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
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.
Heavier than the tab!
- Stylish, looks very neat
- Setup is a breeze
- The case+keyboard is heavier than my tab
- The tab fits in exactly. What this means is that taking the tab in/out of the case is a pain. Considering the amount of effort required, I am afraid of damaging the tab. But this can be disregarded if you don’t plan to remove the tab often
- There is a significant lag when typing. Also, if you type fast (as I’m used to), a lot of keystrokes get missed
- The flap with the magnet (protruding below the space bar key in the image) doesn’t stay flat – it stays curved and hinders typing to some extent
- The instructions supplied were for the iPad
A Great Product for a Great Price!
