This is from the perspective of owning the original iPad (first gen) for which there are VERY LIMITED choices for keyboard folios. By this I mean a cover that completely protects and encloses the iPad but opens up to provide an attached keyboard. Zagg makes a nice aluminum keyboard CASE for the first-gen iPad but I don't want a case.
Since buying my iPad I have had it in the original iPad case, which I like very much (except no keyboard). I've used it with an Apple Bluetooth keyboard, which is great (and also what I use with my Mac daily). The main problem with that solution is the keyboard isn't attached. Also, the Apple BT keyboard is a bit slow to connect when you do want to use it, and it lacks iPad specific keys.
Interestingly, the added weight of this Beatech product is almost exactly the same as the original iPad case plus the apple BT keyboard.
As for feature review? It's cheap, obviously. At this price it has to be. I think the Amazon price has dropped since I looked at this originally. I got it for a couple bucks less on eBay but if I was buying one now would get it from Amazon.
The design and form is what I wanted. The only issue is the keyboard. It is a rubbery membrane type (as expected). The trouble I have with it is keys repeating or not recording. If I slow down I do pretty well but I can't type fast on it without a lot of typos. Also, the only Shift key is to the left, and my habit is to use the one on the right so that slows me down.
That said, if I want to use it for sending an email of any length it sure beats the onscreen keyboard.Read more ›

Both have the same 16 5-star reviews. None of the reviewers have reviewed any non-Beatech products. Hmmm....
Well constructed, fits the TP nearly perfectly, the cutouts allow access to all functions.
Keyboard quickly pairs when switched on and is responsive to the touch.
Holds a charge very well.
Takes some getting used to, it's a rubbery-type keyboard that registers double-presses if you aren't fast with your release, and the apostrophe is in an odd location.
The adhesive that holds the keyboard to the leather is weak and a corner is coming up on mine, but I'm sure I can just glue it back down if it becomes a problem.
If you forget to switch the keyboard off the battery is guaranteed to be dead the next time you try to use it.

Case is bulky and Bluetooth keyboard looks cheap and stopped working after two weeks of owning it. Would not recommend buying it again.Published on April 30, 2013 by Rodney Hughley Jr
The keyboard is OK but keys do tend to stick so letters are written multiple times. Also, the case is made cheaply and the faux leather began rubbing of after about 1 month. Read morePublished on April 17, 2013 by rd
