10" Tablet Case
on 21 June 2011
I bought this case to protect my Archos 101 from dust and scratches at home and when in transit.
It is a very sturdy case and the keyboard is an added bonus as it effectively turns the tablet into a 10" netbook - very useful for emails and facebook if like me you're not so keen on touchscreens for quick typing.
The keyboard is integrated into the case and the usb connects to the tablet for instant plug and play. The case is held shut with a magnetic tab which is very effective and the tablet is held in place by four metal clips.
It is these clips which are the only thing that has caused me to give the tablet a lower rating - the product description offers this as a universally compatible case, however, the two side clips are in entirely the wrong place for my Archos 101. The left hand side clip touches the on/off switch and if I turn the tablet round it blocks the usb socket so I can't use the keyboard. The only option was to bend the left hand tab to stop it rubbing on the on/off switch which results in the tablet being loose in the case - not good from the portability point of view, but it's either that or waste the battery by having the tablet continually switch itself on and off.
In conclusion, it's a good, sturdy product and I would happily give it 5 stars if only it were fully compatible with the device I bought it for.
