Pros: Works as intended; always a nice option. It's the only one I've seen with a handy slot to hold your tablet up, makes it look somewhat like a docking station. Has a "chicklet" style keyboard, which makes touch-typing possible for me; I need to feel each key distinctly, there are about 3mm between these keys. Battery life seems excellent as long as you don't leave it on for a week or two at a time, apparently there is no automatic shut off.
Cons: Its USB port is for charging only, so that it's useless with cheaper tablets that have no Bluetooth. While the cover looks pretty good, it isn't very functional, It's a cheap grade of PU imitation leather. I wound up ripping it off and spacing the back of the keyboard up about 2cm for a better angle. The metallic-finished plastic case is somewhat flimsy (so don't throw it down the stairwell). The slot for the tablet is not adjustable, so while it works for thinner tabs, anything over about 9mm stands straight up and seems in danger of falling onto the keys.
Other Thoughts: I cannot believe no one else has bothered to write a review of this handy little thing. I just bought another, I may leave the cover on this one. It would be nice if it had USB connectivity as well as Bluetooth, and I'd pay half again as much if it actually had a USB hub with another couple ports for, say, a mouse and maybe a universal card reader.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive. Nice looking case, has a rubberized back, will probably take more abuse than most. Boots up very quickly. Play Store easily installed.
Cons: The display is terrible. The display is horrible. The display makes the tablet nearly useless. The usable viewing angle is roughly 3 degrees, meaning that you cannot get a clear view of any spot on the display with both eyes at once, and if you only use one eye, you must shift the angle of the display to see another spot, even if it's only an inch away from the first.
Other Thoughts: This thing might be good for a media streamer, it has an HDMI out. But you can get a refurb Roku for half what this costs. But I would not think of using it in any capacity that required actually viewing its screen.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does what it's supposed to, connects to tablet and inputs keystrokes. The cover, well, covers.
Cons: This is not the keyboard shown in the picture! I need a keyboard with discrete keys, either island style or raised so that there is space between them, in order to touch-type. The pic shows island-style keys, the device I received has flat square keys with no separation. Only good for hunt&peckers, and of course the tablet has a software keyboard for that. The cover is rather unimpressive also, but it does cover the tab and keyboard. For my Transformer 300 I had to remove two of the hooks, one of them sat squarely on both the power button and the volume button, but two diagonal hooks seem to hold the tab OK.
Other Thoughts: It's cheap, but at least it's not overpriced. This thing will work but it's not a great bargain, I got what I paid for.READ FULL REVIEW
