    I dislike it and much prefer to use a Bluetooth keyboard. But sometimes there's no option - say on a plane, where there's not enough room for the iPad and keyboard.

    What I really dislike is the lack of cursor keys - which is rectified by the Bluetooth keyboard.

    No. I don't much care for it. I agree with Tim: the AWK is the way to go for serious keyboard work. The on-board k/b works far better than I thought it would, but it's still just a 5HP emergency outboard on a sailing yacht.

    I actually like it because the text recognition works really well, but the typing angle hurts my neck unlike typing on laptop

    Not a fan at all typing on the 'virtual' keyboard - really dislike the lack of feel of the keys.

    I'll respond to e-mails only if I need to type a sentence or two; otherwise I use the BT Apple keyboard for more extended use. :)

    I really love it. Use it all the time for sustained periods too. No complaints here.

    I just hate the text recognition software. Why can't it learn?

    It's ok if I remember to only use a couple of fingers. It gets really messy if I forget and try to use them all. Oh, wait, that's a problem regardless of which keyboard I'm using. :p

    The onscreen keyboard is ok for short replies to emails, filling online forms or quick notes. Anything beyond that and I'm wishing that I had a regular keyboard.
