New Trent Airbender Mini - Rugged: Water Resistant, Dirt and Shockproof Wireless Bluetooth iPad Mini Keyboard case (integrated screen protector)
New Trent Airbender Mini - Rugged: Water Resistant, Dirt and Shockproof Wireless Bluetooth iPad Mini Keyboard case (integrated screen protector)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great All-round protection for your iPad Mini!, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been looking at keyboard cases for a while and when my wife had to give her work iPad mini back with its keyboard case, I bought her one to replace it and then looked at choosing a decent case for her. I wanted to get her a case that provided her with functionality of a keyboard but protected the case particularly from the hands of our twins girls who are toddlers and love using our iPads. When perusing the different styles of keyboard case on the market the Airbender stood out and was our first choice.

The protection the case provides is second to none. The screen is well protected and the rubber protection also provides you with great grip. It was a little tricky to take the rubber skin off the plastic body and then unclip the two parts of the body to insert the iPad and even more so when removing the iPad from the case as I was worried I might break a clip.

I was really impressed with the stand which my wife and I have used with the keyboard attached and quite a bit without. It was great when watching a movie whether we laying in bed, sitting with it on our laps or placed on a table. What we also liked is that you still have the ability to use the iPad mini on its own by unclipping it from the stand if you need to.

The weight of the Airbender does make the whole unit heavier, but I think that is the price you pay for decent protection and functionality.

Charging was straight forward and the charge itself lasted over 4 days (a few light days use and others continuously for two or three of hour stretches). I just used my apple plug and the USB lead provided and it worked a treat!

Pairing the keyboard using Bluetooth was really easy and as soon as I opened an email, the keyboard kicked into action and I started typing straight away. The keyboard itself is relatively easy to use even though it is small. I have found that I do inadvertently hit the = button when instinctively trying to use the delete/backspace button, but I am sure I will get used to that.

The function keys like select, copy, cut and paste work well as do the escape to the previous screen, Volume up and down and play functions. If the iPad locks out then it can be activated using the escape button and then the passcode can be inputted as well as still having the touch screen option.

It took me a while to work out how to use the keyboard when using Pages, Numbers and Keynote, but once I had worked out that you need to touch the screen to engage the keyboard, it worked fine.

My wife and I have been really pleased with the Airbender and feel that for the price you are getting a bargain. It feels and looks like it is worth more. It has made me consider getting the same for my iPad 2!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this soundtrack, 5 April 2014

This review is from: Tron: Legacy (MP3 Download)
Was blown away by the soundtrack before I'd even seen the movie thank to the app which previewed the score written by Daft Punk. There are too many tracks to highlight as favourites so make your own mind up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Impressed, 5 April 2014

Had a Tefal iron before and was impressed. Found this really easy to fill use and like the fact that if left it automatically shuts down. Really glad I bought it - and before anyone asks yes I do all the ironing in our household!

I've nearly finished this book but couldn't wait to the end to write the review. I have found it both insightful and encouraging. Found it really useful for understand more of the nature of God and how that should shape the way we both regard and respond to Him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great service!, 31 Aug 2013

Recently had a waterman pen bought for me and struggled to find cartridges in my local shops. They were purchased and arrived quickly and have found unlike my Parker fountain pen the cartridge last a lot longer - not sure if that is anything to do with the pen or the ink but it has now become my pen of choice!
