Macbooks, especially the trackpad.

    We'll see how I feel about the IPP keyboard for $169.00.

    So far so good. But I agree with most people. Great keyboard, extremely hard to put on and take off and bulky. But I'm torn on what to do. I played with the Apple Keyboard and as far as typing, it can't compare to the logitech one.

    I too thought it was hard to take on/off - Until i figured out the trick.

    It's simple, it made me feel stupid. On the thick area on the right of the ipad (or bottom) you simply push down to snap that off and the iPad falls out. To put the iPad in you slide in the top of the ipad so the buttons line up. Then you push the ipad's bottom (or right) into the case.

    Wham bam done - I actually like the keyboard alot.

    I just bought a Logitech K811 to try. Really didn't like the case/keyboard at the Apple Store. I am using a smart cover and silicon case for the back. I like the combination. I put both in a small bag and carry them out to Panera or wherever I go.

    bulky and heavy as others have said but I do like typing on it a lot. not a big fan of how it feels when I fold the keyboard behind the iPad to use it as a straight tablet. I have an Apple Keyboard coming for it so I may switch but I don't think I'll return this, I may just use one or the other depending on my mood.
