nice keyboard and case
nice quality case. i get compliments on how it looks.
the keyboard is a smaller size, but works pretty good. will have to double check my typing once in a while for double typed letters, but i can get up a decent typing speed considering it’s a smaller silicone keyboard. F and J keys have a raised bump so you can easily find the home keys in the dark. it looks like a windows bluetooth keyboard, as there is a windows key (cannot find any usage yet), as well as a context menu key, also has control, alt, del keys (just tried ctrl+alt+del and it restarted my tablet) function keys work as well. the keyboard charges with a micro usb port (cord was included) located on the side.
two minor downsides i can think of:
if you use tablet’s port, you cannot close the case properly. you still can, but you will have to shift the tablet out of it’s pocket a little.
although you can flip the keyboard around so you can use the tablet by itself, the keyboard will be on the outside so it’s a little odd when you hold it.
other than that, it’s a great product
A lot for your money!
I didn’t want it but I love it now.
I am very happy with this purchase even if I thought at first that I would wind up reselling it.
5 stars for function and 1 star for documentation – still a value
Much to my dismay it had no instructions in the box, nor any written on the box. What threw me is the Connect button sits in a shallow recess that felt like it was an indicator light. Fortunately I am both technical and tenacious. On a hunch I took a ballpoint and pressed the button lightly while my Galaxy Note II was scanning. Bam! It paired. When I told my phone to connect it told me to enter a 4-digit number sequence in the keyboard, and it connected effortlessly. See the customer-supplied images at the top of this page for photos.
Had I been a non- or quasi-technical person I would have probably given up and shipped it back for a refund. As it turns out this is one of the nicest keyboards I have come across. The quality is remarkable for such a low cost device, and if you are using this with an iPhone or iPad then I think you will find this to be not only functional, but a visual delight as well.
Here are the instructions for anyone who is researching keyboards and decides to order this one. Please refer to my uploaded photos for visual reinforcement.
(1) place 2 AAA batteries in the battery compartment.
(2) move the On/Off switch to the left to place it in the on position.
(3) go into your device’s settings and find the bluetooth settings screen. Have it scan for new devices.
(4) depress the Connect button on the back of the keyboard (it is to the right of the On/Off switch). You may need to use the tip of a ballpoint pen or similar object because the depression in which the button sits is small and shallow. My finger was too large to depress it without a ballpoint.
(5) it will appear on your screen once it is paired. Next, tell your device to connect to it, then follow the onscreen instructions by entering the number displayed on your screen using the keyboard and pressing ENTER.
I am so impressed that I am ordering one for my own phone. I hope the manufacturer gets a clue and creates a simple instruction sheet. It would take a single side of a page, and would significantly enhance the ownership experience and satisfaction of new customers who are not tech-savvy.
Decent, but beware the pitfalls
Let’s talk about the keyboard. It’s made of rubber, and the “Q” to “P” keys occupy slightly less (say, 5%?) width than the Q through P keys on my desktop keyboard, which isn’t bad and certainly isn’t significantly different enough to cause any problems. The keyboard is a standard bluetooth unit, and will work with any device that needs a bluetooth keyboard. It charges via a micro-USB port – a cable, but not a charger, is supplied with the unit, so you can charge it by plugging it in to your PC.
Once turned on, the keyboard seems to be active all the time – that is, I didn’t have problems with the keyboard “going to sleep” and needing to be pressed a few times before becoming active again like other BT keyboards I’ve used. Overall, it’s a good implementation of Bluetooth.
The fact the keyboard is rubber makes sense – you don’t want something harder scratching up your screen. But at the same time, it does have some downsides. It’s not really possible to type at speed as the buttons frequently, if pressed too hard or in the wrong place, double (iiee you offften fiind youu”ve typped soometthing liike thiss) The feel is OK, but overall it kind of reminds me of a Sinclair Spectrum – remember them?
Another factor that causes problems is that not all keys are present, and those that are aren’t always in the same place. There’s no right shift key, which you’re likely to hit out of habit. The quotation marks are by the arrow keys, rather than near the Enter key. += is by Backspace. There’s a row of dedicated function keys at the top of the keyboard, but most of these appear to be non-functional on my tablet.
The major advantage of the keyboard is that it’s somewhat nicer to type on than the screen, and that the screen doesn’t get messed up by having a huge keyboard occupy a third of it when you use it.
Overall some compromises need to be made to make a useful device and they’re not bad, but you need to bear them in mind. The keyboard will not turn your tablet into a Netbook, but this keyboard is definitely better than the on screen keyboards by a few order of magnitudes. And the price is good too.
The Right Choice!
If you like pink, the color is perfect–much like the color of bubble gum. The size is perfect–only 1″ thick with ipad & keyboard closed inside. The case’s fold-over design is perfect for either using the keyboard flat in front of you, or you can fold the closure flap under and use the keyboard at an elevated angle. The keyboard has a soft rubber feel–not hard like a traditional keyboard–you may have to adjust to the texture & touch pressure difference. The initial bluetooth connection was as easy as turning on a small switch on the side of the keyboard, pressing the connect button on the keyboard & waiting 5 seconds for the ipad to recognize the device & make connection. The case folds up nicely–leaving access to easily charge your ipad.
So far, the only complaint I have is that I wish my ipad would power off when I close the case like my Roocase does. Not really a big deal–just have to push the easily accessible ipad power button (just a nice added feature the Roocase offers!) In all, very happy! This is truly the RIGHT CHOICE–exactly what I was looking for–and at a GREAT PRICE POINT! Don’t pay double when you don’t have to!
Way better than expected
- Very nice price
- Small, but not too small. Very portable.
- I received it fast, in 2 days.
- Aesthetically awesome.
- It is kinda loud typing on it
- The buttons go in a little too far, sometimes I fumble typing on it because of that.
- No End, Home, Page up/down, delete keys. (delete is backspace)
For someone on a budget needing a Bluetooth keyboard, this one is pretty great.
Update: still works great after 3 months and I am glad I made the purchase. One negative I’ve found is that after having the keyboard connected to my nexus 7 for a long period of time it sometimes, rarely, will cause my nexus to not register touch as well. I just restart it and its fine but it is a negative. Still for the price and function I still give it five stars
