ok, if you use your tab as a coaster.
on 6 February 2013
Well I'm using the keyboard to write this review, so it works.
And it looks nice, I will give it that.
But it needs to do more than that for the money. it clips over the screen ok and holds the device fine, and the function keys would come in handy, so all in all it does what it says on the tin. where it really drops in stars is as a stand. the little flick up hinge doesnt open correctly, so you have to fix it in place before you cn put aything on it. one false move and the tablet slips from the tiny grove that holds it in place. Considering the slightly rounded edges of the Samsung, this should be deeper. You can only use it on a flat, solid surface, or it slips out again. I havent tried portrait for fear of dropping the tablet, as it balances precariously on the tiny plastic plate hlding it.Your more in danger of breaking your tablet whilst using this than any other situation that would require this product.
Its also quite annoying connecting the device, im still having to type in a code to pair it and the on button is awkward to switch on and off.
So overall its a great screen protector and should keep the screen free of cracks and scratches of anything hitting it directly, and the keyboard works. but as a stand its quite bad, and if i drop my tab im sure the cover will just pop off, not to mention it covers none of the sides or back of the tablet, as it only clips on, so for the money, there are better designed and more suitable products out there. Like I said, i have had more close calls dropping my tab than before i bought this product.
