    I received this recently as a gift, and so far my experience has been almost entirely positive. To start with, pairing was simple. The keyboard is full-size and is easier to type on than my last few laptop keyboards. The stand works well, and I love typing with the iPad in portrait mode, which is how I prefer to set up a computer monitor as well. In addition, since this keyboard is not attempting to be a case for the iPad as well, I can set up the iPad in a much more ergonomic position than simply emulating a laptop. For example, I can place the iPad on something taller so the screen is at eye level while the keyboard is at a comfortable typing position.

    The iPad-specific shortcut keys are handy (home, search, play/pause, etc.), although you do still have to use your finger to make selections on the iPad’s home screen. Perhaps the best feature is that standard keyboard shortcuts like Cmd-C, Cmd-V, Cmd-Z work well when working with text, in addition to things like using Control, Shift, and Alt with the arrow keys to move around and select text by word and sentence, as well as giving you proper “home” and “end” key functions. Standard keyboard shortcuts do not work in the Safari browser.

    The biggest negative by far is the lack of a forward-delete option. On a standard Mac keyboard, I believe that would be Fn-Del, but on this keyboard that locks the iPad, and there is no replacement key combination. I have seen some professional reviews of iPad keyboards suggest that this is actually a limitation of iOS. Perhaps Apple can add this in future, but it is frustrating to work around for now.

    Note that the photos of this product formerly showed a different keyboard layout. The photos are now correct, showing that Fn-Delete locks the iPad instead of being forward-delete. Maybe the old photos were from an early model before it was clear that iOS didn’t support forward-delete? There is also an iPad Home button where a standard keyboard would have the Escape key. Finally, this product is identical to the Logitech Tablet Keyboard (Keyboard-and-Stand Combo) for iPad, iPad 2, iPad (3rd/4th generation), and iPad mini (920-003241), despite the different product number. The only difference is in the exterior packaging — the keyboard inside has the exact same model number!

    This little keyboard works great when it works, but I’m on my replacement one now and am going to need to spend a lot of time on the phone with them again for a 2nd replacement. The first one worked flawlessly for a few months and then would frequently take one character that I typed and repeat it 100 or more times until I could get it to stop. This happened so often as to make it unusable. Logitech replaced it after a number of phone calls, and the new one also worked well for a few months, and now we’re back to the same issues. After my one year warranty runs out, I’ll definitely be buying a different brand.

    Works with Android ICS, and some tips, April 17, 2013

    This review is from: Logitech Keyboard for Apple iPad 2, iPad 3rd Generation and iPad with Retina – Black (Personal Computers)

    Here are some first impressions of the keyboard I purchased earlier today. According to the box, I have the 920-003676, which is the “Tablet Keyboard for iPad, iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation)”. There is also a similar model which has more reviews (920-003241) but different keyboard layout, for Android users there’s a less-widespread model (920-003390) with better key mappings and function keys, and there’s apparently also a model (920-004569) for Windows 8 and Android tablets that I suspect includes a Windows key. Keyboard layouts vary between these models! In particular, some have a Ctrl key at the bottom left corner and some have Fn – check according to your needs. There are also differences with Esc key placement and whether you need a Fn combination for it.

    The keyboard itself feels good for typing, the size is reasonable and anyone used to typing on a laptop will likely be just fine. I’m drafting this review using the keyboard in Evernote so I can save and experiment with keys. The device-agnostic stand/case seems to work well so far; there’s a piece that flips down and clicks into place to make it stable. There’s also a (stiff) sliding piece that can be pulled out further to change the device angle. The one feature I wish it had is something that actually holds the keyboard inside the case, I’ll probably end up juryrigging something to keep it in there and protect the keyboard in a bag.

    I was able to tether this with my phone running ICS (Android 4.0.x, HTC Sense 3.x) with no difficulties. The few Fn- buttons on it partially work (volume up/down, media play/pause/forward/back). Non-working combinations on Android are the show/hide keyboard button, what I think is a camera button, and what I think is a Mute function button, all of which do nothing. The Search/magnifying glass button also appears nonfunctional, and while there’s a Lock button (Fn-Del) that does something it doesn’t appear to work right on Android – it blanks the screen for a moment and tries to go to my lock wallpaper, then goes back to whatever I had open.

    Beyond the basics above, there are a few less-obvious combinations that may be of use particularly for Android power users or developer sorts:
    * The top left button (with a square on it) acts as a Home key, but *if you hold Fn while pressing it it acts as Esc* – this may be the same as a “back” action on Android depending on the application, and for programmers using things like “Terminal IDE” it lets you avoid typing Ctrl-[ or mapping a physical phone button to Esc.
    * The arrow keys act normally in combination with Ctrl- or Shift-.
    * The left and right arrow keys with Fn act as Home and End.
    * The up and down arrow keys with Fn appear to act as PgUp and PgDown at least within Evernote. I will note that the arrow keys all appear non-functional in Dolphin Browser, except that Fn-Up appears to trigger a page reload. I’ve not used Dolphin with a keyboard before, so I don’t know if this is a keyboard issue or a browser issue, but the same key combinations work as expected in Firefox.
    * There are a few other special characters (European accents) available with the Fn- key but not indicated on the physical keys, but I suspect they’re detailed in the actual product manual and may vary by application. The backtick ` and tilde ~ keys are marked Fn options and will be important for some technical users.
    * The Cmd/Splat keys don’t appear to do anything on Android, the Ctrl, Shift and Alt/Option keys appear to behave as expected.

    So far with only a few hours of ownership, I’m very pleased particularly since I’m using an iPad keyboard with an Android device.

    Update: After a bit more research (this was something of an impulse buy), I’m returning this keyboard and getting the Windows8/Android version instead. For my uses (Remote Desktop/remote server access and a bit of programming) the additional key combinations available on that are going to be important, and it turns out that the other tablet is actually available locally, just in a Windows 8 Tablet display instead of with the other wireless keyboards. The keys available on that one include a regular Esc key, a Windows key, and (important for me) F1-F12 keys that I thought I was going to have to use an on-screen keyboard for. For someone doing web surfing, email and the like on an Android tablet, I think this keyboard would still be a decent choice.
