3.0 out of 5 stars Review and Comparison January 14, 2011

This video goes over some of the features of the kensington iPad case plus keyboard. It also compares it to the Menotek iPad Bluetooth Keyboard Plus Snap On Case For Apple iPad 3G and Wifi models 16GB, 32GB, 64GB. I chose to compare it against the Menotek one because it was the only one I could find on Amazon that was a different design. There are too many other ones on Amazon that have the same design as the Kensington one. I found that the material that the kensington one was made out of was very good. It was fake leather but still was good. One of my biggest issues with it was the stability of the case. It would easily push back or fall if you are not careful how you touch the screen. I found that the Menotek one was better in stability, and you can take out the keyboard from the case to use with the iPhone. The video goes over more in detail about this. The keyboard of both items was exactly the same. 1 said Kensington and the other Menotek. So, there was no difference in that. I will be looking for other items to compare against that will be different and hopefully update the review soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good design, buggy tech November 19, 2010
I have a slightly different perspective than the other reviewers. I bought this because I do a lot of iPadding on the train and wanted an all in one keyboard/case. The form factor is OK. The keyboard is small, but that's somewhat expected. It's definitely easier than typing on the touchscreen. The faux leather is of good quality and is holding up nicely. The problems I'm having are with the keyboard double-typing. Every other word it double types a letter. I'm a pretty fast typer, so I don't know if that's the issue or what, but it's to the point where it's unusable for typing long emails, which defeats the purpose of the thing. I also am having issues with the bluetooth pairing being forgotten. I've had to re-pair it 4 or 5 times. I contacted technical support about both issues and haven't heard back yet. If there is a resolution, I'll update this listing. Right now, my suggestion is to not purchase this item. Great concept, bad execution.

UPDATE: Per the comments below, the vendor has sent me an updated unit and the above issues with the keyboard typing and pairing has been resolved. Raising review from 2 to 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, just a few key placement quibbles October 25, 2010

It's a great product in the Kensington tradition: well built, lightweight, protects your iPad. Even can be used in a non-keyboard setting (i.e. just a case to use while reading your iPad.) Some say you can't use it on your lap, but a nice lap desk (think Levenger) makes that possible, too. Big improvement over the on-screen keyboard. A little annoying to have to connect to the keyboard with Bluetooth every time you've been away. But so much faster to type. Only the Apple iPad dock has better speed, and it's not a traveling tool like this one. This keyboard recognizes and includes the cursor arrows, unlike some iPad writing apps whose softkey keyboards do not. I wish there were a shift key on both sides of this keyboard, and the apostrophe key has its own key that's not in an intuitive place. So far, very happy with this product. In a way, this makes the iPad a great alternative to the new MacBook Air, which at first glance seems like an iPad with an attached keyboard. Ron Seybold, BitesOfApple.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable Accessory!! November 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
When I purchased my iPad, I needed a better keyboard (better than the screen keys) for typing. I'm a touch typist and I need the feel of the keys. I also didn't want to carry around a separate keyboard. This product meets my needs.

First, the case is well made. It is rugged and provides excellent protection for my iPad.

Second, the keyboard connected easily and the battery life is outstanding. I've been using it off and on for about two weeks without having to recharge it.

As an added bonus, I was able to connect my iPhone 4 via Bluetooth.

Yes, the keyboard is a little small. However, a larger keyboard would make the total size of the case larger than I would like.

For those simply looking for a case without a keyboard, I highly recommend SimpleSleeve for iPad, Grantwood Technology's Premium Protective Neoprene Sleeve for the Apple iPad (16GB, 32GB, 64GB Wi-Fi and WiFi + 3G), BLACK

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good tool - just a few minor issues January 2, 2011
I received this item for Christmas and am actually writing this review on the Padfolio keyboard. I have been looking for a wireless keyboard so I can do more writing on the iPad, which I absolutely love! This product has met my expectations. I know several reviewers have given negative reviews to the keyboard, but I have found no real issues writing with it. As noted by others, I would like to have a right shift key, but I can understand the tradeoff between keyboard space and functionality. I still have an occasional issue searching for the right shift key, but I've overcome it.

Now onto the very positive things about this item. First, the case itself is very attractive. It looks very professional, almost like a traditional legal pad holder. The protection offered by the casing is also very sound. The frame around the iPad screen is thick enough to protect the iPad screen from falling to the floor. The stand is also very sound. I was wondering if I would use the Padfolio even if I wasn't using the keyboard, and I do. I like the adjustable nature of the stand.

The biggest issue I have with this item, and the reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is because I don't like how I have to enter a four-digit key each time I connect the keyboard via Bluetooth. I am not sure why Kensington decided to adopt this procedure compared to how my cell phone automatically picks up my Bluetooth headset, but I do not like this feature. As others have noted, it can be a pain to reconnect the keyboard and enter a new four-digit key to start typing again.

I do like this keyboard a great deal, despite some of the feature issues. It is a worthy investment for anyone looking to expand the iPad's functionality. I am looking forward to taking the iPad as my only computing device on a future trip to see how functional the combination of the padfolio and iPad is for basic computing tasks like e-mail and basic word processing.
