Like all of the keyboards covered, the Profolio+ is almost full size and provides a great typing experience. Even the fastest touch typists should be able to use this keyboard with little effort.
The case uses magnets to turn the iPad on/off when the case is opened/closed. Magnets also hold the case closed when not in use.
The backlighting on the keyboard may sound like a gimmick, but it came in handy quite often in my use.
ZAGG produces some great keyboards, including several in this collection. The ProPlus is a thin cover that includes a backlit keyboard (7 selectable backlight colors). The iPad sits in a slot above the keyboard where it is held firmly by magnets.
The ProPlus supports Smart Cover technology and the iPad is turned on/off when the cover is opened/closed.

Those wanting a separate keyboard for the iPad will find the ZAGGkeys Flex to be an outstanding choice. The keyboard is slightly bigger than the other keyboards in this collection, and is very close to the size of a standard keyboard.
The black carrying case of the Flex opens to become a stand for the iPad. The separate keyboard means that it can be positioned wherever the user prefers for typing.
Since this is a separate keyboard, it can also be used with the iPad mini.
Android tablet owners may want to give the Flex a look, as it can be used with those tablets, too. There is a toggle to turn the row of special control keys into keys for Android tablets.
Dimensions: 9.4x5.0x0.75 inches; 11.3 ounces.
