This review is from: Kensington Black KeyFolio Pro - Folio with Keyboard for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Model K97156US
Pros: Leather Bluetooth keyboard with Android shortcut keys Magnetic hold points (no velcro or snaps)
Cons: Does not support suspend function (read below) Does not have a cutout to charge the tablet when the case is closed. Cost a LOT of $$$ compared to similar products
Other Thoughts: Let me start off by saying that Kensington makes top quality products, and have come to expect only the best from them. That being said, I am going to be very critical in this review.
This case is VERY nice overall. Very soft leather, ridged design, great protection for the tablet. It has hidden magnetic strips inside to hold the keyboard location, tilt angle, and clasp. This result in almost endless possibilities when it comes to positions you can use. I have used this to hold the tablet everywhere, even upside down, and with the keyboard removed from the case.
The fully-removable Bluetooth keyboard is easy to type on, and has adequate spacing between the keys for large fingers. When I first connected it to the tablet, it ask me to type in a Bluetooth security key to confirm the connection, and then connected right away. Every time after that, as soon as you turn on the keyboard, it connects right away. It also has a lot of Android hot-keys and a FN key. The battery life on the keyboard is long, and last longer than the battery in the tablet under continuous use.
The case's cutouts are well placed and large enough to not be intrusive to the everyday things like speakers, buttons, and headphone jack. However, they do block the MicroSD slot. You cannot remove the MicroSD card without taking the tablet out of the case. (not a big deal) You also cannot charge the tablet when the case is closed. There is no cutout in the exterior of the case for the charging port. :(
The last thing I noticed was that this folio does not support the suspend function of the tablet when you close the folio. Ironically, the tablet DOES suspend when you fold the bottom keyboard section completely up against the back of the tablet (keyboard face against tablet back). THIS IS VERY AGGRAVATING!!! This is caused by the keyboard, not the case. Since I know what tells the Galaxy Tab 3 when to suspend, I figured out a little trick. If you rotate the keyboard around 180 degrees (inverted) from its normal position , it will then put the tablet to sleep when you close the folio (keyboard face against tablet face), and wake it up as soon as you open the folio.
