Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is a cover-style iPad keyboard for generations 2-4. It's designed to be like the Apple SmartCover, but with a keyboard built into it. It has a magnetic hinge to attach the iPad while travelling and when you're ready to type you can easily remove it from the hingle and place it into the slot in both portrait and landscape orientations.

Pro Nice to type on
The keys are great to type on and offer comparable press depth to the standard apple keyboards. From Trusted Reviews:
Layout and key spacing is superb, with number keys doubling as iOS function keys, a full-size right-shift key, and the welcome rarity of a full-size UK Enter key. Everything is exactly where you would expect it to be, and the shallow ridge that runs around the outside disappears to leave your thumbs unhindered access to the space bar. The space bar and other keys on its row are also vertically elongated, making them much easier to hit.
Feedback is equally impressive, with lots of travel and nice firm action to each key. What really sets Logitech’s Ultrathin Keyboard Cover apart from the majority of iPad keyboards though is that the keys are larger. Where the average keyboard case has keys that are 12-13mm across, those on the Ultrathin are 14mm, which makes all the difference in the world.
Pro Great battery life
Logitech claim that if you use the keyboard for ~2hrs a day, one full charge should last about 6 months.
Pro Very light & thin
As the name suggests, the cover really is very thin. A lot of the other cases can be bulky and add a lot of weight to the iPad.
Pro Looks great
The design of the cover matches the iPad design aesthetic really well.
Pro Easy to remove & attach
The cover is super simple to remove which makes it really easy to switch between using the iPad as a tablet and using the keyboard.
Pro Great for using away from your iPad
The bluetooth and the general design of the keyboard is great for resting on your lap while your iPad sits somewhere else.
