2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, February 19, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this as a Valentine's Day gift for my wife. However, with the company describes as a "bomb" turned out to be much more of a fizzle. No effervescence, and little smell except what was in the box when we opened it. A disappointment in every sense.

That being said however, Valentine's Day was stiff still pretty nice for us.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful if you're sailing Holland America, but much less so for other cruise lines, February 16, 2016
Not bad, and occasionally entertaining, but heavily focused on Holland America and not generalizable to other cruise lines. More a personal memoire than a guideline.

5.0 out of 5 stars My dog would inhale these if I stored them in a more easily accessible location., January 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have used these with several dogs, and have always been happy with this product. My bichon would inhale them if I stored them in a more easily accessible location. They are effective, and clearly lots cheaper than doggy-donture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unit failed on first use, January 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Installed in September 0f 2015, hoping to preempt the problems caused by last winter's New England winter. During last week's 1st snow of the season the unit failed. Quality control is clearly an issue here.

I will followup with the vendor to see if they make any attempt at remediation. More on this as it unfolds.

4.0 out of 5 stars The New Trent NT38B is an excellent product that provides good protection for your iPad when ..., August 21, 2015
The New Trent NT38B is an excellent product that provides good protection for your iPad when you're traveling, and a reasonably responsive and well laid-out keyboard for when you're inputting data. I've looked at several iPad keyboard/clamshell cases, and for older iPads this one is about as good as it gets. That being said however, there are still several shortcomings. Whether individually or collectively these should send you elsewhere is of course a matter of personal choice. For me, shortcomings notwithstanding, this will be my go-to iPad travel case.

I looked at this and compared it to New Trent's recently released (gen 3) case for the new iPad Air. Warning: I've been in the computer business for 30 years, and tend to be quite critical about shortcomings in released products.

Here's what I found:

The case:
This is sturdy, and provides good support for the iPad in both landscape and portrait mode. The swivel mechanism differs from the one used on the gen 3 case for the IPad Air, but it’s well-designed and provides support even when the screen is tilted back at a sharp angle. Tilt angle can be a big deal when on a plane, but this case provides all the angles and support anyone could ever want

The latching mechanism used to keep the clamshell closed however is under-designed and does not keep the clamshell shut. Because the purpose of the clamshell is to protect the iPad this is a serious flaw, as there is nothing to prevent the case from flopping open and exposing the iPad itself (minus 1 star for this).The latch used on the case for the IPad Air is far superior, and completely reliable. If New Trent moves the new latch over to this product, that it would be an inexpensive and extremely useful upgrade if there is another version of this in the works.

The keyboard:
Keyboard action is good, and the competent typists in my family all liked it. At the very least it was judged to be far superior to the on-screen keyboard.

The manual:
You will certainly find this useful, but it is LOADED with vocabulary, spelling and grammatical errors. The installation section, for example, contains five sentences and averages two errors per sentence. There are approximately 20 errors on the next page (including one that was pretty funny). A 10 minute review by a qualified editor could have fixed those problems and would have made this brief document far more professional.

Etc.:
Lithium-ion batteries of course don’t last forever. The box says this one is good for 500 recharges: at approximately 8 hours per charge, this should yield 4000 hours of use. Based on that, you should be able to figure out how long this case will last you. Obviously, mileage will vary depending on how much you use your iPad.

Suggestions:
1. It would be nice to see a battery indicator that shows how much charge exists in the case.
2. Contract with an English major and fix the manual.

Summary:
It’s not quite as good as the one for the newer IPad Air product line, but it’s still pretty darn good. I’d spend money on this one.
