Here is the bad news. The case isn't so great if you don't want to use the keyboard, which in my case (pardon the pun) is quite often. It would be nice if the keyboard could somehow flip out of the way, but its nearly impossible and becomes dead weight in this kind of usage.
And this is the larger problem with the case - the plastic shell. I have found that due to rubbing with the keyboard, the case is marring the edges of the iPad 2. Nothing bad, but very noticable. There should be no contact. But this happens because the case has to "snap" together when closed, if its not exactly right, the marring happens.
What would make this case a 11 out of 10 is if it used the exact same design - but instead of plastic, it has a nice leather exterior or some combination of the plastic and leather. And if the keyboard was removable in a way that made more sense with the case.
Again, this one has by far the best keyboard for your iPad 2, but the plastic case is as much a drawback and it is a benefit. For me, I will only use this case when I travel, otherwise I will use another leather case for daily and home use.
The only other negative thing I can say is that every time you use it on a plane or crowded space, people will ask you about it and who makes it (that is how I found out about it actually- asking the guy next to me on the plane). Be prepared to talk to people about it.
First of all, I am absolutely amazed by the battery life. I received the case on August 22nd 2012. I am writing this review on November 30th 2012, and to date, I have NOT had to plug in the case even ONCE to charge it! It is still running off whatever initial charge it shipped with. To be clear, that is NINETY-NINE (99) days of daily use (and I DO use it everyday, for work) without having to charge it. I've never owned anything computer accessory item that has lasted that long on a charge. It has FAR exceeded my expectations in that regard!
Beyond that, the keyboard functions quite well for me. The smaller size of the keys takes a bit to get used to, and I still fumble a little more frequently than I do on a full-size keyboard, but it's really not bad at all. The smaller form-factor is worth the convenience, in my opinion.
As far as pairing goes, I've never had a problem connecting to my iPhone or iPad via bluetooth. It always finds the devices quickly. Seamless.
Also, the case portion of the folio is a sturdy plastic that has a small amount of flex to it, which makes me confident that my iPad is safe within it. It does add a considerable amount of bulk to the tablet, but to me, that's the trade off for protecting your investment.
Overall, this case has made my iPad 2 a much more valuable asset. I used to carry my MacBook Pro to work everyday. Now I use this for my day to day applications, as it's much lighter and less bulky, but I can still send emails effectively with the keyboard, where as before, using the touchscreen keyboard was tedious and painfully slow compared to what I could do on the laptop. HIGHLY Recommended!!!

The battery finally emptied it's initial charge today, after regular use for 155 days. That's pretty amazing, if you ask me.
Hope this helps.
**** UPDATE 4/9/2014 ****
As of today, I have used this product almost daily since purchasing is on August 22nd, 2012. To date, I have charged this device a total of 3 times. Yes, that's correct THREE TIMES. I am beyond amazed at this product's battery life. I still have no problems getting it to pair with my ipad, and I am MORE than satisfied with this purchase.
