Most Liked Positive Review

 

Works as expected

Fits my Generation 1 iPad perfectly. Easy to set up and use. Only comments are: 1. Keys are very close together, so typing at any speed is difficult 2. Power switch is flimsy and tends to break off (this is my 2nd keyboard) Otherwise, does exactly what I need it to.

No front camera hole for iPad 2!!

The product description is wrong. It fits an iPad 2 but it is not made for it, as you can tell by the missing front camera hole.

No Right Shift KEY!

By

from Winter Wisconsin  -  Value Oriented

I thought this would make longer input on my iPad 2 easier. Not really that much easier because I am a touch keyboard person and everytime I want to capitalize a letter on the left half of the keyboard I have to stop and erase the = sign and then go back and put in the correct capital letter using the left shift key. How odd. Also another dislike is the keys have to be really smacked hard to make sure they respond correctly. The battery life is fantastic I have only charged it once since I purchsed the device. It also has a home button on it that I like very much. I don't have to reach up to the screen to press the one on the iPad.

Not too bad. I would buy again.

The keyboard works pretty well and setup is not difficult. It can take a couple seconds from the first time you press a key for the bluetooth connection to re-establish but I think that is normal for this type of device. My initial impression of a review that noted the lack of a right shift key was that the reviewer was overly critical, but it is a bit of a nuisance. If you are a touch typist you'll hit the = key (you will type =i instead of I).The only real flaw I found with the case is that it lacks a hole in the top center of the case where the light sensor is on the ipad (probably the same location as the front camera on the iPad2, there are no holes on the back for the rear camera on an iPad 2). It took me a couple of days to figure out why my iPad screen was so dim in a well lit room. I just measured the location and used a paper hole punch to make a hole. Now it's fine. Overall not too bad for [$]. You can pay $70-$100 for something similar.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
HAROLD F  I chose this item because it allowed me to stand my iPad upright and use a keyboard lying flat, similar to my PC. Much nicer for typing and it also protects my iPad when closed. I've dropped it a couple of times and I was worried that it might be damaged but my iPad and the keyboard still work perfect. It was a good purchase.
Shopper  How well did it work? Were you happy with it?
Andrew R  Reviewers rated this with an average rating of 3.9 stars (out of 5). 80% of the reviewers would recommend this unit to a friend.
