The Good Thin form, excellent keyboard, case automatically turns on and off, multiple viewing angles, offers solid iPad protection.
The Bad It's unclear how the plastic construction will hold up over time.
The Bottom Line The Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case might be the best way to turn your iPad into the closest thing to a laptop alternative, offering protection and not much bulk.
The iPad's perfect keyboard companion
With the Ultimate Keyboard Case on, it actually makes the iPad look like a little Chromebook. Some may find the laptop-ification effect unsexy, but I found it comforting, as if it promised no-nonsense easy productivity.
The Ultimate Keyboard Case can even flip into a keyboard-underneath position for tablet or in-flight use. Because Bluetooth automatically disengages, you won't end up accidentally pressing any keys underneath, and can swap back and forth between both modes easily. There's a hint of elevation from the angle of the fold.
This is the best iPad keyboard case I've ever reviewed, apart from the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, which beats it on price and compactness. But Logitech's Ultrathin solution isn't a full case. If you crave complete protection and a really sharp design, this is the best I've seen -- and I've seen quite a few. This is a case I'd actually consider keeping my iPad in all the time.
