I have tried every brand of keyboard and/or folio for the iPad line. I have always ended up with a Zagg product as my final choice. The Zagg cover for the Air has the trademark construction quality of previous Zagg products. The Air cover is the most solidly built and feeling product Zagg has ever released. The newest covers match the color of the Space Grey perfectly. The hinge design is genius at its best. The hinge holds the iPad solidly and is plenty strong to the iPad in any position throughout its rotation range. The iPad is easily inserted and removed from the hinge, without damaging the iPad. The only downside is the inability to use full coverage Zagg shields on the front and back. Zagg claims this can be done, but I promise it will not work. I have witnessed this first hand at the Zagg corporate store. The current workaround is to simply trim the shields. Yes, you lose about 2% coverage on each side, but I find this a small inconvenience for the benefit of the Zaggkeys cover. The iPad is no more open to damage with this setup than what could happen using the system in the Ultrathin. If you're looking for a solid keyboard with top of the line construction and features, look no further than the Zaggkeys cover.
