5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased October 7, 2012
By Vivian
Verified Purchase
I was worried about this product because there was only one review, (albeit a very good one) and it was cheaper than a few others out there. But I am very pleased with it. It looks nice, it's much lighter than I expected, the keyboard is smaller (which is expected) but easy to get used to. There are two slots for the cable and a stylus, and even though the slots are very small, if your stylus has a clippy part, it can easily clip on. I also like how secure the nexus seems in the case.

Only things I wished it also had was the automatic turn on/off function that some cases have and a button clasp as opposed to a magnetic one because those make me feel like it's more secure. It also doesn't connect through bluetooth so it uses up the mini usb hub.

But those functions weren't listed as part of its description, and really just personal preferences, so all in all... good product!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good deal but has a few annoying limitations November 26, 2012
By jobo
Verified Purchase
This keyboard worked immediately without any bugs nor need to install an application. Although I feel that I got a bargain, a few things began to annoy me after a couple days of use.

1. the power and volume buttons on the nexus 7 end up in awkward to reach positions when the tablet is mounted (no matter how you mount it).

2. you must press relatively hard on the buttons for a response compared to a typical keyboard (takes getting used to).

3. the size of the keyboard means you cant type well without looking at the keys.

4. the tablet is held in case/keyboard stands at an angle that is not the most comfortable for viewing. I would do better with a more laptop like angle.

5. I really though I would not mind the fact that this keyboard shared a microUSB port with the power cable. After getting the tablet, I realized I was wrong.

Even with all these annoyances, I would not pay 60$ for some of the tablet keyboards and cases available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value October 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
First of all, I received the item in just a few days, which was MUCH faster than the arrival date shown when I ordered it.
But the main thing I want to say about it is the remarkable quality for the price. I'm using it to type this review and the keyboard is amazingly high quality. And I've been in the computer industry for over 45 years, so I've used a few keyboards. Obviously it's smaller than a full sized keyboard, but it's infinitely better than the onscreen keyboard.
The case is very well made - my Nexus 7 fits very securely.
Would highly recommend this case to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bluetooth, but not bad! November 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
You might be thinking to yourself: "A _wired_ keyboard? How janky is that?" But actually it's not so bad! It means you don't have to charge the keyboard, and you don't have to fuss with pairing, or deal with dropouts or interference issues -- you just plug it in and it's ready to go, thanks to the N7's good USB host mode support. The keyboard itself is less bulky than comparable Bluetooth units. It _does_ mean you have to unplug the keyboard to charge the tablet. Also, you have a wire hanging around looking cheesy. (They try their best to make it a well sized, stylish wire.)

Like many other tablet keyboards, this is a soft folio case. That means that unlike a laptop, it doesn't have a stiff hinge to hold the screen at your preferred angle -- that hinge is floppy (faux) leather stuff. Instead, there is a little kickstand to prop up the screen. It holds it to one specific angle -- hope you like that angle. Using this on your lap (in bed, on a couch, ...) is workable, but a little fiddly. The spring clamp mechanism used to hold the tablet in place works quite nicely, and makes it a cinch to install or remove the tablet (you also have to hook up the wire of course). Other folio cases envelop the tablet in material, making it a lot harder to swap in and out.

The keyboard itself is O.K.. It's small of course! That's what you wanted, right? Something the size of your N7, not the size of a full blown laptop? But some people are surprised by that. I haven't had any issues with sticking keys or keys falling off, not yet at least. The keys are flat square wodges of plastic, not quite as nice as some other mini keyboards. For me that means an increasing error rate while I acclimate to the keyboard.

1.0 out of 5 stars This case destroyed my brand new Nexus 7 December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
Because of the storage location of the micro USB plug and how the case folds, it put excessive pressure on my screen and cracked it. The case that was supposed to protect my tablet actually destroyed it. When I first got the case I was a little concerned about the plug location and how the case folded. I should have trusted my intuition.

The tablet was fine when I put it back into the case in the car before walking into work. I folded the case shut and walked into the office. At no time was the device subjected to any stresses other than simply being carried in my hand. When I opened the case at my desk, the screen was shattered. The vertex of all the radial lines traced precisely to where the micro USB plug was stored. By refolding the case shut I could see that if it wasn't closed just right, the plug would leverage itself between the spine and the tablet screen.

In this day and age, I don't expect the manufacturer will make good on the cost of my Nexus 7, but I'll definitely be returning the case and will expect a full refund. Caveat emptor not only for this case but for a manufacturer that would let this get past design and testing.

This is a pretty cute case, my only issue is that it was way too small; there is no way an adult would be able to use this. It's probably more suitable for children. Read more
